Dream11 Fantasy Baseball: Padres at Angels

This article is part of our Dream11 Fantasy Baseball series.

San Diego Padres (22-15) at Los Angeles Angels (12-24)

Wednesday, September 2nd, 9:40 PM EDT

Projected Starters

RHP Dinelson Lamet (2-1, 2.35 ERA) vs RHP Julio Teheran (0-2, 9.17 ERA)

Meanwhile, Julio Teheran has been in and out of the rotation this year and his 9.17 ERA isn't really promising by any standard.
