San Diego Padres DFS SPIN

Padres acting manager Ryan Christiansen told reporters on Sunday that MacKenzie Gore and Nick Martinez are likely to work out of the bullpen for the time being with Blake Snell returning to the rotation. There have been conflicting reports in recent days regarding whether or not the Padres will continue to employ a six-man rotation now that Snell is returning. It sounds like -- at least for now -- they may try to see how it works with five and then adjust from there. It's also possible they plan to have either Gore or Nick Martinez work in tandem with Snell while he continues to build up his stamina. Either way, it sounds like a dicey situation for fantasy managers for the upcoming week.

Philadelphia Phillies DFS Spin

Zack Wheeler allowed three runs in 5 1/3 innings while not factoring into the decision Thursday against the Dodgers. Wheeler allowed six hits, and he procured seven strikeouts with just one walk. The right-hander was making his first start since coming off the COVID-19 injured list, and he allowed a homer to Cody Bellinger and a two-run double to Will Smith. Outside of that, it was a strong effort, and he's (mostly) been better than his 4.26 ERA indicates. His next chance to lower that mark comes on Tuesday in San Diego against the Padres.


The Padres are now 18-8 in their last 26 games overall, are 9-3 in their last 12 road games and have won seven of their last eight games versus National League East. On the other side, the Phillies are just 1-5 in their last five home games, are 1-5 in their last five games as a favorite and are 4-12 in their last 16 games versus a starter with a WHIP less than 1.15.
