Padres' Adrian Morejon: Not included on Opening Day roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morejon did not make the cut for a spot on the Padres' 30-man roster.

Morejon was said to be making a push for a roster spot after looking good in intrasquad action, but the southpaw will instead begin the season at the team's alternate training site. He could be among the primary candidates for a move to the big-league club if the need for a multi-inning reliever or spot starter arises during the season.

Padres' Adrian Morejon: Making case for roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morejon has impressed in intrasquad games and is pushing for a spot on the Padres' initial 30-man roster, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

Prior to the cancellation of the minor-league season, Morejon was expected to work as a starter at Triple-A. Instead, the southpaw is battling for a spot on the team's Opening Day roster. Though a big-league role remains far from certain, Morejon could theoretically help the club as a short-inning starter, a multi-inning reliever or an opener.

Padres' Adrian Morejon: Viewed as starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morejon was being stretched out as a starter in spring training before play was suspended, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Though Morejon started every minor-league game in which he pitched last season, he was used primarily as an opener, logging only 36 innings over 16 outings. He then functioned as an opener and bullpen piece during his five outings in the big leagues, allowing nine earned runs over eight innings. Morejon's diverse arsenal -- he throws a mid-to-upper-90s fastball along with two changeups and a curveball -- bodes well for his potential a starter, but he has yet to show that he can stay healthy enough to endure the workload that accompanies such a role.

Padres' Adrian Morejon: Moving to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morejon was optioned to minor-league camp Wednesday.

Morejon was attempting to earn a spot on the Friars' Opening Day roster, but he'll end up beginning the season in the minors. The left-hander made his major-league debut last season with five appearances, but he spent most of 2019 at Double-A Amarillo with a 4.25 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 44:15 K:BB across 36 frames.

Padres' Adrian Morejon: Moves to 60-day injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morejon (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Monday.

The move has no effect on Morejon's return timeline, as he's already been ruled out for the year with a shoulder impingement. It clears a 40-man roster space for Garrett Richards' return from Tommy John surgery.

Padres' Adrian Morejon: Won't return from IL in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morejon (shoulder) won't pitch again for the Padres this season, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.

Morejon has been on the injured list since early August with the left shoulder impingement and won't rejoin the Friars this season. It's the second time in 2019 the 20-year-old has battled a shoulder impingement, but Morejon is progressing towards a return to full health and has resumed throwing. He allowed nine runs on 15 hits over eight frames in his first taste of the majors this season.

Padres' Adrian Morejon: On IL with shoulder injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morejon was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday with a left shoulder impingement.

The biggest knock on Morejon so far in pro ball has been his lack of durability. He missed time earlier this year with a shoulder injury and has never logged 70 innings in a season. Jose Castillo was activated from the 60-day IL in a corresponding move.

Padres' Adrian Morejon: Shifts to bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morejon worked out of the bullpen in the Padres' four-game series with the Dodgers over the weekend. He appeared only in Thursday's 8-2 loss, striking out four but giving up two runs on five hits in two innings.

Morejon started in two of his prior three appearances for the Padres, though he acted as more of an opening pitcher in both of those outings. In an effort to limit the young lefty's workload over the final two months of the season, Morejon likely won't be asked to cover more than three innings in any of his subsequent appearances with the big club. Expect the Padres to work him in mainly in lower-leverage situations until his performance warrants a move up in the bullpen hierarchy.

Padres' Adrian Morejon: Struggles with control in start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morejon completed 1.2 innings and gave up two runs on two hits and three walks while striking out two against the Giants on Sunday. He did not factor into the decision.

Morejon hurled one inning three days prior and was not expected to pitch more than a few innings Sunday in what was essentially a bullpen game. He struggled with his command, throwing only 22 of 40 pitches for strikes and walking three batters while giving up a pair of runs. The 20-year-old worked primarily as a limited-inning opener with Double-A Amarillo this season, so it stands to reason that he may be asked to fill a similar role for as long as he is with the big club.

Padres' Adrian Morejon: Draws start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morejon is listed as the Padres' starting pitcher for Sunday's game against the Giants.

Morejon essentially worked as an opener in his MLB debut exactly one week earlier against the Cubs, yielding a run over 2.1 innings before giving way to primary pitcher Cal Quantrill. Since that outing, Morejon has made only a one-inning relief appearance Thursday against the Mets, so he may not be asked to cover more than two or three frames as he re-enters the rotation Sunday. The Padres haven't indicated whether a primary pitcher will be deployed behind Morejon, so manager Andy Green could treat the series finale as more of a bullpen game.

