Fantasy Impact:

San Diego has announced that Eric Lauer will pitch on Opening Day and that he'll be followed in the rotation by Joey Lucchesi. However, they haven't officially announced anything beyond that. Hopefully for Paddack's fantasy owners he can deliver a strong start tomorrow, which could be all the Padres need to see before officially naming him their number-three starter. In 12 2/3 innings this spring Paddack has struck out 20 and allowed three earned runs.
