  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Another no-decision

    Musgrove gave up three runs (two earned) on four hits and three walks over six innings during Sunday's 7-3 win over Atlanta in 11 innings. He had six strikeouts and didn't factor in the decision.

    Atlanta tallied one run via a throwing error during the second inning, and the only runs Musgrove was responsible for in the contest came via a two-run home run from Dansby Swanson during the fourth frame. The right-hander otherwise held Atlanta to four singles, and he has yet to surrender more than two earned runs in any of his seven starts this season. Musgrove will carry a 2.20 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 47:6 K:BB into his next outing, which tentatively lines up for next weekend in San Francisco.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Eight strikeouts in no-decision

    Musgrove allowed two runs on five hits and a walk, striking out eight in seven innings in a 3-2 win Sunday over Miami. He did not factor into the decision.

    Musgrove retired the first eight batters he faced and did not allow a hit until the fourth inning. He allowed a run to score on a sacrifice fly in the fourth and a Jazz Chisholm solo homer to lead off the sixth. Over six starts, the righty has tossed at least six innings in each start and allowed two earned runs or less in each outing. With 39 innings pitched, the 29-year-old leads the National League. His next start is likely next weekend in Atlanta.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Whiffs eight in win

    Musgrove (4-0) allowed a run on seven hits and no walks while striking out eight in seven innings to earn the win over the Pirates on Sunday.

    Musgrove gave up hits in three of the first four innings during Sunday's matchup, but he didn't give up a run until the bottom of the seventh. The right-hander had to settle for a no-decision in his season debut, but he's picked up wins in his last four outings. Musgrove has lasted at least six innings in every start this year and has posted a 1.97 ERA and 0.91 WHIP in 32 innings. He tentatively lines up to make his next start at home against the Marlins next Sunday.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Picks up third win

    Musgrove (3-0) earned the win over the Reds on Tuesday. He was charged with five runs (two earned) on seven hits and one walk, striking out four in six innings.

    While Musgrove wasn't quite as dominant this time around against Cincinnati, the results were similar to last week. The right-hander cruised to a win, and he now has a 2.16 ERA and 25:2 K:BB in 25 innings this season. Blake Snell (groin) is set for another rehab outing Thursday, so Musgrove tentatively lines up for another start this week. He would get his former team in Pittsburgh.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Fans seven in win

    Musgrove (2-0) earned the win Tuesday, allowing two runs on four hits and one walk over 6.1 innings against the Reds. He struck out seven.

    The right-hander served up a homer to Tommy Pham in the first inning and an RBI single to Kyle Farmer in the sixth, but he was dominant in between. Musgrove walked the last batter he faced Tuesday -- Colin Moran. It was the first walk issued by Musgrove so far this season, giving him a 21:1 K:BB through 19 innings to go along with a 1.89 ERA. The Padres are listing Nick Martinez, Yu Darvish and Sean Manaea as the starters for this weekend's series against the Dodgers, meaning Musgrove will likely get these Reds again his next time out, this time in Cincinnati.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Cruises to win Thursday

    Musgrove (1-0) earned the win over Atlanta on Thursday, pitching 6.2 scoreless innings during which he allowed four hits and struck out six.

    The Padres jumped out to a five-run lead after two innings, allowing Musgrove to glide through a stress-free outing and secure his first win of the campaign. The right-hander allowed only one extra-base hit and registered a first-pitch strike against 17 of the 23 batters he faced. Over his first two starts of the campaign, Musgrove has posted a 14:0 K:BB while allowing just two runs over 12.2 frames. He'll look to keep rolling in his next start, which is tentatively scheduled to come at home against the Reds early next week.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Posts quality start

    Musgrove didn't factor into the decision Saturday against Arizona after allowing two runs on five hits while striking out eight across six innings.

