Padres' Dinelson Lamet: Tosses five shutout innings

Lamet (2-2) pitched five scoreless innings in a victory over the Reds on Sunday. He allowed just four hits and a walk while striking out a season-high seven batters. Lamet had his best outing of the year after lasting five innings for only the second time this year. He missed time earlier in the season because of a UCL strain he suffered in late September and has been continually working to build up his arm strength. He tossed a season-high 81 pitches and seems to be very close to being fully stretched out. The 28-year-old sports a 2.81 ERA and 37:11 K:BB over 32 innings and is in line for a juicy matchup against the Diamondbacks over the weekend.

Padres option Ryan Weathers to Triple-A as club solidifies five-man rotation with Dinelson Lamet

Wednesday morning, the Padres announced that left-handed pitcher Ryan Weathers had been optioned to Triple-A with righty James Norwood being called up in a corresponding move. On the surface level, this might raise a few eyebrows. After all, Weathers has a 2.47 ERA and 1.01 WHIP in his 47 1/3 innings this season and he's shown the ability to succeed as a starter or in long relief.

Colorado Rockies game no. 67 thread: Dinelson Lamet vs Austin Gomber

Coming off another road trip without a series win, the Colorado Rockies look to turn things around at home against the San Diego Padres. The Padres are looking for a reversal of recent fortune themselves - they are yet to win a series in the month of June and are wrapping up a quick road trip in Denver after dropping a series to the Mets out east.

Padres' Dinelson Lamet: Takes loss in short outing

Lamet (1-2) allowed one run on four hits and two walks over four innings Monday, striking out three and taking the loss against Colorado. Lamet clearly wasn't at his sharpest Monday as he allowed six baserunners and needed 75 pitches to get through four frames. He's yet to pitch more than five innings this season and has only gone past the fourth on just one occasion. The 28-year-old is sporting a 3.33 ERA and 30:10 K:BB through 27 innings this season. Lamet is lined up to face the Reds at home this weekend.

Padres' Dinelson Lamet: Loses rematch with Cubs

Lamet (1-1) lost Tuesday's 7-1 defeat at the hands of the Cubs, allowing four runs on four hits and a walk with six strikeouts over five innings. He left the game once he struggled in the sixth. Lamet cruised through five innings having allowed a single run and just two...

Padres' Dinelson Lamet: Early exit in no-decision

Lamet didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 10-3 extra-innings win over the Astros, giving up two runs on five hits and two walks over three-plus innings. He struck out three. The right-hander blanked Houston for three frames before running into trouble to begin the fourth, and Lamet got the...

Padres' Dinelson Lamet: Ready to start

Lamet is listed as the starter for Friday's game against the Astros, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports. The Padres have handled Lamet with extreme caution thus far this season due to the elbow issue that ended his 2020 campaign prematurely. He didn't make his season debut until late April and immediately hit the injured list for a brief period due to forearm tightness after making just one appearance. Three of his five outings thus far have counted as starts, though he's handled a similar workload in all five, lasting two innings in his first four and three in his most recent appearance. That suggests he's unlikely to last longer than four innings this time around, but a return to the rotation after making multi-inning relief appearances in each of his last two trips to the mound still represents progress.

Padres' Dinelson Lamet: Slated to start Tuesday

Lamet will start Tuesday's game against the Rockies, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Lamet's scheduled start Monday was postponed due to inclement weather, but he'll take the mound a day later. Yu Darvish was initially expected to start Tuesday but will now start Game 1 of Wednesday's doubleheader.

Padres' Dinelson Lamet: Monday start postponed

Lamet's scheduled start Monday against the Rockies has been postponed due to inclement weather. The game will be made up as part of a doubleheader on Wednesday. It's possible Lamet won't get to start until one of those two games, as ace Yu Darvish is scheduled to start Tuesday.

Padres' Dinelson Lamet: Ready to go for Monday start

Padres manager Jayce Tingler said Lamet will start Monday's game against the Rockies in Colorado, Annie Heilbrunn of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports. In his return from the 10-day injured list lat week, Lamet was deployed in a tandem with Ryan Weathers, who had been returning from a minor arm injury of his own. Since he didn't get fully ramped up after being shut down with forearm tightness, Lamet was capped at two innings (30 pitches) before giving way to Weathers, who worked three frames. Lamet should be cleared to work deeper into Monday's turn, especially after Weathers worked in a tandem Sunday with Chris Paddack, who was activated from the COVID-19 IL ahead of the series finale with the Giants. The Padres will likely wait and see how Lamet looks during Monday's outing before determining how he, Paddack and Weathers fit in the team's rotation plans moving forward.
