Lamet allows one earned run on one hit and one walk while striking out one across two innings in the Padres' win over the Rockies on Tuesday. He did not factor into the decision.
Lamet seems to be a lock in for two innings at this point, pitching exactly two innings in all three of his starts. Raimel Tapia scored the only run of the game for the Rockies in the first inning off Lamet. He's taken advantage of the limited opportunities he's getting, allowing just one run in six innings. However, the injury protection the team is giving him is preventing him from getting any consistency in his starts.
Lamet will start Tuesday's game against the Rockies, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Lamet's scheduled start Monday was postponed due to inclement weather, but he'll take the mound a day later. Yu Darvish was initially expected to start Tuesday but will now start Game 1 of Wednesday's doubleheader.
Lamet's scheduled start Monday against the Rockies has been postponed due to inclement weather.
The game will be made up as part of a doubleheader Wednesday. It's possible Lamet won't get to start until one of those two games, as ace Yu Darvish is scheduled to start Tuesday.
Padres manager Jayce Tingler said Lamet will start Monday's game against the Rockies in Colorado, Annie Heilbrunn of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
In his return from the 10-day injured list last week, Lamet was deployed in a tandem with Ryan Weathers, who had been returning from a minor arm injury of his own. Since he didn't get fully ramped up after being shut down with forearm tightness, Lamet was capped at two innings (30 pitches) before giving way to Weathers, who worked three frames. Lamet should be cleared to work deeper into Monday's turn, especially after Weathers was used in a tandem Sunday with Chris Paddack, who was activated from the COVID-19 IL ahead of the series finale with the Giants. The Padres will likely wait and see how Lamet looks during Monday's outing before determining how he, Paddack and Weathers fit into the team's rotation plans moving forward.
Lamet came out of Tuesday's appearance against the Pirates without any setbacks, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.
Lamet threw only 30 pitches in the outing and experienced a drop in his velocity in the second inning, but manager Jayce Tingler suggested that the decline was likely due to rust rather than injury. If he continues feeling well throughout the week, Lamet could make his next start Sunday at San Francisco.
Lamet started Tuesday's 2-1 loss to San Diego and tossed two scoreless innings while allowing four hits.
Making only his second start of 2021, Lamet was on a pitch count and finished the game with 30 pitches. It was far from a clean outing, as he allowed two hits in each inning, and Alden Gonzalez of ESPN noted that Lamet's velocity ranged from 90-97 mph in his return from a bout with forearm tightness. His outlook remains clouded by the injury, but the fact that there were no reports of a setback suggests Lamet emerged from Tuesday's outing feeling fine.
Lamet (forearm) will start Tuesday's game against the Pirates.
He had been on the injured list with forearm tightness, but Lamet ended up missing less time than most would have guessed, given the fact he dealt with an elbow strain last September that was never operated on. It seems somewhat unlikely that he will pitch deep enough to qualify for the win.
Manager Jayce Tingler said Lamet (forearm) felt good coming out of his most recent bullpen session Sunday, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.
Both Lamet and Ryan Weathers (arm) were able to throw off a mound Sunday, but neither will be options to start in Monday's series opener against the Pirates. The nod will instead go to reliever Miguel Diaz in what's shaping up to be a bullpen game, but Lamet and Weathers will remain candidates to start Tuesday. Lamet's forearm injury is believed to be more serious than Weathers' arm issue, so it's possible the former will require more build-up time before the Padres are comfortable reinserting him into the rotation. Even if Lamet ends up getting the nod Tuesday, he'll likely be facing a limited pitch count.
Lamet (forearm) won't start Sunday's game against San Francisco.
The 28-year-old was in the mix to return from the injured list and take the mound Sunday, but Joe Musgrove will instead receive the starting nod. Lamet threw a 30-pitch bullpen session last Wednesday and could still be available Monday or Tuesday versus the Pirates.
Lamet (forearm tightness) could start Sunday's game against the Giants, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
It would be shocking to see Lamet take the hill this weekend after exiting a start April 21 with forearm tightness, but he threw a 30-pitch bullpen session Wednesday and he appears to be much closer to a return than originally anticipated. Even if he does start, it seems unlikely that he would log a full starter's workload in his first game back.
Lamet (forearm) is scheduled to throw live batting practice Wednesday, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
The right-hander's quick return to mound work is good news after he left his season debut April 21 after 29 pitches due to forearm tightness, and a positive session Wednesday should provide a barometer on where he stands in his recovery. Lamet could be cleared to return from the injured list within the next couple weeks with a strong showing against live hitters.
