The Padres announced their 2015 regular season schedule this morning, along with every other MLB team.  If you want to read about all the Dodgers and when the Padres will face them in 2015, see the Padres Friarwire article here.  At least, it seems to me that’s what that article mostly focuses on.

The Friars will open their 2015 season with three games against the Dodgers in Los Angeles before starting their home schedule on April 9 against the San Francisco Giants.

The interleague schedule will feature games against teams from the American League West.  And with their Vedder Cup rivals, the Seattle Mariners, with two-game series in Seattle (May 12-13) and in Petco Park (June 30-July 1), of course.

The Houston Astros come to San Diego for the first time as an American League team August 27-29.

The Padres 2015 interleague schedule also includes home series against Oakland (June 15-16) and Texas (August 31-September 2). The Padres will also travel to Texas, Oakland, and Anaheim.

Times have not yet been announced.
