Padres manager Bud Black prased the work of catcher Derek Norris on offense and defense on Thursday, MLB.com reports.

"He's been great. ... Very good on both sides, throwing out runners," Black said. "He's gotten real big hits for us. He's been doing his part."

Norris, who has thrown out a league-leading 14 would-be base-stealers, has hit .291/.329/.475 with three home runs and 25 RBI in 141 at-bats.

"He gives you a tough at-bat, he grinds it out, he fouls pitches off, he swings enough at the first pitch to make the pitcher leery of the first-pitch strike," Black said. "He gives you what you look for in a tough at-bat."

Norris is batting second for the third straight game on Thursday.

News
After starting 13 straight games, Padres infielder Corey Spangenberg will get the night off on Wednesday. Spangenberg is not in the starting lineup against the Cubs for manager Bud Black. 

Spangenberg has been getting considerable playing time at second and third base due to the on-going struggles of Jedd Gyorko and Will Middlebrooks.

But both of those players will take their normal positions on Wednesday, allowing Spangenberg, who is just 4 for his last 23, to get a breather.

Upton is 1 for 8 with five strikeouts since delivering a two-homer performance on Sunday. He has hit .284/.348/.561 with 11 home runs, 29 RBI and eight stolen bases in 148 at-bats.

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.

Padres first baseman Yonder Alonso is "still a ways away" from return to baseball activities, manager Bud Black said per Bleacher Report.

Alonso, who is currently on the 15-day DL with a shoulder injury, has a rotator cuff issue that is keeping him away from the field. Alonso has been out of action since May 8 and is hitting .333 with 10 RBI in 87 at-bats this season.

News
With Wil Myers and Yonder Alonso sidelined with injuries, Padres outfielder Will Venable is making the best of his recent playing time, per U-T San Diego.

Venable singled in a run and swiped a base in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Cubs. He is hitting .385 (10 for 26) with five runs scored, a double, a triple, a home run, three RBI and a .484 on-base percentage over his last eight games played.

"Will Venable is doing a nice job for us," manager Bud Black said. "Obviously, in the first five, six weeks of the season, he had to take a step back and he handled it so professionally. We run those guys out there every day and his starts were few and far between, but man, he hangs in there.

"He's always ready. He's always prepared. He's such a great team guy. It's good to see him playing like he is now and contributing. He's going to play now that (Myers) is down and Yonder's down. He's going to do his part."

Wrist - 15-day DL. Out until at least late May (Updated - 5/19/15)
News
The Padres placed outfielder/first baseman Wil Myers on the 15-day disabled list -- retroactive to May 11 -- with left wrist tendinitis, per the team's official website. Myers has been sidelined since May 10 with the injury. He hit .291/.340/.493 with five home runs, 19 RBI and three stolen bases in 134 at-bats at the time of the injury.

"He needs rest. The tendon needs rest," manager Bud Black said of Myers, per The Mighty 1090 AM radio in San Diego. "There's no timetable for his return."

Black also revealed that Myers suffered the same type of injury last year while with the Rays. The 24-year-old missed 70 games with a similar issue.

In a corresponding move, San Diego recalled right-hander Cory Mazzoni from Triple-A El Paso. Mazzoni will be making his second big-league stint with the Padres this season. He allowed six earned runs in two inning of relief earlier this season.

News
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."

News
Padres pitcher James Shields used his curveball at an astonishing rate in his outing on Tuesday. The veteran tossed 43 curveballs of his 107 pitches in his appearance, something he's made a point to use more this season, according to U-T San Diego.

"I think I've kind of locked it in," said Shields. "The last few years, I haven't really had my curveball. I think the beginning of the season, I kind of figured some things out, what I was doing with my curveball. Now I have it, and I feel like I have all my weapons right now."

Shields has thrown a curveball on 23 percent of his pitches so far this season.

"It's tight, it's got good break in the hitting area," Padres manager Bud Black said. "There's not a lot of guys who throw a true curve, the 12-6 or the overspin breaking ball. You see a lot of sliders, you see some cutters, you see slurves, but you don't see the old-school, traditional curve. Guys just don't see it a lot, so it's a little hard to hit."

Padres closer Craig Kimbrel worked past another shaky outing for his 11th save of the season Tuesday night against the Cubs.

Kimbrel surrendered a solo home run to Chris Coghlan with two outs in the ninth inning. The right-hander was charged with a run on one hit and no walks while striking out two in an inning of work to secure a 4-3 victory.

Kimbrel has allowed four earned runs over his last four innings pitched, raising his ERA from 4.63 to 5.74 on the year.

News
Padres pitcher Tyson Ross took a loss on Wednesday after allowing three earned runs on four hits and three walks in seven innings while racking up eight strikeouts in his team's 3-2 defeat against the Cubs.

Ross (2-4) was able to keep his homerless streak alive, and though he has yet to allow a home run or more than three runs in any of his four May starts, he has just one win to show during that stretch. The Cubs were able to jump immediately on the board with an RBI groundout in the first inning then added a pair of runs in the fifth.

Ross owns a 3.93 ERA and 62:29 K:BB ratio in 52 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to square off with the Angels on the road on Monday.
