Calf - 15-day DL. Out until at least mid-May (Updated - 4/24/15)
News
The Padres placed reliever Shawn Kelley on the 15-day disabled list Friday due to a left calf strain. The move is retroactive to April 23.

“It's probably something that's not going to take too long or very serious, but the nature of our games, they need us out there every night,” Kelley said Friday, per U-T San Diego. “I'm going to take advantage of it to continue working on what I've been working on and get my calf healed up. When that's good to go, I'll get in some games and get back.”

To take Kelley's spot on the roster, reliever Kevin Quackenbush was recalled from Triple-A El Paso.

“I'm happy to be back. This team's playing great. I'm looking forward to being part of it," Quackenbush said.

Kelley heads to the DL with a 0-2 record and 10.13 ERA in six relief appearances. He has six strikeouts and five walks in 5 1/3 innings.

News
Padres pitcher James Shields didn't factor into the decision Wednesday, allowing three earned runs on six hits and three walks in six innings while striking out five in his team's 5-4 loss to the Rockies.

Shields surrendered a solo home run and an RBI double in the first inning and another RBI double in the second but was then able to settle down and keep the Rockies off the scoreboard until his departure.

"The first inning, my ball was up," Shields said after the game, per MLB.com. "They were swinging early, and I was trying to get ahead of the hitters, and they took advantage of it. I settled down there the rest of the game and got the job done."

Shields has yet to take a loss while posting a 3.24 ERA and 29:8 K:BB ratio in 25 innings.

"I thought he threw the ball fine," manager Bud Black said. "They nicked him there in the first. (Corey) Dickerson got a ball up out over the plate and got a homer. He could have kept going if we didn't get to his spot [in the batting order]. He had eight innings in him, possibly. And he threw up four zeros after they nicked him in the second. Good game. He did great."

Shields is scheduled to face the Astros at home Monday.

News
Padres infielder Cory Spangenberg delivered key doubles in back-to-back games as a pinch hitter Tuesday and Wednesday, and he drew the start at second base and hit second in Thursday's series finale in Colorado.

"We think a lot of Spangy with the bat," manager Bud Black said before Thursday's game, per MLB.com. "He's hit wherever he's been, so that doesn't surprise us when he gets his hits, even though his average is down."

Spangenberg knocked a ground-rule double to lead off the seventh inning Tuesday, eventually coming around to score a key run. He then drove in the go-ahead run with a double Wednesday, but the Padres were unable to hang on for the win.

"He threw a backdoor cutter, sort of gave up on it. It was a good pitch," Spangenberg said of Wednesday's go-ahead at-bat. "And then he went to a two-seamer changeup, and I didn't try to do too much with it. I just took what he gave me."

The two doubles have Spangenberg's line up to .250/.250/.417 in 12 at-bats.

"We think eventually he's going to be a guy in the major leagues who's going to be an offensive producer with average and maybe some stolen bases," Black said. "There's some extra-base hits in there too. We like Cory, and we think there's a bat in there. There's some hits in there. "

News
Mediocrity continued to define the early-season performance of Padres starter Tyson Ross on Thursday in a loss to Colorado.

Ross needed 106 pitches to get through five innings, greatly because he walked four. He gave up two runs on six hits and fanned seven. A Corey Dickerson home run in the fifth played the biggest role in lowering his record to 1-1.

The right-hander has not pitched more than six innings in any game in 2015, though he hasn't performed poorly. He owns a 3.97 ERA, which he will try to lower Tuesday against Houston.
