Here is the “Daily Roundup,” Friars fans:
- The Padres were forced to make a number of organizational moves after Yasmani Grandal went down with his knee injury against Washington. Team beat writer Corey Brock shared what occurred within San Diego’s organization when they scrambled to move players throughout their minor league levels to make up for the loss of their starting catcher.
- Ken Rosenthal of FoxSports discussed the teams he believed to be on the “buy-sell bubble.” One of those teams is the Padres, and Rosenthal said that the once-eager to buy franchise could be willing to sell now that they are in the middle of a horrendous losing streak.
- The Padres sent starter Robbie Erlin down to Triple-A and recalled reliever Brad Brach on Monday. Due to the fact that Erlin was optioned to Tucson, the team needs a starter for Friday. Jeff Sanders of the San Diego Union-Tribune listed Tim Stauffer, Tyson Ross, Burch Smith, and Anthony Bass as possible options.
- Bill Center of the San Diego Union-Tribune highlighted the Padres’ plunge into last place over the last few weeks.
- Center also highlighted how well that minor league outfielder Reymond Fuentes has played at the Double-A level in 2013. Fuentes, one of the players the Padres received for Adrian Gonzalez in the winter of 2010, was a Texas League All-Star this year.
