  • Padres' Jackson Merrill: Not in Wednesday's lineup

    Merrill is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game versus the Rockies.

    The Rockies are sending southpaw Austin Gomber to the hill, so Padres manager Mike Shildt decided it would be a good day to give the left-handed-hitting Merrill a breather. Jose Azocar will patrol center field Wednesday.

  • Padres' Jackson Merrill: Swipes another bag

    Merrill went 1-for-4 with a run and a stolen base in Tuesday's loss to the Rockies.

    Merrill struck out in his first two at-bats before reaching on a fielder's choice in the seventh inning and coming around to score soon thereafter. He added a single and stolen base in the eighth but was left stranded. Merrill has notched three thefts over his past three games and ranks second on San Diego with seven steals on the season.

  • Padres' Jackson Merrill: Swats third homer

    Merrill went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in Monday's loss to Colorado.

    Merrill was the only Padre with multiple hits in the contest, and his seventh-inning solo shot brought the team to within one run, though it turned out to be the final tally of the game. The rookie has notched consecutive multi-hit performances and has multiple hits in four of his past eight contests overall, so he could be back on the rise following an eight-game stretch from late April to early May during which he went 1-for-23 at the plate. Merrill still has a strong .291/.342/.403 slash line along with three homers, 17 RBI, 18 runs and six stolen bases on the season.

  • Padres' Jackson Merrill: Impactful game in win

    Merrill went 3-for-4 with two steals and a run scored in Sunday's 4-0 win over the Dodgers.

    Merrill tallied at least three hits in a game for the fourth time this season and it was his 11th multi-hit game of his rookie campaign. Merrill hadn't swiped a bag since April 16 but managed to steal and eventually score in the fourth before taking another base in the eighth. He's settled in nicely thus far, slashing .282/.331/.374 with two homers, 16 RBI, 17 runs, six steals and a 10:23 BB:K in 143 plate appearances.

  • Padres' Jackson Merrill: Goes deep in loss

    Merrill went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer in Sunday's 11-4 loss to the Diamondbacks.

    Merrill took Ryne Nelson deep to right center in the second to open up the scoring for the Padres and later notched a single off the bat at 102.4 mph. He's now tallied a hit in each of his last three games and has five RBI over that span after going on a mini slump to end the month of April. The 21-year-old rookie has put together some solid numbers at the plate early on, slashing .284/.333/.388 with two homers, 16 RBI, 16 runs, four steals and a 9:20 BB:K in 127 plate appearances.

  • Padres' Jackson Merrill: Back in action Saturday

    Merrill (groin) is starting in center field and batting eighth Saturday against the Phillies.

    Groin tightness has prevented Merrill from playing in the Padres' last two games, but he is seemingly feeling better heading into Saturday's contest. The 21-year-old is 5-for-18 with four RBI across his last five games, though all five of his hits in that span have been singles.

  • Padres' Jackson Merrill: Not starting Friday

    Merrill (groin) is not in the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Phillies, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Merrill was taken out of the lineup ahead of Thursday's loss to the Rockies as a precaution, and he was expected to be back Friday, per Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune. It appears the groin injury is still lingering, however, and the rookie outfielder will not start for a second consecutive game. With Merrill out of the lineup, Jose Azocar will start in center field, Jurickson Profar will be in left field and Manny Machado will make his return from his paternity leave to start at third base.

  • Padres' Jackson Merrill: Expected back Friday

    Merrill (groin) is expected to return to the lineup Friday against the Phillies, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Merrill was scratched from the lineup ahead of Thursday's 10-9 loss to the Rockies, but his absence was deemed precautionary while he manages a groin issue. The rookie said after the game that feels fine and is adjusting to the rigors of the MLB schedule. While Merrill is expected to return Friday, it will be worth confirming that he's included in the lineup as San Diego opens a three-game series with Philadelphia.

  • Padres' Jackson Merrill: Scratched from lineup Thursday

    Merrill was scratched from the lineup for Thursday's game in Colorado due to right groin tightness, Manny Randhawa of MLB.com reports.

    Padres manager Mike Shildt said the move was precautionary and Merrill could have played, so it sounds safe to call the rookie outfielder day-to-day. Jose Azocar will shift over to center field, Tyler Wade will move to left and Eguy Rosario will enter the lineup at third base.

  • Padres' Jackson Merrill: Looking great at plate

    Merrill went 3-for-4 with an RBI in Sunday's extra-inning win against the Dodgers to push his batting average up to .333 on the season.

    Among Merrill's three hits Sunday was a sixth-inning infield single that plated the game-tying run. The rookie hit just .233 through his first 11 major-league games but has been swinging a hot bat since, going 11-for-24 (.458) over his subsequent seven contests. Merrill has knocked just one homer and notched just five RBI, but he's scored 12 runs and has a pair of steals along with an 8:11 BB:K that suggests he's handling big-league pitching just fine.

  • Padres' Jackson Merrill: Notches second steal

    Merrill went 0-for-2 with two walks, a run, an RBI and a stolen base Wednesday in a 10-2 win against the Cubs.

    Merrill didn't collect any hits in the contest, but he made a productive out with his second-inning fielder's choice that brought home the Padres' second run. The rookie also picked up his second theft of the campaign, both of which have come his past four games. Merrill is batting a steady .286 on the season, and though he has just one homer and three RBI, he's posted a promising 7:10 BB:K and has scored 11 runs through 15 games.
