While You Were Drinking (O.J. and/or Coffee) 2014 Game 105 (SD at ATL)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy when you are working during the game that started at 9:10 am PDT.  So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking orange juice and/or coffee. The Padres (46-59) were shutout by the Atlanta Braves (57-48) 2-0 at Turner Field yesterday.  Jason Lane (0-1, 0.87) was tagged with the loss despite only giving...

Jason Lane made his starting debut today. He lost, but pitched pretty darn well

Jason Lane spent seven seasons as a hitter. Not a terrible one, either. He posted an .815 OPS, hit 26 homers, and had 78 RBI in 145 games for a pennant winner in 2005. But after that he crashed hard and was done as a big league bat. He reinvented himself as a pitcher in the Padres organization and was called up in June. Today he got his first start at age 37. And it wasn’t half...

Former Outfielder Jason Lane Makes MLB Pitching Debut At 37 Years Old

Former outfielder Jason Lane is back in Major League Baseball — but this time as a pitcher. After making two relief appearances for the San Diego Padres in June, Lane got his first major-league start Monday afternoon against the Atlanta Braves. Lane, who was called up to fill-in for the injured Ian Kennedy earlier in the day, became the ninth oldest pitcher in MLB history to make...

Former Outfielder Jason Lane to Make Starting Pitching Debut on Monday

If the name Jason Lane rings a bell, that’s because it probably should. The former Houston Astros outfielder will make his first MLB start as a pitcher for the San Diego Padres on Monday. Lane will take the bump against the Miami Marlins more than 10 years removed from hitting a solo home run against the Atlanta Braves in the 2004 NL Division Series.  After getting off to a...

Where have you gone, Jason Lane?

Silver linings being increasingly difficult to come by amid shutouts, strikeouts and more shutouts in a Padres season getting away, we come today with one plaintive question. Where have you gone, Jason Lane? Oh, baby, do we ever turn our lonely eyes to you. Wooo-wooo-wooo. "Wasn't that great?" Padres manager Bud Black said after Lane's debut on the mound last week...

Padres: Jason Lane sent outright to Triple-A El Paso

Jason Lane wills stay in the San Diego Padres organization accepting an assignment to Triple-A El Paso. Lane, 37, will stick around as bullpen depth for the Padres. He was designated for assignment a few days ago to make room for Andrew Cashner on the Padres active roster. In two appearances spanning 4 1/3 innings Lane struck out four batters while allowing just one hit. The former...

Jason Lane’s unprecedented return to big leagues as a pitcher

I was disappointed to see San Diego Padres LHP Jason Lane designated for assignment. The converted OF threw 4 1/3 scoreless innings over 2 outings, giving up just 1 hit in the process. The move was expected, as the Padres were just using Lane to help out with a depleted bullpen. Lane’s career has been […]

Now to do some jumping around major league spring training camps with some of the diamonds in the rough.
