Lamet (elbow) was moved to the 60-day disabled list Saturday, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.
Lamet is out for the entirety of the 2018 season after electing to undergo Tommy John surgery. He was moved to the 60-day DL in order to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for Tyler Webb, who was claimed off waivers from Milwaukee. Assuming a typical recovery timeline, Lamet will be able to return midway through the 2019 season.
Lamet (elbow) will undergo Tommy John surgery and miss the rest of the 2018 season, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Lamet underwent an MRI April 2, but the Padres did not release the results of the exam as they wanted to attempt the rehab route before ultimately turning to surgery. The 25-year-old had worked his way up to throwing from 90 feet last week in his rehab effort, but he apparently was still feeling tightness in his elbow which led to the decision to opt for surgery. The promising right-hander will miss the rest of 2018 and will likely be out for the start of the 2019 season, as well.
Lamet (elbow) progressed to throws from 90 feet Saturday, Dennis Lin of The Athletic San Diego reports.
Lamet threw from 60-feet on flat ground Friday and continues to advance quickly through his recovery, with manager Andy Green indicating Lamet felt "very good again." The 25-year-old will likely continue throwing at 90 feet Sunday but still has no definitive timetable for his return.

Lamet is moving quickly through his throwing program, as he returned to throwing from a stationary position Thursday. No firm timetable for his return has been released, though this relatively torrid throwing program pace makes it seem like he won't miss that much more time.
Lamet (elbow) threw from a knee and from a stationary position Thursday, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Even though the results of his MRI have yet to be released, it's encouraging to see that the team is confident enough in his health to let him throw again. Lamet has been out since late March and still isn't expected back until, May at the earliest, but it seems like the worst-case scenario has been avoided in this instance.
