These are the bottom two teams in the NL West and there is not that much separating them at the moment.
The Diamondbacks have to be disappointed as their offseason moves were supposed to help them be a contender while San Diego was just hoping things would improve. San Diego can get out of the cellar with a series sweep over the weekend.
San Diego Padres
The Padres will be coming into this one looking to snap a four game losing streak.
It is the same old story for San Diego as the offense just isn’t up to snuff. They got swept by the Giants, only scoring a total of 5 runs over the three games.
This is the worst hitting team in the Majors with a team batting average of .221.
Christian Friedrich has escaped Coors Field and is trying to show that he can be an MLB calibre starter.
He has made just 2 starts this season and it is a little too early to tell just what the Padres might have.
The ERA is solid but the peripherals are a little scare, especially the almost one walk per inning. He has been lucky so far and that eventually that runs out.
The Diamondbacks are one of the biggest disappointments in the league and have to be concerned as we have past the quarter pole.
I think they were hoping to get a bump with the return of A.J. Pollack but now he is expected to miss the rest of the season.
However, the offense has not been the problem it is the pitching that has let them down. Odds are it can improve.
Robbie Ray is not lighting it up but he might be the only Diamondback who is not disappointing this season.
Though not dominating he has been very effective in his last two outings. I like the potential because he has the ability to miss bats.
He just has to watch his walks but against this lineup there should be no reason to nibble. He has been hit hard at home this season.

Free San Diego Padres vs. Arizona Diamondbacks MLB Prediction:
Neither of these teams is inspiring a lot of confidence these days but I think it is probably safer to go with the home squad. Arizona is definitely the better hitting team and Robbie Ray has proven to be effective enough.
I think this is a spot where you can take a go at the runline with the home team.
It is not that Arizona is so dominant but I don’t think you are going to get great value with the home side otherwise.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Arizona -1.5
I don’t do a lot of runline bets but I feel confident here. Friedrich should be pretty familiar to the Diamondbacks and I expect they will tee off on him. Chase is no Coors Field but it is definitely a hitters park.
