Padres star shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. has given fans multiple worrisome injury scares since the second half of March but is on track to return to action from a subluxation of his left shoulder for Friday's game against the Dodgers.
All eyes will be on Petco Park this weekend as the San Diego Padres and Los Angeles Dodgers go head-to-head for the first time this season. In Friday’s opener, young left-hander Ryan Weathers has a chance to make a huge statement, squaring off against Los Angeles’ Walker Buehler.
Consider the rust shaken off. Manny Machado drove in three runs, including a two-run homer in the first inning, to help the Padres get back on track Thursday afternoon with a big 8-3 win over the Pirates to split the four-game road series in Pittsburgh.
The offense has to start coming from somewhere else. In his first start since throwing the first no-hitter in franchise history, Joe Musgrove struckout six batters, but allowed an early home run that helped sink the Padres 5-1 on Wednesday night in Pittsburgh.
Guys, I have some news. Knee inflammation isn’t a season-ending injury. It’s obviously not ideal, but it’s far from the end of the world. So if you’re a Padres fan worrying over Wil Myers, who’s gotten off to an insane start this year, don’t be.
Let’s just sweep this one under the rug, yeah? After his first two stellar starts of the 2021 season, Blake Snell failed to make it out of the first inning as he was pulled following a disastrous outing where he let up three runs, walked two, and hit another batter all with two outs in the inning.
Become the first San Diego Padres pitcher to throw a no-hitter, get your own mural. Joe Musgrove, who made history last Friday against the Texas Rangers, was surprised this week by his family and local artists who adorned a wall of his former high school, Grossmont High School with a mural commemorating his accomplishment.
So I have good news and bad news for you. First, the good. There’s a report floating around out there that Padres superstar Fernando Tatis Jr. will make his return to the diamond this week – more specifically, on Friday against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Got a complete game out of the Friars on Monday. The Padres (8-3) kicked off their four-game road series with a big 6-2 victory over the Pirates (3-7) on Monday afternoon that included a career-high tying five runs driven in by Wil Myers and seven innings of lockdown pitching by Yu Darvish.
That’s how you stay hot on a road trip. On the heels of a three-game sweep of the Texas Rangers in Arlington, headlined by Joe Musgrove tossing the first no-hitter in San Diego Padres history, the Friars just kept rolling on Monday, dominating the Pirates behind right-hander Yu Darvish.
In years past, words like ‘overbloated’ and ‘obscene’ were thrown around pretty casually attached to Wil Myers’ six-year, $83 million contract. But now, everybody is talking about the slugging Padres outfielder in very different terms.
We’ll take that. Short and sweet. Following up the Padres’ first no-hitter in franchise history was alway going to be a tough ask. They could have immediately lost the next game, or even went on to lose the series but dropping the next two contests.
Adrián Morejón left his start against in the first inning due to a forearm/elbow strain in his throwing arm. That’s an ominous-sounding diagnosis, as forearm strains are often a precursor to Tommy John surgery
