Padres' Dinelson Lamet: Will push up pitch count Thursday
Lamet is slated to throw a 70-pitch simulated game at the Padres' alternate training site Thursday, the Associated Press reports.Lamet has been working his way back toward a starter's workload and was at one point thought to be an option for San Diego's upcoming three-game series against the Dodgers. Instead, he'll get the chance to stretch out further in a sim game Thursday. If all goes well, the right-hander's return to game action could come as soon as next week.
Padres' Dinelson Lamet: Shaky in second spring start
Lamet (elbow) pitched 1.1 innings in a Cactus League contest against Colorado on Monday, allowing one run on two hits and one walk without registering a strikeout.Lamet pushed his pitch count up to 29 after throwing only 12 pitches in his first spring outing, but he allowed three baserunners and didn't pick up any punchouts. The right-hander will open the season on the injured list, but he should return to his spot in the Padres' rotation within the first few weeks of the campaign.
Padres' Dinelson Lamet: Logs first spring action Wednesday
Lamet tossed one inning against the Giants in a Cactus League game Wednesday, allowing one run on one hit.Lamet threw 12 pitches in the outing (seven strikes) and sat between 95-98 mph on his fastball, per Danny Vietti of CBS Sports. The right-hander was touched up for a home run by Donovan Solano but otherwise breezed through three batters. Lamet appears unlikely to be ready for a rotation role at the start of the campaign given his brief initial outing, but Wednesday's effort is a promising sign that he could make a major impact for the Padres -- and fantasy managers -- this season.
