Padres' Matt Strahm: Activated from IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stram (knee) was reinstated from the 60-day injured list Tuesday.

Strahm dominated during three rehab appearances, striking out seven while allowing one earned run on two hits and zero walks over 3.2 innings. He will assume a middle-relief role for San Diego down the stretch.

Padres' Matt Strahm: Due back Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Jayce Tingler said the Padres plan to reinstate Strahm (knee) from the 60-day injured list ahead of the team's two-game series in Oakland that begins Tuesday, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

Sidelined all season while recovering from the patellar tendon surgery he required for his right knee last October, Strahm kicked off a minor-league rehab assignment just under two weeks ago and has apparently convinced the Padres that he's healthy and ready to contribute out of the bullpen. He was particularly sharp over his last two appearances for Triple-A El Paso, firing 2.2 perfect innings and striking out four between the outings. Given that eight other San Diego relievers currently reside on the IL, Strahm could get the opportunity to pitch high-leverage innings out of the bullpen right away for the big club.

Padres' Matt Strahm: Thriving in rehab stint
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strahm (knee) has struck out seven batters in 3.2 innings across three appearances with Triple-A El Paso. He has allowed two hits and two runs, though both have been unearned.

In the left-hander's most recent appearance, he tossed 1.2 perfect innings and threw 17 of 22 pitches for strikes Friday. He has yet to pitch this season after undergoing knee surgery last October, but he could be mere days away from rejoining the big-league bullpen.

Padres' Matt Strahm: Set to start rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strahm (knee) is slated to begin a rehab stint with Triple-A El Paso on Friday, per MLB.com.

Strahm has yet to pitch this season after undergoing knee surgery last October. He has thrown a handful of bullpen sessions, however, and recently advanced to tossing a simulated game. Strahm will likely need a fair amount of time to get his arm game-ready considering his lengthy layoff, but he appears on track to rejoin the Padres in the coming weeks. He could emerge as a key addition to the bullpen after registering a 2.61 ERA and 0.87 WHIP across 20.2 innings last season.

Padres' Matt Strahm: Advances to simulated game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strahm (knee) threw a simulated game Saturday, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Strahm has been out all year while working his way back from October knee surgery. He appears to be closing in on a return, but he could need a handful of rehab appearances given the length of his absence.

Padres' Matt Strahm: Still feeling effects of surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strahm has thrown three light bullpens since mid-June and has felt some soreness in his surgically repaired right knee after each session, MLB.com reports.

The lingering soreness hasn't prevented Strahm from throwing, but it represents the considerable buildup that he'll need to undertake before being able to rejoin the big-league club. The left-hander isn't expected back until sometime after the All-Star break.

Padres' Matt Strahm: Rehab continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strahm (knee) has joined the major-league training staff to continue his rehab process, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Strahm has been working on bullpens and strengthening in Arizona recently, but he's now back in San Diego to work with the big-league staff. The southpaw has been on the injured list since the start of the season as he continues to recover from patellar tendon surgery on his right knee in October, and he remains without a clear timetable for his return.

Padres' Matt Strahm: Still no timeline for return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strahm (knee) has been rehabbing in Arizona but remains without an established timeframe to return, Bill Center of FriarWire reports.

Strahm is currently on the 60-day injured list after undergoing knee surgery during the offseason. He is expected to rejoin the team sometime this summer but still has many steps to take before that can happen. "The last couple of weeks, the knee has been better and bouncing back better. He's taking steps forward. No timeline quite yet. He has to do some pitching," manager Jayce Tingler explained Saturday.

Padres' Matt Strahm: Shifts to 60-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strahm (knee) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Saturday.

The 29-year-old continues his recovery from patellar tendon surgery on his right knee in October and won't be retaking the field in the near future. Strahm didn't pitch at any point during spring training and will be unavailable until at least the start of June.

Padres' Matt Strahm: Headed to IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Padres manager Jayce Tingler confirmed Monday that Strahm (knee) will begin the season on the injured list, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Considering that Strahm hasn't pitched at any point during the Padres' Cactus League schedule, his move to the IL was fully expected. The 29-year-old is still ramping up from the patellar tendon surgery he required last October, and at this point he remains without a clear timetable to make his 2021 debut.

Padres' Matt Strahm: Won't be ready by Opening Day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strahm (knee) will be out past Opening Day, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

Strahm is still recovering from the patellar tendon surgery he underwent on his right knee last October. Though there was initially hope that he'd be able to ramp up by Opening Day, it is now clear that the left-hander will need to miss the start of the campaign. When he does return to action, Strahm should immediately fill an important spot in a Padres bullpen that has already been reduced by injuries.

Padres' Matt Strahm: Opening Day status in question
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strahm (knee) could miss the start of the regular season, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Strahm underwent patellar tendon surgery on his right knee in late October and has been playing catch during the first few days of spring training. However, he isn't expected to start throwing bullpens until at least next week. While the southpaw is pushing himself to be ready in time for Opening Day, he also acknowledged that he could miss the first several games in order to preserve his long-term health. Strahm posted a 2.61 ERA and 0.87 WHIP with three holds over 20.2 innings with the Padres last season.

Padres' Matt Strahm: Remaining with Padres
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strahm (knee) signed a one-year, $2 million contract to avoid arbitration with the Padres on Wednesday, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

The 29-year-old has been a reliable bullpen piece for the Friars over the past few years, and he had a 2.61 ERA, 0.87 WHIP and 15:4 K:BB with three holds over 20.2 innings last season. Strahm underwent surgery to repair the patellar tendon in his right knee during October, but he's expected to be ready for the start of spring training.

Padres' Matt Strahm: Slated to undergo surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Padres' Matt Strahm: Returns from injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Padres' Matt Strahm: Tosses bullpen session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Padres' Matt Strahm: Placed on 10-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Padres' Matt Strahm: Door not closed on starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Padres' Matt Strahm: Expected to work as a reliever
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Padres' Matt Strahm: Reaches deal with Padres
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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).
