Padres' Daniel Camarena: Re-ups with San Diego
The Padres re-signed Camarena on a minor-league contract Monday.
San Diego outrighted the lefty pitcher off its 40-man roster in October, but the Padres were pleased enough with the 29-year-old's work between two levels to keep him around in the organization. He had the opportunity to make his MLB debut in 2021, appearing in six games while giving up 10 earned runs on 16 hits and three walks in 9.1 innings. Camarena will likely join the big club for spring training, but he's expected to open the 2022 campaign with Triple-A El Paso.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Daniel Camarena: Outrighted off 40-man roster
Camarena cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A El Paso on Friday.

Camarena threw two innings and took the loss in Wednesday's 16-inning marathon against the Dodgers.

Padres' Daniel Camarena: Stuck with loss Wednesday
Camarena (0-1) took the loss Wednesday against the Dodgers after allowing four runs (two earned) on five hits and a walk while managing just one strikeout over two innings.
Camarena entered Wednesday's wild affair in the 15th inning as the eighth reliever the Padres called upon from the bullpen. The 28-year-old surrendered two runs on three base hits but was afforded a second chance after Fernando Tatis tied the game up in the bottom half with a two-run homer. The Dodgers were able to get to him again the following frame, this time off a two-run blast from the bat of AJ Pollock. Camarena has appeared in back-to-back games since being recalled Tuesday and has given up six runs (four earned) on eight hits over 3.1 innings. He's a prime candidate to be demoted given the Padres are likely to want a fresh arm or two following the marathon game.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Daniel Camarena: Rejoins Padres
The Padres recalled Camarena from Triple-A El Paso on Tuesday, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
The lefty has appeared in three games this season, allowing five runs in 5.2 innings of relief. The Padres face Max Scherzer on Thursday, so perhaps Camarena will be called upon for a pinch-hit appearance in the series finale. Miguel Diaz was optioned to Triple-A in a corresponding move....

Padres' Daniel Camarena: Optioned to Triple-A

Padres' Daniel Camarena: Shines with bat in relief outing
Camarena pitched two innings against Washington on Thursday, allowing two runs on two hits while striking out two. He also hit a grand slam in his lone plate appearance.
Starter Yu Darvish uncharacteristically struggled and was pulled after three innings due to back/hip tightness, giving Camarena an opportunity to pitch with San Diego down by six runs. The deficit grew to eight after Camarena allowed a two-run homer to Trea Turner in the fourth inning, but the reliever made up for the mistake by clubbing a grand slam off Max Scherzer in the bottom of the frame. According to the Padres' official Twitter account, Camarena became the second pitcher in major-league history -- and the first since 1898 -- to smack a grand slam for his first big-league hit. The big moment probably won't impact Camarena's role in the bullpen or long-term place on the club, but it was the biggest hit in what turned into an epic Padres comeback.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Daniel Camarena: Rejoins Friars
Camarena was recalled from Triple-A El Paso on Thursday.
The left-hander will rejoin the Padres on Thursday after spending the past couple weeks in the minors. Camarena gave up three runs over 2.2 innings during his lone big-league appearance this season, and he should fill a low-leverage role during his time with the team.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Daniel Camarena: Sent down to Triple-A
The Padres optioned Camarena to Triple-A El Paso on Sunday, MLB.com reports.
Camarena was one of five relievers the Padres used to cover nine innings in Saturday's 7-5 win over the Reds. The 28-year-old lefty worked 2.2 frames in his big-league debut, giving up three runs on four hits and a walk. Since Camarena was unlikely to be available for at least a couple of days after tossing 52 pitches Saturday, the Padres decided to swap him off the active roster for a fresh arm in Neil Ramirez, who was called up from El Paso in a corresponding move....

Padres' Daniel Camarena: Unsteady in big-league debut
Camarena pitched 2.2 innings in relief against the Reds on Saturday, allowing three runs on four hits and one walk while striking out three. He did not factor in the decision.
The left-hander was called up Saturday and asked to eat up some innings in what amounted to a bullpen game. Camarena got through the third and fourth frames without damage, but he surrendered three singles in the fifth, and each of those batters eventually came around to score (though two crossed the plate after Camarena's departure). It's unclear how long Camarena will stay up with the big club -- he's worked exclusively as a starter at the Triple-A level this season, posting a 3.00 ERA and 24:11 K:BB across 39 innings....

Padres' Daniel Camarena: Called up Saturday
The Padres selected Camarena's contract from Triple-A El Paso on Saturday.
The move didn't occur Friday contrary to expectations, but Camarena will now officially join the Padres' 26-man roster. Though his role for the big-league pitching staff is not yet clear, the southpaw has been successful as a Triple-A starter this season and could prove equally useful as a spot starter or long reliever....

Padres' Daniel Camarena: Remains on taxi squad
Camarena will remain on the Padres' taxi squad for now, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.

Camarena has put together a strong season with Triple-A El Paso to this point, posting a 3.00 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 24:11 K:BB across eight starts (39 innings). He's now set for his first stint in the big leagues, though it's unclear how the Padres plan on utilizing the left-hander at this point. Nonetheless, he should be able to provide length either as a starter or long reliever.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Daniel Camarena: Added to taxi squad
Camarena is traveling with the Padres as part of their taxi squad on their current road trip, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Camarena joined the Padres on July 19 after the Yankees released him last August. The southpaw has been a starter throughout most of his professional career, so his addition to the three-man squad gives the Padres a left-handed hurler who can fill in as either a starter or long reliever. Camarena won't be able to participate in games unless a member of the current 30-man roster goes down to injury or tests positive for COVID-19.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Daniel Camarena: Joins Padres
Camarena signed with the Padres on Sunday and was added to the team's 60-player pool.

Yankees' Daniel Camarena: Called up by Yankees
Camarena was called up by the Yankees on Saturday, Coley Harvey of ESPN.com reports.
Camarena hasn't been particularly effective as a starter at Triple-A Scranton Wilkes-Barre this season, posting a 6.00 ERA and 1.41 WHIP while striking out 56 across 63 innings. However, the Yankees are in need of bullpen depth to close out action prior to the All-Star break, and Camarena gives them an extra southpaw to utilize. If he makes an appearance, it will be his major-league debut.... See More ... See Less
