Yangervis Solarte finished 3-for-4 with an RBI in Tuesday's loss at Arizona.

The Venezuelan switch-hitter has hit safely in six straight, including a pair of three-hit games to open the current series in Arizona. Solarte continues to start regularly and he has a penchant for collecting hits in bunches. He is trending up right now and worth a look as a nice mid-tier DFS value while running hot.

X-rays turned up negative on Jhoulys Chacin's left foot.

Chacin underwent tests after fouling a ball off the foot on Monday. He's expected to take his next turn in the Padres' rotation and will try to bounce back from Monday night's seven-run drubbing versus the Diamondbacks.
Apr 26 - 1:26 AM

Clayton Richard allowed six earned runs, eight hits and three walks while recording just two punchouts over 3 2/3 innings in a loss Tuesday in Arizona.

Richard turned in a quality start last time out against the Diamondbacks, but they obviously made the right adjustments at home in the second meeting. He'll look to bounce back in San Francisco on Sunday opposite Ty Blach. He took his first loss of the season against the Giants at Petco Park, allowing five runs - four earned - over six innings on April 9.

Jhoulys Chacin has been sent for X-rays of his left foot.

Chacin fouled a ball off the foot on Monday night against the Diamondbacks and showed up Tuesday with some swelling. The right-hander yielded seven earned runs over six innings in the loss to Arizona.
Apr 25 - 8:35 PM

Ryan Schimpf is out of the Padres' starting lineup Tuesday night against the Diamondbacks.

Ryan Spangenberg is at third base and batting second with Yangervis Solarte starting at second base and hitting cleanup. Schimpf is just 6-for-59 (.102) this season, though he has slugged three home runs.
Apr 25 - 5:58 PM

Padres recalled INF Cory Spangenberg from Triple-A El Paso.

Spangenberg failed to make the Padres' Opening Day roster out of camp, but he'll get the call now after batting .348/.403/.470 with one home run and three stolen bases over 17 games at Triple-A. The former first-round pick could see semi-regular playing time in San Diego, but he doesn't carry much in the way of fantasy upside.
Apr 25 - 5:36 PM

Padres sent RHP/C Christian Bethancourt outright to Triple-A El Paso.

Bethancourt had allowed nine runs -- six earned -- in 3 2/3 innings this season out of the San Diego bullpen, and he was 1-for-7 with three strikeouts as a hitter. The 25-year-old passed through waivers unclaimed.
Apr 25 - 5:34 PM

Jhoulys Chacin was tagged for seven runs in six innings by the Diamondbacks on Monday.

Taking one for the team, Chavez was sent back out for the sixth even after giving up a grand slam in the fifth that made the score 6-0 Diamondbacks. By start this year, Chacin has allowed nine, zero, four, zero and now seven runs. He's "due" for one of his good starts Sunday against the Giants, though that's mostly because the Giants aren't hitting.
Apr 25 - 2:08 AM

Wil Myers hit a three-run homer in a losing cause Monday against the Diamondbacks.

Myers has a hideous 22/2 K/BB ratio in 84 at-bats, but it hasn't stopped him from hitting .345 with five homers and 14 RBI. Like some other hitters, he's going for more flyballs than usual, with great success so far. That average should come way down, though.
Apr 25 - 2:02 AM

Padres recalled OF Jabari Blash from Triple-A El Paso.

Blash is taking Travis Jankowski's (foot) spot on the roster and should take his spot as the regular left fielder, too. He's managed just a .152/.287/.291 batting line in 94 plate appearances in the majors so far but does have big raw power.
Apr 24 - 6:57 PM

Padres placed OF Travis Jankowski on the 10-day disabled list with a right foot bone bruise.

It's unclear at this point how much time Jankowski might miss. The speedy outfielder has been one of the worst regulars in baseball this season with a .160/.263/.180 batting line. Jabari Blash has replaced him on the roster and should be the new regular left fielder.
Apr 24 - 6:55 PM

Hunter Renfroe went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Sunday's loss to the Marlins.

Renfroe connected for a two-run shot off Tom Koehler with nobody out in the fourth inning. The dinger was his fourth of the season and bumped his RBI total to eight. In addition, Renfroe is working to a .250/.269/.434 triple-slash over 76 at-bats.
Apr 23 - 8:49 PM

Yangervis Solarte went 1-for-3 with an RBI single in Sunday's win over the Marlins.

Solarte hit an RBI single off Tom Koehler in the first inning, but was unable to come up with another hit for the duration of the contest. After hitting a respectable .286/.341/.467 in 2016, the 29-year-old second baseman is off to a .243/.325/.386 start through the first 70 at-bats of the current season.
Apr 23 - 8:45 PM

Luis Perdomo allowed three runs on four hits over five-plus innings in Sunday's loss to the Marlins.

Perdomo had not seen the mound since he was forced out of his regular-season debut due to shoulder inflammation. In his return on Sunday, the 23-year-old right-hander struck out five and walked three. He kept the Marlins off the scoreboard completely through the first five innings, but was unable to record an out in the sixth in what eventually developed into a six-run frame for Miami. Perdomo will try to truly get into the swing of things in a road start against the Giants next time he takes to the mound. In 35 appearances (20 starts) last season, he pitched to a 5.71 ERA, 1.59 WHIP and 105/46 K/BB ratio over 146 2/3 innings.
Apr 23 - 8:36 PM

Padres optioned RHP Zach Lee to Triple-A El Paso.

Lee was surprisingly effective in a spot start in Colorado earlier this month but was then roughed up in two relief outings. He'll rejoin El Paso's rotation.
