News: Benoit retired the side in the ninth inning Tuesday against the Brewers, securing his ninth save of the season in the 4-1 victory. Impact: All of Benoit's outs came via fly outs, with the favorable dimensions of Petco Park seemingly bailing him out on two of the pop flies. Benoit has gone 9-for-10 in save chances this season while recording a 1.58 ERA, 0.81 WHIP and 60:14 K:BB ratio over 51.1 innings.(RotoWire, )

News: Benoit (shoulder) secured his eighth save of the season Sunday in Arizona, tossing a scoreless ninth inning with one strikeout. Impact: Making his first appearance since Aug. 13 as a result of a sore shoulder, Benoit managed six strikes during the 12-pitch frame, during which he induced two popouts and the aforementioned punchout. By proving his health, the 38-year-old veteran will assume his place as the Padres' closer, thereby pushing Kevin Quackenbush back to the setup role.(RotoWire, )

News: Benoit (shoulder) could pitch as early as Friday or Saturday, Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Impact: Benoit took a step in the right direction Thursday when he threw a bullpen session under the observation of manager Bud Black. The Padres' skipper apparently liked what he saw enough to declare that Benoit should be available in the next couple days.(RotoWire, )

News: Benoit (shoulder) has proceeded to throwing off a mound, Corey Brock of MLB.com reports. Impact: Benoit had been contained to long toss, so progress has been made with his recovery from a "cranky" right shoulder. The 37-year-old reliever is expected to endure a few more days of treatment before a call is made on a DL stint, one way or the other. If the Padres opt to deal Benoit during the waiver trade deadline, Kevin Quackenbush would likely be entrusted with closing duties for the remainder of the year.(RotoWire, )

News: The Padres have yet to rule out a stay on the DL for Benoit (shoulder), Corey Brock of MLB.com reports. Impact: Benoit, who hasn't pitched since Aug. 13, is scheduled for a "couple more" days of treatment, according to manager Bud Black, after which the aforementioned decision will be made. Backdating a DL stint would allow Benoit to return before the end of August, which doubles as the waiver trade deadline. If the Padres opt to move the 37-year-old reliever and his $8 million 2015 price tag, closing duties would likely fall on the shoulders of Kevin Quackenbush, at least for the remainder of this season.(RotoWire, )

News: Benoit is unavailable out of the bullpen Sunday due to a sore shoulder, Jeff Sanders of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Impact: Benoit's shoulder has been described as "cranky," so the team will give him a guaranteed day of rest to help him return to full strength. With a scheduled off day Monday, manager Bud Black expects his closer to be available again Tuesday, suggesting that the soreness is minor. Look for Dale Thayer or Alex Torres to see a save opportunity Sunday if one arises.(RotoWire, )

News: Benoit worked around two hits to record a scoreless inning and notch his seventh save of the season Wednesday against the Rockies. Impact: Benoit made things a bit nerve-wracking by surrendering a single and double in succession to put the tying run in scoring position, but he coaxed a foul out from Drew Stubbs to end the threat. With a magnificent 1.64 ERA and 0.85 WHIP on the season, and the trade deadline now in the rear-view mirror, Benoit should enjoy ample job security as the Padres' closer the rest of the way.(RotoWire, )
