- The Padres are still finding cause to hope that righty Colin Rea can stave off Tommy John surgery, which he has sought to do through a combination of platelet-rich plasma treatment and rehab/rest. As AJ Cassavell of MLB.com tweets, the team is deciding just how to give him some postseason pitching work to help make a final decision. Rea could appear in the Arizona Fall League, take part in live BP, or even head out for a partial winter ball run. Regardless, Rea is set to throw competitively
- Jarred Cosart underwent successful surgery to clean up his right elbow, and the Padres remain hopeful that the 26-year-old right-hander will be fully recovered by the start of Spring Training.

- Padres general manager A.J. Preller returned from his unpaid 30-day suspension for failing to disclose medical information to the Red Sox in the Drew Pomeranz trade, writes Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune. Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports (links to Twitter) that following the dismissal of Padres CEO Mike Dee, Preller will now report directly to ownership (which Lin specifies further, listing Ron Fowler and Peter Seidler). According to Rosenthal, that arrangement will remain in place

The only issue was that no one could figure out why Dee was fired when just a few months earlier, as a response to the #FireMikeDee movement, lead Padres investor Peter Seidler gave Dee an “A

- At the tail-end of this past season, in just his fourth major league start, Hunter Renfroe became the tenth player in Padres history to drive in seven runs in a game. Coincidentally he was the third out of the last four to do it on September 27, but that's neither here nor there for the purposes of this quiz. What you're tasked with is identifying the nine guys who did so before him.
You have two minutes to type in their last names, including your free answer of Renfroe. That's R-E-N-F-R-O-E; Hu

- We’re just a few months away from this winter’s Rule 5 draft, so it makes sense to take a look back and see how things shook out from the 2015 selections. Several organizations found useful players, even if the most recent class didn’t include an Odubel Herrera-esque breakout sensation. Some of the most recent draftees have probably locked up MLB jobs again for 2017, though others who stuck on a major league roster all year may head back to the minors for further development. (

- The journeyman utility player barely made the roster.Then he impressed everyone with a mix of ability, dedication, and passion. When the Padres signed journeyman utility player Adam Rosales last January, it hardly caused a blip on the news ticker.None of us would have guessed that by the end of the season, he would appear in more Padres games than all but seven players.Along the way, he posted career highs in several categories while providing value and leadership on and off the field.One of the
- What colors will our Padres don next season? Among many questions regarding next year’s Padres team is the one concerning their uniform set: after a fresh change of pace in 2016, what’s next for the Padres and their uniforms?
If you haven’t read the Dennis Lin article regarding the exit of yellow in next year’s uniforms, it seems that the Padres are once again going back to the drawing board for an on-field team identity.
Of course as the SD Hat Guy, caps and uniforms are

- Heading into the 2011 draft, the Cubs were set on Javier Baez with the ninth overall pick, FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal writes. Rosenthal reports of a pre-draft conversation between then-Cubs scouting director Tim Wilken (now a special assistant with the Diamondbacks) and Padres exec Jason McLeod (now with the Cubs). The Padres wanted to take Francisco Lindor with the tenth overall pick and were curious about whether the Cubs would be selecting him. Wilken told McLeod that Baez was a &ld

- A sport full of stats cannot help but achieve some player milestones at season's end. Take a trip through the numbers looking at the Padres who hit round numbers, career bests and made franchise history. For the 7th straight year, we’ll wrap up a Padres season talking about the players’ milestones. Milestones, for those that haven’t participated before, are about Padres players setting league (rare) or career (somewhat rare) records, moving up the Padres franchise leaderboards,
- In order to qualify for the ERA title, a pitcher must throw at least one inning for each team game played. Ordinarily this works out to 162 innings, but there have been exceptions such as 1981, '94, and '95. 1994 is especially notable because that's the year unknown swingman Steve Ontiveros claimed the AL ERA crown with a mark of 2.65 in 115.1 innings spread over 13 starts and 14 relief appearances. Of course that tangent has nothing to do with today's quiz, which is not about Oakland A's pitche

