  • Joe Musgrove Hit Hard In Season Debut

    Headshot for Joe Musgrove

    San Diego Padres starting pitcher Joe Musgrove struggled in his first start of the season in Thursday's victory against the rival Los Angeles Dodgers. Musgrove only lasted 2 2/3 innings and allowed seven hits, five runs, two walks and two strikeouts. The 31-year-old only threw six innings this spring in the Cactus League and was hit hard over that time. Despite that limited action this spring, Musgrove remains a steady option for managers after coming off a 2023 campaign that saw him throw to the tune of a 3.05 ERA with 97 strikeouts in 97 1/3 innings. With an ADP of 96, Musgrove makes for a solid option at the top of managers rotations in 2024.

  • Offseason In Review: San Diego Padres

    Headshot for Pedro Avila

    It’s rare for the same team to be on opposite ends of blockbuster trades within one offseason. This Padres front office isn’t afraid to break convention. San Diego was the traditional “seller” in the winter’s biggest trade as they shed a lot of money. That didn’t stop them from dealing a trio of well-regarded prospects…

  • Joe Musgrove Chased From Spring Opener

    Headshot for Joe Musgrove

    San Diego Padres starting pitcher Joe Musgrove surrendered four earned runs during Thursday's Spring Training opener against the Los Angeles Dodgers. He struggled mightily in the role, surrendering a walk, single, and hit batter in the top of the first inning before allowing Teoscar Hernandez to drive in two runs with his double. After just four batters, Musgrave was pulled from the game, giving him a total of four earned runs, two hits, and zero outs in the contest. On a positive note, he has plenty of time to shake things off and get back on track before his next start.

  • No Lingering Health Concerns for Yu Darvish, Joe Musgrove

    Headshot for Yu Darvish

    San Diego Padres starting pitchers Yu Darvish (elbow) and Joe Musgrove (shoulder) have no lingering health concerns, according to manager Mike Shildt. The new Padres skipper shared the news with reporters on Sunday as pitchers and catchers are reporting for spring training. This is good news, as both Darvish and Musgrove dealt with season-ending injuries last season. Darvish was placed on the 15-day injured list in August with elbow inflammation caused by a bone spur. The injury ended up cutting his season short, and he finished the campaign with a disappointing 8-10 record, 4.56 ERA, 1.30 WHIP, and 141:43 K/BB over 136 1/3 innings (24 starts). Musgrove, who started the season late due to a toe injury, was shut down in early August due to shoulder-capsule inflammation in his right arm. Musgrove was effective when healthy, however, finishing with a 10-3 record, 3.05 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, and 97:21 K/BB over 97 1/3 innings (17 starts). Both pitchers will be key to the Padres' success in 2024, as they'll likely lose free agent and reigning NL Cy Young award winner Blake Snell, and Seth Lugo and Michael Wacha already signed with the Royals during the offseason.

  • No Limitations For Joe Musgrove, Yu Darvish

    Headshot for Yu Darvish

    San Diego Padres manager Mike Shildt said that right-handers Joe Musgrove (shoulder) and Yu Darvish (elbow) are "ramping up full-gear, ready to go, no limitations" heading into spring training in several weeks. "They mixed in a few hitters recently. They're recovering well, so they're ready, healthy." Musgrove made only 17 starts in 2023 after being shut down in early August due to inflammation in his right shoulder. The 31-year-old was statistically solid, as he was in his first two years with the Padres, before his injury and should be a solid No. 3 fantasy starter as long as he looks healthy in spring training. Darvish, 37, is much more of a risk after he was shut down late in August due to a bone spur in his elbow. In addition to his injury, Darvish's dominance has slowly been fading in recent seasons.
