Padres unveil City Connect uniforms

But it looks good on you!

The colorful uniforms feature sleeves of pink and mint, with “San Diego” emblazoned across the chest in those same hues. They feature outlines of yellow, and—taken as a whole—the uniforms are meant to match the vibrant colors of San Diego’s fabled pink and yellow sunsets beyond the Pacific Ocean.

Manny Machado leaves loss with left ankle sprain | ESPN

DENVER—San Diego Padres star third baseman Manny Machado left Sunday’s 8-3 loss to the Colorado Rockies after injuring his left ankle while taking a tumble at first base trying to beat out an infield grounder.

Machado’s leg appeared to turn awkwardly while he was running to first base in the top of the first inning. He struggled to put weight on the ankle as he was helped off the field. Machado was later diagnosed with an ankle sprain after X-rays came back negative.

Chris Paddack’s medical red flag killed Mets-Padres deal

Now it can be told. The Mets-Padres deal was canceled after Mets doctors raised a red flag over right-hander Chris Paddack’s medicals. They look correct now, as Paddack had Tommy John surgery Wednesday and will be out for the Twins until next year.

The original proposed deal had Paddack, Eric Hosmer and reliever Emilio Pagan going to the Mets for Dom Smith, and enough money going to the Mets where it was a $25 million hit for them to cover the four years remaining on Hosmer’s deal. Mets people decided that if Paddack had to miss more than a year, it wasn’t worth it. Though Hosmer is killing it for the Padres (.336), the Mets’ plan was to deal Hosmer in a second trade that was being discussed simultaneously, anyway.

That makes sense the Mets were planning to deal Hosmer, as Pete Alonso prefers not to DH much. … Jacob deGrom best case scenario is likely July now. The Mets aren’t giving out any more timetables, however. … The Padres tried to trade Dinelson Lamet before optioning him, but though the former Cy Young vote-getter was throwing 97 mph, an inconsistent slider was hurting results. Still, there should be takers on a buy-low deal. … Fernando Tatis Jr. is projected back in late June. … The Mets’ quiet concern remains the bullpen. The aptly named Colin Holderman, just called up, will get the first crack, before they contemplate trade options.

Ted Leitner, Larry Lucchino to join Padres Hall of Fame

Together, Ted Leitner and Larry Lucchino will enter the Padres Hall of Fame.

The team announced Friday that Leitner, the longtime radio (and sometimes TV) broadcaster for the Padres from 1980 through 2020, and Lucchino, the club’s president and CEO from 1995 to 2001, will be inducted into the Padres Hall of Fame before the July 7 game against the San Francisco Giants.

The ceremony, fittingly, will be at Petco Park, which likely would not exist without Lucchino, hired by John Moores two years after spearheading efforts to build Oriole Park at Camden Yards.

“We knew right from the outset that this was all about a ballpark play to stabilize the team,” Lucchino said by phone Friday afternoon. “But I had been warned by various people in baseball, including Peter O’Malley, that I should not come west for this experience, because I could not tell from where I was, but the Padres games are just where they should be. They should be on the Dodgers’ station because it was a strong overlap between San Diego and Los Angeles.

“While there was some overlap, I think San Diego has demonstrated to the world that it is a great baseball town.”

Padres nearing deal with Robinson Canó

After being released by the Mets, Robinson Canó appears to have found a new home. The Padres are closing in on a Major League deal with the eight-time All-Star, sources told MLB.com on Thursday.

The move, which was first reported by MLB Network insider Jon Heyman, is not yet final, and the team has not announced the details.

The 39-year-old Canó was designated for assignment by the Mets on May 2 despite still having two years and $37.6 million left on his contract. He batted .195 with one home run and three RBIs in 12 games with New York in 2022. After being DFAed, Canó would make the veteran minimum in San Diego.

