Padres SP Odrisamer Despaigne earns first win in two months


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/26/2015) The last time Odrisamer Despaigne won a game, summer was three weeks away and Donald Trump was not a presidential candidate. But the drought is over.

The Padres starter finally performed well enough and received enough run support (barely) to snag his fourth win and first since May 31. He allowed just one run on two hits in six innings to edge Miami. Despaigne walked two and struck out three along the way.

The hits were successive singles to start the fifth that finally resulted in a run off a sacrifice fly. He retired the next four batters in order before leaving the game.

Despaigne rebounded nicely from a poor start Tuesday. He shrunk his ERA to 4.76 in the process.


Padres SP Odrisamer Despaigne allows six runs in Tuesday's loss


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(7/22/2015) Padres pitcher Odrisamer Despaigne was hit hard during Tuesday's 9-3 loss to the Giants.

Despaigne allowed six runs on seven hits over five innings of work. He also struck out one and walked two. He gave up a solo home run to Hunter Pence in the second inning and a three-run home run to Brandon Crawford in the fourth. He received his seventh loss of the season for his effort.

"Didn't seem like he was focused from Jump Street," Padres interim manager Pat Murphy said, per MLB.com. "Even in the first inning, it didn't seem like he was hitting spots. In the second, got on it a little bit, looked better in the third, then fourth inning breakdown, was a little better in the fifth. I was disappointed that he didn't have better command."

Despaigne is now winless in his last eight starts and has just one quality start over those outings.


Padres set rotation for second half


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(7/12/2015) The Padres will turn to pitcher James Shields to open the second half of the season Friday against the Rockies, reports MLB.com. Shields will be followed by Tyson Ross, Andrew Cashner, Ian Kennedy and Odrisamer Despaigne.

"It's a new beginning," interim manager Pat Murphy said. "An opportunity to get everybody recuperated and come back… It's a little disruption of their work, their rhythm, but more for Cashner, Kennedy and Despy than Shields."


Odrisamer Despaigne gets five-inning no-decision for Padres


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7/4/2015) Padres starter Odrisamer Despaigne went five innings in a no-decision against St. Louis on Saturday. 

Despaigne has not made it through six innings in his last three starts and hasn't gone seven in his last six outings. 

Despaigne gave up one run on four hits and struck out three. He hasn't earned a win since May 31. 

"He had a great plan," said Padres interim manager Pat Murphy, per MLB.com. "[Catcher Derek] Norris had a great game plan, and to me, he was the unsung hero. He called a good game, kept Despi going.

"Give credit to Despi, too. I think that he's feeding off the way the team is playing. I think he felt the expectation, and Derek took him through it."


Padres' Odrisamer Despaigne strikes out six in loss


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(6/28/2015) Padres pitcher Odrisamer Despaigne struck out six batters in Sunday afternoon's 6-4 loss to the Diamondbacks. 

Though Despaigne was able to record the six Ks and keep Diamondbacks batters to only three hits, he allowed five runs — four earned — thanks to two home runs surrendered. Despaigne now has a 4.94 ERA for the season. 


Padres' Odrisamer Despaigne gives up two runs in no-decision


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/24/2015) Padres' starter Odrisamer Despaigne gave up two runs over five innings in a no-decision on Tuesday. 

Despaigne had his shortest outing since May 15. He allowed five hits, walked two and struck out two. 

Despaigne's next start is Sunday against Arizona. 


Padres' Despaigne has strong history vs. NL West foe Giants


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/23/2015) Padres starting pitcher Odrisamer Despaigne heads into Tuesday's start against the Giants having gone 0-2 with a 5.89 ERA in his first three June starts. Perhaps a matchup against San Francisco is coming at the ideal time since the right-hander has performed well against the NL West foe in his young career.

Despaigne is 2-0 with a 0.36 ERA and 0.53 WHIP in four career outings (three starts) against the Giants. He also has 10 strikeouts and five walks in 24 2/3 innings.

Despaigne faced San Francisco in a relief appearance April 9, tossing 4 2/3 perfect innings. He struck out one.


