The 24-year-old rookie will need to rebound from his first rough outing as a starter, in which he allowed four runs over five innings to the D-backs. In three home starts, Lucchesi has allowed four runs on 13 hits with 17 K's over 15 2/3 innings.

Each of Wheeler’s outings has been worse than the one that came before. His last was a four-inning, four-run no-decision in St. Louis, which cast doubt over the Mets’ decision to keep him in the rotation.

Mitchell has yet to live up to the Padres’ big plans for him this season. Through five starts, he has walked 19 and has a 5.76 ERA. He’s not missing bats with his high-spin curveball, but he’s managed to induce mostly weak contact.

Career stats

The 22-year-old prospect was hit hard in his big league debut on a cold, wet night at Coors Field. He’ll look for a bounceback effort against San Francisco, but he’ll need to have better command of his quality low-90s fastball to do so.
