Padres' MacKenzie Gore: Could advance to majors quickly
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gore could be called up to the Padres "fairly quickly, if not right away" if there is a 2020 season, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.

The organization's top pitching prospect struggled this spring before play was suspended, allowing three runs in 1.2 innings and notching a 2:2 K:BB. Nonetheless, Lin reports that scouts noted that he "wasn't far off," and the likelihood of expanded rosters increases Gore's chances of making his big-league debut at some point during the campaign.

Padres' MacKenzie Gore: Fires quick inning in spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gore needed only eight pitches to register three outs in his spring training debut Thursday.

Gore, the Padres' top pitching prospect, retired the side in order on a pair of grounders and a pop fly. The southpaw figures to open the season at the Double-A level, but he has progressed through the minors quickly and could find his way onto the big-league club before long.

Padres' MacKenzie Gore: Making spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gore is scheduled to make his Cactus League debut Thursday against the Mariners, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

The Padres' top pitching prospect has been fully healthy during his first big-league camp; his lack of spring innings to date is likely just a measure to keep his workload in check. Though Gore doesn't look like he's being evaluated for a spot in the Opening Day rotation, the 21-year-old lefty could get a look with the big club at some point in 2020 if he proves he can handle upper-level minor-league competition. Gore is likely slated for a return to Double-A Amarillo to begin the campaign after he posted a 4.15 ERA and 25:8 K:BB in 21.2 innings with the affiliate following his July promotion from the California League.

Padres' MacKenzie Gore: Invited to Padres' camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gore was invited to the Padres' major-league spring training Thursday.

Gore made his debut in Double-A last season, posting a 4.15 ERA with a 1.32 WHIP over 21.2 innings. While Gore probably won't open the season in the majors, he'll get the chance to work with the major-league coaching staff and could make his debut in the big leagues at some point in 2020 if he can continue to develop.

Padres' MacKenzie Gore: Assigned to AZL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gore was transferred from Double-A Amarillo to the AZL Padres on Wednesday.

The move is purely procedural, as Gore has reached his workload limit for the season and won't pitch in the Texas League playoffs. By moving the southpaw to rookie ball, Amarillo opens up a roster spot for another player. Gore finishes an exceptional season with a 9-2 record, 1.69 ERA, 0.83 WHIP and 135:28 K:BB in 101 innings between two levels.

Padres' MacKenzie Gore: Activated for Tuesday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gore is starting for Double-A Amarillo on Tuesday, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Gore has not pitched since Aug. 2 as the Padres decided to limit his workload after injuries held him to only 60.2 innings in 2018. He has been throwing on the side, however, in anticipation of possibly participating in the Double-A playoffs. The Padres' top pitching prospect has compiled a 9-2 record along with a sterling 1.72 ERA, 0.84 WHIP and 130:27 K:BB while holding batters to a .166 average in 19 minor-league starts this season.

Padres' MacKenzie Gore: Shut down due to workload
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gore has been shut down for workload purposes, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

This isn't all too surprising, as the well-regarded prospect has already surpassed his innings total from an injury-marred 2018 campaign by nearly 40 frames. Gore will continue to pitch on a semi-regular schedule on the side to remain active, and the Padres haven't ruled out letting the 20-year-old return to action during the Double-A playoffs. Across 99.1 innings between High-A Lake Elsinore and Double-A Amarillo this season, Gore owns a stellar 1.72 ERA, 0.84 WHIP and 130:27 K:BB.

Padres' MacKenzie Gore: Promoted to Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gore was promoted to Double-A Amarillo on Tuesday, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.

Gore could hardly have performed better in 15 starts for High-A Lake Elsinore, posting an incredible 1.02 ERA and striking out 38.2 percent of opposing batters while walking just 6.9 percent. The 20-year-old is in line to make his big-league debut at some point in 2020 if his progress continues at a similar pace.

Padres' MacKenzie Gore: Tosses 100-pitch gem
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gore threw 6.2 shutout innings for High-A Lake Elsinore on Wednesday, giving up three hits, striking out nine and walking one.

Gore has been tossing gems for the Storm all season. However, this is nothing new, but this outing was notable in that it was the first time in the 20-year-old's professional career that he's hit the 100-pitch threshold. He's been virtually untouchable in the California League, as his latest brilliant outing leaves him with a 1.12 ERA, a 0.69 WHIP and a 101:17 K:BB in 72.1 innings.

Padres' MacKenzie Gore: Keeps dealing in High-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gore tossed a pair of scoreless innings for High-A Lake Elsinore on Wednesday, giving up one hit, striking out four and walking one.

The Padres are carefully monitoring the workload of their highly touted pitching prospect, which is why this was an abbreviated outing. That figures to be a theme throughout the season for Gore, but the 20-year-old left-hander is proving to be a healthy step above the competition in the California League, as this scoreless effort lowers his ERA to 1.13 to go along with 77 strikeouts through 55.2 innings.

Padres' MacKenzie Gore: Lowers ERA to 1.15 at High-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gore struck out eight over five scoreless, no-hit innings Sunday in High-A Lake Elsinore's 8-0 win over Lancaster. He issued two walks and allowed no other baserunners in the 74-pitch outing.

