Odrisamer Despaigne still a tough sell


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/21/2014) Clearly, Odrisamer Despaigne's stock has improved since he first reached the majors in late June. Then, he was a 27-year-old mystery coming off a miserable seven-start showing in the minors. Now, he's nearly throwing no-hitters.

But while the shrinking walk rate and growing strikeout rate over his last two starts are both encouraging signs, something about his early success smells fishy to me.

For one thing, neither the walk rate nor the strikeout rate, even with the recent improvement, is all that good. For another, I actually saw him pitch this time. It's entertaining to watch, I must admit, but it also kind of reminds me of Freddy Garcia.

I hate to use the word "gimmicky," but like Garcia, Despaigne is a bit of a junkballer. He throws a wide variety of pitches -- many of them the slow, loopy kind -- and while it can catch teams off guard at times, as happened to the Dodgers in Game 4 of the NLDS against Garcia last year, it doesn't have much staying power. As the scouting reports catch up to Despaigne, I think we'll see him get hit harder, especially since he's not exactly missing bats now.

It doesn't mean he's useless in Fantasy, but in standard 12-team leagues, I think you can do better off the waiver wire, especially if Rubby De La Rosa or Danny Salazar are still available.


Odrisamer Despaigne flirts with no-no, hit with no-decision


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/20/2014) Padres starting pitcher Odrisamer Despaigne went from within four outs of the first no-hitter in club history to settling for a no-decision in a span of two batter Sunday afternoon at home against the Mets.

Despaigne saw his no-hit bid come to an end with a double to Daniel Murphy in the seventh inning. The next batter, David Wright, drove in the game-tying run with a single to center field, ending his outing. The right-hander yielded one run on two hits and three walks while striking out five over 7 2/3 innings of work. Of his 123 pitches, 75 were strikes.

Despaigne owns a 1.31 ERA and a 0.90 WHIP over his first five starts (34 1/3 innings). His next start will come Friday at Atlanta.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Odrisamer Despaigne stepping up on 'bigger stage'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/30/2014) Padres starting pitcher Odrisamer Despaigne has been pretty solid through his first two MLB starts, which has been an interesting turnaround after he went 1-3 with a 7.61 ERA in five starts for Triple-A El Paso. 

"The feedback we got was that there were a number of at-bats that looked like big-league pitching, a number of innings that looked like big-league pitching," Padres manager Bud Black said, per U-T San Diego. "Where this guy is in his career, where he's come from -- not that he wasn't challenged in Double-A or Triple-A -- but maybe he needed that bigger stage to totally focus."

Teammate Cameron Maybin also offered his explanation for the rookie's success.

"What he really does well is he changes speeds with his fastball," Maybin said. "He's got a few different arm angles. It seems like he never throws two fastballs in a row at the same speed. One may cut, one may sink, and he's got a four-seamer that can get up to 93, 94. He pitches in and out really well. He and (catcher Yasmani Grandal) have been on a really good pace the last two times out. It's been fun to watch from centerfield. The guy really has a clue about what he's doing out there."


Odrisamer Despaigne surrenders one run in win Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/29/2014) Padres pitcher Odrisamer Despaigne picked up his second straight win Sunday, giving up one earned run on five hits and four walks in 6 2/3 innings while striking out two in his team's 2-1 victory over the Diamondbacks.

Despaigne (2-0) has shown a knack for keeping the opposition off the scoreboard in his first two outings despite not displaying overpowering stuff. The only run he surrendered Sunday came on a first-inning single. Despaigne owns a 0.66 ERA but also a 3:4 K:BB ratio in 13 2/3 innings over his first two starts. He's not scheduled to make another start but could be called upon soon after winning his first two.


Odrisamer Despaigne twirls seven scoreless innings in debut


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/24/2014) Padres pitcher Odrisamer Despaigne had a major-league debut to remember Monday, giving up just four hits in seven scoreless innings while striking out one and walking none to earn a win in his team's 6-0 shutout of the Giants.

Despaigne (1-0) struggled in his five starts with Triple-A El Paso, posting a 7.61 ERA and 2.07 WHIP while striking out 29 in 23 2/3 innings. He had a diametrically opposite performance in his Padres debut, consistently pitching to contact but keeping the opposition off the scoreboard. If he sticks in the rotation, he could be called upon to pitch Sunday against the Diamondbacks.


Odrisamer Despaigne added to roster Monday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
