Strahm will undergo surgery to repair the patellar tendon in his right knee, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Strahm was bothered by a knee issue for much of the 2020 season, but he's expected to be ready for spring training following his surgery. He underwent a similar surgery on his left knee in 2017. The southpaw was effective over a limited sample in 2020, recording a 2.61 ERA and 0.87 WHIP over 20.2 innings.
Strahm (knee) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Tuesday.
Strahm missed the minimum amount of time with right knee inflammation. He'll return to his role as a strong bullpen option for the final week and will be looking to maintain his 2.84 ERA and 0.84 WHIP. Joey Lucchesi was optioned in a corresponding move.
Strahm (knee) threw a bullpen session Wednesday, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Strahm hit the injured list Friday with right knee inflammation. Given that he's throwing again within a week, it doesn't appear that he's set for a lengthy absence, though whether or not he returns after the minimum 10 days remains to be seen.
Strahm was placed on the 10-day injured list with right knee inflammation Friday.
Strahm tossed one scoreless inning Thursday, but he apparently didn't escape unscathed as he'll be sidelined with a knee injury. The severity of the issue is unclear, and whether he misses more than the 10-day minimum remains to be seen. The southpaw has pitched quite effectively this season with a 2.84 ERA and 0.84 WHIP over 19 innings.
Strahm could be a starter in the future, but he's expected to come out of the bullpen during the 2020 campaign, Bill Center of FriarWire reports.
Strahm has stated his desire to be a starter and has performed in that role 24 times in his big-league career. However, he was more effective in relief last season, and the Padres' fifth starting spot for 2020 looks to be a battle between Joey Lucchesi and Cal Quantrill. Though manager Jayce Tingler indicated early in spring training that Strahm could have a future as a starter, he appears to be firmly locked into a bullpen role for the time being.
Strahm will fill a bullpen role with the Padres this season, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.
Strahm pitched 46 games for San Diego in 2019, making 30 appearances in relief. He posted a 3.27 ERA and held opposing hitters to a .246 average in that role, and the Padres will look to him for similar production in 2020. Per Cassavell, Strahm is likely to work in a long-relief role, regularly pitching two or three innings.
Strahm agreed to a one-year contract with San Diego on Friday, avoiding arbitration.
Strahm began the 2019 season in the starting rotation before transitioning to a bullpen role later on. He finished with a 4.71 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 118:22 K:BB over 114.2 frames (16 starts).
Strahm allowed no runs on three hits with zero walks and four strikeouts across two innings during a no-decision against the Reds on Wednesday.
Starting his first game of the second half, Strahm wasn't expected to last long anyway, but then it took him 42 pitches to record six outs. Although he didn't give up any runs, that shortened his outing even more. Strahm has been better out of the bullpen this season, but it will be interesting to see if this strong start leads to more opportunities down the stretch. He is 5-8 with a 5.11 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 103 strikeouts in 98.2 innings across 31 appearances, including 16 starts, this season.
Strahm will start Wednesday's series finale at Cincinnati, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Strahm began the season in the starting rotation but has been working in relief since the All-Star break, so he's likely to have a limited workload Wednesday in what amounts to a bullpen day for the Padres. The 27-year-old has a 4.24 ERA and 1.12 WHIP in 14 outings since transitioning to the bullpen, though five of the eight runs he's allowed came during one outing.
Strahm (4-8) gave up five runs on five hits and one walk in 1.2 innings to take the loss against Baltimore Tuesday. He struck out four.
Strahm was brought in to protect a 5-3 lead, but didn't have it today. The left-hander had allowed just one run in his first 8.1 innings since joining San Diego's bullpen. However, the 27-year-old gave up two runs in the seventh on a Renato Nunez RBI single, then three more in the eighth on a Chris Davis solo homer and a Trey Mancini two-run single. Strahm now holds an 5.42 ERA and 1.29 WHIP with a 92:19 K:BB across 89.2 innings of starting and relief duty.
Strahm has allowed one run while posting an 11:1 K:BB in 8.1 innings over his six appearances since joining San Diego's bullpen.