Padres' Adrian Morejon: Yields run in debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morejon allowed one run on three hits over 2.1 innings as the opener Sunday, striking out one batter and taking a no-decision in the win over the Cubs.

The 20-year-old rookie made his MLB debut as the opener and did a decent job. Morejon got in some trouble in the first inning, allowing hits to Javier Baez and Kris Bryant before an RBI groundout from Anthony Rizzo. It's unclear how long he'll stay with the big club, but he's used to working in an opening role as he's done so for most of 2019 with Double-A Amarillo.

Padres' Adrian Morejon: Officially recalled
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morejon was called up from Double-A Amarillo on Sunday.

Morejon is set to make his major-league debut as the official starter Sunday against the Cubs. However, reports prior to his callup indicate that he'll be used as an opener. It would be surprising to see him work deep into the game, as he has pitched more than two innings only once since mid-April. Cal Quantrill is expected to work as the primary pitcher after Morejon bows out.

Padres' Adrian Morejon: To open Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morejon will be recalled to open Sunday's game against the Cubs, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

The Padres' official announcement lists Morejon as the starter, but the expectation remains that he'll be used in the opener role, according to Acee. That would match his usage at Double-A Amarillo, where he's been the first pitcher for his team in all 16 of his appearances but hasn't been asked to pitch more than three innings since mid-April and has only gone longer than two innings once during that stretch. Expect him to turn the ball over to Cal Quantrill after a frame or two Sunday.

Padres' Adrian Morejon: Could fill opener role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morejon is a candidate to be used as an opener Sunday against the Cubs, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Morejon has exclusively been a starter thus far in his professional career, but he's expected to be called up as a reliever Saturday. Serving as an opener would be an easy way to smooth his transition to the big leagues, as he'd get to warm up prior to the game as he's used to. The Padres haven't officially confirmed what his role will be.

Padres' Adrian Morejon: To join Padres' bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morejon is expected to be recalled from Double-A Amarillo ahead of Saturday's game against the Cubs, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.

Morejon has posted a 4.25 ERA with 44 punchouts through 36 innings with the Poodles this season, and he's set to join the major-league club as of Saturday. It's also worth noting that he's tossed seven consecutive scoreless frames in relief at Double-A, per Lin.

Padres' Adrian Morejon: Cleared to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morejon (shoulder) is scheduled to start for Double-A Amarillo on Wednesday, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Morejon is ready to rejoin the Sod Poodles' rotation after missing the past two weeks with a sore left shoulder. Prior to suffering the injury, the 20-year-old southpaw posted a 5.66 ERA and 28:11 K:BB in 20.2 innings (seven starts).

Padres' Adrian Morejon: Still nursing sore shoulder
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morejon hasn't pitched for Double-A Amarillo since May 22 while managing recurring soreness in his left shoulder, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Morejon was previously shut down for nearly a month earlier in the season with shoulder discomfort, so it's somewhat disconcerting that he's dealing with the same injury three outings after returning from the 7-day injured list. On a positive note, Amarillo has thus far resisted placing him on the IL, suggesting his latest setback isn't quite as significant. The 20-year-old has been able to play catch in recent days and could be cleared to rejoin the rotation later this week.

Padres' Adrian Morejon: Returns from injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morejon (shoulder) returned from the injured list Monday, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Morejon missed three weeks with back and shoulder injuries. He recorded a 6.59 ERA in four starts or Double-A Amarillo prior to suffering the injury.

Padres' Adrian Morejon: Hopes to return in two weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morejon (shoulder) hopes to return to the mound in two weeks, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Morejon was placed on the minor-league injured list after experiencing minor muscle fatigue in his shoulder and lower-back tightness Tuesday. He is expected to resume throwing this weekend.

April 25, 2019 04:32 PM
Padres' Adrian Morejon: Injury not deemed serious
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morejon (shoulder) was evaluated by doctors Wednesday, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

Morejon landed on the minor-league injured list earlier in the week after experiencing tightness in his back and shoulder, though the injury isn't thought to be anything overly serious. Depending on how the young lefty feels in the coming days, he could be cleared to resume throwing over the weekend.
