(AP) — Dinelson Lamet’s breakout season with San Diego ended just short of the Padres’ first playoff appearance in 14 seasons.

That turned out to be a good thing.

The big right-hander thinks he narrowly avoided another Tommy John surgery by agreeing with team doctors to shut down his season. Lamet underwent platelet-rich plasma therapy in the offseason and has been able to bounce back.

Lamet says he feels like he's 100 percent.
