San Diego Padres News: Regular Season and Preseason Updates
12/5/13: Jaff Decker, a minor league prospect with the Padres had been rumored to be on the trading block, and there was a lot of speculation that the New York Mets were interested. The Padres found a trading partner with the Pittsburgh Pirates and send Decker and Miles Mikolas for Eastern League Rookie of the Year Alex Dickerson. Decker played decently last year in triple-A ball, but his stock has fallen in recent years. Dickerson, however, is a rising talent - starring in both the Florida State league and double-A for the last two seasons. He has played first base, but the Padres are expected to put him in the outfield.
11/28/13: San Diego took a step at rebuilding their rotation by signing pitcher Josh Johnson to a one year, $8 million deal. Johnson is a former Cy Young candidate who has struggled for the past few years. The Padres are betting on a bounce back year and Johnson looks to parlay this deal into a larger and longer one after the 2014 season. He was one of the best pitchers in MLB from 2009-12 with the Florida/Miami Marlins. He posted an ERA under 3.00 and a 1.15 WHIP in 101 starts. He struggled last season in Toronto, but could be a great signing for the Padres.
11/21/13: The Padres really have one highly coveted asset, and that is third baseman Chase Headley. San Diego did not trade him last season as they could not get a deal they wanted for him, and pulled him off waivers in September, again because they could not find a trade that gave them what they wanted. Since then, it was assumed that San Diego would try to sign Headley to an extension. However, it is being reported that the there is a growing movement within the organization to trade Headley in order to address several areas of need. Considering the gap between the Padres and the top of the Division, this may be the better long-term solution.
11/14/13: Opportunity may be falling into the lap of the San Diego Padres. The Toronto Blue Jays opted not to give starting pitcher Josh Johnson a qualifying offer, making him a free agent. It was not too long ago that Johnson was a stud young pitcher in the Marlins organization and got shipped out to Toronto when Miami decided to gut their team a couple years ago. The Padres certainly could use a top of the rotation guy, especially in their cavernous ballpark. It remains to be seen who else is interested in Johnson, but the Padres certainly should be.
11/7/13: While the Padres did not sniff the playoffs this past season, it should not be forgotten that they finished in third place in the NL West - ahead of both San Francisco Giants and the Colorado Rockies. While no one in the West is on par with the Dodgers in terms of money or talent, the Padres could improve their rotation and add a few bats as well as a corner outfielder. Like several other teams, the Padres may be interested in Bronson Arroyo as a veteran arm. They may also have interest in Tampa Bay's James Loney, if they are willing to open up the wallet a little bit to bring in a bigger free agent name this offseason.
10/31/13: The Padres have not made much noise since the end of the regular season and may not do much in the offseason. There are questions about re-signing Chase Headley and acquiring pitcher Phil Hughes, but those will probably wait until the World Series is over. The biggest rumor surrounding the team is that Brad Ausmus may be a candidate to replace Jim Leyland in Detroit. Ausmus was once a Tigers player and is young enough to relate to the current crop of stars that are looking to make the next step. Leyland stepped down as manager last week but is expected to stay within the organization.
10/24/13: It is anyone's guess as to what the Padres are planning to do this offseason. They did not field a decent team in 2013 and finished at the bottom of the NL West. It did not help that their speed guy, Evereth Cabrerra, was suspended for 50 games for his involvement with the Biogenesis scandal (note to fantasy baseball players - pick up Cabrerra to bolster your steals ranking). Aside from that, Chase Headley is the obvious big name, but that also makes him a bargaining chip for a trade to get several prospects in return.
10/17/13: With Joe Girardi off the market (he signed an extension to stay manager of the New York Yankees), the Cubs are looking elsewhere for a new bench boss. One possibility is Padres' bench coach Rick Renteria. The Cubs are expected to meet with Renteria soon. Renteria played in the majors from 1986 to 1994. He has coached in both the minor and major leagues since, and also managed the 2013 Mexican National Team in the World Baseball Classic. Chicago needs someone to relate to their young talent, and Renteria may be a steal, despite his relative anonymity.
