Wil Myers went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Tigers.

Myers smashed a solo home run off Jordan Zimmermann in the second inning, his 15th homer of the season. He is up to 39 RBI for the campaign and owns a .261/.332/.482 triple-slash overall. That batting line matches pretty well with the .259/.336/.461 line he posted during his breakout 2016 season.

Erick Aybar went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Tigers.

Aybar hit homer No. 6 on the season when he led off the second inning with a solo blast against Jordan Zimmermann. He is now over halfway home to matching the career-high 10 dingers he bopped in 2011, when he was with the Angels. Despite this bit of pop, the veteran infielder is hitting just .222/.293/.356 in 65 games overall.

Clayton Richard surrendered five runs on nine hits over 5 2/3 innings while taking a no-decision in Sunday's loss to the Tigers.

Richard surrendered a pair of leads in this one, blowing a 3-0 advantage when he allowed three runs in the fourth inning and coughing up a 5-3 lead when he yielded a game-tying two-run homer to Nick Castellanos in the sixth inning. He struck out three and walked two in the lackluster outing. Richard will bring a 4.42 ERA and 1.44 WHIP into a home start against the smoking-hot Dodgers next time he toes the rubber.

Allen Cordoba (hand) will be available off the Padres' bench Sunday.

They'd like to stay away from him, though, as Cordoba still has swelling after exiting Saturday's game against the Tigers with a left hand contusion. The Padres have an off day Monday.
Jun 25 - 3:24 PM

Carlos Asuaje finished with a single and a double across three at-bats with a run scored Saturday against the Tigers.

Asuaje collected his first two hits of the season. He has a discerning eye at the plate, but won't hit for very much power at all. Asuaje should see occasional starts while Yangervis Solarte (oblique) is on the shelf.
Jun 25 - 3:44 AM

Cory Spangenberg finished 2-for-4 with a pair of RBI in Saturday's win against the Tigers.

Spangenberg is enjoying his most productive stretch of the season, hitting .339 (20-for-59) with two doubles, three home runs and six RBI in June. He has raised his average from .234 to .271 since June 1.

Dinelson Lamet allowed three runs - two earned - and three hits with a walk and five strikeouts over six innings in a no-decision against the Tigers on Saturday.

The rookie hasn't won since May 30, a span of four outings, but he has a pair of quality starts his past two times out. As long as he can limit his walks like he has the past three games, and keep the ball in the yard, the rookie can be very productive with his live arm. He'll look to keep it rolling Thursday when the Braves pay a visit to Petco Park.
Jun 25 - 3:34 AM

Allen Cordoba left Saturday's game against the Tigers with a left hand contusion.

He exited after taking a pitch off his left hand in the third inning. Chase d'Arnaud pinch-ran for Cordoba and replaced him at shortstop. Until we hear otherwise, consider Cordoba day-to-day.
Jun 24 - 11:45 PM

Luis Perdomo blanked the Tigers for six innings Friday to win for the second time this season.

Perdomo walked a season-high five, but he gave up just two hits, both of them singles. He's turned in three straight quality starts to lower his ERA from 5.30 to 4.56. There's no mixed-league value here, but he's been solid overall and definitely better than the 2-4 record in 13 starts suggests (he's amassed eight quality starts).
Jun 24 - 1:07 AM

Brandon Maurer pitched a perfect ninth in a 1-0 game for his 14th save Friday against the Tigers.

Maurer is still sporting that ugly 6.14 ERA, but he is 9-for-9 in save chances over the last month.
Jun 24 - 1:05 AM

Cory Spangenberg singled, walked twice and stole his fourth base Friday against the Tigers.

Spangenberg scored the only run in a 1-0 game. He's performed better since the Padres committed to him and sent Ryan Schimpf down, but his .265/.297/.373 line still isn't very impressive. He has a 49/7 K/BB ratio in 177 plate appearances.
Jun 24 - 1:02 AM

Wil Myers was used at second base for one batter, ala Anthony Rizzo, in Friday's game against the Tigers.

Like Rizzo has been several times this season, Myers moved to second base in a bunt situation and then moved back to first afterwards. It counts as a position change, and it's the first time he's played second base in his career. He could get eventually get eligibility in five-game leagues if manager Andy Green likes how it worked out tonight.

Padres activated C Hector Sanchez from the 10-day disabled list.

He's been out since early May with a foot injury. The Padres now have three catchers on the roster again, although Austin Hedges (thigh) is banged up.
Jun 23 - 5:35 PM

Padres recalled INF/OF Carlos Asuaje from Triple-A El Paso.

Asuaje has hit .253/.373/.378 with three homers for El Paso this season. He could see some starts while Yangervis Solarte (oblique) is out.
Jun 23 - 5:31 PM

Padres placed RHP Miguel Diaz on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to June 22, with a right forearm strain.

Diaz suffered the injury Wednesday in his first major league start. It's unclear how long he'll be on the shelf.
