The Sean O’Sullivan experiment may be over as the Padres announced Monday afternoon that the club has decided to designate the 25-year old right hander for assignment. O’Sullivan’s departure from the roster was corresponded with the recall of RHP Brad Boxberger; with O’Sullivan being DFA’d, the Padres now have only 39 active members on their official 40-man roster.
O’Sullivan had pitched decently well in game he had started this season, surrendering only 4 earned runs over 17.1 innings (2.07 ERA when starting). Pitching in relief was a different story, however, giving up 6 earned runs over 7.2 innings (7.04 ERA in relief).
Overall, O’Sullivan posted a 0-2 record with a combined 3.96 ERA in 7 games this season with 25 innings pitched. The Padres picked O’Sullivan up as a free agent in the offseason where he was signed to a major league contract; he sports a lifetime 5.89 ERA over four major league seasons.
On the other side of this transaction, reliever Brad Boxberger will be making ...
BEST OF MAXIM
SO CLOSE YET SO FAR
Your browser does not support iframes. San Diego Padres first baseman Yonder Alonso was charged with an error on a routine grounder when he somehow lost track of the bag at first during Sunday's game at Petco Park. It happened in the second inning as New York Mets batter Juan Lagares hit a chopper to the left side of the infield that was tracked down by pitcher Eric Stults...
Who is Will Venable?
We know about his hairline. We know he went to Princeton. We know about his dad, former major leaguer Max Venable. We’ve seen Will’s highlights. We’ve suffered through his lowlights. But really, what kind of player is he?
2009: .256/.323/.440 with 12 home runs and a 108 wRC+ in 324 PA’s
2010: .245/.324/.408 with 13 home runs and a 101 wRC+ in 445 PA’s...
Led by a 4 RBI night from Jose Urena, the AZL Padres beat the AZL Reds 7-4. The Missions and the TinCaps won due to excellent starts from Eddie Bonine and Zach Eflin, respectively. The T-Pads lost a close game by 1, but every member of their starting lineup had at least 1 hit.

The Padres’ bats finally woke up and scored some runs. What might be even crazier is that Edinson Volquez only gave up two runs (and just two walks!) and the bullpen went four innings of no hit ball as well. Definitely a well played game on both ends as Nick Hundley and Jedd Gyorko had home runs and Will Venable put up a 4 for 5 night. The rubber match is this afternoon as Eric...
Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after a Sunday afternoon in the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were (day) drinking.
Padres. Will Venable. Walk-off home run.
Eric Stults pitched 6 2/3 innings, giving up 3 runs on 6 hits & 2 walks with 5 K’s. Nick Hundley went 3-for-3 with 1 walk & scored a run.
The Padres returned home from their unsatisfying road trip to host a four game series against a team who also had been struggling offensively. What was the result of the long series; a split. The Mets took the first two games while the Friars finished off the weekend with two straight victories of their own.
Here are my five points of interest from this last weekends contest against...
Catcher Nick Hundley celebrated the birth of his daughter with a tie-breaking two-run homer; Jedd Gyorko hit a three-run homer and Edinson Volquez allowed two runs over five innings to record his 20th win as a Padre Saturday night.
Center fielder Will Venable equaled his career high with four hits to extend his career-best hitting streak to 14 straight games. Venable who scored...

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after a night in the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.
Saturday’s game wasn’t looking too good for Padres fans. Not only was Edinson Volquez starting, but Chase Headley was getting a day off. Logan Forsythe started at third base for Headley.
New dad Nick Hundley was activated from the...
Half the farm had the day off, but the teams that did play all had bright spots. The T-Pads had an all around dominating game while the Emeralds won a close 1 run game. Even though the TinCaps lost 12-5, their 1st baseman, Diego Goris, had a home run and 3 RBI.

Will Venable hit a leadoff homer in the ninth inning to give the San Diego Padres a 4-3 victory over the New York Mets on Sunday.
Venable sent a 1-2 pitch from Pedro Feliciano (0-2) just inside the right-field foul pole for his team-high 17th home run, increasing his career high. Venable, who also drove in a run in the fifth, extended his career-best hitting streak to 15 games,...
This season has afforded the Padres few positives. Sunday's 4-3 walk-off victory over the Mets featured at least a couple even if they represented small triumphs amid a larger grimmer picture.
For starters New York ace Matt Harvey was done after just 86 pitches for a team mindful of its 24-year-old prodigy's accumulating workload. The Padres were not beaten by Harvey against...
On a positive note, the Padres out hit the Pirates yesterday six hits to five. Unfortunately, that’s the only positive I could find offensively, because overall, the team struggled to put the ball in play, striking out 17 times last night. Andrew Cashner had another solid outing for the Friars wasted, allowing three runs, one earned, and walking only two batters over seven innings...
Just so no one’s offended, I want to make one thing very clear: I am not here to be overly critical of Tyson Ross, baseball player. Tyson Ross is a pretty good baseball player, who’s succeeding at his primary job. Right now he’s sitting on an ERA in the mid-2s. Over eight starts with the […]
