Wingenter tossed a scoreless sixth inning, allowing two hits and striking out one to earn a hold in Saturday's 7-5 loss to the Braves.
The reliever was able to keep his line clean before the game turned into a back-and-forth affair. Wingenter is up to 12 holds this year with a 3.34 ERA and 1.03 WHIP across 35 innings. The 25-year-old also has a 47:17 K:BB and a 1-1 record in his 35 appearances.
Wingenter (shoulder) was activated off the 10-day injured list Sunday.
Wingenter had been on the IL for about two weeks with right shoulder inflammation and is able to make his return without a rehab assignment. The 25-year-old has a 2.93 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 21:8 K:BB through 15.1 innings and should return to a high-leverage role for the Friars.
Wingenter (shoulder) threw a simulated inning Saturday, Bill Center of MLB.com reports.
Wingenter has been on the shelf for just shy of two weeks with a right shoulder strain. His return date remains unclear, but Monday appears to be a potential target.
Wingenter (shoulder) completed a bullpen session Thursday, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.
The side session was Wingenter's second in three days, suggesting he's progressing well in his recovery from right shoulder inflammation. The Padres will reassess Wingenter's condition Friday and could activate him from the 10-day injured list at some point during the weekend.
Wingenter (shoulder) threw a bullpen session Tuesday, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Wingenter was eligible to be activated off the 10-day injured list Tuesday but will instead require a few extra days before returning to the majors. The Padres may have the 25-year-old throw another bullpen session before activating him, but it doesn't sound as though a minor-league rehab assignment will be necessary.
Wingenter was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right shoulder strain Sunday.
The move was made retroactive to Saturday, so Wingenter is eligible to return May 14. The Padres have yet to specify a target return date for the righty. Phil Maton was recalled from Triple-A El Paso in a corresponding move.
Wingenter was credited with a hold in the Padres' 4-3 win over the Braves on Wednesday, throwing a scoreless inning while recording one strikeout and no walks.
The right-hander continues to excel in the early going out of the Padres' bullpen, as this latest scoreless effort gives him a 2.51 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 18 strikeouts over 14.1 innings. With Kirby Yates dominating as San Diego's closer, Wingenter doesn't figure to see many save opportunities, but he at least looks primed to continue to provide solid ratios and high strikeout totals.
Wingenter got the save against the Diamondbacks on Thursday, working around two walks to record a scoreless ninth inning and close out San Diego's 7-6 victory. He struck out two.
Kirby Yates has already made eight appearances, so Wingenter got the nod as the closer in this contest and successfully protected a one-run lead despite issuing two free passes. Yates remains the unquestioned go-to option for the role, so Wingenter shouldn't be expected to see these chances frequently aside from days when Yates needs a rest. However, Wingenter already has three holds on the year, so perhaps he's improving his standing in the pecking order as an alternative should Yates miss time.
Wingenter struck out one without allowing a baserunner over a scoreless inning in the Padres' 4-1 victory over the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.
Wingenter has been getting his fair share of work in the early going with four appearances in seven games, and he's done well with the opportunities thus far, allowing one earned run and striking out four batters over that time, although he has allowed four hits and a walk to leave his WHIP at 1.50. The right-hander had a 3.79 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and five holds to go along with a 27:11 K:BB over 19 innings of work as a rookie last season. He'll look to continue to build trust and establish himself as a fixture in the Padres' bullpen.
Wingenter (back) allowed one run on two hits in one inning Sunday against the Diamondbacks.
Wingenter was unavailable for a few days after getting hit with a liner last week, but he was cleared to return over the weekend. The 24-year-old reliever now owns a 2.84 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 8:3 K:BB across 6.1 innings with the Padres this season.
Wingenter (back) was able to play catch Friday after getting hit by a line drive during Thursday's game, Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
There has yet to be word as to whether Wingenter will be available out of the bullpen, but it's likely that manager Andy Green would've tried to refrain from using him anyways after the right-hander recorded four outs Thursday. Consider him day-to-day moving forward.
Wingenter was removed from Thursday's 5-1 loss to the Diamondbacks after being struck in the back by a liner in the top of the sixth inning, the Associated Press reports.
With Padres starting pitcher Jacob Nix failing to escape the first inning after surrendering five runs, the team needed five relievers to finish out the game. One of those summoned from the bullpen was Wingenter, who struck out the side in the fifth before coming back out for another inning. He retired the first batter of the frame before A.J. Pollock sent one back up the middle off the pitcher's back. The right-hander is considered day-to-day and will presumably be re-evaluated prior to Friday's game.
Wingenter will be promoted from Triple-A El Paso on Sunday, Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Wingenter will bring his high-90s fastball and developing slider to San Diego on Sunday. The 24-year-old right-hander has struck out 53 batters over 44.1 innings with El Paso, adding a 3.45 ERA and 1.20 WHIP.
