Top Dinelson Lamet News

  • Rockies' Dinelson Lamet: Claimed by Colorado

    Lamet was claimed off waivers by the Rockies on Friday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

    Lamet was acquired by the Brewers in the trade that sent Josh Hader to San Diego on Monday, but he was designated for assignment just two days later after the Brewers added more relief depth. Lamet has had a poor 2022 campaign, struggling to a 9.49 ERA and a 14.5 percent walk rate in 13 relief appearances at the big-league level, but the Rockies have little reason not to take a flier on a pitcher who has flashed plenty of potential both as a starter and as a reliever.

  • Brewers' Dinelson Lamet: DFA'd after acquisition

    The Brewers designated Lamet for assignment Wednesday, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    One of four players the Brewers received in return for closer Josh Hader in Monday's deal with the Padres, Lamet will be moved off the 40-man roster without having ever appeared for Milwaukee. According to Adam McCalvy of MLB.com, general manager David Stearns said that while the Brewers liked Lamet's live arm and strong prior track record of experience at the MLB level, finding a spot for him in the bullpen became too challenging in the wake of Tuesday's trade deadline. Lamet is under contract for $4.78 million in 2022, so the Brewers are hoping that salary may be enough to deter another team from claiming the right-hander off waivers, which would allow him to remain in the farm system at Triple-A Nashville.

  • Brewers' Dinelson Lamet: Moved to Milwaukee in megadeal

    The Brewers acquired Lamet, left-handers Taylor Rogers and Robert Gasser and outfielder Esteury Ruiz from the Padres on Monday in exchange for left-hander Josh Hader, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

    Lamet may have been the headliner for the Brewers had this trade happened a couple years ago when he was a front-of-the-rotation arm for the Padres, but after enduring a litany of elbow problems, he converted to a full-time relief role ahead of the 2022 campaign. The right-hander has been able to steer clear of the injured list so far this season, but he hadn't emerged as a trusted late-inning arm for the Friars, as he turned in a 9.49 ERA, 2.03 WHIP and 16:9 K:BB across 12.1 innings out of the bullpen. The Brewers will see if they can coax better results out of him in the final two months of the campaign before deciding whether to tender him a contract ahead of his final year of arbitration this winter.

  • Padres' Dinelson Lamet: Recalled by San Diego

    Lamet was recalled from Triple-A El Paso on Tuesday.

    Lamet spent the bulk of the last two-plus months in the minors, but he was brought back to take the roster spot of MacKenzie Gore (elbow), who landed on the 15-day injured list in the corresponding move. San Diego's starting rotation is full at the moment, so expect Lamet to work in relief like he did when he was with the big club earlier in the year.

  • Padres' Dinelson Lamet: Optioned to Triple-A

    Lamet was optioned to Triple-A El Paso on Monday.

    Lamet was called up by San Diego on Saturday, but he'll head back to the minors after he gave up three runs on four hits and two walks while striking out four in 2.1 innings against the Giants on Sunday. Right-hander Reiss Knehr was recalled Monday to take Lamet's place in the major-league bullpen.

  • Padres' Dinelson Lamet: Back in big leagues

    Lamet was recalled by the Padres on Saturday.

    Lamet was demoted in mid-May after struggling to a 9.72 ERA across his first 10 relief outings of the year. Both his 23.8 percent strikeout rate and his 16.7 percent walk rate represent career worsts. He's been far better in nine outings for Triple-A El Paso, cruising to a 0.93 ERA and 34.9 percent strikeout rate, though his 11.6 percent walk rate remains elevated. Craig Stammen (shoulder) landed on the injured list in a corresponding move.

  • Padres' Dinelson Lamet: Demoted to Triple-A

    Lamet was optioned to Triple-A El Paso on Friday, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Lamet allowed runs in only one of his first five appearances this season, but he'll head to the minors after giving up eight earned runs over three frames in his past five outings. Robinson Cano was added to the major-league roster in a corresponding move.

  • Padres' Dinelson Lamet: Continues to struggle

    Lamet allowed three runs on one hit and two walks over two-thirds of an inning in Saturday's loss to Miami.

    The right-hander had trouble finding the plate in the outing, throwing only 11 of 24 pitches for strikes and walking two batters. He has given up at least one earned run in three of his past four appearances to push his season ERA to 8.59. Once a promising starter, Lamet's stock has cratered due to injury, and his first campaign as a full-time reliever has yet to pan out as the Padres had hoped.

  • Padres' Dinelson Lamet: Light use out of bullpen thus far

    Lamet has made one relief appearance across the Padres' first five games, retiring the lone batter he faced en route to earning a hold in San Diego's April 8 win over Arizona.

    The Padres' decision to trade away starter Chris Paddack on Opening Day didn't change Lamet's outlook, as the 29-year-old is still beginning the season in a relief role. Lamet has thrown just one pitch so far this season, but Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune relayed that the right-hander threw at least a couple dozen of pitches while warming up in the bullpen in each of the last three contests. Manager Bob Melvin acknowledged after Monday's 4-2 win over the Giants that he needed to vary his reliever usage a bit, so it's possible that Lamet could gain some traction in a setup role in front of closer Taylor Rogers in the coming days.

  • Padres' Dinelson Lamet: Likely to work in relief

    Lamet is expected to open the season in the bullpen, though the Padres haven't officially decided on his role, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

    Lamet mostly worked in relief last season with nine starts in 22 appearances, and he finished with a 4.40 ERA, 1.49 WHIP and 57:22 K:BB across 47 innings. The right-hander was electric as a starter during 2020 with a 2.09 ERA and 93:20 K:BB in 12 starts, but he then had four stints on the injured list last season with elbow issues. A move to the bullpen could help keep Lamet healthy, and his stuff would play well as a closer. However, the 29-year-old, who rarely worked in relief prior to 2021, would need to get acclimated to regularly pitching out of the bullpen before taking on a high-leverage role, so he's unlikely to be a factor in the late innings until later in the season should the Friars opt to utilize him that way.

  • Padres' Dinelson Lamet: Signs for close to $5 million

    Lamet signed a one-year, $4.775 million contract with the Padres on Tuesday, avoiding arbitration, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Lamet will more than triple his salary despite the fact that he's coming off an injury-filled season where he was less than dominant. In nine starts and 13 relief appearances, he posted a mediocre 4.40 ERA, though his 27.3 percent strikeout rate was at least still strong.

  • Padres' Dinelson Lamet: Loses control in season finale

    Lamet allowed four runs on one hit and three walks while striking out one over one-third of an inning against the Giants on Sunday.

    The right-hander entered in the fourth inning of a one-run game and quickly let the contest get out of hand, issuing walks to three of the first four batters in the frame to load the bases before surrendering a run-scoring single. Lamet was then replaced by Craig Stammen, who allowed all three inherited runners to cross the plate. The poor outing capped a disappointing campaign for Lamet, who was one of the NL's top pitchers last season but was hampered by a lingering forearm injury throughout 2021. He finished the campaign with a 4.40 ERA, 1.49 WHIP and 57:22 K:BB across 47 innings, with 13 of his 22 appearances coming out of the bullpen.

  • Padres' Dinelson Lamet: Excels in multi-inning role

    Lamet tossed 2.1 scoreless innings in relief in Wednesday's 11-9 loss to the Dodgers, striking out two while allowing only one baserunner on a single.

    Since returning from a one-month stint on the injured list Sept. 1, Lamet has pitched exclusively in a relief role for San Diego. After stumbling in his initial relief appearances, Lamet has looked much sharper over the past two weeks. He's permitted one earned run over his last five outings while posting an 8:3 K:BB in eight innings.
