Hunter Renfroe went off in Tuesday's 7-1 win over the Dodgers, launching a three-run home run and a grand slam to finish with seven RBI.

Renfroe spaced out his damage. He swatted a three-run home run off Kenta Maeda in the first inning, then went silent until the eighth. At which point, all the noise in the world. The 24-year-old outfielder connected to clear the bases for the grand slam against Louis Coleman, boosting the Padres to a 7-1 advantage in the process. For those disinclined to do the math, Renfroe accounted for all seven of the Padres' runs in the game with his pair of home runs. Those were his second and third career major league homers. All of this damage has come in Renfroe's first 17 big league at-bats. Not too shabby.

Paul Clemens pitched well in Tuesday's win over the Dodgers, surrendering one run on three hits over five innings.

Chase Utley burned Clemens for a solo home run in the third inning, but he kept the scoreboard clean otherwise. This was the 28-year-old right-hander's final start of the 2016 season. He finishes out holding a 4.27 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 46/29 K/BB ratio over 65 1/3 innings (16 appearances, 12 starts).

Tyson Ross could need surgery to repair his injured right shoulder.

Ross was limited to just one start in 2016 -- back on April 4 -- due to ongoing shoulder discomfort. He's undergone multiple tests and received several different medical opinions, but nothing has worked. This has become a nightmare for the 29-year-old right-hander, who is eligible for salary arbitration for the final time leading into 2017. He had a 3.07 ERA and 526 strikeouts in 516 2/3 innings between 2013-2015.

Adam Rosales went 1-for-3 with a homer and a walk as the Padres came from behind to beat the Giants 4-3 on Sunday afternoon in San Diego.

Rosales tagged Giants starter Ty Blach for a solo shot in the third inning, pulling the Padres to within a run at 3-2. The lefty-mashing utility man has been on a tear as of late and is now slashing .232/.322/.502 with 13 long balls and 35 RBI on the season.
Sep 25 - 8:51 PM

Clayton Richard pitched well in a no-decision against the Giants on Sunday, allowing three runs (two earned) on five hits over six frames.

Richard also issued three walks and struck out only one on the afternoon. All of the damage against him came during a three-run rally in the third inning, highlighted by a two-run single from Buster Posey. Inexplicably, Richard has pitched very well since rejoining the Padres, posting a 2.01 ERA over 49 1/3 innings. He'll take on the Diamondbacks in Arizona on the final day of the regular season.
Sep 25 - 8:45 PM

Jarred Cosart has undergone an MRI and X-ray on his right elbow.

Cosart exited Saturday's start versus the Giants with what the Padres think is a bone spur in the righty's elbow. He's almost surely done for the season. Cosart holds an ugly 6.00 ERA over 13 starts this season.
Sep 25 - 3:18 PM

Hunter Renfroe went 2-for-4, scored twice and hit his first major league home run on Saturday versus the Giants.

He launched a solo homer off Madison Bumgarner in the fourth inning. He doubled and scored in the sixth. Renfroe hit 30 home runs at Triple-A this season. The 24-year-old former first round draft pick is getting his first cup of coffee in the majors this month. He will likely work his way into the Padres' starting lineup early next season.
Sep 25 - 1:11 AM

Jarred Cosart (elbow) left Saturday's game against the Giants with right elbow inflammation.

He didn't look right from the start, allowing three hits, two walks and three earned runs before exiting with two outs in the first inning. Only 13 of his 28 pitches went for strikes. With only a week left in the regular season, it's likely that Cosart has thrown his final pitch of 2016. The right-hander is winless in 13 starts with a 6.04 ERA.
Sep 24 - 10:34 PM

Yangervis Solarte has rejoined the Padres.

He hasn't played since his wife passed away from cancer last weekend. Solarte has had a strong season for the Padres, hitting .284 with a career-high 15 HR and 68 RBI. Ryan Schimpf handed third base during his absence.
Sep 24 - 6:34 PM

Wil Myers went 2-for-3 with a three-run homer and an intentional walk in the Padres' 7-2 win over the Giants on Friday.

The homer came in the first off Albert Suarez. Myers is up to 28 homers and 91 RBI in 567 at-bats. He combined for 27 homers and 117 RBI in 885 at-bats over his first three big-league seasons.
Sep 24 - 3:06 AM

Edwin Jackson beat the Giants on Friday after allowing two runs in six innings.

The Giants struggled to get to Jackson even though he walked five batters. It was a carbon copy of Jackson's first start for the Padres on July 17, when he allowed two earned runs in 6 1/3 innings in defeating the Giants. He walked five in that one, too. Jackson is 5-5 with a 5.75 ERA in 12 starts for the Padres.
Sep 24 - 3:03 AM

Collecting his first major league hits, Carlos Asuaje doubled twice and scored twice Friday against the Giants.

Asuaje was making his second start at second base since joining the Padres four days ago. The late callup will give him little chance to throw his hat in the ring for a place on next year's team, but he's a fringy prospect anyway.
Sep 24 - 2:57 AM

Yangervis Solarte (personal) would like to return this season, but Padres manager Andy Green said the infielder's situation remains "fluid."

Solarte's wife, Yuliett, died this past Saturday from complications related to cancer. She was only 31. Obviously the Padres will give Solarte all the time he needs.
Sep 23 - 10:04 AM

Colin Rea (elbow) has resumed a throwing program.

Rea, who has a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament, received a platelet-rich plasma injection last month and could return to game action as soon as the Arizona Fall League if all goes well. If he's not on the right track by December 1, he could undergo Tommy John surgery. That would obviously knock him out until 2018.
Sep 23 - 10:02 AM

Alex Dickerson went 1-for-1 with a solo home run in Thursday's loss to the Giants.

Dickerson came off the bench to swat a solo home in the eighth inning. It drew the Padres to within 2-1, but neither team would score again after that home run. For the season as a whole, the 26-year-old Dickerson holds a .258/.327/.466 triple-slash to pair with his 10 homers and 35 RBI over 236 at-bats.
