Since Bronson Arroyo is starting for the Diamondbacks against the Padres tonight, I thought I'd take a look-see at how current Padres have fared against him. He's been around forever, so I figured at least a few of the veteran guys would have a somewhat substantial history with him.
Yonder Alonso: 1-8, BB
Alexi Amarista: 1-10, BB, K
Everth Cabrera: 4-12, 2 2B, 2 RBI, 2 K
Andrew Cashner: 0-2, 2 K
Yasmani Grandal: 1-3, 2 K
Jedd Gyorko: 1-3, K
Nick Hundley: 5-10, 2B, HR, RBI, 2 K
Cameron Maybin: 1-10, RBI, 2 BB, K
Xavier Nady: 7-25, 2B, 2 HR, 5 RBI, 2 K
Seth Smith: 5-16, HR, 3 RBI
Will Venable: 5-15, 2B, RBI, BB, HBP
Chris Denorfia, Jace Peterson, and Rene Rivera have yet to face Arroyo, but the Padres who have stepped in against him are split nearly down the middle between owning and being owned. Alonso, Amarista, Cashner, and Maybin are a collective 3-for-30 with four strikeouts and no extra-base hits; Cabrera, Hundley, Nady, Smith, and Venable have gone 33-for-93 (.354) with five doubles, four homers, and 12 RBI.
Of all days for the Padres to be facing someone Nick Hundley has raked, of course it's on a night when Rene Rivera is practically guaranteed the start due to Cashner starting. Welp, as Bud Black likes to say, that's baseball.
