  • Padres' Steven Wilson: Seeing more eighth-inning work

    Wilson worked the eighth inning during Sunday's loss to Milwaukee, tossing a scoreless frame during which he allowed one walk and no hits.

    This was the second time in the past week that Wilson pitched the eighth inning of a close game -- in the other instance, he picked up a hold during a 4-2 win over the Mets. The right-hander's role isn't set in stone, as in his other two outings last week he pitched once in the seventh inning and another time in the fourth and fifth frames. It seems to be clear, however, that Wilson has earned the trust of manager Bob Melvin in tight late-game situations. That trust stems from a strong start to the campaign during which Wilson has posted a 0.84 ERA, 0.84 WHIP and 11.0 K/9 over nine appearances. He's walking a few too many batters (five through 10.2 innings), and Josh Hader isn't in any danger of losing his job as San Diego's closer, but Wilson could be a worthwhile pickup in fantasy leagues that count holds even when Robert Suarez (elbow) and Drew Pomeranz (elbow/neck) return to action.

  • Padres' Steven Wilson: Mixed results this spring

    Wilson finished the Cactus League slate with a 3.52 ERA, 1.57 WHIP and 6:4 K:BB over 7.2 innings.

    Wilson allowed a lot of baserunners across his seven outings, but only three of them crossed the plate. The righty reliever is coming off a strong rookie campaign during which he posted a 3.06 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 53:20 K:BB over 53 frames. Wilson could see some high-leverage work to begin the season with Robert Suarez (arm) and Drew Pomeranz (elbow) likely to begin the campaign on the injured list.

  • Padres' Steven Wilson: Tabbed to open Thursday

    Wilson will start Thursday's game against the Dodgers, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.

    Wilson has a 2.88 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 50:18 K:BB across 50 innings this year, and he'll make his first career start as the opener in Thursday's series finale. The rookie right-hander is unlikely to qualify for a potential victory and should give way to the bullpen after an inning or two.

  • Padres' Steven Wilson: Back with big club

    Wilson was recalled from Triple-A El Paso on Monday.

    Wilson was optioned to El Paso earlier this month, but he will rejoin the big club and take the place of Tanner Scott (finger), who landed on the injured list in the corresponding move.

  • Padres' Steven Wilson: Optioned to El Paso

    Wilson was optioned to Triple-A El Paso on Saturday.

    It's not every day you see a pitcher with a 3.57 ERA and 1.08 WHIP over 33 appearances sent packing. The Padres are getting Robert Suarez (knee) back from the injured list, and Wilson is a rookie with options. He should be back with the big-league team in short order.

  • Padres' Steven Wilson: Returns from injured list

    Wilson (hamstring) was activated from the 15-day injured list by the Padres on Friday.

    Wilson landed on the shelf with hamstring tendinitis in late June, and he'll rejoin the active roster after a one-game rehab stint with Triple-A El Paso. The rookie right-hander has recorded one save and five holds with a 3.62 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 29:9 K:BB across 27.1 innings this season.

  • Padres' Steven Wilson: Tosses bullpen session

    Wilson (hamstring) completed a bullpen session Friday, AJ Cassavell of reports.

    Wilson has been on the injured list since June 26 due to soreness in his hamstring and hip. The rookie reliever's absence isn't expected to be long term, and the fact that he was able to throw from a mound Friday suggests that he should be able to return shortly after the All-Star break. Wilson posted a 3.62 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 29:9 K:BB over 27.1 innings before going down with the injury.

  • Padres' Steven Wilson: Shelved with hamstring injury

    The Padres placed Wilson on the 15-day injured list Sunday with left hamstring tendinitis.

    San Diego brought up lefty Ray Kerr from Triple-A El Paso to replace Wilson in the bullpen. Before apparently picking up the injury during his one-out appearance in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Phillies, Wilson had compiled four wins, one save, five holds and a 3.62 ERA across 27.1 innings in relief this season.

  • Padres' Steven Wilson: Credited with win Saturday

    Wilson (4-1) earned the win over Colorado in Game 1 of a doubleheader Saturday with a perfect inning during which he struck out one batter.

    The low-scoring game went into extra frames, and Wilson was tasked with containing the Rockies in the top of the 10th. He started off the inning by striking out Connor Joe and retired all three batters he faced on only eight pitches. Wilson was credited with the win when San Diego scored in the bottom of the frame. The rookie right-hander has four victories, five holds and one save this season. He's posted a 3.97 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 22:7 K:B across 22.2 innings.

