60- Wilfredo Tovar- C  11/13/2001
Highest Level: DSL Padres
2019 Stats: .892 OPS (.369/.462/.431) 0 HR/7 RBI   8 BB/15 K

This young athletic catcher has a very high upside. In time, he could be a real exceptional talent. The 17-year-old right-handed hitting catcher consistently barrels up baseballs. He has developing power and is gaining muscle to his 6-foot-0, 174 lb frame. Tovar runs well for a catcher. He has decent defensive skill, and there is no reason not to believe the Venezuelan teenager will remain at the position moving forward.

59- Travis Radke– LHP  03/06/1993
Highest Level: Triple-A El Paso
2019 Stats: (4-2) 2.64 ERA/1.409 WHIP  71.2 IP/76 K

Even though he is not blessed with a tremendous fastball, Radke attacks hitters relentlessly. The left-handed hitter has had to grind his way all the way to El Paso, showing a lot of moxie. He throws in the high 80’s to low 90’s with his fastball, but throws strikes and locates all his pitches really well. He should get a taste of major league life soon.

58- Ignacio Feliz- RHP  10/23/1999
Highest Level: Short Season Tri-City
2019 Stats: (2-4) 4.40 ERA/1.465 ERA  57.1 IP/55 K

Acquired from the Cleveland Indians for Walker Locket, this 19-year-old has a decent upside to him. The converted shortstop shows a very nice mix of pitches including a sinking fastball and a few offspeed deliveries (curve and change). The curveball looks to be his best pitch presently. He short arms the ball with his motion, and there might be some concerns with his longterm health, but there is upside with him. Feliz is also described as being wise for his age.

57- Eguy Rosario– INF  08/25/1999
Highest Level: Single-A Lake Elsinore
2019 Stats: .742 OPS  (.278/.331/.412)  7 HR/72 RBIs  37 BB/103 K  21 SB

Rosario is an interesting prospect, as he plays all over the diamond and is still only 20 years of age. It feels like he has been in the system for a long time. The pull hitter is aggressive at the plate where he shows decent power for his size. The right-handed hitter has plus speed and likes to run the bases. He can play all over the infield, but will probably settle at second base when it is all said and done. Rosario is eligible for the Rule-5 draft this winter

56- Albert Fabian– OF  12/21/2001
Highest Level: DSL Padres
2019 Stats: .743 OPS (.245/.361/.381)  2 HR/20 RBIs  23 BB/34 K

There is a lot to like about this 17-year-old left-handed swinger from the D.R. He is showing excellent power potential and a plus eye at the plate. Fabian has a quick bat and is a plus hitter with the ability to barrel up baseballs continually. He projects as an outfielder, but can also play first base if needed.

55- Matt Brash– RHP  05/12/1998
Highest Level: Single-A Fort Wayne
2019 Stats: (0-0) 1.69 ERA/0.750 WHIP  5.1 IP/8 K

Canadian right-handed pitcher Matt Brash was selected 113th overall by the Padres in June. He has a decent fastball where he threw for Niagra University. Brash spots his pitches well and made his debut for the Fort Wayne TinCaps this season. He should be able to stay in the rotation as he features a decent mix of pitches.

54- Carlos Guarate- RHP 03/30/2001
Highest Level: Single-A Fort Wayne
2019 Stats: (6-1) 2.22 ERA/1.21 WHIP  48.2 IP/43 K

This 18-year old right-handed pitcher has a very loose arm and decent arm speed. He is currently hitting the low 90’s with his velocity, but there is room for growth in him. Expect the velocity to increase as he gets older. Guarate already has a plus curveball, which is a true 12-to-6 breaking pitch. He shows a slider and a change, but both pitches need work. The Venezuelan pitcher got a spot start in Fort Wayne to end the season and pitched pretty well. There is a good chance he starts there in 2020.

53- Bodi Rascon- LHP  02/03/2001
Highest Level: AZL Padres
2019 Stats: (0-0)  0.00 ERA/0.83 WHIP  6 IP/6 K

High school left-handed pitcher Bodi Rascon got over slot value. He has already thrown in Arizona this summer and projects as a possible mid-rotation starter. Rascon is presently throwing in the lower 90’s with his fastball, but he could gain more velocity in time. He is described as an athletic pitcher.

52- Gabriel Morales- LHP  04/14/1999
Highest Level: Short Season Tri-City
2019 Stats: (4-1) 2.29 ERA/1.020 WHIP  51 IP/60 K

There is a lot to like about this young left-handed pitcher from Venezuela. At 6-foot-3, he has excellent size. He repeats his mechanics very well and is already throwing in the mid-’90s with his fastball velocity. The southpaw throws strikes and has shown a very durable arm. Morales could quickly climb this list.

51- Junior Perez  OF 07/04/2001
Highest Level: AZL Padres
2019 Stats: .861 OPS (.268/.349/.512)  11 HR/39 RBIs  24 BB/59 K 11 SB

Perez has come out of nowhere to show that he is a power threat and an intriguing prospect. The 6-foot-1 right-handed hitter is not huge but has natural power and has shown the ability to take a walk as well. Those are two advanced skills from a teenager. There is a speed element to his game as well as Perez plays a solid outfield. The Dominican youngster is another sleeper in this system.

  1. James,
    Great effort, as usual! You covered most of the position players of interest with the exception of Ethan Skender and Ripken Reyes, who had decent years. Long-time rated pitchers Michel Baez and Henry Henry were missing and I liked the stats I saw on Jesus Lugo, Ethan Elliott and Martin Carrasco.

    Lots of talent in the system with most just reaching or below AA.
    Look forward to Spring update!

    1. Baez is not considered a prospect anymore… Henry probably should have made the cut. Skender and Reyes were close… this system is so deep

  2. Thanks for the work James, I can imagine how hard it is to put together this list, but a couple of possible omissions, Tom Cosgrove, and Lake Bachar.

    1. Thank you. Appreciate the comment… the system is so deep. I agree. Both could have easily made the list. It is difficult to recognize them all.

  3. Great list James! Thank you for putting all the time in to make these exhaustive lists. Helps us Padre fans learn/know about more players than just the top 30 guys.
