Lamet pitched four scoreless innings in a Cactus League game against Seattle on Wednesday, allowing one hit while striking out three.
Lamet has shined as one of the most impressive hurlers in Cactus League play, starting three games without allowing an earned run. In those contests, he has pitched nine innings and has allowed only three hits and one walk while striking out 11 batters. Lamet's dominant spring has cemented his place near the front of San Diego's regular-season rotation.
Lamet hurled two scoreless innings against Cincinnati on Saturday, allowing one hit and one walk while striking out three.
Now two seasons removed from Tommy John surgery, Lamet has emerged as a popular breakout candidate following a 14-game stint in the majors last season during which he struck out 105 batters in 73 innings. He's a lock to open the campaign in the Padres' rotation, and he has the tools -- including a fastball that sits in the mid-90s -- to put it all together this season if he can stay healthy.
Lamet signed a one-year, $1.3 million deal with the Padres on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.
Lamet underwent Tommy John surgery in spring 2018 and returned to the mound for the Padres just before the All-Star break in July. The 27-year-old had a 4.07 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 105:30 K:BB over 73 innings (14 starts) and should factor into San Diego's starting rotation in 2020.
Lamet gave up four runs on six hits and two walks while striking out 10 through five innings in a no-decision agains the Dodgers on Wednesday.
Lamet allowed three runs in the first two innings, but settled down to only give up one more run in his final three frames. Lamet registered 11 swinging strikes and 18 called strikes, but he also allowed three home runs. Lamet registered 24 strikeouts in his final two starts. The 27-year-old will finish the season with a 3-5 record with a 4.07 ERA and 105 strikeouts through 73 innings.
Lamet is scheduled to make his final start of the season Wednesday against the Dodgers.
Lamet would have been available to take the hill in Tuesday's series opener on five days' rest, but the Padres elected to expand the rotation to six men and give the right-hander an additional day of rest following his dazzling 14-strikeout outing Sept. 18 in Milwaukee. The right-hander has been spectacular since the beginning of August, turning in a 3.20 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 65 strikeouts over an eight-start stretch. His move back in the Padres' pitching schedule robs him of a two-start week, but Lamet still looks like a solid lineup option in most formats based on the form he's displayed lately.
Lamet (3-5) picked up the win Wednesday, giving up one run on three hits and three walks over six innings while striking out 14 in a 2-1 victory over the Brewers.
The 14 whiffs were a career high for the 27-year-old, and the main blemish on his performance was a solo shot by Keston Hiura in the sixth inning. Lamet will take a 3.84 ERA and 95:28 K:BB through 68 innings into his next start Tuesday, at home against the Dodgers.
Lamet (2-5) allowed three earned runs on four hits and two walks while striking out seven across five innings to take the loss Thursday against the Cubs.
Lamet's major stumble came in the fourth inning, when he allowed the first two runners to reach base -- both of which ultimately came around to score. However, he continued to rack up strikeouts, generating 14 swinging strikes on 74 total pitches. While he's worked more than five innings only three times in his last seven outings, Lamet has 81 punchouts across 62 innings for the season. He's scheduled to take the mound next on Wednesday at Milwaukee.
Lamet (2-4) was charged with the loss against the Rockies on Friday, giving up three runs (one earned) on six hits and a walk with four strikeouts over six innings.
Lamet earned his second quality start of the season in 11 starts despite taking the loss. The only run he was responsible for came in the first inning after he allowed a leadoff single and a stolen base to Trevor Story, who then scored on an RBI single by Charlie Blackmon. Unfortunately, the Padres failed to provide him with enough run support. The 27-year-old right-hander will carry a 3.95 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 74:23 K:BB into Wednesday's contest against the Cubs.
Lamet (2-3) took the loss Friday, allowing three runs (two earned) on three hits and two walks while striking out 10 over five innings versus the Giants.
A fielding error in the first inning accounted for the unearned run when Brandon Belt hit one of two homers off Lamet. The other long ball came from Mike Yastrzemski. Lamet has now allowed eight homers over 10 starts. It was the right-hander's second double-digit strikeouts performance of the year. Lamet owns a 4.24 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 70:22 K:BB over 51 innings. The 27-year-old is expected to draw the start at home next Friday versus the Rockies.
Lamet did not factor into the decision against Boston on Saturday, pitching five innings and giving up four runs on six hits and three walks while striking out five.
Lamet breezed through the first two innings but ran into trouble in the third, giving up a run on a pair of singles and a hit batsman. He then gave up three more runs in the fourth frame when the first four Boston batters reached base via two singles, a double and a walk. The four-run outing snapped a streak of six consecutive starts in which Lamet gave up three earned runs or less. The 27-year-old owns a 4.30 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 60:20 K:BB in 46 innings this season and will head to San Francisco for his next scheduled start against the Giants on Friday.
Lamet (2-2) picked up the win in Saturday's 5-3 victory over the Phillies, allowing three runs on six hits and a walk over six innings while striking out six.
The right-hander now has two quality starts in eight trips to the mound since returning from Tommy John surgery, and those performances account for his two wins. Lamet will take a 3.95 ERA and 55:17 K:BB through 41 innings into his next outing, at home against the Red Sox on Aug. 24.
