December 15, 2017

A.J. Preller connected with Matt Klentak (Philadelphia Phillies GM) Friday morning, flipping the number 13 prospect in the Padres organization for 28-year-old shortstop Freddy Galvis.

Hunter Renfroe– RF, Triple-A, El Paso Chihuahuas 11-20, 5 2B, 1 3B, 1 HR, 8 R, 5 RBI, 17 TB It’s been a week in the minors for Hunter Renfroe, and he hasn’t missed a beat from where he left off last time he was in Triple-A.

Down on the Farm: August 12- Enyel De Los Santos Dominates/Tatis Hits #21

August 12, 2017

El Paso Chihuahuas (58-62) Won 4-3 Right-hander and newest Chihuahua, Jordan Lyles, took the ball for the Chihuahuas on Saturday night in his first appearance in the Padres’ organization.

Down on the Farm: August 5- De Los Santos, Stillman & Morejon Pitch Well

August 6, 2017

The San Diego Padres affiliates were 3-3 on Saturday. It rained heavily in New Orleans, so the Chihuahuas game was cancelled. They will look to play a double-header on Sunday, if Mother Nature cooperates. Enyel De Los Santos continues to impress, as the right-hander went seven shutout innings for the Missions on Saturday. The bullpen uncharacteristically blew the lead, as Trey Wingenter and Aroni Nina both allowed one run on…

After another solid week, Buss is now sporting a 168 wRC+ on the season and an OPS over 1.000. Despite Buss’ success, it remains increasingly unlikely that Buss will see any big league playing time this season, especially…

Padres News: Benoit Dealt to Mariners for Prospects

November 12, 2015

Well all eyes were on the San Diego Padres because of recent rumors swirling around Andrelton Simmons and the Braves. In true A.J. Preller fashion a deal was made, but the deal was with the Seattle Mariners as the Padres moved their setup man Joaquin Benoit for two prospects. This opens the door for Brandon Maurer to become the full-time 8th inning man for the Friars. Benoit had his $7.5…
