Padres fans had to wait until June, but it has finally happened: Huston Street has gone on the DL. The injury is a strain to his left calf. The news was reported by MLB.com's Corey Brock, who said it was a not as severe as the calf problem that sent Street to the DL last season. #Padres CL Huston Street (left calf) is headed to DL. Same calf he injured a year ago, but different spot, different (lessened) severity. — Corey Brock (@FollowThePadres) June 1, 2013 Street injured his calf on August 10th last year and it took him six weeks to return to the big leagues. The information thus far suggests this problem should heal in closer to the 15-day minimum than that timeframe. Street also spent time on the DL last season with a strained lat muscle. Given his injury history, particularly in the calf area, San Diego will probably still be cautious with their closer to avoid aggravating the problem. Padres manager Bud Black said that Luke Gregerson would get the majority of the save chances with Street out, with Dale Thayer also in the mix. Gregerson has been an excellent set-up man for some time, with a 2.75 ERA and 3.22 strikeout-walk ratio in his 304.1 career innings. He has just 12 career saves, including 9 last season, 8 of them coming while Street was out with his calf issue. Thayer has only pitched 106 big-league innings with a less eye-catching ERA of 3.99 but his K/BB ratio of 4 is excellent. He also picked up 7 saves last year, including 5 in 5 appearances when Street made his first DL trip in May. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?

Remember when Clayton Richard had potential? I mean, not potential all-star potential, but solid middle of the rotation starter potential? I remember it like it was 3 years ago. It was 3 years ago. In 2010, Richard threw 200 innings for the first time. It was also the last time he struck out more 5 batters per 9 innings. That year Richard struck out nearly 7 per 9, gave up home runs...

Padres and Pints Drinking Game Rules

Every year though they sit in my un-published posts folder, rotting away in blogging purgatory never to be seen by any of you fine readers out there.

Haiku-arrhea: Week 9 in Padres Baseball

In an effort to stay close to our roots, the staff at Padres Public, will offer-up a haiku each Monday to describe the previous week in Padres Baseball. Restricting our feelings to 3 lines and 17 syllables to describe a week of play is a massive undertaking, but (un) fortunately, we are more than up to the task. The Padres finished the week 4-3, splitting 4 games with the Mariners...
