San Diego Padres Fantasy Spin
Franmil Reyes went 2-for-4 with an RBI groundout and a run scored in Sunday's loss to the Nationals. Reyes was in the middle of the action on both of the Padres' runs on the afternoon, singling and scoring in the fourth inning before driving in a run with a groundout in the ninth. It's rare that a multi-hit day for the 23-year-old doesn't include a homer, as he's among the best in the league with 19 dongs but is hitting just .248 with a .300 on-base percentage through Sunday. Pedestrian average and OBP aside, that power will keep him in the lineup, and in the middle of the lineup, for the foreseeable future.
San Francisco Giants Fantasy Spin
Tyle Beede was charged with six runs (five earned) and a loss against the Mets on Wednesday. He struck out five, walked four and yielded five base hits in five innings. The fourth frame was particularly rough -- he served up a solo homer to Michael Conforto and a three-run jack to Amed Rosario. Beede falls to 0-2 with a frightful 8.15 ERA and 2.21 WHIP after five games (three starts). He has 19 strikeouts, 15 walks and four homers allowed in 17 2/3 innings of work on the season. Fantasy owners should avoid Beede like the plague until he proves he can get big-league hitters out.
MLB Betting Trends
The Padres are 14-4 in their last 18 games following an off day.
The Giants have lost four of their last five games and are just 1-7 in their last eight home contests.
Beede is low-end starter with a below average strikeout rate and a major issue with walks. Chris Paddack, meanwhile, has solid strikeout (27.4%) and swinging-strike rates (11.2%), as well as an elite walk rate (5.0%). The Padres are 6-2 in their last eight games versus the Giants overall and have won four of Paddack’s last five starts versus an opponent with a losing record.
