Padres have called up hard-throwing RP prospect R.J. Alvarez.

Alvarez has potential to be a great closer for the Padres. So far this season he's pitched 43.1 innings and has 61 strikeouts in 38 Double-A games played.

Tyson Ross allowed one earned run on six hits while walking two and striking out eight over six inning as the Padres beat the Diamondbacks 3-1 on Monday.

Ross continues to be a good source of strikeouts for fantasy owners. He piled up eight more strikeouts today as he recorded a win with a rather inept offense that is the San Diego Padres. He has logged 14 straight quality starts, but the lowly Padres offense leaves him with a 6-6 record during that stretch. Keep starting Ross as he has an excellent ERA and should be a pitcher you target in your drafts next year.

Tyson Ross tweaked his left knee fielding a comebacker in the fifth inning, but says he's fine.

Ross has been fantastic this season, and while his 3.31 FIP suggests he has been pitching slightly over his head, it is only slightly. He is a pitcher to target in your 2015 drafts.

Joe Wieland will be recalled from Triple-A San Antonio on Tuesday.

Wieland is working his way back from Tommy John surgery so the Padres will likely only use him in low-level situations.

Robbie Erlin and Leonel Campos will be called up from Triple-A El Paso on Monday.

Erlin could get a spot start maybe, depending on how the Padres really want to use him. Campos will pitch out of the pen.

Joaquin Benoit has inflammation in his pitching shoulder that needs to settle down for seven to 10 days.

If you are a Benoit owner and you haven't already made a move to grab Kevin Quakenbush, the time is now. Padres skipper Bud Black still expects Benoit to return to the role once the inflammation subsides, so this isn't just a straight pick-up and drop. It's a temporary move. Benoit went through this last season as well and was still able to finish the year strong.
