Padres' Adrian Morejon: Struggles in short outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morejon picked up the loss as the opener in Game 3 of the NLDS against the Dodgers on Thursday, giving up three runs on two hits and two walks in just two innings while striking out two batters.

The brief outing was seemingly the plan all along, as Morejon had averaged 2.03 innings per appearance in his 11 previous outings this season. He retired the side in the first inning but struggled in the second, allowing three baserunners and one run. He stayed in the game to start the third but allowed both of the first two batters to reach base, both of whom would come around to score. It was a disappointing outing for the talented young lefty, but the mere fact that he was trusted to open the game with the Padres' season on the line indicates how highly the team thinks of him.

Padres' Adrian Morejon: Starting Game 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morejon will start Game 3 of the NLDS against the Dodgers on Thursday, Bob Scanlan of FOX Sports San Diego reports.

The 21-year-old will take the mound with the Padres' season potentially on the line. Morejon won't operate as a traditional starter as his highest pitch count this season was 41 pitches, but he should be able to cover a few innings if he's effective. The left-hander has provided three scoreless frames in the playoffs and had a 4.66 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 25:4 K:BB over 19.1 innings during the regular season.

Padres' Adrian Morejon: Fans four in short outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morejon allowed one run on three hits across 2.2 innings Sunday, striking out four in the win over the Giants. He did not factor in the decision.

The only major blemish against Morejon on Sunday was a solo homer by Mauricio Dubon in the second inning. He threw 25 of 40 pitches for strikes and tied his season high with four strikeouts. He finished the regular season with a 4.66 ERA over 19.1 innings.

Padres' Adrian Morejon: Starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

The lefty will make his ninth appearance (fourth start) in San Diego's regular-season finale with Mike Clevinger (biceps) injured and Garrett Richards shifted to the bullpen. Morejon has not pitched more than three innings in an appearance this season. He should make the postseason roster in a long-relief role after turning in a 4.86 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 21:4 K:BB in his first 16.2 innings of 2020.

Padres' Adrian Morejon: Works three innings Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morejon allowed a run on two hits and struck out three over three innings Saturday versus the Mariners.

Morejon's one mistake was a solo home run to Kyle Lewis, but that had no impact on the result of the game. The 21-year-old Morejon has pitched at least 1.1 innings in all seven of his appearances this year, totaling 15.2 innings overall. He has a 2.87 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 20:2 K:BB. Morejon is expected to mostly be used in multi-inning relief assignments as he was Saturday, although he has also started three games in 2020.

Padres' Adrian Morejon: Takes loss vs. Dodgers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morejon (2-1) took the loss Wednesday against the Dodgers, allowing two runs (one earned) on two hits across two-plus innings. He struck out three and did not issue a walk.

Morejon was called upon to start the bullpen game for San Diego. He worked into the third inning, with his lone earned run allowed being a solo homer to A.J. Pollock. The left-hander, who was tagged with his first loss of the season, is expected to continue working out of the bullpen going forward.

Padres' Adrian Morejon: Starting Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morejon will start Wednesday's game against the Dodgers, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

The Friars are expected to employ a bullpen day in Wednesday's series finale, and Morejon will be the first reliever on the mound. The 21-year-old has a 2.53 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 14:2 K:BB through 10.2 innings this season.

Padres' Adrian Morejon: Cause of brief absence revealed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morejon's two-day stint on the injured list last weekend was due to a headache, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

While a headache would not typically be considered cause for an IL stint in a normal season, the issue is listed as a symptom of COVID-19, thus necessitating an abundance of caution. Morejon's headache may have been brought on by the altitude in Denver, though he was able to recover from the issue and clear testing protocols in time to throw three scoreless innings against Colorado on Monday.

Padres' Adrian Morejon: Earns win in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morejon (1-0) earned the win Monday against the Rockies after tossing three scoreless innings, allowing four hits and striking out two.

Morejon piggybacked Garrett Richards, who tossed 3.2 scoreless frames, to earn his first win of the season in his first appearance since returning from the injured list. It's currently unclear if the left-hander will make his next appearance as a starter or in relief, but the most important thing is that he's back with the team and seemingly healthy.

