  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Takes loss Thursday

    Musgrove (8-5) allowed six earned runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out six across 4.2 innings to take the loss Thursday against the Rockies.

    Musgrove gave up four earned runs -- including a three-run homer to Ryan McMahon -- in the fifth inning and turned in his shortest outing of the campaign. Some regression was inevitable, but Musgrove has now allowed four or more earned runs in three of his last four starts -- translating to a 7.29 ERA. Despite the bumpy stretch, Musgrove has a 3.00 ERA and 120:28 K:BB across 120 frames on the season.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Extension finalized

    Musgrove and the Padres agreed to terms Monday on a five-year, $100 million contract extension, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports.

    Annie Heilbrunn of The San Diego Union-Tribune previously reported Friday that the right-hander and Friars had agreed to the parameters of the extension, and the two sides were apparently able to iron out the remaining details of the contract over the weekend. The deal keeps Musgrove in his hometown city through the 2027 campaign, his age-34 season. After a strong debut season with San Diego in 2021, Musgrove has raised the bar in 2022 by submitting a 2.65 ERA and 0.99 WHIP across 18 starts while also recently making his first All-Star Game appearance.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Tough-luck loser

    Musgrove (8-4) took the loss during Saturday's 7-4 defeat at the hands of the Twins, allowing two runs on four hits and two walks with eight strikeouts in six innings.

    Fresh off signing a rich contract extension, Musgrove limited the damage to a Byron Buxton solo shot in the fourth inning and another run on three baserunners in the fifth while tying his third-best mark of the season with eight strikeouts. Despite the quality start, San Diego could muster only one run early on, giving the 29-year-old his fourth straight losing decision after opening the season with eight consecutive wins. Musgrove's 2.65 ERA and 0.99 WHIP both rank 10th in MLB, and he'll look to get back in the win column against Colorado at midweek.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Gets $100 million extension

    Musgrove agreed to a five-year, $100 million contract extension with the Padres on Friday, Annie Heilbrunn of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    The 29-year-old righty was about to become a free agent after this season, and now he will be sticking around through what will likely be the rest of his prime years. Musgrove has a career-low 2.63 ERA and career-best 0.99 WHIP in 109.1 innings. He also has a chance to top his career high of 11 wins. (He's currently sitting with eight.)

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Slips up in sixth inning

    Musgrove (8-3) took the loss Sunday versus the Mets. He allowed four runs on five hits, two walks and a hit batter with four strikeouts in 5.1 innings.

    Musgrove matched Carlos Carrasco for five innings. The Mets pulled their starter to begin the sixth, but the Padres stuck with Musgrove, who put four batters on base while recording only one out before Nick Martinez relieved him. Three of Musgrove's last five starts have been less than spectacular, and he's allowed 18 runs in 30.1 innings in that span. He's seen his ERA rise to 2.63 with a 0.99 WHIP and 106:25 K:BB through 109.1 innings in 17 starts. The right-hander will look to get back on track in a projected start at home versus the Twins next week.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Yields five runs

    Musgrove allowed five runs on nine hits and a hit batsman and struck out four over five innings in a no-decision Wednesday versus the Rockies.

    Musgrove kept the ball in the yard, but that was about the only perk to his shaky start. This was the third time that he's allowed five or more runs in an outing this year, and it was the first time he failed to complete six innings. The right-hander finishes the first half with a 2.42 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 102:23 K:BB in 104 innings across 16 starts. He'll represent the National League at next week's All-Star Game, which marks Musgrove's first trip to the Midsummer Classic.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Dominant in no-decision

    Musgrove struck out six in seven scoreless innings while allowing a hit, four walks and hitting a batter in a 2-1 extra-inning win Thursday against San Francisco.

    Musgrove did not allow a hit until LaMonte Wade's leadoff double in the sixth inning. Wade was the only baserunner to make it past first base against Musgrove. It was the fifth time in 15 starts that the 29-year-old has tossed at least six innings without allowing a run. Hitters are hitting .193/.250/.326 against Musgrove on the season. His next start will likely be in the middle of next week in Colorado.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Fans 10 but takes loss

    Musgrove (8-2) took the loss against the Dodgers on Thursday, allowing three runs on five hits and one walk while striking out 10 over seven innings.

    Musgrove would have likely encountered a better fate if not for Justin Turner's presence in the lineup. The Dodgers' third baseman took the veteran hurler deep twice to account for all three runs against him. Despite that obstacle, Musgrove pitched well, earning a quality start and racking up 15 swinging strikes along with a season-high 10 punchouts. The right-hander began the campaign with a win in each of his first eight decisions but has now dropped two straight. He's been the Padres' best starter, however, posting a 2.25 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 92:19 K:BB over 92 innings overall.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Hits snag in sixth inning

    Musgrove (8-1) took his first loss of the season Thursday versus the Phillies. He allowed six runs on seven hits and a walk with one strikeout in six innings.

    Musgrove was cruising through five frames with just one run, two hits and a walk allowed. The sixth was a different story, and home runs by Kyle Schwarber and J.T. Realmuto were enough to send Musgrove to the loss in his first game back from the COVID-19 injured list. The right-hander had not allowed more than two earned runs in any of his previous starts, and he still has a stellar 2.12 ERA with a 0.95 WHIP and 82:18 K:BB in 85 innings overall. He'll look to get back on his regular schedule leading into next week's projected start versus the Dodgers.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Activated for Thursday's start

    Musgrove (undisclosed) was activated from the COVID-19 injured list ahead of his start against the Phillies on Thursday, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Musgrove landed on the COVID-19 injured list following his previous start last Thursday, but he quickly cleared the necessary protocols and will start versus Philadelphia. The right-hander has produced a quality start in al 12 of his outings this year and has a 1.59 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 81:17 K:BB across 79 innings.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Rejoining rotation Thursday

    Musgrove (undisclosed) will be reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list to start Thursday's game against the Diamondbacks, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.

    The 29-year-old cleared the COVID-19 protocols Tuesday and will end up having his turn in the starting rotation pushed back one day due to the brief absence. Musgrove has produced a quality start in each of his 12 outings this season and has a 1.59 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 81:17 K:BB across 79 innings.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Clears protocols

    Musgrove cleared COVID-19 protocols Tuesday, but it remains unclear when he'll be activated off the injured list, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Musgrove would be on turn to start Wednesday against Arizona, but Mike Clevinger appears to be set to take the hill that day. If the Padres stick to that plan, Musgrove could start Thursday or Friday against the Phillies, per Dennis Lin of The Athletic.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Able to throw

    Musgrove has been able to throw while on the COVID-19 injured list but is expected to miss at least one turn in the rotation, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    The Padres have yet to specify whether Musgrove tested positive for the virus himself, but the fact that he's at least able to throw is encouraging either way. He isn't expected to make his next scheduled start Wednesday against Arizona, with Mike Clevinger scheduled to take the hill instead, but he may have a chance to return for his next turn in the rotation.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Lands on COVID-19 injured list

    Musgrove was placed on the COVID-19 injured list Friday.

    The Padres didn't announce whether Musgrove tested positive for coronavirus himself, so it's unclear if he's merely at risk of missing one start or likely to miss several. He certainly didn't look ill Friday, as he struck out nine batters while allowing just two runs in seven innings against the Cubs. Reiss Knehr was called up to take his place on the roster.
