News: Benoit didn't allow a run while striking out one batter in one inning to get the win in the Padres' 2-1 victory over the Mets on Sunday. Impact: After allowing a run and taking the loss on Friday, Benoit faced three batters en route to the perfect inning. He's blanked the opposing team in 20 of 22 outings. His ERA stands at 1.99 on the season.(RotoWire, )

News: Benoit stumbled in his first outing after the trade of Huston Street to the Angels. While completing the top of the ninth inning, Benoit gave up one run on one hit and two walks to go with one strikeout versus the Mets on Friday. Impact: Because the putrid Padres offense couldn't put anything together in the bottom of the frame, Benoit took his second loss of the season. He's now strung together two of his worst performances of the season in his last three games, yielding four runs on five hits and four walks in three innings. No matter, he's struck out enough batters (five) during that span to sustain a pristine 10.44 K/9 on the season, and his first save situation as the main fireman should arrive sooner rather than later.(RotoWire, )

News: Benoit will likely assume the Padres' closer role following the trade of Huston Street to the Angels on Friday night. Impact: A six-player swap will send Street north to Orange County, while Benoit should slot into the ninth-inning role for the Padres. It remains possible that Benoit will also be traded, but the Padres are believed to be seeking an even greater return than the four-player package they received for Street.(RotoWire, )

News: Benoit took the loss Wednesday, after giving up three runs on three hits in the eighth inning against the Rockies. Impact: A pair of homers ultimately put the Padres behind for good, as Benoit had a very rare poor showing Wednesday. The three runs bumped his season ERA to 1.91, but he remains one of the more effective staff fillers around given the potential for a Huston Street trade before the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline. It is possible, however, that Benoit will be on the move too, but the Padres may simply want to use him as their new closer after signing him to a two-year, $15.5 million deal in December.(RotoWire, )
