Padres' Ryan Weathers: Officially demoted
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Padres optioned Weathers to Triple-A El Paso prior to Wednesday's game against the Rockies.

San Diego recently moved from a six-man to a five-man rotation, resulting in Weathers shifting to a bullpen role. Because the Padres are still keen on developing Weathers as a starter long term, he'll head to Triple-A for the time being so as to remain on a normal throwing schedule. Weathers is presumably the first pitcher in line to join the big-league rotation if one of the Padres' five starters should miss time at any point.

Padres' Ryan Weathers: Heading to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weathers will be optioned to Triple-A El Paso on Wednesday, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Weathers recently took on a bullpen role as the Padres shifted to a five-man rotation, and he allowed a run on three hits and no walks while striking out one in three innings during his most recent relief appearance. While the southpaw has been relatively effective this season with a 2.47 ERA and 1.01 WHIP in 47.1 innings across 14 appearances (eight starts), the Padres feel as though he'll benefit from time as a regular starter at the Triple-A level. However, Weathers could certainly be an option to return to the major-league club as a starter or reliever at some point this year.

Padres' Ryan Weathers: Shifting to bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weathers will move to the bullpen during the upcoming week with the Padres set to scale back their rotation from six to five starters, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Weathers has fared well in a starting role this season, posting a 2.78 ERA over 32.1 innings. However, he has taken a small step back over his past two starts, allowing seven earned runs across 10 frames. In addition, the southpaw has yet to reach 100 innings in a professional season, so the move out of the rotation for now may help him contribute more later in the campaign.

Padres' Ryan Weathers: Works five innings in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weathers improved to 3-2 after working five innings and giving up three runs on five hits and a walk while striking out four in Monday's 9-4 win over the Cubs.

Though Weathers remains a member of the Padres' six-man rotation, the team continues to monitor his workload carefully after he had arm issues earlier in the season. The 21-year-old has yet to top 90 pitches in any of his eight starts, and he'll likely remain under a light restriction throughout the season. The southpaw maintains a shiny 2.44 ERA and 1.02 WHIP on the campaign, but his low innings counts and low strikeout rate (6.7 K/9) puts something of a cap on his fantasy upside.

Padres' Ryan Weathers: Goes five frames in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weathers (2-2) was charged with the loss against the Cubs on Tuesday after giving up four runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out two across five innings.

All of his damage came via a pair of home runs, including a two-run shot by Patrick Wisdom in the second inning and a two-run homer by Willson Contreras in the fifth. Weathers, who was facing the Cubs for the first time in his career, tossed 88 pitches (57 for strikes), eclipsing the 80-pitch mark for the second time this season. The southpaw has now completed at least four innings in each of his four starts since returning to the rotation. Through 13 appearances (seven starts) this year, Weather has compiled a a sturdy 2.06 ERA and 0.99 WHIP. He's projected to take the mound again Monday for a rematch with the Cubs.

Padres' Ryan Weathers: Another four-inning outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weathers allowed one hit and walked two while striking out five across four scoreless innings Thursday against the Brewers. He did not factor into the decision.

Weathers looked sharp in the outing, relying primarily on groundballs and strikeouts to throw four shutout frames. However, he was limited to 78 pitches and hasn't been allowed to work beyond four innings since experiencing joint inflammation in his throwing arm April 28. While he's allowed only four earned runs across 18 innings in five outings since, his short stints limit both his strikeout upside and potential to earn wins.

Padres' Ryan Weathers: Another short start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weathers started Saturday's 6-4 win over Seattle, going four innings and allowing one run on six hits and two walks with two strikeouts. He didn't factor into the decision.

The only real damage Weathers permitted was a Mitch Haniger solo home run in the third, though he did allow a season-high eight baserunners. His 67 pitches were about the norm as the most he's thrown in an outing is 89. It may be difficult for Weathers to record meaningful value without going the minimum five innings for a vital win.

Padres' Ryan Weathers: Four innings in spot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weathers pitched four innings in Sunday's 5-3 win over St. Louis, allowing two runs on four hits. He failed to record a strikeout and did not factor in the decision.

Weathers allowed all four hits allowed in the first inning, including a Nolan Arenado two-run home run, but he settled down to pitch a clean second through fourth. Manager Jayce Tingler appears content to deploy Weathers in a short-start/long-relief role, and with limited strikeout upside he most likely needs to pitch in a different role to become fantasy relevant.

Padres' Ryan Weathers: Starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weathers will start Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

The 21-year-old has pitched three innings of relief in each of his past two outings, but he'll make the start in Sunday's series finale versus St. Louis. Weathers may not pitch deep enough to qualify for the victory given his recent workload, and Dinelson Lamet could be in the mix to work behind him.

Padres' Ryan Weathers: Earns three-inning relief win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weathers (2-1) pitched three scoreless innings in relief, allowing just one hit and one walk while striking out three to earn the win against the Giants on Sunday.

Weathers relieved Chris Paddack in the fourth inning and cruised through three innings of his own. The 21-year-old has been able to succeed in multiple roles this season, carrying a 0.81 ERA and 0.72 WHIP with 20 strikeouts through 22.1 innings. Part of his success is his ability to avoid the long ball, as he's given up just one home run in eight appearances.

Padres' Ryan Weathers: Three innings in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weathers (1-1) took the loss in Tuesday's 2-1 defeat against the Pirates, pitching three relief innings and allowing four hits and one run with one strikeout.

