Margevicius was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma on Tuesday.
Margevicius was a surprising member of the Padres' Opening Day rotation last season despite previously never pitching above High-A. He won't be opening the year on the big-league roster this time around, and his 6.79 ERA in 57 innings as a rookie hardly suggests he'll be much of a fantasy asset if and when he returns to the big leagues.
Margevicius will start Friday's Cactus League game against the Dodgers, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
Marco Gonzales, who was originally scheduled to start Friday, will instead pitch in an intersquad game during the afternoon. Margevicius struggled during his rookie campaign with the Padres in 2019, posting a 6.79 ERA, 1.61 WHIP and 42:19 K:BB across 57 innings (12 starts). The 23-year-old will attempt to make the most of his opportunity with Seattle this spring, but is likely to open the year in the minors barring multiple pre-season injuries to the Mariners' starting rotation.
Margevicius was claimed off waivers by the Mariners on Friday.
Margevicius was a surprising addition to the Padres' Opening Day roster despite never having previously pitched above High-A. He didn't exactly make that seem like a great decision by San Diego, stumbling to a 6.79 ERA in 12 starts and five relief appearances while striking out just 16 percent of opposing batters. It's unclear if the Mariners view him as a serious rotation candidate or if they'll give him the chance to continue his development in the upper levels of the minors.
Margevicius was designated for assignment by the Padres on Friday, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Margevicius appeared in 17 games for San Diego a season ago, posting a 6.79 ERA and 1.61 WHIP with a 42:19 K:BB over 57 innings (12 starts). Assuming he clears waivers, he figures to be assigned to Triple-A El Paso.
Margevicius was recalled from Triple-A El Paso on Wednesday.
Margevicius will provide the Padres with a fresh bullpen arm ahead of Wednesday's bullpen game. In 12 appearances with the big club this season, the lefty owns a 6.41 ERA, 1.57 WHIP and 38:17 K:BB in 53.1 innings. Austin Allen was sent to the minors to free up a roster spot for Margevicius.
Margevicius was optioned to Triple-A El Paso on Monday.
Margevicius was shelled for nine runs over 1.1 innings Sunday in Colorado, so he'll head to the minor leagues following a disastrous outing. Through 12 starts with San Diego this season, he owns a 6.41 ERA and 1.58 WHIP with a 38:17 K:BB over 53.1 frames.
Margevicius allowed nine runs on 11 hits and one walk across 1.1 innings in a no-decision Sunday against the Rockies. He struck out one.
Margevicius endured a nightmare first inning in which the home team plated six runs while making him work for his three outs. He came back out for the second but was pulled after allowing four straight hits, and his relievers ultimately tacked on three more runs to his ledger. Margevicius had been lackluster in most of his recent appearances, but this dreadful start inflated his ERA to 6.41, so his role could be in flux over the coming days.
Margevicius is scheduled to start Sunday's series finale against the Rockies, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Margevicius originally lined up to pitch Thursday's series opener but will slide back in the rotation with Matt Strahm (ribs) making his return from the injured list. The 21-year-old hasn't given up a homer in his last two outings, but he's yielded 11 round trippers through 52 innings overall this season.
Margevicius pitched 3.2 scoreless innings Friday and came away with a no-decision, allowing three hits while striking out three in a 5-4 win over the Nationals.
Margevicius did better in his second start after a recall from Double-A Amarillo, but he was still limited to 54 pitches Friday. Through 11 starts spanning 52 innings, the rookie owns a 5.40 ERA and 1.43 WHIP with 37 strikeouts. He's next projected to start in Colorado on Thursday, which is likely a start fantasy GMs will want to avoid.
Margevicius (2-6) took the loss Saturday as the Padres fell 9-3 to the Marlins, giving up five runs (four earned) on six hits and a walk over three-plus innings while striking out one.
The southpaw was effective the first time through the order, but Miami jumped all over him in the fourth inning -- Margevicius allowed the first six batters he faced in the frame to reach base before he got the hook. It's not yet clear whether he'll remain in the rotation or head back to Double-A Amarillo, but his 9.17 ERA and 8:6 K:BB over his last four starts and 17.2 innings in the majors isn't encouraging.
Margevicius was recalled as expected ahead of his scheduled start against the Marlins on Saturday.
Margevicius returned after a brief stay in the minors. He allowed 11 runs in nine innings over his last two starts prior to his demotion. Phil Maton was optioned to Triple-A El Paso in a corresponding move.
