  • Padres' Dinelson Lamet: Workload questions remain

    Uncertainty regarding Lamet's (elbow) ability to handle a full starter's workload this season was part of the motivation for the Padres' acquisition of Joe Musgrove, Alden Gonzalez of ESPN reports.

    General manager A.J. Preller maintained that Lamet is having a good offseason after undergoing platelet-rich plasma therapy to address an elbow problem, but that doesn't mean the Padres have full confidence in him heading into the upcoming campaign. The Padres now boast tons of rotation depth after trading for Musgrove, Blake Snell and Yu Darvish this offseason, which could allow them to give Lamet the occasional rest even if he's able to avoid the injured list. The righty is coming off a season in which he recorded an excellent 2.09 ERA and a 34.8 percent strikeout rate, but don't expect too many innings from a guy who has averaged just 47.3 per year over the last three campaigns.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Sent to San Diego

    Musgrove was sent from the Pirates to the Padres as part of a three-team deal which sent Joey Lucchesi to the Mets and a package of prospects to the Pirates, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

    The Padres evidently believe there's no such thing as too much pitching, as they've now added Musgrove, Blake Snell and Yu Darvish all in the same offseason. Musgrove may not be quite at the level of that pair, but he's coming off a strong season which saw him strike out 33.1 percent of opposing batters, smashing his previous career high of 21.9 percent, en route to a 3.86 ERA. He should see far more chances for wins for the rapidly improving Padres than he would have seen in Pittsburgh.

  • Padres' Dan Altavilla: Reaches deal with Padres

    Altavilla and the Padres reached a one-year, $850,000 deal Friday.

    Altavilla and San Diego won't require an arbiter during the offseason after agreeing to a one-year contract Friday. The right-hander was included on the team's NLDS roster in 2020 after he was acquired by the Padres at the trade deadline. He should take on a middle-relief role in 2021 after posting a 5.75 ERA and 1.48 WHIP over 20.1 innings with the Mariners and Padres during the shortened 2020 campaign.

  • Padres' Tommy Pham: No arbitration necessary

    Pham (wrist) and the Padres agreed to a one-year, $8.9 million deal Friday, avoiding arbitration, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.

    Pham gets a raise of exactly $1 million on the $7.9 million deal he signed the year prior. The Padres will be hoping for a big bounceback from Pham in his age-33 campaign, as he struggled to a .211/.312/.312 line in 31 games in his first year in San Diego last season. He missed time due to hand surgery and followed that up with a pair of surgeries in the offseason, one of which addressed a stab wound in his lower back while the other corrected an issue in his left wrist.

  • Padres' Dinelson Lamet: Avoids arbitration with Padres

    Lamet (elbow) agreed to a one-year, $4.2 million deal with the Padres on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    While Lamet is a big injury risk heading into 2021, that wasn't going to prevent him from getting rewarded handsomely on the heels of a season in which he logged a 2.09 ERA, 0.86 WHIP and 93 strikeouts in 69 innings. He underwent PRP therapy on his elbow in October in an effort to avoid surgery, but that doesn't mean he is out of the woods health-wise. There will likely be vague positive reports on his status throughout the offseason, but it would be nice to see him pitching well in games this spring before investing for the 2021 season.

  • Padres' Victor Caratini: Settles with Friars

    Caratini signed a one-year, $1.3 million contract with the Padres on Friday to avoid arbitration, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.

    The 27-year-old was acquired from the Cubs along with Yu Darvish in late December and won't require salary arbitration to officially get under contract for 2021. Caratini figures to work with Darvish and operate as the backup catcher to Austin Nola for San Diego.

  • Padres' Emilio Pagan: Reaches deal without arbitration

    Pagan and the Padres avoided arbitration with a one-year, $1.57 million deal Friday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

    The 29-year-old didn't produce his best work in 2020, posting a 4.50 ERA in 22 innings. The Padres will keep him around in hopes that he'll return to his 2019 form, when he produced a 2.31 ERA, a 36.0 percent strikeout rate and a 4.9 percent walk rate.

  • Padres' Samuel Zavala: Signs with San Diego

    Zavala signed with the Padres on Friday, Baseball America reports.

    Zavala has one of the prettiest left-handed swings in this year's class. He isn't overly projectable or speedy, so his fantasy appeal is all about the potential for a plus hitter with plus power.

  • Padres' Victor Acosta: Lands with Padres for $1.8 million

    Acosta signed with the Padres for $1.8 million Friday, Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com reports.

    A shortstop from the Dominican Republic, Acosta turned 16 in June, making him one of the youngest players in this class. He is also one of the best defensive prospects in the class. A plus runner with quick-twitch athleticism, Acosta is slowly growing into power and could be a big riser up prospect rankings as he matures.

  • Padres' James Reeves: Dealt to Padres

    The Yankees traded Reeves to the Padres on Wednesday in exchange for outfielder Greg Allen, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.

    Reeves was a low-level prospect for the Yankees, having made only one relief appearance at the Triple-A level since signing with the organization as a 10th-round pick in the 2015 first-year player draft. The lefty will likely begin the 2021 campaign with the Padres' Double-A affiliate in San Antonio.
