2021 San Diego Padres Top 15 Prospects

The Padres’ window officially opened in 2020 with their first appearance in the playoffs since 2006.  It was an impressive run that ended in a three-game sweep by the Dodgers but with their young Major League talent and current minor league pipeline, the window should be open for several years.

MacKenzie Gore is one of the best pitchers in the minor leagues and leads our list.  It was disappointing that he didn’t get the call in 2020.  Both Luis Patino (now traded to the Rays) and Ryan Weathers got the call and Gore was arguably ahead of them on the “next ready” list.  Besides those three, the pitching is very deep with the key that all of them throw hard.

Offensively, CJ Abrams and Luis Campusano lead the list.  Abrams is still a couple of years away but has the makings of an elite leadoff man.  Campusano is a Top 3 catching prospect in the game but got caught carrying 79 grams of weed and will have to sort through that before he can continue his career.
