Jabari Blash swatted his fifth home run of the season as the Padres topped the Giants on Tuesday night in San Diego.

His solo shot off of Matt Moore tied the game at 2-2 in the fourth inning. Blash finished the night 1-for-4 and is slashing .216/.341/.402 with five homers and 14 RBI in his 123 plate appearances with the Padres this year.

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

He's taking the spot of slumping outfielder Hunter Renfroe, who was sent back to Triple-A. Blash has hit an underwhelming .224 with three homers in 76 at-bats over three big league stints this season. The 28-year-old is well off the fantasy radar.

Padres optioned OF Jabari Blash to Triple-A El Paso.

Blash got off to a nice start in his most recent stint with the big club, he be ultimately faded. He's a .197/.328/.361 hitter at the major league level.

Jabari Blash went 1-for-3 with a two-run double in Sunday's win over the Giants.

Blash burned Ty Blach for a two-run double in the fourth inning. The two-bagger was his fourth of the season. He has played well since being recalled from Triple-A on July 14 and has done enough to continue drawing regular at-bats moving forward. Over the course of 24 games played this season, the 28-year-old outfielder is slashing .242/.377/.452 with three homers and 11 RBI.

Padres manager Andy Green on Thursday indicated that Jabari Blash has earned a right to remain in the lineup.

Blash is hitting .458/.517/.833 with two homers over seven games since his recall. "The Jabari I’m seeing right now is earning his right to be on the baseball field consistently," Green said. "I don’t mind watching guys compete for playing time. I’m actually excited by that prospect. With all the injuries we’ve had this year, that concept hasn’t really been able to be embraced at all." Blash has had a nice season at Triple-A El Paso with a .291/.407/.631 line and 18 homers. He's going to strike out a ton, but there might be enough power here for NL-only value. Jose Pirela and Carlos Asuaje figure to see their playing time cut the most as long as Blash is in there, and it's possible Hunter Renfroe could also see fewer starts.

Jabari Blash finished 3-for-3 with a walk, a run scored and an RBI in Tuesday's road loss against the Rockies.

It wasn't all good for Blash, as he made his second error of the season on a line drive. The outfielder from the U.S. Virgin Islands has come alive in July, posting nine hits over 18 at-bats (.500) with two doubles, two homers and seven RBI while coming across to score five times.
Jul 19 - 12:59 AM

Jabari Blash finished 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Saturday's game against the Giants.

Blash too Madison Bumgarner deep in the fourth inning for only his second homer of the season. The young outfielder has back-to-back games with extra-base hits while posting three RBI since his recall from Triple-A El Paso. The power potential is there for Blash, but he needs to develop a better eye at the plate if he intends to stick around for a while.
Jul 16 - 2:35 AM

Jabari Blash, called up earlier in the day, went 2-for-4 with a double and a walk against the Giants on Friday.

He also had a nice at-bat with two outs and the go-ahead run on in the bottom of the ninth, but his opposite-field drive to right couldn't quite make it to the wall in Petco. It should still be enough to keep him in the lineup Saturday as Hunter Renfroe's replacement in right.
Jul 15 - 1:42 AM

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

Blash has hit just .103/.316/.207 during his brief time in the majors. He could get a few starts while Hunter Renfroe (neck) is sidelined.
Jul 14 - 4:52 PM

Padres optioned OF Jabari Blash to Triple-A El Paso.

The move clears a spot for the newly-acquired Matt Szczur on the active roster. Blash, 27, hit just .103 with 15 strikeouts in 38 plate appearances during his stay with the big club.
May 9 - 1:29 PM

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.
Apr 24 - 6:57 PM

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.
