  • Twins' Chris Paddack: Placed on 60-day IL

    Paddack was placed on the 60-day injured list by the Twins on Thursday as he continues his recovery from Tommy John surgery, Do-Hyoung Park of reports. The team needed to free up a spot on the 40-man roster for the Donovan Solano signing. Paddack is about nine months removed from what was his second Tommy John surgery and just recently began a throwing program. He's hoping to make it back sometime late this season.

  • Twins' Chris Paddack: Eyeing late-season return

    Paddack (elbow) said Wednesday that he began a throwing program last week and has progressed to throwing off flat ground from 60 feet, Do-Hyoung Park of reports. Paddack may be able to get back on the mound and/or face hitters by the end of spring training, but he acknowledged that he likely won't be ready to make his 2023 debut until August or September while he recovers from the Tommy John surgery he underwent last May. Because it was the second Tommy John surgery of his career, Paddack may face an uphill battle to return anywhere close to the level of success he enjoyed as a rookie with the Padres in 2019. Given that they signed Paddack to a three-year, $12.53 million contract extension in January, the Twins must at least be encouraged by how he's responded thus far from surgery.

  • Twins' Chris Paddack: Signs three-year extension

    Paddack (elbow) signed a three-year extension with the Twins on Wednesday. Paddack made five starts with the Twins last season and forged a 4.03 ERA before undergoing Tommy John surgery on his right elbow in May. The right-handed hurler is expected to miss the majority -- if not all -- of the 2023 season while recovering from the operation, but he should have a good chance of carving out a role in Minnesota's rotation beginning in 2024.

  • Twins' Chris Paddack: Inks one-year deal

    Paddack (elbow) and the Twins agreed on a one-year, $2.4 million contract Friday to avoid arbitration, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports. The right-hander underwent the second Tommy John surgery of his career in May and isn't expected to be available for at least the first half of the 2023 campaign. Prior to injuring his elbow, Paddack produced a 4.03 ERA and 1.21 WHIP with 20 punchouts over 22.1 innings in five starts with Minnesota.

  • Twins' Chris Paddack: Undergoes second Tommy John surgery

    Paddack (elbow) underwent Tommy John surgery Wednesday, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. The 25-year-old was already facing an extended absence after being placed on the 60-day injured list with elbow inflammation last week, and he's now undergone Tommy John surgery for the second time in his career. Paddack will miss the rest of the season and will also be sidelined for at least the first half of the 2023 campaign.

  • Twins' Chris Paddack: Moves to 60-day IL

    Paddack (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Thursday, Do-Hyoung Park of reports. While the Twins haven't yet revealed whether Paddack will require elbow surgery, he'll be unable to return to game action until at least mid-July. The right-hander posted a 4.03 ERA and 1.21 WHIP in 22.1 innings over his first five starts with the Twins but will be forced to miss significant time. Chris Archer and Josh Winder have been filling in as starters recently as the Twins' rotation deals with several injuries.

  • Twins' Chris Paddack: Placed on injured list

    Paddack (elbow) was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday. The move was an expected one after it was announced earlier in the day that Paddack was seeking a second opinion on his elbow and could require surgery. The decision on his treatment plan has not yet been made, but he'll miss at least one turn in the rotation and likely several more. Jharel Cotton was recalled to take Paddack's place on the roster.

  • Twins' Chris Paddack: May need elbow surgery

    Paddack is getting a second opinion on his inflamed right elbow, with surgery potentially on the table, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports. Paddack has been a serviceable starter for the Twins this season, posting a 4.03 ERA through five starts and a 1.69 FIP that suggested things could have been much better. Unfortunately, it looks like things might instead get much worse. He's yet to be placed on the injured list or even officially ruled out for his next start, but the fact that surgery is being considered suggests that a long absence could be coming. If Tommy John surgery winds up being the required procedure, Paddack would miss all of this season as well as the majority of the next, though even a lesser elbow surgery could still wipe out a large portion of this season.

  • Twins' Chris Paddack: Exits with inflamed elbow

    Paddack's early exit from his start in Sunday's game against the Athletics was due to right elbow inflammation, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Paddack recorded four strikeouts and was charged with three runs on five hits and no walks before he departed with one out in the third inning. The diagnosis of inflammation rather than tightness or a strain bodes well for Paddack's chances of avoiding an extended absence, though the injury could still be significant enough to force him to the IL. The Twins should have a better idea regarding the severity of his elbow issue after evaluating him in the next day or two.

  • Twins' Chris Paddack: Day ends early with apparent injury

    The Twins removed Paddack from his start Sunday against the Athletics due to an apparent injury. He struck out four over 2.1 innings and allowed one run on five hits and left two runners on base before exiting. Expect Minnesota to provide an update on Paddack's health later in the day after he was pulled from the contest following a visit to the mound from a team trainer. If Paddack is forced to miss time due to an injury, the Twins could condense from a six-man to five-man rotation rather than finding a replacement for him in the rotation.

  • Twins' Chris Paddack: Picks up first win

    Paddack (1-2) allowed one run on four hits and a walk over 5.1 innings Monday, striking out three and earning a win against Baltimore. Paddack yielded a pair of singles through four shutout frames before the Orioles got on the board with Ramon Urias' RBI sacrifice fly in the fifth. It was the third consecutive start in which he went at least five innings while allowing two or fewer runs. The 26-year-old is now sporting a 3.15 ERA and a 16:2 K:BB through 20 innings. Paddack is lined up to face Oakland at home this weekend.

