San Diego Padres
I wrote about Luis Perdomo before his last start, and spoke to how a fifth starter for a bad team is sometimes just a guy getting change as the result of minimal depth. Perdomo pitched his first season for the Padres last year and had a low K/9 and a high ERA.
His first appearance for the Padres last Friday echoed his rookie season, he struck out just three hitters in 5.1 innings and gave up five earned runs.
The Padres however must be excited about their early season performance, they’re 4-4 at the time of writing and have received good outings from both Clayton Richard and Trevor Cahill. In addition Wil Myers is on a tear, hitting .382 and has already hit three homeruns on the year.
They aren’t destined for the playoffs this year, but could show some promise if some of their current players show some promise.
Kyle Freeland is is a former top 10 pick for the Colorado Rockies and will make his second start as a major leaguer on Wednesday. He didn’t set the world on fire when in the minor leagues, but received a promotion anyways based on his natural talent and lack of pitching depth on the big league team.
Freeland received a promotion last year from AA after posting a 3.87 ERA and proceeded to have a 3.91 ERA in AAA. It was safe to keep expectations low for Freeland entering this year, but in his first MLB outing he pitched six innings, allowed just one run while also striking out six.
It will surely be a season of ups and downs for Freeland but he’s off to a promising start.

Free San Diego Padres vs. Colorado Rockies MLB Prediction:
Both teams figure to be at the bottom of the NL West this year, and it’s a show me year for a lot of their young players. Freeland is the more promising prospect, especially considering both guys’ first starts of the 2017 season. Rockies have the advantage in this matchup.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: UNDER 12
A game in Colorado with some questionable pitching matchups is the reason this number is so high, however I recommend the under for this game. Both offenses can be anemic at times and Freeland is still a talented pitcher.
