Joe Musgrove News
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.
According to a tweet from The Athletic's Jim Bowden, the San Diego Padres have reportedly agreed to a five-year deal with starting pitcher Joe Musgrove worth $100 million. The reported extension will keep the right-hander in San Diego long-term. Musgrove has enjoyed a strong season with the Padres in 2022, pitching to a 2.65 ERA, a 3.27 FIP, 114 strikeouts, and 27 walks in 115.1 innings of work. He's also registered eight pitcher wins in 18 starts.
The San Diego Padres and right-hander Joe Musgrove are reportedly close to agreeing upon a five-year contract for about $100 million, according to Jon Heyman. The two sides have yet to officially close the deal but at this point, it appears that it will just be a matter of time. Musgrove is in the midst of a career year in San Diego, posting an 8-3 record, 2.63 ERA, 0.99 WHIP, and 106 strikeouts over 109 1/3 innings of work. Musgrove sticking around for the next five years is a big boost to the San Diego pitching staff as he was scheduled to become a free agent after the 2022 season.
San Diego Padres right-hander Joe Musgrove became another pitcher to leave the Pittsburgh Pirates and succeed for another franchise. He was traded from the Pirates to the Padres as part of a three-player deal during the 2021 off-season. The 29-year-old posted career-highs in ERA, strikeouts, and innings pitched last year. He owned an 11-9 record, 3.18 ERA, 1.08 WHIP, 3.65 FIP, 25.9 K%, and a 203:54 K: BB over 181 1/3 innings. Musgrove increased his exit velocity from 85.1 in 2020 to 87.9 while relying on his slider 27.7% and curveball 23.8% from his pitching arsenal. The right-hander can rack up strikeouts with a 27.1 K% and becomes a strong SP2 for fantasy managers in future 2022 fantasy drafts. Musgrove broke out in 2021 and will pitch for a new contract as the former Pirate is a free agent after the 2022 season. Steamer projections have Musgrove 182 innings pitch, 25.9K%, 7.0 BB%, 45.0 GB%, 3.62 ERA, and a 3.65 FIP. According to Rotoballer's Expected Draft Values, Musgrove is roughly fair value at his current NFBC ADP of 79.