    Musgrove was extremely sharp from a command perspective since 53 of his 74 pitches were strikes. While he couldn't deliver a clean outing, at least he posted a quality start -- something that hasn't happened often in the early days of the season. The veteran is coming off the best season of his career after posting a 3.18 ERA across 181.1 innings in 2021.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Could earn Opening Day start

    Either Musgrove or Yu Darvish will start against the Braves on Opening Day, according to manager Bob Melvin, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Musgrove was statistically the Padres' best pitcher last season, posting career-best marks with 203 strikeouts, a 3.18 ERA and a 1.08 WHIP. Meanwhile, Darvish enjoyed a strong start to his Padres tenure but faded in the second half, at least partly due to back and hip issues. The hurlers are expected to top the team's rotation again this season, and both are strong fantasy targets as third-or-fourth-tier starters.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Avoids arbitration with Friars

    Musgrove and the Padres agreed Tuesday on a one-year, $8.625 million contract to avoid arbitration, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.

    Musgrove, who is scheduled to make his Cactus League debut Tuesday against the Guardians, will be receiving a $4.175 million salary increase from 2021. After being acquired from the Padres last winter, Musgrove was the team's top starter in what was a breakout season for the 29-year-old. He covered a career-high 181.1 innings over 32 appearances (31 starts), finishing with a 3.18 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 203:54 K:BB.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Stellar in final start

    Musgrove limited the Giants to one run on three hits with four strikeouts over five innings Saturday. He did not factor in the decision.

    After a wobbly September (5.14 ERA in five starts), Musgrove closed out his 2021 season with a terrific showing by limiting San Francisco to a Kris Bryant RBI single in the second inning. He also put up a zero in the walk column for the first time since May 30. Musgrove went 11-9 in his first season in San Diego and established personal bests in ERA (3.18), innings pitched (181.1), strikeouts (203), WHIP (1.08) and opponents' batting average (.213). He also threw a pair of shutouts, the first of his career.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: No-decision Sunday

    Musgrove didn't factor into the decision Sunday against Atlanta after allowing three runs on seven hits and three walks across five innings, striking out nine.

    Musgrove hadn't fanned that many batters since he posted two back-to-back nine-strikeout performances in late August, but the fact that he's also issued at least three walks in four straight appearances might be a bit concerning. The veteran hurler has also given up at least three runs in each of his last four appearances and owns a 5.14 ERA across five appearances this month.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Surrenders five runs

    Musgrove got a no-decision in Tuesday's 6-5 defeat at the hands of the Giants, allowing five runs on eight hits and three walks with six strikeouts in 5.2 innings

    Facing Kevin Gausman and the Giants in consecutive turns, Musgrove pitched well early and was staked to a 4-1 lead but struggled the third time through the order, surrendering four runs combined over the fifth and sixth innings. The subpar outing ends a five-game stretch where he permitted no more than three runs in any start. Musgrove now sports a 5.09 ERA across four September turns. He currently lines up to face Atlanta on Sunday.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Earns win over Giants

    Musgrove (11-9) earned the win over San Francisco on Wednesday, allowing three runs on five hits and three walks while striking out four over six innings.

    For his second straight outing, Musgrove yielded exactly three runs over six frames, but whereas his last start resulted in a loss, the Padres gave the right-hander enough run support to notch a win Wednesday. The 28-year-old wasn't overpowering -- he induced only six swinging strikes and picked up just four punchouts -- but he was able to register his eighth quality start in his past 10 appearances. Musgrove will carry a 2.99 ERA into his next start, which is likely to come in a rematch with San Francisco -- this time at home -- early next week.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Gets no offensive support Friday

    Musgrove (10-9) suffered the loss against the Dodgers on Friday, pitching six innings and allowing three runs on four hits and five walks while striking out seven.

    The performance was not among Musgrove's best as a Padre -- he issued a season-high five walks and gave up three runs for the first time since Aug. 14 -- but he still managed to secure his third quality start in his past four outings. However, San Diego's offense remained stale against the division-rival Dodgers, resulting in the right-hander's ninth loss. Musgrove's so-so 10-9 record doesn't do justice to his effectiveness on the campaign, as he has posted a 2.93 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 180:45 K:BB across 159.2 innings. His next start is likely to come in San Francisco next week.
