The Rangers have been struggling which means there are no guarantees when they take on a team like San Diego.
They had only won 3 of their last 1o heading into the series opener on Monday. On paper it looks like this team should have a powerful diverse offense that can beat you in many ways. On the field they are batting just .219.
It is hard to have many rallies with that low average.
Surprisingly A.J. Griffin has been pretty good this season. He is 3-0 with an ERA of 3.54 in four starts.
Most impressive is he is averaging more than a strikeout per inning. something he has never done over a full season in the Majors.
Missing bats is a key skill so we will have to see if he can keep it up or whether it is just a result of small sample size.
San Diego Padres
San Diego is not good but they are competing at home. Wil Myers is having a nice follow up season to his breakout last year and they can hit some home runs but this team struggles to put together the hits needed for sustained offense.
They have a slightly worse team batting average than Texas at .217. There could be a lot of three up and three down innings in this series.
Jered Weaver should be familiar to a lot of the Rangers having pitched in the AL West for his entire career up to this season. I think that is going to spell bad news as Weaver has been getting hit hard by everyone anyway.
He has given up a shocking 12 homers already this season…and the Rangers have some power.

Free Texas Rangers vs. San Diego Padres MLB Prediction:
Neither team is playing great right now. Even though there is no line yet my hunch is that there will be more value with the visitors.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Texas ML
Griffiin is normally a fade but me but Weaver is always a fade. I don’t like Griffin but I can live with backing him, especially in this kind of a matchup.
