|(9/22/14) Padres reliever Joaquin Benoit, who had been out since Aug. 26 with shoulder discomfort, returned to the mound Sunday against the Giants, striking out two in a perfect ninth inning of an 8-2 victory.
Benoit was the closer before being sidelined by the injury, and the San Diego Union-Tribune reported earlier in the weekend that the Padres would ease him back into that role. Kevin Quackenbush has closed in his absence.

|(9/16/14) Padres clsoer Joaquin Benoit will throw a bullpen session Wednesday and could return to action as early as Friday, U-T San Diego reports.

Joaquin Benoit getting closer to return
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
|(9/14/14) The San Diego Union-Tribune reports that Joaquin Benoit will throw a bullpen session before Sunday's game at the Diamondbacks, and he may only need one more session after that. Just over a month after inheriting the Padres' closer role in late July, Benoit was sidelined by a shoulder injury.
|The Tigers entered spring training a year ago without a set closer, and after some early improvisation and a failed experiment with Jose Valverde, they finally settled on using Joaquin Benoit in the ninth inning. Benoit, who had previously never saved more than six saves in a season, fared well, nailing down 24 saves in 26 chances and finishing with a 2.01 ERA. The 36-year-old appears primed to return to a set-up role, having signed a two-year deal with the Padres this offseason. Though Huston Street will return as the team's closer, it's not inconceivable that Benoit could pitch himself into save situations again. Street is injury-prone and saw declines in his swinging strike and ground ball rates in 2013, and he is also in the final year of his contract, making him a potential midseason trade chip. Benoit will certainly have value in leagues that reward holds, but he could be a good speculative pick for saves in deep leagues.
