The San Diego Padres affiliates went on 0-2 Monday. Only the DSL Padres and the ACL Padres were in action.

Here is a recap of the day’s events.


El Paso Chihuahuas (Triple-A) (37-29 on the season) 



San Antonio Missions (Double-A)  (34-27 on the season)



Fort Wayne TinCaps (High Single-A) (26-37 on the season) 



Lake Elsinore Storm (Low Single-A) (38-25 on the season)



ACL Padres (Lost 9-4) (4-7 on the season)

Sammy Zavala- (1-for-3) 2B, 2 RBI, K

Rosman Verdugo– (1-for-3) HR, RBI, Run

Josh Mears- (1-for-3) 2B, RBI, K

Eddy Beltre– (1-for-3) 2 Runs, SB, K

Henry Baez– 4 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, BB, 7 K


The ACL Padres lost late, as the D-Backs scored six runs in the sixth inning to take the game. Walki Lezan was roughed up, giving up six earned runs while only recording one out on Monday. The 20-year-old owns a 19.50 ERA so far this season for the Padres. Fernando Sanchez started the game for the ACL Padres and only went one inning, giving up two earned runs while striking out two batters. 19-year-old Henry Baez relieved Sanchez and threw four terrific innings, striking out seven batters. Baez has good size at 6-foot-3 and is a decent pitching prospect for the Padres.

Samuel Zavala recorded his first hit in the States, sending a booming double deep into the night. The ball sounds completely different off his bat, and the 17-year-old has a very nice ceiling. The Padres are pleased with what he is showing at a very young age. Josh Mears continues to rehab in the desert and went 1-for-3 with a double for the ACL Padres team. 17-year-old Rosman Verdugo homered for the second time this spring. Victor Acosta was 0-for-3 with a walk, a run, and a strikeout in the game. The infielder is a very high;y-touted shortstop on the Padres roster.


DSL Padres (Lost 11-10) (8-5 on the season)

Jose Sanabria– (2-for-6) 2B, 2 Runs, RBI, K

Estevan Giron- (3-for-4) 3B, 2B, 3 RBIs, 3 Runs, BB, K

Maikol Munoz– (4-for-5) HR, 3B, 4 RBIs, K

Oswaldo Linares– (2-for-5) Run, K

Jefren Tejeda– 2.1 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, BB, 2 K


Despite two late runs in the eighth, the DSL team lost 11-10 in nine innings on Monday. Josmar Acevedo, Javier Zenzio, and Angel Garza were all roughed up, as the trio gave up ten earned runs in a little over five innings pitched. Garza was charged with the loss as he coughed up four earned runs in 2.2 innings pitched. Jefren Tejeda did pitch well for the Padres as the 18-year-old lefty went 2.1 innings and did not allow an earned run.

Outfielder Maikol Munoz was the hitting star as the 18-tear-old tight-handed hitter went 4-for-5, slugging his first home run of the year. The Venezuelan native was signed in January and could be a prospect to monitor. Jose Sanabria and Estevan Giron both recorded multiple hits in the loss.
