  • Padres' Matt Strahm: Shifts to 60-day IL

    Strahm (knee) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Wednesday.

    Strahm landed on the injured list with right knee inflammation Aug. 18, and he'll miss the remainder of the regular season as a result. The left-hander made six appearances (one start) in the majors this year and recorded an 8.10 ERA and 2.40 WHIP in 6.2 innings. His move to the 60-day IL clears space on the 40-man roster for Taylor Williams (knee), who was reinstated from the 60-day IL on Wednesday.

  • Padres' Matt Strahm: Sidelined with knee inflammation

    The Padres placed Strahm on the 10-day injured list Wednesday with right knee inflammation.

    Given that Strahm required patellar tendon surgery on the same knee last October and didn't debut for the Padres until Aug. 3 while recovering from the procedure, it's not an encouraging sign that he's back on the IL two weeks later with a related injury. Though the fact that Strahm is dealing with inflammation rather than a sprain of his right knee suggests his injury isn't too significant, the Padres are still expected to proceed cautiously with him and could hold him out for longer than the 10-day minimum. In a corresponding move, the Padres activated newly signed starting pitcher Jake Arrieta, who will take the hill Wednesday against the Rockies for his San Diego debut.

  • Padres' Matt Strahm: Ticketed for IL

    The Padres plan to place Strahm on the 10-day injured list Wednesday due to an unspecified issue, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    San Diego will confirm the transaction shortly before Wednesday's series finale with the Rockies that begins at 3:10 p.m. ET, at which time more information about Strahm's injury should become available. The right-hander had spent most of the season on the 60-day IL while recovering from the right knee surgery he required last October, but it's unclear if he suffered a related setback. Strahm made his first five appearances with San Diego as a reliever before he was deployed as an opening pitcher in Tuesday's contest. He was the pitcher of record in the Padres' 7-3 loss, giving up a run on four hits and no walks over 1.1 innings before turning the game over to the bullpen.

  • Padres' Matt Strahm: Labors as opener

    Strahm (0-1) allowed one run on four hits with one strikeout through 1.1 innings, taking the loss in Tuesday's 7-3 defeat to Colorado.

    Strahm served as the opener for the Padres' bullpen game Tuesday and never found his groove at Coors Field. He needed 44 pitches to get four outs and worked himself into three consecutive 3-2 counts to start the game. The run he conceded came on a Charlie Blackmon groundout that scored Connor Joe. As this was just a spot start, the left-hander will likely settle back into a role in the bullpen.

  • Padres' Matt Strahm: Starting Tuesday

    Strahm will start Tuesday's game against the Rockies.

    Strahm has made five appearances since he was reinstated from the injured list in early August, and he's recorded an 8.44 ERA and 2.25 WHIP in 5.1 innings. The southpaw will make his first start since 2019 during Tuesday's contest and likely won't be kept in the contest for more than a few innings. He'll likely return to a relief role following the start.

  • Padres' Matt Strahm: Activated from IL

    Stram (knee) was reinstated from the 60-day injured list Tuesday.

    Strahm dominated during three rehab appearances, striking out seven while allowing one earned run on two hits and zero walks over 3.2 innings. He will assume a middle-relief role for San Diego down the stretch.

  • Padres' Matt Strahm: Due back Tuesday

    Manager Jayce Tingler said the Padres plan to reinstate Strahm (knee) from the 60-day injured list ahead of the team's two-game series in Oakland that begins Tuesday, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

    Sidelined all season while recovering from the patellar tendon surgery he required for his right knee last October, Strahm kicked off a minor-league rehab assignment just under two weeks ago and has apparently convinced the Padres that he's healthy and ready to contribute out of the bullpen. He was particularly sharp over his last two appearances for Triple-A El Paso, firing 2.2 perfect innings and striking out four between the outings. Given that eight other San Diego relievers currently reside on the IL, Strahm could get the opportunity to pitch high-leverage innings out of the bullpen right away for the big club.

  • Padres' Matt Strahm: Thriving in rehab stint

    Strahm (knee) has struck out seven batters in 3.2 innings across three appearances with Triple-A El Paso. He has allowed two hits and two runs, though both have been unearned.

    In the left-hander's most recent appearance, he tossed 1.2 perfect innings and threw 17 of 22 pitches for strikes Friday. He has yet to pitch this season after undergoing knee surgery last October, but he could be mere days away from rejoining the big-league bullpen.

  • Padres' Matt Strahm: Set to start rehab assignment

    Strahm (knee) is slated to begin a rehab stint with Triple-A El Paso on Friday, per MLB.com.

