Padres vs Marlins

Why did Lamet get pulled after just 4 innings?

His numbers looked alright. Is this AG overthinking again?

Actually he didn’t ... 4 innings yielding 6 hits / 2 BB and 85 pitches and was laboring with command. Not going to stretch out a pitcher too much when he has just been activated from the TJ time off.

Will Lamet have issues with his command throughout his recovery?

I noticed in his rehab starts he was having difficulty hitting his spots. Is accuracy an issue with most guys coming back from TJ? Something to do with muscle memory or arm slot?

Command is usually the last thing that comes back when rehabing from TJ surgery. It is probably a combination of arm slot and muscle memory. Listening to the broadcast today, the velocity seems to be there, so I would imagine that the command is on its way. It will probably be up and down performances for the balance of the season. And with a more normal off season for Lamet, next year should be much better. I would imagine that you will see the same for Richards in his comeback as well.

Thanks for the information Booster.

I guess I never really tracked anyone elses TJ return to notice.

Lamet should be a fixture near the top of our rotation well into the 20's.
