Padres recalled RHP Cory Mazzoni from Triple-A El Paso, placed him on the 60-day disabled list with a strained shoulder.

This was done purely as a procedural move to open a spot on the 40-man roster for Wil Myers who was activated on Friday. Mazzoni pitched just 8 2/3 innings for the Padres this season, compiling a 20.77 ERA and 3.23 WHIP.
Sep 4 - 9:48 PM

Padres activated 1B/OF Wil Myers from the 60-day disabled list.

Myers will rejoin the Padres lineup immediately on Friday, batting sixth and starting at first base. He has been sidelined since June 13 following surgery on his left wrist. The 24-year-old is hitting .277/.327/.459 with five homers and 19 RBI in 35 games this season.
Sep 4 - 7:05 PM

Padres assistant general manager Josh Stein said Thursday that Yonder Alonso (back) will be sidelined for a "couple more days."

Alonso hasn't played since exiting Tuesday's game with lower back tightness. It sounds unlikely that he'll see any action for this weekend's series against the Dodgers.
Sep 4 - 10:55 AM

Josh Johnson (elbow) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Lake Elsinore on Friday.

He'll throw one inning Friday and is set for another inning for Lake Elsinore on Monday. It looks like the Padres will bring Johnson back as a reliever, assuming he makes it back at all. He hasn't pitched in a game since August of 2013 and has had numerous setbacks along the way as he works his way back from a second Tommy John surgery.
Sep 4 - 10:53 AM

Padres sent LHP Chris Rearick outright to Triple-A El Paso.

It's been quite a ride the last few weeks for Rearick. He was designated for assignment by the Padres, claimed by the Rangers, designated for assignment again, claimed back on waivers by the Padres and is now off the 40-man roster.
Sep 4 - 8:56 AM

Derek Norris (shoulder, elbow) went 3-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored in his return to the lineup Thursday.

Norris missed a game with a hyperextended left shoulder and elbow, but clearly it's not affecting him at the plate. He should be fine moving forward.
Sep 4 - 8:39 AM

Yangervis Solarte finished with a huge game in Thursday's 10-7 win over the Dodgers, going 4-for-5 with a solo home run, two doubles and three runs scored.

Tight effort by Solarte, who played a key role in the Padres' come-from-behind win. He cracked a solo homer in the seventh to draw his team to within 7-6, then finished off the night's scoring with an RBI double in a four-run eighth. The strong performance boosted the 28-year-old infielder's season triple-slash to .267/.321/.428. He's also hit 12 homers and driven in 55. This is the first season in which Solarte's seen more than 252 at-bats.
Sep 4 - 1:52 AM

Colin Rea didn't earn a decision in Thursday's contest with the Dodgers, yielding two runs on four hits over five innings.

Rea struck out six and walked two on the evening. The Dodgers didn't break through against him until his final inning on the mound, when Joc Pederson and Chase Utley came through with RBI hits. Despite the relative lack of damage in Thursday's game, the 25-year-old right-hander still holds a paltry 5.47 ERA and 1.42 WHIP. He'll face the Rockies at home in his next start.
Sep 4 - 1:34 AM

Padres recalled LHP Frank Garces from Triple-A El Paso.

The 25-year-old southpaw has already appeared in 34 games for the Padres this season, registering a 4.94 ERA, 1.58 WHIP and 20/15 K/BB ratio over 31 innings. He'll continue to function as a situational left-hander for the Padres.
Sep 3 - 9:07 PM

Padres sent LHP Caleb Thielbar outright to Triple-A El Paso.

Thielbar was designated for assignment by the Friars at the end of August and cleared waivers without a claim. The left-handed reliever allowed five hits and three runs in five innings earlier this year with Minnesota and then got picked up off waivers August 8 by San Diego. He won't have another shot at the majors until 2016.
Sep 3 - 3:38 PM

Justin Upton went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored in a 10-inning, 4-3 loss to the Rangers on Wednesday.

Upton has been all over the place this season, posting OPS numbers of .842 in April, .964 in May, .608 in June, .552 in July and .923 in August. Here's to hoping he carries last month into September. Batting .253, Upton is on pace for 29 homers and 88 RBI.
Sep 3 - 2:04 AM

Ian Kennedy matched his career high by striking out 12 over seven frames in a no-decision Wednesday against the Rangers.

He allowed two runs on five hits and two walks. Quietly, Kennedy has been one of the best pitchers in baseball since the start of June (he entered that month with a 7.15 ERA). Coming into tonight, Kennedy had a 2.32 ERA and 9.66 K/9 rate across his last eight starts. He's a strong start on Monday at home against the Rockies.
Sep 3 - 1:54 AM

Padres recalled RHP Jon Edwards from Triple-A El Paso.

Edwards was acquired from the Rangers last month as part of the Will Venable trade. The right-hander should get a few looks in middle relief down the stretch as he auditions for an Opening Day bullpen job for 2016.
Sep 2 - 4:43 PM

Padres recalled OF Alex Dickerson from Triple-A El Paso.

Dickerson will act as outfield depth down the stretch for the Padres. He's posted an impressive set of numbers this season at the Triple-A level, but the 25-year-old outfielder can be ignored for fantasy purposes.
Sep 2 - 4:42 PM

Padres purchased the contract of C Rocky Gale from Triple-A El Paso.

Gale will serve as an emergency third catcher for the Friars over the final four weeks of the season.
