It was certainly interesting that the San Diego Padres added Jorge Ona to the 40-man roster protecting him from the Rule 5 Draft.

Ona, by resume, was certainly someone who should have been protected, but there are question marks behind Ona the player.

What’s interesting about protecting Ona was that the Padres had a similar decision with Franmil Reyes in 2017.

Reyes was eligible for the Rule 5 Draft that year but had a wrist injury that ended his season early.

The Padres gambled that no one would draft the big-hitting outfielder who had reached Double-A.

The gamble paid off.

In 2018, Reyes was fully healed and went on a tear at Triple-A El Paso and was promoted to the big leagues.

Once there full-time, Reyes hit 16 home runs in 87 games to go with a .280 average.

He continued to rake in 2019 for the Padres until he was traded mid-season in a three-way deal with the Cleveland Indians and Cincinnati Reds that netted prospect Taylor Trammell.

Ona, an outfield from Havana, Cuba, was signed by the Padres on July 20, 2016 for $7 million as part of a heralded international signing class that also included Michel Baez and Adrian Morejon.

He’s been beset by injuries so far as a Padre farmhand, having never played more than 107 games in a season.

Ona had been a fixture in the Padres Top 30 prospect list until most recently when he fell off the grid.

Last season, however, Ona was on the verge of a breakthrough when he was promoted to Double-A Amarillo and hit .348 with 5 home runs and 18 RBI in 25 games. He also had an OBP of .417 and OPS of .957.

But his season was cut short by a shoulder injury that required surgery.

Eric Hosmer Jersey

Eric Hosmer will forever be remembered as one of the fundamental elements that came together to produce the Royals World Series teams of 2014 and 2015. He hit in the meat of the order every day and he played above average first base defense. He was a leader on those championship squads. Fans adored him. And, the Royals handled letting Hosmer leave in free agency as well as they possibly could have.

Hosmer’s final season for the Royals was very impressive. He played in every game. He hit 25 homers. His on base-plus-slugging percentage stayed up near .900 almost the entire season. He hit .318. And we still allowed him to walk in free agency. And, even after his excellent 2017 season, that was the proper move.

When Eric Hosmer came up, in 2011, to a big-league club that was losing 91 games and he hit for an OPS of .800, Royals fans were thrilled. He hit almost 50 extra-base hits in less than 130 games as a 21-year-old and finished 3rd in Rookie of the Year voting. He also hit ground balls in half of his at-bats.

Eric Hosmer was comfortable as a big leaguer from the minute he stepped on the infield dirt at Kauffman Stadium. He would become the first baseman for a team that won back to back American League pennants. But, for those of us who thought his 21-year-old season was just a taste of what Hosmer would do, we would ultimately be disappointed. His rookie season will wind up being one of the better seasons of his career.

Some year to year fluctuations need be assumed when trying to forecast offensive numbers for Eric Hosmer. His batting average has been as low as .232 and as high as .318. But a reasonable expectation for a Hosmer season is probably hitting .280 with 20 homers and an OPS around .750. And those are not terrible numbers. They are, however, imminently replaceable for a first baseman.

Ryan O’Hearn came out of the gate in his first season mashing everything and then he came crashing back to Earth this year. But he and Hosmer have remarkably similar numbers over their last 150 games. Compare the slashes of .265/.310/.425/.735 and .216/.304/.440/.744. One guy gets a lot more base hits while the other one walks more and hits more extra-base hits. Their contribution is ultimately comparable. And neither one of those are the numbers of a guy you want playing first base every game.

I do not write this to bash Eric Hosmer, he will always be special to those of us fans to whom he finally helped bring another title. And it is not to celebrate the fact that the Padres got the raw end of that deal. It is to point out that, in the Hosmer decision, the Royals did the right thing. By letting Hosmer go, the Royals did not let sentiment or nostalgia drive their decision-making. We need to keep that in mind when making decisions now.

When we want to bring back Alex Gordon for one more year. Or have Salvador Perez move to first base. Or believing our young pitchers will all develop and be ready to contribute next season. We need to ask ourselves the tough questions. Can Alex still hit well enough play left fielder every day?

Greg Garcia Jersey

With the merry-go-round that is the second base position, Greg Garcia has been a serviceable stopgap for the San Diego Padres. An asset as a starter, a utility player, and off the bench, it feels like the Friars scored when they brought him on board.

