'The most exciting thing I've ever been a part of': Padres-Dodgers rivalry comes to life

  'The most exciting thing I've ever been a part of': Padres-Dodgers rivalry comes to life Perhaps the two best teams in baseball, the Dodgers and Padres face off 19 times this season after meeting in the 2020 postseason.The guttural sounds of “Beat LA!" chants echoing throughout the night.

The Padres have gone the series without their two best starting pitchers, right-handers Dinelson Lamet and Mike Clevinger, and they’ll turn to reliever Craig Stammen as an opener Friday. If Stammen & Co. manage to lead San Diego past St. Louis, though, the Padres could see Lamet and Clevinger Lamet and Clevinger are undoubtedly two of the main reasons the Padres reached the playoffs for the first time since 2006. Lamet turned in a Cy Young-caliber season with a 2.09 ERA/2.48 FIP and 12.13 K/9 against 2.61 BB/9 in 69 innings. Clevinger, whom the Padres acquired from the Indians at the Aug.

San Diego Padres right-hander Dinelson Lamet departed his Wednesday start against the Milwaukee Brewers after two innings due to right forearm tightness. Padres manager Jayce Tingler said after his team’s 4-2 loss that Lamet would undergo an MRI exam. The 28-year-old Lamet , who finished fourth in National League Cy Young Award balloting last season, was making his season debut. He missed the 2020 postseason due to elbow issues and avoided surgery by rehabbing the arm during the offseason. Tingler said Lamet mentioned the tightness after the second inning Wednesday.

It doesn't look like San Diego Padres pitcher Dinelson Lamet will be returning to the bump soon, as the latest update from the team is the opposite of promising.

On Tuesday, the San Diego Padres got quite the scare when starting pitcher Dinelson Lamet left the contest early due to forearm tightness. You could tell he was in some discomfort, and the Padres of course are never going to risk things when it comes to his health.

The latest reports out of San Diego sure don't sound promising, as it's expected that the hard-throwing righty will be headed to the Injured List. When will he be able to return? Things feel completely up in the air right now.

Some well-deserved hype for the often overlooked small-market players

  Some well-deserved hype for the often overlooked small-market players Spoiler: Bryan Reynolds did not win the batting title last summer. Ah, but it’s a new year, a new day, and perhaps a new Reynolds — or, more like the Reynolds we fell for in 2019. Reynolds is off to a .308/.400/.462 start, with a couple of homers. He’s already walked nine times. Statcast data backs up the early Reynolds returns — his expected average is .313, his expected slugging is .560. Heck, if anything, Reynolds has been a little unlucky in the opening weeks. The Pirates have made Reynolds the centerpiece of their offense, an offense that’s been better than expected. You’ll find Reynolds slotted No. 3 most days.

San Diego Padres right-hander Dinelson Lamet departed Wednesday’s start against the Milwaukee Brewers after two innings due to forearm tightness. The 28-year-old Lamet , who finished fourth in National League Cy Young Award balloting last season, was making his first start of the season. He missed the 2020 postseason due to elbow issues and avoided surgery by rehabbing the arm during the offseason. Lamet threw 29 pitches, allowing one hit and one walk with four strikeouts, before exiting.

However, fellow starter Dinelson Lamet “likely won’ t be ready for this round,” Nightengale adds. Both pitchers missed the playoffs’ opening set, but San Diego leaned heavily on their bullpen to advance past the Cardinals in three games. Clevinger has generally seemed the more likely of the duo to work his way back to the mound this week. Lamet emerged as an NL Cy Young contender this year, pitching to a 2.09 ERA/2.48 FIP across 69 innings. Unfortunately, he exited his final start of the regular season with biceps tightness. The Padres have until tomorrow to formally set their NLDS roster.

Rough injury news has arrived for the San Diego Padres on Dinelson Lamet

Lamet was making his season debut on Tuesday, as he worked his tail off in the offseason to recover from a strained UCL in his right elbow. Because of that injury, Lamet was unable to take the bump for the Padres during the 2020 postseason run.

The hope was that he was more than ready to take the hill. He ended up lasting two innings, throwing 29 pitches and only giving up one run in his limited action. He was humming early on, throwing the ball with the kind of velocity Padres fans expected him to.

However, things quickly went south and now it's looking like Lamet is all set for a trip to the IL. The hope is that he won't have to miss an extended period of time, but San Diego of course will want to be smart with him and not get him back on the field until he's at 100 percent. Stay tuned to see when that will be.
