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.
Margevicius allowed one run on one hit and a walk and struck out one over five innings Friday against the Cardinals. He didn't factor into the decision.
Margevicius began his start with three no-hit innings before finally allowing a solo homer to Paul DeJong in the fourth. Despite a sharp outing, Margevicius would exit the ballgame down by a run before the Padres ultimately took the lead in the sixth inning. The 22-year-old doesn't possess superior velocity, but he's surrendered just two runs on four hits and a walk in his first two appearances of 2019. He'll toe the rubber next against the Giants on Wednesday.
Margevicius will start Friday against the Cardinals after Thursday's game was postponed due to inclement weather, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
The Padres won't have to make any changes to their rotation as both teams had a scheduled off day Friday. Margevicius looked sharp in his MLB debut last week, allowing one run on three hits while striking out five in five innings against the Giants.
Margevicius (0-1) earned a loss in his MLB debut, but he allowed just one run on three hits and zero walks while striking out five in five innings as the Giants beat the Padres 3-2.
The 22-year-old shut out the Giants in the first five innings, but after Margevicius yielded a single to start off the sixth, the Padres turned to their bullpen, which ended up yielding three runs in the frame. The Padres almost got Margevicius off the hook by scoring in the bottom of the inning, but they only pulled within a run, and then there was no more scoring the rest of the night.
Margevicius' contract was officially selected by the Padres on Saturday.
The 22-year-old is set for his debut Saturday against San Francisco despite never appearing above High-A. He's owns a 3.00 ERA in two minor-league seasons, striking out 26.0 percent of opposing hitters while walking just 3.0 percent. Socrates Brito was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.
Margevicius will start Saturday against the Giants, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
We knew there would be a mystery starter for this game, but the assumption was that it would be a prospect of note -- either Logan Allen or Cal Quantrill. Margevicius is a 22-year-old lefty who has never pitched above High-A. He logged a 4.50 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 12 strikeouts in 12 innings (four starts) this spring, and he is stretched out (threw four innings on March 19), so it is possible he will be more than just an opener. That said, expectations should be very low, even with a favorable matchup against the Giants.
