A Look at Padres Prospect Hansel Rodriguez

August 1, 2017

With all the great right-handed pitching in the Padres’ farm system it is easy to overlook some deeper arms with tremendous potential in the system. With guys like Cal Quantrill, Eric Lauer, Anderson Espinoza, Michael Baez, Joey Lucchesi, Logan Allen, Jacob Nix, and Adrian Morejon, it’s easy to pay little attention to the Hansel Rodriguez‘s of the farm system. Hansel Rodriguez is a 20-year-old RHP currently playing for the Fort…


Top Prospect Morejon Strong in Fort Wayne Debut

July 30, 2017

Almost a week ago, it surfaced that 18 year old Adrian Morejon would be getting promoted to full season A ball. After starting seven games for short-season Tri-City, Morejon showed tremendous control and feel for his pitches. He seemed more advanced than other competition in the league. The Padres decided to promote him to challenge him in an effort to help develop that Padres’ prized prospect. Over his seven starts…


Framing the Friars: Padres Lose to Mets in a Game of Firsts

July 25, 2017

Coming into Tuesday night against the Mets, the Padres’ bullpen has a few question marks. After the trade on Monday with the Kansas City Royals, it is unclear to the Padres’ relief pitchers what their roles are now. Moving two late-inning arms, Ryan Buchter and closer Brandon Maurer, Andy Green has to sort out when and where to use his remaining bullpen. Tuesday night’s pitchers: Padres: RHP Kyle Lloyd (MLB debut)…


Craig Stammen & Kirby Yates are Trade Deadline Candidates

July 8, 2017

2017 MLB All-Star Brad Hand is the name seen the most as a potential trade candidate. Given his performance this season, as well as his all-star status, the Padres will probably be asking for a pretty hefty package for Hand at the deadline. The Padres have a couple of other less expensive options in the bullpen as the trade deadline nears. Relievers Craig Stammen and Kirby Yates have both put…


Framing the Friars: Padres Take Series in Victory Over Defending A.L. Champs

July 5, 2017

The Padres won their third straight game Wednesday night, defeating the reigning American League Champs. The Friars swept the reigning World Series Champion Cubs earlier in the year, and have a chance to do the same to the Indians tomorrow. Luis Perdomo started for the Padres and went five innings, giving up two runs (one earned) striking out four, and walking none. Perdomo won his third straight start. That is…


A Glance at the 2017 SDSU Aztec Football Season

June 21, 2017

  Times have not been better for SDSU football since the Marshall Faulk days. The Aztecs are coming off back-to-back Mountain West Conference Championships. In 2015, the Aztecs finished with a record of 11-3, while going undefeated (8-0) in Mountain West play. Last year they also finished 11-3, but 6-2 in conference play. The football team is also coming off of convincing back-to-back bowl game wins, defeating Cincinnati 42-7 in…


The San Diego Padres 2017 Progress Report

June 2, 2017

It’s no surprise that the 2017 San Diego Padres are more than 10 games under .500 a little over one-third through the season. There has been some pleasant surprises so far, but also some disappointing performances. There has been some solid baseball played, but also some pitifully poor performances, lacking hustle and basic fundamentals. Some games have been hard to watch this year, but fortunately the Padres have found themselves…


The San Diego Padres 2020 Potential 25-Man Roster

April 19, 2017

Yes, the Padres have the lowest payroll in the MLB. And yes, the Padres are paying players on other teams more than the players on their own team. And yes, the Padres have the second-youngest team in baseball. But yes, these are also all positive things for the 2020 season. MLB Pipeline rated the Padres farm system as the fourth best in all of baseball. That is incredible, considering general…


The Padres May Have Found Another Luis Perdomo in 2017 (Miguel Diaz)

April 4, 2017

Luis Perdomo was selected by the Padres prior to the 2016 season via Rule-5 draft. The Padres selected Perdomo from the Cardinals’ farm system. A.J. Preller took a huge gamble, giving a roster spot for the 2016 season to a young pitcher who never had pitched above Low-A ball. Luis Perdomo started the 2016 season in the bullpen, and would initially be used in only limited game action. Perdomo made…


Another Padres Season, Another New Shortstop

March 29, 2017

If it seems like the Padres haven’t had a shortstop since the Khalil Greene days to you… It’s because they haven’t. The Padres have gone through Everth Cabrera, Miguel Tejada, Jason Bartlett, Alexi Amarista, and most recently, Alexei Ramirez as their opening day shortstops since 2009. The shortstop position has provided absolutely no stability for nearly the past decade in San Diego. Luckily the Padres’ farm system has been loaded up…
