This weeks Padres Player of the Week goes to Eric Stults. The lefty has put together a GREAT month of August – and in a rotation where we talk so much about injuries – Stults has avoided the DL all year long and last year as well. Over the last two seasons, he has pitched more innings as a Padre than any other pitcher. Don’t look at that record – but I do hope the Padres keep him around next season. I believe a guy like Eric Stults is vital. He gives you innings and most nights at least gives you a chance to win. He is durable and as he piles up experience will be an important clubhouse mentor to prospects like Mat Wisler and Robbie Erlin as they make their way to the major leagues.