10/10/13: Just up I-5, the Dodgers' fans are enjoying the playoffs and looking for a World Series championship. In San Diego, the Padres are trying to get healthy. For 2014. Star third baseman Chase Headley and pitcher Tyson Ross had surgery this past week and are currently rehabbing. Headley had a procedure on his knee from a torn meniscus that has bothered him since spring training. Ross had surgery on his partially dislocated shoulder dating back to April. Both should be ready for the next season, though there is a chance either could be traded this offseason.
9/26/13: San Diego is simply riding out the season at this point and trying to see what they have for next year. They did get 7.2 scoreless innings out of starter Robbie Erlin last week on their way to a 2-0 win. Of course, that game was against the Dodgers' backups. L.A. gave many of their stars a rest after clinching the division. But that was just temporary. L.A. brought back Clayton Kershaw the following night and blanked the Padres 4-0. A lethargic offense has plagued San Diego all season, so they really need to find some bats for the 2014 campaign.
9/19/13: Forget about the Padres record for a minute and appreciate that this team can find closers. Despite a dismal season, Padres' reliever Huston Street was able to record his 30th save of the year. It came in a 4-3 win over the Braves, where the Padres rallied to win. In their history, the Padres have Trevor Hoffman - the man who set the standard for closers. San Diego brought him back into the family this past week, naming him to a front office post in player development. Mo Rivera will go down as the greatest closer in history, but Hoffman is the man that set the bar.
9/12/13: Not that it really matters at this point, but the Padres have snuck into third place in the NL West. They are still a mile out of a playoff spot, but they are ahead of the San Francisco Giants (defending World Series Champs) and the Colorado Rockies (a sleeper team in 2014). The question still remains what the team will do with Chase Headley. Time will tell if they try to sign him to a long term contract and build around him or if they opt to trade him for prospects and maybe some draft picks. The good news for the Padres is that it only gets better from here.
9/4/13: The San Diego Padres put Chase Headley on waivers with the hope that he would pass through and the team could then trade him. That did not work out as he was claimed, so the Padres pulled him back. Now the team must figure out what to do with Headley - trade him or sign him to a long term deal. The Padres could upgrade their pitching staff by acquiring Phil Hughes, whom the Yankees seem to have no more use for, and that (combined with Headley) would give them a bit of a boost. Evereth Cabrerra will return from suspension next year and he provides a lot of speed. So the Padres are not in as bad of shape as many may believe, but they must take some action in the offseason to compete next year.
8/29/13: The Padres made the move of placing their star third baseman, Chase Headly, on waivers last week. If he passes through waivers, then he could be an interesting trade piece for a playoff team. Boston seems to be the most likely place to go. The Red Sox are in contention for the NL East or a wild card spot and have shown in the past they are willing to make big moves. A change of scenery may be good for Headly as well. He is a very good player stuck on a terrible team. Getting to a contender may be the best thing for his career.
8/22/13: The Padres are getting used to the Cubs' motto of "Wait until next year". This season is now a wash for them, especially since one of their most dynamic players, Evereth Cabrerra, is suspended for 50 games for his role in the Biogenises scandal. Cabrerra led the National League in steals for most of the season, emerging as the biggest base stealing threat the league has seen in years. That fits in well with playing at the cavernous Petco Park. Unfortunately for the Padres, they will have to wait until 2014 before they can fully exploit his speed.
8/15/13: The Padres are already looking toward the future, and recently signed the leading hitter in the Can-Am league to a minor league contract. Bridger Hunt is anticipating his second stint in affiliated ball. He was drafted in the ninth round by the Dodgers in 2006, but never made it past AA ball. The Padres are also rumored to be interested in Yankees' starting pitcher Phil Hughes in the offseason. San Diego could use an upgrade in pitching, and getting out of New York may be exactly what Hughes needs as well in order to reinvigorate his career.
8/8/13: Technically, the Padres are not out of the running in the NL West. Realistically, they need to concern themselves for next year. One of the more haunting items is infielder Evereth Cabrerra. Cabrerra has a great season going and leads the league in steals. However, he is linked to the Biogenisis case and could end up with a lengthy suspension. The Padres did not make any major deals at the trade deadline, so maybe they are hoping to just take their poison now and try to compete in the division next season - which would not be a bad choice.
