Sun, Jun 23, 2024, 12:56 PM
Higashioka isn't in the Padres' lineup for Sunday's game against the Brewers.

Sun, Jun 23, 2024, 12:54 PM
Profar (knee) is starting in left field and batting second Sunday versus the Brewers.
Analysis: Profar guaranteed he would return to the starting nine Sunday after missing Saturday's contest, and he has now officially come through on his promise. The 31-year-old has tallied a base hit in each of his last six games, going 7-for-24 with three RBI and three runs scored in that span.

Sun, Jun 23, 2024, 12:48 PM
Tatis (triceps) isn't in the Padres' lineup for Sunday's game against Milwaukee.
Analysis: Tatis made an early exit from Friday's contest after getting hit in the arm by a pitch, and he'll now miss his second consecutive start as a result of the incident. David Peralta will once again start in right field while Donovan Solano serves as San Diego's designated hitter.
Kyle Higashioka
Kyle Higashioka Knocks homer Saturday
Sun, Jun 23, 2024, 10:17 AM
Higashioka went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Saturday's 6-4 win against the Brewers.
Analysis: Higashioka delivered what turned out to be a key long ball in the seventh inning, belting a two-run blast to left field. It was the catcher's fifth homer through 12 games in June after he went deep just once over 17 contests prior to the start of the month. The hot stretch has helped Higashioka earn more playing time, and he's slated to take over primary catching duties for San Diego for at least 10 days with Luis Campusano (thumb) landing on the injured list Saturday.
Ha-Seong Kim
Ha-Seong Kim Goes deep Saturday
Sun, Jun 23, 2024, 10:01 AM
Kim went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and an additional run in Saturday's 6-4 victory against Milwaukee.
Analysis: Kim hit a fourth-inning solo shot that gave San Diego a 4-0 lead. The shortstop also singled in the contest, giving him his first multi-hit performance in over two weeks. Kim is slashing .231/.338/.462 with three homers, 12 RBI, nine runs, two stolen bases and an 11:8 BB:K through 20 games in June.
Jackson Merrill
Jackson Merrill Homers, reaches four times
Sun, Jun 23, 2024, 8:45 AM
Merrill went 3-for-3 with a three-run homer and a walk in Saturday's win over Milwaukee.
Analysis: Merrill singled in his first at-bat before crushing a three-run shot off Carlos Rodriguez in the fourth to put San Diego on the board. The shortstop would reach four times on the night and has now recorded multiple hits in three of his last four games. He's also homered in three of his last four and in seven of his last 10, while posting at least one RBI in four straight.
Robert Suarez
Robert Suarez Picks up one-out save
Sun, Jun 23, 2024, 8:25 AM
Suarez picked up a one-out save in a win over the Brewers on Saturday night while not allowing any hits or walks.
Analysis: Suarez likely wasn't expecting to make an appearance with the Padres up 6-0 to open the ninth, but things changed quickly when Brice Turang launched a grand slam off Jhony Brito to bring Milwaukee back within two runs with two outs in the frame. However, Suarez was able to put out the fire, retiring William Contreras on a groundout to end the game and secure his 19th save of the season. Suarez has not allowed any hits or walks over his last two appearances after suffering his only blown save of the year against the Phillies on June 18. In fact, he's issued only one walk over his last nine outings.
Randy Vasquez
Randy Vasquez Shuts out Brewers over five frames
Sun, Jun 23, 2024, 7:41 AM
Vasquez (2-4) earned the win over the Brewers on Saturday, allowing five hits and three walks over five shutout innings while striking out three.
Analysis: Vasquez struggled with his command early on, issuing walks to three of the first six batters he faced. However, the right-hander would not walk another batter from that point on as he held the Brewers' lineup scoreless over five frames. It was a nice bounceback effort for Vasquez after he surrendered a season-high six runs in his last start. He's now gone at least six innings in five of his last six outings. On the downside, he also issued a season-high three walks in the contest and has walked multiple batters in three consecutive starts.
Yu Darvish
Yu Darvish Expected to start Tuesday
Sat, Jun 22, 2024, 4:49 PM
Darvish (groin) is scheduled to start Tuesday's game against the Nationals, AJ Cassavell of reports.
Analysis: Darvish is set to make his first start since May 29 after an IL stint due to left groin soreness. The 37-year-old made a minor-league rehab start at High-A on Wednesday but only got up to 49 pitches and will likely be under some sort of pitch count against the Nationals. Across 11 starts, Darvish owns a 3.20 ERA and a 1.07 WHIP with 53 strikeouts.
Brett Sullivan
Brett Sullivan Brought up to majors
Sat, Jun 22, 2024, 4:32 PM
The Padres recalled Sullivan from Triple-A El Paso on Saturday, AJ Cassavell of reports.
Analysis: Sullivan will take the place of Luis Campusano (thumb) on the active roster as Campusano hits the IL. Sullivan should operate as the primary backup to Kyle Higashioka while Campusano is sidelined.
