DeSclafani @ Taillon – Taillon has been impressive so far.
Tomlin @ Pineda – Pineda cannot be trusted.
Samardzija @ G. Gonzalez – Tough matchup for the inconsistent Samardzija. I’ll sit this one out.
Big Erv @ Snell
Syndergaard @ Verlander
Gallardo @ M. Gonzalez
M. Perez @ Keuchel – Keuchel coming off his worst outing in awhile, but I’ll stick with him.
De La Cruz @ Garcia – I’m expecting a solid bounceback performance from Garcia.
Liriano @ Gee
Phelps @ J. De La Rosa
Ch. Anderson @ Shipley
Lester @ Overton
S. Wright @ Kazmir
Lincecum @ King Felix
Hellickson @ Friedrich – Hellickson has allowed 3 ER or fewer in seven of his last eight starts and the Padres rank 13th in the NL in OPS.
