Padres acquired OF Jabari Blash from the Mariners for a player to be named later.
Blash was designated for assignment by the Friars on May 13 and they had to give up something (probably a low-level minor leaguer) to keep him in the system. The 26-year-old outfielder was a Rule 5 Draft pick from Seattle (via Oakland) back in December. He will report to the Padres' Triple-A affiliate in El Paso. May 18 - 4:05 PM

Padres designated OF Jabari Blash for assignment.

The Rule 5 pick hit just .120/.241/.160 while striking out 13 times in 25 at-bats. Other teams will have an opportunity to claim him off waivers before the Padres offer him back to the Mariners.
May 13 - 4:19 PM

Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune hears from a source that there's a "high expectation" that Jabari Blash will make the Opening Day roster.

Blash is batting just .210 (10-for-47) with 20 strikeouts this spring, but he also has four home runs, 10 doubles, and one triple this spring. The 26-year-old is a Rule 5 pick, so the Padres don't want to lose him.
Mar 30 - 2:14 PM

Jabari Blash exited Tuesday's game with a hamstring cramp.

The Padres are saying they pulled him as a precaution. Blash, a Rule 5 pick, has hit .213 with two home runs this spring and has a shot to make the Opening Day roster.
Mar 29 - 7:54 PM

Jabari Blash finished 2-for-4 with four RBI in the Padres' 21-6 spring rout of the Astros on Sunday.

Blash got the big day off offense going for the Friars with a three-run shot in the bottom of the first inning and then added an RBI single and another personal run scored in the bottom of the seventh. The young Rule 5 Draft pick has a good shot at cracking the Padres' Opening Day roster, but this playing time might be pretty spotty in the early going.
Mar 27 - 7:05 PM

Padres manager Andy Green said Thursday that he's "not ruling out" Jabari Blash as the club's starter in left field.

Blash is batting just .182 this spring, but he's hit two homers and has a .400 on-base percentage thanks to his seven walks. While the Rule 5 pick has a good chance to make the Opening Day roster, it seems unlikely that he'll garner a ton of playing time, at least not right away. Blash's best shot for at-bats is against lefties.
Mar 17 - 8:04 PM

Jabari Blash belted a two-run homer in Monday's win over the Cubs.

Blash's jack came in the sixth inning off of Cubs' prospect Pierce Johnson. The Rule 5 pick drew a walk and struck out in his other two at-bats. Blash has been a three true outcome player this spring, either hitting a homer, drawing a walk or striking out in 21 of 28 plate appearances.
Mar 14 - 7:55 PM

Jabari Blash blasted a solo home run in Monday's Cactus League win over the Brewers.

The Rule 5 pick took Taylor Jungmann deep in the second inning. It was his only hit in five trips to the plate, although he did also draw a walk. Blash has holes in his swing, but he has big power and the Padres will give him every opportunity this spring to show he should be on the roster.
Mar 7 - 7:28 PM

Jabari Blash is the player to be named later in the Yonder Alonso trade.

Oakland plucked Blash away from Seattle's system with the sixth pick in Thursday's Rule 5 Draft and will now flip him over to San Diego. The 26-year-old corner outfielder tallied 32 home runs and 82 RBI in 116 games this summer between Double-A Jackson and Triple-A Tacoma -- affiliates of the Mariners.

Athletics selected OF Jabari Blash from the Mariners with the sixth pick in the Rule 5 Draft.

The expectation is that he will soon be flipped to the Padres as the player to be named later in the Yonder Alonso trade. Blash tallied 32 home runs and 82 RBI in 116 games this past season between Double-A Jackson and Triple-A Tacoma. It was his best minor league showing to date, but San Diego may as well give him a shot.

Mariners outfield prospect Jabari Blash went 1-for-2 with a home run, two walks, and a hit by pitch Sunday.

Blash has homered in three consecutive games, raising his Triple-A line to .236/.329/.542. Blash hit .247/.400/.483 with Double-A Jackson in April, .182/.282/.398 in May with Triple-A Tacoma, and has caught fire in June, hitting .353/.441/.843 with four doubles and seven home runs in 14 games.

Mariners outfield prospect Jabari Blash made his debut for Triple-A Tacoma on Wednesday.

Blash went 0-for-5 in his debut with a strikeout, but he could see some time in Seattle this season, particularly if the Mariners outfield does not start hitting. Blash is a corner outfielder with 20 home run potential and a strong arm, but he strikes out too much. His likely role is a 4th outfielder who has power.