The Padres are overflowing with intriguing pitching prospects at multiple levels of the organization, but perhaps no hurler boasts as high of a ceiling as Gore. With the health issues that plagued him in 2018 now in the rear-view mirror, the 20-year-old lefty has taken off over his first six outings in the hitter-friendly California League. Gore has surrendered just four runs through 31.1 innings while posting a 45:6 K:BB and limiting opposing batters to a .143 average. A promotion to Double-A Amarillo could soon be in the cards for Gore if he continues to befuddle Cal League hitters in his subsequent outings.

Padres' MacKenzie Gore: Dominating High-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gore gave up one run on three hits over six innings for High-A Lake Elsinore on Tuesday, striking out nine with one walk, Bill Center of Padres.com reports.

Gore is dominating opponents through four starts for Lake Elsinore, as this outing gives him a 1.23 ERA, 0.88 WHIP and 27 strikeouts over 22 innings. The 2017 first-round pick is showing why he's one of the team's more highly rated prospects, and is making a strong case for a promotion to Double-A in the early going.

Padres' MacKenzie Gore: Starting year at High-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gore will open the 2019 season with High-A Lake Elsinore, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Gore will move up to the California League after compiling a 4.45 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 74:18 K:BB in 60.2 innings for Low-A Fort Wayne last season before he was shut down in late August with a fingernail issue. He reported to camp at full strength and shouldn't be limited health-wise to begin the 2019 campaign, though the Padres will surely monitor the 20-year-old lefty's innings carefully throughout the season.

Padres' MacKenzie Gore: Out with fingernail issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gore was placed on the disabled list at Low-A Fort Wayne on Wednesday with a fingernail issue, Bill Center of MLB.com reports.

Gore has been on the DL three times this season, twice with blisters and now with a fingernail problem. When healthy, he's posted strong underlying stats (28.4 percent strikeout rate and 6.9 percent walk rate) but a mediocre 4.45 ERA.

Padres' MacKenzie Gore: Continuing to dominate at Low-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gore has posted a 2.25 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 43:13 K:BB in 32 innings over his last seven starts at Low-A Fort Wayne.

Gore has allowed no more than two earned runs in any of those outings and has covered at least five innings on five occasions. The 19-year-old lefty is one of several impressive arms in a deep Padres system: His minor-league results and arsenal that features four potential plus pitches make his upside as high as any of his organizational mates.

Padres' MacKenzie Gore: Whiffs 10 in start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gore tossed five innings and struck out a career-high 10 batters for Low-A Fort Wayne in its 2-1 loss to Peoria on Sunday. He gave up two runs on three hits and three walks in the outing.

Gore has been magnificent since coming off the 7-day disabled list in early June, posting a 2.25 ERA and 35:10 K:BB over 28 innings in his seven starts. The 19-year-old has covered at least five frames in each of his last three turns and may not need much more development time at Fort Wayne before the Padres decide to test him with an assignment in the California League.

Padres' MacKenzie Gore: Excels in return from DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gore (finger) struck out three over two no-hit innings in his return from the 7-day disabled list Sunday in Low-A Fort Wayne's 15-0 win over Lansing.

Aside from a walk and hit batsman, Gore was flawless in his return from nearly a month-long absence due to a blister on his throwing hand. The lefty was limited to only 36 pitches, but he should see that count rise in his subsequent starts as he builds his arm up again following the layoff. Despite a bumpy start to his first taste of full-season ball, the 19-year-old remains a top pitching prospect in the San Diego system and one of the most highly touted hurlers in the lower levels of the minors.

Padres' MacKenzie Gore: Returns from DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gore (finger) was activated from the 7-day disabled list Sunday at Low-A Fort Wayne, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Gore is set to come off the DL and start Sunday's game for Fort Wayne after missing roughly the past three weeks with a blister on his throwing hand. The 19-year-old southpaw held a 10.13 ERA (3.52 FIP) over eight innings prior to his placement on the DL.

Padres' MacKenzie Gore: Out again with blister
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gore was placed on 7-day disabled list at Low-A Fort Wayne on Monday due to a blister on his throwing hand, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

The young lefty missed nearly a month earlier in the season with the same issue, limiting him to just three starts with Fort Wayne thus far. Gore has yielded nine earned runs in eight innings, but it's tough to judge his performance in a small, injury-affected sample. Padres minor-league pitching coordinator Eric Junge said he expects Gore to miss at least a couple of starts due to the latest setback, so don't expect him back on the mound until around early-to-mid-June.

Padres' MacKenzie Gore: Hit hard in return from DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gore (finger) allowed four runs in two innings pitched in his return from the disabled list for Low-A Fort Wayne on Tuesday, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

The pitching prospect wound up missing just under a month due to a blister on his left middle finger. Gore fanned two in a scoreless first inning, but got hit hard in the second inning. The 19-year-old has now allowed six earned runs in five innings pitched for the TinCaps, but at least he has a 7:2 K:BB in that span.
