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.
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.
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 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.
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).
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
Weathers did not factor in the decision against the Dodgers on Friday, hurling 3.2 scoreless innings and allowing one hit and two walks while striking out three.
In his first major-league start, Weathers mostly stifled a potent Dodgers offense, though an elevated pitch count -- he threw 79 pitches, 46 of which were strikes -- prevented the rookie from getting past the fourth frame. It remains to be seen whether Weathers will get another chance in the rotation with Dinelson Lamet (elbow) close to returning to the rotation, but Weathers' effectiveness so far this season should at least allow him to remain in the bullpen. Across 9.2 innings, the southpaw has allowed only one run while striking out 10.
Weathers will start Friday's game against the Dodgers, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
The 21-year-old has picked up a save and a win while allowing one run over six innings through his first three big-league appearances, and he's now set to make his first start in the majors Friday. Weathers threw 31 pitches over two innings Saturday and is unlikely to have the workload of a traditional starter, so it's difficult to see him being able to qualify for a victory. The young left-hander receives a tough draw versus the reigning World Series champions, and it will likely only be a spot start before a return to the bullpen with Dinelson Lamet (elbow) closing in on being activated from the injured list.
Weathers (1-0) allowed one earned run on one hit and one walk while striking out three across two innings of relief, earning the win over the Rangers on Saturday.
Weathers has notched himself a win and a save in his first two major-league appearances. His only blemish Saturday came from a solo shot at the hands of Isiah Kiner-Falefa in the fifth inning. The 21-year-old is likely going to be a future starter, but he is currently making a name for himself in the pen.
Weathers earned the save Saturday against Arizona, throwing three scoreless innings and allowing one hit while striking out three.
The rookie looked superb in his regular-season big-league debut, throwing 25 of 38 pitches for strikes and allowing only one hit (a single). He entered the contest in the seventh inning with San Diego staked to a six-run lead and finished out the game to earn the save. Weathers figures to pitch in long relief to start the campaign, though he projects as a starter long term and could be among the first candidates to fill a rotation spot if the need arises.
Manager Jayce Tingler said Monday that Weathers will open the season as a member of the Padres' bullpen, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.
Though Weathers appears to have lost out to Adrian Morejon in the competition to replace Dinelson Lamet (elbow) as the club's fifth starter to begin the season, the 21-year-old lefty will have a spot waiting for him in the bullpen with seven Padres relievers set to open the campaign on the injured list. Weathers has yet to make his regular-season MLB debut, though the Padres thought enough of him to include him on their NLDS roster last fall. San Diego still plans to develop Weathers as a starter, but given the club's ample rotation depth, he's expected to see most of his opportunities as a reliever in 2021.
Weathers remains a candidate to open the season on the big-league roster, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.
Weathers struggled in a Cactus League start against the Mariners on Friday, allowing three runs on three hits and two walks while striking out four over 2.2 innings. His numbers overall this spring, which include a 7.11 ERA and 1.66 WHIP, aren't exactly impressive, but he has struck out 15 batters in 12.2 innings. San Diego's bullpen has been hit by multiple injuries of late, so Weathers could fill a long-relief role if he makes the cut. The left-hander could also feasibly used as a starter if the Padres decide to go with a six-man rotation.
Weathers has a legitimate chance to open the season on the big-league roster, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.
Weathers has held his own thus far in Cactus League play, allowing a pair of earned runs and striking out three over four innings. The Padres may have a need for a a fifth starter to open the campaign if Dinelson Lamet (elbow) needs more time to ramp up, and Weathers has been mentioned as a candidate for the role (along with fellow prospect MacKenzie Gore and Adrian Morejon). Even if he isn't tabbed as a temporary starter, Weathers could still open the campaign on the big-league roster as a multiple-inning reliever.
Weathers threw two innings in a simulated game Thursday, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.
Weathers continued his work to stretch out as a starter this spring while pitching against Eric Hosmer, Manny Machado and Tommy Pham. He reportedly generated several swings and misses without allowing any hard contact. Weathers isn't likely to start the season in the Padres' rotation, though it can reasonably be expected that he will make a significant impact with the club during the regular season.
Weathers is projected to be stretched into a starter at the beginning of spring camp, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.
Weathers made his big-league debut in the playoffs last season, coming out of the bullpen to toss 1.1 scoreless innings against the Dodgers in the NLDS. However, the southpaw has worked exclusively as a starter in the minors, compiling a 3.78 ERA and 108:22 K:BB over 114.1 frames. The 21-year-old is likely to open the campaign in the minors, but he could be a candidate for a big-league roster spot if a place in the rotation opens at some point in the season.