Luis Campusano
Luis Campusano Hitting injured list
Sat, Jun 22, 2024, 4:29 PM
Campusano (thumb) was placed on the injured list Saturday but isn't expected to miss more than 10 days, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports
Analysis: Campusano was scratched from Friday's game and held out of Saturday's contest with left thumb soreness, an injury that will require a stint on the IL. While the Padres don't expect the injury to last beyond the minimum 10 days, Brett Sullivan will take Campusano's place on the active roster. Kyle Higashioka should get most of the catching work, though.
Jurickson Profar
Jurickson Profar Guarantees return Sunday
Sat, Jun 22, 2024, 3:49 PM
Profar (knee) is available off the bench Saturday against the Brewers and will "100 percent" be playing in Sunday's series finale, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Analysis: Profar was removed from Friday's game with a left knee issue and was held out of the starting lineup Saturday. However, he'll be back in action Sunday and appears to have avoided significant injury. He's in the midst of a breakout campaign at the age of 31, slashing .320/.415/.483 with 10 home runs across 317 plate appearances.
Jurickson Profar
Jurickson Profar Held out of starting lineup
Sat, Jun 22, 2024, 3:19 PM
Profar (knee) is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Brewers.
Analysis: Profar was removed for a pinch runner late in Friday's game due issues with his knee. Considering he's dealt with an injury to his left knee recently, his removal could be precautionary. However, Tyler Wade will fill left field Saturday.
Fernando Tatis Jr.
Fernando Tatis Jr. Idle Saturday
Sat, Jun 22, 2024, 3:16 PM
Tatis (triceps) is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against Milwaukee.
Analysis: Tatis was hit by a pitch during Friday's game and was lifted from the contest. He'll remain on the bench to begin Saturday's game and is dealing with a bruised triceps. David Peralta will bat sixth and play right field.
Luis Campusano
Luis Campusano Absent from starting nine
Sat, Jun 22, 2024, 3:13 PM
Campusano (thumb) is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against Milwaukee.
Analysis: Campusano was scratched from Friday's lineup with soreness in his left thumb and will remain on the bench to begin Saturday's game. Kyle Higashioka will be behind the plate and bat ninth.
Joe Musgrove
Joe Musgrove Takes step toward return
Sat, Jun 22, 2024, 2:38 PM
Musgrove (elbow) lightly threw weighted plyometric balls Thursday, per
Analysis: A previous report indicated Musgrove could play catch mid-week, but it turns out the extent of his throwing was the work he did with the plyo balls. The workout was, however, a step in his progression toward playing catch, which could happen before the end of the month. Musgrove doesn't seem close to taking part in a rehab assignment and isn't likely to be activated off the injured list until after the All-Star break.
Yu Darvish
Yu Darvish Next start will be with Padres
Sat, Jun 22, 2024, 1:33 PM
Darvish (groin) is expected to come off the injured list to make his next start with San Diego, per
Analysis: Darvish struggled in a minor-league rehab start with High-A Fort Wayne on Wednesday, allowing six runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out three batters over 3.1 innings. He threw only 49 pitches in that outing, but the Padres nonetheless appear intent on moving him back into the rotation for his next appearance. It hasn't yet been announced when Darvish will make that start, but given the typical time between outings, it's logical to expect Monday or Tuesday versus Washington to be the target date.
Xander Bogaerts
Xander Bogaerts Engaging in baseball activities
Sat, Jun 22, 2024, 1:02 PM
Bogaerts (shoulder) has been running the bases, taking light grounders and doing one-handed drills in the batting cage, per
Analysis: Bogaerts broke his left shoulder while making a diving stop in the infield May 20 and remains on the 10-day IL. The veteran shortstop isn't likely to return until at least early July given that he has yet to take regular swings. When he does come back, Bogaerts indicated that he will adjust his swing to use a two-handed follow-through in order to protect his injured shoulder. He's undergoing regular imaging on the shoulder to determine when he'll be allowed to start ramping up further.
Jurickson Profar
Jurickson Profar May have aggravated knee issue
Fri, Jun 21, 2024, 11:19 PM
Profar (knee) was removed for a pinch runner in the seventh inning of Friday's game against the Brewers, AJ Cassavell of reports.
Analysis: Profar dealt with a knee injury earlier in June, and he didn't appear to be running at full strength to begin Friday's game. He was pulled six frames later, though the Padres could have been giving some additional maintenance time as a precaution.
Fernando Tatis Jr.
Fernando Tatis Jr. Dealing with contusion
Fri, Jun 21, 2024, 11:15 PM
Tatis left Friday's game with a left triceps contusion, AJ Cassavell of reports.
Analysis: Tatis exited the game two innings after being hit by a pitch in his arm. He appears to have avoided serious injury, though it's unclear whether imaging has already occurred -- if required.
