  • Blake Snell Falls To 0-5

He started the game off strong, tossing four scores innings. Things unraveled for the southpaw during the fifth frame. The Phillies tagged three runs off Snell in the fifth and tacked on an additional run with an Alec Bohm RBI double in the sixth frame. Snell is winless on the season and was tagged with his fifth season loss. Overall, the 29-year-old owns a 5.60 ERA, 1.44 WHIP, and 38:19 K: BB across 35 1/3 innings. Snell will look to pick up his first win of the year Saturday on the road against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

  • Blake Snell Rounding Into Form

    San Diego Padres starting pitcher Blake Snell is rounding into form after missing all of April and part of May since returning from a groin injury. The 29-year-old allowed two earned runs across six innings while allowing two hits, three walks, and striking out six on Tuesday in St. Louis against the Cardinals. On the season, the former American League Cy Young winner is 0-2 with a 4.80 ERA, 1.07 WHIP, and 18 strikeouts across 15 innings. Snell is slated for a tough matchup with the New York Mets early next week but can be deployed with a bit more confidence following his latest outing.

  • Blake Snell Gets Roughed Up In Season Debut

    San Diego Padres starting pitcher Blake Snell made his season debut against the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday. Despite an ugly stat line, Snell had fairly good stuff during this contest. Although, he walked three batters, in which two of them scored. Snell also struck out five over his 3 2/3 innings of work. He finished the day with three earned runs and three hits allowed, including a home run to Rhys Hoskins. This probably wasn't the result fantasy managers were looking for out of Snell, but hopefully he'll pitch better against the Milwaukee Brewers during his next start.

  • Blake Snell Reinstated, Set To Start On Wednesday

    San Diego Padres starting pitcher Blake Snell (groin) has been reinstated from the 10-day injured list. He will make his season debut on Wednesday against the Philadelphia Phillies. Left-handed pitcher Ray Kerr was optioned to Triple-A in a corresponding move. Snell had an up-and-down first season with the Padres in 2021. He made 27 starts and went 7-6 with a 4.20 ERA and a 1.32 WHIP. He was suffering from groin soreness during the opening week of the year and was unable to make his first scheduled start, landing on the injured list instead. He made three rehab starts over the past few weeks and pitched to a 2.77 ERA and 0.85 WHIP over 13 innings while recording 19 strikeouts.

  • Latest On Padres' Rotation Plans

    The Padres have been without lefty Blake Snell all season due to an adductor strain, but the 2018 AL Cy Young winner is set to make his 2022 debut on Wednesday, acting manager Ryan Christenson told reporters yesterday (Twitter link via Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune). San Diego will roll out Mike Clevinger,…

  • Blake Snell To Make His Season Debut Wednesday

    San Diego Padres starting pitcher Blake Snell (groin) will make his season debut in Wednesday's game against the Philadelphia Phillies. The 29-year-old was unable to make his first start of the year during opening weekend due to groin soreness and he has been on the injured list ever since. Over the last few weeks, he made three rehab starts and the results have been solid overall as he posted a 2.77 ERA and 0.85 WHIP while striking out 19 batters over 13 innings. With Snell's return, rookie MacKenzie Gore's next start is going to be skipped so he can be rested. Mike Clevinger is being bumped up to Tuesday, when Gore was originally slated to start. The expectation is that Gore will pitch out of the bullpen this week and then make his next start later this month.

  • Blake Snell Looks Good In Latest Rehab Start

    San Diego Padres left-hander Blake Snell (groin) allowed just one run while walking none and striking out seven in five innings for Triple-A El Paso on Tuesday night in his third minor league rehab start. In his first two rehab starts with High-A Fort Wayne and Single-A Lake Elsinore, Snell allowed three earned runs on six hits while walking two and striking out 12 in eight innings pitched. There's a good chance that the next start the 29-year-old southpaw makes will be back with the Friars. Snell has been out since April 14 with an adductor strain, but his fantasy managers will be hoping he can make his season debut sometime next week. He can strike hitters out with the best of them, but his 12.6% walk rate in his first year in San Diego in 2021 was his undoing.

  • Blake Snell To Start At Triple-A On Tuesday

    San Diego Padres starting pitcher Blake Snell (groin) will be making his third rehab start at Triple-A El Paso on Tuesday. The 29-year-old made each of his first two rehab starts at Single-A, pitching a total of eight innings and allowing six hits, two walks and four runs (three earned) while striking out 12. The lefty has yet to make his 2022 debut for the Padres as he's been on the injured list since April 11 with a left adductor strain. If all goes well for him on Tuesday, he could be activated and rejoin the team's rotation. The Padres will have some choices to make once Snell is officially back with the team. The most likely outcome at this point may be a six-man rotation for the team.

