Padres recalled RHP Nick Vincent from Triple-A El Paso.

Vincent had previously worked 12 2/3 innings with the Padres, allowing five earned runs on 17 hits over that space. He should slot back into middle relief duty now that he's back with the team.

Padres activated RHP Marcos Mateo from the 15-day disabled list.

Mateo suffered a strained neck in early August. He pitched to an era of over 5.00 with the Padres earlier this season, while holding a 20/4 K/BB ratio across 17 1/3 innings.

Brett Wallace pinch-hit and delivered an RBI double in Monday's 7-0 victory against the Rangers.

The run didn't matter, as Wallace's RBI double made it a 7-0 game in the eighth inning, but it marked the fourth consecutive time Wallace has pinch-hit and gotten a hit. He's operated in almost purely a bench role for the Padres, but has compiled a terrific .347/.418/.612 triple-slash line with three home runs and 12 RBI. The Padres have control of Wallace for three more years, and his performance in the second half of this season could help his case for more playing time in the future.

Matt Kemp went 1-for-4 with a double, a walk, and a stolen base as the Padres shut out the Rangers on Monday.

Kemp drove in a run in the third inning with a double. In the sixth, he walked, stole second, and shortly thereafter came around to score. The outfielder is hitting .265/.312/.424 with 16 home runs, 81 RBI, and 11 stolen bases.

Tyson Ross pitched brilliantly in Monday's win, shutting the Rangers out over seven innings.

Ross allowed only six base runners on three hits, two walks, and a hit batsman. It's only the second time Ross has been able to complete the seventh inning in his last 13 starts. He still has solid numbers though, owning a 3.27 ERA with a 1.35 WHIP and a 176/74 K/BB ratio over 165 innings. Ross will face the Dodgers at home next.

Matt Kemp provided a two-run home run, finishing 1-for-5 as the Padres took down the Phillies on Sunday.

Kemp opened up the scoring with a two-run blast over the fence in left field against Alec Asher in the first inning. The veteran outfielder has hit well in the second half to salvage what has otherwise been a tough season. He's batting .265/.312/.424 with 16 home runs and 80 RBI on the year.
Aug 30 - 4:59 PM

Justin Upton went 1-for-5 with a solo home run as the Padres beat the Phillies on Sunday.

Upton pushed the Padres' lead to 3-1 with a solo home run off of rookie starter Alec Asher in the third inning. It's his fourth home run in his last five games, giving him 24 on the season along with 72 RBI and a .253/.337/.460 batting line.
Aug 30 - 4:58 PM

James Shields was effective in Sunday's win versus the Phillies, firing seven innings of one-run ball.

Shields allowed six hits and a walk while striking out eight. The only run came on a Cameron Rupp solo home run in the second inning. The right-hander picked up his 10th win with the effort, and now has a 3.78 ERA with a 1.31 WHIP and a 184/61 K/BB ratio in 171 1/3 innings. Shields will host the Dodgers in his next start.

Padres designated LHP Caleb Thielbar for assignment.

The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for Chris Rearick. Theilbar had just been claimed off waivers from the Twins three weeks ago.
Aug 30 - 2:57 PM

Padres claimed LHP Chris Rearick off waivers from the Rangers; optioned him to Double-A San Antonio.

Rearick went from the Padres to the Rangers on a waiver claim a little over a week ago and now is back with San Diego again. The Padres designated Caleb Thielbar for assignment to clear a spot on the 40-man roster.

Matt Kemp (shoulder) singled and scored a run in his return to the lineup Saturday.

Kemp missed two games with a sore left (non-throwing) shoulder, but he'll be fine. He also stole a base Saturday.
Aug 30 - 8:19 AM

Derek Norris went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in Saturday's loss to the Phillies.

Norris is now hit-less in his last seven at-bats, with four strikeouts in that space. While he's set a career high with 13 home runs this season, and will have a career-high RBI number by season's end (he drove in 55 a year ago and currently sits at 54), his overall batting line is just .243/.286/.407.
Aug 29 - 10:14 PM

Colin Rea's fourth major league start resulted in a loss to the Phillies on Saturday, as he allowed four runs on six hits over five innings.

The Phillies nicked Rea for two runs in the second and an additional two in the fourth. Over 19 2/3 innings, he's pitched to a tough 5.95 ERA and 1.47 WHIP. He has yet to last six innings in a start, but will try for that mark once more when he tangles with the Dodgers in a home outing next time out.
Aug 29 - 10:08 PM

Wil Myers (wrist) will begin a rehab assignment on Tuesday.

He's likely headed to High-A Lake Elsinore. Wrist issues have limited Myers to 35 games this year. He could see time at both center field and first base when he returns, which should be sometime after the minor league season ends on September 7. The 24-year-old hasn't played in the big leagues since June 13.
Aug 29 - 6:14 PM

Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports the Mets have claimed LHP Marc Rzepczynski on waivers.

It's unclear how long the Mets have to complete a deal. Rzepczynski has bounced around this season, making 45 appearances for the Indians and another 15 for San Diego. The lefty specialist would be an upgrade over recent pickup Eric O'Flaherty (7.90 ERA).
