Daily Friar 3.11.13 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

The Padres lost a rough game yesterday against the Cubs. Jason Marquis started the game off very well, but the guys behind him were unable to get the job done. Marquis pitched four scoreless innings while only giving up two hits; he also struck out two. Tim Stauffer then came in and didn’t fare as well. In two innings of work Stauffer gave up four runs on four hits, one of them being a home run. The other culprit was Dale Thayer who had an even worse outing than that. He gave up five runs on four hits, two of those were home runs all in only 0.2 innings. The good news from the whole day was Marquis as well as Andrew Cashner making his spring debut and pitching a scoreless inning. It will be curious to see how Cashner does here on out. On the offensive side of things, Mark Kotsay had a couple RBIs and Jedd Gyorko seemed to break out of a little slump with a 2-3 day. This is just a recap of stats from the box score, for the full story read the articles below. I will also include box scores at the very bottom of all the WBC games from yesterday.

Marquis throws four scoreless frames in loss –

“Alfonso Soriano hit a two-run double and then scored on Dioner Navarro’s home run in the sixth inning to lift the Cubs to a 9-3 victory Sunday over the Padres.”

Luebke not throwing, but rehab is on schedule – Union Tribune

“At the moment, the 28-year-old isn’t even throwing. He was throwing up until two weeks ago when he felt pain in his surgically reconstructed right elbow. The Padres immediately shut him down. Reports from two leading physicians in the field were positive. But it will be another week or more before Luebke resumes a throwing program.”

Logan Forsythe wearing boot on foot – NBC Sports

“Forsythe is dealing with plantar fasciitis in the foot and received an injection for it Sunday. The Padres don’t seem concerned at this point that the infielder’s injury might keep him from being ready for Opening Day, but he does have a history of foot problems.”

Jason Parks takes a look at some of the top arms in the system – Baseball Prospectus

“Normally, I would just keep these notes for personal use throughout the year, but I was so impressed with the young arms on the field that I needed to voice these thoughts at the earliest possible convenience. I’m not sure any org in baseball can brag on lower-level pitching like the Padres.”

Latest on Padres and Chase Headley – MLBTR

“Andy Martino of the New York Daily News hears from a high-ranking NL West executive that the Padres front office will see how the team plays before determining whether to trade Headley or pursue an extension with him.”

Padres showing some pop in spring – Examiner

“Especially encouraging to Padres watchers has been the early offensive performances of rookie Jedd Gyorko and oft-injured Kyle Blanks, and the strong starts of veterans Chase Headley, Nick Hundley and Cameron Maybin.”

Three for the Show: Right Fielders – Chris Kelly of The Friarhood

“This is the eighth (is this thing still going?!) in a ten-part series where I will identify the top three players at each position in the Padres’ minor league system. Up next: Right Field.”
