Both of these teams could use a fresh start next season, but the one in Arizona hasn’t torn down anything as of yet, whereas San Diego has done the complete opposite.
One would think that a lineup featuring Paul Goldschmidt and breakouts from Jean Segura and Jake Lamb would provide more than a 50-71 record.
The offense has, however, produced the 13th most runs in baseball this year, and this is without the services of stud OF AJ Pollock.
The pitching, on the other hand, has been dreadful even despite signing Zack Grienke to a mega-deal in the offseason. Robbie Ray will take the hill for the D-Backs in this showdown of the lower rung in the AL East.
Ray holds a 4.47 ERA and has been racking up the Ks, with 161 punch outs on the season.
San Diego Padres
Will Myers is an all-star and put together a great breakout season, with a .273 average, 23 homers, 71 RBI and 21 stolen bases.
He is one of the few remaining pieces left of the San Diego offense from the start of the year, and appears the be the guy to build around for the Friars.
Clayton Richard owns a career ERA of 4.34 ERA but thatis paired with a 1.41 WHIP.
On the year, he has a 5.75 ERA and dreadful 1.97 WHIP, and at age-32 you have to wonder how much longer of a leash he’ll have in the MLB, but is clearly a place holder during the rebuild for now.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- The D-Backs are 29-31 on the road
- Arizona is 5-5 in their past 10 games
- San Diego is 3-7 in their past 10 games
- The Padres are 28-30 at home
Free Arizona Diamondbacks vs San Diego Padres MLB Prediction:
Arizona may own a worse record than San Diego, but they are much closer to being an actual playoff threat and have some legitimate MLB stars on their team. Aside from Myers, San Diego cannot say the same.
