Padres' Blake Snell: Earns win while fanning six
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snell (5-4) earned the win Tuesday against the Athletics after tossing five innings of one-run ball, allowing five hits and three walks while fanning six.

Snell has been very inconsistent this season and interspersed some particularly poor outings among his strong performances, but Tuesday's effort certainly qualified under the latter category. Snell has posted four starts with one or fewer runs allowed over his last seven appearances, but he has given up at least four runs in each of the remaining three in that span, including two starts in which he gave up seven runs. Despite the success against Oakland, it remains difficult to trust him due to those inconsistencies, which are reflected in the 5.24 ERA he'll carry into his next start.

Padres' Blake Snell: Tagged for seven runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snell (4-4) was tagged for seven runs on seven hits and four walks while fanning one in Wednesday's loss against the Athletics.

Snell had a rough outing Wednesday and has been very inconsistent of late, as he has given up four or more earned runs in three of his last six appearances. The lefty owns a 5.44 ERA on the season, which is a huge step in the wrong direction after he posted a 3.24 ERA during the shortened 2020 campaign.

Padres' Blake Snell: Fans eight in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snell (4-3) allowed a run on three hits and three walks while striking out eight in six-plus innings to earn the win Thursday over Miami.

The 28-year-old completed six innings for just the third time in 18 starts this year. In his three longest starts, he's allowed a combined two runs. Snell was on the hook for one of Miami's two runs in the seventh inning, but he got a well-earned win Thursday. Overall, he's struggled to a 4.93 ERA, 1.56 WHIP and 104:51 K:BB through 80.1 innings this season. He continues to walk batters at an alarming rate of 5.7 BB/9, which has led to shorter outings due to high pitch counts. Snell projects to make his next start at home versus Oakland next week.

Padres' Blake Snell: Struggles again Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snell pitched four innings against Washington on Saturday, allowing four runs on six hits and four walks while striking out three. He did not factor in the decision.

The game was suspended in the sixth inning due to a shooting outside the park, but Snell had already departed and been ruled out of factoring in the decision. The left-hander struggled with his control, throwing only 42 of 74 pitches for strikes and walking more batters (four) than he struck out (three). Walks have been a major factor in Snell's struggles this season -- Saturday marked the second straight game in which he walked four batters, and he has issued multiple free passes in all but two of his 17 outings. In fact, his 5.81 BB/9 ranks second-worst among MLB hurlers who have tossed at least 50 innings. Snell will look to turn things around in his next start, which is tentatively scheduled to take place in Miami on Thursday.

Padres' Blake Snell: Activated ahead of start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snell (illness) was activated from the injured list as expected Saturday ahead of his scheduled start against Washington.

Snell battled a non-COVID illness late in the first half, making just a single four-inning start since June 22. His first half-season in San Diego didn't go as planned, as he struggled to a 4.99 ERA while walking a career-worst 13.8 percent of opposing batters, but his strong 29.2 percent strikeout rate suggests his upside is still there for the second half.

Padres' Blake Snell: Confirmed as Saturday's starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snell (illness) has been confirmed as the probable starting pitcher for Saturday's game against Washington, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Snell didn't make his last scheduled start prior to the All-Star break due to gastroenteritis, and the club wound up putting the left-hander on the injured list so it could bring up another pitcher. The Padres said that they expected Snell to be fine to pitch during the series against the Nationals, and now he's officially scheduled to make his return to the mound Saturday. It's not clear at this point if the 28-year-old will face any sort of strict pitch count with him having gone 13 days between starts.

Padres' Blake Snell: Likely to start next weekend
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Padres are planning on Snell (illness) returning from the injured list next weekend to start Saturday's game against the Nationals, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

After Snell was scratched ahead of his scheduled start this past Friday in Colorado with gastroenteritis, the Padres elected to hold him out of the entire series with the Rockies and placed him on the 10-day injured list. The move was mostly a matter of roster flexibility, as Snell is expected to make a full recovery from the stomach illness well before the minimum 10 days. The Padres will reconvene Thursday following the All-Star break, and assuming Snell is able to throw a bullpen session that day without issue, he should be cleared to start Saturday's contest.

Padres' Blake Snell: Placed on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snell was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday with gastroenteritis, retroactive to July 6.

Snell was scratched from his Friday start against Colorado as he continues to feel fatigue from the illness. His move to the IL comes as no surprise, and he'll be eligible for activation when the club returns from the All-Star break July 16. Reiss Knehr was recalled from Double-A San Antonio to start in place of Snell on Friday.

Padres' Blake Snell: Won't start Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snell (fatigue) won't start as scheduled Friday against the Rockies, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Snell rejoined the rotation Sunday and delivered four scoreless innings after dealing with a bout of food poisoning, but he's been unable to build up his strength in the days following the outing. The left-hander won't make another start before the All-Star break and will instead receive some extra time to hopefully complete his recovery. San Diego's relievers have covered 13 innings over the past two contests and are now slated for a bullpen game Friday.

