San Diego Padres Betting Preview
Last season was a strange one for the San Diego Padres, as they went from being one of the best teams in the league to also-rans overnight. The second half of their season was a disaster, as the San Francisco Giants and Los Angeles Dodgers enjoyed huge years ahead of them in the NL West standings. But the Padres showed that they have the potential to be legitimate title contenders if they can put it all together for a full season.
San Diego’s offense will be what gets talked about the most, as was the case a season ago. But their pitching was solid while they tailed off at the plate during the second half of the season. They will need both components of their game to take a step forward if they are going to challenge the Dodgers and Giants for supremacy in their division, something they may not be able to muster.

Key Additions: Nick Martinez, Luke Voit
Key Departures: Tommy Pham, Mark Melancon
The Padres showed some intent to improve this offseason, making multiple moves aimed at strengthening a roster that showed plenty of holes down the stretch in 2021. Luke Voit is a power hitter that the Padres hope can help offset the loss of Fernando Tatis Jr. for a good chunk of the season while Tatis is out with a broken wrist. But the overall feel of this offseason for the Padres is that they did not do enough to raise their level to join the elites in the National League.
The loss of Melancon is especially devastating for the Padres coming into 2022, as he racked up nearly 40 saves last year. San Diego does not appear to have a concrete plan in place for the closer role this season, as Robert Suarez is one option on a team set to downgrade at that spot. While the Padres tried to improve their team coming into the season, how much of an improvement will be made is debatable.

|Strikeout Percentage (K%)||21.6% (5th)||21.5% (6th)|
|Walk Percentage (BB%)||9.6% (T-4th)||9.1% (14th)|
The Padres were good at hitting for power for a chunk of the season, and were good at avoiding strikeouts for most of the season. They were a top-five team in avoiding strikeouts and drawing walks last year. But that walk number and the power numbers for the Padres in general could decline as Tatis is set to miss a significant amount of time with his wrist injury.
This was a team that was not great at hitting for average, which they will need to do to help make up for the early loss of Tatis. But no matter how they find their successes at the plate, consistency is going to be the key for a team that was sorely lacking in that department in the latter stages of 2021.
|2021 (Rank)||2020 (Rank)|
|Earned Run Average (ERA)||4.10 (14th)||3.87 (7th)|
|Fielding Independent Pitching (FIP)||4.18 (T-14th)||3.88 (5th)|
|Adj. Fielding Independent Pitching (xFIP)||4.08 (T-11th)||3.97 (5th)|
|Strikeout Percentage (K%)||25.0% (6th)||26.2% (4th)|
|Walk Percentage (BB%)||8.5% (13th)||7.9% (5th)|
|Left On Base Percentage (LOB%)||73.6% (11th)||74.0% (10th)|
The pitching numbers for the Padres were just as good as their hitting numbers, if not slightly better, despite all of the attention being on Tatis and the offense. San Diego pitchers strike out a quarter of the batters they faced a season ago, and were in the top-half of the league in ERA, FIP, and xFIP. But the questions about the back end of their bullpen could really hurt what was a solid pitching staff last year.
Losing Melancon to a division opponent will force the Padres into changing the back end of their bullpen around, and they could go with a closer by committee situation until they figure out the best solution moving forward. With multiple 100-win teams from last season still residing in their division, the Padres will not have all that much time to figure out what to do when attempting to close games out.
Positives & Negatives
For the Padres, the biggest positive coming into this season is their potential, as they showed in the first half of last season that they can simply bludgeon opponents into submission. They need to be a more consistent offensive ballclub if they want to become legitimate title contenders. But the Padres’ addition of Voit and the anticipated return of Tatis this season will make them appointment viewing.
On the negative side, their lack of consistency last season was alarming, and they are going to be without one of the top bats in baseball for a significant period of time. A team competing with the Dodgers and Giants in the NL West might be competing for a Wild Card spot right off the jump, meaning that dips in form are simply not something the Padres can afford.
San Diego Padres Pick & Prediction: Under 89.5
This was a middle of the pack team last season, and they are dealing with many of the same issues that they faced a season ago. Being without Tatis for months will be a problem for a team that really fell apart when injuries claimed him in 2021. The Padres will finish around .500 again this year, and the under on the Padres’ season win total will go under when all is said and done.