Lamet (forearm) was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Lamet exited his first start of the season after 29 pitches with right forearm tightness. The team continues to publicly state that his elbow and forearm are structurally sound, so he will not be sent for an MRI immediately. In surprising news, Lamet is expected to try to throw Friday and the team is shooting for him to make a start in 10 days, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.
The Padres are expected to place Lamet (forearm) on the 10-day injured list, but the club has no immediate plans to send him in for an MRI, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
According to Acee, the Padres are confident Lamet's elbow/forearm is structurally sound after sending him in for imaging repeatedly over the last several months. Even after Lamet exited his 2021 debut Wednesday with right forearm tightness, the Padres apparently don't believe that any meaningful information can be gleaned, so they'll instead wait and see how he responds to a few days of rest before determining his best course of treatment. The team hasn't provided a clear timeline for Lamet's return, but he'll most likely spend more than the minimum 10 days on the IL.
Lamet (forearm) will undergo an MRI after leaving Wednesday's start against the Brewers, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
It's not a surprising development after the right-hander's season debut Wednesday was cut short due to forearm tightness. Lamet originally suffered an elbow strain back in September, but he never underwent surgery and instead opted for the recovery route during the offseason. He threw 29 pitches and had four strikeouts over two innings before being lifted from his season debut versus Milwaukee. The 28-year-old should be considered out indefinitely for the time being, while Ryan Weathers is likely to remain in the starting rotation for San Diego.
Lamet left Wednesday's start against the Brewers with right forearm tightness.
Sadly, this development isn't surprising, given that Lamet suffered an elbow strain last September and never underwent surgery. He got some whiffs on his patented slider, but exited after just 29 pitches. He should be considered out indefinitely. Ryan Weathers will likely take his place in the rotation for the foreseeable future.
Lamet was removed from his start Wednesday against the Brewers after two innings due to an apparent injury, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports. He gave up no runs on a hit and a walk while striking out four prior to departing.
Making his 2021 debut after a prolonged recovery from the elbow strain he suffered last September, Lamet was expected to handle close to a normal workload after covering 75 pitches in his most recent simulated game prior to being activated from the 10-day injured list. Though he looked good during his time on the mound, Lamet's outing came to a surprising end after just 29 pitches. The Padres should provide an explanation later Wednesday regarding what prompted Lamet's early exit, but as Lin notes, manager Jayce Tingler said the primary goal was for the right-hander to finish his season debut healthy, regardless of the results. That goal evidently wasn't accomplished.
Lamet (elbow) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list ahead of Wednesday's start against the Brewers.
Lamet had been sidelined since September due to a strained UCL, but he'll be in line to make his season debut on normal rest Wednesday after he threw a 75-pitch simulated game Thursday. The right-hander will join San Diego's rotation after he posted a 2.09 ERA, 0.86 WHIP and 93:20 K:BB in 69 innings across 12 starts in 2020.
Padres manager Jayce Tingler confirmed that Lamet (elbow) will be activated from the 10-day injured list to start Wednesday's game against the Brewers, Daniel Guerrero of MLB.com reports.
Lamet had been considered a candidate to make his season debut either Tuesday or Wednesday, but the Padres will opt to give him a full five days of rest after he most recently tossed a 75-pitch simulated game Thursday. The right-hander will be filling the rotation spot previously occupied by Adrian Morejon, who was placed on the injured list earlier this month with a left elbow strain. Coming off a dazzling 2020 campaign in which he posted a 2.09 ERA, 0.86 WHIP and 93 strikeouts in 69 innings, Lamet will provide a boost to an already strong Padres rotation. That said, fantasy managers may want to temper expectations for Lamet to some extent as he returns from the UCL strain that's sidelined him since late September.
The Padres plan to activate Lamet (elbow) from the 10-day injured list this week to have him start either Tuesday or Wednesday against the Brewers, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.
Lamet's right elbow apparently checked out fine following a simulated game Thursday, clearing the way for him to make his 2021 debut. He threw approximately 70-to-75 pitches in that outing, so the Padres may be preparing for Lamet to push his count up to the 80-to-90 range in his first start of the season. If Lamet ends up getting the nod Tuesday ahead of Chris Paddack, he would line up for a two-start week. His second turn would then come Sunday in the final game of the Padres' four-game series in Los Angeles with the Dodgers.
Lamet (elbow) threw 70-75 pitches in a sim game Thursday and will toss a bullpen session this weekend, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.
Lamet has been increasingly ramping up and now appears close to making his season debut for the Padres. If his bullpen session goes well, he could return to pitch in San Diego's upcoming series against Milwaukee. The most logical target date would have Lamet starting Wednesday in the spot previously occupied by the injured Adrian Morejon (elbow).
