Daily Friar 3.19.13 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

There was no Daily Friar yesterday as I was making my way back to San Diego from Peoria. I had a great time taking in Saturday’s game and seeing some people all excited for the new season to start. Sunday the Padres played the Angels and Diamondbacks in split squad action, which both teams wound up losing. Yesterday they came back together and took on the Cubs, which also resulted in a loss. Clayton Richard had a rough outing as he gave up five runs on seven hits. What is nice to see at this point in spring is that the starters are seeing longer outings. Clayton pitched 6 2/3 innings yesterday and the game that I saw on Saturday Tyson Ross pitched 5 1/3. The bright spot of yesterday’s game was the bullpen held up and allowed no runs in their 2 1/3 innings of work. Tommy Layne pitched the 1/3 and Huston Street and Luke Gregerson each had an inning. There is some bad news to report as we will see below: Chase Headley will be out for a month with a thumb injury. Read about that below:

Self help can’t counteract rough start –

“Edwin Jackson allowed one run over six innings Monday and Dave Sappelt hit a three-run home run as the Cubs defeated the Padres, 5-2, at the Peoria Sports Complex.”

Edinson Volquez leads the Dominican Republic to a win over Netherlands –

“After a rocky start, Volquez settled in on Monday night and gave the Dominican Republic exactly what it needed: five strong innings against the Kingdom of the Netherlands in the World Baseball Classic semifinals of the Championship Round.”

Chase Headley breaks his thumb – CBS Sports

“San Diego Padres third baseman Chase Headley will miss at least the first two weeks of the season after breaking the tip of his left thumb.”

Steve Adler takes a look at who can fill in the role – The Friarhood

“The Padres have plenty of young bucks that can handle the hot corner until Headley is healthy.  The bad news?  Most of them are injured as well.  Currently, the Padres have four candidates to cover the hot corner”

Logan Forsythe expected to return this weekend – NBC Sports

“Nursing plantar fasciitis in his right foot, Forsythe won’t have a whole lot of time to get ready for the season, but he’ll probably be available on Opening Day as long as he avoids a setback.”

Injuries already mounting for Padres – Fox Sports

“Still, a low-revenue team like the Padres operates with less margin for error than wealthier clubs.”

Minor League Camp Report: March 17 – MadFriars

“With the big league playing split-squad games, a number of guys got called over from the back fields, making Sunday a relatively quiet day. The lower affiliates stayed home while Double-A and Triple-A went on the road to play Los Angeles.”

Padres still interested in Rick Porcello – MLB Daily Dish

“While the Padres are interested in Porcello, Rosenthal notes that the club isn’t willing to meet the Tigers’ asking price of one of their top relievers in exchange for the 24-year-old.”

FSSD vs TWC – Chicken Friars

“It seems disheartening that yet another season can be lost due to business issues, but that is a real possibility in a dispute without any true leverage to force a solution.  It happened last year, it can happen again.”
