    Headshot for Pedro Avila

    In conjunction with this post, Anthony Franco will hold a Padres-specific chat on 10-11-23 at 3:15 pm CDT. Click here to leave a question in advance. The Padres are on the shortlist for the league’s most disappointing team in 2023. They came up shy of the postseason despite a star-studded roster that entered the year…

  • Padres Plan To Reduce Payroll To Around $200MM; Front Office Changes Possible

    Headshot for Xander Bogaerts

    An Opening Day payroll of just under $249MM and some aggressive acquisitions of star players meant that the Padres were fully expecting a championship in 2023, but San Diego has instead posted only a 77-79 record, and the season’s final week begins with the Padres still in mathematical contention for a wild card slot by…

    We've been covering the upcoming free agent class at MLBTR, going through each of the non-pitching positions. But now it’s time to take the mound, beginning with the starters.

  • Yu Darvish Won't Pitch Again This Season

    Headshot for Yu Darvish

    San Diego Padres right-hander Yu Darvish (elbow) has been shut down for the remainder of the 2023 season, according to Dennis Lin of The Athletic. Over 24 starts this year, the 11-year veteran pitched to a 4.56 ERA (4.03 FIP), 1.30 WHIP, and 24.6% strikeout rate with eight wins. However, Darvish suffered an elbow injury at the end of August, and he hasn't progressed quickly enough to return to action before the end of the year. Hopefully, the 37-year-old can put this season behind him and rebound in 2024.
