Padres' Odrisamer Despaigne reaches rare franchise milestone


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2015) On Thursday, Padres pitcher Odrisamer Despaigne became only the fifth player in franchise history to appear as a starter and a relief pitcher in the same series since 1990, per MLB.com. 

Despaigne surrendered only two runs on six hits and two walks with five strikeouts over 6 2/3 innings in San Diego's series opener against Colorado at Coors Field. He pitched one-third of an inning on Thursday against the Rockies, lowering his ERA to 1.45 on the season.

With Ian Kennedy set to rejoin the rotation on Saturday, manager Bud Black reassigned Despaigne back to the bullpen, despite a pair of solid outings as a starter.


Kennedy to start Saturday; Despaigne out of Padres' rotation


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2015) It's official. Bud Black has announced that Padres right-hander Ian Kennedy is set to start Saturday against the Dodgers, per the U-T San Diego. Odrisamer Despaigne is headed back to the bullpen.

Kennedy has been on the disabled list since April 10 with a hamstring injury. Despaigne performed admirably in his place, winning two starts while yielding just three runs in 13 2/3 innings.

"We feel good about Ian's hamstring," Black said. "Out of spring training and through the winter time, we're counting on Ian to be one of the anchors in our rotation. This was a little bit of a hiccup ... but he'll resume his spot in the rotation.

"Obviously, we'll watch the game and see how he does, but he doesn't have any restrictions."


Padres P Odrisamer Despaigne strikes out 5 in win


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/21/2015) Padres pitcher Odrisamer Despaigne allowed two earned runs in Monday night's 14-3 win over the Rockies. 

Despaigne had plenty of run support early, with the Padres scoring nine of their 14 runs in the first two innings. Despaigne gave up both of his runs in the fourth inning. He struck out five batters and walked two. He allowed six hits in 6 2/3 innings. 

Despaigne is now 2-0 this season in three starts and holds a 1.47 ERA. 


Padres starter Odrisamer Despaigne pulls down win with seven strong


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/15/2015) Padres starter Odrisamer Despaigne (1-0) allowed one run on two hits in seven innings on Tuesday to beat the Diamondbacks.

Despaigne's lone run was given up in the fourth inning on a Mark Trumbo RBI double.

Despaigne came out of the bullpen for the start after Ian Kennedy was added Friday to the 15-day disabled list.

Despaigne's next start will come Monday in Colorado.

Padres place Ian Kennedy on DL, call up Chris Rearick


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/10/2015) The Padres placed pitcher Ian Kennedy on the 15-day disabled list, the team announced.

Kennedy left Thursday's game with a left hamstring strain. The team is unsure how much time he'll miss.

Odrisamer Despaigne will take Kennedy's place in the rotation, and Chris Rearick has been called up from Triple-A to replace him on the roster.  


Padres' Black: Ian Kennedy could be headed to disabled list


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/9/2015) Padres manager Bud Black said after Thursday's game that a mild hamstring strain might force pitcher Ian Kennedy to the disabled list, The Mighty 1090 Sports Radio reports.

Kennedy suffered the injury in the middle of an at-bat in the third inning Thursday, signaling to the training staff that he had to come out of the game. If he's placed on the disabled list, the Padres will turn to Odrisamer Despaigne, who tossed 4 2/3 hitless innings in relief of Kennedy, to replace the injured pitcher in the rotation, Black said. However, Kennedy isn't sure he'll need a trip to the disabled list, U-T San Diego reports.

"We'll see tomorrow," Kennedy said. "I think it's pretty early to tell. I think tomorrow is gonna be a big indication."


Padres' Odrisamer Despaigne retires 14 straight Giants Thursday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/9/2015) Padres pitcher Odrisamer Despaigne fired off 4 2/3 scoreless innings without allowing a hit or a walk in Thursday's 1-0, 12-inning loss to the Giants.

Despaigne came into the game in the middle of an at-bat in relief of an injured Ian Kennedy, and he went on to walk the inherited batter, with the free pass being charged to the starter. The reliever then sent down the next 14 Giants he faced before handing the reins over to Joaquin Benoit in the top of the eighth. Despaigne would likely enter the rotation in place of Kennedy if the latter needs more than a few days to recover from a hamstring strain.


Padres pitcher Brandon Morrow to be fifth starter in rotation


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/4/2015) Padres pitcher Brandon Morrow will be the team's fifth starter in the rotation when the season begins, the team announced.

Morrow was competing with Odrisamer Despaigne, who will head to the bullpen, for the last spot in the starting rotation. Morrow posted a 4.76 ERA with 12 strikeouts and four walks in five appearances this spring.


Padres' Brandon Morrow to return to mound Tuesday


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/29/2015) Padres pitcher Brandon Morrow will make a start on Tuesday, the U-T San Diego reported.

Morrow missed Thursday's start with a blister. The team hasn't decided if he'll start for the Padres or in a minor league game. Odrisamer Despaigne, who took Morrow's spot on Thursday, will start the other game.


Padres' Despaigne produces solid performance Thursday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2015) Padres pitcher Odrisamer Despaigne continued his solid spring during Thursday's game against the Diamondbacks when he pitched five innings and gave up one run.

Despaigne gave up seven hits while walking two and striking out four. He received a no-decision. Despaigne has thrown 17 innings this spring and given up four runs. Despaigne is competing for the final spot in the Padres' starting rotation.

Padres manager Bud Black said he liked what he saw from Despaigne, but admits he could use better command, reports MLB.com.

"The results were good, but I thought he was a little spotty with his command," Black said. "But I liked the high fastball to some of their power hitters. He battled."


Brandon Morrow has start pushed back due to blister


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2015) Padres starting pitcher Brandon Morrow will have his scheduled start pushed back because of a blister on his right ring finger. Instead, Odrisamer Despaigne will take the mound on Thursday for the Padres, per U-T San Diego.

