San Diego Padres
It was a solid outing for Perdomo after giving up five runs in his first start as he was able to go five innings giving up one earned off of four hits while striking out four and walking three. For a heavy ground ball pitcher he has induced five ground ball outs compared to 11 fly ball outs.
Perdomo has been marked with some bad luck as even though he is only inducing ground balls at 37%, he currently owns a .407 BABIP. However it is good to see he has yet to give up a home run while he owns a 2.91 FIP.
Not too much has been going on with San Diego’s line slashing .237/.294/.373 to go with 19 extra-base hits and 21 RBI. As far as plate discipline goes they haven’t fared well ranking 23rd in walks with 31 while they rank fourth in strikeouts with 104.
Marquez was knocked around in his second start only making it 4.2 innings giving up seven earned off of seven hits, while he struck out two and walked six. Four of his seven hits went for extra bases.
His 10:6 BB/K ratio is a cause for concern as his control has been erratic considering he posted a BB/9 of 2.72 a season ago. Atlanta has been a hard team to work at the plate, but if his command continues to be an issue this could be a long season for him.
The production has been down for Colorado even though they have recently been playing at home slashing .211/.299/.341 to go with 17 extra-base hits and 24 RBI in the last week. They have done a good job taking free bases ranking eighth in walks with 42, but they’ve been striking out a lot ranking sixth in strikeouts with 101.

Free San Diego Padres vs. Colorado Rockies MLB Prediction: Marquez, Rockies handle
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Colorado -1.5
Marquez was doing fine as far as his command was concerned in the spring, so I expect him to finally turn it around against an undisciplined San Diego lineup. His high BABIP of .407 isn’t sustainable and I like his luck to change in his third start of the season.
Colorado owns an OPS of 1.019 in 85 at-bats against Perdomo.
