Phillies at Padres

Petco Park

8:40PM EDT on CSN

Jake Thompson (0-0) 0.00 ERA

PHILLIES: Thompson will make his highly anticipated Major League debut against the Padres. MLBPipeline.com ranks him as the Phillies' top pitching prospect and the No. 70 prospect in baseball. He has a 2.50 ERA this season at Triple-A in 21 starts.

Paul Clemens (1-2) 4.70 ERA

PADRES: Clemens exited his last outing with lower-back tightness, but is feeling no ill effects. The Padres have asked him to throw his curveball more frequently, and it’s easy to see why. Opponents are hitting .167 against it this season.