  • Padres' Steven Wilson: Summoned from minors

    The Padres recalled Wilson from Triple-A El Paso on Sunday.

    Wilson was added to the 26-man active roster as a replacement for Mike Clevinger (triceps), who was placed on the 15-day injured list. MacKenzie Gore is slated to start Sunday's game in San Francisco and will likely end up replacing Clevinger moving forward should the Padres elect to keep a five-man rotation intact, so Wilson will likely be relegated to a middle-relief role out of the bullpen while he's up with San Diego. In his 15 appearances with the big club earlier this season, Wilson collected three wins and five holds and posted a 4.20 ERA in 15 innings.

  • Padres' Steven Wilson: Optioned to Triple-A

    Wilson was optioned to Triple-A El Paso on Friday.

    Wilson saw some high-leverage opportunities during his time with the major-league club, and he was rewarded with three wins and five holds. However, he converted just one of his three save chances and will head to the minors after Tim Hill (shoulder) was reinstated from the injured list Friday. If Wilson performs well in El Paso, it wouldn't be surprising to see him rejoin the Padres at some point.

  • Padres' Steven Wilson: Secures fifth hold

    Wilson earned a hold against Atlanta on Friday by allowing no runs over two-thirds of an inning. He surrendered one hit and struck out one.

    When Wilson came on in the eighth inning, the Padres were up by only one run. The right-hander retired the first two batters he faced before allowing a single and subsequently being replaced by closer Taylor Rogers, who wrapped up the frame. Wilson's scoreless outing was his fourth straight after he gave up two runs April 30 against Pittsburgh. The right-hander has compiled a 2.51 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 17:5 K:BB across 14.1 innings on the season. He has racked up three wins, five holds and one save through 14 outings.

  • Padres' Steven Wilson: Notches first save

    Wilson saved Friday's 3-2 win against the Marlins, allowing one hit and one walk in the ninth inning.

    With Taylor Rogers unavailable, manager Bob Melvin turned to the rookie Wilson for the save and the 27-year-old delivered despite some traffic on the bases. He let the first two batters reach base in the ninth inning but proceeded to retire the next three to secure the victory. In 12 games, Wilson has recorded 15 strikeouts compared to five walks in 12 innings with a 3.00 ERA.

  • Padres' Steven Wilson: Hurls two stellar relief innings

    Wilson pitched two perfect innings against the Giants on Wednesday, striking out five of the six batters he faced.

    Sean Manaea was impressive in his six frames as a starter in the contest, and Wilson came on to relieve him in the seventh with San Francisco holding a one-run lead. Though the Padres were unable to muster a late-inning comeback, Wilson held the Giants at bay with two perfect frames during which he threw 21 of 26 pitches for strikes and fanned the final five batters to stand in against him. The impressive outing included nine swinging strikes and first-pitch strikes to five of the six hitters he faced. Wilson appears to be climbing up the bullpen pecking order thanks to a strong start to the campaign. Thus far he has racked up two wins, posted a 7:2 K:BB and allowed just one run over four innings.

  • Padres' Steven Wilson: Earns relief win

    Wilson (1-0) earned the win Saturday against the Diamondbacks after tossing a scoreless inning, fanning one and walking one.

    Wilson pitched the seventh inning and needed just 16 pitches to get the job done in his MLB debut. He posted a 3.43 ERA in the minors last season and is not expected to have a big role out of the bullpen, at least in the first few weeks of the season.

  • Padres' Steven Wilson: Makes roster

    The Padres will include Wilson as one of 15 pitchers on their Opening Day roster.

    Wilson will reach the big leagues for the first time after he joined the Padres' 40-man roster in November. The Padres elected to protect him from the Rule 5 draft following a 2021 campaign in which he compiled a 3.43 ERA and 0.92 WHIP across 39.1 innings. He'll likely be limited to a mop-up role out of the bullpen early on this season.

  • Padres' Steven Wilson: Added to 40-man roster

    Wilson was added to the Padres' 40-man roster Friday.

    The minor-league reliever logged a 3.43 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 63 strikeouts in 39.1 innings at Triple-A last season. He should make his big-league debut in 2022.
