Lucchesi is being challenged by Cal Quantrill for the fifth spot in the Padres' rotation, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Though Lucchesi entered spring training with a firm grasp on a rotation spot, he has struggled in Cactus League play, posting an 11.57 ERA and 2.57 WHIP in three starts. That appears to have allowed both Garrett Richards and Zach Davies to leapfrog him in the pecking order, as both hurlers have enjoyed impressive springs. Quantrill has been dominant as well, resulting in the possibility of Lucchesi being the odd man out.
Lucchesi (10-10) allowed one earned run on three hits and two walks while striking out six across six innings to take the loss Thursday against the Dodgers.
Lucchesi was a tough-luck loser Thursday, surrendering his only earned run in his final inning of work. Otherwise, he kept the Dodgers' lineup quiet, allowing no extra-base hits and recording 15 of his 18 outs via either groundout or strikeout. After consecutive rocky starts prior to Thursday's effort, Lucchesi will end the 2019 campaign on a positive note while also maintaining a 4.18 ERA and 1.22 WHIP across 163.2 innings.
Lucchesi (10-9) was charged with the loss against the Brewers on Thursday, lasting just four innings while allowing three runs on six hits and a pair of walks with seven strikeouts.
The southpaw struggled in this one, though the seven strikeouts were certainly a plus. On the bright side, Lucchesi bounced back after getting lit up for eight runs and nine hits during his last time out in Colorado. The 26-year-old now owns a 4.28 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 152:54 K:BB on the season. He'll look to rebound during his last start of the season Wednesday against the Dodgers.
Lucchesi (10-8) took the loss Friday, coughing up eight runs on nine hits -- including three home runs -- over 3.2 innings as the Padres fell 10-8 to the Rockies. He struck out two.
The two teams combined for five homers and 14 extra-base hits in a typically wild Coors Field affair, and Lucchesi took the brunt of the damage for the San Diego staff. The lefty will carry a 4.22 ERA and 145:52 K:BB through 153.2 innings into his next start Thursday in Milwaukee.
Lucchesi (10-7) picked up the win in Saturday's 3-0 victory over the Rockies, giving up two hits and five walks over six scoreless innings while striking out eight.
The southpaw retired the first 10 batters he faced before his control began to desert him, but despite having runners in scoring position in each of his final three frames, Lucchesi kept Colorado off the board. He'll take a 3.84 ERA and 143:52 K:BB through 150 innings into his next start Thursday, at home against the Cubs.
Lucchesi pitched six innings, allowing one run on eight hits and a walk while striking out three in a no-decision versus the Giants on Saturday.
The only run on Lucchesi's line came on an Austin Slater home run in the first inning. While Lucchesi was generous with the baserunners, he escaped danger effectively throughout the game. The left-hander allowed 13 runs over 32.2 innings in August, good for a 3.58 ERA in six starts. The 26-year-old owns a 4.00 ERA and 1.19 WHIP with 135 strikeouts over 144 innings this season. He remains at 9-7 entering his next start at home versus the Rockies next Saturday.
Lucchesi (9-7) earned the win against Boston on Sunday, tossing five innings and giving up one run on three hits and two walks while striking out three.
Lucchesi allowed a solo home run to J.D. Martinez in the fourth inning but was otherwise in control, throwing a first-pitch strike to 14 of 20 batters and limiting the Red Sox to five total baserunners. With the win, the 26-year-old upped his record to 9-7 and carries a 4.11 ERA and 1.17 WHIP along with a 132:46 K:BB in 138 innings this season. He'll head to San Francisco to face the Giants on Saturday in his next scheduled start.
Lucchesi (8-7) allowed two runs on three hits with two walks and four strikeouts across six innings while earning the victory against the Phillies on Sunday.
The left-hander gave up a pair of RBI doubles with Jean Segura, but that was just about it, as he recorded just his second quality start since the All-Star break. This victory was also his first since the break and snapped a three-game losing streak. Lucchesi, who will start again next Sunday at home against the Red Sox, owns a 4.20 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 129 strikeouts over 133 innings this season.
Lucchesi (7-7) took the loss against the Rays on Monday, giving up three earned runs on five hits over 4.2 innings, striking out six and walking three as the Padres fell 10-4.
The left-hander fell one out short of the five-inning threshold in this contest, as he struggled with his efficiency to the tune of 94 pitches before getting chased and ultimately taking his seventh loss of the season. Lucchesi's ratios this season aren't especially impressive, as he's sporting a 4.25 ERA and a 1.20 WHIP, but he has managed to provide decent strikeout numbers, with 125 punchouts over 127 innings. He'll take the mound next on the road against the Phillies on Sunday.
Lucchesi surrendered two runs on five hits and one walk over 5.1 innings during Wednesday's loss to the Mariners. He had eight strikeouts and did not factor in the decision.
Lucchesi was unable to secure a quality start, as he was lifted after retiring the first batter of the sixth inning with his pitch count at 102. The 26-year-old has a 4.19 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 119:39 K:BB over 122.1 innings and lines up to face the Rays on Monday.
Lucchesi (7-7) was charged with the loss Thursday at Dodger Stadium after surrendering four runs on four hits and three walks while striking out four over 5.2 innings.
