San Diego Padres Fantasy Spin

Ian Kinsler went 0-for-4 as the Padres' leadoff man Tuesday, dropping his average to .158. The Padres were likely planning on making Ian Kinsler a utilityman at some point over the course of his two-year, $8 million contract. It's not too early for it to happen now, as Luis Urias offers quite a bit more offensive potential at second base.

San Francisco Giants Fantasy Spin

Courtesy of a three-run double and a sac fly, Kevin Pillar turned in a second straight four-RBI game on Tuesday. Pillar had one RBI in 10 games this season before collecting eight the last two days. Last season, he had eight RBI or fewer in four of the six months. Pillar won't keep hitting for any length of time, so his only path to mixed-league value would be ramping up the steal attempts. It is a little interesting that he does have two steals in his last four games.

MLB Betting Trends

San Diego

The Padres are 5-2 in their last seven road games versus right-handed pitching.

San Francisco

The Giants have dropped 37 of their last 53 games overall and are just 2-7 in their last nine home games.


Dereck Rodriguez owns a 3.01 ERA but a 4.52 SIERA, indicating that he’s due for some regression sooner rather than later. That said, his sabermetric numbers suggested regression all last year too and he proved to be effective for the Giants. His biggest strength is that he doesn’t walk many batters (6.8%). He attacks hitters and trusts his defense, which, remains one of the few strengths that the Giants have in 2019. While San Francisco’s offense isn’t a strength, the Giants are seeing San Diego pitching well in this series, racking up a combined 15 runs in their two games against the Padres.

The Pick: San Francisco Giants -108
