San Diego Padres Roster Report 2009-05-05

San Diego Padres Roster Report 2009-05-05
The Padres continue to carry eight relief pitchers while going with a four-man bench. On their seven-game road trip to Colorado and Los Angeles, the Padres used an average of three relievers a game.


--LF Scott Hairston says "it has been awhile since I felt better at the plate." Hairston went 3-for-4 Monday and hit a three-run homer against Rockies LHP Jorge De La Rosa. It was the second homer of the season by Hairston against De La Rosa. Hairston is hitting .389 against left-handed pitchers (14-for-36) with three homers, 10 RBIs, an .806 slugging percentage and a .463 on-base percentage.

--3B Kevin Kouzmanoff went 0-for-4 Monday after taking a break Sunday to get away from his slump. Kouzmanoff is in a 5-for-39 slide since April 22 and although he didn't strike out Monday, he has 24 in 97 at-bats.

--RHP Kevin Correia gave up five runs on eight hits in 3 1/3 innings Monday night, although Padres manager Bud Black continued to praise his stuff. "His slider had sharpness to it and his fastball had velocity," said Black. But Correia's ERA is 5.92, and he has issued 16 walks in 24 1/3 innings.

--2B David Eckstein hit in the leadoff slot for the fourth time this season and was 0-for-4, making him 0-for-16 in four games in the slot. When not hitting in the No. 1 slot, Eckstein is batting .316 (24-for-76). He has reached base just once, on a walk, while hitting in the No. 1 spot.

--RHP Cla Meredith served up a grand slam to Chris Iannetta, the first hitter he faced. Seven of the eight runners Meredith has inherited this season have scored (including three last night) and five of the 10 first hitters he's faced have reached base.


RHP Shawn Hill (right elbow inflammation) went on the 15-day disabled list April 25.

RHP Walter Silva (right forearm strain) went on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to April 14. Manager Bud Black said he likely would be out longer than the minimum time.

OF Cliff Floyd (inflamed right knee) went on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to April 5 with a right shoulder strain. He had recovered from the shoulder injury when the knee problem began.

RHP Cha Seung Baek (strained right forearm) went on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to March 30. He threw a bullpen session April 21 and will throw another April 24. He began a rehab assignment with Class A Lake Elsinore on April 28.

INF Everth Cabrera (broken hamate bone in left hand) went on the 60-day disabled list April 20. He had surgery April 21, and he's expected to be out six to eight weeks before beginning an extended rehab assignment.

RHP Mike Adams (right shoulder surgery in October 2008) went on the 15-day disabled list April 2, and he was transferred to the 60-day DL on April 5.

RHP Mark Worrell (Tommy John elbow surgery in March 2009) went on the 15-day disabled list April 2, and he was transferred to the 60-day DL on April 5. He is out for the season.

RHP Mark Prior (right shoulder surgeries in April 2007 and June 2008) was progressing as the Padres broke camp. He suffered a setback in extended spring training in late April, delaying his rehab.
