  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Tosses bullpen session Saturday

    Musgrove (elbow) threw 30 pitches in a bullpen session Saturday, the Associated Press reports.

    The bullpen was Musgrove's second since he went on the injured list June 1. The right-hander threw almost exclusively fastballs in his first session Wednesday, per MLB.com, and plans to increase his intensity as his throwing sessions progress. Padres manager Mike Shildt said Saturday that Musgrove is "clearly getting closer" to a return, though a target date for his activation hasn't yet been established.

  • Padres' Luis Arraez: Nabs steal in win

    Arraez went 1-for-3 with two walks, one RBI and one stolen base in Saturday's 7-0 win over the Guardians.

    While Arraez has no trouble getting on base, he typically doesn't run much. His steal Saturday was his fourth of the year, matching his career high from 2022. The infielder is batting .292 (14-for-48) over 12 contests in July, though that's put him on a slight decline with a .312/.347/.382 slash line through 95 contests between the Padres and Marlins this season. Arraez has battled a thumb injury recently, which caused him to miss the All-Star Game, so it's likely he'll get most of the playing time at designated hitter in the immediate future, though Jake Cronenworth started there Saturday.

  • Padres' Jake Cronenworth: Homers in Saturday's win

    Cronenworth went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run, a hit-by-pitch and an additional RBI in Saturday's 7-0 win over the Guardians.

    Cronenworth was part of both of the Padres' rallies in the contest. He was plunked with the bases loaded to force in a run in the fourth inning before going deep in the eighth. The infielder is batting .267 (12-for-45) with four extra-base hits and five RBI over 13 games in July. For the year, he's at a .260/.328/.438 slash line, 14 homers, 58 RBI, 50 runs scored, 19 doubles, two triples and two stolen bases through 96 contests. Cronenworth is likely to remain in the lineup regularly, though it's expected he'll move between first base and designated hitter most of the time, sharing those positions with Luis Arraez.

  • Padres' David Peralta: Knocks second homer

    Peralta went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, a walk and an additional run scored in Saturday's 7-0 win over the Guardians.

    Peralta has hit both of his homers this season in July, and he's batting .333 (12-for-36) this month. The outfielder padded the Padres' lead with his eighth-inning blast. Peralta has added a .255/.320/.362 slash line, 10 RBI, 11 runs scored, four doubles and no stolen bases over 103 plate appearances. He continues to occupy the strong side of a platoon in right field in the absence of Fernando Tatis (quad).

  • Padres' Dylan Cease: Dominant in Saturday's win

    Cease (9-8) allowed one hit and one walk while striking out 10 over seven shutout innings to earn the win Saturday over the Guardians.

    In three of his last five starts, Cease has delivered one-hit ball, though this was arguably his most dominant outing of the season. It was also his fourth start of the year with double-digit strikeouts. Cease is now at a 3.76 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 159:37 K:BB through 122 innings over 21 starts. He's projected for a road start versus Washington next week, though that could become a more challenging assignment at Baltimore if the Padres opt to call up a fifth starter for their first time through the rotation after the All-Star break.

  • Padres' Kyle Higashioka: Resting Saturday

    Higashioka isn't in the Padres' lineup for Saturday's game against Cleveland.

    Higashioka went 0-for-2 with a walk during Friday's loss, and he'll now get a day to regroup after being held hitless in each of his last three games. Luis Campusano will take over behind the plate and bat ninth.

  • Padres' Matt Waldron: Quality start wasted Friday

    Waldron (5-9) took the loss Friday as the Padres fell 7-0 to the Guardians, allowing one run on six hits over six innings. He struck out five without walking a batter.

    The knuckleballer was sharp in his ninth quality start of the season, tossing 66 of 97 pitches for strikes, but he had no margin for error as San Diego's offense was ice cold coming out of the All-Star break. Waldron has worked at least six innings in nine of his last 10 trips to the mound, posting a 2.59 ERA, 0.94 WHIP and 47:12 K:BB through 62.2 innings over that stretch. He lines up to make his next outing on the road next week against the Nationals.

