  • Brandon Dixon: Ends career

    Dixon announced his retirement on X on Thursday.

    Dixon was most recently in the majors in 2023, when he earned 86 plate appearances with the Padres. He holds a career .224/.266/.397 line across 658 big-league plate appearances and also suited up for the Reds and Tigers.

  • Padres' Brandon Dixon: Removed from 40-man roster

    Dixon cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A El Paso on Saturday.

    Dixon was optioned to Triple-A in mid-July and has now lost his place on San Diego's 40-man roster after the organization's additions at the trade deadline. The 31-year-old has made 33 appearances with the Friars this year and has posted a .573 OPS in 79 at-bats.

  • Padres' Brandon Dixon: Sent to Triple-A

    The Padres optioned Dixon to Triple-A El Paso on Tuesday.

    Dixon has slashed just .203/.244/.329 in 33 major-league games (86 plate appearances) this season. Luis Campusano (thumb) is coming off the 60-day injured list and the Padres have also called up position players Taylor Kohlwey and Alfonso Rivas ahead of Tuesday night's series opener in Toronto.

  • Padres' Brandon Dixon: Drawing start at DH

    Dixon is starting at designated hitter and batting eighth Friday in Philadelphia.

    Left-hander Cristopher Sanchez is getting the start for the Phillies, so the Padres will put Dixon's right-handed bat at DH. The 31-year-old has just a .437 OPS versus lefties this season in the majors but has posted an .876 OPS against southpaws in 2023 at Triple-A El Paso.

  • Padres' Brandon Dixon: Knocks second homer

    Dixon went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 9-6 win over the Rockies.

    Dixon padded the Padres' lead in the seventh inning. The 31-year-old remains confined to a part-time role, leading to inconsistent playing time. He's struck out 10 times while going just 4-for-26 (.154) over his last 10 contests. For the season, he owns a .212/.259/.365 slash line with two homers, five RBI, six runs scored and a stolen base through 58 plate appearances.

  • Padres' Brandon Dixon: Productive in win

    Dixon went 2-for-4 with a double, two RBI and a run scored in Thursday's 10-1 victory over Miami.

    Dixon has swung the bat well of late, going 7-for-19 (.368) with a 1.066 OPS over his last seven games. While the 31-year-old isn't likely to play enough to have value in shallower fantasy formats, he's been solid off the bench for the Padres, slashing .243/.310/.378 with a home run and three RBI through 42 plate appearances.

  • Padres' Brandon Dixon: Back to bench Wednesday

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

    Dixon will retreat to the bench after he had manned first base in three of the Padres' last four games, with all of his starts coming against left-handed pitching. The 31-year-old looks like he could handle a short-side platoon role for the Padres while Manny Machado (hand) is on the 10-day injured list.

  • Padres' Brandon Dixon: Swats first homer since 2019

    Dixon went 1-for-2 with a solo home run Tuesday in a 7-4 win over Washington.

    Dixon got the start at first base and swatted a 403-foot solo homer to center field in the fourth inning. It was his first long ball in eight games this season and his first major-league home run since he played with Detroit in 2019. Dixon went deep 15 times that year but spent most of the following two seasons in Japan before logging most of his time last year in San Diego's minor-league system. He's smacked 30 homers over his last 76 contests between Double-A and Triple A across two seasons, but his playing time in the majors has been limited and doesn't figure to increase significantly given the Padres' loaded roster.

  • Padres' Brandon Dixon: Recalled from El Paso

    San Diego recalled Dixon from Triple-A El Paso on Friday, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Dixon is hitting seventh and playing first base against the Red Sox on Friday. The veteran infielder/outfielder has been up and down with the club for the majority of the 2023 campaign, and it appears he'll be taking the place of Manny Machado (hand) on the roster.

  • Padres' Brandon Dixon: Returns to Triple-A

    The Padres optioned Dixon to Triple-A El Paso on Monday.

