MLB: San Diego Padres at Pittsburgh Pirates Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Austin Meadows is ready to make his long awaited big league debut. The former first rounder will bat 7th and play center field while Marte’s oblique recovers. Meadows has slashed .294/.336/.397 through 32 games in Indianapolis.

Ivan Nova will be making the start today for the Bucs. The month of May has been tough for the right hander to navigate. Nova has an ERA of 12.22 through 12.1 innings pitched this month.

The Padres will send Tyson Ross to the hill. Ross is has pitched well in 2018 but doesn’t have the record to show for it - he is 1-3, 3.40 ERA, 53 SO in 47.2 IP.
