I had no idea what I was going to find when I started researching the Padres organization. They traded so many players, would there be 15 relevant players to write about? In short, there sure were…and plenty more.
Look, they traded away a ton of players, so the system took a hit. However, they still have three Top 50 players in CJ Abrams, Luis Campusano, and Robert Hassell. All are good with a chance to be impact performers at the highest level.
If you dig deeper, you find what might be the best collection of teenagers in any system. Now, will any of them make it? Who knows, but they are all talented with significant upside. Then, of course, they still have MacKenzie Gore kicking around. I must tell you, it was a tough capsule to write, but as the old saying goes…it is what it is…until it’s not.
