Right-hander overcome by emotion after first game back from Tommy John surgery
Congratulations to Nina “Weird Al” Jankowicz. Her rewritten “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” was so funny it landed her a job as head of the “Disinformation Board.” Some real/fake issues Nina will have to decide on: the border problem, inflation, John Sterling’s play-by-play, CNN, whether Stitches is a public handicapper and whether “My Pillow” is the most comfortable pillow you will ever own? She has work cut out for her. Mike Clevinger’s back from Tommy John surgery and excited to make his return for San Diego against his former team. Cleveland, now the Guardians, counters with Zach Plesac, who was whacked for six runs in 3 ²/₃ innings by the Angels in his last start. Play 10 units on the Padres. Refuse to lose!

Padres vs. Guardians Prediction and Odds for Tuesday, May 3 (Predicting the Return of Mike Clevinger)
The San Diego Padres look to grow their lead in the NL West when they kick off a short two-game series against the Cleveland Guardians tonight. San Diego has been one of the best teams in baseball over the last two weeks with a 10-3 record in their last 13 games. However, their recent success is a bit deceiving. Eight of those ten wins came against either the Reds or Pirates. They are two of the worst teams in the MLB. The Padres swept the Reds twice in the last 12 days.
CLEVELAND, Ohio -- It’s not time for a complete audit, but it seems like a quick inventory is in order. The Guardians, at the time operating under the name Indians, on Aug. 31, 2020 traded right-hander Mike Clevinger and outfielder Greg Allen to San Diego for left-hander Joey Cantillo, infielder Gabriel Arias, catcher Austin Hedges, infielder Owen Miller, outfielder-first baseman Josh Naylor and right-hander Cal Quantrill.
