  • Padres' MacKenzie Gore: Starting Sunday

    Gore is starting Sunday's series finale against the Giants, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Gore pitched out of the bullpen Tuesday against the Phillies, and he allowed three hits and no walks while striking out four in three scoreless innings to earn the hold. The Padres haven't announced whether Gore will remain in the rotation following Sunday's start, but the southpaw has certainly performed well this season by posting a 2.17 ERA and 1.21 WHIP in 29 innings over six appearances (five starts).

  • Padres' MacKenzie Gore: Hurls three scoreless relief frames

    Gore picked up a hold against Philadelphia on Tuesday by throwing three scoreless innings, allowing three hits while striking out four.

    This was Gore's first professional relief appearance -- before Tuesday, he had started in all 61 of his minor- and major-league outings. The new role didn't seem to phase the 23-year-old, as he threw 30 of 40 pitches for strikes and limited the Phillies to three singles. Gore has been great as a starter this season, posting a 2.42 ERA and 1.23 WHIP over 26 innings, but he moved to the bullpen due to the return of Mike Clevinger and the imminent return of Blake Snell (groin). Gore is a candidate to move back into the rotation if the need arises, but he could spend substantial time in the bullpen throughout the season since the Padres will likely look to limit his workload.

  • Padres' MacKenzie Gore: Set to follow Clevinger on Tuesday

    Gore is scheduled to work behind starter Mike Clevinger in relief during Tuesday's game against the Phillies, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    At least to begin the week, Gore will be pitching out of the bullpen with the Padres set to return Blake Snell (groin) from the 10-day injured list to start Wednesday. San Diego could move back to a six-man rotation as it begins a stretch of 40 games in 42 days beginning Monday, but it's unclear if Gore or Nick Martinez -- who is also in the bullpen to begin the week -- will be reappointed to a starting role. From a performance standpoint, Gore proved to be deserving of a permanent starting role, as he submitted a 2.42 ERA and 28:9 K:BB across 26 innings through his first five outings. However, because he's just 23 years old and hasn't tossed more than 100 innings in a season since 2019, the Padres could be inclined to keep Gore in the bullpen as a means of managing his workload.

  • Padres' MacKenzie Gore: Next start uncertain

    Gore isn't scheduled to pitch during the three-game series against the Phillies, which begins Tuesday, and he could be available out of the bullpen, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    The 23-year-old will receive some extra rest coming off Monday's scheduled off day, with Mike Clevinger, Blake Snell (groin) and Yu Darvish set to start in Philadelphia. Gore has a 2.42 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 28:9 K:BB over 26 innings through his first five major-league starts, but it's not a significant surprise to see the Padres showing some caution with his workload after he was limited to 50.1 innings last season. The young lefty should rejoin the rotation before too long given his immediate success in the big leagues.

  • Padres' MacKenzie Gore: Stuck with first loss

    Gore (2-1) took the loss Monday as the Padres fell 6-0 to the Cubs, giving up three runs on seven hits over five innings. He struck out six without walking a batter.

    It was far from a poor effort from the rookie southpaw, who fired 57 of 89 pitches for strikes, but San Diego hitters managed only three hits on the night. Gore continues to impress with his improved control, and through his first five big-league starts he boasts a 2.42 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 28:9 K:BB in 26 innings. Even with Blake Snell (groin) closing in on his season debut, it will be tough for the Padres to pull Gore from the rotation.

  • Padres' MacKenzie Gore: Allows one run in start Wednesday

    Gore tossed 5.2 innings in the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader against Cleveland, allowing one run on four hits and three walks while striking out two. He did not factor in the decision.

    The rookie struggled with his control at times, as he threw only 59 of 100 pitches for strikes and issued a season-high three free passes. He didn't have his swing-and-miss stuff working, either -- Gore induced only four swinging strikes and picked up a mere two punchouts -- yet he navigated his way through nearly six frames allowing only one run. The southpaw's success was largely a result of preventing Cleveland from collecting any extra-base hits against him, and he hasn't served up a long ball since his first start of the campaign. The Padres have to feel good about Gore keeping things under control in a game during which he didn't have his best stuff, and he'll carry a 1.71ERA into his next start, which is slated to come at home against the Cubs next week.

  • Padres' MacKenzie Gore: Set to make fourth start Wednesday

    Gore is scheduled to start Wednesday's game in Cleveland, Bill Center of reports.

