  • Padres' Austin Adams: Yet to resume throwing

    Adams (forearm) hasn't thrown since going on the injured list April 13, AJ Cassavell of reports.

    Adams' injury was initially considered mild, but he was subsequently diagnosed with a forearm strain and eventually moved to the 60-day injured list. The fact that he hasn't yet thrown suggests that his absence will extend beyond the minimum. Adams seems unlikely to return until after the All-Star break.

  • Padres' Austin Adams: Shifts to 60-day IL

    The Padres transferred Adams (forearm) from the 10-day injured list to the 60-day injured list Thursday.

    Adams was already expected to be shut down for at least six weeks after getting a platelet-rich plasma injection just over two weeks ago to relieve pain in his strained right forearm, but the move to the 60-day IL ensures he'll be on the shelf for at least two months. By moving Adams to the 60-day IL, the Padres freed up a spot on the 40-man roster for outfielder Trayce Thompson, whose contract was selected from Triple-A El Paso ahead of Thursday's series finale with the Reds.

  • Padres' Austin Adams: Shut down six weeks

    Adams (forearm) will be shut down for at least six weeks, AJ Cassavell of reports.

    Adams hit the injured list Wednesday with a forearm strain, which was originally reported to be mild. After receiving a second opinion, he'll receive a PRP injection and will avoid throwing for at least six weeks. He'll still have to ramp back up at that point, so a move to the 60-day injured list would come as no surprise.

  • Padres' Austin Adams: Receiving second opinion

    Adams (forearm) recently underwent an MRI and is scheduled to receive a second opinion on his injury during the upcoming week, AJ Cassavell of reports.

    Adams was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday with an official diagnosis of a right forearm strain, but the fact that he's getting a second opinion on the injury suggests that season-ending Tommy John surgery could be on the table for the reliever. Even if Adams is able to avoid a procedure to address the injury, he'll almost certainly be sidelined for more than the minimum 10 days.

  • Padres' Austin Adams: Goes on IL with forearm strain

    The Padres placed Adams on the 10-day injured list Wednesday with a right forearm strain.

    Earlier Wednesday, manager Bob Melvin classified the injury Adams suffered in Tuesday's loss to the Giants as mild, but the right-hander's placement on the IL with a diagnosis of a forearm strain could suggest otherwise. For now, the Padres appear content to have Adams treat the injury through rest and rehab, but it's far from a given that he'll be ready to return from the IL when first eligible. San Diego recalled Pedro Avila from Triple-A El Paso to provide an extra right-handed arm in the bullpen while Adams is sidelined.

  • Padres' Austin Adams: Forearm injury viewed as mild

    Manager Bob Melvin clarified that the forearm injury that Adams picked up in his relief appearance in Tuesday's 13-2 loss to the Giants is considered mild, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.

    Adams will avoid a trip to the injured list for now, but those plans could change if the Padres aren't confident the right-hander will be ready to go for the Padres' upcoming four-game series with Atlanta that begins Thursday. He's made two relief appearances for San Diego so far this season, striking out two over 2.1 scoreless innings while also picking up a win.

  • Padres' Austin Adams: Exits with injury

    Adams was removed from Tuesday's game against the Giants with an apparent injury, AJ Cassavell of reports.

    Adams delivered 1.1 scoreless frames out of the bullpen before leaving the field with the training staff during the fifth inning. The specifics of the issue are unclear, and the 30-year-old should be considered day-to-day until the team updates his status.

  • Padres' Austin Adams: Earns win in relief

    Adams (1-0) was credited with the win over Arizona on Sunday, pitching a scoreless inning during which he walked three and struck out one.

    Blake Snell was expected to start Sunday's contest, but he was scratched just before the start of the game due to a groin injury, forcing the Padres to turn to a bevy of relievers to cover nine innings. The team got off to a quick five-run lead, and Adams was the fortunate reliever credited with the win as the second bullpen arm to enter the contest. The righty was far from flawless, however, as he threw only 10 of 24 pitches for strikes and walked three before getting out of his lone frame. Adams' control issues are well documented -- he incredibly set a live-ball era single-season record with 24 HBPs last season while also posting a 6.0 BB/9, yet he managed to record a respectable 4.10 ERA and notch 10 holds. He has the stuff to become an elite reliever, but the control issues remain a major obstacle.

  • Padres' Austin Adams: Struggles in Cactus League play

    Adams pitched 4.2 innings this spring, allowing four runs on five hits and three walks. He struck out six.

    Adams was characteristically wild in exhibition play, walking three and hitting one batter. His wildness last year was largely balanced by a 13.0 K/9 and .154 BAA. He's expected to fill a late-inning role again this season, though he's likely to find himself under plenty of stress if he isn't able to straighten out his control issues.

