This was so obvious that I can't believe they didn't do it sooner.  If he can only go 2 or 3 innings, then why start him?  Better to start with an opener and give him a shot at a win.  Or better yet, use him in the highest-leverage situation.

re: Will the Pads continue this?  Why not?  IMO, they don't know ... they are adjusting and adjusting and adjusting ... their situation continues to be in flux ... and so far, so good ... it does appear that they have a focus ... on their goal ... of peaking for the post-season (without overlooking the regular season) ... they seem to be adjusting and balancing well so far ...

I'd say that most Padres fans don't expect Lamet to be/stay healthy ... just seems like a long shot ...

Used like Hader yesterday and got the win.  Will the Pads continue this? As an "opener"  for 2-3 innings he is useless. As a Hader, very valuable.

Threw a bullpen tonight.

Occam's razor tells me that since 2018 TJ surgery, his slider has been devastating, both as a pitch and to his elbow.

He's back!

Oops ... after 2 IP ... “right forearm tightness” :-(

Word on the street, and at FanGraphs' Roster Resource, is that Lamet will start on Wednesday, 4/21 vs Brewers!

Dinelson Lamet (P) SD - Apr. 12

https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=770316

Lamet (elbow) won't return until he pitches at least once more at the Padres' alternate training site, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Lamet built up to 56 pitches during a game at the alternate training site Friday, but the team isn't rushing him back to the mound. Since the right-hander likely won't be ready to make his season debut at home against the Dodgers on Friday, the Padres will need someone else to fill in after Adrian Morejon (forearm) was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday. Craig Stammen, Nabil Crismatt or Ryan Weathers could be options to start Friday's matchup if Lamet is unavailable.

A commenter at madfriars.com sez ...

Listening to T.Gwynn Jr and he suggested that the return of Lamet may drift into May (maybe mid-May)
