Paddack took the loss to the Cardinals on Wednesday in Game 1 of the NL Wild Card Series. He gave up six runs on eight hits while striking out one batter without a walk in 2.1 innings.
Paddack's fastball was a problem throughout the regular season, and while he had decent velocity Wednesday, the Cardinals had no trouble squaring up the pitch. Three of the four base-scoring hits against Paddack were off 94-mph offerings. He has taken a dramatic step backward after his stellar 2019 debut and will make for an interesting fantasy wild card in 2021.
Paddack will start Wednesday in Game 1 of the NL Wild Card Series against the Cardinals, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
The 24-year-old previously wasn't guaranteed to be included on the roster since it's only a three-game series, but he'll end up starting the postseason opener with Dinelson Lamet (biceps) and Mike Clevinger (elbow) banged up. Paddack had his share of troubles this season with a 4.73 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 58:12 K:BB over 59 innings, and he surrendered five runs on three homers during his final regular-season start last week.
According to Padres manager Jayce Tingler, Paddack will "absolutely" be on the roster for the upcoming wild-card series, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
There had been some doubt about Paddack's inclusion on the roster given the brevity of the three-game series and the right-hander's disappointing performance this season. However, the uncertain availability of starters Mike Clevinger (elbow) and Dinelson Lamet (biceps) could force Paddack into a larger role than previously anticipated. If he isn't needed in a starting role, Paddack could also come out of the bullpen, though he has yet to do so in his career, compared to 38 major-league starts.
Paddack (4-5) allowed five runs on eight hits -- including three home runs -- and one walk while striking out three across 3.2 innings to take the loss against the Giants on Friday.
Paddack gave up a solo home run to Brandon Crawford in the second inning, but it was in the fourth when he really fell apart. The 24-year-old allowed a solo home run and a double to kick off the inning before inducing back-to-back groundouts. The Giants then put up three more runs with two outs as Joey Bart singled home Evan Longoria and Mike Yastrzemski sent a towering shot into the water to put his team up 5-1. It's been an up-and-down year for Paddack, who will head into the postseason with a 4.73 ERA and a 58:12 K:BB across 59 innings.
Paddack (4-4) picked up the win Friday after holding the Mariners scoreless with three strikeouts across six innings. He allowed two walks and one hit.
Paddack, who was lifted after two innings during last Friday's start because of a right ankle sprain, seemed to have made a full recovery thanks to the extra days of rest. The 24-year-old was in dominant form, blanking the Mariners across six innings while allowing only a single to Evan White in the third frame. It was his fifth quality start of the year and the third time this season that he did not allow a run. With the win, Paddack improves to a 4.23 ERA and a 1.14 WHIP. He'll take the mound again Wednesday against the Angels.
Paddack (ankle) will start Friday's game against the Dodgers, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.
The 24-year-old was lifted from last Friday's start after two innings due to a right ankle sprain, but he'll be ready to retake the mound a week later after receiving a couple extra days of rest. Paddack has a 4-3 record with a 4.74 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 52:9 K:BB through 49.1 innings this season.
Paddack (ankle) completed a bullpen session Monday and appears on track to start either Wednesday in San Diego against the Dodgers or Friday against the Mariners in Seattle, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Paddack was removed from his previous start Sept. 11 after two innings due to a sprained right ankle, but the Padres don't seem overly concerned about the injury. Thanks to an off day Thursday to go along with a bullpen that hasn't been overtaxed during the team's seven-game winning streak, the Padres have the luxury of taking a cautious approach with Paddack and waiting until Friday to use him if he's healthy. If manager Jayce Tingler decides to go that route, the Padres could treat Wednesday as a bullpen game, with former rotation member Joey Lucchesi being the top candidate to eat most of the innings.
Paddack was spotted on the field without a protective boot before Friday's postponed game against San Francisco and informed manager Jayce Tingler that his injured ankle felt better, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Paddack exited his start Thursday after two innings due to a sprained right ankle but appeared to be feeling better one day later. "He had a compression sleeve on last night," Tingler said. "He said he woke up and felt better this morning than he did last night. That seems to be a good sign." While the Padres will not allow Paddack to return until ready, there is some urgency given the limited number of games remaining before the team decides its starting rotation for the playoffs. Per AJ Cassavell of MLB.com, the right-hander is not a lock to be included.
Paddack left Thursday's start against San Francisco due to a sprained right ankle and is considered day-to-day.
The right-hander fanned four and allowed a solo homer to Wilmer Flores over his two innings pitched. X-rays came back negative and it isn't yet known if he'll be able to make his next start. He was slated to take the ball Tuesday against the Dodgers.
Paddack was removed from Thursday's game against the Giants at the start of the third inning for an undisclosed reason, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
The only sign of injury for the right-hander was a drop in fastball velocity from 94-95 mph in the first inning to 91-92 mph in the second, according to Acee. He punched out four and allowed a solo homer to Wilmer Flores before departing.
