While the Rockies sit 12 games back in their division, they still are just 4 games out of the second wildcard spot.
They lost stud SS Trevor Story earlier in the season, the rookie who set the record for most homers by an NL rookie shortstop tallying 27 before hitting the DL.
He hasn’t been completely ruled out for the year, and there’s talk if the team is close he may return at some point, which would provide a huge boost.
Tyler Chatwood is having a career year this season, registering a 3.75 ERA and a 10-8 record while pitching in the most difficult home-park in the league.
The 26-year old is now nearing his career high total in innings of 142.0, now sitting at 132.1, so he’ll be one to watch to see if the performance maintains this pace.
San Diego Padres
San Diego, amidst one of the biggest rebuilds in recent memory, definitely has some nice young future pieces to build around.
They’ve drafted top outfield prospects in Hunter Renfroe and Manuel Margot, and Travis Jankowski has had a strong start to his career.
They also managed to get top-pitching prospect, Anderson Espinoza, from Boston in the deal for Drew Pomeranz.
Luis Perdomo somehow owns a 7-7 record on the season, despite recording a 5.84 ERA and a 1.69 WHIP.
He is a vastly underwhelming starter, but is only 23 and considering the Padres have traded away their entire rotation, they don’t have much else to fill the gap and are seeing if there’s anything there for the future.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Across 2 starts vs Colorado this year, Perdomo has allowed 9 earned runs over 9.3 IP
- Colorado is 30-37 on the road this year.
- The Rockies are 6-4 over their past 10 games.
- San Diego is 4-6 in their past 10 games.
- The Padres went 10-17 in August.
Free Colorado Rockies vs. San Diego Padres MLB Prediction:
Colorado is hungry for any wins possible in their hunt for NL Wildcard spot #2, and should be able to take it to the Padres against a bad Perdomo.
