Mackenzie Gore still not on point in his outing tonight. Looked good in warmups and had a decent night but not enough consistent strikes. If you can't pump the zone here, then..uh...
The Athletic's @dennistlin discussed #Padres approach to Mackenzie Gore, why he could be up before June, why they need innings from Paddack & the offensive struggles at home vs. road
"The timing of this call-up is going to be as important as anything"
I’m not sure there is a better prospect pitching battle in all of @MiLB today than the one in Tacoma. Tacoma’s Logan Gilbert (MLB Pipeline Top 100 #28) vs El Paso’s MacKenzie Gore (#6). I will be on hand to watch and cover in person for @EVT_News! 7pm PDT https://t.co/LVjnNJEAlX https://t.co/R0ebMJ6kNW
Join @CoachKentera44 as he previews the battle for 1st place in the NL West between the Padres & Giants and MacKenzie Gore's AAA debut!

Chihuahuas - MacKenzie Gore
@jn_walkerjr @AshleyDavis32 I think the most obvious modern comparison for Hunter Greene is top prospect Mackenzie Gore, who was drafted one spot behind him. He avoided Tommy John surgery, but heads to AAA, rather than getting rushed to boost the Padres pitching staff.
For the prospect watchers, can confirm that we are currently scheduled for Tacoma's Logan Gilbert against El Paso's MacKenzie Gore on Friday night at Cheney Stadium. Get your tickets (or MiLB TV subscription) now!
Tonight on @KaplanandCrew Tonight - The Crew talks about the #Lakers huge win & how Marc Gasol compared himself to Mr. Wolf from Pulp Fiction which lead to story time for @ScottKaplan. Plus, is it time for the #Padres to bring up Mackenzie Gore? The crew is split on the topic. https://t.co/7ygclIR35e
Triple-A El Paso manager Edwin Rodriguez said MacKenzie Gore is "very close" to being ready for the majors. When he gets there, Rodriguez added, the Padres want him to stay there. "So we have to be very patient. ... We can't get too excited with (one) good outing."
Miguel Diaz takes the ball against the Pirates in about 15 minutes. The Padres needed to dig into their organizational depth to find a starter for tonight's game. So why not MacKenzie Gore?
"He’s been in a showcase environment for 18 months."
#Padres pitching prospect MacKenzie Gore set to pitch for @epchihuahuas this week, his first real-game action since 2019.
It could be the difference as he makes his final climb to San Diego.
. @JimBowdenGM of @TheAthleticMLB discussed Mackenzie Gore w/ @DSmithShow & why rushing a top prospect is worst mistake teams can make, challenge of developing players at alternate site & pitching issues facing Dodgers & Padres
When should we expect to see MacKenzie Gore? And his thoughts on the #Padres so far

As expected MacKenzie Gore, the Padres #1 prospect and #6 in all of baseball, will be starting the season in Triple-AAA with the El Paso Chihuahuas.
Catcher Luis Campusano, the Padres #3 prospect and #37 in baseball, will be joining him.
What a battery in El Paso. https://t.co/2YpZjzpARH
As expected, pitcher MacKenzie Gore is one of the top names on the @epchihuahuas opening day roster.
The 22-year-old is the Padres #1 prospect according to https://t.co/zzCIHSxbvc https://t.co/hgVDqjE3Dn
@keithlaw What's going on with MacKenzie Gore right now? Also, with all the starting pitcher injuries going on in San Diego, are there any under the radar arms you can see them calling up to fill the void for a handful of games?
@keithlaw Keith, can you provide any of us Padres fans an update on Mackenzie Gore? We feel like we’ve been in the dark in regards to his status, I’ve also heard reports of he’s struggling with some mental issues (“yips”), can you shed some light on him please?
@enosarris I have MacKenzie Gore stashed in my NA spot but the Padres are reluctant to bring him up and I hear rumors that he may have the yips. Is Jarren Duran a better use of that spot, especially with Renfroe and Franchy struggling so much?
Mackenzie Gore does not exist. He is simply a product of the Mandela effect. In an alternate universe he has already thrown 7 no hitters and 2 perfect games, but alas we are stuck in this one. @Padres #HungryForMore
Things I question:
Everything regarding El Flaco
Campusano’s catching skills
Padres plan with Kim
Tatis at shortstop...kinda
Pomeranz’s health https://t.co/ORPiJ8Kc3q
Padres SP depth at the start of 2021:
Since then, three of these guys have gotten hurt, another guy got added and likely got hurt, and one still isn't ready.
@RiehnP @Padres Hopefully Lamet can come back. If not Lamet, then maybe try out Mackenzie Gore He is the #1 ranked left handed pitcher in the minors. They also try Paddack in the bullpen. Maybe he can pitch better out of the bullpen with fewer innings and having less types of pitches.
I heard from a reliable source that #Padres left-hander MacKenzie Gore is suffering from "the Y's" (yips). It would explain San Diego's silence about their top pitching prospect over the past year. Certainly not something he can't overcome, but worth monitoring @PitcherList
@sam_scherer99 You've got to think about what the Padres would have to pay to get him. It probably involves of a package around Mackenzie Gore or Ryan Weathers, or maybe both even.
He certainly would cost the Dodgers Gonsolin and Ruiz plus more.
I could see him going to Boston, if anywhere.
The Padres will NEED to call up MacKenzie Gore at some point soon unless Lamet is 100% and ready to give 6+ innings consistently every 5 days.
Weathers has been fantastic, but had only 115 career IP coming I to this season. His high was 96 in 2019.
The Padres have lost Lamet, Clevinger, and Morejon, yet here’s former top-10 pick Ryan Weathers jumping in as the No. 5 starter and dominating the Dodgers.
And having MacKenzie Gore waiting in the wings isn’t too bad either.
I don't understand #Padres fans can say we shouldn't bring up Mackenzie Gore because he hasn't pitched enough in the minors, and then champion a younger, drafted a year later, Ryan Weathers being put in the rotation. I say, let the kids pitch.
This is probably the thing A.J. Preller is paying attention to the most right now.
It's also why Chris Paddack won't lose his rotation spot and why the Padres need MacKenzie Gore to be ready this year.
The math behind starter's innings: https://t.co/WEuumJmUI9
@bridgetbaseball Me either but it doesn't look good. If he does then that's 3 of our starters with TJ surgery. The Padres should just bring up Mackenzie Gore, he is supposedly the best left-handed pitching this prospect in baseball. Might as well give him a chance at this point.
Jake Cronenworth is the best player on the #Padres right now. And their 4 & 5 spots in the starting rotation are not good. Might as well bring up Mackenzie Gore if you’re going to put Weathers in the rotation.
It’s crazy how bad Chris Paddack has been lately, he looked like a future ACE in 2019.. At least the Padres have 4 other stud starters, and MacKenzie Gore waiting in the minors
Paddack needs to add another pitch, fastball is way too hittable at this point, and location too
According to sources within the @Padres organization, RHP Dinelson Lamet experienced a setback during this morning’s team warm-ups. Following this news, LHP prospect MacKenzie Gore is excepted to be recalled from the alternate site to start today’s game against the Brewers.
Padres excuses are finished. Guys need to live up to their expectations, they’re fun to watch, but that shouldn’t be good enough. If you can beat the Dodgers, then you failed. Time for all these “prospects” to start proving their worth. Where is Mackenzie Gore??
Obviously MacKenzie Gore is waiting in the wings and Weathers could move out of the ‘pen, but it’s a long season and I wonder where more innings can come from. Padres have been able to pull up guys who were in HA/AA previous year (Paddack, Lucchesi, Margevicius, Quantrill, Lamet)
#Padres could use another hitter. I’m not too stoked on seeing Profar start just about every game. Pham needs to hit the ball. Manny needs to be a star. Hosmer just keep raking. And call up Mackenzie Gore.
@RetOfTheMack619 @draftcheat Might have to throw MacKenzie Gore in there somewhere soon too! Padres rotation going to be insane next year.
Definitely not Paddack and anyone as the 1-2, that's for sure. 🤣

