OF Manuel Margot ran the bases before Saturday’s game and is expected to begin a rehab assignment Monday or Tuesday, San Diego manager Andy Green said. Margot has been on the 10-day disabled list with a strained right calf since May 25.
RHP Dinelson Lamet set career highs Saturday with 12 strikeouts in six innings but took no decision in the Padres’ 7-5 victory at Milwaukee. His 12 strikeouts are the most by a rookie MLB pitcher this season, tying Cincinnati’s Amir Garrett, and the second most ever by a Padres rookie. He’s 2-2 with a 7.0 ERA in five starts this season.
1B Wil Myers homered for the second time in as many games Saturday as he continued to show signs of snapping out of a two-week power drought. Myers hit seven home runs with a .310 average in April, but his average, and power numbers, plummeted in May. He now has three home runs and seven RBIs this month, bringing his average from .214 to .262. “My swing is starting to feel pretty good over the last couple of days,” Myers said. “I know I‘m close. It’s just one of those things that sometimes it lasts longer than you want, but you just keep showing up.”
RHP Jered Weaver will make a rehab start Thursday with Triple-A El Paso after he reported no issues with his left hip following a three-inning simulated game Friday in Milwaukee. Weaver has been on the 10-day disabled list since May 20 because of inflammation in the hip.
