Found March 23, 2013 on Friarhood:
The Padres were back in action last night under the Peoria lights against the Mariners. Tyson Ross had another outstanding game as he looks to take over the number five spot in the rotation. Coming into last night’s game he was riding an 11 1/3 scoreless inning streak. That streak came to end in the fifth inning via a Kelly Shoppach home run. It proved to be the only run that Ross would give up as he was pulled after 4 2/3 innings of work. The best stat for me though is that in those innings he struck out six. The offense was nonexistent last night against a very tough Felix Hernandez, thus the reason the Padres lost. There was no Daily Friar yesterday as some of you may have noticed, so there is a lot to get to today in regards to news from yesterday and today.

Padres Release Freddy Garcia

Today the Padres have released Freddy Garcia. Josh Byrnes signed Garcia to a minor league contract and Spring Training invite with hopes that he could be a veteran presence inside the clubhouse for the younger pitchers.

Jeff Suppan to run for Congress if he continues to suck at baseball (Or Jeff Suppan to run for Congress)

In a surprising turn of events, former Brewers pitcher Jeff Suppan is still trying to pitch in the major leagues. When the Brewers released Jeff Suppan in 2010 (Keyboard Cat, never forget) many wondered if that was the end of his baseball playing career, but he ended up pitching for the Cardinals that season. After that most of us assumed that he would retire to his California restaurant...

Rockies hit 3 HRs off Garcia, beat Padres 10-4

Todd Helton, Wilin Rosario and Josh Rutledge all homered off San Diego starter Freddy Garcia as the Colorado Rockies beat the Padres 10-4 on Saturday night. A non-roster invitee to camp, the 36-year-old Garcia allowed seven runs - three earned - in five innings. His spring ERA dropped to 8.71, but the outing likely did little to help him gain ground on Tyson Ross in the competition...

Minor League Camp Report: March 23

Padres vs. Royals - AA/AAA games LHP Clayton Richard and RHP Luke Gregerson both got innings at the beginning of the two games today. Gregerson looked a little better than Richards but its foolish to see much into performances of established major league pitchers on the back fields of a minor league complex.
