News
There is a clear reason why the Padres have Justin Upton hitting cleanup. 

In the first inning of Sunday's 11-3 win over the Dodgers, Upton hit a grand slam. Dodgers pitcher Carlos Frias loaded the bases and Upton cleared them with a deep shot to center field on a 2-2 pitch. 

This helped set the tempo of San Diego's barrage of hits and runs for the day. 

"He's been taking the boys and putting us on his back, for sure," said pitcher James Shields to U-T San Diego. "We're going to need some of the other guys to step up as well to win more ball games, but he's been phenomenal."

Upton finished the game 2 for 4 with six RBI. He also hit a two-run double in the second inning. Upton now has 35 RBI for the season. 

Upton is now slashing .284/.343/.562.

Padres pitcher Josh Johnson was dealing with some soreness after his bullpen session on Tuesday, according to U-T San Diego. He was unable to throw on Saturday as originally scheduled.

Johnson, who was transferred to the 60-day DL on Saturday with an elbow injury, also felt his triceps tighten in his bullpen session last week, but didn't feel as though it was a setback. The veteran is yet to throw this season after undergoing Tommy John surgery last year.

News
Padres pitcher Odrisamer Despaigne took the loss on Thursday, giving up two earned runs on six hits and two walks in six innings while striking out four in his team's 3-0 shutout against the Cubs.

Despaigne (2-3) took his third straight loss, although his previous two outings were both blowouts. The starter surrendered a two-run homer to the second batter of the game but was able to pitch well over the remainder of his night. His offense hasn't scored a run of support in three straight outings.

Despaigne owns a 6.11 ERA and 16:11 K:BB ratio in 35 1/3 innings. He's in line to face the Angels on the road on Tuesday, and manager Bud Black said after the game that it's more than likely Despaigne will remain in the rotation for his next potential start, per MLB.com.

Toe - 15-day DL. On Triple-A rehab assignment (Updated - 5/18/15)

With Yonder Alonso and Wil Myers sidelined with injuries, this could Padres outfielder Melvin Upton's best opportunity to show he can still contribute, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

Upton, who has been sidelined all season with a left toe injury, began a minor-league rehab assignment with Triple-A El Paso on Monday. He is hitting .333 (3 for 9) with a double and an RBI in two games. He will need another 40 at-bats before he is activated from the disabled list.

"His pride is kicking in," a friend of Upton said. "He doesn't want to be remembered as the worst contract in baseball history."

Padres starter Ian Kennedy picked up a tough-luck loss on Saturday against the Dodgers. Kennedy went six innings, allowing two runs on six hits. He struck out six and did not walk a batter. He threw 110 pitches, 77 for strikes as the Padres lost 2-0.

Kennedy (2-4) put himself in an early hole, serving up a lead-off home run to Joc Pederson in the first inning. Kennedy allowed another run on an RBI double in the sixth, which would be all the damage against him.

The right-hander still holds an ugly 6.11 ERA through seven starts. He'll look to build off this strong start when he takes the mound again Thursday against the Pirates.
