Brett Wallace: Released by Padres
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wallace was released by the Padres on Sunday, Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reports.

The 30-year-old was the 13th-overall pick back in 2008 with the Cardinals and has appeared in nearly 500 major-league games with the Astros and Padres. He was brutal at the dish in 217 at-bats in San Diego last year, however, batting just .189 with six homers, 20 RBI and a whopping 83 strikeouts. Things didn't get any better this spring, as Wallace's .179 average and 18 K's through 39 at-bats will show, which is what likely prompted his outright release by the club.

Padres' Brett Wallace: Shipped to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wallace was reassigned to minor-league camp Wednesday.

The 30-year-old corner infielder was a long-shot to land a roster spot even on a rebuilding Padres squad, but his .179 spring batting average did nothing to bolster his case, either. Wallace will likely serve as organizational depth at Triple-A El Paso for much of the season.

Padres' Brett Wallace: Returns to Padres on minor league deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wallace has signed a minor league contract with the Padres, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Although the report did not say so explicitly, Wallace will presumably attend major league camp for spring training. He failed to build on the momentum from a strong run over the second half of 2015, batting just .189/.309/.318 in 256 plate appearances last season. Now 30, Wallace is unlikely to fall into 250-plus plate appearances again, even on a rebuilding Padres team.

Brett Wallace: Elects free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wallace has declined his outright assignment to Triple-A El Paso, electing free agency, Jeff Sanders of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

He fared well in a small sample in 2015 but Wallace crashed back to earth this past season, hitting for just a .189/.309/.318 line in 256 plate appearances. Wallace doesn't hit for enough power to make up for his lack of contact (especially at the corner infield spots), but he does take his walks and some team will probably give him a look in spring training.

Padres' Brett Wallace: Homers in win over Blue Jays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wallace went 2-for-3 with a solo shot, two RBI and scored twice Wednesday versus the Blue Jays.

Wallace didn't start a game for the entire month until the Padres hit an AL park for the Jays series, and the DH spot opened the door for the first baseman. In the first two games, he went 0-for-6 with four strikeouts, but made sure he didn't leave town without putting something on the stat sheet. Unfortunately, his sixth home run of the year won't be enough to make up for his struggles this season, and he'll likely head back to the bench when the team returns home to open a weekend series against the Reds on Friday.

Padres' Brett Wallace: Reactivated Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wallace (paternity) was reactivated Thursday, Bob Scanlan of the Padres reports.

Wallace will rejoin the team after missing the previous five games for paternity leave. The 29-year-old is just 2-for-11 with eight strikeouts in 11 games since the start of July. Alexi Amarista was optioned to Triple-A in a corresponding move.

Padres' Brett Wallace: Put on paternity list Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wallace was placed on the paternity list Monday, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

Wallace has played in 15 of the last 19 games, hitting .231/.286/.346 with one home run and four RBI over that stretch. However, his last start was June 29 against the Nationals and he appears destined to continue as a reserve for the remainder of the season.

Padres' Brett Wallace: Crushes three-run homer Wednesdsay
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wallace went 1-for-4 with a three-run homer Wednesday against the Orioles.

Wallace's fifth homer of the year came after the Padres were already trailing by seven runs in a game they'd eventually lose 12-6. Despite leaving the yard, he's struggled mightily in June, as he's only collected eight hits in 41 at-bats, and he's slashing .212/.350/.377 on the season.

Padres' Brett Wallace: Will start Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wallace is in the lineup and batting sixth for Wednesday's game against the Orioles.

Although Wallace owns a very solid .352 OBP, his fantasy value is marginal since he is hitting just .213 with four home runs, 11 RBI and 13 runs scored through 58 games this season. He will have a decent matchup with Ubaldo Jimenez (7.34 ERA) on the mound but is a risky play regardless.

Padres' Brett Wallace: Out of lineup Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wallace is not in the lineup Saturday against Colorado, Bill Center of Padres.com reports.

Wallace has played the last six games, so he'll get a maintenance day as Alexi Amarista returns to the fold. Wallace should return Sunday, and he's hitting just .200 with 12 strikeouts over his last 35 at-bats.

Padres' Brett Wallace: Out of the lineup Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wallace is out of the lineup Sunday against the Diamondbacks, MLB.com's Steve Gilbert reports.

