Philadelphia heads into San Diego on Friday as they begin a 3 game set with the Padres.
Both teams are in look toward next year mode, as they are well out of contention at this point.
The Phillies were at the center of many rumors around Friday starter Jeremy Hellickson.
However after many rumors, Phillies management decided it was best to keep Hellickson, as the right deal never came about. The decision was also to keep him to help this young staff learn and develop.
The Phillies will be seeing the Padres for the 2nd time this season, as they took 3 of 4 all the way back in April.
Hellickson has gone 2-0 in a 3 start unbeaten streak, as he comes in off a win over Atlanta last time out. Hellickson allowed just 3 runs in 5.2 innings of work before being pulled in a 9-5 victory.
He has had starts to forget when it comes to taking on San Diego, as he is 1-4 with a 7.18 ERA in seven starts against the Padres.
San Diego Padres
The Padres have been a team to go for it the past couple seasons when they added players like Matt Kemp, James Shields, and Justin Upton.
However, that plan has failed and shipping away Shields and Kemp prior to the deadline has put the Padres in a rebuilding phase once again.
San Diego comes into this one 3-3 on their current homestand after taking 2 of 3 against Milwaukee, but falling in 2 of 3 to Cincinnati.
The Padres will go with LH Christian Friedrich, who comes in off a solid start where he earned a no decision.
Friedrich tossed 6.0 innings of 1 run ball, which was a very encouraging sight to see.
Prior to that he was 0-4 with a 7.71 ERA in a 5 start span.
