Michel Baez remains unbeaten in Padres system

MLB Pipeline, like most trade publications, left Michel Baez outside an update of its top-100 prospects list. That could be rectified by season’s end. The 21-year-old Cuban continued a blistering start to his stateside career with five more dominant innings in low Single-A Fort Wayne’s 2-1 win

Chargers to work out Robert Griffin III

Since Philip Rivers became the Chargers’ starting quarterback, whoever has served as his backup has had one of the NFL’s most predictable jobs. You stand, on the sideline, probably in an officially licensed ball cap, maybe signaling in plays, maybe holding the ball on extra points and field goals

Padres mailbag: Is A.J. Preller overplaying his Hand?

At 43-55 overall, the Padres entered Monday with a 10-8 record in July. With even a passable homestand, they can celebrate their first winning month of the season. That, of course, is not the trending topic. The July 31 non-waiver trade deadline is les…

Adrian Morejon rebounds in Tri-City win

Adrian Morejon rebounded from his worst start as a pro with his best. The 18-year-old left-hander struck out a career-high eight over six shutout innings in short-season Tri-City’s 4-0 win over visiting Eugene on Sunday. Morejon scattered four hits while lowing his ERA to 3.57 in the no-decision.

Schimpf hits two homers; Urias sprains ankle

Ryan Schimpf homered two more times and drove in four runs and Nick Schulz and Colling Cowgill both went deep in Triple-A El Paso’s 12-6 win over Omaha on Saturday night. Schimpf’s two homers gives him 12 since he was demoted to the Chihuahuas (50-50). He is hitting .254 with 27 RBIs. Schultz

Padres fall on Giants’ 12th-inning walk-off

Luis Perdomo collected his third triple of 2017 on Saturday, accomplishing something that hadn’t been done in a decade. No pitcher had tripled as many times in a season since Dontrelle Willis in 2007. But soon after Perdomo’s fourth-inning drive gave the Padres a three-run lead, another trio

Padres’ Nick Buss closing in on PCL batting title race

Nick Buss is about 11 plate appearances short of pacing the race for the 2017 Pacific Coast League batting title. The 30-year-old outfielder is on the Padres’ map, anyway, after fighting through Triple-A El Paso’s crowded outfield picture. “The truth is,” Padres manager Andy Green said, “Nick

Trade candidate Trevor Cahill falters before Padres win a marathon

There’s a good chance that Trevor Cahill’s roughest start in a Padres uniform won’t be his last start in a Padres uniform. The pitcher coughed up a season-high six runs in a marathon Friday at AT&T Park — after 11 innings and nearly five hours, the Padres clinched a 12-9 victory — and interested

Cal Quantrill a tough-luck loser for Missions

Cal Quantrill lost his first Double-A game on Friday night. He deserved batter. The 22-year-old right-hander allowed a solo homer in 6 2/3 innings, the lone run in San Antonio’s 1-0 loss to host Frisco. Quantrill (0-1, 3.75) struck out five and allowed six hits and a walk. The run crossed the plate

Padres players among those speaking out about Venezuelan crisis

Yangervis Solarte had hoped to return to his native country this winter. After the Padres infielder lost his wife to cancer in September, his mother moved to the U.S. to live with his three daughters. Solarte has other relatives he would like his children to meet. But the risk has become too great. “

Carter Capps records save for El Paso

Carter Capps is closing games again – in Triple-A. Just perhaps for not much longer. The 26-year-old right-hander struck out two over two perfect innings for his first post Tommy John save in El Paso’s 5-3 win over Sacramento on Thursday night. With the effort, Capps (2.79) hasn’t allowed an

Cory Spangenberg’s blast lifts Padres over Giants

This appears to be an alternate universe. The Padres, who began this season as baseball’s most obvious rebuilders, won a 5-2 game Thursday at AT&T Park. The last-place Giants, who began this season attempting to build on their storied history, dropped to five games behind the young team in the visiting

Austin Hedges rejoins Padres after addressing vision issue

Late last Friday, after taking an especially vicious foul ball off his face mask, Austin Hedges supposedly was feeling fine. Over the next few days, however, his attempts to prepare for game action ended in frustation. After being scratched from Monday’s lineup in Denver, he left the Padres and returned

Pedro Avila fans 11 in TinCaps’ win; Javier Guerra promoted
