Padres' Ryan Weathers: Headed to Triple-A
The Padres optioned Weathers to Triple-A El Paso on Sunday.
Even with Mike Clevinger (knee) set to begin the season on the injured list, Weathers' slim chances of breaking camp as a member of the Padres' rotation were dashed after the Friars acquired Sean Manaea from the Athletics on Sunday. With MacKenzie Gore turning heads in spring training, Weathers may not be the first prized young arm to get a call-up to the majors if San Diego has an opening at the rotation at some point early on in 2022. The Padres will likely want the 22-year-old lefty to first find some extended success at Triple-A after he faded badly down the stretch for the big club in 2021 to finish with a 5.32 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 10.5 K-BB% across 94.2 innings....

Padres' Ryan Weathers: Back to Triple-A
Weathers was optioned to Triple-A El Paso on Thursday.
Weathers was hit hard Wednesday in a spot start, as he allowed five earned runs on five hits and three walks against the Dodgers. The move will likely end his first regular season at the major-league level, and he posted a 5.32 ERA and 1.38 WHIP with a 72:30 K:BB across 94.2 frames.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Ryan Weathers: Doesn't fare well in spot start
Weathers allowed five runs on five hits and three walks while striking out two batters over three innings against the Dodgers on Wednesday. He did not factor into the decision.
Weathers picked up a spot start for the Padres on Wednesday and struggled to hold the Dodgers in check. Most of the damage against him was done in the opening frame, as the Dodgers scored a pair of runs before AJ Pollock cranked a two-run homer to left center. Another run would score the following inning off Corey Seager's second double of the night before Weathers ended his day with a scoreless third. The 21-year-old rookie had plenty of hiccups along the way but certainly flashed some long-term potential after posting a 2.91 ERA over 58.2 innings before the All-Star break. He struggled mightily in the second half, however, as his ERA shot up to a 5.32. He also posted a 1.38 WHIP and 72:30 K:BB over 94.2 innings for the season.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Ryan Weathers: Spot start on tap
Padres manager Jayce Tingler said Weathers will start Wednesday's game against the Dodgers in Los Angeles, 97.3 The Fan San Diego reports.
After a run of rough starts following the All-Star break, Weathers was dropped from the rotation in late August and has spent the past month in the bullpen. He's achieved better results while working in a low-leverage role (one earned run allowed, 8:1 K:BB in 8.1 innings), but Weathers will be moved back to the rotation out of necessity for the final week of the season with Chris Paddack (elbow) and Blake Snell (groin) on the shelf and Jake Arrieta no longer with the organization. Weathers will be pitching on three days' rest after covering two innings in relief Saturday versus Atlanta, so he likely won't be asked to work especially deep into Wednesday's start.... See More ...

Padres' Ryan Weathers: Moves to bullpen
Weathers made his most recent appearance out of the bullpen, striking out one over a scoreless inning in Wednesday's 8-3 loss to the Diamondbacks.
Weathers was dropped from the rotation in advance of Jake Arrieta's return from the 10-day injured list Friday to take over the No. 5 starter role. After a promising start to the season, Weathers faltered badly in his final six turns through the rotation, giving up 31 total earned runs in 20.2 innings.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Ryan Weathers: May have made final start
Weathers is expected to be optioned to Triple-A El Paso or move to the bullpen if Jake Arrieta (hamstring) is cleared to return from the 10-day injured list during this weekend's series with the Astros, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
After a strong start to the season, the 21-year-old lefty has looked the part of one of the majors' youngest pitchers since late July. In his last six outings, Weathers has been lit up for 31 earned runs -- including 11 home runs -- in 20.2 innings. Due to the Padres' dwindling rotation depth, Weathers has been forced to take his lumps at the big-league level, but Chris Paddack (oblique) is set to return from the IL on Monday, and Arrieta should be back a few days later. Those impending additions will give the Padres a full five-man rotation for the first time in weeks.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Ryan Weathers: Surrenders three in loss
Weathers (4-7) took the loss in Saturday's 10-2 defeat by the Angels, allowing three runs on four hits with one strikeout in three innings.
While he lasted just three innings and 54 pitches, Weathers limited the damage to two home runs, though the Padres only scored two in the game. The 21-year-old now has four losses in five August appearances with a 12.42 ERA in 16.2 innings, and San Diego has now lost the last eight games in which Weathers has made an appearance....

Padres' Ryan Weathers: Working in starting role Saturday
Padres manager Jayce Tingler said Weathers would start Saturday's game against the Angels, 97.3 The Fan San Diego reports.
In his last appearance Aug. 22 against the Phillies, Weathers worked behind opener Craig Stammen. The rookie didn't take well to the primary-pitcher role, covering two innings while giving up three runs on five hits to inflate his ERA to 5.27. After starting the season on a promising note, Weathers has faded badly since the beginning of June, and the Padres' mounting list of injured starting pitchers is likely the only thing keeping him in the rotation at this point. He could end up moving to the bullpen once the likes of Chris Paddack (oblique), Dinelson Lamet (hip/forearm) and Jake Arrieta (hamstring) start returning from the injured list.... See More ...

