Padres manager Bud Black says rookie starter Joe Wieland will be placed on the disabled due to discomfort in his right elbow.
Wieland (0-4, 4.55 ERA) will be the fourth Padres starter to go on the DL, although Tim Stauffer could be close to being activated.
Wieland's next start had been scheduled for Saturday at Philadelphia. The Padres are off Thursday.
Stauffer threw 78...
RHP Dale Thayer picked up his second save in as many nights Tuesday, raising his career total to three. Thayer has yet to allow a run in six appearances and gave up his first three hits as a Padre Tuesday night. One of those hits struck a runner. Thayer struck out Carlos Gonzalez with the tying runs on to end the game.
RF Will Venable scored the Padres' first run after tripling...
During last night's Padres/Rockies game, San Diego's Will Venable fouled off a pitch that reach the third base side of the stands at PetCo Park.
The ball itself was caught by a Padres fan in his beer and he decided to savor the moment by drinking the beer with the ball in it:

The Padres won their second series of the season with timely hitting, led by rookie first baseman Yonder Alonso, taking the first two games from the Rockies in San Diego. Alonso went 5-10 with four RBIs and two walks, raising his average to .292. The series also saw the first win by starter Edinson Volquez as well as another win from the ageless Jeff Suppan. The Padres will get a...
The Tincaps and Missions light up their opponents in blow-out wins. The Missions were led by mashing first baseman Nate Freiman, who is putting on a hitting clinic in the young Texas League season.

Jeff Suppan, who worked in the minor leagues throughout the 2010 season, scored his second win in as many starts with the Padres Tuesday night at Petco Park. Suppan worked his way out of a first-inning jam and gave up one run on four hits over five innings. He walked two and struck out one. The 37-year-old Suppan was promoted from Triple-A Tucson on May 2 to take the injured...
Everyone has been touched by cancer. If you're a Padres fan (which we all are!), we've been hit hard (pun not intended). We've seen longtime Padres bullpen catcher Mark Merila, first base coach Dave Roberts, bullpen coach Darrel Akerfelds, AAA Tucson pitcher Josh Geer and of course pitcher on the '84 roster Dave Dravecky bravely battle cancer. But perhaps what...
The Padres avoided a 4 game losing streak last night. The pitching stepped it up last night, and the offense got just enough done to beat the Rockies. They're only 3 games ahead of us, so if by some miracle we can pull out a sweep then we can possibly be a game behind them when it's all said and done. So close to getting out of the cellar! Here's hoping the Padres can...
Hey Everybody. It’s been a while but I’m back to give us inspiration to take time to watch our beloved Padres tonight. The last week had been a rough one for myself and several of those with ties to San Diego. The death of Junior Seau was very shocking to me because Junior had always been a very positive influence in my adolescence. He represented hard work, determination, and...
Will Venable tripled and scored in the first, then doubled in the go-ahead run in the fifth inning to back 37-year-old Jeff Suppan and lead the San Diego Padres to a 3-1 win against the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday night.
The Rockies lost their fifth straight.
Suppan (2-0), settled down after the first inning, when he allowed two hits and two walks but gave up only one run. He has...
What gets Dick Enberg excited during yet another San Diego Padres game? A young guy with a foul ball in his beer who then decides the proper response is to chug said beer. That was exactly what happened last night at Petco or whatever they’re calling the new Jack Murphy these days. Dick sits through inning after inning of boring Padres baseball and suddenly he has something to...
Yonder Alonso drove in two runs and the San Diego Padres beat the Colorado Rockies 3-2 Monday night to become the last NL team to get to 10 victories.
Edinson Volquez, obtained in an offseason trade with Cincinnati, got his first victory with the Padres, with some help from the bullpen.
The Rockies lost their fourth straight game and their shaky rotation took another hit. Left...
If you have been idly wasting your time and preparing for the end of the world correlating with the Mayan calendar dated December 21, 2012, perhaps, you've missed the sizzling play of the Texas Rangers Josh Hamilton.
Hamilton hit four home runs on May 8, 2012 against the Baltimore Orioles in an obvious sign of solidarity supporting the hypothesis the end is near based on the aforementioned...
I sincerely believed that May would be the Padres month. Opening it up with 2 wins after a lousy April, I thought that they could turn things around. Then the Marlins came into town and swept us fairly easily. We gave them some fight, but the fish got away. The Rockies come into town next. As far as I'm concerned with the way the Padres have been playing, I'm not even sure...
The T-Padres hammered their former teammate Wade LeBlanc in New Orleans and Adys Portillo pitched a gem in Fort Wayne. The bullpen exploded in Lake Elsinore after being given a big boost by rehabbing Padre Tim Stauffer.
