Paddack set for debut in Padres-Giants finale

A second straight Padres starting pitcher will be making his major league debut Sunday afternoon, while the Giants counter with a veteran trying to rebuild his career after a series of shoulder injuries in 2018.

Chris Paddack, 23, who had a great spring following a triumphant 2018 minor league return from Tommy John surgery, will start for the Padres.

The Giants will counter with 34-year-old Jeff Samardzija while looking for a second straight win and a split of the season-opening, four-game series in San Diego.

Paddack, who split the 2018 season between Class-A Lake Elsinore and Double-A San Antonio, has a tough act to follow when it comes to the young Padres rotation. Through the first three games of the season, sophomores Eric Lauer and Joey Lucchesi and rookie Nick Margevicius have held the Giants to one run on 10 hits, three walks and two hit batters with 15 strikeouts in 16 1/3 innings.

There’s something oddly delightful about the Padres this year- they seem to be defying much of what everyone else is doing with team-building, and it may be interesting if it works….
