Top Dinelson Lamet News

  • 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.

  • Padres' Dinelson Lamet: Struggles in relief appearance

    Lamet (2-4) took the loss in Sunday's 8-0 defeat at the hands of the Dodgers, allowing one run on one hit and two walks with one strikeout in two-thirds of an inning.

    Lamet was deployed earlier than expected when starter Blake Snell went down with an injury after just 11 pitches. He entered a scoreless game in the fourth inning as San Diego's third pitcher and retired the first two Dodgers he faced before surrendering a Corey Seager home run and two walks, prompting his removal. San Diego escaped the jam but couldn't touch Max Scherzer all game, giving Lamet the loss. The Padres will need him to pitch better than his 7.36 September ERA down the stretch run if he's going to have a role in meaningful games.

  • Padres' Dinelson Lamet: Strikes out side in return

    Lamet returned from the 10-day injured list Wednesday and pitched a scoreless inning out of the bullpen while allowing one hit and striking out three.

    Lamet was finally activated ahead of Wednesday's game after missing over two months due to forearm and hip injuries. He allowed a double to Josh Rojas but was able to strike out the side and leave Rojas stranded in scoring position. Lamet acted as a starter earlier in the year but is expected to serve out of the bullpen for the time being, as the Padres should have a fully healthy rotation with Jake Arrieta (hamstring) expected to return and start Friday's game against the Astros.

  • Padres' Dinelson Lamet: Officially reinstated Wednesday

    Lamet (hip/forearm) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Wednesday.

    Lamet concluded a rehab assignment last week and will rejoin the major-league club after he threw live batting practice Wednesday. The right-hander had been sidelined since late June due to forearm and hip issues. Although he served mainly as a starter earlier in the season, he'll take on a bullpen role now that he's back to full health.

  • Padres' Dinelson Lamet: Could return Wednesday

    Lamet (hip/forearm) threw live batting practice Monday and is lined up to return to the Padres on Wednesday, per MLB.com.

    The right-hander recently wrapped up a rehab stint with Low-A Lake Elsinore and now looks ready to return to the majors for the first time since late June. Lamet has been limited to just 11 outings this season due to injury, racking up a 3.67 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 38:11 K:BB across 34.1 frames. Nine of his appearances have come as a starter, but he'll be working out of the bullpen for what's likely to be the remainder of the season upon rejoining the big club.

  • Padres' Dinelson Lamet: Tosses scoreless rehab inning

    Lamet (hip/forearm) pitched a scoreless and hitless inning for Low-A Lake Elsinore on Tuesday, hitting a batter while also recording a strikeout.

    The right-hander hit the first batter he faced in the brief appearance but recovered to retire the next three hitters. This was his first game action since Aug. 4, as he has been working his way back from a hip infection. Lamet is on track for an early-September return to the big club, at which point he'll join the team's bullpen.

  • Padres' Dinelson Lamet: Begins rehab assignment

    Lamet (forearm/hip) is slated to begin a rehab assignment with Low-A Lake Elsinore on Tuesday, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Lamet hasn't pitched in a big-league game since late June because of right forearm inflammation. He appeared close to being activated after making a rehab outing in early August, but a hip infection ultimately postponed his return. He's since resumed throwing off a mound, and he could join the Padres' bullpen within the next couple of weeks if he's able to successfully get a few minor-league outings under his belt.

  • Padres' Dinelson Lamet: Resumes throwing

    Lamet (hip) threw a bullpen session Thursday, per MLB.com.

    The right-hander had been on the shelf since Aug. 12 while recovering from a hip infection, but he has now started to ramp back up in anticipation of a return. Lamet could be ready to rejoin the Padres at the beginning of September, and he is expected to pitch out of the bullpen once activated.

  • Padres' Dinelson Lamet: Dealing with hip infection

    Lamet (forearm) has undergone a procedure to clean out a hip infection, Bill Center of Padres.com reports.

    The good news is that the injury has nothing to do with Lamet's forearm. He's reportedly made steady progress in his return from the arm issue, most recently tossing a 20-pitch batting practice session Tuesday. However, manager Jayce Tingler did admit that Lamet's hip procedure will sideline him for at least another week. No further timeline has been established.

  • Padres' Dinelson Lamet: Faces hitters again Tuesday

    Lamet (forearm) tossed approximately 20 pitches in a live batting practice session Tuesday, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Lamet has now faced hitters in live BP on two occasions since making a rehab appearance for High-A Lake Elsinore on Aug. 4, and manager Jayce Tingler suggested the simulated outings could be an adequate alternative to a minor-league rehab assignment as the right-hander builds back up from the latest setback with his forearm. All comments from Tingler indicate that Lamet will be deployed out of the bullpen upon returning from the injured list, with the 29-year-old expected to first work in the middle innings before potentially gaining traction as a back-end arm. Since Lamet won't be a candidate for saves with Mark Melancon having locked down the closer job, he likely isn't worth holding in the majority of fantasy leagues.

  • Padres' Dinelson Lamet: Could return soon

    Lamet (forearm) will throw a live batting practice session Saturday, and the Padres will then decide whether to activate him or ask him to make additional minor-league rehab appearances, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Lamet threw an inning in relief for Low-A Lake Elsinore on Wednesday, and Padres manager Jayce Tingler indicated that he was encouraged with the outing. The right-hander hasn't pitched in a big-league game since June 26 but won't require extensive time to ramp up since he'll transition to the bullpen upon this return to the majors. If the organization determines that Lamet does not need additional rehab appearances, he could be activated next week.

  • Padres' Dinelson Lamet: Tosses one inning in rehab outing

    Lamet (forearm) hurled one inning for Low-A Lake Elsinore on Wednesday, allowing one run on one hit and a walk while striking out two.

    The right-hander served up a solo home run and a four-pitch walk while throwing nine of 16 pitches for strikes. He has not pitched in the majors since June 26, and it's unclear how long his minor-league rehab stint will last. When he returns to the Padres, Lamet is expected to work out of the bullpen.

  • Padres' Dinelson Lamet: Rehab assignment on tap

    Lamet (forearm) will throw a rehab inning at Low-A Lake Elsinore on Wednesday, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Lamet has been on the injured list for just over a month due to right forearm inflammation, but he's faced hitters across the last week and will now return to game action in the minors. The Padres have said that the right-hander will likely take on a bullpen role once he's reinstated from the 10-day IL, and his rehab stint will give the team an opportunity to see how effective he can be as a reliever.
