San Diego Padres DFS Notes

Jake Cronenworth went 3-for-4 with an RBI on Thursday in the Padres' lopsided defeat at the hands of the Diamondbacks. Cronenworth padded the Padres' early lead with an RBI single to right field off righty Matt Peacock in the opening frame, but the Diamondbacks went on to score eight unanswered runs over the next four innings. The 27-year-old infielder is hitting .282/.352/.483 with 77 runs scored, 16 home runs, 56 RBI and four stolen bases across 484 plate appearances.

Washington Nationals DFS Notes

Josh Rojas went 4-for-5 with two RBI on Thursday, leading the Diamondbacks to a 12-3 blowout victory over the Padres in the opener of a four-game series at Chase Field. Rojas reached base safely in five of his six plate appearances out of the Diamondbacks' leadoff spot, tallying a season-high four hits, including a two-run single off righty reliever Craig Stammen in the seventh inning. The versatile 27-year-old top-of-the-order table setter possesses a blend of over-the-fence pop and stolen base prowess, which makes him a sneaky five-category potential impact contributor for fantasy managers over the remainder of the 2021 campaign. He's worthy of a roster spot for fantasy managers in all formats.

Padres vs. Diamondbacks MLB Betting Prediction

The Padres are just 11-27 in their last 38 games in Arizona, are 1-4 in their last five road games and are just 28-61 in their last 89 road games when facing a left-handed starter. Given the struggles that Blake Snell has had in his first season with the Padres, the Diamondbacks are worth a flier as a big underdog.
