Padres' Edward Olivares: Continues to ride bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olivares remains out of the lineup Wednesday against the Dodgers.

Olivares had seen a fair amount of playing time in right field to begin the year, but he'll be on the bench for a fourth consecutive game Wednesday. Wil Myers will shift to right field with Greg Garcia starting as the designated hitter and batting seventh.

Padres' Edward Olivares: Sits for third straight
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olivares remains on the bench Tuesday against the Dodgers.

Olivares had started three times in a span of four games last week but has now been on the bench for three straight. He's gone just 4-for-17 at the plate this season.

Padres' Edward Olivares: Sitting again Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olivares isn't in the lineup Monday against the Dodgers.

Olivares has seen a fair share of playing time in right field to begin the season, but he'll play a bench role for the third time in the past four games. Wil Myers will start in right field with Abraham Almonte serving as the designated hitter and batting seventh.

Padres' Edward Olivares: Playing time picks up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olivares is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rockies.

Rather than leaning on the struggling Josh Naylor as its primary designated hitter, San Diego has deployed a rotation of players at that spot, including outfielders Wil Myers and Tommy Pham. That's allowed Olivares to start three of the past four games in the outfield, but he'll be relegated to the bench in the series finale in Colorado since an infielder (Manny Machado) is serving as the DH on Sunday.

Padres' Edward Olivares: Reaches base three times
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olivares went 2-for-3 with a walk, an RBI and a run scored Wednesday in the Padres' 7-6 loss to the Giants.

With Tommy Pham moving to designated hitter and Josh Naylor getting the day off, Olivares was able to pick up his third start of the season and took advantage. The rookie is off to a 4-for-9 start to his big-league career and could be in store for more regular action if the Padres elect to phase out Naylor, who has slashed a lackluster .244/.310/.395 (86 wRC+) over his 284 MLB plate appearances to date.

Padres' Edward Olivares: Doubles in MLB debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olivares went 1-for-3 with a walk and a double in the Padres' 5-1 win over the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

The 24-year-old played right field and hit seventh for the Padres in his big-league debut. He was picked off and caught stealing second base in the sixth inning. Olivares was successful on 35 of 45 attempts at Double-A Amarillo last season and had a .283/.349/.453 line to go with those 35 steals, so he would seem to have some upside if Wil Myers ends up DH'ing more than expected.

Padres' Edward Olivares: Set for debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olivares will make his MLB debut Saturday against the Diamondbacks, batting seventh and playing right field.

Olivares sat against lefty Madison Bumgarner on Friday but will be in the lineup against another lefty, Robbie Ray, in this one, pushing Wil Myers to designated hitter and Ty France to the bench. Olivares has yet to play a game above the Double-A level but evidently impressed enough in camp to earn at least a part-time role.

Padres' Edward Olivares: Makes cut for 30-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olivares is included on the Padres' Opening Day roster.

Olivares had been trending toward a roster spot after strong performances in both spring training and summer camp, and San Diego rewarded his impressive play by including him on the active roster. The 24-year-old could get a fair amount of playing time this season, especially if the team uses him in a semi-platoon with Trent Grisham.

Padres' Edward Olivares: Trending toward roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olivares could start one of the Padres' first two games of the year when they face lefty starters Madison Bumgarner and Robbie Ray, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

Cassavell's prediction suggests Olivares is a strong candidate to open the year on the 30-man roster. The righty-hitting outfielder would be spelling lefty-hitting Trent Grisham in center field if he did start one of those first two games. Olivares actually had reverse platoon splits last year in the minors, so he could eventually carve out a larger role if players ahead of him on the depth chart struggle or get injured.

Padres' Edward Olivares: In running for roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olivares has opened eyes at summer camp and could make a push for the Padres' 30-man Opening Day roster, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

Olivares' bid to break camp with the big club began in spring training, when he slashed .389/.421/.722 with a home run in 18 at-bats before being optioned to minor-league camp in early March. The extended layoff has not dampened his momentum as manager Jayce Tingler indicated that he is making "maybe even a better impression" so far in summer camp. A spot on the active roster remains tenuous for the 24-year-old, though his combination of speed and versatility could prove too enticing for the Padres to pass up if Olivares continues to thrive.

Padres' Edward Olivares: Optioned to minor-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olivares was sent to minor-league camp Sunday, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Olivares enjoyed a strong spring with the big-league club, batting .389 with one home run in 18 at-bats. However, the Padres have a number of more experienced options to play outfield, so Olivares will return to the minors for more seasoning. The 24-year-old is likely to open at the Triple-A level after hitting .283 with 18 homers and 77 RBI with Double-A Amarillo last season.

Padres' Edward Olivares: Thriving in Cactus League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olivares is hitting .667 with a home run and three RBI in seven Cactus League games.

The soon-to-be 24-year-old has collected six hits in nine at-bats, three of which have gone for extra bases. That makes for a cool 2.033 OPS. Olivares hit .283 with 18 home runs and 35 stolen bases in Double-A last season and could make his major-league debut in 2020.

Padres' Edward Olivares: Still raking in Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olivares went 2-for-4 with a run scored for Double-A Amarillo on Monday.

Olivares is on a tear at the dish, hitting .341 with 21 RBI since June 1. He's been mashing all season in the Texas League, and with his slash line currently sitting at a career-best .290/.358/.468 with 12 homers and 53 RBI over 310 at-bats to go along with 22 stolen bases, it seems like only a matter of time before the 23-year-old gets a shot with Triple-A El Paso.

Padres' Edward Olivares: Three-homer day in Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olivares went 3-for-5 with three home runs and five RBI for Double-A Amarillo on Sunday, Bill Center of Padres.com reports.

Olivares has been tearing up Double-A pitching as he's now leading the Texas League with eight long balls through 108 at-bats. He's sporting a .296/.361/.593 slash line in addition to the eight homers, so he'll make a strong case to move up a level if he keeps putting up big numbers.

Padres' Edward Olivares: Optioned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olivares was optioned to the minors Friday, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Olivares spent the first part of the spring in big-league camp after he was added to the 40-man roster in November. He's unlikely to make his big-league debut this season as he's yet to play above High-A.

Padres' Edward Olivares: Contract selected by Padres
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olivares' contract was purchased by San Diego on Tuesday.

Olivares was added to the 40-man roster along with three other minor-league prospects ahead of the Rule 5 draft. The 22-year-old outfielder spent the entire 2018 season with High-A Lake Elsinore and probably did enough to start next year at Double-A Amarillo.

January 6, 2018 05:00 PM
Padres' Edward Olivares: Sent to San Diego
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olivares was traded to the Padres along with Jared Carkuff in exchange for Yangervis Solarte on Saturday, Dennis Lin of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Olivares spent most of the 2017 campaign with Low-A Lansing, hitting a respectable .277/.330/.500 with 17 homers in 101 games for the Lugnuts before earning a promotion to High-A Dunedin. He struggled to a .221/.312/.265 line in 19 games at High-A, so look for him to return there to begin 2018.