    Strahm has yet to pitch this season after undergoing knee surgery last October. He has thrown a handful of bullpen sessions, however, and recently advanced to tossing a simulated game. Strahm will likely need a fair amount of time to get his arm game-ready considering his lengthy layoff, but he appears on track to rejoin the Padres in the coming weeks. He could emerge as a key addition to the bullpen after registering a 2.61 ERA and 0.87 WHIP across 20.2 innings last season.

  • Padres' Matt Strahm: Advances to simulated game

    Strahm (knee) threw a simulated game Saturday, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Strahm has been out all year while working his way back from October knee surgery. He appears to be closing in on a return, but he could need a handful of rehab appearances given the length of his absence.

  • Padres' Matt Strahm: Still feeling effects of surgery

    Strahm has thrown three light bullpens since mid-June and has felt some soreness in his surgically repaired right knee after each session, MLB.com reports.

    The lingering soreness hasn't prevented Strahm from throwing, but it represents the considerable buildup that he'll need to undertake before being able to rejoin the big-league club. The left-hander isn't expected back until sometime after the All-Star break.

  • Padres' Matt Strahm: Rehab continues

    Strahm (knee) has joined the major-league training staff to continue his rehab process, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Strahm has been working on bullpens and strengthening in Arizona recently, but he's now back in San Diego to work with the big-league staff. The southpaw has been on the injured list since the start of the season as he continues to recover from patellar tendon surgery on his right knee in October, and he remains without a clear timetable for his return.

  • Padres' Matt Strahm: Still no timeline for return

    Strahm (knee) has been rehabbing in Arizona but remains without an established timeframe to return, Bill Center of FriarWire reports.

    Strahm is currently on the 60-day injured list after undergoing knee surgery during the offseason. He is expected to rejoin the team sometime this summer but still has many steps to take before that can happen. "The last couple of weeks, the knee has been better and bouncing back better. He's taking steps forward. No timeline quite yet. He has to do some pitching," manager Jayce Tingler explained Saturday.

  • Padres' Matt Strahm: Shifts to 60-day IL

    Strahm (knee) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Saturday.

    The 29-year-old continues his recovery from patellar tendon surgery on his right knee in October and won't be retaking the field in the near future. Strahm didn't pitch at any point during spring training and will be unavailable until at least the start of June.

  • Padres' Matt Strahm: Headed to IL

    Padres manager Jayce Tingler confirmed Monday that Strahm (knee) will begin the season on the injured list, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Considering that Strahm hasn't pitched at any point during the Padres' Cactus League schedule, his move to the IL was fully expected. The 29-year-old is still ramping up from the patellar tendon surgery he required last October, and at this point he remains without a clear timetable to make his 2021 debut.

  • Padres' Matt Strahm: Won't be ready by Opening Day

    Strahm (knee) will be out past Opening Day, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

    Strahm is still recovering from the patellar tendon surgery he underwent on his right knee last October. Though there was initially hope that he'd be able to ramp up by Opening Day, it is now clear that the left-hander will need to miss the start of the campaign. When he does return to action, Strahm should immediately fill an important spot in a Padres bullpen that has already been reduced by injuries.

  • Padres' Matt Strahm: Opening Day status in question

    Strahm (knee) could miss the start of the regular season, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Strahm underwent patellar tendon surgery on his right knee in late October and has been playing catch during the first few days of spring training. However, he isn't expected to start throwing bullpens until at least next week. While the southpaw is pushing himself to be ready in time for Opening Day, he also acknowledged that he could miss the first several games in order to preserve his long-term health. Strahm posted a 2.61 ERA and 0.87 WHIP with three holds over 20.2 innings with the Padres last season.

  • Padres' Matt Strahm: Remaining with Padres

    Strahm (knee) signed a one-year, $2 million contract to avoid arbitration with the Padres on Wednesday, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

    The 29-year-old has been a reliable bullpen piece for the Friars over the past few years, and he had a 2.61 ERA, 0.87 WHIP and 15:4 K:BB with three holds over 20.2 innings last season. Strahm underwent surgery to repair the patellar tendon in his right knee during October, but he's expected to be ready for the start of spring training.

  • Padres' Matt Strahm: Slated to undergo surgery

    Strahm will undergo surgery to repair the patellar tendon in his right knee, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Strahm was bothered by a knee issue for much of the 2020 season, but he's expected to be ready for spring training following his surgery. He underwent a similar surgery on his left knee in 2017. The southpaw was effective over a limited sample in 2020, recording a 2.61 ERA and 0.87 WHIP over 20.2 innings.
