  • Padres' Dylan Cease: Tosses no-hitter against Washington

    Cease (10-8) pitched a no-hitter, striking out nine batters and walking three without giving up a run, to earn the win against the Nationals on Thursday.

    The no-hitter was the first of Cease's career, though he came within one out of accomplishing the feat in September of 2022 before current teammate Luis Arraez broke up the bid. The right-hander needed 114 pitches to finish off the historic effort Thursday, and he was nearly pulled after seven frames before talking manager Mike Shildt into remaining in the contest, per Bob Nightengale of USA Today. Remarkably, this was Cease's sixth outing of at least six frames and one or zero hits this season, and he's met those marks in each of his past three starts, allowing a combined two hits and no runs while posting a 30:7 K:BB over 22.0 frames during that span. Thursday's no-hitter was the second in Padres history; the other was tossed by Joe Musgrove in April of 2021.

  • Padres' David Peralta: Out against lefty

    Peralta is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Nationals.

    Peralta will join fellow left-handed batter Luis Arraez on the bench as the Padres stock up on a couple of extra right-handed bats to counter Nationals southpaw Patrick Corbin. Bryce Johnson will make another start in right field in Peralta's stead.

  • Padres' Luis Arraez: Getting rest Thursday

    Arraez is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Nationals.

    The Padres are closing out their series in Washington with a day game after a night game, and the Nationals are bringing a lefty (Patrick Corbin) to the hill, so San Diego manager Mike Shildt likely decided that it was an opportune time to give the lefty-hitting Arraez a breather. Unless he's used off the bench, Arraez will put his six-game hitting streak on hold and will cede the designated-hitter spot to Manny Machado on Thursday.

  • Padres' Kyle Higashioka: Receives breather Thursday

    Higashioka is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Nationals.

    The Padres and Nationals are wrapping up their series with a day game, so Higashioka will get a breather after he caught nine innings while going 3-for-5 with a home run, a double and three RBI in Wednesday night's 12-3 win. Luis Campusano will step in for Higashioka behind the plate.

  • Padres' Xander Bogaerts: Perfect at plate Wednesday

    Bogaerts went 4-for-4 with a walk and two runs scored in Wednesday's 12-3 win over the Nationals.

    Bogaerts kept his bat hot and had no trouble keeping the line moving in the blowout win. He's recorded six multi-hit efforts in seven games since he returned from a fractured left shoulder, going 14-for-29 (.483) in that span, though all of those hits have been singles. The infielder is slashing .255/.296/.338 with four home runs, 15 RBI, 26 runs scored and five stolen bases over 54 contests this season, but it appears fantasy managers will have to be patient in waiting for his power to return.

  • Padres' Jackson Merrill: Racks up four hits in win

    Merrill went 4-for-5 with a triple, a double and three runs scored in Wednesday's 12-3 win over the Nationals.

    Merrill had two chances to swing for the fences to complete a cycle, but he struck out and singled in those at-bats. It was still a fantastic game for the rookie, who has three multi-hit efforts over his last four games. He's slashing .284/.316/.443 with 12 home runs, 49 RBI, 45 runs scored, 10 stolen bases, 14 doubles and three triples over his first 100 major-league contests.

  • Padres' Jurickson Profar: Homers in consecutive games

    Profar went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run and an additional run scored in Wednesday's 12-3 win over the Nationals.

    Profar has gotten back on track after a brief cold spell at the plate around the All-Star break, in which he went 2-for-21 over a five-game span. He's 5-for-14 with two homers and three RBI over his last three contests. The outfielder is up to 16 long balls, 62 RBI, 55 runs scored, five stolen bases and a .300/.388/.478 slash line through 102 games this season.

  • Padres' Kyle Higashioka: Smacks homer in three-hit effort

    Higashioka went 3-for-5 with a two-run home run and an RBI double in Wednesday's 12-3 win over the Nationals.

    Higashioka had gone just 2-for-16 over his previous five contests before getting in on the heavy-hitting fun the Padres' offense enjoyed in this game. The catcher has homered 12 times this season, with six of them coming over his last 14 games. He's up to a .226/.269/.540 slash line with 32 RBI, 17 runs scored, five doubles, one triple and no stolen bases across 145 plate appearances. Higashioka's recent success in the power department has helped him see a majority of the starts at catcher in July, relegating Luis Campusano to the backup role.

  • Padres' Matt Waldron: Earns sixth win

    Waldron (6-9) allowed three runs on four hits and two walks while striking out four over six innings to earn the win Wednesday over the Nationals.

    Waldron turned in his eighth quality start in 10 outings since the start of June, and the Padres' offense offered plenty of support to back him up. The right-hander snapped a five-start winless stretch. He's maintained a 3.64 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 103:33 K:BB through 118.2 innings over 21 starts this season. Waldron's next appearance is projected to be at home versus the Dodgers.

  • Padres' David Peralta: Another day off against lefty

    Peralta is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Nationals.

    The lefty-hitting Peralta will remain on the bench for a second straight game while the Nationals bring another left-hander (Mitchell Parker) to the hill. Platoon mate Bryce Johnson will pick up the start in right field in Peralta's stead.

  • Padres' Jurickson Profar: Swats 15th homer

    Profar went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 4-0 win over the Nationals.

    The Padres broke open a scoreless tie in the fifth inning when Luis Arraez and Profar went back-to-back off DJ Herz. Profar's blast was his fourth in July and 15th of the year, and he's up to 60 RBI -- the third time in his career he's reached that mark. The 31-year-old has slowed down overall this month, however, slashing .220/.281/.441 in 65 plate appearances.

  • Padres' Randy Vasquez: Blanks Nats for third win

    Vasquez (3-5) picked up the win Tuesday, scattering four hits over six scoreless innings in a 4-0 win over the Nationals. He struck out one without walking a batter.

    Washington managed to get a runner to third base in the third inning on a leadoff double and sacrifice bunt, but that was as close as the home squad got to scoring. Vasquez fired an efficient 68 pitches (47 strikes) en route to his fourth quality start of the season, and he's allowed two runs or fewer in five straight trips to the mound, posting a 1.71 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 16:6 K:BB through 26.1 innings over that stretch. The right-hander lines up to make his next start on the road this weekend in Baltimore.

  • Padres' David Peralta: Idle against lefty

    Peralta is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Nationals.

    With southpaw DJ Herz on the mound for Washington, the lefty-hitting Peralta will head to the bench. Jurickson Profar, Jackson Merrill and Bryce Johnson fill the outfield from left to right.

  • Padres' Glenn Otto: On Triple-A IL

    Triple-A El Paso placed Otto on its 7-day injured list Sunday with an unspecified injury.

    Otto remains on the Padres' 40-man roster and began the season on the club's 15-day injured list while recovering from a right teres major strain. After Otto made five rehab appearances between El Paso and the rookie-level Arizona Complex League, the Padres activated him from the IL and optioned him to the Triple-A club. Since then, Otto had made six appearances for El Paso and struck out 11 over 8.2 innings while giving up three earned runs on eight hits and six walks, but he's now been shut down again with an injury. It's unclear whether he's dealing with a setback related to the previous shoulder issue or if he's tending to a new concern.
