Here is the “Daily Padres Roundup:”
- Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune illustrated how the injury-plagued Padres have been lucky to have so many versatile players on their roster in 2013. Guys like Alexi Amarista, Pedro Ciriaco, Logan Forsythe, Kyle Blanks, Jesus Guzman, Will Venable, and Chris Denorfia have all made their presences felt during important moments this year.
- Here is the link to Bill Center’s most recent Padres-related chat on the San Diego Union-Tribune website.
- With Clayton Richard on the disabled list, the Friars needed more pitching help. Jamal Collier reported that the team called-up Brad Boxberger and Anthony Bass to replace the veteran left-hander. Boxberger and Bass actually pitched a combined 3.1 innings yesterday of mop-up duty after the Dodgers jumped out to a 5-0 lead.
