This is not an offensive slump; this is a real problem which The San Diego Padres coaching staff along with Jayce Tingler & Damion Easley must solve as soon as possible.
When you see a roster with Manny Machado, Eric Hosmer, Fernando Tatis Jr. and others you probably think that it’s one of the greatest offenses in the league, but in this case it’s the complete opposite.
The Padres offense is the second-last in the National League just one place above Pirates. It has been a challenge since the beginning of the season for The Padres to find their productive way.
Before the series in Oracle Park against The Giants, San Diego had an offensive line of AVG.228/ OBP.305/ SLG.345/OPS .650, however, in the last seven days they have been the worst team in the league batting AVG.118 with and OBP of .250 a dreadful SLG.277 and lastly .528 in the OPS spot.
Blake Snell can’t throw strikes
Blake Snell says that he knows what he must do to go deep in the games, but now he needs to do something to hit the strike zone with consistency.
The left-hander walked six in his last start and allowed 4 runs in 4.2 innings of work. Thus far in the month of May, Blake Snell has walked 9 batters in 9.2 innings, this means that he walks at least one batter per inning.
MacKenzie Gore’s debut
On Friday, Mackenzie Gore failed to complete a fifth inning of work. His fastball looks good as always, but he was dealing with some struggles on his command. In his fourth inning of work, Gore allowed 3R, 5 hits and walked 3 batters with only 3 strikeouts ending his night with 94 pitches – 54 in the strike zone.

Gore is almost ready to take the big jump onto the big league, but Jayce Tingler in a recent press conference said that The Padres are not going to rush him up. In that case The Padres top prospect has some time to perfect his command and improve his efficiency on the mound.
