Padres rookie Alex Dickerson is earning a long look down the stretch with home runs in four straight games (and the Padres have homered in 25 straight games, two shy of the MLB record of the 2002 Rangers). Dickerson is 26 and never had the plate discipline in the minors to tap into his power potential, but he could hit himself into the team's 2017 plans.
The San Diego Padres made a few roster moves before Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays, recalling utility man Alexi Amarista and left-hander Buddy Baumann from Triple-A El Paso.

Right-hander Andrew Cashner could be the next prominent player traded away by the Padres.

The Blue Jays need pitching more than another outfielder. But Melvin Upton gives them some OF insurance with Jose Bautista and Michael Saunders headed to free agency in November. He's also tied for 3rd among MLB left fielders with 9 Defensive Runs Saved, and he has 20 stolen bases this season. The Blue Jays have only 32 steals as a team, so Upton provides some speed they've been lacking on the roster.
The Toronto Blue Jays have acquired outfielder Melvin Upton Jr. from the San Diego Padres.