Manager Bud Black told reporters that Morrow's injury should not impact the fifth-starter race much.

"I don't think it impacts it a lot," Black said. "I think Brandon will be out there soon enough to show what he can do.

"There's still a couple weeks for him to build his pitch count. I don't think it does anything to the competition for now for that spot. We've seen a lot from those guys. They're both going to pitch some more this spring. It's a little bit of a setback for Brandon because it takes him off his schedule a little bit. But that's part of what happens in training camp."


Padres Bud Black choosing between Brandon Morrow, Odrisamer Despaigne


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(3/21/2015) Padres manager Bud Black has yet to name the fifth starter in the team's rotation at this point of the spring, per UT San Diego.

The battle for the role boils down to two right-handers, Brandon Morrow and Odrisamer Despaigne.

"Still close," Black said of the race to round out the rotation. "They're both very good pitches. We'll continue to evaluate and watch them, but those guys are competing hard. It's probably a better question to answer late in March. They're doing great. It's a good competition."

Morrow struggled on Saturday in 3 2/3 innings, giving up five runs. Despaigne came in after him and yielded one earned run in 3 1/3 innings pitched.

Black liked Morrow's velocity but thought he struggled with placement.

"I thought his overall stuff is what you're looking for -- you look for velocity, you look for sharpness of pitches, you look for the secondary (pitches)," Black said. "He just left too many pitches up out over the plate. They got some balls in the gap, and we couldn't track them down."

Despaigne threw 30 strikes on the day against 24 balls.

"Despaigne got to a pitch count, showed the assortment of his pitches," Black said. "They nicked him for a couple of runs, but again, what you're looking for, we saw some things that were positive."


Padres' Despaigne, Morrow impress in bid to win fifth spot


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/6/2015) Padres pitcher Odrisamer Despaigne and Brandon Morrow impressed during their first taste of spring action, according to MLB.com.

"I thought they threw the ball well," said Padres manager Bud Black. Both Despaigne and Morrow are competing for the fifth spot in the team's rotation. While Despaigne got the start, Morrow came on and pitched two innings in relief.

Both players were effective, keeping the White Sox off the board for four innings. Despaigne struck out two batters to Morrow's one, but they posted identical stat lines otherwise. 

Despite the strong performances, Black said it was far too early to draw any conclusions about who will open the season in the rotation.


Black: Morrow, Despaigne might have slight edge for No. 5 SP role


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/26/2015) While Padres manager Bud Black is not ready to put odds on the competition for the final spot in the team's rotation, he did seem to indicate Brandon Morrow and Odrisamer Despaigne might be a little ahead of Robbie Erlin and Matt Wisler , per U-T San Diego.

"I think we're going to look at them all, but Morrow and Despaigne have a little something to them," Black said. "It doesn't hurt Matt to go back to the minors. Robbie Erlin was in our rotation last year, made some starts and pitched well at times. He's still developing. I don't know if there's a front-runner, but you can maybe say that Morrow and Despaigne are out there just a touch."


Padres' Black on Despaigne: 'There's not a lot he needs to do'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/7/2015) Padres manager Bud Black laid out his approach for second-year pitcher Odrisamer Despaigne in 2015 to MLB.com Thursday.

"I think we're going to try to firm up the changeup, which is rare to add, and work on the consistency of his breaking pitch," Black said. "There's not a lot he needs to do other than understand fastball command and locate the ball."

Despaigne may have a spot in the team's 2015 rotation regardless of whether the Padres bring in one more quality starting pitcher. He excelled at Petco Park in 2014, posting a 1.83 ERA in 54 innings over eight starts, but struggled on the road, where he delivered a 5.31 ERA in 42 1/3 innings.


Odrisamer Despaigne shut down for final week of season


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/25/2014) Padres pitcher Odrisamer Despaigne has been shut down for the remainder of the season due to lat soreness, U-T San Diego reports. Despaigne ends his season with a 4-7 record and a 3.36 ERA over 16 starts (96 1/3 innings).

Despaigne hasn't decided if he will pitch this winter. If he does, the Padres have asked him not to exceed 30 innings, per MLB.com


Pain-free session could result in start for Odrisamer Despaigne


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/24/2014) Impressive Padres rookie right-hander Odrisamer Despaigne threw a pain-free side session Tuesday after leaving his Friday start with lat soreness. He had thrown seven shutout innings against San Francisco before his removal.

Bud Black told the San Diego Union-Tribune that he has not ruled out giving Despaigne a start Saturday or Sunday. "For him, it's 'I don't want to miss a start,'" Black said. "It's a pride thing."

If Despaigne has pitched his last game in 2014, he will end the season with a 4-7 record and 3.36 ERA.


Odrisamer Despaigne dealing with lat soreness


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/20/2014) Padres pitcher Odrisamer Despaigne is dealing with lat soreness, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune

Despaigne felt some soreness late in his last start. He's scheduled to make his next start Wednesday, but that could be in doubt based on how well he responds over the next few days.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Despaigne was excellent for much of the outing, but three of his four singles were concentrated in the fourth inning, providing the Diamondbacks with a run and preventing Despaigne from earning a win. He owns a 3.06 ERA and 54:25 K:BB ratio in 79 1/3 innings. Despaigne is scheduled to face the Rockies in Colorado Sunday.

Odrisamer Despaigne: Hitters have adjusted against me


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

"The first five starts, hitters had no idea about me," Despaigne told the San Diego Union-Tribune. "I was the new guy. The last six of them, it's been different. Guys are making more adjustments, seeing me the second time, getting a better idea of how I like to work."

Despaigne found success in his early starts releasing the ball from several different arm angles.