Signing Garcia back in November 2018, the San Diego native had spent most of his career with the St. Louis Cardinals. He was drafted in the seventh round of the 2010 MLB draft by the Redbirds and enjoyed a nice career there, batting .248/.351/.348 after his 14-game rookie season.

His first year with the Padres, however, is on pace to be his best one yet. After 70 games, the 2B/3B/SS is batting .263/.347/.403 with a .325 wOBA and 102 wRC+. He’s tied his season-high totals for RBIs (20) and home runs (3), and his .752 OPS is just shy of a career-high.

Sure, those aren’t eye-popping numbers, but he’s provided a breath of fresh air to a relatively unstable and inconsistent position for the Padres. With Luis Urias still in Triple-A El Paso, the Padres have gone with a 2B platoon of Garcia and Ian Kinsler.

So far, Garcia has been the better offensive and defensive option over Kinsler, who’s slashing .217/.275/.370 with eight home runs and 19 RBIs through 74 games. While he’s settling in after a rough start to the year (.133/.209/.241 with 17 strikeouts through April), the two-time Golden Glove winner has been less than stellar during his bout with the Friars.

Defensively, Garcia is considered the league-average 2B with 0 Defensive Runs Saved, and an above-average 2B with a 1.8 UZR. He’s facing a career-low .746 RZR, though, meaning he’s struggled to convert balls hit to his zone into outs.

Take these 2019 defensive stats with a grain of salt, however, as we’re only halfway through the year. Garcia is coming off a 2.0 UZR season with the Cardinals and has a +3 DRS, .848 RZR, and 1.5 UZR in his career.

That said, I’m not writing about Greg Garcia because of his average defense.

No, I’m dedicating this article to him because of his performance in the clutch and in high-leverage situations.

He hits a .263/.370/.447 with runners in scoring position, providing 15 RBIs in 46 plate appearances in the situation. His OBP is at its best (.412) in late and close games, which is when his plate appearance occurs in the seventh inning or later “with the batting team tied, ahead by one, or the tying run at least on deck.”

Perhaps the most impressive is his performance during high-leverage situations, hitting .345/.440/.690 when he has the chance to drastically alter the win probability of the game.

This isn’t just a trend, either. Garcia’s career is peppered with great stats in high-leverage and clutch situations. He has a .333 BA against the shift, a 16.2 BB% with men in scoring position, and his career-OBP is at its best with two outs and RISP. He also has a career .374 OBP as a pinch-hitter.

The Padres probably knew all that, though.

To be fair, Greg also has some offensive weaknesses that lie primarily in his power and averages against left-handed pitchers. Garcia has three homers on the year and has never hit more than that in a season.

Two home runs in 2019 have come against finesse pitchers (those in the “bottom third of the league in strikeouts plus walks”, per Baseball-reference), against whom he has his best slash line.

Conversely, he’s struggled against power pitchers (“top third of the league in strikeouts plus walks”). This is also evident in his K% and BB%, which have trended the wrong way.

Against LHPs, Garcia has averaged .176/.270/.256 vs. .264/.368/.368 against righty’s, which might be why Andy Green chooses to play Kinsler in certain situations. He has around the same (albeit low) average against pitchers of both hands.

Yes, Garcia has his weaknesses like every other player (except you Fernando, you’re perfect). Despite these, he currently gives the Padres the best chance for success at 2B and should absolutely be starting over Kinsler.

He’s got the better bat, slightly better defense, and seems to make something happen when we need it the most. Furthermore, while Kinsler had improved since the beginning of the year, he’s slumping again, going 1-for-17 in his last seven games. Garcia, meanwhile, has kept up the heat this summer, going 5-for-17 for a .294 BA in his last seven games.

Garcia in last 28 days: 17 games, .333/.404/.571, .448 BAbip, 14 hits, seven RBIs.

Austin Allen Jersey

What to do with Austin Allen? The hot-hitting San Diego Padres catching prospect out of Florida Tech is coming off back-to-back big seasons at the plate, a successful Arizona Fall League campaign, and is the 25th-ranked prospect in what many consider to be the top farm system in baseball. Oh yeah, he isn’t even the top-ranked catching prospect in the Padres sytem.

