Pomeranz leads Padres’ two-hit shutout in LA – MLB.com
The Dodgers outscored the Padres 25-0 in the opening series this year and have paid the price ever since, including Thursday night, when Drew Pomeranz threw seven scoreless innings on two hits in a 6-0 San Diego win.

San Diego is 5-2 against the Dodgers since that April series sweep, this one coming at the expense of Dodgers lefty Hyun-Jin Ryu, who was making his first start since the 2014 postseason. Ryu, returning from shoulder surgery, was roughed up for six runs in 4 2/3 innings.

Padres sign Adrian Morejon for $11 million – San Diego Union-Tribune
Morejon, who was cleared Wednesday, immediately rates as one of the Padres’ top prospects. The 6-foot-1, 195-pounder is advanced for his age, with a low-90s fastball and a plus curveball. He throws two different change-ups — one with a knuckle grip, the other with a two-seam grip.

If Morejon were entering the 2017 June draft, some evaluators think he would warrant the first overall pick. A number of Padres scouts believed Morejon is a better talent than Jason Groome, a fellow left-hander who was considered the top pitching prospect in last month’s draft.

Chargers Sign Third-Round Pick Max Tuerk
After the signing of Matt Slauson, Tuerk’s role for his rookie season likely became that of the team’s backup interior lineman. However, with the four-year deal, you can expect that the team is grooming him to eventually take over the role as the team’s starting Center long-term.
