Daily Friar 8.29.13 

The best compliment you can give to any upper management is to perform well when thrown into a situation where they really need you. That probably came out a lot more convoluted than I meant it to. Anyways, with the absence of Edinson Volquez from the team (who has now signed with Dodgers) the Padres needed an arm to come up and fill in his spot in the rotation. Surely and ERA just over six wouldn’t be terribly hard to replace. Enter Robbie Erlin. He was just called up yesterday and made his triumphant return to the rotation giving up only one run through six innings of work. This is how it should be done in the rotation and I for one am excited to see how he does through the end of the season. Will Venable also had a big night hitting yet another home run and driving in three of the Padres’ five runs. Padres have the day off today before going to LA tomorrow.

Erlin rolls through six innings to win in return –

“Erlin did just that Wednesday night, allowing one run over six innings as the Padres pulled away late for a 5-1 victory over the D-backs in front of a crowd of 20,578 at Chase Field.”

Carlos Quentin needs knee surgery; out for season – CBS Sports

“And now that has come to fruition, as Miller reports that Quentin is done for the season and needs surgery on his knee.”

Padres activate Erlin; option Boxberger – Ian Edward Russell Smith of The Friarhood

“In order to make room for Erlin on the roster, the Padres have elected to option right-handed reliever Brad Boxberger back down to Triple-A Tucson.”

Prospect of the Day: Reymond Fuentes – Minor League Ball

“The hope is that he’ll have enough wippy strength to be a threat for doubles and triples, along with the high batting average/OBP and plenty of steals.”

An interview with Jeremy Baltz – MadFriars

“In his first ten games he hit .405 with power but has cooled down since. He is still putting up very good number in the Cal League where he is hitting .289/.353/.452.”

On the farm with Brandon Kloess – Padres 360

“What I like about Brandon is that he never gave up on what he wanted to do and that was play baseball.  While his college numbers weren’t great, his heart and determination to succeed were there.”

So long and thanks for all the walks – Padres Public

“Watching him pitch was maddening.  His inability to get through 5 innings at less than 90 pitches. Heck, his inability to get through five at all.”

Daily Farm Round-Up: 8-28-13 – Alex Bartlett of The Friarhood

“The Emeralds snapped their 8 game winning streak with a 6-5 victory over the Hops. The TinCaps were swept in a doubleheader while both the Storm and the Missions lost by 1 run. Kyle Blanks continued his rehab as the T-Pads won 4-3.”