Padres announce Motorola as official jersey patch partner

The San Diego Padres, in conjunction with Motorola, today announced that the Chicago-based telecommunications giant will serve as the official jersey patch partner of the organization beginning with the 2023 Major League Baseball regular season. A patch of the iconic Motorola “batwing” logo will be woven into the shoulder of the different versions of the Padres uniform. The jersey patch partnership, which was unveiled today through a video featuring third baseman Manny Machado and pitcher Blake Snell, is the first of its kind across all 30 Major League Baseball clubs.

In addition to becoming the official jersey patch partner of the Padres, Motorola will serve as the presenting partner of the Padres Hall of Fame, including all-new interactive technology displays and product integration throughout the exhibit. Additionally, Motorola is prominently featured on signage in left field and in various locations throughout Petco Park.

Padres irked by Giants’ pile-on strategy

By the bottom of the second inning on Tuesday night, the Giants had already raced out to a nine-run lead over the Padres, ambushing starter Yu Darvish with six runs in the first and four more in the second. At that point, the game, for all intents and purposes, was over. The drama was only beginning.

Steven Duggar, whose single plated the final run of that second inning, promptly swiped second base with a nine-run lead. Then, in the bottom of the sixth, with the Giants still leading by nine, Mauricio Dubón dropped a bunt single up the third-base line.

The Padres dugout did not respond kindly to the situation. Manager Bob Melvin chirped from the top step. First baseman Eric Hosmer made his feelings known to Dubón.

“I definitely told him how I felt, how we felt about it,” said Hosmer, following the Giants’ 13-2 victory at Oracle Park. “He said it was a sign given to him by their staff. I just told him I think you’ve got to be a little bit smarter in that situation. You’ve been playing professional ball for a good amount of time obviously if you’re at this level. You’ve got to be smarter than that.”

The Giants felt otherwise. They felt that Dubón’s bunt and Duggar’s steal were well within the unwritten rules. Those were the smart plays, they said.

“I fully support both of those decisions,” Giants manager Gabe Kapler said. “Our goal is not exclusively to win one game in a series. It’s to try to win the entire series. Sometimes, that means trying to get a little deeper into the opposition’s ‘pen. I understand that many teams don’t love that strategy.”

Milwaukee Brewers acquire catchers Victor Caratini, Alex Jackson in trades with San Diego Padres, Miami Marlins

The Brewers acquired Victor Caratini and Alex Jackson on Wednesday to address their catching depth, a day after Pedro Severino was suspended for the first 80 games following a positive drug test.

Milwaukee sent minor league outfielder Korry Howell and catcher Brett Sullivan to the San Diego Padres in exchange for Caratini. The Brewers landed Jackson from the Miami Marlins for minor league infielder Hayden Cantrelle and pitcher Alexis Ramirez.

The Brewers, who open the season Thursday at the Chicago Cubs, sent Jackson to their Triple-A affiliate in Nashville.

Severino tested positive for the performance-enhancing substance Clomiphene, a women’s fertility drug that has been used by some athletes to counter side effects of steroids use.

“Once that happened, we began calling around, seeing what catchers might be available,’’ Brewers president David Stearns said. “Caratini is someone who we’re very familiar with and have had interest in before and are pleased that we’re able to line up with San Diego and bring him into the fold today.”

Sources: Minnesota Twins to acquire Chris Paddack in deal with San Diego Padres

The Minnesota Twins have agreed to acquire right-handers Chris Paddack and Emilio Pagan in a trade with the San Diego Padres, sources told ESPN’s Jeff Passan on Thursday.

The Twins are sending left-hander Taylor Rogers and outfielder Brent Rooker to the Padres, sources said.

Paddack, 26, impressed in San Diego as a rookie in 2019, going 9-7 with a 3.33 ERA. But he has struggled since, with his ERA ballooning to 4.73 in 2020 and then 5.07 last season, when he battled elbow and oblique injuries over the final two months before being shut down in September.

San Diego Padres acquire LHP Sean Manaea in trade with rebuilding Oakland A’s

The San Diego Padres have acquired left-hander Sean Manaea in a trade with the Oakland Athletics.

