Padres' Jose Azocar: Strikes out three times in loss
Azocar went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in Sunday's 8-5 loss to the Phillies.
With Trent Grisham (shoulder) out of the lineup, Azocar was able to pick up his fifth straight start in the outfield. Grisham is considered day-to-day and could be ready to return to center field Tuesday in Arizona following Monday's off day, but Azocar would still have a potential path to playing time in right field, where he would occupy the short side of a platoon with the lefty-hitting Nomar Mazara....

Padres' Jose Azocar: Collects three hits Wednesday
Azocar went 3-for-5 with a double, a triple and two RBI in a 10-4 win against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.
Azocar singled home a run in the first inning and knocked an RBI double in the seventh. He also tripled in the third, falling a homer shy of a cycle. The outfielder came into the contest having collected only two hits in his previous 16 trips to the plate, but Wednesday's performance lifted his season slash line up to .267/.316/.378....

Azocar made the start in left field and reached base via an error in his first at-bat of the contest. He proceeded to steal second base but was left stranded there. Azocar singled in his next plate appearance before being replaced for a pinch hitter in the sixth inning. The outfielder has three thefts this season, but he's been caught four times.... See More ...

Padres' Jose Azocar: Back on bench Tuesday
Azocar is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Cardinals.
Azocar had started in four of the Padres' last five games, but he'll head to the bench with right fielder Wil Myers (knee) returning from a two- game absence. The righty-hitting Azocar could still carve out a part-time role as a platoon mate in center field for the lefty-hitting Trent Grisham.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Jose Azocar: Returns to bench role
Azocar is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cubs.
Azocar started each of the Padres' last three games, going 1-for-10 with four strikeouts. He'll likely serve as the team's fourth outfielder moving forward now that Wil Myers is back from the injured list to join Trent Grisham and Jurickson Profar as the Padres' regulars in the outfield....

Padres' Jose Azocar: Starting in right field
Azocar is starting Monday's game against the Cubs, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
The 25-year-old is in the starting lineup for just the sixth time this season, but Azocar and Trayce Thompson should see an uptick in playing time after Matt Beaty (shoulder) was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday. Over 23 games this year, Azocar has hit .208 with a double, two RBI, a run and two stolen bases.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Jose Azocar: Swipes bag in win
Azocar appeared as a defensive replacement in Sunday's 2-1 victory over Atlanta and notched a walk and a stolen base.
Azocar took over in right field for Matt Beaty to begin the eighth inning and walked in his only plate appearance. The 25-year-old subsequently stole second base but was left stranded there. Azocar stole 32 bases across two minor-league levels in 2021 and is 1-for-2 in theft attempts so far this season.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Jose Azocar: Wins Opening Day roster spot
Azocar will be on the Padres' Opening Day roster, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.
Azocar has yet to make his major-league debut, and his .289/.308/.447 slash line in 49 games for Triple-A El Paso last season was merely good for an 81 wRC+. He'll give the Padres added outfield depth for now, but it's possible he loses his spot to Brent Rooker, who was acquired in a trade with the Twins on Thursday.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Jose Azocar: Signs MiLB deal with Tigers
Azocar signed a minor-league contract with the Tigers on Thursday.
The 23-year-old reached the Double-A level in 2019, hitting .286/.317/.399 with 10 home runs and 58 RBI over 129 games. He'll likely return to Double-A Erie next season, where he'll look to improve his strikeout rate after amassing 132 strikeouts last year.... See More ... See Less
