      Padres' Kevin Quackenbush: Being used in seventh inning lately

      Quackenbush has given up three earned runs over his last 3.1 innings and now sports a 4.05 ERA on the young season. Quackenbush was used as the next man up following a Padres starter getting pulled in his last two outings so it seems a middle relief role is emerging. The 27-year-old righty holds a 3.32 ERA and 1.16 WHIP during his career in San Diego and will continue to be counted on as a middle-to-late inning reliever during 2016.

      Padres' Kevin Quackenbush: Makes Opening Day roster

      Quackenbush will be on the Padres' Opening Day roster, AJ Cassavell of reports. Manager Andy Green confirmed Friday that Quackenbush will indeed be in the Padres' bullpen to start the year. Quackenbush was one of the Padres' better relievers last season but had some difficult luck as evidenced by his 4.01 ERA compared to his 3.56 FIP. He figures to work in a setup role this season in front of presumptive closer Fernando Rodney.

      Padres' Kevin Quackenbush: Makes successful spring debut

      Quackenbush (hamstring) threw a perfect inning with one strikeout against the White Sox on Friday in his spring debut. All Quackenbush needed was 11 pitches to retire the side in order, though he didn't exactly face stiff competition in Vinny Rottino, David Walker, and Andy Parrino. Still, Quackenbush seems to have made a full recovery from the hamstring strain that limited him early in camp. He appears in line to open 2016 as the top setup option in front of closer Fernando Rodney.

      Padres' Kevin Quackenbush: Expected to make spring debut Friday

      Quackenbush (hamstring) is expected to make his Cactus League debut Friday, Corey Brock of reports. A hamstring strain has slowed Quackenbush in the early going, but he should easily make Opening Day so long as he avoids any further complications from here. Fernando Rodney (hamstring), who is also slated for a Friday debut, is the favorite to close games for San Diego at the start of the season.

      Quackenbush (hamstring) (hamstring) will likely throw off a mound Friday or Saturday,'s Corey Brock reports. Given that his hamstring strain isn't believed to be severe, Quackenbush should still have plenty of time to compete with Fernando Rodney (hamstring) for the closer's role in a wide-open San Diego bullpen. Rodney is also on track to throw off a mound this weekend.

      Padres' Kevin Quackenbush: Slowed by hamstring strain

      Quackenbush has been slowed during recent workouts by a hamstring strain, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Manager Andy Green said he doesn't expect the injury to affect Quackenbush's status as he competes for a role in the team's wide-open bullpen. He'll likely be limited for a few more days, but the Padres don't view the injury as anything that could hamper him long-term. "With bullpen arms, there's really no need to rush these guys," Green said over the weekend. "... It takes five, six outings to get ready for the season. We're going to be cautious with those guys."

      Padres' Kevin Quackenbush: Candidate to close

      Quackenbush is one of the Padres' closer candidates following the trades of Craig Kimbrel and Joaquin Benoit. Keep in mind this is January speculation, before the first pitcher has reported to spring training, and not hard news coming from the Padres. Nick Vincent and Jon Edwards are also among the candidates, but Brandon Maurer will be stretched out to compete for a starting job.
