Found June 07, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
In a good news/bad news scenario, the San Diego Padres have made two roster moves.  They activated center fielder Cameron Maybin from the 15-day DL, but they also placed first baseman Yonder Alonso on the 15-day DL.  Maybin was scheduled to come off the DL, but Alonso was supposed to be able to avoid it.  That's no longer the case. Hang on. Alonso, in a surprising move, is now headed to the DL. — Corey Brock (@FollowThePadres) June 6, 2013 When the team knew Maybin was coming of the disabled list, they told Kyle Blanks to pack up and head back to Tucson because he was going back to Triple-A.  Blanks made it as far as San Diego (the team was in Los Angeles at the time) before being told to come back.  When the decision was made to place Alonso on the DL, the team needed Blanks back quickly.  He can play both the outfield and first base. Blogging for Susie Alonso injured his hand when he was hit by a pitch in the Blue Jays series.  The injury was thought to be minor enough to cost him just a couple games.  Unfortunately, Alonso has not improved.  The Padres decided some time on the DL and some rehab would probably be necessary. Maybin was battling a wrist impingement that landed him on the DL.  He was placed on the 15-day DL just when Chase Headley was returning.  So the Padres have yet to play with every player from the perceived Opening Day lineup on the field at the same time.  Once that happens, San Diego may get a little better. As it stands now, the Padres are 28-32.  They aren't all that far away from being .500.  And they are just six games back in the NL West. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?

Kyle Blanks’ Future Isn’t in Tucson… for Now

Kyle Blanks was supposed to be demoted to Triple-A Tucson on Thursday when center fielder Cameron Maybin returned from a lengthy stint on the disabled list. People were upset. Such injustice the world has never seen. Injustice, or hyperbole. I always confuse the two. Then Yonder Alonso’s hand, which was injured when he got hit by a pitch last week, didn’t improve. Alonso replaced...

Padres reinstate Maybin; place Alonso on DL

The San Diego Padres have reinstated outfielder Cameron Maybin and placed infielder Yonder Alonso on the 15-day disabled list. The moves were made before the Padres played the Colorado Rockies on Thursday. Maybin was hitting .091 for the Padres before going on the disabled list on April 17 with a right wrist injury. He batted .323 in nine rehabilitation games at Triple-A Tucson...

Pitch f/x: Pressing with Chase Headley

Yesterday I looked a Chase Headley’s struggles this season. We discovered that Chase was swinging and missing at more pitches but that he wasn’t swinging at the first pitch with anymore frequency (but when he did the results were terrible). We also learned that pitchers appear to have adjusted to Chase in 2013. He’s seeing a lot more change-ups and cutters. This information...

Padres and Pints w/Andy Masur and Ace from Knockaround

I had the amazing opportunity to host the latest Padres and Pints at the Knockaround Padres Pep Rally at Mission Brewery a few weeks back. In it we chat with Ace from Knockaround, Padres radio voice Andy Masur, Megan Olivi saves the day and rescues Beau’s intro like a true pro, we talk beer with Adam from Mission Brewery, plus we stump the likes of Ducksnorts and Ben Higgins in...

MLB Draft: San Diego Padres Select Hunter Renfroe 13th Overall

Hunter Renfroe was the 2013 first round pick of the San Diego Padres and 13th pick overall. Previously, Hunter Renfroe was drafted in the 2010 draft by the Boston Red Sox, but they failed to sign him. He spent the last three years playing outfield for Mississippi State. At Mississippi he built up a .352 batting average with 15 home runs and 54 RBI’s. While his strength at the plate...

Where Art Thou, Chase?

In his last two games Chase Headley is 3 for 9 with 2 walks and 1 strikeout, a marked improvement over the previous few weeks. But two decent games does not signify a slump, busted. A Padres Public reader asked the following last weekend: @ducksnorts @PadresPublic How about an analysis of why Chase is struggling so much lately? #sonofaduck — Clayton Tyler (@clayton_tyler) June...

Padres Draft Hunter Renfroe in First Round

With the 13th pick in the 2013 MLB Draft the Padres selected Hunter Renfroe out of Mississippi State – just as a few lucky PP writers predicted. High fives all around! Renfroe offers as extremely diverse skillset that – pardon the cliché – projects him a true five-tool talent. Originally selected in the 31st round of the 2010 draft, Renfroe was seen as a raw athlete (playing...

Cameron Maybin Reinstated from DL, Rejoins Padres

San Diego Padres center fielder Cameron Maybin will be reinstated today from the disabled list after missing the last 45 games due to a right wrist impingement.Maybin was placed on the 15-day DL on April 18 after injuring his right wrist on a defensive play in a game against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Monday, April 15. Maybin has dealt with discomfort in his right wrist over the...

Umpires blow two calls on same play in Padres-Rockies game (Video)

The San Diego Padres and Colorado Rockies played into extra innings on Thursday night, and the umpiring crew may have determined the outcome of the game. Or maybe they didn’t. Well, they certainly made things more confusing than they had to be. As you can see from the GIF above that GameReax shared with us, [...]

Padres add mix of talent on day 2

The San Diego Padres today selected eight players on the second day of Major League Baseball’s First-Year Player Draft. The 40-round draft concludes tomorrow with rounds 11-40.

Padres Go Offensive on First Day of the Draft

The Padres selected three offensive players, OF Hunter Renfroe, with the thirteenth overall pick, high school shortstop Dustin Peterson, in the second round, and high school outfielder Jordan Paroubeck, in the second supplemental round on the first day of the 2013 draft.

Padres 6, Rockies 5(12)

Pinch hitter Yasmani Grandal drove in the go-ahead run with a fielder's choice grounder in the 12th inning to lift the San Diego Padres to a 6-5 win over Colorado on Thursday night, snapping a six-game skid against the Rockies. With the bases loaded and one out, Grandal sent a chopper to third that Nolan Arenado fielded, quickly stepping on the bag and throwing low to first...

Nick Hundley’s fail throw over third base was impressive

I don’t blame him for immediately complaining about interference. I would do the same thing if I made a throw that terrible.

San Diego Padres announcing team joke about women in hot dog hats

It's not often that you get to see people wearing "hot dog hats" but during Tuesday's Dodgers/Padres game, a couple of female Dodgers fans donned them behind home plate. The San Diego announcing team of Dick Enberg and Mark Grant saw a shot of the young ladies and well, they enjoyed the look...I guess: (Courtesy of Bartstool Sports)

Umpires Blow Two Calls on Same Play in Extra Innings During Padres-Rockies Game (Video)

As a player, coach or spectator, you never want the outcome of a game to be left in the hands of an umpire. Too many times it will result in a letdown and ill-willed curses toward the crew chief. And while the two blown calls in Thursday night’s extra-inning affair between the San Diego Padres and Colorado Rockies did not determine the outcome of the game, it certainly made it...