Padres' Ryan Weathers: Struggles over two innings in loss
Weathers (4-6) allowed two earned runs on five hits while striking out two across two innings, taking the loss to the Phillies on Sunday.
Working as a primary pitcher out of the bullpen behind Craig Stammen rather than in a starting role as he had in his most recent outings, Weathers didn't notice dramatically better results. He served up a solo home run to Rhys Hoskins in the fourth inning and surrendered three more hits on the day, resulting in an additional two runs allowed.The 22-year-old has been horrendous lately, allowing 28 runs over his last 17.2 innings. On the season, he has a 5.27 ERA and 1.39 WHIP with 61 strikeouts in 80.1 innings.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Ryan Weathers: Allows five runs in no-decision
Weathers yielded five runs on eight hits over four innings in Monday's loss to the Rockies. He struck out three and did not factor in the decision.
Weathers got off to a rough start, coughing up a leadoff blast to Connor Joe. The rest of the damage against him came during a four-run fourth inning, including a two-run homer by Charlie Blackmon. It was his fourth consecutive outing allowing at least five runs but he managed to avoid taking a fourth straight loss. Weathers' ERA shot up to 5.06 with a 59:26 K:BB through 78.1 innings this season. He's currently lined up to face the Phillies at home this weekend.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Ryan Weathers: Hammered by Miami
Weathers (4-5) took the loss Wednesday, coughing up six runs on seven hits -- including three home runs -- and a walk over 4.2 innings as the Padres were routed 7-0 by the Marlins. He struck out seven.
The K's salvaged some fantasy value for the southpaw, but Weathers got taken deep in each of the first three innings (twice by Lewis Brinson and once by Bryan De La Cruz for the rookie's first career homer) as he served up three long balls for the second time in his last three starts. Weathers has a brutal 15.42 ERA over that stretch, and he seems unlikely to hang onto a rotation spot once another option gets healthy for San Diego.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Ryan Weathers: Can't protect big lead
Weathers (4-4) took the loss against Arizona on Friday, pitching three-plus innings and allowing six runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out one.
Arizona starter Caleb Smith gave up five runs in less than two innings Friday, providing Weathers with a comfortable cushion to work with. However, the Padres starter couldn't hold the big advantage, surrendering a pair of runs in the third inning before falling apart in the fourth. He gave up four straight hits to begin that frame and was pulled without recording an out. After a strong start to the campaign, Weathers has struggled mightily over his past two outings, allowing a combined 14 runs across seven innings. As a result, his season ERA has jumped from a strong 2.73 to a much less desirable 4.26. His next start is tentatively scheduled to come at home against Miami next week.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Ryan Weathers: Knocked around by Rockies
Weathers (4-3) took the loss against Colorado on Friday, pitching four innings and allowing eight runs on eight hits and three walks while striking out two.
A grand slam off the bat of Ryan McMahon put Weathers and the Padres in an early hole, and Colorado tacked on four more runs by way of two two-run homers in the fourth frame to blow things open. The eight runs allowed by Weathers were double his previous 2021 single-game season high. The left-hander's ERA jumped from 2.73 to 3.65 as a result of the poor outing, but he'll try to bounce back in his next start, which is expected to come at home against Arizona next weekend....

Padres' Ryan Weathers: Tosses four scoreless frames
Weathers did not factor in the decision against Miami on Saturday, hurling four scoreless innings during which he allowed two hits and three walks while striking out four. He also hit a solo home run in his only at-bat.
The left-hander returned to the mound after spending nearly two weeks on the shelf with an ankle injury. He had some control issues -- Weathers walked three and threw only 42 of 73 pitches for strikes -- but managed to keep the Marlins off the scoreboard across four innings. He helped his own cause with a third-inning solo shot -- the first long ball of his career. Weathers figures to stick in the rotation now that he is back to full health and is currently slated to make his next start at home against Colorado late next week.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Ryan Weathers: Activated ahead of start
Weathers (ankle) was activated from the injured list as expected Saturday ahead of his scheduled start against the Marlins.
Weathers has been out for just shy of two weeks with an ankle issue. Prior to the injury, he'd cruised to a 2.91 ERA in 58.2 innings, though that wasn't close to supported by his 4.53 FIP, as he struck out a modest 17.9 percent of opposing batters. Miguel Diaz was optioned in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Ryan Weathers: Slated to return Saturday
The Padres list Weathers (ankle) as their probable pitcher for Saturday's game against the Marlins.
San Diego's decision to include Weathers on the pitching schedule for this weekend implies that he came out of Wednesday's live batting practice session feeling fine. Assuming Weathers experiences no complications with his inflamed right ankle heading into the series with the Marlins, he'll end up missing just one turn through the rotation on account of the injury....

Padres' Ryan Weathers: Could rejoin rotation in Miami
Weathers (ankle) could throw live batting practice as soon as Wednesday, which could line him up to be activated for a start at some point during the upcoming series in Miami, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.
While the Padres didn't lay out a hard plan for Weathers, the southpaw has at least a chance to be activated by the end of the week. Weathers suffered a small broken bone and right ankle inflammation during his July 16 start and is eligible to come off the injured list this coming Friday.... See More ... See Less
