Stammen gave up one run while striking out three over three innings of relief Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

After a shaky start to the season, the 33-year-old appears to be settling in nicely as the Padres' long reliever. San Diego has experienced a lot of inconsistency in the rotation this season, so it wouldn't be unfathomable to see Stammen given a shot as a starter at some point this season. His current ratios of 4.37 ERA and 3.2 K/BB would put him in the conversation in deep and NL-only formats, but he needs to limit the long ball (2.1 HR/9) before the Padres realistically consider promoting him from the bullpen.

Stammen pitched his longest outing of the season Friday, giving up two runs and striking out seven over 3.1 innings against the Diamondbacks.

EDGE Analysis

Padres starter Jered Weaver was unable to escape the first inning of Friday's blowout loss, so Stammen and the rest of the San Diego bullpen had to close out a 10-1 drubbing at the hands of their division rivals. Outside of an increased strikeout rate (9.3 K/9), the 33-year-old hasn't had much success on the mound this season (5.79 ERA and 1.50 WHIP).

Stammen has given up eight runs over eight innings to start the 2017 season.

EDGE Analysis

Stammen's kryptonite so far has been the long ball, evidenced by his three home runs allowed so far. Forearm issues kept Stammen out of baseball all of last year and nearly the entirety of 2015. The Padres have lost every game the 33-year-old has appeared in, and all signs point toward the notion that he will continue occupy a middle-relief role for the team.

Stammen has made the Padres' Opening Day roster, Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

After missing most of the past two years recovering from a forearm injury, Stammen is finally healthy and ready to return to the majors. The 33-year-old dominated this spring, pitching to a 0.77 ERA with 12 strikeouts across 11.2 innings. With the Padres rotation already set, Stammen will head to the bullpen to start the season.

Stammen has thrown three scoreless innings with three strikeouts and no walks in three Cactus League appearances.

EDGE Analysis

Stammen was signed to a minor league deal after a shoulder injury derailed his career in 2015. The 33-year-old said that feels healthy for the first time in a while, and his early spring training success speaks truth to that. The Padres' bullpen is already set at the top, but there is opportunity for a veteran pitcher like Stammen to earn a middle relief role.

Stammen signed a minor league contract with the Padres on Saturday, SB Nation's Chris Cotillo reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran right-hander hasn't pitched in a game since tearing his flexor tendon early in the 2015 campaign. However, the Padres appear to be convinced that Stammen is healthy once again as they agreed to terms on a minor league deal with him. At this time, he's expected to report to the team's minor league spring training.

Stammen was sent down to Double-A Akron on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Stammen pitched in three games with Triple-A Columbus over the past two weeks, allowing two earned runs and four hits while striking out eight batters over three innings of work. The 32-year-old missed most of the 2015 season with a torn right flexor tendon and could potentially make it back to the big league time by the time the second half of the season starts July 15.

Stammen (forearm) has progressed to throwing off a mound at 75 percent intensity, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran reliever has been throwing 35-pitch bullpens of late, mixing in all of his pitches as he continues to build up strength in his forearm after sitting out for most of 2015 with a torn right flexor tendon. He'll likely continue to stick with bullpen sessions for the time being until he can increase his intensity and pitch count. Once he's able to ramp up to full strength, Stammen figures to begin facing live batters. Still, he appears to be on track for a return on the other side of the All-Star break.

Stammen (elbow) is expected to begin throwing live batting practice within the next two weeks, Paul Hoynes of Cleveland.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Stammen has been throwing off a mound since February 23, so it's good to see that the veteran pitcher is steadily progressing through his rehabilitation process. That being said, he's still likely t miss the beginning of the season.