Paddack (3-4) allowed four runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out six over 4.2 innings as he was charged with the loss Saturday against Oakland.
Paddack has been inconsistent recently, and he's been charged with losses in four of his last six starts as a result. He struggled early in Saturday's contest, giving up four runs over the first two innings, but he was able to settle down after that. However, the Padres' offense couldn't keep pace as Paddack added another loss to his record. He'll attempt to bounce back at home Thursday against the Giants.
Paddack (3-3) allowed two unearned runs on five hits and a walk across six innings Sunday, striking out eight and earning the win over Colorado.
Paddack was dominant through five scoreless innings Sunday, racking up six strikeouts and allowing just two hits. He allowed two runs in the sixth after an error by Eric Hosmer with two outs. Fortunately for Paddack, his season ERA dropped to 4.43 because the runs were unearned. He'll take the mound in Oakland on Friday.
Paddack (2-3) allowed six runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out seven over five innings in a loss to the Mariners on Tuesday.
As AJ Cassavell of MLB.com noted during the game, Paddack's fastball continues to be an issue. His average fastball velocity is actually up a bit, but he entered Tuesday's game with a .316 BAA on his fastball, with six home runs and a .772 SLG on 292 heaters thrown. The Mariners jumped on the fastball early and added a couple runs in the sixth, one after Paddack was pulled from the game. Paddack now has a 5.15 ERA, but there has been nothing from the team to suggest he may be injured. If we don't hear of anything on that front in the coming days, Paddack should take the ball Sunday in Colorado.
Paddack did not factor into the decision during Wednesday's win over the Rangers, allowing one run on four hits and a pair of walks while striking out five across six innings.
Aside from serving up a solo home run to Rougned Odor in the second inning, Paddack kept the Rangers in check. The 24-year-old, who has struggled with a weaker fastball this year, was coming off a rough start against the Dodgers last time out, so it was nice to see him rebound. He'll carry a 4.26 ERA and 1.14 WHIP into next week's matchup against Seattle.
Paddack's next scheduled start has been pushed back to Wednesday against the Rangers in San Diego, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.
The Padres didn't provide a reason for pushing Paddack and Dinelson Lamet back one day in the rotation, but the most likely reason is simply to give the pair an extra day of rest. The team hasn't announced who will step in to start Tuesday. Paddack will attempt to bounce back from a rough outing during his last turn through the rotation.
Paddack (2-2) lasted only three innings against the Dodgers on Thursday, allowing six runs on six hits and one walk while striking out one and taking the loss.
Paddack exited after throwing only 52 pitches, the lowest total of his young career. He was hit hard in the brief outing, giving up a pair of home runs in the first inning and another in the second. In total, five of LA's six hits against the Padres ace went for extra bases, and he managed only one punchout on the night. The right-hander's ERA ballooned to 4.91 with the tough outing, and his WHIP now stands at 1.17. Paddack will try to get back on the right track in his next scheduled start Tuesday in Texas.
Paddack (2-1) took the loss Saturday, allowing three runs on five hits and two walks while striking out six in 5.2 innings versus the Diamondbacks.
Paddack was in the midst of a fine outing until the sixth inning, when solo shots from Starling Marte and Stephen Vogt ended his appearance. The Padres couldn't cover the damage, and Paddack took his first loss in four starts. The right-hander has a 3.18 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 21:3 K:BB in 22.2 innings this season. He'll try to get back in the win column on the road Thursday versus the Dodgers.
Paddack (2-0) earned the win in Monday's 5-4 victory over the Dodgers. He gave up three runs on five hits -- including one home run -- while fanning five across six innings.
Paddack tossed his second quality start of the season -- in three outings -- and has earned the win both times he's reached that feat. Paddack has allowed homers in back-to-back starts, but he has limited the damage while racking up 15 strikeouts in just 17 innings across his first three appearances. His next scheduled start will come Aug. 9 at home against Madison Bumgarner and the Diamondbacks.
Paddack didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's contest between the Giants and the Padres. He tossed five innings of two-run ball, giving up six hits while fanning six.
Paddack's night ended three outs away from what would've been a second straight quality start. He has been pitching well to start the season, allowing two runs while fanning 10 across 11 innings. His next scheduled start is slated for Aug. 3 at home against the Dodgers.
Paddack (1-0) pitched six scoreless innings, allowing just four hits and a walk while striking out four in a win over the Diamondbacks on Friday.
Fantasy managers couldn't ask for much better than Paddack's sparkling first start of the season. The 24-year-old posted a 3.33 ERA and a 9.8 K/9 ratio in 140.2 innings as a rookie last year. Paddack will look to build on his positive start to 2020 when he takes the mound in San Francisco on Wednesday.
