Naylor is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Red Sox.
Naylor rarely starts against left-handed pitchers, so it should come as little surprise that he was held out Friday with southpaw Eduardo Rodriguez on the bump for the Red Sox. Wil Myers will occupy Naylor's regular spot in left field.
Naylor went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk Tuesday against the Reds.
Naylor took Sonny Gray deep in the sixth inning to record his seventh home run of the season. He has taken over the majority of playing time in left field over Wil Myers, starting each of the team's last five games. Naylor has hit well in that span, smacking three extra-base hits, driving in three and scoring three runs. He's seen his slash line improve to .253/.322/.442 across 171 plate appearances this season.
Naylor will make his first career start against a left-handed pitcher Sunday, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Naylor will hit second and play left field. The 22-year-old has collected four hits in his last seven at-bats and is slashing .308/.400/.641 with a 1.041 OPS through 15 games -- including 10 starts -- in August. He has a .241 batting average in 29 at-bats against southpaws this season.
Naylor went 3-for-4 with a double and two runs scored Friday night against the Phillies.
Naylor registered his seventh double of the season Friday night, though his team would fall 8-4 in the series opener. The 22-year-old outfielder is slashing .254/.310/.430 with six homers and 23 RBI over 55 games this season.
Naylor went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a losing effort to the Rockies on Sunday.
Starting in left field for the second straight game, Naylor slugged a solo shot to center field off German Marquez in the third inning. The 22-year-old is off to a strong start in August, hitting .280 (7-for-25) with three homers and seven RBI in 10 games.
Naylor hit a pinch-hit, three-run home run in Friday's 7-1 win over the Rockies.
Naylor was called on to pinch hit for reliever Trey Wingenter in the eighth inning and came up with the Padres' biggest hit of the night to put an exclamation mark on their victory. The 22-year-old has mostly featured off the bench this season, hitting .242/.296/.403 with five homers, 22 RBI and 14 runs scored in 124 at-bats.
Naylor went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in a win over Seattle on Tuesday.
Starting for the fourth straight game, Naylor put San Diego up 8-0 with a homer to left field in the eighth inning. The rookie showed some pop in the minors, accumulating 27 long balls in 182 games across two levels between 2018 and 2019. He has now hit four home runs and racked up 19 RBI while hitting .242 in 120 major-league at-bats this season.
Naylor will start in left field and bat sixth Sunday against the Dodgers.
Naylor will stick in the lineup for a third consecutive game, this time in place of Wil Myers after Manuel Margot lost out on starts the previous two nights. Naylor went 1-for-6 between the first two contests and owns a .639 OPS over 123 plate appearances in the majors this season, so he probably has a long way to go before being assured an everyday role.
Naylor was recalled from Triple-A El Paso on Thursday.
Naylor figures to serve as the team's fourth outfielder after Franmil Reyes was traded away to Cleveland in a three-team deal earlier in the week. The 22-year-old outfielder hit .236/.287/.358 with three home runs and a stolen base in a 41-game stint with the Padres earlier in the season.
Naylor was optioned to Triple-A El Paso on Sunday.
The move had been widely reported Saturday, but the club made the official move to make room for Michel Baez and Adrian Morejon on the 25-man roster. Naylor hit .236/.287/.358 across 41 games in his first major-league experience.
Naylor will be optioned prior to Sunday's game against the Cubs, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Naylor has been with the big-league team for nearly two months but hasn't particularly impressed, hitting .238/.289/.362 with three homers in 40 games. As a player whose value comes almost exclusively from his bat, he'll have to hit much better during his next opportunity if he's to stick around. Adrian Morejon will be called up to take his place on the roster.
Naylor went 1-for-1 with a pinch-hit solo home run in a 6-5 loss to the Cubs on Friday.
Although the Padres suffered defeat anyway, starter Eric Lauer avoided the loss thanks to Naylor -- he tied the game with his long ball. Naylor hasn't displayed much power this season, as this was his first homer since June 5. He is batting .238 with three home runs, 16 RBI, 11 runs and one steal in 105 at-bats this season.
