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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less

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.... See More ... See Less
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....

Padres' Joe Musgrove: Whiffs nine in win
Musgrove (8-0) allowed two runs on five hits and a walk while striking out nine in seven innings to earn the win over the Cubs on Thursday.
Musgrove tossed 14 scoreless innings over his last two starts, but he allowed runs in the first and second innings during Thursday's outing at Wrigley Field. However, he struck out a season-high nine batters and got help from the Padres' offense to pick up his third consecutive win. The 29-year-old has yet to be charged with a loss this season and has been especially dominant over his last five starts, posting a 0.79 ERA and 34:11 K:BB in 34 innings during that time. He tentatively lines up to make his next start at home against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Joe Musgrove: Stays hot versus Rockies
Musgrove (7-0) allowed four hits and two walks while striking out eight over six shutout innings to earn the win Friday over the Rockies.

The right-hander continues to deal when he's on the mound -- he owns a 1.50 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 72:16 K:BB through 72 innings this season. He'll look to keep this run of dominance going on the road versus the Cubs next week.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Joe Musgrove: Twirls gem to beat Brewers
Musgrove (6-0) threw eight shutout innings Friday versus the Brewers, allowing just one hit, three walks and a hit batter while striking out six to earn the win.
Musgrove lost the bid for a perfect game in the third inning when he plunked Victor Caratini, but he was able to carry a no-hitter into the eighth inning. Kolten Wong broke that up with a two-out double. With just one run allowed in his last 21 innings, Musgrove is absolutely locked in lately despite allowing multiple walks in each of his last four starts. He's been stellar all year with a 1.64 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 64:14 K:BB through 66 innings overall. He's projected to for a home start versus the Rockies next week.... See More ... See Less

Unfortunately, Taylor Rogers blew the save in the ninth as San Diego lost a game Musgrove started for the first time all season. The 29-year-old carries a dazzling 1.86 ERA and 0.98 WHIP -- both of which rank top 10 in MLB -- into a start against Milwaukee next weekend.... See More ... See Less

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.... See More ... See Less

His next start is likely next weekend in Atlanta.... See More ... See Less

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.