Lamet allowed two runs on three hits with three walks and seven strikeouts across five innings during a no-decision against the Rockies on Sunday.
The 27-year-old tossed five shutout frames to start the game, but to begin the sixth, he allowed a single and then a homer to somewhat spoil his great work. Lamet departed immediately after giving up the home run. Still, he owns a 1.50 ERA with 19 strikeouts in his last 12 innings. Lamet, who will pitch next at the Phillies on Saturday, is 1-2 with a 3.86 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 49 strikeouts in 35 innings this season.
Lamet (1-2) earned the win against Seattle on Tuesday, hurling seven scoreless innings and allowing two hits and four walks while striking out 12.
Lamet was unhittable most of the night, as he allowed only four baserunners -- all on walks -- through six innings. He began the seventh with a strikeout but subsequently lost the no-hitter when Omar Narvaez lined a clean single to center field. He then allowed a double to Kyle Seager before inducing a popout and a strikeout, the latter of which brought him to 12 total whiffs in the game to tie his career high. The dominant performance earned Lamet his first victory since 2017 and ended a string of three straight no-decisions. The 27-year-old will look to build upon the strong outing in his next appearance, a home start against the Rockies on Sunday.
Lamet gave up three runs on five hits and two walks while striking out five through five innings in a no-decision against the Orioles on Tuesday.
Lamet sailed through the first three innings, but labored in the fourth as the Orioles reached him for three runs on two hits and three walks. He bounced back to register a scoreless fifth inning before departing after throwing a season high 88 pitches. The 27-year-old has a 5.09 ERA with a 1.39 WHIP and a 30:9 K:BB in 23 innings this season. Lamet is displaying strikeout upside, but he still struggles with command and hasn't pitched more than five innings since returning from Tommy John surgery. Lamet will make his next start next Tuesday on the road in Seattle.
Lamet gave up two runs on four hits and one walk while striking out six through four innings in a no-decision against the Mets on Wednesday.
Lamet had 16 swinging strikes and showed flashes of dominance, but he also labored through four innings, running his pitch count to 80 without making it into the fifth. The 27-year-old has a 5.00 ERA with a 12.5 K/9 and 3.5 BB/9 through four starts this season. While Lamet has huge strikeout upside, he is also struggling with his command and hasn't pitched more than five innings since returning from Tommy John surgery. Lamet will make his next start Tuesday against the Orioles at Petco Park.
Lamet allowed three runs (one earned) on six hits with two walks and five strikeouts across four innings during a no-decision against the Marlins on Thursday.
This start was definitely a step in the right direction for the 26-year-old. Thanks to an error, the Marlins scored two runs in the second inning. Lamet gave up another home run -- his fourth in three starts this season -- but that was the only earned run he yielded, and the Padres offense managed to tie the game to get Lamet off the hook. It's a small sample, but Lamet is 0-2 with a 5.14 ERa, 1.43 WHIP and 19 strikeouts in 14 innings this season. He will start next at the Mets on Wednesday.
Lamet (0-2) took the loss Friday against Atlanta after allowing four runs on five hits and two walks while striking out seven over five innings.
Making just his second start since 2017, Lamet put together a decent showing against the Braves. The 26-year-old started off strong by punching out Ronald Acuna Jr., but surrendered a double to Dansby Swanson, a walk to Freddie Freeman and a three-run homer to Josh Donaldson to give the Braves the lead. Acuna Jr. then hit a solo shot off Lamet in the fifth for the final damage of the night. Despite the loss, the right-hander has a good chance at remaining in the Padres' rotation. Over two starts this year, Lamet owns a 6.30 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 14:4 K:BB.
Lamet (0-1) was charged with the loss Thursday at Dodger Stadium, recording seven strikeouts while surrendering three runs on three hits and two walks over five innings.
Making his first major-league appearance since undergoing Tommy John surgery 15 months ago, Lamet proved he has much left to offer with a solid outing against a powerful Dodgers lineup. The 26-year-old retired the side in the first inning with just nine pitches but slipped up in the second by allowing a solo home run to Max Muncy. Lamet kept the Dodgers' bats quiet until the fifth, when he ran into trouble by loading up the bases on a pair of walks and a single. Lamet worked a full count to opposing pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu but managed to strike him out. The 26-year-old then allowed a run by hitting Joc Pederson with a pitch and gave up a sacrifice-fly RBI to Alex Verdugo before finally escaping the inning. The right-hander will almost certainly continue on in the rotation following the All-Star break.
Lamet (elbow) was activated from the 60-day injured list as expected ahead of his season debut Thursday against the Dodgers.
Lamet's 28.7 percent strikeout rate as a rookie back in 2017 gave him a bit of hype during last year's draft season, but Tommy John surgery in April of 2018 put that on hold for a while. He remains an interesting arm now that he's healthy again, though it's not yet clear how much his workload will be limited as he eases his way back into big-league action.
Lamet (elbow) will make his season debut Thursday against the Dodgers, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Lamet is nearly ready to go after recovering from last April's Tommy John surgery. He recorded an unimpressive 4.57 ERA in his 21-start debut back in 2017 but struck out a promising 28.7 percent of opposing hitters. He'll likely have his workload carefully managed the rest of the season, especially in his first few outings.
