Mackenzie Gore is a San Diego Padre, and we are both ecstatic about it.
In this week’s show, we discuss the young lefty and what his abilities are.
He comes with great upside, but will he be able to live up the high expectations? Only time will tell.
The team shocked the Padres world, as they selected two catchers with its next two picks. We discuss the duo and what the Padres were thinking.
Wil Myers has not played well recently. We discuss his slump and if it is time for Padres’ fans to be concerned with his lack of production.
Ryan Schimpf was recently demoted to Triple-A, so we talk about him for a bit. Does he have any value to the team in the trade market, and can he make it back to the big league roster and contribute this season? With the play of Cory Spangenberg of late, that remains unlikely.
Phil Maton made his debut this week, so Patrick tells us about spin rate, which is his calling card.
In the minor league report we learn about the Tri-City Dust Devils roster and we talk about Jacob Nix for a bit.
In the rapid fire segment we speak about Myers moving to the outfield, the Padres starting outfield come September and what it could look like, and the future of Dinelson Lamet. Will the rookie pitcher remain on the staff after the injured pitchers return.
