Padres general manager A.J. Preller said Wednesday that Lamet (elbow) isn't expected to require offseason surgery, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Lamet and Mike Clevinger (elbow) both ended up finishing the Padres' playoff run in the training room, but the two starting pitchers are expected to treat their respective injuries with rest and rehab this winter rather than having to go under the knife. Before being left off the postseason roster for the wild-card and NLDS rounds, Lamet was at least able to throw off flat ground, so he's at least made progress on some level since exiting his final start Sept. 25 with the elbow injury. Expect Lamet to gradually ramp up his throwing program throughout the winter with the aim of being back to 100 percent for spring training.
Lamet began platelet-rich plasma therapy on his right elbow Monday, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Lamet missed the playoffs due to an issue which had been referred to as biceps tightness, though the injury is apparently located in his elbow. He reportedly has no ligament issues, however, and is expected to be ready to pitch by the start of spring training. Still, the fact that he's dealing with elbow problems again after previously undergoing Tommy John surgery in 2018 undoubtedly adds some risk to his profile heading into next season.
Lamet (biceps) did not make the Padres' NLDS roster.
While the Padres did get Mike Clevinger (biceps/elbow) back for the series, they're still without one of their best arms in Lamet. The news isn't a big surprise, as reports on his health have been rather pessimistic in recent days. It's still possible he's able to return for future playoff rounds should the Padres manage to upset their division rivals.
The Padres don't anticipate having Lamet (biceps) available for their NLDS matchup with the Dodgers that begins Tuesday, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.
Nightengale's dispatch doesn't come as a major surprise after reports surfaced over the weekend indicating that Lamet had been able to play catch but had yet to receive clearance to resume throwing off the mound. With that in mind, unless Lamet is able to toss a bullpen session Monday, the Padres seem likely to exclude him from the 28-man NLDS roster that the team will release a few hours prior to the 9:38 p.m. ET start time for Tuesday's Game 1. Lamet, who also missed the Padres' wild-card series win over the Cardinals, hasn't pitched since Sept. 25 due to the sore right biceps.
Padres manager Jayce Tingler said Lamet (biceps) remains day-to-day ahead of the team's divisional-round series with the Dodgers that begins Tuesday, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.
Lamet's sore right biceps prevented him from pitching in the wild-card series win over the Cardinals, but both he and Mike Clevinger (elbow) remain possibilities to rejoin San Diego's pitching staff this week. At this stage, Lamet is playing catch but has not yet been cleared to throw off a mound, which may put him on the outside looking in for a spot on the 28-man roster for the upcoming series. The Padres will have to set their roster Tuesday, hours before the 9:38 p.m. ET start time for Game 1.
Lamet (biceps) isn't included on the Padres' 28-man roster for the team's wild-card series with the Cardinals.
Neither Lamet nor Mike Clevinger (elbow) will be available this week, leaving the San Diego rotation shorthanded in the three-game series. Lamet will still be included on the Padres' 40-man postseason roster pool, so he could be an option to pitch in the divisional round if he makes good progress in his recovery from the right biceps injury.
Lamet (biceps) could be ready to pitch Game 1 or Game 2 of the NL Wild Card Series against the Cardinals, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.
Lamet played light catch Saturday after he was removed from his final start of the regular season with biceps tightness. The right-hander still hasn't been officially cleared to start in the Padres' first series of the playoffs, but the team remains optimistic that Lamet and Mike Clevinger (elbow) could each be available to start. Chris Paddack and Zach Davies are candidates to start in the series.
Lamet (biceps) will play light catch Saturday, and manager Jayce Tingler remains optimistic that he'll be able to pitch in San Diego's first postseason game, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.
Lamet reportedly felt slightly better Saturday than he normally does the day after a start. Assuming his throwing session Saturday goes well, the right-hander could throw a bullpen sometime in the next two days. The team didn't feel as though he needed an MRI after leaving Friday's contest with tightness in his bicep. Tingler said that Lamet still has "a long ways to go" before he's cleared to pitch in Game 1, but early reports regarding his status are encouraging.
Manager Jayce Tingler said Friday that Lamet is dealing with tightness in his bicep, but he's optimistic that he'll be able to make his next start, Bob Scanlan of FOX Sports San Diego reports.
Tingler said that Lamet will throw a bullpen prior to the postseason, and he was hopeful that he'd be able to return to the mound for the wild-card round. More clarity on his status should come after his bullpen, but Tingler's optimism surrounding the issue is encouraging.
