Luebke, who is 3-1 with a 2.61 ERA, said he began to feel soreness in his elbow during his last start, a 5-3 win Friday at San Francisco.

Padres Insider: Injury updates & hitting streaks

LF Carlos Quentin will begin a rehab assignment with Class AAA Tucson on Tuesday, although his return to the Padres is still at least a week away. Quentin had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee March 19 to repair the meniscus and remove floating particles.

Daily Friar 5.2.12

In recent history May has been a pretty decent month for the Padres. Most of the May months in the past few years have given the team a winning reacord. I'm not necessarily that will be the case this season, but they are on the right foot. They won last night in the first game of May, and hope to carry that over into tonight. Cory Luebke is missing his start tonight though, so...

Former Brewer Suppan stings old squad

It had been 19 months since Jeff Suppan had last appeared in a major league game. But, the former Milwaukee Brewers pitcher, whose big contract and poor performance led to his eventual release from the team in June 2010, re-emerged from the minors as a member of the San Diego Padres to face his former team on Wednesday. And, in a game that would have ranked as one of Suppan'...

Padres 2, Brewers 0

Pinch-hitter Mark Kotsay belted a two-run homer with one out in the eighth to give the San Diego Padres a 2-0 win against the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday night. Kotsay, who played with Milwaukee last year, drove a 1-1 pitch from Francisco Rodriguez to right field. Will Venable was aboard on a single. It was Kotsay's fourth career pinch homer and his first since Aug. 9, 2002...

Winning game one of a three game series usually puts that team in a good position to take the series. Win game one, and then you have two more opportunities to win one more game to lock up the series. The Padres won game one against the Giants, had game two stolen from them, then came into game three knowing what they had to do. Game three didn't happen though. The offense was...

Friarhood - Taking a Swing at Cancer Together

Dear Friarhood and Friends, Steve approached me recently about an idea to round up and unite the Friarhood in an effort to start a fundraising campaign for Stand Up To Cancer (you may remember that in the last couple of years the Padres have been actively involved in this effort ). Despite my initial thoughts of “I’m simply to busy for this,” well, I have a hard time saying...

Suppan Sinks Brewers in Padres 5-0 Victory

When we all heard the word that Jeff Suppan was making the start against the Brewers today most thought this could be a chance for the bats to come alive.  Boy were they wrong as Suppan mastered the Milwaukee lineup in route to a 2nd straight shutout of the Brewers, winning 5-0.  More worriesome than that was the news that Mat Gamel is lost for the season with a torn ACL and our...

Daily Friar 5.3.12

San Diego collectively mourned the loss of a sports icon for the city. What Tony Gwynn is to San Diego baseball, Junior Seau was to San Diego football. I am sad that he is gone from the world, but at the same time happy that he isn't battling his own demons anymore. It's sad that he had to go the way he did though. That being said, the Padres gave this city exactly what they...
