Onto Tuesday and it’s a full slate starting at 7pm ET.

He is one of the best pitchers this season and in the pitchers ballpark of Petco. Also note that the Padres are average in Runs scored & ranked last in team batting average.

Facing Gibson he’s 5/15 with a Home Run. He last homered on the 14th August in Texas.

Off of Sabathia he’s 1 for 2 that 1 left the yard.

P Jake Arrieta (CHC) – 30 points
P Andrew Cashner (MIA) – 20 points
C Evan Gattis (HOU) – 7 points
1B Miguel Cabrera (DET) – 14 points
2B Joe Panik (SF) – 9 points
3B Nolan Arenado (COL) – 16 points
SS Xander Bogaerts (BOS) – 10 points
OF Leonys Martin (SEA) – 9 points
OF JD Martinez (DET) – 14 points
OF Mike Trout (LAA) – 17 points
That would net 146 points and that total should place well, good chances at points from the mound and this team should get 2 HR. Then it’s all about guys picking up walks, RBI’s and hoping if they do reach base someone else knocks them in for an extra 2 points.
