Daily Friar 8.25.13 

About the only good thing that the Cubs have going for them right now is some core young guys that should make them better in the future. The same could be said about the Padres as well. The Padres ran into one of those guys last night in the form of Jeff Samardzija. He was able to limit the Padres only to two runs through eight innings. While they did try to mount another comeback, it was not meant to be in the end. The biggest news coming out of yesterday was the first step in the release of Edinson Volquez. He was designated for assignment (finally) after the atrocious outing he had Friday night. Expect that to be the last time you see him in a Padres uniform. Today the Padres look to take the rubber match against the Cubs as Andrew Cashner takes on Chris Rusin at 1:10 PST.

Stults solid, but Samardzija limits Padres –

“He was one step ahead of Padres hitters all night, tossing eight innings of two-run ball, as the Cubs won the second game of the three-game series, 3-2.”

A preview of today’s game – ESPN

“Andrew Cashner looks to hold an opponent to two earned runs or less for a sixth straight home start while dealing Chicago its 11th loss in 14 games Sunday.”

Padres designate Volquez, recall Brach – Ian Edward Russell Smith of The Friarhood

“Volquez struggled considerably this season, posting a 6.01 ERA over 27 games, giving up a career high 95 earned runs in 142.1 innings pitched.”

2013 MLB Prospect Review: Max Fried – Fake Teams

“The Padres sent him to full-season Low-A for the 2013 campaign, and through 21 starts has posted a 3.58 ERA, 105 innings pitched, allowed 96 hits, struck out 94 while walking 55 batters and getting grounders at a 1.87 GO/AO rate.”

An interview with Johnny Barbato – MadFriars

“This year after experimenting with him in a variety of roles, including closing where he still leads the Storm with 14 saves, the Padres returned him to the starting rotation where he has shown the promise that made the organization give him first round money in 2010.”

On the farm with Gregorio Petit – Padres 360

“he last 3 seasons have seen Gregorio play for the Rangers AAA team in Oklahoma City, the Indians AAA team in Columbus and this season with the Tucson Padres AAA.  He is currently hitting .287 with 56 RBIs and is not giving up of the dream of returning to the big leagues.”

The case for Reymond Fuentes – Cheri Bell of The Friarhood

“So now we get to the 2013 season. Starting again at AA San Antonio, Fuentes, at 22 years of age, impressed from the start. His line as of August 10:  93 games, 345 AB, hitting .316/.395/.441 with 21 2B, 2 3B, 6 HR and 35 RBI with 29/39 SB  and 41 BB/ 71 SO.”

R.I.P #EVHAU – Jeremy Nash of The Friarhood

“This is sad because we always enjoyed the #EVHAU (Edinson Volquez Hat Angle Update) each time he stunk it up every five days for us.”

Daily Farm Round-Up: 8-24-13 – Alex Bartlett of The Friarhood

“The T-Pads won a close game against Tacoma due to the right arm of Burch Smith, and Reymond Fuentes’ 2-hit night. San Antonio blew out the Hooks as Tommy Medica had a double and 2 RBI. The Storm lost a close game by 1 while Fort Wayne and Eugene were shutout.”