Margevicius will be recalled Saturday to start against the Marlins, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Margevicius was a surprising member of the Padres' Opening Day rotation, having never previously pitched above the High-A level. Given that context, his 4.96 ERA through nine starts wasn't particularly poor, but it nevertheless saw him sent back to the minors in mid-May. It's unclear if he'll be back to stay or if he's simply making one spot start before returning to Double-A Amarillo.
Margevicius was optioned to Double-A Amarillo on Sunday.
Margevicius had an ugly start Saturday against the Pirates as he served up four home runs, bringing his season total of homers allowed to 11 over 45.1 innings. The 22-year-old has a 4.96 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 33:15 K:BB through nine starts after making the jump from High-A to the majors this season.
Margevicius (2-5) took the loss Saturday as the Padres fell 7-2 to the Pirates, coughing up six runs on eight hits -- including four home runs -- and a walk over four-plus innings while striking out two.
The rookie southpaw is in a tailspin. After a few solid outings to begin his big-league career, Margevicius now has a 6.75 ERA, 1.77 WHIP, 21:14 K:BB and 2.8 HR/9 over his last six starts (29.1 innings). Cal Quantrill is set to return to the majors Sunday as the Padres' sixth starter, but if he's effective there's no guarantee he's the one that will be sent back down afterwards.
Margevicius (2-4) took the loss against the Rockies on Sunday, giving up five earned runs on eight hits over five innings, striking out five and walking one in a 10-7 loss for the Padres.
Margevicus had a tough time at Coors Field, with most of the damage against him coming on a pair of long balls he yielded to Charlie Blackmon. The outing moves his ERA to 4.14 to go along with a 1.28 WHIP and a 31:14 K:BB through 41.1 innings.
Margevicius allowed three runs on seven hits and three walks in 5.2 innings Sunday, taking the no-decision in the win over the Dodgers.
It was a rather lackluster outing for Margevicius, but he held the Dodgers scoreless until Max Muncy crushed a three-run shot off him in the fifth inning. The 22-year-old southpaw left the game in line for a victory, but his bullpen took that away from him. He'll take a 3.47 ERA into a tough matchup in Colorado on Saturday.
Margevicius (2-3) took the loss against the Braves on Monday, giving up three runs (one earned) on four hits over 5.2 innings, striking out three and walking one as the Padres fell 3-1.
It was a nice start for the 22-year-old left-hander, but he ended up taking his third loss of the season thanks to errors by his defense that led to two unearned runs and a strong outing from Braves starter Mike Soroka. Margevicius is still off to a good start to 2019, as he's now sporting a 3.23 ERA, a 1.11 WHIP and 26 strikeouts through 30.2 innings while holding opponents to a .209 batting average. He's lined up to take on the Dodgers at home in his next start on Saturday.
Margevicius evened his record to 2-2 while holding the Mariners to two runs over five innings in Tuesday's 6-3 victory. He struck out four and gave up four hits and five walks in the outing.
Due largely to his ability to keep the ball in the yard, Margevicius has navigated the majors' elevated power environment well thus far. His ability to avoid the long ball proved particularly useful Wednesday with his control betraying him, which came as a surprise after he had issued only two free passes in his prior four starts. An xFIP that's nearly 70 points higher than his ERA (3.60) suggests that Margevicius' performance may be due for a step back, but a strong 23:7 K:BB in 25 innings provides some optimism that any downturn might not be too severe.
Margevicius (1-2) allowed five earned runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out seven across four innings of work to take the loss Tuesday against the Rockies.
Margevicius struggled throughout his start, allowing at least one extra-base hit in each of his first three innings. On top of that, he struggled to control the Rockies' running game by surrendering four stolen bases -- three to Trevor Story. The one positive takeaway from Margevicius' start was his ability to miss bats, as he racked up 13 swinging strikes to back his seven strikeouts. He'll look to bounce back in his next start, tentatively lined up for Tuesday against the Mariners.
Margevicius (1-1) got the win against the Giants on Wednesday, giving up one earned run on five hits over six innings, striking out six and walking none as the Padres bagged a 3-1 victory.
It was another strong effort from the left-hander, and he recorded his first victory of the season coming off two solid starts to start the year that resulted in a no-decision and a hard-luck loss. He now has a 1.69 ERA and 0.63 WHIP to go along with a 12:1 K:BB in 16 innings over his three starts. He'll look to keep it rolling in his next start, which will come at home against a struggling Colorado club Tuesday.