Padres' Blake Snell: Uncertain for Friday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snell (undisclosed) is struggling to build up his strength following his previous start and may not start Friday against the Rockies as scheduled, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

The left-hander threw 81 pitches over four scoreless frames Sunday after a brief stint on the shelf with a non-COVID illness, but he's apparently still not fully recovered from the ailment. Even if Snell is cleared to start Friday, he may face some workload limitations if he's less than 100 percent.

Padres' Blake Snell: Tosses four scoreless innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snell allowed two hits and four walks while striking out three in four scoreless innings in Sunday's win over the Phillies. He didn't factor into the decision.

Snell missed his last turn through the rotation due to a non-COVID illness, and he tossed 81 pitches in his return. The southpaw had some issues with command, as he only threw 39 of his pitches for strikes and issued four walks. However, Snell has now tossed nine scoreless innings across his last two starts. He tentatively lines up to make his next start at home against the Rockies on Friday.

Padres' Blake Snell: Reinstated for Sunday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snell (illness) was activated from the COVID-19 injured list and will start Sunday at Philadelphia, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

The left-hander was scratched from Tuesday's start and subsequently landed on the COVID-19 IL while dealing with a non-COVID illness, and he'll rejoin the rotation Sunday after missing a single turn. Snell delivered five scoreless frames in his last start against the Dodgers on June 22 and will attempt to build on that performance.

Padres' Blake Snell: Expected to start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Jayce Tingler is confident that Snell (COVID-19 injured list) will be able to start Sunday's game against the Phillies, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Snell was scratched from his scheduled start Tuesday due to an illness and was placed on the COVID-19 IL as a precautionary move. The southpaw never tested positive for the virus and is fully vaccinated, so he was cleared to rejoin the team Thursday and played catch that day. It appears as though Snell should be able to rejoin the rotation for Sunday's series finale in Philadelphia.

Padres' Blake Snell: Rejoins team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snell (COVID-19 injured list) was cleared to rejoin the team Thursday and was spotted playing catch on the field prior to the Padres' series finale versus the Reds in Cincinnati, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Snell was deactivated Wednesday after he was scratched from his scheduled start a day earlier after falling ill, but his placement on the IL appears to be precautionary more than anything. The veteran lefty is fully vaccinated and never tested positive for the virus, so he should be eligible for reinstatement from the IL in the near future. Snell tentatively lines up to rejoin the rotation Sunday against the Phillies, though the Padres could move him up a day or two in the pitching schedule if manager Jayce Tingler wants to extend some rest to the team's other four starters.

Padres' Blake Snell: Lands on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snell (illness) was placed on the injured list Wednesday.

The left-hander was scratched from Tuesday's start against the Reds due to an illness, and he'll now move to the shelf so the Friars can add another arm. According to Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune, the 28-year-old is fully vaccinated and tested negative for COVID-19, so it shouldn't be an extended absence. The team didn't specify whether Snell was placed on the 10-day IL or the COVID-19 IL, and if it's the latter he can be activated as soon as he's feeling better. He should be considered unavailable until the team updates his status, though it's possible he's able to rejoin the rotation within the week.

Padres' Blake Snell: Scratched from start with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snell has been scratched from his Tuesday start against the Reds because of illness. Craig Stammen will start in his place.

Per Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune, manager Jayce Tingler said Snell is dehydrated and dealing with "stomach stuff." It's not clear at this point if the left-hander could be an option to start later during the series in Cincinnati. Stammen figures to be the first of multiple relievers to pitch in what figures to be a bullpen game for the Padres on Tuesday.

Padres' Blake Snell: Hurls five scoreless innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snell (3-3) earned the win Tuesday against the Dodgers after tossing five scoreless innings, allowing four hits and three walks while striking out five.

Snell bounced back from an ugly start against the Rockies the last time out, when he allowed seven runs across just 3.1 innings. He picked up his third win of the campaign Tuesday. He's been hit-or-miss recently and owns a 4.66 ERA across four starts this month. His next start is scheduled for next week at Cincinnati.

Padres' Blake Snell: Another poor outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snell allowed seven runs on nine hits and two walks with just one strikeout in 3.1 innings versus Colorado on Wednesday. He did not factor in the decision.

Snell allowed multiple homers for just the second time in 14 starts this year. While long balls haven't been a problem, he allowed multiple walks for the 12th time. The southpaw has now failed to complete five innings in six of his last eight outings. He has a 5.72 ERA, 1.57 WHIP and 85:37 K:BB in 61.1 innings overall. Snell's next start is expected to be versus the Dodgers in next week's showdown between NL West powerhouses.

Padres' Blake Snell: Tagged with loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snell (2-3) gave up three runs on five hits and three walks with four strikeouts across four innings, taking the loss versus the Mets on Friday.

Snell had little trouble through four innings, but he allowed four straight batters to reach in the fifth before Austin Adams relieved him. It was a disappointing setback for Snell, who threw seven shutout innings versus the Mets in his previous start. The southpaw has an uninspiring 4.97 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 84:35 K:BB across 58 innings this year. He's failed to complete five innings in five of his last seven starts. The 28-year-old lines up for a home start versus Cincinnati next week.
