2023 Fantasy Outlook
Knehr struggled in his first extended stint at the Triple-A level last season, posting a 6.88 ERA (5.67 FIP) and 1.65 WHIP over 87.2 innings. Both his 1.9 HR/9 and his 13.6% walk rate were higher than what he'd posted in previous seasons, though they were perhaps intertwined -- pitchers can understandably nibble too much when they're getting knocked around, especially in the offense-friendly Pacific Coast League. The right-hander was actually better in five big-league appearances, allowing a reasonable six runs and four walks over 13.1 frames. Knehr bounced between a starting and relief role in the minors and came out of the bullpen in four of his five games with San Diego, with his longest outing being a 4.2-inning relief appearance in his season debut. It's uncertain whether he'll develop a good enough third pitch to survive as a starter, and the Padres so far appear content to use him in a swingman and middle-relief role. Such pitchers serve an important purpose in MLB, but not so much in fantasy. Read Past Outlooks

September 10, 2022
Knehr was optioned to Triple-A El Paso on Saturday, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
ANALYSIS
Knehr joined the Padres' bullpen last week after active rosters expanded to 28 players, but he gave up four runs on four hits and two walks while striking out two in 1.2 innings during his lone appearance following his promotion. He'll head back to the minors since Pierce Johnson (elbow) is expected to be reinstated from the 60-day injured list Saturday.
