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.
Sep 19 - 7:57 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.

Jabari Blash slugged a solo homer in Friday’s win over the Mets.

Ryan Schimpf slugged a grand slam in the first inning before Blash immediately followed him with a home run of his own. The Padres slugged four homers in the first three innings to grab an 8-2 lead. The Mets chipped away from there, but the Padres managed to hang on to win the ballgame. Blash has shown some pop and patience since returning from the minors at the end of July, but regular at-bats aren’t assured down the stretch with Manny Margot and Hunter Renfroe likely to make their way to the majors soon.

Jabari Blash had an RBI single and solo homer in Tuesday's loss to the Pirates.

Blash made it 2-0 with an RBI single in the first inning and closed out the scoring with a blast off of closer Tony Watson to lead off the ninth. It's his second homer in eight games since being recalled. Blash is hitting only .204 over 31 contests this season but does have a .350 on-base percentage.
Aug 9 - 11:51 PM

Jabari Blash went 2-for-3 with an RBI single in Tuesday's loss to the Brewers.

Blash was the only Padres batter to finish with multiple hits. Both of them went for singles -- as was the case for all six hits by the team. His RBI base knock in the sixth inning drew the Padres to within 3-2, but neither team would score again in the contest. Blash was called up on Sunday in the wake of Matt Kemp's trade to the Braves. He was playing well down at Triple-A El Paso, but has yet to show enough of a major league spark to make him worth a fantasy flier.
Aug 3 - 2:01 AM

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

He's taking the roster spot of Matt Kemp, who has been traded to the Braves. Blash hit only .120/.241/.160 while striking out 13 times in 25 at-bats before the Padres designated him for assignment back in May. However, they kept him around via trade and he's back up after batting .260/.415/.514 with 11 homers for El Paso. Blash is in right field and hitting fifth Sunday.
Jul 31 - 12:57 PM

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.
