Cory Luebke is still getting used to being a reliever, still a little jumpy whenever the bullpen phone rings, even if it's not for him. But the call came for him Wednesday night, and Luebke was ready.

At any point in the early season, I try to keep two main goals in mind: try not to over-react to a small-sample size result, but to try and find things inside of those small sample sizes that might be meaningful going forwards. So, for example, Juan Nicasio’s line tonight was great, but it’s not hugely important. He threw six innings, he struck out seven, he didn’t walk anyone...
A few hours before taking the field at PNC Park, the Pirates finalized their Opening Day roster by selecting the contracts of Matt Joyce, Cole Figueroa and Cory Luebke to round out their bench and bullpen.

There was a time when Cory Luebke seemed to be on the cusp of stardom. That was back in 2011, when he was still a member of the San Diego Padres. The following season, he pitched just 31 innings before falling down a rabbit hole of injury. He has re-emerged this spring, and today we received word that he made the Pirates’ Opening Day roster. That has to feel pretty spectacular...
With Opening Day hurtling towards us at an alarming speed, the Pirates have finalized their bullpen one day after giving Juan Nicasio the final rotation spot. The obvious spots are filled by the obvious pitchers (Melancon, Watson, Caminero), and with Jared Hughes on the disabled list, the final four spots will go to Neftali Feliz, Ryan Vogelsong, Cory Luebke, and Kyle Lobstein....

The Pirates signed Cory Luebke just before Spring Training began, intending to give the left-hander the chance he wanted to crack the Opening Day roster.
PITTSBURGH (AP) The Pittsburgh Pirates have signed former San Diego Padres pitcher Cory Luebke to a minor-league contract. The deal, announced Thursday, includes an invitation to spring training. The 30-year-old Luebke put together a 10-12 record in 55 appearances (25 starts) with the Padres from 2010-12. Luebke posted a 3.86 ERA in seven minor-league appearances in the San Diego...

There is no such thing as too much pitching. There is no such thing as too much pitching. That is a suggested saying for any Major League Baseball team heading into any offseason. Injuries can happen and bullpens can be unreliable. That is part of why you’ve seen reliever contracts skyrocketing and spring training invites already happening this winter. Here’s one more name you...
SAN DIEGO (AP) The San Diego Padres have declined to exercise their $7.5 million option on left-hander Cory Luebke, who has had two reconstructive elbow operations since 2012. Luebke receives a $1.75 million buyout. He was 10-12 with a 3.25 ERA from 2010-12

The San Diego Padres now sit at a 39-48 record entering their final series before the All-Star break, a season-worst nine games under .500 and losers of five in a row. According to Fangraphs.com, the Padres have less than a three percent chance of making the playoffs. What has been a huge disappointment for Padres fans has even been a larger one for the ownership group. “To say...
The San Diego Padres are 35-40 and now a season worst five games under .500. The club is 3-6 since Pat Murphy took over as the manager of the club. It is beginning to become clear the team the front office assembled last winter is not a playoff caliber team. The Padres are still 6.5 games back of the Dodgers and 6.0 games back of the second wild card spot, which still gives them...
SAN DIEGO (AP) The San Diego Padres have reinstated right-hander Casey Kelly, left-hander Cory Luebke, first baseman Yonder Alonso and left fielder Carlos Quentin from the 60-day disabled listed.

Jose Fernandez. Patrick Corbin. Jarrod Parker. A.J. Griffin. Luke Hochevar. Matt Moore. Brandon Beachy. Cory Luebke. Bruce Rondon. Bobby Parnell. Kris Medlen. Ivan Nova. And now Martin Perez. Top and mid-tier pitchers in the early stages of their professional careers who have had Tommy John surgery this season, or in the case of Perez, are […]
Or “How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Private Hotel Suite on Road Trips” Yesterday, Dustin of The Sacrifice Bunt gave you a little insight into the perceived value of Gyorko’s extension. He looked at recent contracts given to players with similar service time, Starling Marte and Andrelton Simmons. Of the three players, Jedd Gyorko fell in the middle of both projected...
If I ran the Padres…. I would stop buying out arbitration years for my young players. I admit my position on this issue has evolved in the past 3 seasons or so. In the past i felt locking up players with guaranteed money was a great investment because the team can set its price rather than risk huge increases that are out of their control. Sounds great in theory. But, as...
Often as fans of a team, we end up (consciously or not) viewing the financial side of baseball from the owners’ perspective. We worry about how much our favorite team – the Padres of San Diego in this case – spends on its players, not because it’s our money on the line or because we’re worried about our team’s owners’ upcoming yacht payments, but because we want our...
It’s been a depressing spring so far, at least with regards to pitcher injuries. Kris Medlen is going under the knife, and rotation mate Brandon Beachy will as well. Jarrod Parker will need elbow surgery also, and fellow staff member A.J. Griffin is being shut down with flexor tendinitis. Patrick Corbin will likely join Parker as an MRI revealed UCL damage. Jon Niese has been...
There has been a flurry of injuries to pitchers over the last week, and some of them have decided to or are close to getting the dreaded Tommy John Surgery that will keep them out for the entire 2014 season. This will have a significant impact on the playoff picture, especially given that Jarrod Parker, Kris Medlen, Brandon Beachy, Patrick Corbin and Cory Luebke all pitch for teams...
The bad luck continues for San Diego Padres pitchers. On Saturday, Joe Wieland made his first spring start and 4th spring appearance with the Padres. The results weren’t great – he allowed 5 runs over less than 3 innings. However, the aftermath of the start was worse. Following his start, Wieland experienced elbow pain, and, according to Jeff Passan, there is “Significant concern...
PEORIA, AZ - The San Diego Padres today announced that they have claimed outfielder Alex Castellanos off waivers from the Texas Rangers.

I am not a doctor. No, this isn’t the beginning of a bad Star Trek joke. I’m really not a doctor. At least not a medical doctor. Of love however? Well, probably not that either actually. But we’ve gotten off-topic. I am not a doctor so to speak from a medical standpoint is at best useless but in reality irresponsible. So I won’t. I’ll only tell you what’s happen this...