Padres P Odrisamer Despaigne allows 6 runs in loss


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(6/18/2015) Padres pitcher Odrisamer Despaigne gave up six earned runs in Wednesday night's 16-2 blowout loss to the Athletics.

Despaigne was beat up early, with Oakland scoring four runs in the first inning. His first pitch of the game was tagged for a double by Billy Burns. From there, his first frame spiraled out of control. 

Despite the poor start, Despaigne still went six innings. He gave up eight hits and one walk while striking out two batters. This marked the sixth game in a row that Despaigne has gone at least six innings. 

Despaigne now has a 4.79 ERA for the season. 

His next start is projected for June 2 against the Giants. 


Padres SP Odrisamer Despaigne pitches well in no-decision


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/13/2015) Padres right-hander Odrisamer Despaigne pitched well in a no-decision on Friday against the Dodgers. Despaigne allowed just two runs (one earned) on six hits over 6 1/3 innings. He walked one and struck out five, marking the fifth consecutive start in which he has gone at least six innings.

Despaigne (3-4) gave up an RBI single to Adrian Gonzalez in the third inning, and another to A.J. Ellis in the fourth.

He now has back-to-back winless starts. He'll look to get back in the win column when he makes his next start on Wednesday in Oakland.


Padres' Odrisamer Despaigne allows four runs in loss vs. Reds


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/7/2015) Padres pitcher Odrisamer Despaigne took the loss on Sunday, allowing four earned runs on nine hits in six innings while striking out three and walking none in his team's 4-0 defeat against the Reds.

Despaigne (3-4) pitched well over the first five innings of Sunday's start, with the only damage coming on a Jay Bruce home run in the second inning. However, Bruce came up again with two men on in the sixth and blasted his second homer of the day, preventing Despaigne from recording what would have been his fourth straight quality start.

"He was victimized by a big power hitter in Jay Bruce twice on balls that were up at the very top of the zone or possibly balls," manager Bud Black said, per MLB.com. "But I thought Despi was good. [It's] just Bruce got him on the two high fastballs."

Despaigne owns a 4.72 ERA and 28:12 K:BB ratio in 55 1/3 innings. He's slated to face the Dodgers at home on Friday.


Padres swap Andrew Cashner, Odrisamer Despaigne in rotation


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/5/2015) Padres manager Bud Black has altered his rotation slightly heading into the weekend series against the Reds. Black has opted to swap right-handers Andrew Cashner and Odrisamer Despaigne. Cashner will stay on regular rest and pitch on Saturday, while Despaigne goes on Sunday.

"We want to get Cash back on the mound,” said Black, per The San Diego Union-Tribune. "Cash pitched four (and 2/3) innings (against the Mets) and I wanted him back on the mound as soon as possible. Despy gets two extra days of rest."


Two rotation spots for Padres' Kennedy, Despaigne, Morrow


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/2/2015) Padres manager Bud Black discussed the team's rotation on Monday, saying that two of Ian Kennedy, Odrisamer Despaigne and Brandon Morrow would remain in the rotation upon Morrow's return, MLB.com reports.

"We have several options," said Black. "Despaigne made three good starts; no doubt about it. The options are when Brandon comes back, move Morrow into the rotation and move either Ian or Despaigne to the bullpen . . . or put Brandon in bullpen."

Despaigne opened the season in the bullpen, while Morrow also has bullpen experience. Kennedy hasn't pitched out of the bullpen before but has struggled in the rotation this year, posting a 7.15 ERA and 37:14 K:BB ratio in 39 innings.

"Kennedy's trying to get his release point a little higher for a better downward angle," Black said. "It's a little different for Ian, who is more of a drop-and-drive, long-stride thrower. There are subtle adjustments. Fastball command has been an issue. Physically he feels fine, just a couple minor mechanical adjustments. In the games he's pitched well, he's located his fastball and his secondary pitches landed in the strike zone. We want to get Ian back to being the pitcher we've seen here."

Morrow is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment with Double-A San Antonio on Tuesday and is expected to make at least two rehab starts with the team.

"Brandon has to pitch well and feel good Tuesday," said Black. "He'll probably have to do it again Sunday. Sixty pitches Tuesday and then bump to 75-80, so when he comes back he'll be capable of 90, 95, 100 pitches."