@Ant110974 @CardPurchaser Since you can go back a few years, you’ll probably find a couple of Tatis jr cards. I’ve been trying to find one to add to my PC. There are some other San Diego guys I’d be interested in too. CJ Abrams, Mackenzie Gore, Robert Hassell III, and Luis Almanzar.
a few predictions
- former padres go 23 for 61 with 9 homers against the padres this year
- mackenzie gore also forgets how to tie his shoes
- tatis starts dating a kardashian
- jayce awkwardly tells kevin acee that it's pronounced "tinj-lay"
With MacKenzie Gore, CJ Abrams and Robert Hassell III still developing, #Padres farm system still plenty fertile.
A look at @sdut's top-15 #Padres prospects.
"Once you set that bar high and higher, you start to change the culture."
How Yu Darvish, Mike Clevinger and Blake Snell will set the standard for Adrian Morejon, MacKenzie Gore and Ryan Weathers.
In much better better news, MacKenzie Gore did precisely what Padres wanted him to today. Save for one batter, he was around zone all day. Left after allowing bloop single with two outs in the fourth inning.
3.2 IP, 3H, 1 BB, 50 pitches.
Mackenzie Gore of the San Diego Padres is the most fun pitcher I’ve seen this year.
He’s the best left-handed pitching prospect in baseball, and his curveball is special. He has two no-hit innings against the Reds so far.
If Mackenzie Gore isn't ready this year, I'm still not going to be worried about him. But I will be a little worried about the Padres rotation. Paddack, Morejón, and Weathers are really going to have to step up.
Chris Paddack will take his regular turn in the rotation in a simulated game Tuesday while MacKenzie Gore pitches in the Padres’ Cactus League contest against the Cincinnati Reds. https://t.co/CvD6KRqbrc
Some important #FantasyBaseball notes in this @AJCassavell piece:
*Dinelson Lamet continues to progress but might not be ready for OD
*Adrian Morejon, not MacKenzie Gore, would take the spot
*Drew Pomeranz forearm tightness 🤦♀️ something to monitor
I also forgot to post this on Tuesday night. MacKenzie Gore had another terrific spring training outing for the Padres. He only allowed 1 hit and struck out 2 in 2 scoreless innings. He has only allowed 2 runs on 5 hits with 8 Ks in 6 innings so far this spring

@tonygwynnjr back tomorrow!
Padres' MacKenzie Gore still missing location regularly. Luckily the deception & pure stuff allow him to still be successful & get swing-and-misses. That won't last on the MLB level — it will only be exploited. With some refinement against upper MiLB level comp, he'll be ready.
It’s kinda nuts that the Padres have Yu Darvish, Blake Snell, Joe Musgrove, Dinelson Lamet and a hopefully rejuvenated Chris Paddack as their rotation, Mackenzie Gore waiting in the minors, *then* get to add Mike Clevinger to the mix after the season.
@Glbrodeur33 @middlebrooks Signing Bauer put them ahead but definitely not “well ahead”. Padres have Snell, Darvish, Lamet, Musgrove, and Paddack with the #1 pitching prospect in baseball MacKenzie Gore waiting in the wings and Clevinger returning in 2022.
