SP - SD
Dinelson Lamet improved to 2-0 on Sunday against the D'Backs, allowing one run over 6 1/3 innings pitched while striking out 11.
Lamet gave up just one hit on the afternoon, which wound up being a solo homer by Kole Calhoun. The 28-year-old was otherwise dominant and now owns a 1.61 ERA through four starts. There was some concern entering the year that Lamet was only a two-pitch pitcher. So far those concerns have seemed silly. Lamet will remain an elite must-start option in a rematch with Arizona next weekend.
Dinelson Lamet received a no-decision in Tuesday's start against the Dodgers as he gave up just one earned run for the third straight outing.
Lamet allowed two runs (one earned) on two hits and two walks in 5 2/3 innings in this one. He struck out just two. The 28-year-old continues to impress and did so again on Tuesday despite the tough matchup. He'll carry a 1.72 ERA into another start against the Dodgers next time out.
Dinelson Lamet continued to cruise on Thursday against the Giants, striking out seven while allowing just one run over five innings pitched.
Lamet allowed four hits and walked four. The 28-year-old has now pitched 10 innings through two starts, striking out 15 and allowing just two runs. The right-hander isn't the best bet to pitch deep into games but it's tough to argue with the approach right now. A tough matchup with the Dodgers is up next.
Dinelson Lamet picked up the win on Saturday against Arizona, striking out eight while allowing one run over five innings pitched.
Lamet allowed just five hits and one walk in the impressive outing. He has always great strikeout upside but has struggled to pitch deep into games. If he can be even slightly more efficient this season it'll pay off big time for fantasy owners who believed during the draft. He's must-start next time out against the Giants.
Padres' manager Jayce Tingler has penciled in Dinelson Lamet for San Diego's second game of the season on Saturday, according to AJ Cassavell.
Lamet is a popular sleep pick for 2020 after posting a solid 4.07 ERA in 2019 over 21 starts, racking up an impressive 105 strikeouts in just 73 innings after coming back from Tommy John surgery. He does have some control issues (career 4.0 BB/9) and many think he doesn't offer much variety in his pitch selection. He just turned 28 so the shortened 2020 campaign will be a crucial one as he seeks to establish himself as a top of the rotation starter in San Diego.