  • Padres' Austin Adams: Re-signed by Padres

    Adams and the Padres agreed to a one-year, $925,000 contract Tuesday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

    The relief pitcher will return for a third season with the Padres. In 2021, he appeared in 65 contests, compiling a 4.10 ERA and 1.20 WHIP while striking out 76 over 52.2 innings. Adams will once again be a late-inning option for the Padres after registering 10 holds last season.

  • Padres' Austin Adams: Plunks three Dodgers in one inning

    Adams allowed two runs on one hit, one walk and three hit batsmen while striking out one over one inning against the Dodgers on Sunday.

    The right-hander had trouble finding the plate in the outing, but he had little problem locating Dodgers batters. After starting off his appearance by plunking Will Smith, he surrendered a double, two more hit batsmen and a sacrifice fly to allow two runs to cross the plate on only one hit. The lack of control is nothing new for Adams -- in fact, by hitting three batters Sunday, he tied the live-ball-era single-season record with 23 HBPs in one season. Remarkably, the previous record-holder (Detroit's Howard Ehmke) threw 279.2 innings when he established the record in 1922, while Adams has needed only 48.2 frames to match the dubious record this season.

  • Padres' Austin Adams: Lit up by Marlins

    Adams retired only one batter Sunday against Miami while allowing four runs on two hits and two walks.

    The right-hander has been solid out of the bullpen this season, but he simply did not have his best stuff Sunday. Adams threw only seven of 16 pitches for strikes and walked a pair of batters in addition to giving up a double and a single. The four earned runs he allowed were his most in a single game this season and exceeded the total earned runs he had given up over his previous 41 outings combined. Adams' ERA jumped from 1.82 to 2.83 as a result of the poor performance.

  • Padres' Austin Adams: Picks up relief win

    Adams (3-2) allowed no hits and one walk in one scoreless inning to earn the win against the Phillies on Sunday.

    Adams relieved Blake Snell in the fifth inning, and he picked up his first win since May 29 since the Padres' offense provided plenty of run support early in the contest. The right-hander has allowed just one unearned run in 5.1 innings across his last seven appearances.

  • Padres' Austin Adams: Takes loss Friday

    Adams (2-2) was tagged with the loss against Philadelphia on Friday. He pitched one-third of an inning, giving up an unearned run on one hit and one walk while striking out one.

    The Padres rallied with two runs in in the ninth inning to send the game to extra frames but were unable to push another run across the plate in the top of the 10th. Adams was summoned to face the Phillies in the bottom of the frame and intentionally walked the first batter he faced before striking out Didi Gregorius. However, Brad Miller followed with a double to score the inherited runner, and Adams walked off the mound with his second loss of the season. The run he allowed was unearned, and the right-hander has surrendered only one earned run over his past 32 appearances covering 25.1 innings. He has racked up a 39:13 K:BB over that span.

  • Padres' Austin Adams: Takes first loss

    Adams (2-1) allowed a run on a hit and a walk while failing to record an out, taking the loss Wednesday versus Colorado.

    The right-hander walked Trevor Story on five pitches, and Story stole second base. Charlie Blackmon then hit a walkoff single that left Adams with his first loss of the season. He entered Wednesday with no runs allowed in his last five innings. Adams has a 2.25 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 36:12 K:BB across 24 innings this year. He's added five holds and a blown save across 30 appearances as a part of the bridge to closer Mark Melancon.

  • Padres' Austin Adams: Reinstated from 10-day IL

    Adams (elbow) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Saturday.

    Adams was shut down in early March due to a minor elbow issue, but he's been pitching at the alternate training site and has now been cleared to return to game action. The right-hander only made three relief appearances for the Padres in 2020 but could serve in a setup role this year if he can remain healthy. Nabil Crismatt was sent down in a corresponding move.

  • Padres' Austin Adams: Working way back at alternate site

    Adams (elbow) has been pitching at the Padres' alternate training site, but his return date remains undetermined, AJ Cassvell of reports.

    Adams was shut down with what has been described as a minor elbow issue in early March and was placed on the 10-day injured list near the end of spring training. He's eligible to come off the IL this Thursday, but there's no guarantee that he'll be activated immediately despite the fact that he has been throwing at the team's alternate site. "We don't [want] to send somebody back before they're ready -- either health or to their standards of being able to get Major League hitters out," manager Jayce Tingler stated when discussing Adams and fellow recovering reliever Pierce Johnson (groin).

  • Padres' Austin Adams: Ticketed for IL

    Padres manager Jayce Tingler said Monday that Adams will open the season on the 10-day injured list due to a minor elbow issue, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    After finishing the 2020 season on the IL while recovering from ACL surgery, Adams received full clearance ahead of spring training. The elbow issue surfaced soon thereafter, however, as Adams hasn't made a Cactus League appearance since March 7 due to the injury. TIngler stressed that Adams isn't dealing with any sort of long-term setback, so the right-hander could be ready to join the San Diego bullpen at some point shortly after the minimum 10 days.
