LHP Ryan weathers is the intended starting pitcher for the Padres. In five appearances this season (two starts), he’s 1-0 with an ERA of 0.59, 0.59 WHIP, 9.4 K / 9 and 2.9 BB / 9 in 15 1/3 IP.
Weathers pitched three scoreless innings against Arizona with just one abandoned hit earlier this month on his Big League debut.
His two starts came against a powerful Dodger attack, and he totaled 9 1/3 IP with two hits allowed, 0 ER and nine strikeouts while hitting 89 shots last time around.
RHP Taylor widener is set to make his fifth start of the season for Arizona. In his first four outings, he went 1-0 with an ERA of 2.82, 1.12 WHIP, 7.3 K / 9 and 2.4 BB / 9 in 22 1/3 IP.
Widener struck out seven batters in his last start, which was against the Reds, but also served three homers.
Overall, his area stats weren’t backed up by his skills, and he succeeded largely thanks to a BABIP of .234 and a base percentage of 88.2%.

Silver Line (ML)
Arizona has been on a roll lately, winning seven of their last eight games and averaging 6.6 points per game during that time.
But the Padres can score points as well, and Weathers’ early season success looks a lot more legitimate than Widener’s.
Support the PADRES (-175) is the game here.
Race Line / Against Spread (ATS)
The Padres have won 13 games this season, and 10 have been decided by more than one set, including six of their eight road wins.
A big day against Widener wouldn’t be surprising, and even if it’s tied late, the road team has a chance to put together a big round.
Look for the PADRES -1.5 (-110) to win this contest by more than one race.
Over / Under (O / U)
The Diamondback offense is hot, and the Padres face a pitcher with a major regression. The Over is 7-2 in Arizona’s last nine home games, and OVER 9 (-115) should strike in this contest.
