Musgrove (2-3) allowed six runs (five earned) on four hits and two walks while striking out six over five innings to take the loss to the Giants ion Sunday.
Musgrove cruised through the opening two innings but ran into trouble in the third after issuing a leadoff walk and then allowing pitcher Kevin Gausman to reach on a fielding error before Tommy La Stella singled to drive in the first run of the game. Mike Tauchman stepped in next and would take Musgrove deep to right to put the Giants up 4-1. Musgrove would later surrender two more runs in the fifth before his day was over. It was the first outing of the season in which he let in more than two runs and he's also only managed 10 strikeouts over his last two starts after punching out 13 against the Brewers on April 19. He still owns a very solid 2.38 ERA, 0.74 WHIP and 47:7 K:BB over 34 innings and is in line for a rematch against Gausman and the Giants later in the week.
Musgrove is starting Sunday's game against the Giants.
Dinelson Lamet (forearm) was said to be in the mix to start Sunday's series finale, but Musgrove will instead make his regular turn through the rotation. The 28-year-old has a 1.24 ERA, 0.66 WHIP and 41:5 K:BB through 29 innings this season, though he lasted only three frames during his start versus the Dodgers last weekend.
Musgrove allowed two earned runs on three hits and two walks while striking out four across three innings in Sunday's win over the Dodgers. He did not factor in the decision.
The Dodgers were able to get to Musgrove early, forcing him to go deep into counts resulting in 77 pitches in three innings. Coming off a 13-strikeout performance in his last outing against the Brewers, Musgrove was only able to muster four punchouts on a tough Dodgers offense. The 28-year-old's ERA raised from 1.04 to 1.55 after Sunday's performance.
Musgrove (2-2) allowed two runs on four hits and a walk while striking out 13 hitters over seven innings Monday against the Brewers, though he was stuck with the loss.
The Padres' bats handed Musgrove an early 1-0 lead, but they went silent for the rest of the game, spoiling a magnificent outing from the right-hander. Musgrove registered a career-high 13 strikeouts but allowed a pair of solo home runs, which was enough to hand the 28-year-old his second straight loss. Musgrove is still off to a scorching start to the year, as he'll take a 1.04 ERA and 37:3 K:BB into his next scheduled start against the Dodgers on Sunday.
Musgrove (2-1) allowed one run on four hits and two walks while striking out six batters in a loss to the Pirates on Wednesday.
Musgrove had started the season off with 16.1 scoreless innings before Gregory Polanco demolished a fastball over the right-field wall in the second to give the Pirates a 1-0 lead. Musgrove was able to pitch himself out of a leadoff double in the third and a runners-at-the-corners, no-out pickle in the fourth before getting pulled at just 81 pitches after he needed 112 in his no-hitter against the Rangers on Friday. The Padres were unable to give him run support, which led to his first loss of the season, but he'll still take a 0.47 ERA into his next start at home against the Brewers on Monday.
Musgrove (2-0) no-hit the Rangers at Globe Life Field on Friday. He struck out 10 and did not issue a walk over nine scoreless innings.
The right-hander was nearly perfect -- the lone blemish across 112 pitches was a hit batsman in the fourth inning. Musgrove was traded to his hometown team in the offseason and is already looking like a steal for San Diego after two consecutive wins to kick off the 2021 campaign, including the first no-hitter in franchise history. He's gotten the job done by relying heavily on his secondaries, and with this refined pitch mix, Musgrove could be headed for that long-awaited breakout. He lines up to face his former team in Pittsburgh next week.
Musgrove (1-0) earned the win against Arizona on Saturday, pitching six scoreless innings and allowing three hits while striking out eight. He did not walk a batter.
Musgrove was simply dominant in his first start of the campaign, yielding only a trio of harmless singles and not allowing any runners to reach second base. The right-hander tossed 57 of 78 pitches for strikes and induced 14 swings-and-misses in the outing. Musgrove's next start will take place Friday at Texas.
Musgrove tossed five scoreless and hitless innings against Cleveland in Sunday's Cactus League contest, allowing two walks and striking out six.
The right-hander finished his spring slate with a flourish, and he worked up to 70 pitches in the exhibition tune-up. Musgrove concludes Cactus League play with a 3.50 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 17:7 K:BB over 18 innings. He's set to fill the No. 4 slot in the Padres' starting rotation this season.
Musgrove hurled four innings in a Cactus League contest versus the White Sox on Tuesday, allowing three unearned runs on three hits and two walks while striking out four.
The first batter Musgrove faced reached base on an error, which set the tone for the remainder of the right-hander's appearance. San Diego committed three more errors behind Musgrove, leading to three unearned runs. The 28-year-old was also struck in the shoulder by a comebacker in the second inning, though he stayed in the game and appeared unscathed. Musgrove has a 2.00 ERA and 6:3 K:BB through nine innings this spring.
