Padres' Reiss Knehr: Misses out on Opening Day roster
The Padres optioned Knehr to Triple-A El Paso on Thursday.
Even though they swapped out two pitchers (Chris Paddack and Emilio Pagan) for one (Taylor Rogers) in a trade with the Twins earlier in the day, the Padres didn't have room in the rotation or bullpen for Knehr on the Opening Day roster. The 25-year-old lefty will likely prepare to fill a starting role for El Paso and stay stretched out in the event the Padres require reinforcement for the rotation at some point down the road....

Padres' Reiss Knehr: Draws praise from manager
Padres manager Bob Melvin indicated recently that he's pleased with Knehr's work this spring, per Bill Center of FriarWire. "I like Knehr's stuff. He throws strikes, has a good breaking ball. He's got late movement to it. He's got a lot of confidence in what he is doing now based on the fact that he was in the big leagues last year. I like his progress," Melvin stated.
Knehr got into one Cactus League game this spring, allowing one run (on a solo homer) over two innings while striking out three. However, he also worked on his pitching on the back fields and evidently impressed his manager. Knehr posted a 4.97 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 20:20 K:BB across 29 innings for San Diego last season, and it's not clear if he'll have a spot on on the 2022 Opening Day roster.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Reiss Knehr: Yields two runs in loss
Knehr (1-2) allowed two runs on three hits and two walks over three innings Sunday, striking out two and taking a loss against the Giants.
Knehr kept the Giants off the board for two innings to start the game before Buster Posey brought home two runs with a third-inning single. The 24-year-old rookie finished the 2021 season with a 4.97 ERA and a 20:20 K:BB through 29 innings. He went 0-2 with a 6.30 ERA over his last four outings. He'll have a shot at making the staff next season, though the starting rotation for the contending Padres seems likely to be staffed by more experienced arms.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Reiss Knehr: Starting season finale
Knehr is listed as the Padres' starting pitcher for Sunday's season finale in San Francisco.
After being recalled from Triple-A El Paso on Sept. 28, Knehr covered two innings out of the bullpen later that day against the Dodgers, but he hasn't been used since. He'll get the chance to fill the opening in the rotation for the final game of the season, but because he hasn't covered more than four innings in a game in the majors or minors since late July, the 24-year-old righty isn't expected to work deep into Sunday's start....

Padres' Reiss Knehr: Rejoins big-league club
Knehr was recalled from Triple-A El Paso on Tuesday, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Knehr joined the big-league club to start during Friday's pseudo-doubleheader, and he returned to El Paso after giving up three runs across four innings. The 24-year-old has a 5.25 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 15:15 K:BB over 24 major-league innings this season. Craig Stammen (undisclosed) was placed on the injured list in a corresponding move.... See More ...

Padres' Reiss Knehr: Handed first loss
Knehr (1-1) took the loss in Friday's 4-0 defeat against Atlanta, allowing three runs on five hits with one strikeout in four innings.
Making his first appearance since Aug. 24, Knehr surrendered three runs in the game's first two innings, which was enough for the loss in a game where San Diego failed to score. The 24-year-old joined the big-league roster as part of doubleheader featuring a resumed game. He may not see another opportunity this season.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Reiss Knehr: Set to start Friday
Knehr will be recalled from Triple-A El Paso to start Friday's regularly scheduled game against Atlanta, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
The two teams will resume a suspended game from July on Friday, and Knehr should officially join the major-league roster upon the completion of that contest to start the regularly scheduled game. Coincidently, Knehr originally started the suspended game and allowed three runs over 1.2 innings. Overall he has a 3.93 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 13:13 K:BB across 18.1 big-league innings this season....

Padres' Reiss Knehr: Demoted to minors
The Padres optioned Knehr to Triple-A El Paso on Wednesday.
The righty pitched four times in his latest MLB stint, allowing five runs on seven hits and six walks in 7.1 innings. Knehr has more walks (15) than strikeouts (14) in 20 big-league innings in 2021, and he has been pretty unimpressive overall, but the Padres' pitching woes and injuries could bring him back to San Diego before the season ends....

