Wade LeBlanc is the most likely candidate to start for the Angels on Saturday.
Angels skipper Mike Scioscia said he wouldn't announce his starter until after Wednesday night's game, but LeBlanc is the most logical choice. With a 6.88 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 14/6 K/BB ratio through his 17 frames, he isn't a good streaming option in mixed leagues.
Will Venable is not in the Padres starting lineup for Wednesday's contest against the Phillies
It appears to be just a routine day off for the struggling outfielder. After a breakthrough 2013 campaign, he's hitting just .222/.289/.316 with 101 strikeouts in 370 at-bats.
Matt Duffy smacked a pinch-hit two-run single in the top of the ninth inning to lead the Giants past the Diamondbacks 4-2 on Wednesday afternoon.
The tie-snapping two-run single helped the Giants capitalize on the Dodgers' blowout loss Wednesday in Colorado, pushing San Francisco to within two games of Los Angeles for the National League West division lead. Duffy is batting .235/.278/.275 in limited action this season for the Giants.
Madison Bumgarner held the Diamondbacks to two runs over six innings Wednesday in a no-decision.
San Francisco won the game in the top of the ninth inning on a pinch-it two-run single from Matt Duffy. Bumgarner gave up seven hits and two walks, but he kept the D'Backs from inflicting serious damage over his six frames. He struck out six, and now owns a 2.91 ERA, 1.10 WHIP, and 214/43 K/BB ratio in 210 innings this season. A hugely-important road start against the rival Dodgers is next.
Andrew Chafin allowed two earned runs over six innings Wednesday in a no-decision against the Giants.
Chafin walked four but surrendered only three hits in the decent spot start. San Francisco wound up winning in the top of the ninth inning when pinch-hitter Matt Duffy smacked a two-run single. Chafin could get another try next week, but he's not fantasy-relevant.