Padres pitcher Odrisamer Despaigne allows one run in win


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/31/2015) Padres pitcher Odrisamer Despaigne allowed one run on seven hits in eight innings of work in San Diego's 7-1 win over the Pirates on Sunday. Despaigne's lone blemish came in the seventh inning when he allowed a solo home run to Gregory Polanco.

"I think with Despy, we've talked about being less than a trickster and being more of a pitcher and making pitches," Padres manager Bud Black said to U-T San Diego. "I think with his motion, his varying arm angles, at times he feel as though he has to trick hitters. He’s got good stuff. He can throw the ball up to … 94 mph; that's legit velocity.

"He doesn't need to fool people. He can pitch."

Other than that, Despaigne recorded four strikeouts with just one walk in his longest outing of the season. He is now 3-3 with a 4.56 ERA in 49 1/3 innings of work. He will look to keep things rolling Saturday against the Reds.


Padres' Odrisamer Despaigne has six shutout innings in no-decision


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/27/2015) Padres starter Odrisamer Despaigne had six shutout innings against the Angels on Tuesday, but he left with a no-decision. 

Despaigne struck out five, allowed five hits and didn't walk a batter. He lowered his ERA to 5.23 with the performance.

The next start for Despaigne is Sunday, against Pittsburgh. 


Padres' Odrisamer Despaigne allows two runs in loss vs. Cubs


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2015) Padres pitcher Odrisamer Despaigne took the loss on Thursday, giving up two earned runs on six hits and two walks in six innings while striking out four in his team's 3-0 shutout against the Cubs.

Despaigne (2-3) took his third straight loss, although his previous two outings were both blowouts. The starter surrendered a two-run homer to the second batter of the game but was able to pitch well over the remainder of his night. His offense hasn't scored a run of support in three straight outings.

Despaigne owns a 6.11 ERA and 16:11 K:BB ratio in 35 1/3 innings. He's in line to face the Angels on the road on Tuesday, and manager Bud Black said after the game that it's more than likely Despaigne will remain in the rotation for his next potential start, per MLB.com.


Padres pitcher Odrisamer Despaigne to get at least one more start


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/16/2015) Padres pitcher Odrisamer Despaigne will get at least one more start in the rotation after his struggles on Friday, manager Bud Black said per U-T San Diego.

"We're talking about where we're going to slot him for his next start," Padres manager Bud Black said. "With the off day Monday, we can do a few things with the rotation. A lot of it will be based on the other guys and not specifically on Despaigne."

It was Despaigne's third consecutive rough outing. He has ballooned his ERA to 6.75 with 19 runs allowed in his last 9 2/3 innings.

"Sometimes my fastball isn't working and sometimes it's my curveball that's not working," Despaigne said. "It's a matter of consistency."


Padres P Odrisamer Despaigne allows seven runs in Friday's loss


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Despaigne has now surrendered 15 runs in eight innings over his last two starts and his ERA now stands at 6.75. His next expected start is scheduled for Thursday against the Cubs.


Padres push back starter Odrisamer Despaigne in rotation


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/10/2015) The Padres will use their off day Monday to push back starter Odrisamer Despaigne in the rotation, now going with Ian Kennedy in Game 1 of the Padres' series in Seattle on Tuesday and keeping James Shield (Wednesday) and Tyson Ross (Thursday) on regular rest, reports U-T San Diego.

Andrew Cashner would presumably start Friday on regular rest, leaving Despaigne to return to the rotation Saturday against the Nationals.

Despaigne struggled during his last start, giving up eight runs on 10 hits in five innings for a loss.

“We'll push him back, not skip,” Padres manager Bud Black said Sunday. “Pushing back is a little bit different than skipping. Skip means that we're putting someone else in.”

Despaigne was moved into the starting rotation from the bullpen when pitcher Brandon Morrow (shoulder) went on the disabled list May 3.


Padres P Odrisamer Despaigne struggles in Thursday's loss


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

His next expected start is scheduled for Wednesday at Seattle.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

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."
