The San Diego Padres placed outfielder Jeremy Hermida on the 15-day disabled list Saturday with a strained left adductor and recalled outfielder Blake Tekotte from Triple-A Tucson. The DL move is retroactive to April 27. Hermida, 28, is hitting .250 (6-for-24) in 13 games this season. Tekotte, a third-round pick in 2008, made his major-league debut last year and appeared in 11 games.

Tekotte gets the call

Outfielder Blake Tekotte joined the San Diego Padres yesterday, his third stint with the team since last season. The Padres sent OF Jeremy Hermida to the 15-day DL with a groin injury as the corresponding move. So, what will Tekotte’s role be? Most likely, the Padres see him as a straight replacement for Hermida. He’ll see action every few days, getting 1-2 starts per week. He...

A To Do List For Incoming Ownership

Now that it seems to be just a matter of time before John Moores sells the Padres (again), here’s a checklist of things the incoming owners, whoever they may be, should consider before they walk in the door at Petco Park. These are just my suggestions but if the new owner(s) want to get off to a good start with the fans here in San Diego they might want to take this list seriously...

Kotsay delivers what was expected for Padres

The Padres acquired Mark Kotsay as a free agent last winter with hopes he would deliver leadership in the clubhouse and provide some much-needed help from the left side of the plate off the bench. Well, nothing helps boost the morale of a 5-14 team quite like a game-winning, two-run, pinch-hit double, which is what Kotsay delivered in the eighth inning Thursday night to help the...

Daily Friar 4.29.12

And the bid for the Padres to win three games in a row was stolen from them. One play at first base changed the outcome of this game, and I think that it is sad really. Anthony Bass pitched a heck of a game and deserved a better outcome then what he got. If you can pitch 8 innings of complete game ball you should be able to pull out the win. The offense, defense and the umpires made...

Cole Hamels "Signed" a Lifetime Contract with the Padres

Cole Hamels is SUPPOSED to be one of the top free agents available at the end of this baseball season, but not if the San Diego Padres have anything to say about it. Upon Colbert Hamels' (Colbert!) birth, his mother, an employee of the Padres at the time, signed a LIFETIME contract for a robust $1 with the Padres then-head of marketing Andy Strasberg. Makes that $2M bonus Hamels...

Daily Friar 4.27.12

It's no secret that the Padres have been awful this season. They have yet to win a series, the best they've done is tie with the Phillies. I do have to give them credit though, they have done a decent job at winning at least one game to avoid a sweep. Of the 6 series that we've played so far, only 1 has been a sweep. The other have been 2-1 losses (minus the tie). The...

Madfriars' Farm Report: April 27

Yasmani Grandal hit a homer in his first plate appearance in three weeks to help set the tone for Tucson. Juan Oramas continues to struggle, digging a hole so deep even Nate Freiman can't climb out. Matt Jackson was dealing in Elsinore, while the TinCaps didn't give John much to watch.

Madfriars' Farm Report: April 29

Tim Stauffer made his first rehab appearance as he works the rust off in Elsinore. Nate Freiman continues to mash and now has more homers than either the TinCaps or Storm roster. Yasmani Grandal homers again in Tucson while a few big names are starting to get things going at the plate.

Daily Friar 4.28.12

The Padres have another winning streak going for them! For just the second time this season the Padres have a two game winning streak. They will try to make it three today, but they are going to have to do it against Tim Lincecum. This isn't the same Tim Lincecum that has won Cy Young awards. He has been having a down year so far. Either way it is still Tim Lincecum. So be sure...

Friars Fail To Capture First Series Win in San Francisco

The Padres came into AT&T Park looking for their first series win while trying to establish a winning streak with a three game series against the Giants. After an impressive win on Friday, the Padres dropped the next two against their bay area rival. Saturday’s loss was especially difficult to swallow with a controversial call enabled the Giants to rake the lead late in the...

Brewers-Padres Preview

San Diego Padres hitters haven't given much support to their improved pitching staff and rookie right-hander Joe Wieland has especially had trouble getting help from his teammates. Wieland will try again for his first major league victory when the Padres open a three-game series against the visiting Milwaukee Brewers on Monday night. San Diego has posted a 2.56 ERA over the...

O'Malley Family Looking to Buy Padres

John Moores, who recently inherited control of the Friars following Jeff Moorad's failed bid to purchase the club, is evidently not wasting any time moving forward with a second attempt to transfer ownership. Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reported this morning that Peter O'Malley, the former owner of the L.A. Dodgers and who recently failed in his bid to buy back his old club...
