Padres Preview: 04/26 James Shields seeks his first win of the season

Pitching matchup for game 2 at AT&T Park. A year ago, in his first season in San Diego, James Shields was the Padres' ace. He had been their Opening Day starter, and at this point in the season he had gone 2-0 in his first five starts while posting a 2.90 ERA. He went on to a 7-0 start and didn't suffer a loss until his 15th game of the year, cementing his leadership role on the field and in the clubhouse. This season he started out as the no. 2 guy in the Padres rotation, behind Tyson Ross. He's now back in the no. 1 rotation spot, but only because of an unfortunate injury that has kept...

Padres Injury Updates: Tyson Ross, Cory Spangenberg

Manager Andy Green offers injury updates on two young Padres Tyson Ross and Cory Spangenberg are currently on the shelf. In a postgame interview last night, manager Andy Green gave out some info to help shed some light on the conditions of these two important players. Tyson Ross was sent to the 15-day disabled list on April 9th due to shoulder inflammation, after getting rocked in an Opening Day start where he clearly wasn't right. He was ordered to rest, and had his first throwing session on Tuesday. He clearly wasn't progressing as hoped, so an MRI was requested. The MRI showed no...

Pirates 11, Padres 1: Leonel Campos has a 135 ERA

No, there's not a decimal point missing. If you were looking for some sort of good news after a day full of bad news, move right along. There is no good news here. The best news is that James Shields went six innings and only gave up three runs, but it wasn't exactly the kind of outing you get thrilled by. The Padres offense went a measly 5-for-31 and failed to draw a single walk. That's still not the truly bad news, though. The bad news is that Leonel Campos had an appearance so bad it makes a dumpster fire look pleasant in comparison. When he took over for Shields in the seventh, he...

Padres Preview: 04/12 Robbie Erlin gets his chance to start

The Padres look to secure at least a series split with a win today in game 2 against the Phillies. They'll send to the mound one of the most successful pitchers of the season so far, yet one that didn't make the Opening Day roster. Robbie Erlin will get his first start of the season after being called up last week to help out the bullpen after an injury put Matt Thornton on the disabled list. In his 2016 debut, Erlin threw 3 2/3 innings of scoreless, one-hit ball in relief. The next day, the Padres announced they were placing Opening Day starter Tyson Ross on the DL with shoulder...
