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, )
