  • Padres' Pedro Avila: Strikes out seven in season finale

    Avila did not factor into the decision Sunday, allowing three hits over five scoreless innings in a 2-1 victory over the White Sox. He struck out seven.

    Avila had a fine start to end the season after working as a reliever in his previous two outings. The right-hander ends the campaign with a 3.22 ERA and 1.35 WHIP with 54 strikeouts across 50.1 innings. Notably, his 1.46 ERA and 1.01 WHIP in 24.2 innings as a reliever may lead to more chances in that role in 2024.

  • Padres' Rich Hill: Secures extra-inning win

    Hill (8-14) picked up the win in Sunday's 2-1 extra-inning game against the White Sox. He allowed one run on two hits while striking out three over two innings.

    This was Hill's second appearance out of the bullpen since going unclaimed on waivers Sept. 14, and his first win since he was starting for the Pirates in June. The southpaw wrapped his season with a 5.41 ERA and 1.52 WHIP across 146.1 innings with 129 strikeouts. The 43-year-old Hill enters free agency with uncertainty regarding his future; however, his 3.38 ERA in a limited sample of 10 innings as a reliever may be enticing enough to teams looking to bolster their bullpen with a multi-inning arm.

  • Padres' Ji-Man Choi: On bench for finale

    Choi is out of the lineup for Sunday's game versus the White Sox.

    Choi has a .377 OPS in 37 plate appearances since being acquired by the Padres and will hit the bench for the final game of the season. He's in his final year of arbitration eligibility and will be a free agent this winter.

  • Padres' Matthew Batten: Out of Sunday's lineup

    Batten is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the White Sox.

    Batten will sit for the season finale after a run of 17 straight starts, during which he posted a .626 OPS. He's played in 42 games this season and has a .254/.348/.356 slash line with two homers, 11 RBI and 19 runs.

  • Padres' Manny Machado: Sitting again Sunday

    Machado is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the White Sox.

    Machado will sit for the second straight game to close out the season for San Diego. If the 31-year-old doesn't make an appearance off the bench, he'll close the 2023 campaign with a .258/.319/.462 slash line, 30 homers, 91 RBI and 75 runs in 138 contests.

  • Padres' Jurickson Profar: Big night in Chicago

    Profar went 2-for-5 with a double, four RBI and one run scored in Saturday's 6-1 win over the White Sox.

    The 30-year-old got the best of Mike Clevinger on Saturday, lacing a bases-clearing double in the first frame and adding an RBI single in the second, which chased the White Sox starter from the game. In 13 games since Profar rejoined the Padres on Sept. 8, he has gone 11-for-39 (.282) with two doubles, one home run, six RBI and four runs. Between Colorado and San Diego, the veteran outfielder has posted a season-long slash line of .240/.320/.368 with 27 doubles, nine home runs, 45 RBI, 55 runs and one steal through 124 games (515 plate appearances).

  • Padres' Ha-Seong Kim: Goes 4-for-5 with two thefts

    Kim went 4-for-5 with a double, one run scored and two steals in Saturday's win over the White Sox.

    Kim snapped an 0-for-17 skid in a big way Saturday, collecting three singles and a double while stealing third base twice. The 27-year-old breakout player has slowed down at the plate in September, hitting just .184 with three doubles, zero home runs, seven RBI, eight runs and nine steals across 99 plate appearances. Despite his relatively lethargic finish, the third-year infielder took a huge step forward in the 2023 campaign, posting a .262/.354/.401 season-long slash line and collecting 140 hits, 75 walks, 17 home runs, 84 runs and 38 stolen bases over 151 games (621 plate appearances) -- all career highs.

  • Padres' Michael Wacha: Seven scoreless in 14th win

    Wacha (14-4) earned the win Saturday, allowing three hits and one walk over seven scoreless innings against the White Sox. He struck out seven.

    The 32-year-old scattered three singles and needed just 87 pitches to complete seven scoreless innings en route to his 14th victory of the campaign. Outside of a recent seven-run start against the Dodgers, Wacha compiled a 6-1 record with a 2.82 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 48:15 K:BB across 44.2 innings after returning from a shoulder injury Aug. 15. Building upon a resurgent 2022 season for the Red Sox, the right-hander's first year in San Diego concludes with a 3.22 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 124:43 K:BB across 134.1 innings with his highest win total since Wacha went 17-7 in 2015.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Moved to 60-day IL

    The Padres transferred Musgrove (shoulder) to the 60-day injured list Saturday.

    Musgrove has been on the injured list since early August due to inflammation in his right shoulder. He was able to resume throwing last Friday, but with the Padres officially eliminated from playoff contention, his focus has shifted to getting ready for 2024. Musgrove's spot on the 40-man roster will be filled by Chandler Seagle, who was selected from Triple-A El Paso on Saturday.

  • Padres' Chandler Seagle: Selected to majors

    The Padres selected Seagle's contract from Triple-A El Paso on Saturday.

    Seagle began the season with Double-A San Antonio before finishing the minor-league season in Triple-A, and he'll now give the Padres depth behind the plate, with Luis Campusano (ankle) headed for the IL. Seagle slashed .209/.261/.296 across 260 total plate appearances in the minors and is unlikely to see much action behind Brett Sullivan during the Padres' final two games. Joe Musgrove (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day IL to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for Seagle.

  • Padres' Luis Campusano: Placed on IL

    The Padres placed Campusano on the 10-day injured list Saturday with a right ankle sprain.

    Campusano's injury could help explain why he's missed each of the Padres' last four games, and it will officially keep him out for the final two. The 25-year-old backstop put up a .319/.356/.491 slash line through 174 plate appearances in 2023, and he projects as San Diego's primary catcher for 2024.

  • Padres' Manny Machado: Idle Saturday

    Machado isn't in the Padres' lineup Saturday against the White Sox.

    Despite going 11-for-22 with two homers and seven RBI over his last five games, Machado will sit down for the penultimate game of the season Saturday. Matthew Batten will start at third base, and Juan Soto will operate as the DH while Jurickson Profar starts in left field.

  • Padres' Josh Hader: Earns 33rd save

    Hader picked up the save in Friday's 3-2 victory over the White Sox. He allowed one run on one hit and one walk over one inning without recording a strikeout.

    It was far from a clean outing for Hader, who allowed a solo homer to Carlos Perez to lead off the inning, then gave up a walk and hit a batter prior to inducing Yoan Moncada to ground into a game-ending double play. Friday's appearance marks only the sixth time in 60 appearances that Hader has allowed an earned run this season, leading to a 1.30 ERA, 1.12 ERA and 84 strikeouts over 55.1 innings.

  • Padres' Nick Martinez: Fans eight in win

    Martinez (6-4) earned the win Friday, allowing two hits and two walks over five scoreless innings against the White Sox. He struck out eight.

    It was his longest outing since April 19, and the right-hander retired 11 straight batters at one point to help keep the White Sox at bay. The versatile Martinez contributed 110.1 quality innings for the Padres this season, starting nine of his 63 appearances while compiling six wins, 15 holds and one save with a 3.43 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 106 strikeouts.

  • Padres' Ji-Man Choi: Sitting Friday

    Choi isn't in the Padres' lineup Friday against the White Sox.

    Choi still has yet to record a hit through 14 games with the Padres, and his offensive struggles will keep him out of the lineup Friday. Garrett Cooper will start at first base and bat sixth.
