SP,RP - SD - IL60
The Padres placed LHP Matt Strahm (knee) on the 10-day injured list.
Strahm underwent knee surgery in October and it's unclear when he'll be ready to join San Diego bullpen.
Padres southpaw Matt Strahm (knee) is unlikely to be ready for Opening Day.
Strahm underwent right patellar tendon knee surgery and won't throw a bullpen until next week at the earliest. The lefty was highly effective out of the bullpen for San Diego last season, so the Padres will likely take their time to make sure he's right.
The Padres and LHP Matt Strahm avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $2.05 million contract.
This was Strahm's second time being eligible for arbitration. The lefty recently underwent knee surgery but he's expected to be ready for spring training.
Matt Strahm will have surgery next week to repair the patellar tendon in his right knee. He is expected to be ready for spring training in 2021.
Strahm dealt with knee inflammation most of the season; it landed him on the IL for a few weeks in September. He had patellar tendon surgery on his other knee back in 2017, per beat writer Kevin Acee. He should be ready to go for 2021 and will likely remain in his long relief role for the Padres.
Matt Strahm, who's been on the IL since September 11th with knee inflammation, was activated from the injured list. Joey Lucchesi was optioned to the team's alternate site in a corresponding move.
Strahm is ready to rock for the Padres as they they head towards the postseason. He's been stellar out of the pen this season with a 2.84 ERA, 0.84 WHIP, and a 14:3 K/BB ratio over 19 innings this year.