Naylor was a late addition to the Padres' lineup Friday against the Cardinals, hitting fifth and manning left field.
Hunter Renfroe (illness) was a late scratch, and the Padres opted to give Naylor the nod over Wil Myers. Naylor has not been playing much and is hitting just .218 with two home runs in 55 at-bats this month.
Naylor will start in right field and bat fifth Saturday against the Pirates.
With Franmil Reyes getting the day off, Naylor will crack the lineup for only the second time in the Padres' last six games. Since being promoted from Triple-A El Paso on May 24, Naylor has managed a lowly .229/.260/.357 slash line across 73 plate appearances. With his production leaving much to be desired and his playing time dwindling, Naylor could be headed back to the minors in the near future.
Naylor went 1-for-4 with an RBI, a run and a stolen base in Friday's 5-4 win over the Nationals.
Naylor drew a spot start in place of Hunter Renfroe in left field and proved valuable during a two-run ninth inning. Naylor knocked a single to score Eric Hosmer, then stole second base before coming around to score the winning run on Austin Hedges' single. Naylor is hitting .244 with two homers and 11 RBI in 13 games since his promotion, and the stolen base was the first of his major-league career.
Naylor went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Saturday's 9-3 loss to the Marlins.
His first career homer gave the Padres an early lead in the second inning. Naylor's seen action in both outfield corners since his promotion, but his .200/.200/.400 slash line and 0:9 BB:K through seven games suggests his stay with San Diego could end up being brief.
Naylor is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Yankees.
The lefty-hitting rookie will take a seat for the series finale in New York with a tough southpaw (James Paxton) on the bump for the Yankees. Through his first five appearances in the big leagues, Naylor has gone 4-for-20 with two doubles, three RBI and eight strikeouts. With the designated-hitter spot no longer available to the Padres when they resume National League play Friday against the Marlins, it's unclear if Naylor will remain with the big club. He doesn't have a clear path to an everyday role and would offer little appeal as a bench option, given his lack of defensive value.
Naylor went 3-for-6 with a double and two RBI in a 19-4 rout of the Blue Jays on Saturday.
After going hitless in his MLB debut, Naylor checked in with his first three major-league hits in the second spot in the order. The 21-year-old had been mashing in Triple-A to earn the callup, so perhaps he can continue to translate his impressive power and excellent plate discipline to the big club and earn regular at-bats from manager Andy Green.
Naylor's contract was officially selected from Triple-A El Paso prior to Friday's game in Toronto.
The Padres have back-to-back three-game series in American League ballparks coming up, first against the Blue Jays then against the Yankees, so it's quite possible Naylor gets deployed as the designated hitter and is sent down next weekend as a corresponding move for Fernando Tatis (hamstring) coming off the injured list. That said, Naylor is clearly ready for big-league pitching, and even if this is a brief cup of coffee, he could be back up for good later this season. The No. 12 overall pick in 2015, Naylor combines impressive raw power with a plus hit tool. The 21-year-old first baseman-turned-outfielder is hitting .299/.378/.538 with 10 home runs in 45 games in the Pacific Coast League. His 24:24 K:BB in 209 plate appearances is particularly impressive, given his age and the fact that this was first tour of Triple-A.
Naylor will be called up by the Padres to debut Friday, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.
The 21-year-old has big raw power and a good hit tool as well. He's hit .299/.378/.538 with 10 homers in 45 games for Triple-A El Paso this season. He hasn't received good reports for his defense in the outfield corners, which affects his fantasy value directly as it could limit his starting opportunities even if he hits well. He's a best fit for first base, but there's been no indication Eric Hosmer's starting role is at risk. The Padres will have back-to-back road series at the Blue Jays and Yankees, so he could see work in at least a handful of games in this seven-game interleague stretch as designated hitter; how long he stays with the big club after that is unknown.
