Padres' Melvin Upton needs at least 40 at-bats before DL activation
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

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' Odrisamer Despaigne allows two runs in loss vs. Cubs
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

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' Bud Black: Derek Norris has been 'great'
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

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.

Padres' Brandon Morrow (shoulder) completes first bullpen session
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Padres starter Brandon Morrow completed a 32-pitch bullpen session on Thursday, the first time he has taken to a mound since landing on the disabled list in early May with shoulder inflammation. The right-hander was able to mix in all of his pitches with no issues reported.

He is expected to throw another bullpen session over the weekend before the team decides on the next steps in his recovery, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.

“It’s good that he’s up on the mound and feeling well enough to pop up there and throw all of his pitches and feel confident about his arm,” Padres manager Bud Black said. “So that’s a good thing.”

The Padres are home underdogs (+101) on Thursday, per VegasInsider.com.
