The Padres promoted Gore from High-A Fort Wayne to Double-A San Antonio on Tuesday, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

The Padres have been steadily advancing Gore through their farm system after he was moved to the team's alternate training site in Arizona in late June following his poor start to the season at Triple-A El Paso. The organization has seemingly been encouraged by the progress Gore has made with his mechanics since he began building up again in the rookie-level Arizona Complex League in mid-August before he made the jump to High-A over the weekend, when he struck out five over a five-inning start. Gore is expected to remain with San Antonio before its season ends Sept. 19. Then, he's expected to report to Triple-A El Paso and remain there until its season ends Oct. 3.