  • Twins' Chris Paddack: Just short of quality start

    Paddack pitched 5.2 innings, surrendering one run on five hits and a walk while striking out six in Tuesday's victory over the Tigers. He did not factor into the game's decision. Paddack had his best outing of the season Tuesday, with his only blemish coming on a two-out double by Javier Baez in the bottom of the sixth inning, scoring Derek Hill and ending the starter's day on the mound. His six strikeouts were a season high and had the bullpen not blown it, he would have picked up his first win of the campaign. The right-hander's season numbers now sit at a 3.68 ERA and 1.16 WHIP over 14.2 innings.

  • Twins' Chris Paddack: Sharp in no-decision

    Paddack gave up two runs on five hits with four strikeouts and no walks over five innings in Wednesday's 2-0 loss to Kansas City. Paddack improved in his second start with the Twins and put the team in a position to win but got no run support. He lasted just four innings in his first start and allowed three runs, but he has an impressive 7:0 K:BB ratio in 9 IP this season. He should remain in the rotation as long as he's pitching well and Sonny Gray (hamstring) remains on the IL.

  • Twins' Chris Paddack: Loses first start with Twins

    Paddack (0-1) allowed three earned runs on six hits and no walks while striking out three across four innings to take the loss Wednesday against the Dodgers. Paddack allowed all of his runs in the first two innings of the game, though he settled in to retire six of the final seven batters he faced. While Paddack took the loss in his first start with the Twins, he did not allow a home run or a walk, the former particularly noteworthy given he entered the game having surrendered a 1.5 HR/9 across 308 career big-league innings. The Twins are employing a six-man rotation to begin the season, so his starts will be limited. Paddack currently projects to take the mound Wednesday at Kansas City.

  • Twins' Chris Paddack: Part of six-man rotation

    President of baseball operations Derek Falvey said Thursday that Paddack will be one of six starters the Twins will use in the first turn through the rotation to begin the season, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Before he was dealt to Minnesota on Thursday, Paddack appeared to be on the outs for a spot in a crowded San Diego rotation, but the right-hander looks like he'll make at least one start for his new team. Falvey said that after all six starters have had a start, the Twins will re-evaluate the rotation ahead of the second turn. While Falvey's comments perhaps hint that the Twins could eventually revert to a five-man rotation, Paddack should have a starting role so long as he's pitching well. It can't be taken as a certainty that he'll be able to do that, given that he's turned in a 4.95 ERA over 167.1 innings between the past two seasons.

  • Padres' Chris Paddack: Gets contract for 2022

    Paddack and the Padres agreed Tuesday on a one-year deal to avoid arbitration. Though Paddack is officially on the books for 2022, his role heading into the season is in question. After turning in a 3.33 ERA and 0.98 WHIP over 140.2 innings as a rookie in 2019, Paddack's performance has dropped off considerably the past two years, with his lack of reliable offerings beyond his fastball and changeup largely contributing to his demise. While he once seemed like a long-term linchpin in the rotation, Paddack may find himself without a starting role to begin the season with Mike Clevinger (elbow) returning from Tommy John surgery and with the Padres adding Nick Martinez on a four-year, $25.5 million deal in free agency. Paddack's shallow repertoire would likely present fewer issues for him as a reliever and could even make him a valuable multi-inning weapon out of the bullpen, though the lack of a full-time starting role would make him less useful for fantasy purposes.

  • Padres' Chris Paddack: Starting Sunday's contest

    Paddack (elbow) will start Sunday's spring game against the Brewers. Paddack was shut down in September due to a slight UCL sprain in his right elbow, but it appears he's now healthy and is competing for a spot in the starting rotation. The 26-year-old struggled with a 5.07 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 99:22 K:BB across 108.1 innings during 2021.

  • Padres' Chris Paddack: Tossing bullpen sessions

    Paddack (elbow) has been throwing bullpen sessions and is expected to compete for a spot in the Padres' starting rotation this season, AJ Cassavell of reports. Paddack was shut down in September of last season due to a slight UCL sprain in his right elbow, and he consequently started his offseason throwing program later than normally planned. However, he is said to be ready for game action and has already been tossing bullpen sessions in camp. San Diego's top four starters appear to be set in stone, so Paddack will likely compete with Nick Martinez, among others, for the final spot in the rotation.

  • Padres' Chris Paddack: Gets elbow injection

    Paddack received an injection in his right elbow earlier this week and is expected to make a full recovery from a slight UCL sprain in 6-to-8 weeks, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Paddack had his elbow checked out by Dr. Keith Meister, who previously oversaw the right-hander's Tommy John surgery in 2016. Fortunately for Paddack, he was recommended to treat the elbow injury through non-surgical means this time around, setting him up for what should be a relatively normal offseason. Before being shut down for good Sept. 13, Paddack turned in a 5.08 ERA across 108.1 innings.

  • Padres' Chris Paddack: Won't return in 2021

    Paddack (elbow) has been ruled out from returning to pitch this season, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports. Paddack has recently been throwing, but he isn't going to see the mound in a big-league game for the remainder of the campaign. It's unclear if he has suffered a setback, as the Padres' recent elimination from the postseason offers a logical reason to hold the right-hander out of action even if he's physically able to make a late-season appearance. Paddack finishes the campaign with a disappointing 5.07 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 99:22 K:BB across 108.1 innings.