Musgrove pitched three innings in Thursday's Cactus League contest versus Cleveland, allowing two runs on four hits and one walk while striking out one.
Musgrove pitched a pair of perfect frames in his Padres spring debut last week, but he was less effective his second time out. The right-hander gave up a pair of run-scoring doubles Thursday, though he was efficient in needing only 36 pitches to make it through three innings. Musgrove should have a few more chances to fine tune his arsenal this spring before settling into a spot near the middle of the Padres' regular-season rotation.
Musgrove tossed two perfect innings and struck out one batter during Friday's Cactus League contest versus San Francisco.
In his exhibition debut with his hometown team, Musgrove needed only 18 pitches to make quick work of six batters. The right-hander is slotted to fill a back-end spot in a Padres rotation that, on paper, looks to be among the best in the league heading into the season.
Musgrove was sent from the Pirates to the Padres as part of a three-team deal which sent Joey Lucchesi to the Mets and a package of prospects to the Pirates, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.
The Padres evidently believe there's no such thing as too much pitching, as they've now added Musgrove, Blake Snell and Yu Darvish all in the same offseason. Musgrove may not be quite at the level of that pair, but he's coming off a strong season which saw him strike out 33.1 percent of opposing batters, smashing his previous career high of 21.9 percent, en route to a 3.86 ERA. He should see far more chances for wins for the rapidly improving Padres than he would have seen in Pittsburgh.
Musgrove agreed to a one-year, $4.45 million contract with the Pirates on Friday, avoiding arbitration.
The Pirates' potential Opening Day starter heading into his age-28 season, Musgrove logged a 3.86 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 55:16 K:BB in 39.2 innings last season. His strikeout rate jumped from 21.9 percent in 2019 to 33.1 percent in 2020, and if those gains hold even a little, he could be in for a career year.
Musgrove (1-5) pitched seven scoreless innings, allowing three hits and a walk while striking out 10 in Saturday's win over Cleveland.
Musgrove was able to avoid a goose egg in the win column for 2020, turning in a spectacular final start of the season and retiring the last 13 batters he faced. He ended the season with a 3.86 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 55:16 K:BB.
Musgrove tossed six scoreless innings in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals, allowing three hits and a walk while striking out 11. He did not factor in the decision.
The outing was by far Musgrove's best of the season. His 11 strikeouts brought his K:BB to 45:15 and the six scoreless frames lowered his ERA to 4.68 on the campaign. He was in line to pick up his first win when he exited with the Pirates leading 1-0 but had to settle for a no-decision after Yadier Molina's homer off Derek Holland gave St. Louis the lead. The 27-year-old will have one more chance to get a victory when he toes the rubber Saturday in Cleveland.
Musgrove (0-5) took the loss Tuesday in Cincinnati after allowing four runs on six hits with eight strikeouts and one walk over five innings.
The 27-year-old ran into most of his trouble during the first inning as he loaded the bases before recording an out, and the Reds pushed across three runs via a hit by pitch, a sacrifice fly and a single. Musgrove has a 5.74 ERA, 1.54 WHIP and 34:14 K:BB across 26.2 innings and is on track to face the Cardinals on Sunday.
Musgrove allowed three hits and two walks while striking out five across four scoreless innings Tuesday against the White Sox. He did not factor into the decision.
Musgrove was in control throughout his start, as he allowed only one extra-base hit. He also racked up nine swinging strikes on 64 total pitches. The only downside to the start was that it appears the Pirates will be careful with his workload after Musgrove missed nearly a month with a triceps injury. In a pair of outings since returning, Musgrove has allowed two earned runs across seven innings while punching out nine and walking none. He'll take his next turn through the rotation Monday at Cincinnati.
Musgrove (0-4) allowed two earned runs on three hits and no walks while striking out four across three innings to take the loss Wednesday against the Cubs.
Musgrove was making his first start since Aug. 4, and was limited to just 46 pitches. He fared well through three innings, racking up four strikeouts while also generating five ground ball outs. Musgrove came back out to start the fifth inning but surrendered a single and double prior to being yanked. Nick Tropeano came in and promptly surrendered a three-run homer, charging Musgrove with two earned runs in the process. Musgrove will look to build on this effort in his next outing, currently projected to come Tuesday against the White Sox.
Musgrove (triceps) was activated as expected ahead of his scheduled start against the Cubs on Wednesday.
Musgrove has missed nearly a month with triceps inflammation. He threw just two innings in a simulated game late last week, so he's unlikely to go too deep into the game Wednesday. Carson Fulmer was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.
Musgrove (triceps) will be activated off the 10-day injured list to start Wednesday against the Cubs, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
The 27-year-old advanced to throwing simulated games at the alternate training site last week and is now ready to rejoin the Pirates after spending three weeks on the injured list. Musgrove only pitched a few innings in his recent sim game and is unlikely to be fully stretched out Wednesday, so he may have a tough time reaching the necessary five innings to qualify for a victory.
