Notes from El Paso: Dinelson Lamet rehabs

The bats were alive for both teams as the El Paso Chihuahuas beat the Oklahoma City Dodgers by a score of 10-7.

Dinelson Lamet’s rehab start is the story of the game...at least the one I am focusing on...but the offensive explosion certainly makes a great case. The quick reaction is that these Chihuahuas can hit.

The star with the bat was Jose Pirela, who collected two hits and three RBIs. One of those was a homerun. Luis Urias also went deep in his first at bat. With 12 team hits, this...

Padres win wild one with late comeback, historic offensive assault

Record breaking series for runs scored since 1929

On June 16th the Padres and Rockies took the field to close out their four-game series. Much like the other 3 games, neither side seemed to remember that half of baseball is also playing defense. It looked like players from both teams were getting dizzy from running around the bases all weekend, as they broke the MLB four-game series runs scored record. Combined, the two teams totaled 92 runs, beating the previous record of 88 runs scored by...

Padres pitcher Matt Strahm ejected for encouraging teammate

San Diego Padres lefty Matt Strahm was on the receiving end of one of the season’s more ridiculous ejections over the weekend. Strahm was one of three Padres tossed from Saturday’s contest against the Colorado Rockies along with infielder Manny Machado and manager Andy Green. Strahm was not even in the game but was yelling from the top of the dugout steps. Afterward, Padres reporter Bob Scanlan revealed that Strahm was essentially ejected for shouting words of encouragement to teammate...

Kirby Yates finds a home in San Diego

33 year old Journeyman will undoubtedly represent the Padres in the All-Star game

Wonderful piece written here by Bob Nightengale about Kirby Yates. I love hearing about his journey and how he prepares. Incredible story. Does Kirby have the stuff to be an elite pitcher into his late 30’s? With his Splitter, I’d say yes.

“Yates, who was relying solely on his fastball and slider, started experimenting with a split-finger pitch that winter. He never got a chance to use it with the...

Andy Green and Manny Machado get ejected from Rockies game

Padres take another loss in the Rockies series

On June 15th the Padres took on the Rockies in the third of a four-game series. Some people say baseball is boring, but if you were able to watch tonight’s game, I have a feeling you would disagree. The padres were able to get themselves three ejections throughout the game. Manny Machado struck out in the 5th inning and did not hide his feelings about it. After voicing his opinion on the called strike 3, Machado was ejected by home plate...

Report: “Overwhelming offer” needed for Padres to trade Yates

According to MLB.com’s AJ Cassavell, the Padres would need an “overwhelming offer” to trade closer Kirby Yates. Of course, this news comes on the heels of a separate report indicating that the front office is listening on almost all of their position players, so perhaps it’s worth considering why, exactly, the Padres would hold off on dealing Yates—a past-thirty reliever with presumably high trade value. As the article explains:

First, the Padres think there’s a reasonable path...

Late night thriller ends in a win for the Padres

Renfroe’s 3 homer game plays role in victory

On June 14th the Padres went head to head against the Colorado Rockies for game two of their four game series. Coming into this game the Padres had dropped 7 of their last ten games, and they were in desperate need of some good news.

Cal Quantrill got the start and things were touch and go for a while as the Rockies scored 4 runs off their 6 hits with Quantrill on the mound. Although he was not as efficient as we would have liked, Andy Green...

Report: Padres willing to trade most position players

A major bomb was dropped by the Union-Tribune’s Kevin Acee last night, as reported on by MLB Trade Rumors. According to Acee, this year’s deadline could pretty much be open season on any Padre position player not named Tatis, Machado, or Hosmer. The following from MLBTR’s reportage:

The Padres’ goal in dealing from its current position player cast would be to upgrade offensively at two spots – catcher and center field – and add “young arms,” per Acee. Their desire to pick up...

Padres Pitcher Matt Strahm Takes The Loss Against Rockies

Padres Lost Fifth Game In A Row

On June 13th, the Padres took the loss against the Colorado Rockies in the first of a four-game series. After losing the last four games, the Padres could have used the win to boost morale for the fans and the team. Unfortunately, with the team’s struggle both offensively and defensively, the win wasn’t in the cards for them.

So far this season, all the talk about the Padres has been on the rookie Tatis Jr. and the pitching staff for the team. The...

Padres willing to trade most position players

Padres outfielder Hunter Renfroe has come up in trade rumors this week, and the club is indeed willing to deal the 27-year-old slugger, Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports. However, Renfroe is not the only Padre who could end up on the move before the July 31 trade deadline. The team’s willing to give up “virtually” any of its position players except for shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr., third baseman Manny Machado and first baseman Eric Hosmer, according to Acee. The...

Q&A with Andrew Mitchel

The San Diego Padres selected LHP Andrew Mitchel out of San Jose State in the eighth round of the 2019 MLB draft. Since then he has signed, and is gearing up to start his professional journey.

A quick look at his player profile on San Jose State’s website shows a more than impressive resume. His achievements include honors like First Team All-Mountain West, Mountain West Co-Pitcher of the Year, and Second Team ABCA/Rawlings West All-Region.

San Diego’s newest southpaw took some time to...

Padres send Paddack down in a logical, not so surprising move

Team has been clear since day 1 they will limit his innings

Chris Paddack is unquestionably the current and future Ace of the Padres. After a tough month, he owns a 3.15 ERA. He’s 4-4 and has generally kept the team in every game.

So, why send him down?

1st, he’s thrown 65 innings. The most innings he’s thrown since 2015 is 90 innings... which was last year. This isn’t treating him with kid gloves, it’s just logical. They’re limiting his workload as responsibly as they...