    Gore's inclusion in the pitching schedule this week implies that he won't be optioned to Triple-A El Paso when the Padres have to pare down their active roster from 28 to 26 men by Monday's deadline. Additionally, it indicates that the return of Mike Clevinger (knee) from the 10-day injured list to start Tuesday's series opener won't cost Gore his rotation spot either, at least in the short term. Nick Martinez is expected to start Thursday against the Marlins, and his performance in that outing along with how Gore fares Wednesday may dictate which of the two sticks around for what could be a six-man rotation for the Friars. The return of Clevinger gives the Padres six starters, so the team will likely have to move Gore or Martinez to the bullpen when Blake Snell (groin) is potentially ready to come off the IL as soon as May 8. To this point, Gore has soundly outperformed Martinez, submitting a 1.76 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 20:6 K:BB across 15.1 innings.

  • Padres' MacKenzie Gore: Electric over five innings

    Gore (2-0) picked up the win after tossing five innings, surrendering one run on five hits and two walks while striking out 10 in the victory over the Reds.

    Gore was fully in command Wednesday, notching a season-high 10 strikeouts while the only blemish against him came in the third inning on a Kyle Farmer RBI double. The rookie was able to take advantage of facing a weak Reds lineup in back-to-back outings, pitching 10 combined innings and allowing just one run with 17 strikeouts. Through three career starts, Gore has a 1.76 ERA and 1.17 WHIP with 20 punchouts over 15.1 innings.

  • Padres' MacKenzie Gore: First big-league win

    Gore (1-0) allowed four hits and two walks while striking out seven across five innings to earn the win Wednesday against the Reds.

    Gore ran into some trouble in the outing, particularly in the fourth inning when he avoided an earned run only after Joey Votto was thrown out at home. However, Gore also showed long stints of dominance, highlighted by a stretch from the second to third frames when he retired six straight hitters -- four of which came from strikeouts. The end result was his first career win. The former top prospect has now delivered a 1.74 ERA with 10:4 K:BB across his first 10.1 innings in the majors. Despite the strong showing, Gore could lose out on a rotation spot if Blake Snell (groin) is able to return from the injured list after a minimum stay.

  • Padres' MacKenzie Gore: Gets another start

    The Padres list Gore as their probable starting pitcher for Wednesday's game against the Reds in San Diego, AJ Cassavell of reports.

    With both Blake Snell (groin) and Mike Clevinger (knee) set to remain on the injured list during the upcoming week, Gore will receive at least one more turn through San Diego's rotation. The 23-year-old lefty didn't make many bats miss (three strikeouts) in his MLB debut Friday, but he did well to limit a potent Atlanta offense to two runs on three hits and two walks over 5.1 innings while taking a no-decision.

  • Padres' MacKenzie Gore: No-decision Friday

    Gore didn't factor into the decision Friday against Atlanta after allowing two runs on three hits and two walks while fanning three across 5.1 innings.

    Gore ended just two outs away from posting a quality start in what was a strong MLB debut for one of the best prospects in the Padres' farm system. His tenure with the big-league club will probably be tied to Blake Snell's recovery from a groin injury, but it shouldn't be ruled out to see Gore stick with the team if he performs well. Friday's outing was certainly a step in the right direction for the 23-year-old southpaw.

  • Padres' MacKenzie Gore: Recalled by San Diego

    Gore was recalled from Triple-A El Paso on Thursday.

    Gore will make his major-league debut Friday against Atlanta after Blake Snell (groin) was placed on the 10-day injured list. Snell's injury isn't believed to be particularly serious, so it's possible that Gore will return to the minors following a brief stint with the Padres. However, the 23-year-old is one of San Diego's top prospects and will likely have a chance to remain with the big-league club if he performs well as a fill-in option.

  • Padres' MacKenzie Gore: Confirmed to start Friday

    Padres manager Bob Melvin confirmed Gore will be called up from Triple-A El Paso to start Friday's game against Atlanta at Petco Park, AJ Cassavell of reports.

    San Diego will likely wait until later Thursday or on Friday to make the transaction official, with Blake Snell (groin) heading to the injured list in a corresponding move. The Padres don't believe Snell's injury is a major concern, so Gore could be in line for a short-term stint in the rotation regardless of how he performs in his MLB debut. The possibility exists that Gore could stick with San Diego as a multi-inning option out of the bullpen or occasional spot starter after Snell's return, which would allow the organization to keep the 23-year-old's workload in check while providing him an opportunity to get acclimated to the big-league level in anticipation of a full-time rotation role in 2023.
