The lack of outfield production leads to questions… 

Scott Hairston is already down on the 15 day DL, Denorfia was added to the 40 man roster, and Chris Young was moved to the 60 day DL. Along with Joe Thatcher’s recent side tweak and Stauffer’s appendectomy, the Padres have had to shuffle the lineup and bullpen. The Padres seem all too familiar with injury riddled seasons. With the recent injuries and an already struggling outfield of “key players,” (Kyle Blanks, Will Venable and Tony Gwynn Jr.) Denorfia is getting a chance to show the Padres if he belongs and maybe even taking over for either Blanks or Tony Gwynn Jr. In his first game, he had a screaming pinch hit single up the middle. In his first start, he was one of the key contributors with two hits, one of which was an RBI single going the other way, and the other being a late inning rally starter in the bottom of the 12th inning against the Giants.
