Perdomo gave up five runs on five hits and four walks while striking out two over three innings against the Giants on Sunday.
Perdomo had a rough start to his day, walking three of the first four batters he faced before surrendering a grand slam off the bat of Hunter Pence. The 24-year-old settled down after an erratic five-run first inning to post zeros in his final two frames. Manager Andy Green gave the hard-throwing righty the "leg up" to claim one of the Padres' three rotation spots behind Clayton Richard and Bryan Mitchell before the start of spring training, but he needs to show better control of his live arm to clinch a starting job. Perdomo's mid-90s sinker and 61.8 percent groundball rate (second amongst qualified starters) are what make him a tantalizing option to fantasy owners, but he is still an unfinished product that would benefit from taking that "next step" in terms of learning how to command his stuff and pitch effectively. He shouldn't be considered more than a deep-league option until we see more consistency out of his arm.
Padres manager Andy Green said shortly before spring training began that Perdomo had a "leg up" for one of the three openings in the team's rotation, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Green suggested only Clayton Richard and Bryan Mitchell are assured rotation spots heading into the season, but it probably won't take much for Perdomo and Dinelson Lamet to sew up bids during the spring after both provided glimpses of potential in 2017. While he has yet to induce many strikeouts in the majors, Perdomo's high groundball rates look like a sustainable skill that should help him avoid blow-up outings. Unless he begins to generate weaker contact on the balls he puts in play and/or notices a steady uptick in his strikeout rate, however, Perdomo's fantasy ceiling remains limited.
Perdomo allowed four runs on seven hits and one walk across seven innings in a no-decision Sunday against the Giants. He struck out four.
Perdomo was staked to an early lead, but he struggled in allowing three runs on three hits, a walk and a wild pitch in the fourth inning, erasing his opportunity to pick up the win. The 24-year-old struggled a bit over his final two outings of the season, but he was quite solid for much of the second half and showed signs of developing into a respectable major league pitcher. He finishes the year with a 4.67 ERA and a 1.51 WHIP across a career-best 166.2 innings. Perdomo is under team control for the next four years and will look to continue his development in the 2018 campaign.
Perdomo (8-11) allowed four earned runs on six hits while taking the loss Sunday against the Diamondbacks. He lasted five innings, issuing two walks and striking out four in what ended as an 8-4 decision.
Despite having an ERA more than one run better than last year (4.65 vs. 5.71), the sophomore is still one victory shy of the nine he posted as a rookie. Perdomo will have one more shot at win No. 9 this season in his final scheduled start Sunday in San Francisco.
Perdomo (8-10) allowed two runs on four hits and six walks while striking out two batters through 5.1 innings to collect the win against Arizona on Monday.
The 24-year-old righty does a lot of things right and has made significant progress as a starter this season. Before Monday's start he had pitched at least six innings in each of his past 10 outings and sports an impressive 62.4 ground-ball percentage for the campaign. Unfortunately, wins are tough to come by pitching for the basement-dwelling Padres and his underwhelming 6.5 K/9 also hurts his overall fantasy potential. Perdomo projects to face the Rockies at Petco Park in his next start.
