Andrew Cashner gave up just two runs over six innings but took the loss against the Brewers on Tuesday.

Cashner was actually fortunate to get out with just two runs allowed, as he yielded eight hits and walked four over his six innings of work. Cashner also struck out five in the outing. Even with the decent showing, the loss dropped Cashner to 4-11 with a 4.08 ERA and 1.35 WHIP. He's got a good shot at getting his fifth win Sunday against the Phillies.

Justin Upton (thumb) is absent from the Padres' lineup Tuesday.

Upton exited Monday's game with a bruised right thumb. The ailment doesn't seem to be serious, but he could require a few days of rest. Will Venable is in left field Tuesday, with Melvin Upton handling center.
Aug 4 - 6:57 PM

Padres activated RHP Ian Kennedy from the paternity leave list.

Kennedy welcomed a daughter on Friday and didn't wind up missing a start in the Padres' rotation. The 30-year-old righty owns a 4.44 ERA, 1.29 WHIP, and 94/30 K/BB ratio in 103 1/3 innings this season for the Padres.
Aug 4 - 5:35 PM

Padres optioned RHP Leonel Campos to Triple-A El Paso.

Campos gave the Padres a bit of bullpen depth while Ian Kennedy was away on paternity leave. The 28-year-old Campos owns a 5.63 ERA in eight career major league innings.
Aug 4 - 5:34 PM

Tyson Ross allowed three runs (two earned) in six innings, earning his eighth win as the Padres vanquished the Brewers 13-5 on Monday.

Ross worked around seven hits and two walks with five strikeouts. Only one of the hits went for extra bases. Though he hasn't been as dominant as he was in 2014, the right-hander has strong numbers through 23 starts, boasting a 3.37 ERA with a 1.39 WHIP and a 142/63 K/BB ratio over 133 2/3 innings. Ross matches up with the Phillies at home next.

Justin Upton left Monday's game against the Brewers with a bruised right thumb.

It had looked like Upton was pulled Monday simply to get him some rest with such a big lead, but apparently he's dealing with a big of a thumb issue. The Padres are calling him day-to-day for the time being, but he would figure to miss at least a game or two.
Aug 3 - 11:40 PM

Jedd Gyorko went 3-for-5 with an RBI single and a solo home run as the Padres defeated the Brewers on Monday.

Gyorko pushed the Padres' lead to 5-2 with an RBI single in the third inning, then whacked a solo home run off of Michael Blazek in the fifth to make it a 7-2 game. The mercurial infielder is batting .239/.301/.362 with six home runs and 23 RBI. His triple-slash line represents a modest improvement over last year's struggles.
Aug 3 - 11:34 PM

Yangervis Solarte hit two home runs, knocked in four runs, and drew a walk in five plate appearances in Monday's win over the Brewers.

Solarte put the Padres on the board early with a first-inning solo home run against Wily Peralta. He added a three-run home run to cap off a six-run seventh inning. The third baseman is on a nine-game hitting streak, the most recent four of which have included multiple hits. Solarte owns a productive .266/.319/.418 batting line with seven home runs and 40 RBI on the year.
Aug 3 - 11:30 PM

Alexi Amarista went 2-for-4 with a triple and a game-tying two-run home run in the ninth inning of Sunday's loss to the Marlins.

Amarista's triple is notable for the fact that it was the only extra-base hit allowed by Marlins starter Jose Fernandez. After Fernandez left the game, the Padres looked dead in the water until the ninth inning, when Amarista struck like lightning, belting a two-run homer off reliever A.J. Ramos with one out to tie the proceedings at two-all. The big offensive showing is all the more surprising for the fact that Amarista was dealing with an 0-for-24 skid prior to his triple. He's batting just .201/.267/.293 with three home runs and 23 RBI this season.
Aug 2 - 4:32 PM

James Shields pitched well in earning a no-decision against the Marlins on Sunday, yielding two runs on five hits over six innings.

Shields struck out four and walked two in the contest. Both runs against him scored in the first inning, when he allowed an RBI double to Miguel Rojas and a sacrifice fly to Derek Dietrich. The veteran right-hander boasts a 3.74 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 152/49 K/BB ratio in 139 2/3 innings. Up next on the schedule, a home outing against the Phillies.
Aug 2 - 4:27 PM

Brandon Morrow (shoulder) will receive a second opinion from Dr. Neal ElAttrache this week.

Morrow was scratched from his rehab start last Thursday due to more shoulder discomfort. A subsequent exam by Padres team physician Dr. Heinz Hoenecke on Friday resulted in a diagnosis of shoulder inflammation, which is what Morrow has been dealing with for three months. However, he wants to get another opinion to see if anything else is going on. The right-hander would seem to be a long shot to pitch for the Padres again this season.
Aug 2 - 1:19 PM

Cory Spangenberg (knee) will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A San Antonio on Monday.

It's unclear how many rehab games he'll need. Spangenberg has been out since late June with a bruised left knee.
Aug 2 - 11:22 AM

Craig Kimbrel notched his 31st save of the season with a scoreless ninth inning against the Marlins on Saturday.

Kimbrel took the mound with the Padres holding onto a 5-3 lead. He retired all three batters he faced and ended the game with a strikeout of J.T. Realmuto. At various times over the last week, the all-world closer was attached to multiple trade rumors. None of them came to fruition, though, and Kimbrel should close out the season in San Diego. He holds a 2.76 ERA and 58/15 K/BB ratio in 42 1/3 innings while going 31-for-33 in save chances.
Aug 1 - 10:05 PM

Odrisamer Despaigne supplied a quality start in Saturday's win over the Marlins, allowing three runs on five hits over six-plus innings.

Despaigne allowed two runs in the fifth inning on a pair of RBI singles, with an additional run scoring against him in the seventh to finish off his line. On the evening, he struck out five and walked one. While this start was fine, Despaigne's had his issues with consistency throughout the season and currently holds a 4.75 ERA and 1.21 WHIP. A road start against the Brewers is up next on the schedule as the Padres try to remain a relevant baseball team.
Aug 1 - 9:52 PM

Padres recalled RHP Leonel Campos from Triple-A El Paso.

He'll provide bullpen depth while Ian Kennedy is away on paternity leave. The 28-year-old owns a 2.92 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 68/21 K/BB ratio over 49 1/3 impressive innings at Triple-A this season.
