  • Padres' Craig Stammen: Returning on club option

    The Padres have exercised their $4 million club option on Stammen for the 2022 season, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    The righty bounced back from a rough 2020 to post a 3.06 ERA and 1.04 WHIP in 88.1 innings in 2021. Stammen's versatility out of the bullpen and availability for spot starts makes him a huge asset, even as he heads into his age-38 season.

  • Padres' Craig Stammen: Back in action

    Stammen (illness) was activated from the COVID-19-related injured list Thursday.

    Stammen experienced flu-like symptoms but apparently did not test positive for COVID-19. As a result, he was only forced to miss two games. He should be available to pitch in Thursday's contest if needed, as he has not taken the mound since Sept. 24.

  • Padres' Craig Stammen: Feeling effects of flu

    Stammen's placement on the COVID-19-related injured list Tuesday was the result of him experiencing flu-like symptoms, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Since Stammen hasn't tested positive for the virus and was merely placed on the IL as a precaution, he'll be eligible to rejoin the Padres before the season ends Sunday. In 65 appearances (four starts) spanning 85.2 innings this season, Stammen has gone 6-3 with seven holds, one save and a 2.94 ERA.

  • Padres' Craig Stammen: Lands on injured list

    Stammen was placed on the injured list Tuesday without an injury designation, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    The lack of an injury designation often indicates the move is related to the COVID-19 protocols, which would allow Stammen to be activated as soon as he clears said protocols. Regardless, the veteran right-hander is now sidelined for the immediate future.

  • Padres' Craig Stammen: Hurls 3.2 scoreless frames

    Stammen hurled 3.2 scoreless innings in relief Sunday against St. Louis, allowing two hits and striking out three.

    Stammen pitched way earlier than he would've expected it since Jake Arrieta (groin) only recorded one out before departing the contest. This was a sort of bounce-back effort for the 37-year-old, as he had given up runs in two of his previous three outings while pitching at least three frames for the first time since mid-April. Stammen owns a 2.89 ERA through seven appearances (9.1 innings) this month.

  • Padres' Craig Stammen: Picks up win in relief

    Stammen (6-3) allowed one hit and one walk over one inning to earn the win over the Diamondbacks on Monday.

    Stammen relieved Chris Paddack with two outs in the fifth inning. He inherited runners on first and second, and a wild pitch allowed the runner from second base to score. However, he didn't surrender any runs of his own and he maintained the lead en route to earn the win. The 37-year-old has fired nine scoreless innings over his last six appearances. He continues to serve as a bulk-innings reliever while receiving occasional starts.

  • Padres' Craig Stammen: Goes two innings in start

    Stammen pitched two scoreless innings, allowing two hits and two walks while striking out one in the loss to the Phillies on Sunday. He did not factor into the decision.

    Stammen started another bullpen game, pitching the first two innings Sunday. It was his third appearance in a row -- and 11th out of his last 14 -- in which he didn't allow a run. The 37-year-old has a 3.07 ERA and 1.12 WHIP with 68 punchouts in 70.1 innings this season.

  • Padres' Craig Stammen: Serving as opener again

    Stammen will serve as the opener for Sunday's game against the Phillies, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Stammen has filled the same role on three previous occasions this season, making his first starts since 2010. He hasn't recorded more than six outs in an appearance since mid-April, so don't expect him to pitch too deep into Sunday's game. The Padres have yet to announce anyone as the bulk reliever following Stammen, so it's likely this will be a bullpen game.

  • Padres' Craig Stammen: Provides two scoreless frames

    Stammen pitched two scoreless innings on two hits while striking out one in the win over the Diamondbacks on Sunday. He did not factor into the decision.

    Stammen started another bullpen game Sunday, allowing just two singles over two innings. It was a much-needed effective performance for Stammen after he gave up seven earned runs over his previous 3.1 innings. The 37-year-old has a 3.21 ERA and 1.11 WHIP with 67 strikeouts over 67.1 innings this season.

  • Padres' Craig Stammen: Starting another bullpen game

    Stammen is slated to start a bullpen game Sunday versus the Diamondbacks.

    Stammen will pick up his second start in less than a week while the Padres attempt to get by with bullpen days for the fifth spot in the rotation until Chris Paddack (oblique) is cleared to return from the injured list. In his previous turn as an opener Tuesday against the Marlins, Stammen covered two innings and gave up four runs on six hits. Even if he fares better Sunday, the Padres likely won't let Stammen work beyond three innings.

  • Padres' Craig Stammen: Tagged with loss Friday

    Stammen (5-3) was charged with the loss Friday against Arizona as a result of serving up a walkoff home run to the only batter he faced (Daulton Varsho).

