Hunter Renfroe hit a homer for the Padres in a loss to the Giants on Sunday.

That give Renfroe 26 homers on the year, and the sixth in the month of September. The power is obvious, but Renfroe had a disappointing 2017 campaign, hitting just .231 with a .284 on-base percentage. If the approach can improve, he has a chance to be a middle-of-the-order hitter. If it doesn't, he'll be a homer-dependent player. Those are hard to trust, unless they're putting up Giancarlo Stanton-like numbers.

Luis Perdomo got a no-decision on Sunday, pitching seven innings and allowing four runs in a loss to the Giants.

Perdomo gave up seven hits and four runs, and he walked one while striking out four. A 24-year-old who is only two years removed from being a Rule 5 draft pick, Perdomo has made steady improvement, but still looks like a fourth or fifth starter, at best. He should make some improvement in 2018, but he's very hard to trust.

Brad Hand turned in a spotless ninth inning to earn a save against the Giants on Saturday.

After getting the first two batters out with weak contact, Hand struck out Joe Panik looking to end the ballgame. He's been lights-out all year and now owns a 2.16 ERA with 21 saves and 104 strikeouts in 79 1/3 innings.

Austin Hedges smacked a clutch ninth-inning double to give the Padres a come-from-behind 3-2 win over the Giants on Saturday.

The Padres trailed 2-1 and were down to their last out when Hedges punched a line drive to right field to drive in the tying and go-ahead runs. The young catcher reached the majors on the back of his stellar defense but was the hero with the bat today. He has a .214 batting average with 18 home runs and 55 RBI in 120 games.

Wil Myers went 2-for-4 and slugged a solo home run in a win over the Giants on Saturday.

His bomb off reliever Reyes Moronta stood as the only Padres tally until they pulled off a game-winning rally in the ninth inning. The longball was his 30th of the season to set a new career high. His .243 batting average and 74 RBI won't please his fantasy owners but his 20 stolen bases will.
Sep 30 - 7:52 PM

Jhoulys Chacin held the Giants to one run through six innings but did not factor into the decision on Saturday.

He surrendered a run in the first inning and then hung zeroes the rest of the way. He allowed five hits -- all singles -- and two walks while notching six strikeouts. This was a rare good start on the road for Chacin, who had a 6.93 away ERA compared to a 1.79 home ERA for the season prior to today's game. He ends the 2017 campaign with a 13-10 record and 3.89 ERA in 32 starts.
Sep 30 - 7:47 PM

Jordan Lyles surrendered seven runs and 10 hits in 3 2/3 innings Friday in a loss to the Giants.

Lyles, a reliever for the Rockies in the first half of the year, ended up 1-3 with a 9.39 ERA in five starts for the Padres. He'll be dropped from the roster as soon as the season is over, and he should have to settle for a minor league contract this winter.

Clayton Richard was tagged for eight runs -- six earned -- in five innings by the Dodgers on Wednesday.

The money is pretty much irrelevant, but we still don't see why the Padres felt the need to commit to Richard for two more years in signing him to an extension last week. He finishes 2017 -- his first full year in a rotation since 2012 -- 8-15 with a 4.79 ERA. He's a decent enough fallback, but it's a problem if the Padres don't have five better options for their rotation next April.
Sep 28 - 1:14 AM

Corey Spangenberg is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Dodgers.

Rich Hill is starting, so the Padres are loading up with right-handed hitters. Travis Jankowski is also out of the starting lineup for San Diego, with Christian Villanueva and Jabari Blash playing instead.
Sep 27 - 7:39 PM

Christian Villanueva finished 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's loss on the road against the Dodgers.

Villanueva is making the most of his opportunity since being called up from Triple-A El Paso, going 9-for-23 (.391) with four homers and a 1.304 OPS across 23 at-bats over nine outings. He is certainly making his way into the fantasy sleeper conversation for 2018.
Sep 27 - 3:41 AM

Dinelson Lamet allowed four earned runs, four hits and six walks with seven strikeouts over five innings in a loss on the road against the Dodgers on Tuesday.

Lamet threw just 53 of his 98 pitches for strikes, as he was all over the strike zone. He is not expected to make another start this season, although he might be available in long relief in the final weekend. If he doesn't make another appearance he would wrap up his rookie season with a 7-8 record, 4.57 ERA and respectable 1.24 WHIP over 21 starts across 114 1/3 innings.
Sep 27 - 3:39 AM

Travis Wood was tagged for six runs in 4 2/3 innings by the Dodgers on Monday.

It was Wood's final scheduled start for the year. He concludes it 3-4 with a 6.71 ERA in 11 starts for the Padres. Before that, he had a 6.91 ERA in three starts and 25 relief appearances for the Royals. He's signed at $6.5 million for next year, so he'll almost certainly be back with the Padres to compete for a rotation spot in the spring.
Sep 26 - 2:35 AM

Carter Capps will undergo thoracic outlet syndrome surgery this offseason.

Capps' velocity was down and he held a 6.57 ERA over 12 1/3 innings for the Padres after he finally made it back from Tommy John surgery, and now he's facing another long rehab. The Padres are hopeful that the reliever will be ready for spring training.
Sep 25 - 8:24 PM

Wil Myers launched his 29th home run of the year in a losing effort against the Rockies on Sunday afternoon.

Myers got the Padres on the board and tied the score at 1-1 with his solo shot off of German Marquez in the first inning, which was immediately followed by a solo blast from Yangervis Solarte. Myers finished the afternoon 2-for-4, raising his season slash to .245/.332/.467 to go along with 29 homers, 73 RBI and 20 stolen bases.
Sep 24 - 7:58 PM

Luis Perdomo was handed his 11th loss of the season on Sunday, surrendering four runs on six hits over five innings against the Rockies.

Perdomo walked two and struck out four on the day. The right-hander will bring a 4.65 ERA and 1.53 WHIP into his season finale against the Giants in San Francisco on Sunday. He can continue to be avoided for fantasy purposes.
