Josh Naylor dominating in return to Cal League

The marching orders were simple when the Padres sent Josh Naylor back to the California League: Dominate. Save for a two-week spell on the disabled list, the 19-year-old first baseman is doing just that in his second go-round with high Single-A Lake El…

Jacob Nix a winner for Storm in 2017 debut

Jacob Nix made his long-awaited 2017 debut Friday night. It was a good first step. Held back in extended spring training due to a groin injury, the 21-year-old right-hander struck out five over five solid innings in high Single-A Lake Elsinore’s 9-2 win over Visalia at The Diamond. The 6-foot-4,

Manuel Margot likely headed to disabled list

Padres center fielder Manuel Margot was wearing a walking boot Friday for precautionary reasons, manager Andy Green said, but the presence of the device did not bode well. After tweaking his right calf Tuesday and being removed from a game Wednesday, M…

Manuel Margot out with sore calf

Before Manuel Margot exited Wednesday’s victory with a sore right calf, the Padres had planned to rest the center fielder on Thursday. Margot, a rookie, had started 46 of the season’s first 48 games. On Thursday, Margot’s injury was revealed to be more serious than initially hoped. “He’

Dickerson: Chargers have ‘great shot’ to outdo Rams

Unwinding at a San Diego resort Sunday, former Los Angeles Rams great Eric Dickerson recalled his reaction 15 months ago upon learning that NFL owners had just given the San Diego Chargers the choice of joining the Rams in L.A. “I thought that was a joke – the Chargers coming to L.A.,” Dickerson said

Fernando Tatis Jr. already a man among boys at Fort Wayne

The son of a minor league player, Fernando Tatis smashed a total of 113 homers in 11 years with five big league teams, including 34 in one breakthrough season as a raw 24-year-old out of the Dominican Republic. Two of those blasts – grand slams – famously exited Dodger Stadium in the same inning in April

Villanueva, El Paso bats put on show

As often is the case in the Pacific Coast League, everyone was in on the action in Triple-A El Paso’s 14-5 win over Salt Lake on Tuesday. Not only did everyone in the starting lineup have a hit, four Chihuahuas homered, including Christian Villanueva (.323), who hit his fifth of the season and drove

Old song of ailing Bolts WRs still plays as rookie ails

Philip Rivers is a Titanium Man like few others in NFL history, flinging footballs every year without having missed one single NFL start, appearing on only a smattering of official injury reports since his first start way back in 2006. The uneven nature of Rivers’ wideouts staying healthy is surfacing

Jose Pirela continues power surge at El Paso

Jose Pirela’s power surge continued. It was not enough to left Triple-A El Paso to a win. The 27-year-old Pirela hit his ninth homer of the season and seventh in his last nine games in a 4-3 loss on Monday to visiting Oklahoma City. Pirela also doubled in a two-hit game that lifted his average to

Padres mailbag: Will ownership commit to the rebuild?

At 16-30, the Padres have the worst record in the majors. Their minus-85 run differential also ranks last, another illustration of how ugly it’s gotten. Should they keep this up for a few more months, they’ll end with the worst run differential since the 2003 Tigers. That Detroit team lost 119
