Padres’ GM A.J. Preller said that he doesn’t expect Dinelson Lamet (biceps/elbow) to require offseason surgery.
Lamet missed the postseason due to bicep tightness, but will not need surgery to correct the issue. He did begin PRP therapy on his right elbow last Monday. "It doesn't seem like either situation is surgical,” said Preller. “Both (Mike Clevinger) saw elbow specialists. Rest and recovery were recommended. Padres expect both fully available for Spring Training.”
Dinelson Lamet began platelet-rich plasma therapy on his right elbow Monday.
Lamet missed the playoffs due to biceps tightness. He is dealing with an elbow injury and there are “no ligament issues” to be concerned about. "The team initially referred to Lamet’s injury as biceps tightness, but there was concern about the elbow from the start," per Kevin Acee of the San Diego Tribune. "Symptoms of biceps and elbow injuries can manifest in similar ways." The 28-year-old will udnergo treatment in the offseason and is expected to be back by spring training. Lamet finished 2020 with a 2.09 ERA, 0.86 WHIP and 93 strikeouts over 69 innings.
Dinelson Lamet (biceps) did not make the Padres' NLDS roster.
As expected, Lamet will not pitch in the NLDS against the Dodgers due to a biceps injury. He could return to the playoffs if the Padres are able to advance past Los Angeles. Lamet needs additional time to recover and is currently day-to-day.
Dinelson Lamet (biceps) reportedly not expected to pitch in the NLDS against the Dodgers.
Lamet continues to nurse sore biceps and will unlikely pitch against the Dodgers in the NLDS. He played catch on Friday, but needs additional time to fully recover from his biceps injury. If the Padres advance past the Dodgers, Lamet could be available for the NLCS.
Dinelson Lamet (biceps) played catch on Friday.
Lamet exited his final regular season start due to biceps tendinitis and was left off the Padres' roster for the Wild Card Round. It sounds like there's a chance he could return for the NLDS if the Padres are able to beat the Cardinals on Friday night. Mike Clevinger (elbow) has a chance to return as well.