Padres' Reiss Knehr: Earns first career win
Knehr (1-0) allowed one earned run on three hits and one walk while striking out one across two innings, earning the win over the Diamondbacks on Sunday.
Knehr was called up prior to Sunday's game to fill innings in the scheduled bullpen game. He entered in the third inning in a tie game and allowed a run in the third frame on a Ketel Marte triple. However, the Padres scored three in the fifth frame to take the lead and put Knehr in line for the win. The 24-year-old has allowed just one run in 6.1 innings over his past three appearances. On the season, he has a 2.77 ERA and 1.31 WHIP in 13 innings.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Reiss Knehr: Rejoins big club
The Padres recalled Knehr from Triple-A El Paso on Sunday.
San Diego is treating Sunday's series finale with the Diamondbacks as a bullpen game, so Knehr could be a candidate to cover multiple frames in relief behind opener Craig Stammen, who is unlikely to work more than 2-to-3 innings. If Knehr goes unused Sunday, he could stay with the Padres and make a spot start or work as a primary pitcher at some point during the team's three-game series in Colorado that begins Monday. The Padres will need to fill Yu Darvish's (back) turn in the rotation during that series after he was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Reiss Knehr: Optioned to Triple-A
Knehr was optioned to Triple-A El Paso on Thursday.
Knehr returned to the majors at the beginning of August, and he logged a 1.23 ERA and 0.82 WHIP in 7.1 innings across three appearances. Right-hander Nabil Crismatt was recalled to take his place in the bullpen.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Reiss Knehr: Bypassed for spot start
Knehr is expected to be available in relief behind opening pitcher Craig Stammen in a bullpen game Tuesday against the Marlins, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
When the Padres last required a fifth starter Aug. 1 following Chris Paddack's (oblique) move to the injured list, Knehr stepped in to toss three scoreless frames in a no-decision. The Padres were able to get by with a shortened rotation for the rest of the week, so Knehr was available out of the bullpen for the team's recent series in Colorado and pitched two innings in relief Friday. Paddack's turn in the rotation comes up again Tuesday, but because Knehr will only be on three days' rest for that game, the Padres will instead turn to a number of pitchers to cover innings once Stammen departs. Knehr should still be fresh enough to give San Diego two or three innings, if needed.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Reiss Knehr: Tosses three innings in no-decision
Knehr allowed one earned run on two hits while striking out two across three innings in the win over the Rockies on Sunday. He did not factor into the decision.
Knehr replaced Chris Paddack (oblique) in the starting rotation, making his second start of the season Sunday. Although he only made it through three innings, his only blemish came on a second-inning solo home run by Sam Hilliard. It was his third appearance; however, his 1.2 innings and three runs against Atlanta on July 21 aren't official yet as the game was rained out and has yet to be completed. The 24-year-old has allowed runs in each of his appearances and will likely continue to serve as a temporary option until Paddack returns.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Reiss Knehr: Entering rotation for Paddack
Padres manager Jayce Tingler confirmed that Knehr will start Sunday's game against the Rockies in San Diego, Bob Scanlan of Bally Sports San Diego reports.
Knehr will be plugged into the rotation after he was called up from Triple-A El Paso as a replacement for Chris Paddack, who was placed on the injured list Saturday after tweaking his oblique in a bullpen session. Over his previous two starts with the Padres this season, Knehr has covered 5.1 innings while giving up five earned runs on four hits and six walks.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Reiss Knehr: Called up by Padres
Knehr was recalled from Triple-A El Paso on Saturday.
With Chris Paddack (oblique) hitting the injured list in a corresponding move, it's possible Knehr steps in to take his place in the rotation Sunday against the Rockies. He'd be on slightly more than normal rest, as he tossed six innings for Triple-A El Paso on Monday.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Reiss Knehr: Sent back to Triple-A
The Padres optioned Knehr to Triple-A El Paso on Thursday.
Knehr returned to the minors one day after he was called up to make a spot start in the second half of a doubleheader with Atlanta. He has yet to be officially credited with any statistics from that start; he gave up three runs on one hit and two walks over 1.2 innings, departing with a 5-2 lead before the game was suspended in the bottom of the fifth due to inclement weather while the Padres held a one-run advantage. Atlanta and San Diego are expected to make up the contest during their series in late September, so Knehr's statistics won't appear on his season-long ledger until the suspended game is completed....

Padres' Reiss Knehr: Called up, starting Game 2
The Padres recalled Knehr from Triple-A El Paso and designated him as the 27th man for Wednesday's doubleheader in Atlanta. He'll start the second game of the twin bill, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Knehr will be picking up his second start of the season for the Padres after he was touched up for two runs on three hits and four walks while striking out three in 3.2 innings July 9 against the Rockies. Due to the mounting injuries to the San Diego rotation, Knehr will temporarily step in as the club's fifth starter, but he could be headed back to the minors if Ryan Weathers (ankle) is ready to return from the injured list for this weekend's series in Miami....

Padres' Reiss Knehr: Could start Tuesday
The Padres may promote Knehr from Triple-A El Paso to start Tuesday against Atlanta, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Knehr is with the team as part of the taxi squad and could be called upon for at least one spot start. Monday's game is threatened by rain, however, so the Padres won't finalize their plans until they know when they'll wind up playing. Knehr made his big-league debut earlier this season but appeared just once, giving up two earned runs in 3.2 innings.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Reiss Knehr: Sent to Triple-A
Knehr was optioned to Triple-A El Paso on Saturday.
Knehr was recalled from Double-A San Antonio to start in place of Blake Snell (sick) on Friday. He did not factor in the decision while allowing two runs on three hits and four walks across 3.2 innings. He'll now get his first taste of Triple-A with El Paso, and he figures to be an option for another spot start with the Friars later this season.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Reiss Knehr: Adequate in debut
Knehr pitched 3.2 innings in Friday's 4-2 win against Colorado, allowing two runs on three hits and four walks with three strikeouts. He didn't factor into the decision.
Knehr was decent filling in for Blake Snell, though the start could've gone much worse. The rookie walked in a run with no outs in the second but was able to retire the next three Rockies before surrendering an RBI double to opposing starter Kyle Freeland, at which point he was removed in the fourth. He'll most likely return to the minors following the one-start cameo.... See More ... See Less
