After firing five innings of one-run ball on Tuesday against the Milwaukee Brewers, San Diego Padres starter Chris Paddacks season is done. Paddack will be shut down for the rest of 2019 after fanning nine brewers and issuing just one hit and a walk. The 23-year-old finishes his rookie campaign with a 9-7 record, 3.33 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 9.8 K/9 across 140 2/3 frames (26 starts). Despite a brief August swoon, Paddack enjoyed a brilliant season, exceeding both performance and endurance concerns after undergoing Tommy John surgery in 2017. With an excellent 4.9 strikeout-to-walk ratio, Paddack is slated to headline an exciting Friars rotation in 2020 and will be in the SP2 conversation during fantasy drafts.
San Diego Padres starter Chris Paddack pitched six frames of shutout ball to gather his ninth victory on Wednesday against the Chicago Cubs. Paddack fanned seven, surrendering just three hits and a walk. The 23-year-old endured a brief swoon in early-August, but has bounced back impressively, yielding a single earned run over his past three starts. For the year he holds a strong 3.38 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 9.6 K/9. Expected to be shut down by September, the Friars have managed the rookies innings by stretching out his rest days. At 135 2/3 innings, hes way over the 90 frames he completed last year returning from Tommy John surgery. While insiders believe Paddacks season could be over, queue him up if he makes another start next week.
San Diego Padres starter Chris Paddack fired seven innings of one-run ball in Thursdays victory against the San Francisco Giants. Paddack has been abysmal since the All Star break but showed his early season-dominance in this one, fanning eight while allowing five knocks and zero walks. The 23-year-old lowers his rookie season line to a 3.69 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 9.3 K/9 in 124 1/3 frames (23 starts). He holds a fantastic 4.8 strikeout-to-walk ratio. The short-term risk for fantasy owners remains a probable innings cap but the Padres appear content to space out his starts rather than shutting him down completely. With his swag back, Paddack will face either the Arizona Diamondbacks or Colorado Rockies next week.
