Finger - Out until at least late March (Updated - 3/24/15)
News
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."

News
Padres catcher Derek Norris is starting to get his timing down at the plate after opening the spring mired in a 2-for-29 slump. He has gone 3 for 5 with one home run and two RBI in his last two spring games, to raise his average from .069 to .147.

“I was starting too late, instead of starting early and being easy with it,” Norris said of his leg kick, per U-T San Diego. “I was being late and quick with it, so it caused a lot of head movement, not recognizing pitches well enough. So I’m just trying to slow the game down and just let my natural ability take place.

“(I've been) just a little jumpy. When you’re a little bit jumpy, it just means you’re late. For me, my leg kick, getting it up early, getting it down, so when your lead foot hits, that’s when you can start to fire and hit. Whenever it’s late, then you have to rush and it all gets out of whack. So just get it up early, nice and easy, and it’s been a lot better the last few days.”

Norris added learning a new pitching staff might have also contributed to his slow start.

“My priority’s definitely getting to know these guys on the mound," he said. "That’s No. 1. Obviously, everybody would love to go 4 for 4 every day. In my case, controlling a pitching staff and getting to know these guys is priority No. 1, and I definitely put that ahead of everything else, ahead of hitting, ahead of weightlifting.”

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."

Padres utilty man Yangervis Solarte will be in the lineup most days. He just doesn't know where. 

"Every day, it's a new place," he said per MLB.com's Corey Brock. "And that's good for me. I can play everywhere. That's a good situation. I can do everything. The more positions I can play, the better it is for me. I think that it can help me and help the team."

"We feel good about Solarte in there," said manager Bud Black.

Solarate has started at three infield positions this spring and is hitting .295. 

"Overall, he's done a nice job moving around the diamond," Black said. "The versatility he brings is very advantageous for us. He brings some offense, some durability."

News
Padres pitcher Shawn Kelley has allowed just one hit and one walk in his last 5 1/3 spring innings while striking out six and feels ready for the regular season, MLB.com reports.

"I feel good," Kelley said Wednesday. "I think I'm ready to go."

Kelley got out to a slow start this spring, allowing home runs in each of his first two appearances.

"It usually takes me a few [games] to get going," Kelley said. "I stay away from the slider my first few outings just to get the arm strength built up. When you're in Arizona and you are just throwing fastballs, late in a spring-training game, balls get hit."

The team like Kelley's fastball-slider mix and he'll likely feature in a setup role for the team this year.

"This guy can make pitches. He can truly pitch to a hitter's weakness," manager Bud Black said.

News
Padres pitcher Tyson Ross is feeling ready to get the season under way, according to the Press-Enterprise.

“Physically I felt good,” he said. “It’s been a good spring so far, another step in the right direction … I had a good feel for my sinker today and I was able to get some strikeouts with that, running it back away from right-handed hitters and not just using my slider.”

Ross is working on his changeup and he wants to use it more often.

“It’s kind of hard when the other pitches are working well, but it’s going to be a pitch I need to use the third time through the lineup, to get a little separation (in speed) off the fastball and slider,” he said. “I mixed in a couple today and I’m going to keep working it in.”

Manager Bud Black said that could be what he needs to get to the next level.

“It’s tough, because if you take a regular season game and he’s fighting like heck to keep the other team from scoring, you never want to get beat on your third or fourth pitch,” Black said. “The other two are so devastating, it’s tough not to go in that direction.”

On Saturday, the right-hander struck out 12 batters in six innings while giving up six hits and one run.

Ross, 27, has a career ERA of 3.70 with 416 stirkeouts and 186 walks in five years of play.
