CBS Sports' Jon Heyman hears that the Mariners are considering signing Xavier Nady.

Xavier Nady hit his team-high third home run Thursday in the Padres' loss to the Rockies.

Nady is just 4-for-20 and the solo homers have given him his only RBI. Still, as much as the Padres are struggling for offense, they might decide to turn to him more often now. Besides Nady, their only player with multiple homers is Seth Smith, and his came in the first two games.
