SP - SD
Chris Paddack (elbow) has been shut down for the remainder of the 2021 season by the Padres.
A disappointing end to a rather disappointing season for both Paddack and the Padres. Paddack struggled mightily when healthy this season. He finishes his season with seven wins and seven losses, a 5.07 earned run average, and only 99 strikeouts in 108.1 innings pitched. With the Padres officially eliminated from postseason contention, both Paddack and the Padres will look to get themselves on the right track this offseason.
Padres pitcher Chris Paddack has been placed on the 10-day IL with inflammation in his right elbow. The move is retroactive to Sept. 12, meaning Paddack will be eligible to return on Sept. 22.
Paddack threw 4.2 innings on Saturday, but he didn't leave to the injury so this must've been something that popped up on Sunday after his start. He likely wasn't in any playoff fantasy lineups, but his loss certainly puts more of a weight on the Padres bullpen. It'll be interesting to see how San Diego handles Paddack's missed scheduled starts as they attempt to keep up in the competitive NL Wild Card race.
Chris Paddack went six innings on Sunday, allowing three earned runs on six hits. He didn't walk any batters but he also didn't record a strikeout.
The lack of strikeouts for Paddack is concerning and really limits his value on a daily basis in fantasy. He can't be started in fantasy unless managers are in dire need of a pitcher.
Chris Paddack went 4.2 innings on Monday, allowing one earned run on three hits and no walks. He also struck out five batters.
This was one of the better starts from Paddack this season, an encouraging sign for anybody who has held onto him in Dynasty. He still doesn't have value in redraft leagues though and remains a desperate play.
Padres RHP Chris Paddack (oblique) will return from the IL for Monday's start against the Diamondbacks.
Paddack has been frustrating this season and isn't worth using in fantasy leagues until he shows more consistency. The Padres are suddenly scrapping for a Wild Card spot down the stretch.