Padres' Adrian Morejon: Activated from injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morejon was activated from the injured list ahead of Monday's game against the Rockies, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Morejon was placed on the injured list Saturday, with team declining to go into details surrounding the southpaw's health. It wound up being just a short stint on the injured list for the left-hander. Morejon was previously scheduled to start last Saturday against the Rockies, but it's currently unclear if he will make his next appearance as a starter or in relief.

Padres' Adrian Morejon: Placed on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morejon was placed on the 10-day injured list for an undisclosed reason Saturday.

Morejon was scheduled to start Saturday against the Rockies, but it's unclear when the southpaw could return to action. Michel Baez will start in his place Saturday.

Padres' Adrian Morejon: Set to start Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morejon is scheduled to start Saturday against the Rockies, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.

Morejon was not guaranteed another start after going just 1.2 innings in his last one, but he will hold down a spot in the rotation for at least one more turn. He will have his work cut out for him Saturday, as he will be pitching in Coors Field and taking on a Rockies team that owns an .870 OPS in its home park.

Padres' Adrian Morejon: Avoids loss in short outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morejon yielded three runs on three hits and a walk across 1.2 innings Sunday, striking out three in the win over the Astros. He did not factor in the decision.

The Astros pounced on Morejon early, tagging him for three runs in the first frame, including a two-run blast by Kyle Tucker. Fortunately, the bullpen shut Houston down the rest of the afternoon and the offense pushed ahead for a victory to prevent the 21-year-old lefty from picking up his first loss. It's unclear if Morejon will get another turn in the rotation, but if he does, he'll carry a 5.79 ERA into Colorado later this week.

Padres' Adrian Morejon: Slated to start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morejon will start Sunday's game against the Astros, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.

The lefty will get another turn through the San Diego rotation after striking out four in three no-hit innings during his 2020 debut Tuesday against the Rangers. Morejon tossed only 39 pitches in that outing, so he could be capped at around 50-to-60 pitches Sunday as the Padres look to manage the young southpaw's workload carefully. San Diego doesn't have a clear primary pitcher available to work behind Morejon, so expect the team to use multiple relievers once the 21-year-old exits the contest.

Padres' Adrian Morejon: Posts three scoreless frames
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morejon allowed zero hits and one walk over three shutout innings during Tuesday's win over the Rangers. He had four strikeouts but did not qualify for the decison.

The 21-year-old's first outing of 2020 was a successful one, as he delivered 26 of his 39 pitches for strikes while holding down the Rangers in the opener role. Morejon would presumably receive more opportunities based on Tuesday's performance, but it's unclear how the Friars plan to utilize him moving forward with the rest of the rotation currently healthy.

Padres' Adrian Morejon: Called up by Padres
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morejon was recalled from the Padres' alternate training site Tuesday.

Morejon was on San Diego's taxi squad and will serve as the opener for Tuesday's contest against the Rangers. The southpaw has likely been throwing with the alternate club over the start of the season, but he presumably won't be asked to take on a heavy workload in Arlington. Morejon hasn't appeared in the majors in 2020 but posted a 10.13 ERA and 2.25 WHIP over eight major-league innings last year.

August 18, 2020 09:56 AM
Padres' Adrian Morejon: In line to start Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Padres plan to call Morejon up from their taxi squad to start Tuesday's game against the Rangers, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

The team has yet to make the move official, but Morejon is in line to make his 2020 debut in Texas. Though Morejon has presumably been throwing regularly since summer camp ended, the Padres likely won't ask him to work deep into Tuesday's start, so he may end up serving as more of a glorified opener in front of a long-relief option like Luis Patino. Morejon struggled in five games for the Padres a season ago, accruing a 10.13 ERA and 2.25 WHIP with nine strikeouts across eight innings.

Padres' Adrian Morejon: Added to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morejon was added to the Padres' taxi squad Sunday, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

The left-hander will join San Diego for its game in Arizona on Sunday and then head to Texas for a two-game series at the start of the week. Morejon offers plenty of versatility, as he has experience as a starter, opener and traditional reliever.

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.