In return, Oakland is getting right-hander Adrian Martinez and infielder Euribiel Angeles. San Diego also got right-hander Aaron Holiday in the deal.

Manaea, 30, went 11-10 with a 3.91 ERA in 32 starts last season for the A’s. He now joins one of the deepest rotations in the majors as the Padres feature Opening Day starter Yu Darvish, Joe Musgrove, Blake Snell, and Nick Martinez. Right-hander Chris Paddack is on the injured list with an oblique injury while fellow righty Mike Clevinger will begin the year on IL as he continues to recover from Tommy John surgery.

Padres trade for versatile Matt Beaty from Dodgers

The Padres and Dodgers swung a rare trade on Monday, with Matt Beaty headed to San Diego in exchange for Minor League infielder/pitcher River Ryan.

Beaty, who was designated for assignment by the Dodgers on Wednesday, should fill a useful role in San Diego. The Padres are short on outfield options, particularly in left field, and their bench needed a boost, too. Beaty, a left-handed hitter with a knack for reaching base, posted a .270/.363/.402 slash line across 120 games last season.

“He’s a professional at-bat,” Padres manager Bob Melvin said of Beaty. “He’s got a high on-base percentage, the kind of guy that takes a lot of pitches. Could see him as a pinch-hitter potentially. He can play a little outfield, a little first base, so he’s got some versatility there.

Hosmer knows the situation but would love to see it through with Padres

“I’ve never been through a trade deadline where my name was constantly being brought up, so that was a new experience for me last year,” he said Tuesday. “But I feel like after that, I’m kind of numb to it now. I just realize it’s all part of the business. You look at every roster throughout the league, there are one or two guys on each team that are untouchable. Everyone else is available. So I don’t have hard feelings over it. I’m not hurt about it. That’s just part of what we do.”

Hosmer was, according to people close to him, more hurt than he let on when word leaked the Padres were in talks to move him before last year’s deadline. Several teammates said he did not allow his feelings to show even inside the clubhouse, though some of them made it known at the time they thought it was a mistake to trade him. Multiple veterans also were dismayed no one from the front office gave Hosmer, a 10-year veteran, a heads-up his name might surface in trade rumors. Those players said they and other players they knew of had been notified in similar situations while with other teams.

“It’s different wherever you go,” said Hosmer, who spent seven seasons with the Royals before signing with the Padres before the 2018 season. “If my situation was in Kansas City, it would have been handled a little differently. But I’m not in Kansas City. I’m in San Diego. That’s how they operate here. I’m not holding a grudge because no one came up to me and told me what’s going on. I learned that’s part of the business.”

Yanks deal Voit to Padres for righty prospect Lange

The New York Yankees on Friday announced that they have acquired right-hander Justin Lange from the San Diego Padres in exchange for infielder Luke Voit.

Lange, 20, was a first-round selection (34th overall – Competitive Balance Round A) of the Padres in the 2020 First-Year Player Draft out of Llano High School in Llano, Tex. He made his professional debut in 2021, making nine starts for the Rookie-level Arizona Complex League (ACL) Padres, going 0-3 with a 6.95 ERA (22.0IP, 18H, 17ER, 15BB, 29K, 1HR).

Prior to the 2020 First-Year Player Draft, the 6’ 4” right-hander was ranked 50th on Baseball America’s Top 500 list and was No. 57 on MLB Pipeline’s list of top draft-eligible prospects. Lange had his senior season cut short due to the COVID-19 pandemic and was a 2020 Perfect Game Preseason All-American First-Team selection. Prior to signing with the Padres, he had committed to Dallas Baptist University. In 2019, he earned Perfect Game Honorable Mention and Underclassmen All-American honors.

Padres Discussed Chris Paddack As Part Of Trade Deadline Talks With Nationals

Before the Dodgers acquired Max Scherzer and Trea Turner from the Nationals at the trade deadline, the Padres were known to also be in the hunt for both players, with San Diego reportedly coming particularly close to landing Scherzer before the Nats pivoted towards the Dodgers’ offer.  Top catching prospect Luis Campusano was discussed as part of the Padres’ negotiations with Washington, and The Athletic’s Dennis Lin reports that the Padres also “dangled” Chris Paddack as part of the Scherzer talks.

