Daily Friar 6.4.13 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

Welcome back to the Daily Friar on this Tuesday. I missed the past couple of days due to a busy schedule, but I’m here today to bring you what news and stories there is and may have missed from the past couple days. Last night the Padres lost a tough one in Los Angeles to the Dodgers. Eric Stults had a great outing minus two home runs early in the game. One came in the first and the other in the second, and that was all the Dodger scoring in the entire game. Stults went on to pitch a good portion of the game going seven innings and allowing only those two runs on six hits. The bad news is the Padres offense was completely silent against rookie pitcher Stephen Fife. Chris Capuano was supposed to get the start, Fife filled in due to Capuano being injured. Fife went 5.1 innings allowing only one run before turning the game over to the bullpen that proved to have no problem with the Padre bats. A loss is hard to swallow, but a loss to the Dodgers is that much worse especially by only one run. They will try their luck again and hopefully the Padres can come away with a win tonight and advance to a potential series win.

Yonder Alonso was out again – NBC Sports

“I’m swinging the bat but the speed is not 100 percent yet,” Alonso said Monday. “Nature is taking its course. Maybe tomorrow or the next day. It won’t be long.”

Padres release Edinson Rincon – MLBTR

“Rincon, 22, suffered an injury in minor league spring training camp and has not appeared in a game this season.”

Why did Robbie Erlin get sent back down? – Rant Sports

“The Padres like what they have seen from Erlin, but the fact of the matter is he needs to continue making consistent starts in Triple-A.”

Will Carlos Quentin get his comeuppance sooner than later? – Yahoo

“We will get him,” he said. “It may not be next time we see him. It may not be the time after that. It may not be two times after that. But we will get him. I promise.”

An interview with Cory Spangenberg – MadFriars

“This year Spangenberg has been much improved on his return to the Diamond hitting .288/.354/.459 with sixteen stolen bases in nineteen attempts through the end of May.”

Gyorko is the real deal – Glen Miller of The Friarhood

“The Padres were confident that Gyorko would hit at the big league level and it looks like they were right. They also believed he could make the transition to 2B effectively and he’s proving them right there too.”

Daily Farm Round-Up: 6-3-13 – Alex Bartlett of The Friarhood

“Justin Hancock continues to impress as the TinCaps shutout the Whitecaps. Led by Austin Hedges’ 3 RBI night, the Storm blow out the Rawhide 10-3. The T-Pad offense homers twice while Sean O’Sullivan continues to be a solid contributor for Tucson as the T-Pads win 4-2. San Antonio had the day off.”