    Dixon was up with the Padres for the weekend as the big club's 27th man for its two-game series with the Giants in Mexico City. He didn't appear in either contest and should now settle back into a near-everyday role with El Paso during Pacific Coast League play.

  • Padres' Brandon Dixon: Up as 27th man

    Dixon was recalled Saturday to serve as the 27th man for the two-game series in Mexico City against the Giants.

    Dixon, who can play all four corner spots, will be up as a depth option for these two games at altitude in Mexico. The 31-year-old is slashing .364/.463/.773 with five home runs and three steals in 12 games in the Pacific Coast League.

  • Padres' Brandon Dixon: Optioned to Triple-A

    Dixon was optioned to Triple-A El Paso on Thursday.

    With Fernando Tatis returning from suspension Thursday, Dixon has now been optioned twice in the last four days. The 31-year-old utility man is slashing .300/.464/.600 in 28 minor-league plate appearances, and he could bounce around between levels throughout the season.

  • Padres' Brandon Dixon: Recalled from El Paso

    Dixon was recalled from Triple-A El Paso by the Padres on Monday.

    Dixon is recalled just a day after being sent down to Triple-A El Paso to replace Luis Campusano after Campusano was placed on the injured list with a thumb sprain. Dixon is starting in right against Atlanta on Monday, but his stay in the majors could be short with Fernando Tatis coming off the suspended list Thursday.

  • Padres' Brandon Dixon: Sent to Triple-A

    Dixon was optioned to Triple-A El Paso on Sunday.

    The 31-year-old was called up by San Diego last weekend and went 1-for-10 with a run and eight strikeouts in four games. Catcher Brett Sullivan was promoted in a corresponding move, as Luis Campusano (thumb) is banged up.

  • Padres' Brandon Dixon: Starting in right field Tuesday

    Dixon is starting in right field and batting ninth Tuesday against the Mets.

    Dixon was called up from Triple-A El Paso on Sunday and will make his first major-league appearance of the season Tuesday versus the Mets and left-handed starter David Peterson. The 31-year-old is a versatile defender but carries a rough .228/.269/.407 career big-league batting line.

  • Padres' Brandon Dixon: Gets call to majors

    The Padres recalled Dixon from Triple-A El Paso on Sunday.

    He'll join the big-league roster as a replacement for outfielder David Dahl, who was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right quadriceps strain. Like Dahl, Dixon is capable of playing the corner outfield, but the 31-year-old also has prior experience at three infield spots (first base, third base and second base).

  • Padres' Brandon Dixon: Optioned to Triple-A

    Dixon was optioned to Triple-A El Paso on Sunday.

    Dixon's contract was selected by the Padres late in the 2022 campaign, but he'll begin this season in the minors. He slashed .371/.447/.866 with 13 homers, 32 RBI, 24 runs and three stolen bases over 25 games at the Triple-A level last year, and he'll be a candidate to be called up if the Padres need additional depth at some point this year.

  • Padres' Brandon Dixon: Scratched due to illness

    Dixon has been scratched from the lineup for Wednesday's Cactus League game against the Reds due to an illness.

    He was scheduled to start at third base and hit sixth, but the Padres will now turn to Matthew Batten to man the hot corner. Dixon should be considered day-to-day moving forward.

  • Padres' Brandon Dixon: Contract selected by San Diego

    Dixon had his contract selected by the Padres on Tuesday.

    Dixon joined the Friars on a minor-league deal in March and will join the big-league club with nine games left in the regular season. The 30-year-old had a 1.313 OPS with 13 home runs in 25 games for Triple-A El Paso and is looking to see big-league action for the first time since 2020 with Detroit.

  • Brandon Dixon: Bound for Japan

    Dixon was released by the Tigers on Thursday in order for him to head to Japan.

    The Tigers did not announce which NPB club Dixon will be signing with. Dixon fits the typical profile of a player heading overseas, as he's a 28-year-old with a respectable 197 big-league games under his belt but a generally unimpressive showing in those games. He's hit 20 career homers at the highest level and owns a .228/.271/.410 slash line.
