Joe Musgrove News
San Diego Padres pitcher Joe Musgrove will reportedly start the third game of the National League Championship Series, per a tweet from The Philadelphia Inquirer's Scott Lauber on Wednesday. Lauber tweeted, "Joe Musgrove will start Game 3 for the Padres, manager Bob Melvin announced." Musgrove posted a 2.93 ERA and a 3.59 FIP in 181 innings during the regular season, striking out 184 batters compared to surrendering just 42 walks. He's made two starts so far this postseason, scattering seven hits, four walks, and a pair of earned runs in 13 innings while striking out 13 batters. The veteran made one start against the Phillies during the regular season, giving up seven hits, six earned runs, two walks, a home run, and a walk in six innings while striking out just one batter.
San Diego Padres starting pitcher Joe Musgrove threw six shutout innings in his most recent outing on Monday against the San Francisco Giants. The veteran also allowed a pair of hits and a pair of walks while striking out seven. He needed just 86 pitches to get through the six innings and finished the day with a 38% CSW rate and 11 swinging strikes. Four of Musgrove's 11 swinging strikes came via his slider. For the season, the 29-year-old now owns a 2.93 ERA, a 3.59 FIP, and 184 strikeouts in 181 innings. He's also walked just 42 batters.
San Diego Padres starting pitcher Joe Musgrove was excellent on Saturday, tossing six-shutout frames in his club's 2-0 win over the Diamondbacks. The right-hander gave up just four hits without walking a batter and striking out eight in the 95-pitch effort as he took his record to 10-7 on the season. After giving up four runs in each of his previous two outings, it was a solid bounce back game for Musgrove who has struggled to live up to his spectacular first half of the season of late. He still owns a 3.16 ERA and 1.07 WHIP through 165 IP as he looks ahead to his next scheduled matchup versus the Rockies next weekend in Colorado.
San Diego Padres right-hander Joe Musgrove has long been viewed as a potential star after being taken with the 46th overall pick of the 2011 draft. Twelve years later, that notion has come to fruition as a potential fantasy stud in 2023. After making just eight starts in the shortened 2020 season, Musgrove's career took off following a trade from the Pittsburgh Pirates to the San Diego Padres. Over two seasons with the Friars, the right-hander owns a 3.10 ERA, 19.6% K-BB%, and has won 21 games, all of which rank within the top 20 among qualified starting pitchers in that time. His performance has been excellent, but so has his ability to take the ball every fifth day. Musgrove ranks 16th in innings pitched and 18th in starts as a Padre. Steamer projections for 2023 aren't as kind as he's pegged for a decline in ERA (3.78), K% (24.9%), and K-BB% (19.2%), albeit with a 13-win season across 32 starts as a potent Padres offense will back him. Entering his age-30 campaign, Musgrove is being snatched around 86th overall in 12-team standard leagues. He's our 21st-ranked starting pitcher, right in line with his work over the last two seasons, thus solidifying his ADP for 2023.
