The San Diego Padres will play their first game Tuesday since acquiring infielder Adam Frazier and will look to his bat to help solve the riddle that is Oakland rookie James Kaprielian.

Opponents are hitting .202 off Kaprielian this season. In 12 starts, the former Yankees No. 1 pick has allowed three runs or fewer 11 times and given up five hits or fewer 11 times in accruing a 5-3 record and 2.65 ERA.

Padres starter Chris Paddack is doing a good job of limiting walks (two per nine innings) but has a 5.17 ERA with a .270 opponents batting average and has surrendered at least three runs in four of his past five starts.

Oakland’s bullpen enters the series in good form, having the best ERA in the AL the past 30 days. Overall, the Athletics have the second-best road ERA among AL teams at 3.67.

With Oakland having allowed four runs or fewer in 13 of its past 14 games and the Padres having scored three runs or fewer in five of their past six games, the Athletics will help their playoff chances with a win on Tuesday.

The play: Athletics, +115.
