Pickoff perfectionist Richard utilizing move

On the mound, Clayton Richard is a perfectionist. That much holds true, even when he isn't throwing to the plate. The owner of one of the best pickoff moves in baseball, Richard again put it on full display Saturday afternoon, nabbing two over-aggressive Nationals baserunners.

San Diego Padres: Signs of progress soured by worrisome injuries

Despite the evident young talent on the San Diego Padres roster, the clubs progress has been slowed due to several key injuries. Already San Diego finds itself in the National League West cellar, a whopping 14 games out of first place. As the losses have mounted, there have been positive signs, like Dinelson Lamet’s first […] San Diego Padres: Signs of progress soured by worrisome injuries - Friars on Base - Friars on Base - A San Diego Padres Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Chacin looks for course correction on road

Joe Ross will aim to prove his breakout start on Tuesday wasn't a fluke as the Nationals look to sweep their three-game series against the Padres on Sunday afternoon. Padres right-hander Jhoulys Chacin, meanwhile, will look to contain a Nationals offense that leads the league in almost every category.

Padres call up Cordero for center field duty

The Padres recalled Franchy Cordero, their No. 23 prospect, on Saturday as a replacement for injured center fielder Manuel Margot. In 42 games with Triple-A El Paso, Cordero was hitting .289 with an .869 OPS and seven homers.

Padres place Manuel Margot on DL, call up Franchy Cordero

The 22-year-old prospect’s next major league game will be his first

In an expected move, the Padres finally placed center fielder and Rookie of the Year candidate Manuel Margot on the 10-day disabled list in order to let his strained right calf mend for the next eight days (the move is retroactive to Thursday, as he’s been sidelined since then). Less expected was who they called up to take his place on the roster; the defending Pacific Coast League champion El Paso Chihuahuas will have...

Padres Place Manuel Margot On DL, Promote Franchy Cordero

The Padres have announced that they’ve placed outfielder Manuel Margot on the 10-day DL, retroactive to Thursday, with a strained calf. To take his place on the active roster, they’ve recalled fellow outfielder Franchy Cordero from Triple-A El Paso. The Margot move is somewhat expected — Margot’s calf injury was already known, and he was wearing a walking boot yesterday. The center fielder was batting .259/.305/.389 in what figured to be his first full big-league season. As...

Nationals 5, Padres 1: Friars get Scherzered

It’s hard to win against one of the best pitchers in baseball.

Sometimes you draw the short straw, like having to face Max Scherzer in the opening game of a series. Luis Perdomo gave up three runs over six innings, but his offense went just 3-for-29 in 8.2 innings against the Nationals ace. The only Padres hitter to really get to Scherzer was Ryan Schimpf, who hit his twelfth bomb of the year in the fourth inning.

It was entirely a game of long balls, with everyone scoring on home runs....

Schimpf homers, but Padres stifled in loss

Max Scherzer delivered another stellar performance Friday night, nearly finishing off a complete game as he dominated the Padres offense for 8 2/3 innings to lead the Nats to a 5-1 victory.

Padres series preview: 5/26 - 5/28 at Washington

San Diego concludes their road trip with three games against the Nationals

After taking two of three from the Mets, the Padres head down the bizarro coast to face the NL East leading Nationals. Washington is also coming off a series win, having beaten the spiraling Mariners twice in three games at home. This will be the first time the two teams face each other this season.

The current Nationals roster has a few San Diego ties. Their bullpen features former Friars Oliver Perez and Shawn...

Orioles Outright Luis Sardinas

The Orioles announced that shortstop Luis Sardinas, whom they just claimed off waivers earlier this week, has now cleared waivers and been assigned outright to Triple-A Norfolk. By outrighting Sardinas, the O’s have opened a spot on their 40-man roster while still retaining control over the 24-year-old infielder. Sardinas once ranked among the game’s Top 100 prospects according to both MLB.com and Baseball Prospectus (2013-14), but his bat has never fully come around in either the upper...

Padres Preview: Luis Perdomo vs. Max Scherzer & the Washington Nationals

A future ace faces a current ace

To say that Dinelson Lamet was impressive in his MLB debut is an understatement. He showed confidence and poise on the mound, his stuff was excellent, and he had command throughout his outing. Now the team has traveled down the Atlantic coast to Washington, DC where they will kick off a three-game weekend series against the Nationals. It’s Luis Perdomo’s turn to take the hill for the Friars today.

For Perdomo, there’s nowhere else to go but up. His...

Padres 4, Mets 3: Lamet shines in debut

This is what the future looks like. In a terrible season, it’s important to focus on the bright spots, and Dinelson Lamet’s debut was absolutely a bright spot. Unless, of course, you were one of the eight Mets the rookie punched out. The one run Lamet allowed in his five innings of work came when he offered Lucas Duda a 95 mph fastball right down the middle. Outside of that, he gave up just two more hits and a pair of walks. The Friars had their pitcher’s back from the get go, with...
