Padres' Brian O'Grady: Dropped from 40-man roster
O'Grady cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A El Paso on Friday.
O'Grady filled a minor role as a depth outfielder this season but didn't acquit himself well, hitting .157/.267/.333 in 61 plate appearances. Heading into his age-30 season, it's no surprise to see him fail to get claimed off waivers given that he's yet to find success at the major-league level.... See More ... See Less

The Padres optioned O'Grady to Triple-A El Paso on Sunday, Bob Scanlan of Bally Sports San Diego reports.

Padres' Brian O'Grady: Slugs second homer
O'Grady hit a solo home run in his only plate appearance during Sunday's loss to the Marlins.
With San Diego trailing 9-2 and down to its final out, O'Grady provided a brief delay of the inevitable with a solo shot to right field. The long ball was his second of the campaign. O'Grady has slashed an impressive .314/.387/.628 in the minors this season but has been mostly unproductive with the big club, batting .178 with a 27.3 percent strikeout rate.... See More ...

Padres' Brian O'Grady: Stars in Monday's win
O'Grady went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run, an RBI double and a walk Monday in the Padres' 9-4 win over the Cubs.
Called up from Triple-A El Paso earlier in the day, O'Grady stepped into the starting nine in place of a resting Wil Myers and didn't take long to make an impact. O'Grady gave the Padres a four-run lead when he slugged a 407-foot blast off Adbert Alzolay in the third inning, and he later added another run-scoring extra-base hit in the bottom of the eighth for good measure. Despite the stellar showing Monday, O'Grady doesn't look like he'll be in line for regular playing time in the San Diego outfield with Myers, Tommy Pham and Jurickson Profar all healthy and with Trent Grisham (heel) likely to return from the injured list later this week....

Padres' Brian O'Grady: Returns to majors
O'Grady was recalled by the Padres on Monday, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.
O'Grady has bounced on and off the active roster throughout the season and is now on his fourth separate stint in the big leagues this year. He hasn't hit nearly well enough to stick around, posting a .115/.250/.192 slash line in 33 plate appearances, but he'll get the start in right field Monday against the Cubs, with Wil Myers getting the night off. Tucupita Marcano was optioned in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less

Padres' Brian O'Grady: Back in big leagues
O'Grady was recalled by the Padres on Monday, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Hopefully O'Grady didn't make it far after being optioned to Triple-A El Paso on Sunday, as he'll turn around and head straight back to the big-league roster a day later. The Padres need an extra outfielder with Trent Grisham (heel) landing on the injured list in a corresponding move. O'Grady has gotten into 11 games while bouncing on and off the active roster this season but has done very little with his limited at-bats, hitting .100/.269/.150.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Brian O'Grady: Returns to minors
The Padres optioned O'Grady to Triple-A El Paso on Sunday.
O'Grady was shipped back to the minors to make room on the 26-man active roster for Wil Myers, who was reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list.

Padres' Brian O'Grady: Recalled, starting in Game 1
The Padres recalled O'Grady from Triple-A El Paso ahead of Tuesday's doubleheader with the Rockies, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports. He'll start in right field and bat seventh in the opening game of the twin bill.
O'Grady was one of the hitters San Diego elected to bring up from the minors after five position players were placed on the COVID-19 injured list Tuesday. Three of the players in question are Wil Myers, Jurickson Profar and Jorge Mateo, all of whom have been factors at the corner-outfield spots this season. O'Grady could be in store for a near-everyday role in the short term until the Padres get some reinforcements in the outfield.... See More ... See Less

Padres' Brian O'Grady: Sent to alternate site
The Padres optioned O'Grady to their alternate training site Monday, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.
O'Grady was informed that he missed out on the Opening Day roster after Jorge Mateo and Tucupita Marcano secured the final two bench roles that were up for grabs. The 28-year-old made a spirited bid for a reserve job this spring, posting an .843 OPS while going 2-for-3 on stolen-base attempts over 44 Cactus League at-bats.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Brian O'Grady: Goes deep twice Monday
O'Grady went 2-for-3 with a pair of home runs, four RBI and two walks Monday in a Cactus League contest versus Milwaukee.
O'Grady is competing for a reserve role this spring, and he badly needed Monday's breakthrough performance with Jorge Mateo -- one of his primary challengers -- hitting well so far. Mateo may still have a leg up considering that he is out of minor-league options (O'Grady is not), but the latter can make a push if he can carry his effort Monday forward.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Brian O'Grady: Vying for backup CF role
O'Grady will compete for the backup center field job during spring training, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.
Manager Jayce Tingler mentioned a few Padres players who are likely to see time in center in spring, and O'Grady's experience at the position in the minors would seem to make him a feasible choice to claim the backup CF role if he's able to impress during spring training. However, the 29-year-old has thus far not done much with his big-league opportunities, so it remains to be seen how much playing time he'll get on a San Diego squad that is considered a World Series contender....

O'Grady bats left-handed and turns 29 in May. He will likely make the team in a bench role.... See More ... See Less
