Perdomo’s sinker/slider combo has given the Rule 5 right-hander a pair of legitimate big league out pitches. He’s still struggling with the long ball, but has looked much sharper lately, and the Padres have won his last three outings.

Arrieta is coming off his second loss this season, but only his second in his past 28 starts. The problem? Fastball command. Plus, Arrieta said he needs to be more aggressive. He's noticed batters waiting for him to make mistakes.

Career stats

Hendricks is coming off a strange start. He gave up one hit over five innings against the Marlins, but it was a grand slam. He also tied a career high with four walks, and he gave the Marlins credit for not swinging at some borderline pitches.
