  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Moved to 60-day IL

    The Padres transferred Musgrove (shoulder) to the 60-day injured list Saturday.

    Musgrove has been on the injured list since early August due to inflammation in his right shoulder. He was able to resume throwing last Friday, but with the Padres officially eliminated from playoff contention, his focus has shifted to getting ready for 2024. Musgrove's spot on the 40-man roster will be filled by Chandler Seagle, who was selected from Triple-A El Paso on Saturday.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Resumes throwing

    Musgrove (shoulder) restarted a throwing program Friday and will pace himself moving forward according to the Padres' chances of making the postseason, Annie Heilbrunn of The San Diego Union-Tribube reports.

    Musgrove was eased off his throwing program in mid-September with San Diego apparently out of playoff contention, though the hurler clarified Friday that he was always going to resume throwing Sept. 23. However, the plan moving forward may have changed a bit with the Padres reeling off eight straight wins and getting to within four games of the final NL wild-card spot. They still have a pretty daunting task in trying to make up that ground with just over a week left in the regular season, but it appears Musgrove may ramp back up more quickly than expected if the team is able to cut further into the deficit. Heilbrunn reports that should the pieces fall into place and the Padres were to qualify for the playoffs, Musgrove would look to contribute out of the bullpen.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Season over

    Musgrove (shoulder) will not pitch again in 2023, AJ Cassavell of reports.

    Musgrove had his throwing program slowed, meaning he won't be able to return again this season. He reportedly hasn't suffered a setback, but the Padres instead have opted to take a conservative approach given that they've fallen out of playoff contention. Musgrove will end the campaign with a 3.05 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and a 97:21 K:BB across 97.1 frames.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Not yet throwing off mound

    Musgrove (shoulder) continues to play catch but has yet to throw off a mound as of Tuesday, reports.

    The Padres officially shut Yu Darvish (elbow) down for the season Tuesday, and though the team hasn't made any statements about Musgrove's status, the right-hander's return from the 15-day injured list is considered "highly unlikely," given where he stands in his recovery from right shoulder inflammation along with San Diego's unfavorable position in the National League wild-card race. Assuming Musgrove isn't activated before the season ends Oct. 1, he'll finish his third year in San Diego with a 10-3 record, 3.05 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 97:21 K:BB over 97.1 innings.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Set to play catch Friday

    Musgrove (shoulder) will play catch Friday, reports.

    It will be the first time he's done any throwing since he landed on the injured list at the beginning of the month with right shoulder capsule inflammation. Musgrove will require several flat-round sessions before being cleared for mound work, and whether he makes it back this season remains to be seen. "I know he's looking forward to it," Padres manager Bob Melvin said. "But we want to kind of push the brakes a little bit. ... It's not going to be an accelerated path forward. It's going to be several of those before he would even consider getting on a mound, so we're still a ways away."

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: To resume throwing in late August

    Musgrove (shoulder) is expected to begin playing catch around Aug. 24, Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Musgrove is entering the second week of a three-week shutdown period that followed his Aug. 4 placement on the injured list due to inflammation in his right shoulder capsule. The best-case scenario is that he returns to the Padres' rotation in mid-September, but he'll have to avoid even minor setbacks. It should also be noted that San Diego is currently at risk of falling out of NL Wild Card contention, which could affect the motivation here.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Shut down for three weeks

    Musgrove was diagnosed with inflammation in his right shoulder capsule Friday and placed on the 15-day injured list. He will be shut down for at least three weeks, AJ Cassavell of reports.

    Shoulder soreness kept Musgrove from making his scheduled start Wednesday against Colorado, and the issue has now been identified as something that will keep him on the shelf for a considerable amount of time. The Padres haven't yet ruled out Musgrove for the rest of the season, but they might need the incentive of a late playoff push to put him back on the mound in 2023.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Scratched with sore shoulder

    Musgrove has been scratched from his scheduled start Wednesday against the Rockies due to "minor" right shoulder soreness, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    At least for the time being, the Padres don't view Musgrove's shoulder issue as anything too serious and believe he can avoid a trip to the injured list. Musgrove is tentatively in line to make his next turn through the rotation either next Tuesday or Wednesday in Seattle. Nick Martinez, who has been working out of the bullpen since late April, will make a spot start in Colorado in Musgrove's stead.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Tosses six scoreless innings

    Musgrove (10-3) allowed four hits and two walks over six shutout frames Friday, striking out five and earning a win over Texas.

    Musgrove gave up two extra-base hits and had to work around some tight spots but still turned in his fourth scoreless appearance of the year. It took him about a month to shake off the early season rust, but he's been incredible since then; over his last 12 starts, Musgrove is 9-1 with a 1.84 ERA. On the year, his ERA sits at 3.05 to go with a 97:21 K:BB. His next start is projected to be in Colorado.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Falls to Detroit

    Musgrove (9-3) took the loss Sunday, allowing three runs on seven hits and a walk over six innings against the Tigers. He struck out six.

    The Tigers got to Musgrove early Sunday, taking an early lead on Spencer Torkelson's solo homer in the first inning before tacking on two more runs in the third. Musgrove would eventually settle in and finish with a quality start, his eighth in a row, though he also took his first loss since May 20. The 30-year-old right-hander has been excellent since the start of June, pitching to a 2.00 ERA over his last 11 starts. Overall, Musgrove sports a 3.25 ERA with a 1.15 WHIP and 92:19 K:BB through 16 starts (91.1 innings) this season.
