The Padres went 4-3 this week with a series win over the Mets and a split against the Rockies.
Cronenworth continued his resurgence after a slow April and most of May. He had 10 RBIs in a three-game stretch to help the Padres win the series over New York. His three-run homer in extra innings gave the Padres the lead over the Mets. He had an .879 OPS and 152 wRC+ in the seven games.

The Padres have been searching for consistent production from their right field spot. Wil Myers is on the shelf and maybe for a significant amount of time with knee issues. Enter Mazara. He batted .348 in limited action this week, going 8-for-23 with a double and two RBIs.
Another week, another stellar outing from Joe Musgrove. Though he did not have his best stuff, he still went six shutout innings, striking out eight against the Rockies Friday night. He is the current major league leader with a 1.50 ERA.
After a lull for most of May, Profar is back on a hot streak. He batted .346 (9-for-26) with four extra-base hits. This led to a stellar 1.067 OPS and 200 wRC+ for the week. In clutch situations, Profar continues to come through, with a .338 batting average with runners in scoring position this season.
Although his average this week was not anything to write home about (.207), he slugged two homers, the only Padres hitter to do so this week. One of which nearly punched a hole into the Western Metal Supply Co. building.

Unfortunately, Gore showed a rare rookie moment in his lone start of the week. In the second game of the doubleheader against Colorado on Saturday, he lasted just 2 1/3 innings, allowing six earned runs with four walks, both career highs. This will be an opportunity for him to grow and learn from adversity.
Hosmer’s freefall continues. After a red-hot April, Hosmer has largely fizzled out since. He is hitting .139 in nine games in June, including .118 this week. He reached base just three times in 19 plate appearances.
For most of his time with the Padres, Stammen has been a steady veteran presence in the bullpen. This week, he struggled to retain that form. In four innings over three appearances, he posted a 9.00 ERA. That was due to his poor outing in the Padres’ lone loss to the Mets on Monday. He allowed four runs on five hits, including a homer. However, he has turned in two scoreless outings since.
