Pedro Ciriaco went 3-for-6 with a stolen base against the Giants on Monday.
Acquired from the Red Sox in exchange for a player to be named later on Friday, Ciriaco is now 3-for-9 over three games for the Friars. Ciriaco doesn't figure to play or hit enough to become fantasy relevant, but he's usable in deeper NL-only formats at the moment due to Jedd Gyorko's injury.
Logan Forsythe went 2-for-4 and hit his second homer as the Padres' leadoff man on Tuesday.
Forsythe was a forgotten man in San Diego due to his spring foot injury and Jedd Gyorko's move to second base, but getting a chance with Gyorko absent, he's gone 9-for-28 so far and demonstrated why he still belongs in the Padres' plans going forward. He'll probably play some outfield after Gyorko returns.
Jedd Gyorko (groin) took grounders on the field prior to Tuesday's game.
Gyorko landed on the DL over a week ago and is just now getting back into baseball activities. He's eligible to return in a week but will need to go out on a rehab assignment first. It's not clear when he'll be ready for that.
Carlos Quentin (shoulder) is not in the Padres' lineup Tuesday.
He's now missed four straight starts with a sore left shoulder. Quentin remains day-to-day for now, but the disabled list will become a possibility if he doesn't improve in a hurry. Chris Denorfia is starting in left field Tuesday.
Donovan Tate has reported to the Padres' spring training complex in Arizona.
Tate did not show up to camp this past February due to what was described as a personal issue, but he was apparently keeping in contact with the Padres this entire time and has now been allowed back into the organization. "I left baseball in order to gain a grasp on some personal issues in my life," the former third overall pick wrote in a statement to the media on Tuesday.
