Padres P Joaquin Benoit credited with win against Diamondbacks
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Though he's only pitched six innings this season, Padres reliever Joaquin Benoit now has a record of 3-0. 

On Wednesday, Benoit entered the game in the top of the eighth inning with the game tied. He gave up one hit during his frame but struck out another and got out of the inning.

In the bottom half, Padres outfielder Justin Upton hit a solo home run, which turned out to be the difference in the game. 

With Benoit entering the game in the top of the eighth, he was credited with the win. 

Benoit now has an ERA of 1.50 this season.

Joaquin Benoit moves to set-up for Padres after Craig Kimbrel trade
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Padres reliever Joaquin Benoit spent most of spring training preparing to be the team's closer. The plan changed when, right before Opening Day, the Padres traded for Craig Kimbrel

Benoit's role has changed to set-up man. He's pitched in four games so far this season, all in the eighth inning. 

After blowing a lead in his first appearance, Benoit has settled down. He's 2-0 with a 2.25 ERA and three strikeouts in four innings.

Padres' Joaquin Benoit 'pretty close' to being ready for season
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Padres pitcher Joaquin Benoit has been dominant this spring, tossing four hitless innings while striking out five and walking one, and he said Monday that he's "pretty close" to being ready for the regular season, MLB.com reports.

"That's because these guys are swinging and teams are really aggressive," Benoit said of his spring performance. "When I'm on the mound, I expect them to be aggressive because I'm going right at them. But I'm pretty close [to being ready for the regular season]."

Benoit mixes two pitches to keep htiters off-balance late in games.

"He has two specialty pitches: He has a high heater that jumps on hitters and can beat them up top, and the split-change down low. It's changing eye levels constantly so you can't sit on one pitch with him," pitching coach Darren Balsley said.

"This guy has passed the test of time as a very experienced capable back-end bullpen reliever, closer, setup guy. It is legit stuff and he has experience," manager Bud Black said. "There's a certain poise to his game, and he's a clear thinker on the mound. He's really settled in here in San Diego being part of historically a very good bullpen, and he's carried on that tradition."

Padres' Black: Joaquin Benoit to close, happy with options
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Padres manager Bud Black said Thursday that while Joaquin Benoit is set to be the team's closer, other relievers could see save chances as well, MLB.com reports.

"You want to get your closer in games because that means you have a lead … and if he's closing games that means you are winning," Black explained. "That means at some point, we have got to put Joaquin down [because], he can't pitch every game. That's what I want."

Black said he has five players available that he's comfortable using in the ninth inning: Benoit, Kevin Quackenbush, Shawn Kelley, Nick Vincent and Dale Thayer.

"Joaquin is projected to be our closer but if he's down then we have a number of options to choose from, guys who have closed major-league games and guys who have been successful at it," Black said. "We have five guys we feel comfortable giving the ball to. That's one of those situations we won't know until we get into the season to see how guys are throwing, how well they're executing their pitches, their confidence, their arms, their stuff … all that stuff adds into the daily decision as to who might close a game if Joaquin is down."

Benoit earned 11 saves in 12 chances with the Padres in 2014, posting a 1.49 ERA and 64:14 K:BB ratio in 54 1/3 innings.