Weathers followed starter Dinelson Lamet and pitched OK despite being saddled with the loss. He left his start last week with joint inflammation in his left arm. It's fair to expect San Diego to score more runs in the future and Weathers' 0.93 ERA and 0.72 WHIP in 19.1 innings show the potential he has if used consistently in this kind of role.

Padres' Ryan Weathers: Could piggyback Lamet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weathers (arm) won't start Tuesday against the Pirates, but he could still appear out of the bullpen, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Dinelson Lamet (forearm) will start the game, but whoever follows Lamet out of the bullpen may actually have a better chance of qualifying for the win, as Lamet will likely be handled carefully. Weathers is attempting to get past his own arm issue, as he experienced join inflammation and diminished velocity in his last start.

Padres' Ryan Weathers: Completes bullpen session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Padres manager Jayce Tingler indicated that Weathers (arm) felt good coming out of a bullpen session Sunday, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.

Both Weathers and Dinelson Lamet (forearm) were able to complete their respective side sessions without incident, leaving both in the mix to start Tuesday's game against the Pirates for the time being. The Padres will turn to reliever Miguel Diaz to make a spot start for Chris Paddack (COVID-19 injured list) in Monday's series opener, but he would likely head back to the bullpen or move back to the minors if both Weathers and Lamet are cleared to return Tuesday or at some point later in the week. Weathers experienced arm fatigue in his most recent outing April 28, but Tingler remains optimistic that the rookie will avoid a stint on the IL.

Padres' Ryan Weathers: Could make next start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weathers (arm) is progressing well and may be able to make his next start, Jay Posner of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports reports.

Weathers left his previous start April 28 against Arizona due to joint inflammation in his left arm, but he appears to have avoided serious injury and is said to be progressing well. Manager Jayce Tingler indicated Friday that the southpaw has "maybe a good chance" to be ready to pitch when his turn next comes up during the team's upcoming home series against Pittsburgh. That would be a significant boost to a Padres rotation that is currently dealing with uncertain return timeframes for Dinelson Lamet (elbow) and Chris Paddack (undisclosed).

Padres' Ryan Weathers: Exits due to joint inflammation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Jayce Tingler said after the Padres' 12-3 win over the Diamondbacks on Wednesday that Weathers is dealing with joint inflammation in his left arm, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Weathers tossed a scoreless first inning before exiting his start with what the Padres initially termed as left arm soreness, with Tingler clarifying afterward that the rookie isn't dealing with any ligament damage and is instead experiencing a case of "dead arm." Tingler noted that after starting the game with his velocity sitting in the 92-to-93 mile-per-hour range, Weathers dropped to around 87 or 88 before his night ended early. The Padres are hopeful that after receiving some treatment, Weathers will be able to make his next start, which would likely come next Tuesday against the Pirates.

Padres' Ryan Weathers: Leaves with arm soreness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weathers was removed from Wednesday's game against the Diamondbacks with left arm soreness.

The 21-year-old delivered a scoreless first inning Wednesday, but he was visited by the athletic trainer while showing decreased velocity and was pulled after the frame. The severity of the injury remains unclear, but it could be another tough blow for an already depleted pitching staff. Weathers' status for his next turn through the rotation will remain up in the air until more information is available.

Padres' Ryan Weathers: Sticking in rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Padres manager Jayce Tingler stated Friday that Weathers will remain in the starting rotation for the time being, Annie Heilbrunn of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Weathers has shone in his five appearances this season, yielding only one earned run over 15.1 innings while registering a 16:5 K:BB. In two starts against the division-rival Dodgers, the left-hander has given up no runs on only two hits across 9.1 frames. Weathers has been getting a look in the rotation with Adrian Morejon (elbow) out for the season and Dinelson Lamet (forearm) going to the 10-day IL after only one start. Even when Lamet returns, Weathers could remain a starter if he continues dominating opposing offenses.

Padres' Ryan Weathers: Impressive outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weathers tossed 5.2 innings of one-hit ball while allowing a walk and fanning six Thursday against the Dodgers. He didn't factor into the decision.

Weathers got the start in the series opener now that the Padres are using a six-man rotation for the time being, and he took advantage of the opportunity by limiting one of the best offenses in the league to just one hit across 5.2 innings -- he ended just one out away from posting a quality start. As things stand now, Weathers is slated to take the ball next week on the road against the Diamondbacks.

Padres' Ryan Weathers: Gets Thursday start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weathers will start Thursday's series opener against the Dodgers in Los Angeles, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.

Manager Jayce Tingler previously said that Weathers would receive his second start of the season this week as part of a temporary six-man rotation for the Padres, but the young lefty could have the opportunity to stick around as a full-time starter if he delivers a quality outing Thursday. Though San Diego brought back Dinelson Lamet from the injured list to start Wednesday, he pitched just two innings in the Padres' loss to the Brewers before exiting with right forearm tightness. A return to the IL is almost certainly on tap for Lamet, and with Adrian Morejon (elbow) undergoing Tommy John surgery earlier this week, Weathers should be in good position to hold down a starting job if the Padres decide to shorten their rotation to five men.

Padres' Ryan Weathers: To remain in rotation for now
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weathers has earned another start and will remain in the starting rotation for the time being, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.

Weathers worked 3.2 scoreless frames in his last outing Friday against the Dodgers, and even with the return of Dinelson Lamet (elbow) arriving later in the week, the club plans to keep the southpaw in the rotation moving forward. Lin notes that the Padres may elect to roll with a six-man rotation temporarily as a result of this decision.
