The D-Backs have to be loving their start. They are winning games and scoring runs and their best weapon still hasn’t gotten on track really. Paul Goldschmidt has more homers than steals but the offense is fifth in scoring.
San Diego might not the be place to expect a power surge from him or this club but they can put runs up on the board.
Arizona is still waiting to see the Greinke that used to pitch for the Dodgers. Speaking of which he was roughed up by LAD in his last start, his first roadie of the season.
San Diego is not as good a team but they can beat you with power if you let them. It is hard to know what to make of Greinke at this stage of his career.
San Diego Padres
San Diego is right where they are supposed to be. Everyone knew their pitching would be bad but I think most thought they would hit a little bit.
They are 8th in homers but 28th in runs so if it is not leaving the yard they are having a hard time stringing hits together. Only one regular is hitting over .270 – Wil Myers.
The simple fact is that Jhouklys Chacin probably shouldn’t be in the Majors right now.
I used to love backing him in his “prime” with Colorado but he is getting hit hard this season with no reason to expect a turnaround.
The only positive is that he was good in his lone home start this season against San Francisco, and this is a home game.

Free Arizona Diamondbacks vs. San Diego Padres MLB Prediction:
I am not going to read too much into that home result for Chacin. Greinke and the Diamondbacks has to be the play here.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: ARZ -1.5
I think the way to play it is on the run line here, I worry the standard moneyline might not provide enough payout. Greinke doesn’t have to dominate to get it done.