With the Arizona Fall League completed, MLB Pipeline has released a few different pieces looking at some of the top performances and most interesting numbers from the 2018 season, culminating in their All-AFL Team. Receiving the nod at catcher is San Diego’s own, Austin Allen.

Allen and the Peoria Javelinas captured the AFL title a few days ago (with the help from fellow Padres prospects Miguel Diaz, Buddy Reed, and Hudson Potts), with Allen finishing the season with a .263 average, two home runs, and two doubles in 15 games. His biggest contribution at the plate came in the form of his ability to get on base, ending the season with a .358 on-base percentage.

The catching prospect was also included in Mike Rosenbaum’s piece looking at some of the top Statcast data from the AFL (with the caveat that only one of the six AFL fields is equipped with Statcast). Still, Allen recorded the ninth-hardest exit-velocity on a 112.5 mph lineout. Daniel Johnson of the Nationals and Peter Alonso of the Mets topped this list with 116.4 and 116.3 mph exit-velocities, respectively.
What’s next for San Diego Padres catching prospect Austin Allen?

Allen is coming off a 2018 regular season in which he tied his career-high for home runs (22) and doubles (31), recording those numbers in back-to-back seasons with the Lake Elsinore Storm and San Antonio Missions.

In 12 fewer at-bats in Double-A, Allen stuck out 12 fewer times and recorded the same number of hits as he did the previous season in High-A, 131. He upped his batting average to .290 (up seven points) and his OPS to .857 (up eight points).

As expected, the Padres made room to protect Allen and place him on the 40-man roster, ahead of next month’s Rule-5 draft. Now the question becomes, what does Allen’s future hold as a member of the Padres?

As of right now, the organization appears to be content in going into 2019 with Austin Hedges and Francisco Mejia behind the plate, leaving no playing time for Allen there. He did play some first base last season in Double-A, but that position is blocked for the foreseeable future, thanks to Eric Hosmer. But Allen doesn’t want to move from behind the plate and he may not have to.

There isn’t a question as to whether or not Allen can hit a baseball. He can and he does it very well and very hard. The questions have surrounded his defensive abilities. As San Diego Union-Tribune Padres beat writer Kevin Acee pointed out last month in his feature on Allen, the catching prospect has continued to make positive strides in his defensive development and the organization is bullish on his ability to play the position at the major league level.

How many teams can say they have three catchers of the quality the Padres currently possess? As Acee discusses in his latest, AJ Preller doesn’t have much desire to trade away minor league talent that could potentially develop into major league production. In other words, Hedges gets one more chance to show he can hit the ball consistently, Mejia gets a full season to develop in the bigs, and Austin Allen mashes baseballs in El Paso until August/September. Based on current trade discussions and rumors swirling around Padres’ camp, I don’t see Allen going anywhere. However, a big season in AAA could lead to a much different story as the 2019 trade deadline approaches.

Trey Wingenter Jersey

Now, it’s Trey Wingenter.

The right-handed reliever has been placed on the 10-day injured list with a shoulder strain, the latest blow to a bullpen short on arms and long on innings.

“A little tightness in the shoulder, nothing too serious, probably something that needed a few days,” Wingenter said. “Don’t always have a few days to give. So take 10 days, make the most of the rest and be ready to come back strong.”

The 25-year-old said the tightness he has felt for a while peaked in Friday’s appearance, when he allowed a home run to the first batter he faced in the seventh inning of a tie game.

Wingenter has thrown the third-most innings (15 1/3) out of the bullpen behind Craig Stammen (18 1/3) and Kirby Yates (18).

His importance was growing, as his standard appearance was most often a late-and-close situation.

He is next in a line of pieces to go missing, further taxing a bullpen that has thrown 124 innings, 10th most in the majors.

Robert Stock was a hard-throwing, multi-inning bridge with a 2.45 ERA the second half of last season. He’s currently in Triple-A trying to prove he can throw strikes consistently.

Jose Castillo’s 97 mph fastball and wickedly breaking slider were increasingly put into high-leverage situations in 2018. These days, the left-hander spends part of every few afternoons playing catch from about 60 feet, trying to work back from what is being termed a flexor strain without surgery.

Aaron Loup, a left-handed specialist acquired in February, was giving the Padres quality outings (0.00 ERA, five strikeouts in 3 1/3 innings) before he went down early last month with an elbow strain.

