Padres OF prospect Franmil Reyes launched a pair of solo home runs Saturday in a win for High-A Lake Elsinore.

He also delivered a two-run double in the ninth inning to plate four of the Storm's 14 runs. The 20-year-old has gone ballistic over his last three contests, smashing seven hits in that span while raising his average from .233 to .247. Reyes has had an uneventful year for the most part, though he is tied for ninth in the California League with 42 RBI.

Wil Myers went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Sunday's loss to the Reds.

The Padres -- as a team -- managed just five singles in the shutout loss. With the 0-for-4 under his belt, Myers is hitting .283/.337/.522 with 17 homers, 50 RBI and 10 steals over 293 at-bats. The 10 steals are already the most he has recorded in a season.

Luis Perdomo turned in a quality start in Sunday's loss to the Reds, allowing three runs on seven hits over six innings.

Perdomo struck out five and walked three on the afternoon. The Reds nicked him for solitary runs in the second, fourth and sixth innings, but he at least managed to keep them from putting up a crooked number in any one frame. The 23-year-old right-hander will carry an unsightly 8.49 ERA and 2.06 WHIP into a home start against the Yankees next time he toes the rubber.

Padres RHP prospect Dinelson Lamet matched a career-high with nine strikeouts Saturday in a win for Double-A San Antonio.

Lamet limited Midland to one hit over six shutout innings, though he did allow a season-high five walks. Saturday was Lamet's first victory since his promotion from High-A Lake Elsinore earlier this month. The 23-year-old has emerged as one of the Padres' better prospects with eight wins and a 2.83 ERA over 16 outings this season. His 1.90 K/BB could stand to improve but other than that, Lamet seems to be trending in the right direction.

Jon Jay - OF - Padres

Jon Jay (wrist) remained out of the Padres' lineup Sunday.

Jay hasn't played since being hit on the right wrist with a pitch a week ago. Travis Jankowski is again in center field and the leadoff spot.
Jun 26 - 9:52 AM

Matt Kemp is not in the Padres' lineup Sunday.

It's a rare day off for the veteran outfielder. Alexi Amarista is getting a start in right field.

Padres manager Andy Green said he'll consider using a six-man starting rotation when Andrew Cashner returns from a neck injury.

Cashner is expected to join the rotation after making a rehab start for High-A Lake Elsinore on Tuesday. With only a couple weeks until the All-Star break, the Padres can roll with six starters and reset their rotation after the break. It might not be a bad idea to give San Diego's inexperienced starters some extra rest. Drew Pomeranz has never thrown more than 96 2/3 innings in a season while Christian Friedrich and Colin Rea haven't topped 100 frames since 2014.
Jun 25 - 9:21 PM

Drew Pomeranz threw seven scoreless innings, allowing just three hits, to lead the Padres to a 3-0 victory over the Reds on Saturday.

Pomeranz yielded a double and two singles on the afternoon, walking just one while striking out six. He also helped himself at the plate, hitting his first home run of the year and collecting two RBI. Pitching is what he's best at, though, and the 27-year-old is now 7-7 with a 2.76 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 102/39 K/BB ratio over 88 innings of work. He'll try to continue his breakout first half Saturday against the Yankees.

Derek Norris went 1-for-3 with a stolen base and a run scored in Saturday's win over the Reds.

Not known for his speed, Norris now has a stolen base in each of his past two games and three overall this year. He's been finding ways to contribute in recent days, homering three times with 10 RBI and eight runs scored in his last eight games played. He's hitting a less inspiring .213/.269/.394 overall.
Jun 25 - 8:09 PM

Travis Jankowski went 1-for-3 with a double, two walks and a stolen base Saturday against the Reds.

The double, oddly enough, was Jankowski's first in 51 games this year, as he has just three extra-base hits in 76 at-bats. The stolen base was more like Jankowski, who now has 10 on the year and five in his last five games. The 25-year-old is batting .250/.360/.329 while batting primarily atop the Padres' lineup this year.
Jun 25 - 8:05 PM

Fernando Rodney threw a perfect ninth inning against the Reds on Saturday to earn his 17th save.

Rodney struck out two while needing just 13 pitches to dispatch of the Cincinnati club. He's just seventh in the National League with his 17 saves, but that's not a reflection on the 39-year-old's performance this year, as he's been one of the best relievers anywhere. Rodney now owns a 0.31 ERA, 0.87 WHIP and 33/12 K/BB ratio over 28 2/3 innings this season.

Jon Jay - OF - Padres

Jon Jay (wrist, forearm) remains out of the Padres' lineup Saturday against the Reds.

Jay hasn't played since he was hit in the wrist area with a pitch last Sunday and a stint on the disabled list remains a possibility. Travis Jankowski will start in center field again and bat leadoff Saturday.
Jun 25 - 11:34 AM

Melvin Upton crushed two home runs to lead the Padres to a 13-4 whipping of the Reds on Friday.

He finished the day 3-for-5 with four RBI and scored two runs. He now has 11 home runs on the season. Upton was one of the worst hitters in the league his two years in Atlanta but has been pretty good since moving to San Diego last year. His owners could benefit from a 20 homer, 30 steal season from Upton if he continues his current pace. He has stolen 16 bases this year and has stolen 40 or more three times in his career -- most recently in 2010 however.
Jun 25 - 12:01 AM

Colin Rea gave up four runs (one earned) in five innings in a win over the Reds on Friday.

He struck out seven and walked four while giving up three hits. The Padres gave Rea plenty of run support to raise his record to 4-3 with a 4.81 ERA on the season. He lines up for an interleague game against the Yankees in New York next Friday.
Jun 24 - 11:53 PM

Wil Myers went 3-for-5 with a home run and five RBI on Friday night versus the Reds.

The home run was his 17th. He has a .289 batting average to go with 49 runs, 50 RBI and 10 stolen bases. After three injury-plagued seasons, the 25-year-old Myers is finally turning into the fantasy stud we all expected when he was a prospect. He may surpass his career high of 335 at-bats before the All Star break.
