Even though the MiLB All-Star games don’t garner as much attention as the parent one, they carry more weight and importance, especially since the major league event will no longer have a home-field advantage rule attached to it.

Luis Perdomo is The Most Exciting Padre

For the San Diego Padres, the 2017 season has come with a lot of uncertainty. Given the team is in a state of transition, there aren’t really many sure things at this point in time.