8/1/13: Where do the Padres go from here? The team has a history of being near the cellar for several years then winning the division every now and then. This is another one of their down seasons. They are tied with the defending World Series Champion San Francisco Giants for last place in the NL West and are nine games behind the division leading L.A. Dodgers. They do not have the resources of major market teams and are in danger of becoming the Royals-West. Expect the team to make some deals at the trade deadline, including Chase Headly as the team needs to develop a lot of talent from within.
7/25/13: It has been an up and down year for the Padres. They lost 15 of their first 20 games, then went on a big hot streak for the next 30 games and found themselves in the mix in the NL West. Then they lost 11 in a row and fell back to the cellar. The record and winning percentage are not likely to change - not as long as they are still devoid of top notch talent at key positions. But ace pitcher Jake Peavy is coming back soon, and he may easily be the best trading chip in the whole league. There are plenty of contending teams who would like a top of the rotation guy, and he is signed through 2014.
7/18/13: The Padres entered the All-Star Break at 42-54. However, since they are in the NL West, they are not completely out of the competition for the division crown yet. They are in last place in the division, but only 8.5 games out of first. If they were in any other National League division the season would have been long over. In their favor is that Carlos Quentin continues to rake. What they need, though, is for his teammates to follow his lead and start hitting the ball over the next couple of months if they are to have any shot at all.
7/11/13: The Padres have to be happy that shortstop Evereth Cabrerra is finally back in the lineup after being out with injury for the past several weeks. Cabrerra is hitting .300 on the year and leads the league in steals. He has been named a reserve player for the All-Star Game as well. The Pardres are within striking distance of the NL West crown. The entire division is still up for grabs, and no team has made the move to dominate the others. With Cabrerra back in the line up, the Padres may be able to jump start themselves to the crown.
6/27/13: The Padres are not the doormat that everyone thought they would be this year. Almost half way through the season, and the team is not only above .500, but is in third place in the ultra-competitive NL West. More importantly, they are only 3.5 games out of first place. With the National League having some excellent teams, the West is likely to only send the division champ to the playoffs. The other two wild card spots will probably go to the second and third NL Central teams or the second place Central and second place East teams. In any case, the Padres are keeping it interesting so far, and this bodes well for their future.
6/20/13: At least they are better than the Dodgers. Well, that is not a fair statement. The Padres are at 500. While winning half of your games and losing the other half is not a recipe for a championship, it should be taken in perspective. The reality is that the Padres are in 4th place in the NL West. However, they are only 3 games out of first. That means that if they can keep competing, keep overachieving, and maybe get a little bit of luck, then they can make a run for a playoff spot. That would be an amazing feat for a team that was roundly expected to be last in the division this season. And it helps that the Dodgers have been terrible.
6/6/13: The San Diego Padres have spent most of their existence in mediocrity. There have been the occasion bright season. This is not one of those seasons. The Padres are in fourth place in the NL West, but ahead of the hated Dodgers and their $230 million payroll. In truth, they are not too bad off. They are six games out of first - they just have to go through the Arizona Diamondbacks, San Francisco Giants, and Colorado Rockies. The team did select Hunter Renfroe with their first round pick in the draft last week. Renfroe is an outfielder from Mississippi State who was previously selected by the Red Sox in 2010.
6/6/13: The good news for the Padres is that they are not the worst team in the league, or even the division. The $230 million Dodgers are bringing up last place in the NL West - and that should be something for Padres fans to smile about. To be reasonable, no one expects San Diego to compete for the division crown this year. It is true that the team is within striking distance - only 5.5 games out. But they will have to go through San Francisco, Arizona, and Colorado to win the division. But by all accounts this is a successful year, and another solid draft could put the Padres in the pennant chase.
5/23/13: Between suspension and injuries the players who are eligible to return to play with the San Diego Padres are Yesmani Grandal, Clayton Richard, Cameron Maybin and Logan Forsythe. The Cardinals' Tyler Lyons made his major league debut against the Padres on Wednesday night. They had a couple of wins between Saturday and Monday but suffered a 10-2 loss on Tuesday. A season high of five bases were stolen by the Padres in Sunday's 13-4 win over Washington. On Monday Carlos Quentin slid into home plate awkwardly and is currently nursing a sore knee. The Padres will be trying to finish their 7 game homestand with a winning record.
