San Diego pitcher Mike Clevinger got a cortisone shot for his ailing right elbow Friday and the Padres are hopeful he'll be OK for the playoffs. And after Friday night's second game of a doubleheader split with the Giants in San Francisco, the team now has questions about the health of Dinelson Lamet, as well.

The right-hander gave them a scare when he reported biceps tightness and left in the fourth inning -- but, for now, Lamet will throw in a couple of days with expectations of pitching Wednesday at Petco Park in San Diego's first postseason berth in 14 years.

"Everybody is pretty optimistic right now,'' manager Jayce Tingler said.
