Padres' Jose Pirela: Collects three hits in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pirela went 3-for-5 with two RBI in Thursday's 4-3 loss to the Rockies.

Pirela raised his batting average to .254 in 390 at-bats this season after hitting a solid .288 across 312 at-bats in 2017. The 28-year-old has scored 52 runs and slapped 27 extra-base hits.

Padres' Jose Pirela: Nabs steal in start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pirela went 1-for-4 with a stolen base and a run scored in Wednesday's loss to Colorado.

Wil Myers (nose) was scratched from the starting lineup after a pre-game grounder nicked him in the face, so Cory Spangenberg slid over to third base, allowing Pirela to get a rare start against a righty at the keystone. Myers is doubtful for Thursday's series-finale, so Pirela could be in line for another start after spending the majority of August in a backup role.

Padres' Jose Pirela: Not capitalizing on added opportunities
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pirela will start at second base and hit eighth Sunday against the Cubs.

The Padres are opposing a left-handed starting pitcher (Jon Lester) for the fourth time in six games, with Pirela entering the lineup at the keystone on each occasions. In his prior three starts, Pirela went just 1-for-10, which won't make a compelling case for manager Andy Green to move the 28-year-old back into a full-time role. Instead, Pirela looks to be locked into the short side of a platoon at second base with Carlos Asuaje.

Padres' Jose Pirela: Falls into platoon role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pirela is out of the lineup Sunday against the Diamondbacks.

Pirela finds himself on the bench for the third straight game against a right-handed starting pitcher (Zack Greinke), while Carlos Asuaje gets another nod at the keystone. At this point, it looks like Pirela has settled into the smaller side of a platoon with Asuaje at the position, limiting the fantasy appeal of the latter. Though his .263 batting average is well above the MLB mean, Pirela hasn't provided much in the way of categorical juice outside of the runs category. He has managed only three home runs, four steals and 26 RBI across 349 plate appearances on the season.

Padres' Jose Pirela: Hits third homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pirela went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

He had sat the previous two games in favor of Carlos Asuaje at second base, and Pirela's playing time may continue to trend downward with Asuaje faring well since his return from the minors. Even after the homer, Pirela is still slugging just .359 this season. According to Fangraphs, Pirela has been a below-replacement-level player so far in 2018.
