Here is the “Daily Roundup,” Friars fans:
- The Padres shifted some parts in their bullpen yesterday when they called up Colt Hynes from Triple-A Tucson. San Diego optioned Brach Brach back to Triple-A to make room for Hynes according to team beat writer Corey Brock via Twitter.
- The Padres had two players who participated in the “All-Star Futures Game” at Citi Field yesterday. Austin Hedges was the catcher for the ” United States” team, and Reymond Fuentes and Yeison Asencio were outfielders for the “World” team. Hedges drew some rave reviews from ESPN.com’s David Schoenfield for his skill-set as well.
- Andy Masur tweeted some information about what the Padres’ starting rotation will look like after the All-Star break. According to Bud Black (via Masur), Jason Marquis will start against the St. Louis Cardinals in San Diego’s first post-break game. Marquis will be followed by Edinson Volquez and Eric Stults in games two and three of the series.
