The 2015 San Diego Padres season was their 47th season in MLB, and their 12th at Petco Park. General Manager A. J. Preller had a busy offseason, acquiring a new starting outfield in Matt Kemp, Justin Upton, and Wil Myers, while adding to an already strong bullpen with All-Star closer Craig Kimbrel. The Padres also signed free agent starting pitcher James Shields.[1][2] San Diego traded away seven of its top 11 prospects, as rated by Baseball America entering the offseason.[2]

After starting the season 32–33 and six games behind in the National League West, the Padres fired manager Bud Black, who had managed the team for eight-plus seasons. Bench coach Dave Roberts filled in as manager for one game until Pat Murphy was named the interim manager.[3][4] After spending one season as a third base coach for the Diamondbacks, on October 29, 2015, Andy Green was named manager of the San Diego Padres.