  • Padres' Luis Arraez: In lineup Friday

    Arraez (thumb) will DH and bat leadoff for Friday's game against the Guardians.

    Arraez has been nursing a jammed left thumb and opted to sit out the All-Star Game to let the injury heal. However, the issue won't require him to miss any time for the Padres, and he'll fill his regular leadoff spot during Friday's series opener against Cleveland. The 27-year-old is slashing .310/.342/.378 across 416 plate appearances this season.

  • Padres' Jagger Haynes: Struggling to find zone at High-A

    Haynes has accrued a 4.23 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 56:40 K:BB across 66 innings over 14 appearances (13 starts) with High-A Fort Wayne this season.

    A 2020 fifth-round pick for the Padres, Haynes didn't make his professional debut until April 14, 2023 after a prolonged recovery from Tommy John surgery. After making 11 starts for Single-A Lake Elsinore in 2023, Haynes has jumped up a level in 2024, but he hasn't demonstrated much progress in honing his command, which had been a concern dating back to his prep days. The 21-year-old lefty stands at 6-foot-3 and 170 pounds and lacks a reliable third pitch beyond his fastball and curveball, and he could be ticketed for the bullpen in the long term.

  • Padres' Fernando Tatis: Receives good news from MRI

    An MRI this week on Tatis' injured right quadricep showed improved healing, and the outfielder is expected to incrementally increase his baseball activities, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Tatis -- who is recovering from a femoral stress reaction -- has already begun playing catch and swinging a bat. A clearer timetable for Tatis' return from the 10-day injured list is unlikely to be available until he resumes running with no issues, but he certainly looks to be trending in a good direction.

  • Padres' Carson Montgomery: Shut down with injury

    Single-A Lake Elsinore placed Montgomery on its 7-day injured list April 27 with an unspecified injury.

    Montgomery's absence is closing in on three months, but the Padres haven't provided any details regarding his injury nor offered word on if he's on track to pitch again in 2024. The 21-year-old right-hander made three appearances (two starts) for Lake Elsinore before landing on the shelf, striking out 10 over seven innings while allowing three earned runs on four hits and six walks.

  • Padres' Tirso Ornelas: Added to 40-man roster

    The Padres selected Ornelas' contract and optioned him to Triple-A El Paso on Wednesday.

    Ornelas has spent the entire 2024 season at El Paso, slashing .316/.390/.515 with 12 home runs and five stolen bases across 310 plate appearances. Though he'll remain with El Paso coming out of the All-Star break, the 24-year-old outfielder is now a part of the Padres' 40-man roster. The transaction should improve his chances of receiving his first big-league call-up at some point later this season.

  • Padres' Leodalis De Vries: As advertised at Single-A

    De Vries is slashing .266/.389/.506 with five home runs, five steals and a 23.2 percent strikeout rate in his last 20 games for Single-A Lake Elsinore.

    The consensus top prospect in this year's Jan. 15 international signing class, De Vries was aggressively assigned to Single-A for his pro debut as a 17-year-old. He struggled to start the year but has quickly found his footing and is showcasing five-category fantasy upside.

  • Padres' Luis Arraez: Out of All-Star Game with thumb injury

    Arraez will attend All-Star festivities in Texas but won't play for the National League in Tuesday's game due to a jammed left thumb, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Arraez first hurt the thumb while sliding into third base June 25. He has played in all but two of San Diego's games since then, most recently sitting out Sunday's 6-3 loss to Atlanta. While Arraez has mostly been able to remain in the lineup despite the injury, he admitted that the thumb hurts "a lot" when he swings and catches the ball. The issue probably won't be anything that causes him to miss much, if any, additional time in games that count, but he'll use the All-Star break to rest the jammed thumb rather than risking further injury in the exhibition contest.