Until they get back — along with Miguel Diaz, whose surgically repaired meniscus has progressed to the point he is starting his rehab assignment in Double-A on Sunday — the Padres bullpen is going to have to find a way to patch together effective games in the same way they did most of last season and virtually all of April.

“Everybody is talented,” closer Kirby Yates said Saturday night. “And everyone accepts the workload and knows our job, knows what we have to do on a daily basis.”

Yates has taken the loss the past two games against the Dodgers after entering a tied game in the ninth inning and allowing a run. This his come on the heels of his allowing one run in his first 16 innings of the season, which included his converting all 14 of his save opportunities.

The Padres recalled Phil Maton from Triple-A for the second time in six days. Maton began the season with the Padres, was optioned on April 3, recalled April 14, optioned April 21 and recalled Tuesday before being optioned Wednesday.

Don’t worry Cal Quantrill, we see you.

While the San Diego Padres‘ pitching spotlight has shined mostly on teammate Chris Paddack, the Friars have another right-handed thrower who’s enjoying a fine rookie season.

With a 6-3 record, Quantrill boasts a stat line of a 3.23 ERA, 1.115 WHIP, and 61 strikeouts through 75.1 innings pitched. Those are the best of his three-year career in the Padres’ system and he’s only getting better.

With a strong delivery, good command, and ice in his veins, Cal is quickly becoming a fan favorite as he makes his case for joining San Diego’s coveted 2020 rotation.

So, how did the 24-year-old Canadian end up in southern California?
Upbringing

The rookie can trace his baseball roots to his father, Paul Quantrill, a former All-Star and 14-year veteran reliever. He played most of his career with the Toronto Blue Jays but he enjoyed a short stint with the San Diego Padres in 2005.

Paul spent his last year in Canada as an All-Star pitcher in 2001, leading all American League pitchers with 80 games played. He followed up with three more league-leading seasons for games pitched, two of those being the most in all of major league baseball.

That’s right, Fernando Tatis Jr. and Vladimir Guerrero Jr. aren’t the only rookie sons of former MLBers tearing up the league.

Born in Port Hope, Ontario, young Cal Quantrill was a multi-sport athlete who excelled at baseball, hockey, and volleyball at Trinity College School.

His high school stats are littered with awards and achievements: MVP in 2011, 2012, and 2013; three-time member of Team Canada 18-U; played in two world championships and a world qualifier in Seoul, Taichung, and Cartagena; threw a perfect game as a senior in his team’s home opener; and much more.

At 18 years old, Cal was drafted by the New York Yankees in the 2013 MLB draft, though he didn’t sign and instead chose to attend college at Stanford University. There, he became their first freshman pitcher to start on opening day since Mike Mussina in 1998. His freshman year featured a 7-5 record, 2.68 ERA, and 98 strikeouts through 18 games.

He followed up with a strong start to his sophomore year going 2-0 with a 1.93 ERA and 20 strikeouts in three games. Unfortunately, his season was cut short due to injury and he underwent Tommy John Surgery that spring, officially ending his college baseball career.

Minors

Heading into the 2016 MLB draft, Cal was ranked as the number 22 prospect in all of baseball. The San Diego Padres saw an opportunity and drafted him in the first round with the eighth overall pick; he quickly signed with the Friars and played five games with the Arizona Padres.

Quantrill blazed through San Diego’s minor league system, pitching five games with the Tri-City Dust Devils before being promoted to the Fort Wayne TinCaps. He was playing in his first full-season affiliate by the end of August 2016, only two months after being drafted.

Nothing from his minor league career indicated he’d be as effective as he is today. Quantrill finished 2016 with an 0-5 record and 5.11 ERA; he then began 2017 1-5 with the Padres’ former AA affiliate, the San Antonio Missions.

That’s when things took off.

He finished out the 2017 season with the Lake Elsinore Storm, posting a 6-5 record, 3.67 ERA and an impressive 76 strikeouts through 73.2 innings pitched. His performance earned him a trip to the Padres’ 2018 spring training, but he didn’t make the opening day roster.

Instead, he rejoined the Missions before being promoted to the Triple-A El Paso Chihuahuas, where he went 3-1 with a 3.48 ERA to end the 2018 season.

