    Yordany Ramirez hit for the cycle and drove in eight runs Sunday for Single-A Lake Elsinore.

    When Lake Elsinore and Lancaster get together, it's in the rules that something interesting has to happen. Lake Elsinore won 30-0 on Friday, and Lancaster's Aaron Bates hit four homers on Saturday. In Sunday's game, Lake Elsinore came back to take the rubber game of the series 21-8. Ramirez also had seven RBI in Friday's massacre, so he entered the series with 10 RBI and left it with 25. The 22-year-old is batting .291/.318/.419 in 148 at-bats.

    with brian giles scheduled to go on the DL with the bruised knee, the Padres are expected to recall Paul McAnulty from AAA-Portland.

    Wouldn't you think that, instead of bringing up a guy hitting .125 in the majors this year, now would be a good time to make a trade of some pitching for Wily Mo or some other hitter? Linebrink's trade value is as high as it can possibly get right now. The longer we hold onto him, the lower his value gets because of his impending free agency. There are other options for a trade also.

    In his second injury rehab outing with Triple-A Portland, Clay Hensley was roughed up against Las Vegas, allowing eight hits, four walks and four earned runs in four innings.

    Hensley threw 86 pitches in the contest. He could be forced into the bullpen when he does return because of the emergence of Justin Germano (2-0, 0.47 ERA in three starts).

    Single-A Lake Elsinore's Chad Huffman homered, doubled, drove in five runs and walked twice on Sunday.

    Huffman is up to .375/.473/.693 in 88 at-bats during May. Four of the seven homers he's hit this month came in ridiculous conditions at Lancaster (he hit two of them in the 30-0 game on May 18), but the 2006 second-round pick's numbers are pretty impressive anyway.
    Scott Cassidy, returning from knee surgery, pitched his sixth scoreless inning Sunday in his rehab assignment for Triple-A Portland.

    Cassidy is ready when needed, but the Padres don'tt have room for him. Justin Hampson has been terrific in middle relief, but he still figures to be a goner when Clay Hensley is activated. The San Diego pitching staff is so strong that Rule-5 pick Kevin Cameron, who hasn't allowed a run in 16 1/3 innings this season, hasn't made an appearance in more than two weeks.

    Clay Hensley (groin) will make another rehab start for Triple-A Portland on Tuesday.

    It will be his third rehab start. The Padres have to be leaning towards bringing Hensley back as a middle reliever.

    Padres activated RHP Scott Cassidy from the 15-day disabled list and optioned him to Triple-A Portland.

    Cassidy was very good in middle relief for the Padres last year, but the team just doesn't have any room for him right now. He'll get a chance later on.
    Double-A San Antonio's Will Venable hit for the cycle and drove in three runs in Wednesday's game.

    Venable had been in an awful slump this month until coming out of it with eight hits the last three games. He's batting .285/.338/.366 overall. Still, the Padres view him as one of their top position prospects.
    Clay Hensley (groin) had another sloppy rehab start Wednesday, giving up six runs -- four earned -- in 4 2/3 innings for Triple-A Portland.

    Knowing he's on the verge of losing his rotation spot, perhaps Hensley is simply trying too hard. He walked five and struck out one yesterday. The performance left him with a 7.30 ERA in his three starts for Portland.

    If Germano has another solid start this weekend he WILL keep his spot in the rotation! Hensley has just not been himself this year.

    I agree, McAnulty hasn't shown much in the majors when given the chance, I would have rather seen Stansberry being given a shot in the outfield. Linebrink is redhot in the holds department and should fetch a decent trade value, nows the time to rely on the younger arms and get that hitter we need. I'd like to keep him but we need that power bat, strikeouts and defense not withstanding. Dunn, Rios or Pena are the guys we need to pursue.

    we have had 2 guys hit for the cycle in what th past 2-3 week? both play outfield. i know it was A and AA but maybe promotions for the 2 to see what they can do. i know venable was struggling before that but isnt he supposed to find the big club soemday as a starting outfielder

    Venable has great potential, but after picking up Bocachica yesterday i dont think he'll get a shot until maybe september call-ups.

    Hiram Bocachica, 31, good defensively, plays all 3 outfield positions, not much of a hitter though and cheap. Sounds like the answer to all our problems. Apparently he'll be in uniform shortly and someone will be shipped down. At least Jose Cruz will have a friend from Ponce Leone, they go way back.

    bocachica certainly answers our need for a power hitter. in the majors this year, he is 1-17 (yes, 1-17) with a HR!!!! he'll be rivaling pujols and howard by year's end!

    hey john moores, quit being cheap and go get alex rios.

    Dear Mr. Moores (),
    If Jose Cruz Jr needs a playmate, buy him a subscription to Playboy. Please listen to the empty walleted but well meaning slobs on Prosportsdaily.com and get the Padres a power hitting outfielder. We want to win a playoff series this year, ok? ().

    Yours Truly,

    Padres optioned infielder Oscar Robles to Triple-A Portland.

    Robles, who didn't get a chance to overtake Geoff Blum in a utility role, went 5-for-21 in more than five weeks with the Padres. This makes room for Hiram Bocachica on the roster.