Wallace had been getting the bulk of the starts at third base while Yangervis Solarte was on the disabled list, but with another mouth to feed in San Diego, he could be at risk of losing playing time. For Sunday afternoon, Solarte will get the starting nod at third base, while Alexi Amarista takes over at the keystone.

Padres' Brett Wallace: Launches third homer Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wallace went 2-for-4 with a solo homer Sunday at the Brewers.

Wallace's third homer of the season tied the game in the seventh inning, but the Padres would eventually lose. He came into this contest in a 2-for-22 slump, so hopefully his multi-hit effort can turn things around for him. His slash line currently sits at .200/.358/.400.

Padres' Brett Wallace: Out of the lineup for Game 2 of doubleheader
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wallace is out of the lineup for Game 2 of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Cubs.

Wallace played the first game of the doubleheader so manager Andy Green is giving him the night off for Game 2. The Padres have a number of infielders on the DL right now so it makes sense they'd want to keep one of their everyday guys, like Wallace, as fresh as possible.

Padres' Brett Wallace: Homers in win Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wallace went 2-for-3 with a double, a homer, and a pair of RBI in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Mariners.

Wallace's first home run of the season was just his sixth in 82 games with the Padres, yet he still found himself hitting cleanup behind Matt Kemp. The 29-year-old corner outfielder took advantage of the opportunity this time around, but he'll need to string together multiple strong performances if he wants to bat in that role on a regular basis.

Padres' Brett Wallace: Hitless in first start at third base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wallace got his first start of the regular season at third base and went 0-for-3 in Saturday's win over Arizona.

He was replaced by Adam Rosales late in the game in the extra-inning win. Wallace may continue to figure into the mix of starters at third base -- along with Alexi Amarista and Rosales -- while Yangervis Solarte (hamstring) is on the DL, but Wallace will most likely have a limited role as a pinch hitter, with occasional spot starts.

Padres' Brett Wallace: Returns from sore foot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wallace (foot) walked as a pinch hitter in Friday's exhibition game against the White Sox.

Wallace was sidelined much of the past week with a sore foot, but it doesn't look like an issue for Opening Day. He begins the season with a reserve role.

Padres' Brett Wallace: Dealing with a sore foot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wallace (foot) has been out with a sore foot; however, the injury is minor, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

Wallace has been playing games on the back-fields without running the bases, but it doesn't seem to be that serious. In only 64 MLB games last year, Wallace hit for a strong .302/.374/.521 slash line with five home runs and 16 RBI. While most of his work came against righties and all five of his home runs came against them, he still hit .296 against lefties, which may put him in line for more at-bats against southpaws.

Padres' Brett Wallace: Signs one-year deal with Padres
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wallace signed a one-year contract with the Padres and avoided arbitration.

Wallace was called up from Triple-A El Paso during the 2015 season by the Padres and was the first big league action he had since his time with the Astros. His signing is an indication that he is on track to a part of the team's opening day roster in 2016.

Padres' Brett Wallace smacks first home run of the year in win Friday
by Jason Lempert | CBS Sports Staff

Padres infielder Brett Wallace hit his first home run in nearly two years in the 3-1 win over the Marlins on Friday. Wallace, who went 2 for 3 in the game, belted a solo shot in the fourth inning off Dan Haren to tie the game at 1-1. 

The home run was the first Wallace hit since he hit 13 in 2013 with the Astros. This was just the third game Wallace, who did not play in the big leagues during 2014, has started for the Padres this season. The two-hit night pushed his average up to .321 on the year.

Padres call up Brett Wallace, option Cory Mazzoni, DFA Eury De La Rosa
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

The Padres called up third baseman Brett Wallace on Friday. Wallace was hitting .305 with eight home runs and 37 RBI at Triple-A El Paso. He last played in the Major Leagues in 2013, with Houston. 

To make room for Wallace on the roster, the Padres optioned pitcher Cory Mazzoni to El Paso. Mazzoni had a 20.77 ERA in eight games with the Padres. 

To clear a spot on the 40-man roster, the Padres designated pitcher Eury De La Rosa for assignment. De La Rosa has played for three organizations this season. He was 0-1, 5.00 at El Paso.
