San Diego Padres
Tyson Ross is San Diego’s hardest starter to hit. He gives up just seven hits per nine innings and is the only one of the five starters with a WHIP under 1.20.
He gave up six hits in six innings in the first week of this month against Washington and also walked three. Five of those nine baserunners came around to score.
He’s thrown a dozen innings and given up just three runs since then in a win and a no-decision.
San Diego’s recent run of solid play has coincided with the call-up of Travis Jankowski. He’s made just 75 plate appearances but leads the team with seven stolen bases and has three home runs and three doubles, too. He’s hitting around .360.
Speaking of call-ups, Washington brought its top prospect to the big league club on Sunday in light of Howie Kendrick’s season-ending injury.
Juan Soto, a 19-year-old with two weeks of Double-A experience, homered on the first pitch he saw in his first big league start on Monday. He finished 2-for-4 with that homer, three RBIs and two runs scored in the 10–2 win.
Soto did strike out in a pinch-hit appearance but it was an exciting start for a guy the Nationals have high hopes for in the corner of the outfield, however ahead of his developmental curve the call-up happened to come.
After the doubleheader on Saturday, Washington is in a bit of a bind about who to throw on Wednesday. They have not yet announced a starter for that game, though it could be a spot starter.
