    Conforto powers Harvey, Mets to 9-3 rout of Padres

    Back in spring training, Michael Conforto appeared ticketed to the minors.

    Padres prospect Dinelson Lamet to debut Thursday

    On Feb. 26, Dinelson Lamet entered a Cactus League game in Peoria, Ariz., allowed a hit and walked four batters. He was lifted before he could record an out. The grisly results from his first spring training appearance belied the talent in his right arm. Three months later, the Padres pitching prospect

    Rogue Drone Attacks Crowd At San Diego Padres Game

    A drone—or, if you wish, a fancy RC helicopter with a camera—flew into the San Diego Padres' park on Sunday afternoon. It got the attention of the announcers. It also got the attention of the fans. San Diego police caught up with the drone operator, whom they described as a man in his 20s (if you

    Padres '5-Win' ticket plan falls short of potential

    The “5-Win Pass” the Padres unveiled Monday clears the eye test, but struggles on the sniff test. On the surface, it's creative. On its face, baseball's losingest team is rolling up the sales sleeves to stem the turnstile tide. At simple periscope depth, though, cracks begin to reveal themselves

    Diamondbacks 1, Padres 5: Left behind

    Record: 26-19. Pace: 94-68. Change on 2016: +6. In somewhat obscure baseball stats, there's a thing called a “Maddux' - a complete-game in under 100 pitches. It was named, obviously enough, after Greg Maddux, who performed the feat 13 times in his career. It's kinda rare. Indeed, going into

    The third scheduled day off (fourth overall counting a rare San Diego rainout on May 7) affords the Padres the opportunity to give their starting pitchers extra rest. Trevor Cahill, however, will not factor in those plans. On the disabled list with shoulder inflammation, the 29-year-old right-hander

    NL Notes: Cardinals, Padres, Phillies

    The Cardinals were aggressive in trying to sign Cuban outfield prospect Luis Robert, but general manager John Mozeliak sensed the 19-year-old would end up elsewhere, writes Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com. Robert proved Mozeliak correct when he agreed to sign with the White Sox on Saturday. Ultimately, St

    Padres still in on Luis Robert, but not considered favorites

    Luis Robert, possibly the last big-money prospect to come out of Cuba, will be eligible to sign with a major league team on Saturday. The Padres, who since July 2 have dropped more cash on international players than any other club, are still in contention for Robert's services, sources say, though

    Friar talk: A pitcher that truly hits? Color the Padres interested

    It's May 17. The Padres are 11 games under .500. The draft is 26 days away. In other words, it's wholly appropriate to turn our attention to the draft as Union-Tribune beat writer Dennis Lin did in today's paper. Absent from Lin's list of potential choices for the Padres' third overall

    Padres preparing for first top-five draft pick since 2009

    The last time the Padres had a top-five selection in the June draft, they used it on a can't-miss prospect and signed him for $6.25 million. At the time, it was the largest bonus ever given to a high school player. Eight years later, Donavan Tate is set to join the University of Arizona football

It was his eighth relief appearance, and he had given up at least one hit in every one of them. His ERA stood at 8.10. The Marlins' top setup reliever wasn't getting