    Stammen came into the contest in the ninth inning with the score tied 2-2. He worked the count full before Varsho took him deep to right field for a walkoff homer. The loss continued Stammen's recent rough patch -- over his past four outings, the right-hander has given up seven runs on 12 hits and one walk over 3.1 innings.

  • Padres' Craig Stammen: Struggles as opener

    Stammen opened Tuesday's 6-5 victory over Miami, allowing four runs on six hits with two strikeouts in two innings. He didn't factor into the decision.

    Stammen struggled for the second straight outing, permitting four hits and three runs in the first and another in the second. San Diego rallied and eventually took the lead in the fourth inning to get Stammen off the hook for the loss, but the 37-year-old has now surrendered six runs in his last three innings to increase his ERA from 2.47 to 3.18 in the two-game span. The slump comes on the heels of nine innings without allowing an earned run.

  • Padres' Craig Stammen: Starting in bullpen game

    Manager Jayce Tingler said he's planning to have Stammen serve as the opening pitcher in a bullpen game Tuesday against the Marlins, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    San Diego lacks a true No. 5 starter at the moment while all of Chris Paddack (oblique), Dinelson Lamet (forearm) and Mike Clevinger (elbow) are on the injured list, so expect Tingler to turn to a number of pitchers to fill innings behind Stammen once he exits the game. Reiss Knehr covered three frames in a spot start for Paddack on Aug. 1, but he may not be ready to serve as a true bulk reliever after tossing two innings in relief Friday. Stammen hasn't worked more than two innings in any of his appearance since April 15, so the Padres likely won't ask him to record any more than six outs.

  • Padres' Craig Stammen: Earns fifth win in relief

    Stammen (5-2) fired a scoreless fourth inning, allowing one hit to earn the win over the Rockies on Sunday.

    Stammen entered the fourth inning with a three-run lead. He allowed a leadoff single to Brendan Rodgers but retired the next three batters in order. The 37-year-old had been almost perfect in his last six appearances, firing eight scoreless innings on six hits and a walk while striking out nine. On the season, Stammen is one of the Padres' bullpen leaders with a 2.51 ERA and a 0.98 WHIP in 61 innings.

  • Padres' Craig Stammen: Back from paternity list

    Stammen was reinstated from the paternity list Friday.

    Stammen had been away from the Padres since Tuesday following the birth of his child, but he should be available out of the bullpen going forward. The right-hander has posted a 2.16 ERA and 1.08 WHIP in 8.1 innings since the start of July. Left-hander Daniel Camarena was optioned to Triple-A El Paso in a corresponding move.

  • Padres' Craig Stammen: Placed on paternity list

    Stammen was placed on the paternity list prior to Tuesday's game against Atlanta.

    Stammen will miss Tuesday's contest and can remain on the paternity list for up three games. With that in mind, he'll likely be back in the Friars' bullpen by Friday's matchup against Miami. Miguel Diaz was recalled from Triple-A El Paso in a corresponding roster move.

  • Padres' Craig Stammen: Loses in relief

    Stammen (3-2) took the loss in Sunday's 3-1 defeat at the hands of the Rockies, allowing one run on two hits in 1.1 innings.

    Manager Jayce Tingler was forced to deploy his bullpen early following starter Ryan Weathers' injury, making Stammen the third of six San Diego relievers. The righty came in for the sixth and stayed for the seventh but was removed following a Chris Owings solo home run with one out. It was Stammen's second appearance of more than one inning in his last 14 games. He enters the All-Star break with a 2.89 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 52:7 K:BB Ratio.

  • Padres' Craig Stammen: Two innings in spot start

    Stammen allowed one earned run on three hits and one walk while striking out one across two innings Tuesday against the Reds. He did not factor into the decision.

    Stammen hadn't started a major-league game since 2010, but he was called upon to do so after Blake Snell was scratched with an illness. As expected, he didn't work deep into the game and threw only 29 pitches in what turned out to be a bullpen game for the Padres. Stammen should be expected to shift back to his typical role as a reliever in his next appearance.

  • Padres' Craig Stammen: Starting in place of sick Snell

    Stammen will start in place of Blake Snell (illness) on Tuesday against the Reds.

    Snell was scratched due to dehydration and stomach problems, according to manager Jayce Tingler. Stammen hasn't logged more than two innings since mid-April, so he almost certainly won't pitch past the third inning Tuesday. The Padres' pitching plans after Stammen aren't entirely clear, but all signs point toward a bullpen game.
