The 2013 San Diego Padres season was their 45th season in MLB, and their 9th at PETCO Park.

The Padres started the season on April 1 against the New York Mets.[1]

Offseason and spring training[edit]

On January 30, 2013, 2012 Gold Glove and Sliver Slugger third baseman Chase Headley signed a one-year contract worth $8.575 million with San Diego.[2] On March 17, 2013, during spring training, he fractured the tip of his left thumb when it got caught under the second base bag while he was sliding feet-first to break up a double play.[3] He started the season on the disabled list, and returned exactly a month after the injury on April 17.[4]

The Padres finished in eleventh place at the end of spring training, eleven games behind first place Kansas City Royals, with a 16-20 record (10-9 home / 6-11 away) and .444 percentage in the Cactus League.[5]

Regular season[edit]

The Padres began the season with a 5–15 record, but then went 30–19 to move a game above .500 (35–34) for the first time since ending the 2010 season at 90–72.[6]

Rookie second baseman Jedd Gyorko finished the season as the team leader in both home runs (HR) (23) and runs batted in (RBI) (63). His HR total led all MLB rookies that season, and he was the first rookie second baseman in MLB history to lead his team in RBIs. Additionally, he became just the second rookie to lead the Padres in either category since Nate Colbert in San Diego's inaugural season in 1969.[7]