Lucchesi gave up a solo home run to Cody Bellinger in the second inning and kept the Dodgers in check until the sixth, when he loaded the bases following a single and a pair of walks. The southpaw was then pulled after his 99th pitch and replaced by Trey Wingenter, who scored all three of Lucchesi's baserunners by giving up a grand slam to Will Smith. Lucchesi has struggled with issuing free passes lately, walking 12 batters over last four starts. The 26-year-old will look to improve upon a 4.23 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 111:38 K:BB during a Wednesday contest at Seattle.
Lucchesi allowed one run on two hits and four walks while striking out eight over six innings Friday. He took a no-decision in the 2-1 loss to the Giants.
He matched Giants starter Jeff Samardzija nearly pitch-for-pitch in their respective six-inning efforts. Lucchesi improved his ratios to a 4.12 ERA and 1.18 WHIP over 111.1 innings this season. He's struck out 107 batters and will carry a 7-5 record into his next scheduled start versus the Dodgers.
Lucchesi (7-5) allowed six runs on 10 hits and three walks while striking out three over 4.1 innings in a loss to the Cubs on Saturday.
The big blow came in the fourth inning, when Javier Baez turned a one-run deficit into a two-run lead with one swing of the bat. Lucchesi's strikeout rate is down more than three percentage points from a year ago, but he's allowing less hard contact and fewer line drives overall. This recent stretch in the schedule has been especially tough (@LAD, vs. ATL, @CHC), and Lucchesi has held his own. He lines up for a home start against the Giants next week.
Lucchesi didn't factor in the decision Saturday, allowing two runs on three hits and two walks while striking out four over five innings versus the Braves.
It was a so-so start for the 26-year-old, who held his own in the back-and-forth contest. Lucchesi has a 3.92 ERA and 1.11 WHIP in 101 innings this season. He takes a 7-4 record and a 96:28 K:BB heading into his next start, a road date scheduled for next Saturday against the Cubs.
Lucchesi (7-4) allowed three runs on six hits and no walks across 6.1 innings to earn the win Sunday against the Dodgers. He struck out four.
Lucchesi was solid through six innings, limiting baserunners and surrendering a pair of solo home runs. He came back out for the seventh, allowing a run on a pair of hits before leaving with one out. It was no small task to contain one of baseball's most productive lineups, especially since Lucchesi hadn't completed six innings in either of his previous two starts. The left-hander will take a respectable 3.94 ERA and a winning record into the second half of the season.
Lucchesi did not factor into the decision against the Cardinals on Sunday, tossing 5.1 innings and allowing two runs on four hits and three walks while striking out six.
Lucchesi breezed through five scoreless innings to begin his outing but was pulled after allowing two walks and a single to load the bases with one out in the fifth. Luis Perdomo then came on in relief and struck out his first batter before giving up a two-run single to Yairo Munoz, with both runs charged to Lucchesi. Lucchesi has now allowed three earned runs or fewer in 11 of his 16 starts this season, compiling a 3.91 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 88:26 K:BB in 89.2 innings. He'll have a road matchup against the Dodgers on Friday in his next scheduled start.
Lucchesi didn't factor into the decision Sunday against the Pirates after allowing four runs on six hits in five innings. He struck out four.
Lucchesi retired the first six batters he faced before running into trouble in the third inning, yielding a pair of runs on a double, two singles and a sacrifice fly before escaping the frame. The southpaw allowed two more runs over the next two innings and was subsequently removed prior to the sixth inning. He'll carry a 3.95 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 8.8 K/9 into his next start, which is expected to happen at home Saturday against the Cardinals.
Lucchesi (6-4) got the win against the Brewers on Monday, tossing seven shutout innings, giving up three hits, striking out five and walking three in the Padres' 2-0 victory.
Lucchesi continued his strong recent form with this sterling effort, as he's now given up three earned runs or less in seven out of his last eight starts dating back to May 4. The left-hander has lowered his ERA from 5.00 to 3.74 over that stretch, to go along with a solid 1.11 WHIP and a 78:23 K:BB through 79.1 innings. He's scheduled to take the mound next on the road against the Pirates on Sunday.
Lucchesi (5-4) took the loss against the Giants on Wednesday, allowing three runs (two earned) on five hits and two walks while striking out six across six innings.
After giving up a solo home run to Kevin Pillar in the second inning, Lucchesi held the Giants at bay until the fifth. He surrendered a trio of singles and a walk in that frame that allowed another two runs to score, including an unearned run stemming from Josh Naylor's throwing error. The left-hander looked much better this time out compared to his last start against the Giants on April 9, when he gave up a season-worst seven runs through just four innings. Unfortunately, his offense couldn't provide enough run support this time around. Through 13 starts, the 26-year-old owns a 4.11 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 73:20 K:BB. He'll look to get back into the win column in a Monday showdown against the Brewers.
Lucchesi (5-3) got the win against the Nationals on Thursday, giving up four earned runs on four hits over five innings, striking out five and walking three as the Padres won 5-4.
The game got off to a rough start for Lucchesi as the Nationals tagged him for all four of their runs in the first inning. However, he settled down after that and the Padres struck back for five runs of their own, allowing the left-hander to pick up his fifth win of the season. Lucchesi will carry a 4.21 ERA and a solid 1.13 WHIP into his next start, which is scheduled for Wednesday on the road against the Giants.