Paddack (who just turned 26 earlier this month) tossed 108 1/3 innings last season, as he was limited by three separate trips to the injured list due to COVID-19, an oblique strain, and then a slight UCL sprain that ended his season in mid-September.  The timing of that oblique strain could’ve played a role in Paddack’s deadline fate, as he pitched on July 27 but was then placed on the IL on July 31, the day after the deadline — the Padres might have taken Paddack off the table in trade talks knowing that he was about to be sidelined with an injury.

After posting a solid 3.74 ERA over 174 innings in 2019-20, Paddack took a step backwards in 2021, and it’s fair to guess that his injuries likely played some role in his lesser numbers.  Plus, Paddack’s 5.07 ERA was surely impacted by a very low 60.7% strand rate, and his 4.05 SIERA paints a more favorable impression of last season’s performance.

Ryan Ludwick to join Reds

Puzzling strategy. With Ludwick, Chris Heisey, Drew Stubbs, and Jay Bruce, aren’t the Reds outfielders going to wilt in the hot sun due to their skin color?

Ryan Ludwick and the Cincinnati Reds agreed to a $2.5 million, one-year contract Monday, according to a person with knowledge of the deal.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Monday night because the deal was pending a physical and no announcement had been made by the team.

An All-Star in 2008 with St. Louis, the 33-year-old Ludwick was traded from San Diego to Pittsburgh at the July 31 deadline last season. He batted a combined .237 with 13 homers and 75 RBIs.

Ludwick could give the Reds the right-handed bat they’ve been seeking to complement lefty sluggers Joey Votto and Jay Bruce. He figures to see playing time in left field, a spot filled mostly by Chris Heisey down the stretch last season after Cincinnati traded Jonny Gomes to Washington in late July.

TSN: Padres sale held up by questions about limited partners

Here we go again:

Major League Baseball has been embarrassed in recent years by financial debacles surrounding the ownership of the Los Angeles Dodgers and New York Mets. And baseball is determined to avoid being burned again, Forbes.com reports.

That’s the real reason owners tabled approval of the sale of the San Diego Padres to Jeff Moorad at last week’s owners meetings, the report says. Commissioner Bud Selig is not convinced of the net worth of Moorad’s limited partners and is putting them “under a microscope,” Forbes reports.

Blasts from the Past

With the Hall of Fame results being announced today, we decided to take a trip down memory lane and dig up some old scouting reports from the Baseball America archives on some of the ballot’s notable candidates. . .

8. Barry Larkin, ss, 21, 5-11, 175, R-R
Larkin looked right at home in AA, hitting .267 for Vermont. He didn’t show power (one home run in 255 at-bats), but that will come. The key for him was just getting his feet on the ground, and he was not overpowered by the high level of competition (21 strikeouts in 255 at-bats). He will have good power for a shortstop.

6. Edgar Martinez, 3b, 25, 5-11, 175, R-R
Martinez’s discipline will produce runs. He’s averaged 70 RBIs the last four years. In the field, he’s solid, with good reactions and the soft hands of a middle infielder.

Cubs acquire Rizzo in trade with Padres

Theo: You’re looking good, Riz.
Rizzo: Eat your heart out.
Theo: And sloppy seconds are my style!

The Cubs acquired first baseman Anthony Rizzo and right-hander Zach Cates from the Padres on Friday, sending right-hander Andrew Cashner and outfielder Kyung-Min Na to San Diego.

The 22-year-old Rizzo batted .331 with a 1.056 OPS, 34 doubles, 26 homers and 101 RBIs in 93 games for Triple-A Tucson last year… Rated the top first-base prospect in the league by MLB.com, Rizzo struggled during his brief time in the Majors last season batting .141 with one home run and nine RBIs in 49 games…

Cates, 22… made his professional debut last year, posting a 4-10 record and 4.73 ERA in 118 innings over 25 starts for Class A Fort Wayne. He struck out nearly a batter an inning and allowed only four home runs on the year.

