      Mariners' Joaquin Benoit: Traded to Mariners

      The Padres traded Benoit to the Mariners on Thursday in exchange for prospects Enyel De Los Santos and Nelson Ward, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports. Benoit will head back to the AL after spending the last two season with the Padres. He worked as a setup man last season with Craig Kimbrel in town, but he remained a dominant option out of the bullpen, posting a 0.90 WHIP and striking out 63 batters in 65.1 innings out of the Padres' bullpen. Incumbent Mariners closer Tom Wilhelmsen held his own last season, but was not quite as effective as Benoit, so consider Benoit the favorite to open next season as Seattle's closer.

      Padres' Joaquin Benoit: Padres exercise option

      Benoit's club option for 2016 was exercised by the Padres on Tuesday. The right-hander was excellent in his second season with San Diego, but $8 million still seems steep for a 38-year-old setup man. However, it's possible Benoit could end up serving as the Padres' closer in 2016, if the team unloads Craig Kimbrel in the offseason. It's also possible Benoit could generate trade interest, too, from bigger-market teams in need of relief help.

      Padres deal with bullpen woes in Monday's loss to Astros

      Padres relievers Brandon Maurer, Joaquin Benoit and rookie Cory Mazzoni, who was making his major-league debut, combined to surrender six earned runs in two innings of work in San Diego's 9-4 loss to Houston Monday. While Kevin Quackenbush was able to get out of the eighth inning without being charged with an earned run after Benoit let the first four batters of the inning reach base, the team now owns a 2.08 ERA, which ranks 20th in the majors. "We need to get on a little bit of a bullpen roll," manager Bud Black said after the game, per Benoit (3-1) took the loss, allowing three earned runs on two hits and two walks while failing to record an out. "They're making some mistakes, leaving the ball up in the zone, out over the middle of the plate," catcher Derek Norris said. "We've just got to execute some pitches better in some situations." Black believes the bullpen will pitch better moving forward. "They'll come around. They're not pitching like they're going to pitch," he said. "When you see their numbers at the end of the year, they'll be there. When you see their numbers now as a group, there are two or three guys not hitting on all cylinders."