The lone run Strahm allowed came via the long ball, which proved to be a major hindrance to his success during his time in the rotation earlier this season. Strahm's home-run problems should generally be a lesser concern while he works out of the bullpen, as the shorter spurts won't force him to be as reliant on his fastball, which has been his weakest offering by far this season in terms of pitch value. The Padres haven't made major use of Strahm in higher-leverage spots yet, but he could gain more prominence the bullpen if the team parts ways with Kirby Yates or Craig Stammen prior to Wednesday's deadline.
Strahm will pitch out of the bullpen through the All-Star break and potentially through the second half, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.
Strahm would be available out of the bullpen over the weekend regardless of his recent performances, as he doesn't have any starts remaining before the break. He could be the odd man out when Dinelson Lamet returns from Tommy John surgery, however, and could spend most or all of the second half in a relief role. He thrived in that capacity last season, posting a 2.05 ERA while striking out 28.2 percent of opposing batters. That gave him some hype this offseason upon his return to the rotation, but he's failed to impress, with his ERA ballooning to 5.42.
Strahm (3-7) took the loss Tuesday, surrendering seven runs on 11 hits -- including three home runs -- and a walk over five innings while striking out six as the Padres fell 10-4 to the Giants.
Evan Longoria wielded the big bat for San Francisco, launching two of the three homers off Strahm, but the southpaw didn't exactly have a lot of success against the rest of the lineup. He'll take a 5.42 ERA and 77:17 K:BB through 79.2 innings into the All-Star break.
Strahm (3-6) picked up the win Wednesday, allowing four runs on five hits over six innings while striking out nine in a 10-5 victory over the Orioles.
The southpaw did serve up two homers -- the sixth straight start in which he's done so -- but the Padres supported him with five of their own. Strahm will carry a 4.94 ERA -- backed by an ugly 1.93 HR/9 and 71:16 K:BB through 74.2 innings --into his next outing Tuesday, at home against the Giants.
Strahm didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 8-7 win over the Brewers, allowing four runs on five hits and a walk over five innings while striking out two.
The southpaw didn't have his best stuff, managing only six swinging strikes among his 82 pitches (55 total strikes) and getting taken deep by Ryan Braun and Christian Yelich. Strahm will carry a 4.85 ERA and 62:16 K:BB through 68.2 innings into his next start Tuesday in Baltimore.
Strahm (2-6) took the loss against the Rockies on Thursday, pitching 3.1 innings and giving up six runs on seven hits and four walks while striking out four.
Strahm missed only one start after being diagnosed with a rib strain and was tasked with the difficult assignment of pitching in Colorado upon his return. Though Strahm gave up a homer to Trevor Story and Charlie Blackmon, his control was as much to blame for the poor outing as the altitude; he threw only 11 of 21 first pitches for strikes and set a career high by walking four batters. Strahm has followed a strong 10-strikeout appearance against the Yankees on May 27 with a pair of duds in which he has allowed 13 earned runs in 7.2 innings to raise his season ERA from 3.21 to 4.66. He'll try to turn things around when he faces the Brewers on Tuesday in his next scheduled start.
Strahm (ribs) was activated from the 10-day injured list ahead of his scheduled start Thursday against the Rockies.
As expected, Strahm is set to rejoin the rotation after a minimum stay on the 10-day injured list with a rib injury. The left-hander posted a 4.03 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 56:11 K:BB in 11 starts (60.1 innings) prior to landing on the shelf. Robert Stock was sent to the minors in a corresponding move.
Strahm (ribs) is scheduled to be activated off the 10-day injured list to start Thursday at Colorado, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Strahm landed on the IL with the rib strain after his last start June 2 and will return to the Friars after spending the 10-day minimum on the shelf. The 27-year-old has a 4.03 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 56:11 K:BB through 60.1 innings this season.
Strahm is not expected to spend much longer than the minimum 10 days on the injured list with his rib strain, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.
It appears as though Strahm's trip to the injured list is a matter of workload management as much as anything else. He could wind up missing just one start and re-enter the rotation at some point near the end of next week.
Strahm landed on the 10-day injured list with a left rib strain Wednesday.
The injury perhaps explains Strahm's poor showing Sunday against the Marlins, when he gave up seven runs in 4.1 innings. The severity of the injury is not yet clear, but the Padres likely want to manage Strahm's innings after he logged just 75.2 frames last season. Therefore, the team's bar for what is bad enough to send him to the injured list is probably quite low. Wednesday's starter Cal Quantrill was recalled in a corresponding move.
