Even though the Padres had a much-improved squad in 2020, Paddack did not perform as well. He started 12 games and had a 4-5 overall record with an ERA of 4.73.
Mike Clevinger and Dinelson Lamet, the two pitchers ahead of him on the depth chart, both sustained injuries in the Padres’ first postseason game in more than a decade.
In Game 1 of the Wild Card Series, he gave up six runs in 2 1/3 innings and was charged with the 7-4 defeat to the St. Louis Cardinals.
Despite his poor performance, the Cardinals made it to the Division Series, but he was unable to pitch because the San Diego Padres were swept by the Los Angeles Dodgers in three games.
In 2021, he went 7-7, 5.07 in 23 games, inclduding 22 starts. His inconsistency was evident in his 108 1/3 innings of work, with a 99/22 K/W ratio.
After returning from Tommy John surgery in 2022, the Padres had a glut of starting pitchers, including Yu Darvish, Blake Snell, Joe Musgrove, and Sean Manaea, who joined a rotation that already had Yu Darvish, Blake Snell, and Joe Musgrove.
When spring training began, Chris was an outcast and the subject of trade speculations from the get-go.
On April 7th, just before the start of the season, he was traded to the Minnesota Twins along with Emilio Pagan and Taylor Rogers in exchange for a pitcher and an outfielder.