Lamet suffered an elbow injury during Game 2 of Friday's doubleheader against San Francisco, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Lamet was pulled from Friday's nightcap in the fourth inning, and the team revealed that he's dealing with an elbow injury. The severity of the injury isn't yet known, and it's unclear whether the issue will impact his availability during the postseason.
Lamet exited Game 2 of Friday's doubleheader against the Giants with an apparent injury, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.
Lamet struggled slightly in the fourth frame as he allowed a run to come across, and he left the game with a trainer with two outs in the inning. The nature and severity of his injury remain to be seen.
Lamet will start one of the games during Friday's doubleheader against the Giants, Bernie Wilson of The Associated Press reports.
The 28-year-old previously lined up to start Saturday's contest, but he'll be pushed up a day and make his final start of the regular season during the twin bill. The move better situates Lamet to start early in the playoffs for the Padres.
Lamet allowed a run on two hits and two walks and struck out 10 in six innings in a no-decision versus the Mariners on Sunday.
Lamet left Sunday's contest in position for the win after Wil Myers' go-ahead, three-run homer in the sixth. That opportunity vanished when Padres reliever Emilio Pagan allowed a two-run blast to Dylan Moore. Despite the lack of a result, Lamet was again excellent. He has a 2.07 ERA, 0.87 WHIP, 89:19 K:BB and a 3-1 record in 65.1 innings across 11 starts. Lamet will likely make his last regular-season start Saturday versus the Giants.
Lamet (3-1) allowed one run on three hits and two walks and struck out 11 over seven innings in a win over the Dodgers on Monday.
Lamet went toe-to-toe with Clayton Kershaw and got the better of the Dodgers' ace in this game. The only run Lamet allowed came on a Corey Seager groundout in the third inning. Lamet has struck out 11 in each of his last two starts. The 28-year-old has a 2.12 ERA, 0.89 WHIP and 79:17 K:BB in 59.1 innings this season. The right-hander's next start is expected to be Sept. 22 versus the Angels.
Lamet allowed six hits and struck out 11 over 7.2 scoreless innings in a no-decision versus the Rockies on Monday.
Lamet was dealing Monday, but a lack of run support denied him a chance for his third win. He also recorded double-digit strikeouts for the second time in nine starts this year. Lamet has a 2.24 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 68:15 K:BB across 52.1 innings this season. The right-hander's next start is expected to be Saturday versus the Giants.
Lamet didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's win over the Angels. He allowed three runs on five hits and one walk while fanning six across 6.1 innings.
Lamet has been one of the most surprising pitchers in the NL this season and, even though he has allowed three runs in each of his last two starts, he is yet to give up more than three earned runs in any of his eight outings to date. He owns a 2.62 ERA and a 0.94 WHIP in 44.2 innings in 2020 -- both numbers would be career-high marks for the 28-year-old right-hander.
Lamet allowed three runs on five hits and two walks across five innings in Game 1 of Thursday's doubleheader against the Mariners. He struck out six and did not factor in the decision.
Lamet got through the first three innings unscathed, but allowed a two-run homer to Jose Marmolejos and an RBI single to Shed Long in the fourth. He bounced back in the fifth to retire Seattle in order but was pulled after walking Austin Nola to start the sixth. It marked a season high in runs allowed by the right-hander, but he still sports a tidy 2.35 ERA to go along with 51 strikeouts on the campaign. Lamet is scheduled to take the ball Wednesday in Anaheim.
Lamet won't start as scheduled Wednesday against the Mariners as the two teams agreed to postpone the contest in protest of the recent police shooting of Jacob Blake, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.
The game is the second of the day to be postponed in protest, as the Brewers and Reds also reached an agreement earlier in the evening. The game will be made up as part of a doubleheader Thursday, with Lamet starting Game 1.
Lamet did not factor into the decision during Thursday's win against the Rangers, giving up two runs on two hits and three walks while striking out nine across five innings.
Lamet, who had allowed only one earned run in his first five starts this season, surrendered a two-run shot to Jose Trevino in the fifth inning. Otherwise, the 28-year-old ace in the making turned in a solid performance, though his teammates did not come through with the win until the 10th frame. Lamet currently leads the Padres with 45 strikeouts and a 1.89 ERA. Next up, he'll face off with the Mariners on Wednesday.
Lamet's next scheduled start has been pushed back from Wednesday to Thursday, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.
The Padres moved both Lamet and Chris Paddack back one day in the rotation. The change was likely made to simply give the two pitchers an extra day of rest. Although Lamet was effective in his last start, he was charged with a loss and will attempt to return to the win column at home against the Rangers on Thursday.
