Padres recalled OF Jabari Blash from Triple-A El Paso.

Blash is taking Travis Jankowski's (foot) spot on the roster and should take his spot as the regular left fielder, too. He's managed just a .152/.287/.291 batting line in 94 plate appearances in the majors so far but does have big raw power.

Padres optioned outfielder Jabari Blash to Triple-A Reno.

The Padres should be able to carve out a role for Blash against lefties, but carrying two Rule 5 players on their bench really limits their platoon options. Blash was 0-for-8 in his week with the club.
Apr 14 - 3:49 PM

Padres purchased the contract of OF Jabari Blash from Triple-A El Paso.

Blash slugged seven homers this spring, but the Padres decided against adding him to the 40-man roster. He's on it now and should see some starts versus left-handers.
Apr 7 - 3:34 PM

Padres reassigned OF Jabari Blash to minor league camp.

Blash, who was in major league camp as a non-roster invitee, did everything in his power to make the Opening Day roster by hitting .241/.348/.638 with seven homers and 19 RBI in 58 at-bats. He also whiffed 26 times though and has historically struggled to make consistent contact. He'll open the season at Triple-A El Paso.
Apr 1 - 2:20 PM

Jabari Blash socked his seventh homer of the spring in Monday’s 12-2 victory over the Mariners.

Wil Myers, Ryan Schimpf, and Luis Sardinas also went deep for San Diego. Only Bryce Harper (eight) has hit more home runs than Blash this spring. Greg Bird of the Yankees and Peter O’Brien, who was sent down by the Royals on Monday, have also hit seven. With Alex Dickerson (back) sidelined, Blash should see at least part-time at-bats in left field to begin the season.
Mar 27 - 8:56 PM

Jabari Blash finished 3-for-4 with a home run, a double, and four RBI in the Padres' 9-4 win over a Cubs split-squad on Sunday.

Blash singled and scored in the first inning, led off the third inning with a ground-rule double, and then slugged a grand slam in the top of the fourth off Cubs prospect Jonathan Martinez. Blash boasts a 1.056 OPS with six home runs and 17 RBI in 23 games this spring. He's played his way into a share of the left field job in San Diego.
Mar 26 - 7:22 PM

Jabari Blash drilled a three-run homer in a 9-6 victory over the Diamondbacks on Thursday.

He also singled in the game. He is batting .556/.615/2.171 with three homers and 10 RBI in just nine at-bats so far in the Cactus League. He fell flat on his face in his first major league opportunity last year, hitting just .169/.298/.324 with three home runs in 38 games. The 27-year-old has hit well in the minors and is making his case to be given another chance with the big league club.
Mar 2 - 11:17 PM

Jabari Blash racked up five RBI as the Padres beat the Giants 9-5 in Cactus League play on Tuesday in Arizona.

Blash plated Jose Pirela on a sacrifice fly in the bottom of the second inning, slugged a three-run shot in the fourth, and added an RBI single in the sixth. He was pushed off the Padres' 40-man roster in January, but the 27-year-old outfielder will probably make his way back on at some point this season.
Feb 28 - 6:53 PM

Padres sent OF Jabari Blash outright to Triple-A El Paso.

Blash cleared waivers after being designated for assignment last week, so he'll remain with the organization. The 27-year-old batted just .169/.298/.324 with three homers and 34 strikeouts in 84 plate appearances with the Padres in 2016.
Jan 25 - 2:04 PM

Padres designated OF Jabari Blash for assignment.

The 27-year-old hit just .169/.298/.324 with three homers, five RBI and a 34/11 K/BB ratio in 84 plate appearances with the Padres in 2016. There's a chance that he could pass through waivers unclaimed and continue to function as minor league depth for the Friars.
Jan 20 - 6:52 PM

Jabari Blash hasn't had any issues while playing in the Dominican Winter League with the strained left middle finger that ended his season.

Blash is hitting just .115 so far in 26 at-bats for Escogido, but at least he's healthy. The former Rule 5 pick flashed his big raw power with the Padres last season but looked overmatched more often than not. He'll have to fight to win an Opening Day roster spot.

Jabari Blash (finger) has been shut down for the rest of the 2016 season.

Blash has been sidelined by a sprained left middle finger since mid-August. He will rest his injured digit for the next 4-6 weeks. The Padres hope he will be able to play at some point during winter ball. In 71 at-bats with the major league team this season, the 27-year-old outfielder hit just .169/.298/.324 with three homers and five RBI.

Jabari Blash (finger) is rehabbing in the instructional league.

Blash has been out for almost a month with a sprained left middle finger, but he's ready to return to game action. He could rejoin the Padres later this week.
Mon, Sep 19, 2016 07:57:00 PM

Padres placed OF Jabari Blash on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 19, with a sprained left middle finger.

Blash hasn't played since last Thursday and will now get some extended rest. The Padres have called up the recently-acquired Luis Sardinas to take his place on the roster.