  • Blake Snell Allows Four Runs In Second Rehab Start

    San Diego Padres left-hander Blake Snell (groin) wasn't quite as sharp in his second minor league rehab outing on Wednesday for Single-A Lake Elsinore, allowing four runs (three earned) on two walks and four hits. The 29-year-old threw 40 of his 66 pitches for strikes over his four innings of work and struck out eight, giving him a 12:3 K:BB over eight innings in his first two rehab games. He will report back to the Padres on Thursday before determining his next step as he attempts to rejoin San Diego's starting rotation. Snell has been out since April 11 with a left adductor strain, and he's likely to need at least one more minor league start before the Padres feel comfortable activating him from the injured list.

  • Blake Snell To Throw Live Batting Practice Saturday

    San Diego Padres starting pitcher Blake Snell (groin) is set to throw a live batting practice on Saturday. The 29-year-old, who is currently on the injured list due to left adductor tightness, previously through a bullpen session on Tuesday. Snell isn't expected to be out for too long, but the team hasn't given a specific timeline for his return. MacKenzie Gore, who took Snell's rotation spot, had another strong outing on Wednesday so it's hard to imagine the Padres would take the 23-year-old rookie out of the rotation. We'll likely see Nick Martinez move to a long relief role once Snell is ready.

  • Blake Snell Will Throw Side Session Tuesday

    San Diego Padres pitcher Blake Snell (groin) is in line to throw a bullpen session Tuesday. He was placed on the 10-day injured list with left adductor tightness. The 29-year-old will miss at least one more turn in the rotation and continues to be day-to-day. On Wednesday, San Diego's top prospect MacKenzie Gore is scheduled to start in Snell's place against the Cincinnati Reds. Gore allowed two runs on three hits and two walks while striking out three over 5 1/3 innings in his previous start against the Braves; the 23-year-old has a ton of upside and is a terrific streamer this week against the woeful Cincinnati Reds.

  • Blake Snell Placed On Injured List With Adductor Tightness

    The San Diego Padres have placed starting pitcher Blake Snell (adductor) on the 10-day injured list with left adductor tightness. The 29-year-old veteran was scratched from his first start of the year and he will now be out for at least another week and a half, potentially longer. The Padres are calling up the team's top pitching prospect, MacKenzie Gore, to take Snell's spot in the rotation. Gore will make his MLB debut on Friday. Snell struggled in his first year with the Padres last year, pitching to a 4.20 ERA and a 1.32 WHIP over 27 starts. However, he should remain rostered in all fantasy formats as his upside makes him well worthy of stashing in an IL spot.

  • Blake Snell Expected To Go On Injured List

    According to The Athletic's Dennis Lin, San Diego Padres starting pitcher Blake Snell (abductor) is expected to be placed on the injured list on Thursday. Per Lin, Padres manager Bob Melvin said the team believes Snell's injury to be mild. The 29-year-old was previously scratched from his first start of the season on Sunday. The 2018 American League Cy Young winner made 27 starts for San Diego last season, throwing 128.2 innings and pitching to a 4.20 ERA and a 3.82 FIP. Snell also registered 170 strikeouts while walking 69 batters.

  • Blake Snell May Not Land On IL

    San Diego Padres left-hander Blake Snell (groin) is planning to play catch on Tuesday and throw his scheduled bullpen session on Wednesday. Snell was initially expected to land on the injured list after getting scratched from his start last Sunday, but it appears that the team will now wait and see if he's feeling up to making his next start slated for Friday. Snell was reportedly moving well on the field before Monday's game. Fantasy gamers rostering Snell will want to monitor his status closely over the next few days to see whether they will have him at their disposal against the Atlanta Braves on Friday.

  • Blake Snell To Land On IL, Mackenzie Gore Could Pitch Friday

    San Diego Padres starting pitcher Blake Snell (groin) is probably headed to the injured list, but manager Bob Melvin said Snell's adductor injury isn't nearly as serious as the one that shut the left-hander down last September. The 29-year-old was scratched from his season debut on Sunday against the Arizona Diamondbacks with adductor tightness, and he'll miss at least the next 10 days, if not more. Snell was a disappointment in his first year in San Diego and also dealt with injuries, finishing 7-6 with a 4.20 ERA and 1.32 WHIP while posting a 30.9% strikeout rate and 12.6% walk rate in 128 2/3 innings over 27 starts. The strikeouts are nice, but his walk rate was the highest since his rookie season in 2016, and the injuries have become a real problem. MacKenzie Gore looked like he might've finally turned a corner this spring, and the left-hander should be picked up immediately in fantasy leagues if he's available.

  • Blake Snell Scratched With Adductor Tightness On Sunday

    San Diego Padres starting pitcher Blake Snell (groin) was a last-minute scratch from his start against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Sunday due to left adductor tightness. The team went on to send out Nabil Crismatt to start the game. Snell dealt with left adductor tightness late last season as well, so it's certainly concerning to see the issue come up again. There's no word yet as to how severe the injury is for Snell. He should be considered day-to-day at this point, but we expect to have more clarity on the situation soon. Make sure to stay tuned.