10/2/12 ? For the second straight month, San Diego Padres third baseman Chase Headley was named the National League Player of the Month for September. Headley continued where he left off in August and swung a hot bat the final month of the season. He batted .324 and hit nine homers and drove in a league- leading 30 RBIs. He is the first player to have back-to-back months with 30 -or-more RBIs since Albert Pujols did it in 2006. He is also the first Padres player since Ken Caminiti to win the award twice in a season. The 28-year old Headley finishes the year hitting .286 with 31 home runs and 115 runs-batted- in.
Clayton Richard continued to struggle and the San DIego Padres could not recover as they dropped a 6-0 ball game to the Atlanta Braves on Tuesday night. Richard pitched 6.1 innings, allowing five earned runs on nine hits and zero walks. He also added a strikeout over the course of his 102 pitches en route to his 12th loss of the season. Offensively for San Diego, not much was going on - the team scattered just five hits and were 0-4 with runners in scoring position. Yonder Alonso had the premiere performance, going 2-4 to raise his average to .276 on the year thus far.
Clayton Richard was phenomenal as his complete game shutout led the San Diego Padres to a 2-0 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Tuesday night at Petco Park. Richard allowed just five hits and two walks over his nine innings, picking up five strikeouts en route to his 9th victory of the season. The outing lowered his ERA to a respectable 3.79 for the 2012 campaign. Offensively, Will Venable and Yonder Alonso each had a run batted in, giving them 31 and 41 RBI's on the season thus far, respectively. While the team managed just six hits on the day against Cubs pitching, they did have two big ones with runners in scoring position to seal them the victory.
While Padres starter Edinson Volquez didn't have his best stuff, he kept his team in the game long enough to earn a victory as San Diego defeated the Cincinnati Reds by the score of 11-5 on Monday. Volquez lasted five innings, surrendering five earned runs on six hits and three walks. He also added five strikeouts en route to his seventh win of the year thus far. Offensively, Carlos Quentin added his 10th home run of the season in the eight off Reds reliever Jose Arredondo, while Edith Cabrera, Will Venable, Alexi Amarista and Yonder Alonso all also drove in runs in the winning effort.
Padres starter Edison Volquez pitched well, but it was not enough to earn a victory as San Diego dropped a close 3-2 ball game to the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday night. Volquez pitched seven innings, surrendering just two earned runs on three hits and three walks. He also added eight strikeouts on the day over the course of 109 pitches. Offensively, Volquez also added a run batted in, just one of two on the day for the entire San Diego team. Overall, the team hit a paltry 2-11 with runners in scoring position in support of the pitching staff. Chris Denorfia and Will Venable each added stolen bases on the day as well.
The San Diego Padres dropped the first game of a three game series against the Milwaukee Brewers in an 8-3 loss at Petco Park in San Diego. Starter Joe Weiland went to 0-4 on the season, giving up five earned runs in five innings, including two home runs to Ryan Braun. Weiland did, however, strike out eight batters through his 100 pitch effort. Right fielder Chris Denorfia was 2-3 with a couple of walks for San Diego on the offensive side of the ball. Randy Wolf picked up the victory for the Brewers, moving to 2-2 on the young season.
After a terrible 10 game stretch where the team went 3-7, the San Diego Padres currently sit at the bottom of the National League West with a 5-14 record, already eight games behind the division-leading Los Angeles Dodgers. With such a poor start, there hasn't been much to get excited about in San Diego other than the solid performance of young third basemen Chase Headley, whose four home runs and 13 RBI's currently lead the team. In addition to home runs and runs batted in, Headley also leading the team in batting average (.309), runs scored (14) and OPS (.975).
The San Diego Padres have not gotten off to the strong start that they had envisioned; instead, a 2-4 record through the first six games have landed them three games behind the division-leading Los Angeles Dodgers. Offensively, the team has looked anemic - of the regular starters, Jason Bartlett leads the team with a paltry .222 batting average, while Chase Headley has the team lead with 5 RBI's. Clayton Richard has paced the pitching staff thus far; in his first start, Richard went 7 strong innings without giving up a run. He also struck out three batters over his 83 pitches. The team looks to rebound against the 4-1 Arizona Diamondbacks in a three game series this weekend.
