San Francisco Giants
Matt Cain is an unfortunate story, both for himself and for the Giants. From 2009 – 2012 Cain was one of the best pitchers in baseball that made three All Star appearances and pitched a perfect game during that time.
After 2012 he’s had difficulty staying on the field, with both hamstring injuries and elbow injuries and as a result of his injuries his performance has suffered as well.
Cain pitched only 89.1 innings last year and came into camp this year competing for a starting role. He succeeded, eventually earning the fifth rotation spot on a team that will be vying for the playoffs.
The benefit is that he’ll have low expectations, on a team with two high quality pitchers, Cain can ease into the season. Hopefully he’ll be a great comeback story.
San Diego Padres
Last year was the first big league season for Luis Perdomo and this year he earned the fifth starting spot in a rotation that is expected to struggle this season.
Perdomo did pitch 146.2 innings last year, but to the tune of a 5.71 ERA and a K/9 rate of 6.44 that is in the bottom ten of the league.
Opportunity can breed greatness however and Perdomo will certainly get a long leash. The Padres are short on pitching, have an eye on losing and want to give some younger players a chance to shine.
If Perdomo does succeed this year, it’ll be in a short burst with an eye towards the future, he’s a risky gamble at this point of his career though.

Free San Francisco Giants vs. San Diego Padres MLB Prediction:
Fifth starters always make for interesting games and this one could be the same. Both pitchers are combustible, yet the Padres offense doesn’t project much scoring this year.
The Giants are the better team and I’m rooting for Cain, Giants take the win in San Diego’s home opener.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: UNDER 8
Despite the weakness of both pitchers, I think it’s possible that Cain has a strong showing considering that he’s starting the season healthy. The Padres lineup will certainly help with that too. Take the under.