Cashner, 25, went 2-6 with a 4.29 ERA in 60 big league appearances with the Cubs, including one start, over the last two years….he was limited to just seven outings in the Majors last season due to a right shoulder strain.

Na, 20, hit .268 with 10 doubles and 22 RBIs in 83 games between four different teams in the Cubs’ Minor League system last year.

Fangraphs: Q&A: Bud Black: Pitching at Petco

DL: Should you pitch more to contact in Petco than in other ballparks?

BB: I think that you can, but there are a couple of ways to look at that. You don’t want to lay the ball in there. But I do think that it can help you mentally — knowing that if you throw the ball to certain spots — you can feel good about it. When you’re behind in the count, you can throw to certain spots, as well.

More than anything, if you’re a strike-thrower… that helps you at Petco. If you’re an extreme fly ball pitcher, that helps you at Petco. When the ball gets hit into the air, it hangs up and maybe doesn’t travel as well because of the coastal situation we have — the heaviness of the air. It’s not unlike San Francisco or Dodger Stadium.

Some pitchers might be hurt because they’re fly ball pitchers. That doesn’t apply to us as much because we play 81 games in our park, plus nine more in both San Francisco and Los Angeles.

DL: Do you want fly ball pitchers on your staff, as opposed to guys who tend to keep the ball on the ground?

BB: Not necessarily. It’s whatever a pitcher has results with. It’s simply that a fly ball pitcher isn’t effected as much in Petco as he would be in a place like Cincinnati, Philadelphia or Toronto.

Thanks to Abe.

12. Jaff Decker, OF: Outfielder with power, walks and the athleticism of a beer-league softball player.
13. Reymond Fuentes, OF: Outstanding defender in center with speed; big questions about bat and power.
14. James Darnell, OF: Great year at Double-A, but it was a level repeat and he’s no longer an infielder.
15. Blake Tekotte, OF: Hard not to love for effort; good fourth-outfielder skills.
16. Edinson Rincon, OF: Scouts like the bat, but power is debatable and defense is ugly.
17. Jonathan Galvez, 2B: Gap power and speed, but bad approach and poor defense.
18. Matt Lollis, RHP: Right-handed has the size of a defensive end, but needs to harness his stuff.
19. Adys Portillo, RHP: Progress is disturbingly slow, but upside is still there.
20. Simon Castro, RHP: Has gone backwards from big prospect days, as fastball is only dependable pitch.

Padres get Huston Street from Rockies to replace Heath Bell

UPDATE: Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports that it’s a done deal, with the Padres assuming “most” of Street’s contract and sending the Rockies a player to be named later in exchange….

Olney describes the talks as “ongoing” and Street has been linked to several other teams at various points this month, with the Rockies now preferring Rafael Betancourt in the ninth inning.

He’s pricey at $7.5 million with a $9 million option or $500,000 buyout for 2013, but Street is still just 28 years old with a 3.11 career ERA that includes a 3.50 ERA and outstanding 170/33 K/BB ratio in 167 innings for the Rockies. Toss in the fact that going from Coors Field to Petco Park would solve his issues keeping the ball in the ballpark and Street could really thrive in San Diego as Heath Bell‘s replacement.

Omar Minaya hired by San Diego Padres for undisclosed front office position

I get my Naval Base Percentage from San Diego!

A year after seeing his five-year stint as Mets general manager end with a thud, Omar Minaya is back in the baseball biz after being hired by the San Diego Padres to an undisclosed front office position.

The move, first reported by SI.com, will most likely see Minaya in an advisory role to Padres GM Josh Byrnes and deal with scouting – particularly in Latin America – and trades.

Minaya, 53, who was fired by the Mets in October 2010, was the Amazins GM from 2005 through the 2010 season and saw his share of ups and downs in Queens.
