Yangervis Solarte went 2-for-5 with his first home run as a member of the Padres in Sunday's loss to the Braves.

Solarte has enjoyed a revitalization since being dealt to the Padres, going 7-for-21 (.333) with Sunday's homer, five RBI and five runs scored. The infielder is hitting .260/.341/.396 overall. He'll continue to get everyday playing time for the next two months and is a decent option in NL-only leagues.

Eric Stults allowed six runs on six hits over six innings in Sunday's loss to the Braves.

Stults hit rough waters in the third inning when the Braves collected all six hits and plated six runs. Otherwise, Stults was fairly good, allowing only one baserunner over the other five innings. However it happened, the southpaw fell to 3-13 with the loss. Perhaps he'll fare better the second time around, as Stults will draw the Braves again in his next start on Friday.

Jedd Gyorko (plantar fasciitis) will be activated from the disabled list on Monday.

He has completed a minor league rehab stint with Triple-A El Paso and deemed ready to return. Before hitting the shelf in early June, he had hit just .162/.213/.270 with five homers and 24 RBI in his first 56 games.

Padres optioned Brooks Conrad to Triple-A El Paso.

With Jedd Gyorko returning from the disabled list on Monday, Conrad became expendable. He'll continue to serve as organizational infield depth in the minor leagues.

Padres placed OF Carlos Quentin on the 15-day disabled list with soreness in his left knee.

Injuries have been the underlying theme throughout Quentin's career, and his tenure in San Diego has been no different. He has appeared in just 50 games this season, slashing .177/.284/.315 with four homers and 18 RBI.

Jason Lane will be called up to start on Monday against the Braves.

It's expected to just be a spot start, as the anticipation is that Ian Kennedy (oblique) will only miss one turn. A former outfielder, Lane struck out four in 4 1/3 scoreless relief innings with the Padres earlier this season. He can be ignored in fantasy leagues.
Jul 27 - 3:14 PM

Ian Kennedy will not make his scheduled start on Monday versus the Braves due to left oblique soreness.

Kennedy is not expected to require a disabled list stint, but he'll have one turn skipped. It's poor timing, of course, given that the Padres are considering trading the right-hander before the deadline. Jason Lane will start in Kennedy's place.
Jul 27 - 2:55 PM

Carlos Quentin (knee) is not in the Padres' lineup Sunday.

He was originally back in there after missing a start with a sore knee but wound up being a late scratch. Quentin was able to pinch-hit Saturday and presumably will again be available off the bench.
Jul 27 - 2:29 PM

Padres right-handed pitching prospect Rafael DePaula pitched well in his debut for the Padres organization, allowing one hit, two walks, and one run over six innings, striking out three for High-A Lake Elsinore on Saturday.

DePaula allowed a third inning home run, but otherwise pitched very well. Poor command and lingering injuries have held back his development, but he has the potential to be a frontline starter. If his command and change-up do not improve, he has the potential to be another hard-throwing bullpen arm in the Padres bullpen.
Jul 27 - 12:06 PM

Carlos Quentin struck out as a pinch-hitter in Saturday's loss to the Braves.

Quentin exited Friday's contest with a sore knee. While pinch-hitting the next day suggests a stint on the disabled list will likely be avoided, it's not clear when he'll be ready to start again. Quentin is batting just .177/.284/.315 for the Padres this season.
Jul 27 - 4:12 AM

Andrew Cashner (shoulder) will throw a bullpen session on Sunday.

Cashner has been out since June 23 because of a right shoulder injury. Although he now seems to progressing in the right direction, he'll most likely miss the majority of August. Sunday's bullpen session will be his first since he landed on the disabled list.
Jul 26 - 11:35 PM

Odrisamer Despaigne surrendered five runs -- two earned -- over 3 2/3 innings Saturday in a loss to the Braves.

It was an ugly nosedive back to earth for the Cuban right-hander, who carried a no-hitter into the eighth inning last Sunday versus the Mets. He walked five Atlanta hitters on Saturday and gave up six hits. Despaigne does not have great raw stuff and is not a safe fantasy bet going forward despite his still-sparkling 1.66 ERA.
Jul 26 - 10:45 PM

Padres activated 1B Yonder Alonso from the 15-day disabled list.

Alonso had been on the shelf since the middle of June with tendinitis in his right wrist. Hand and wrist injuries have been known to sap hitters of their home run power, so don't expect Alonso to leave the yard much now that he's back with the Padres.
Jul 26 - 2:36 PM

Padres optioned OF Jake Goebbert to Triple-A El Paso.

The 26-year-old appeared in 22 games during his time with the Padres, slashing .250/.333/.354 with a homer, three RBI and a 16/5 K/BB ratio in 54 at-bats. He'll continue to provide organizational depth in the outfield.
Jul 26 - 2:34 PM

Jesse Hahn fired six innings of one-run ball in a 5-2 win over the Braves on Friday.

Hahn was solid in his return to the majors, allowing just three hits and three walks while striking out four batters. The only run scored on a sacrifice fly from Justin Upton his final inning of work. The 24-year-old now owns a 2.12 ERA and 51/19 K/BB ratio in 46 2/3 innings over eight starts this season. The Padres don't figure to score many runs for him (even after the past two nights), but he should be relevant in mixed leagues as long as he's in the rotation.