This year the event has been canceled or more accurately been placed on hiatus, so that the team can prepare for their second World Baseball Classic, which is coming to Petco Park in March.You’d think they could do both if they really wanted to, but I don&rsquo

- It seems that yesterday's quiz about the Padres' 1991 roster was exceedingly challenging, so this time around I chose a season that was both more memorable and recent. It stands to reason that people would recall more players from a team that was in the postseason hunt until the final day of the season just six years ago than they would from a third-place squad of a quarter-century ago, so here goes.
An even 40 players suited up for the Friars in 2010, eight fewer than in 1991, so I shaved a min

- Padres starter Tyson Ross’ season-long shoulder issues will be addressed in a procedure to reduce pressure on the bundle of nerves that run down his pitching arm. Last spring, Tyson Ross looked poised for an ace-caliber season.After a disastrous opening day start, shoulder issues plagued him for the remainder of the season.At long last, doctors have diagnosed him with Thoracic Outlet Syndrome.On Thursday the 13th, he will go under the knife to address the issue that likely derailed his ent

- Padres right-hander Tyson Ross, who made only one appearance during the 2016 season due to persistent shoulder troubles, will undergo surgery to relieve thoracic outlet syndrome, manager Andy Green tells Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune. The surgery comes with a projected recovery timeline of four to six months, leaving the Friars hopeful that Ross will be ready for Spring Training. Lin adds that Dr. Robert Thompson, who is considered the nation’s leading expert on thoracic o
- Randy Smith has been with the Padres since 1993, except for short stints with the Tigers and Rockies.As people will tell you, he’s held just about every job in a baseball front office possible and had great success, especially in the 90’s. He was serving as senior adviser for baseball operations when he was fired yesterday.As the Union Tribune’s Dennis Lin tells us, Smith’s firing had nothing to do with Mike Dee’s firing.
San Diego Union-Tribune: Dennis Lin
- 5:14pm: The Padres also dismissed senior advisor Randy Smith yesterday, Lin reports (via Twitter). Smith had spent more than two decades in the Padres organization, though not all in succession. The veteran baseball exec was the Padres’ GM back from 1993-95 (initially named GM at the age of 29) and spent the 1996-2001 seasons as the Tigers’ general manager. In his most recent run in San Diego, Smith had served as the Padres’ VP of player development and director
- I feel like I can be a full-fledged Padres fan again after reading of the ”departure” of Mike Dee from his job as Padres President.His reign has left me as disenfranchised as I’ve ever been with the Padres organization and it happened from the get go.He came to us as a former employee with much arrogance about his knowledge of the Padres, baseball and the city of San Diego.He even installed himself as head of baseball operations with no experience in the realm.I always thought
- After 3 and half years at the helm of the Padres organization, Mike Dee is no longer in charge. In an official statement today, it was stated that “San Diego Padres Executive Chairmen and Ron Fowler and Managing Partner Peter Seidler today announced the departure of Padres President and Chief Executive Officer Mike Dee.” A one sentence announcement that the team no longer has a President and CEO. The move may come as a surprise to many, but at the same time it was not one that is esp
- The Padres parted ways with Mike Dee on Wednesday, a little more than three years after he was hired to be the franchise's president and chief executive officer.
- The Padres have parted ways with president and CEO Mike Dee, according to a report from Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune which the team has confirmed in an announcement. He had held down his role since 2013.
It remains unclear at this point what precipitated the move and just how Dee’s departure came about. The move was not spurred directly by the recent controversy surrounding the organization’s failure to disclose medical information in trade talks, Lin reports.
- The #Padres have issued the following statement today: https://t.co/t2BKD1PQnK
- The Padres' 1991 season is memorable for at least one reason. That year's 84-78 third place team was the first in the major league iteration of the franchise's 23-year history to not wear brown. But how many of the guys who wore blue pinstripes that year can you recall?
48 different players held a spot on that year's roster, ranging from one guy who pitched in one game, up to one who held down first base 153 games. There are six minutes on the clock, which works out to eight answers per minute,
