    James McDonald has been a big part of the Pirates’ surprising season, but he just hasn’t been the same pitcher since the All-Star break. He hit rock bottom last night against the Padres, giving up a season-high seven runs over just 4 1/3 innings as part of an eventual 9-8 loss. McDonald actually cruised through…

    Cameron Maybin missed his third straight start last night as he continues to nurse soreness in his right wrist. While Padres manager Bud Black said that a stint on the disabled list is “highly unlikely,” Corey Brock and Chelsea Janes of MLB.com report that he could sit out the rest of the weekend series against…

  3. Cliff Pennington lands on disabled list with sprained bat

    Jul 20, 2012, 6:22 PM EST

    Cliff Pennington

    Well, technically it’s with a sore elbow, but no one is buying that excuse. The A’s placed Cliff Pennigton on the disabled list after his latest 0-for Thursday. He had gone hitless in four straight games, taking his average down to .197 for the season. That comes with just 17 extra-base hits, 16 RBI and…

    Angels/Giants 22, Tigers/Braves 0: So, I’m a Braves fan and my girlfriend is a Tigers fans and each of our teams got the crap beat out of them last night. So we agreed that baseball sucks and decided to watch downloaded “Parks and Recreation” episodes instead. Good call, yes? I mean, Mike Trout and Buster…

    Because the non-All-Stars deserve recognition too — even when they’d prefer to hide their faces — here’s a look at some midpoint leaderboards in reverse order. OPS 1. Dee Gordon (SS LAD): .562 2. Cliff Pennington (SS Oak): .563 3. Cameron Maybin (CF SD): .596 4. Jamey Carroll (INF Min): .597 5. Justin Smoak (1B…

  6. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    New York Yankees first baseman Teixeira misses a ground ball hit by Tampa Bay Rays' Johnson during a MLB American League baseball game in St. Petersburg, Florida

    Rays 4, Yankees 3: Mark Teixeira committed his first error of the season, which allowed in the go ahead run. Hey, he’s allowed one bad day, right? All it takes is one bad day to reduce the sanest man alive to lunacy. That’s how far the world is from where I am. Just one bad day.…

  7. Cameron Maybin hits the longest homer of 2012

    Jul 3, 2012, 1:13 AM EST

    Cameron Maybin

    Padres center fielder Cameron Maybin took Arizona’s Trevor Cahill way out of Chase Field on Monday night, hitting a 485-foot homer to left-center. ESPN Stats & Info gives it a one-foot edge over Nelson Cruz‘s homer on June 3 and four feet on Travis Hafner‘s blast on April 15. The homer was just Maybin’s fourth…

    According to Corey Brock of MLB.com, Cameron Maybin is currently dealing with a sprained right wrist. Maybin was sent for X-rays after leaving this afternoon’s game against the Mets in the sixth inning. Maybin acknowledged that his wrist has been bothering him for a few days now. It doesn’t sound like the disabled list is…

  9. Astros’ 5-foot-5 hitting machine Jose Altuve goes 4-for-5, now batting .377 at age 21

    Apr 25, 2012, 5:17 PM EST

    Jose Altuve

    Houston’s offense is one of the most improved in baseball and sophomore second baseman Jose Altuve is a big reason why. He came into today hitting .344 with a .918 OPS and notched four more hits in a 7-5 victory over the Brewers. Altuve is a really fun player to watch because he’s 5-foot-5 (on…

  10. Aaron Harang falls just short of history with nine consecutive strikeouts

    Apr 13, 2012, 11:26 PM EST

    Aaron Harang Getty

    Aaron Harang led the National League in strikeouts way back in 2006 as a member of the Reds, but we certainly don’t think of him a strikeout-type anymore. Some blame Dusty Baker for killing his arm, but the 33-year-old right-hander has averaged just 6.6 K/9 over the past two seasons. Still, he came very close…

  11. Padres sign Cory Luebke to contract extension

    Cory Luebke Getty

    After locking up center fielder Cameron Maybin and catcher Nick Hundley on long-term deals earlier this month, the Padres just announced a short while ago that they have signed left-hander Cory Luebke to a four-year contract extension with club options for 2016 and 2017. The deal could potentially cover all of his arbitration seasons and…

  12. Chris Denorfia may not be ready for Opening Day

    Chris Denorfia has yet to play a spring training game because of a lower back injury and manager Bud Black told Bill Center of the San Diego Union Tribune that the Padres are worried he won’t have enough to time be ready for Opening Day. There is a little concern. He’s not progressing to the…

  13. Yu Darvish impresses in his first major league action

    Mar 7, 2012, 3:53 PM EST

    Yu Darvish

    Months of anticipation of Yu Darvish‘s debut led up to less than a half hour of baseball action, but it was exciting baseball action all the same. The tale of the tape: two innings, 36 pitches, 26 strikes, no runs, a couple of hits, three strikeouts, a spiffy defensive play and the beginning of what’s…

  14. Scenes from Spring Training: Yu Darvish Mania

    Mar 7, 2012, 12:30 PM EST

    Auxilliary Press Box

    I’m not gonna say that there’s a lot of interest in Yu Darvish‘s first start, but the Padres’ PR staff has roped off 100 seats in a section along the third base line as an auxiliary media section.  Yeah, this is not your usual Wednesday morning in the Cactus League. I got here super early and made…

  15. Padres and Cameron Maybin agree to five-year extension with club option for 2017

    Mar 3, 2012, 1:30 PM EST

    San Diego Padres v Atlanta Braves

    UPDATE: Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com passes along word that the deal is official. Crasnick also notes that Maybin’s desire for a no-trade clause was denied because the Padres have a club policy against giving no-trade clauses. 12:05 PM: Corey Brock of MLB.com confirms that the deal is worth $25 million. Sounds like a potential bargain…

  16. Running down the rosters: San Diego Padres

    Feb 24, 2012, 6:11 PM EST

    Cameron Maybin

    One of the surprise teams of 2010, the Padres will try to rebound this year from a 2011 season that saw them lose an additional 19 games and finish 71-91. And just to make it a bit more of a challenge, the team will give it a go without ace Mat Latos, who was sent…

  17. Cameron Maybin changes agents, puts long-term contract talks with Padres on hold

    Jan 17, 2012, 12:48 PM EST

    San Diego Padres v Atlanta Braves

    Last month the Padres were said to be interested in working out a long-term contract extension with Cameron Maybin, but Corey Brock of MLB.com reports that the 24-year-old center fielder recently switched agents and the two sides have “tabled” all negotiations. Maybin won’t even be arbitration eligible for the first time until next offseason, so…

  18. Padres ready to talk extension again with Cameron Maybin

    Dec 25, 2011, 9:14 AM EST

    From Dan Hayes of the North County Times comes word that the Padres are planning to re-engage young center fielder Cameron Maybin early next month about a contract extension. The two sides first broached the topic of a long-term deal in September, but decided to table talks until the winter. And now it’s time to get…

  19. Rays acquire reliever Burke Badenhop from Marlins

    Dec 12, 2011, 6:47 PM EST

    Burke Badenhop

    Now this is more like what we’re used to seeing from the Marlins: cutting corners by giving away a perfectly useful arbitration-eligible player. The Rays on Monday picked up right-hander Burke Badenhop from Miami for minor league catcher Jake Jefferies. It’s a nice get for Tamps Bay. Badenhop’s ERA has climbed slightly, going from 3.75…
