1. Craig Stammen
Craig Stammen hasn’t been bad throughout his career by any means. In three-plus years with the Padres, he has a 3.21 ERA in 217 appearances. But when he’s off, he can be downright terrible. In game three of the series, he replaced Zach Davies who allowed two earned runs over seven strong innings. The Padres offense did nothing off Dodger pitching all night, but the game was officially put out of reach when Stammen came in. The 36-year-old allowed four earned runs on four hits in his only inning of work.
2. Luis Perdomo
It’s likely time to send Luis Perdomo down to the team’s alternate training site. He got the spot start on a bullpen night on Monday, lasting all of an inning and walked the first batter he faced. The decision to not allow Quantrill to start the game was highly contested, which didn’t help with Perdomo’s short outing. He pitched in the series finale on Thursday, in mop-up duty, allowing three runs on five hits while also walking two in just as many innings.
3. Trent Grisham
Much like Pham, Trent Grisham got off to a quick start, but he’s tailed off as of late. He quietly went two-for-four in the 6-0 loss on Wednesday night, but he went 0-for-6 in the other two games. Manager Jayce Tingler gave him Thursday night off to, hopefully, give him a breather and be ready for the Diamondbacks series on Friday.
