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 and his minor-league results along with an arsenal that features four potential plus pitches make his upside as high as any of his organizational mates.
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.
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 Sunday, 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.
Gore (finger) was activated from the 7-day disabled list Sunday, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Gore is set to come off the disabled list and start Sunday's game with Low-A 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.
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.