The Friars once again invited Cal Quantrill to spring training, and yet again he didn’t make the starting roster. He went on to pitch 16 Triple-A games for El Paso, finishing his 2019 minor league season with a 4-2 record, 4.54 ERA, and 1.40 WHIP.

The Padres selected his contract and brought him up to the majors in May 2019, where he made his MLB debut against the Atlanta Braves. He had a so-so outing, tossing 5.2 innings and surrendering two runs off six hits.

Luis Perdomo Jersey

2 years ago, Luis Perdomo looked like he would stay in the starting rotation for years to come. At times, he was simply dominant. Of course there were times when the wheels would come off, but that’s normal of a rule 5 trial by fire pitcher in his early 20’s.

2018 came along and things got much, much worse. He couldn’t find the plate, and when he did he got shelled. Demoted to AAA, he spent time becoming a more mature student of the game. He pitched well as a reliever during his September call up.

Fast forward to today and Luis Perdomo is suddenly one of the most reliable arms out of the bullpen. In fact, he’s unique in the sense that he can give you length if necessary. In 27 IP he has a 2.67 ERA. Most impressive is his 1.04 WHIP. The man who was always out of control is no longer a thrower, but a pitcher.

His 2 worst outings were against Toronto and Atlanta. He gave up 7 ER in 4 IP. You take out those 2 games, he’s given up just 1 ER in 23 IP. 0.43 ERA. In other words, he’s been dominant.

There’s been a few subtle changes that are worth noting. 1st, his slider. The graph below, courtesy of fangraphs, shows that Perdomo has thrown his Slider more than anytime in his career. He’s thrown it 35.6% of the time vs. 26.5% last year. You can thank the minor league development staff for that. They’ve openly forced players to throw their slider more, and it’s really helped Perdomo. Opponents are hitting just .158 when he throws it. It’s his top “put away” pitch.

2nd, He’s all but abandoned his Splitter. Good thing too, it’s terrible.

Lastly, he’s simply locating his primary pitch, a sinker, incredibly well. He’s cut down dramatically on his walks, and no longer trying to strike everyone out. He’s a true sinkerball that relies on location over power. He’s maturing and trusting his stuff.

Luis Perdomo 3.0 looks to be here to stay. A reliable middle innings arm that can be extended. Sounds good to me.

No longer will Padre fans hold their breath and say “Perdo…NOOOO!!” when this version trots out to the mound.

The Padres #5 ranked prospect per MLB.com (#34 overall) is angling to get the nod on Opening Day, per MLB.com’s AJ Cassavell. Chris Paddack threw four scoreless innings, which included a stretch in which he struck out five consecutive Oakland A’s batters in his most recent spring start. Last season, Paddack made seven starts in Double-A after cruising through High-A, where he notched an eye-popping 14.3 K/9 versus 0.7 BB/9 in 52 1/3 innings. Double-A didn’t slow him much, going 3-2 with a 1.91 ERA in 7 starts, 8.8 K/9 to 1.0 BB/9. Still, from Double-A to an Opening Day start would be quite the jump for the 23-year-old, just a year removed from missing all of 2017 to Tommy John surgery. The competition is fairly wide open, however, as the Padres, by design, brought very little in the way of established talent to camp. Since the offseason departures of veterans Clayton Richard (traded to Blue Jays) and Tyson Ross (signed with Tigers), Robbie Erlin boasts the most experience in the group, and he’s not even a lock to make the rotation. Fellow southpaws Joey Lucchesi and Eric Lauer each have a shot to get the Opening Day nod, as well. Let’s check in on the Rangers’ and Cubs’ camps as teams begin to whittle their spring rosters…

The Rangers culled their number of players in camp to 60. Pitchers Taylor Guerrieri, Michael Tonkin, Miguel Del Pozo and Brady Feigl were all assigned to minor league camp, per the Rangers’ executive VP of communications John Blake (via Twitter). Guerrieri, 26, joined the Rangers after making his major league debut last season with the Blue Jays. A former first round pick of the Rays, he was a starter in the minor leagues until missing most of the 2017 season due to injury. Toronto claimed him off waivers before last season, where started 7 games in Triple-A before appearing 9 times out of the Blue Jays pen, pitching to a 5.02 FIP in a small-sample 9 2/3 big league innings. Tonkin, 29, appeared in parts of five seasons for the Twins from 2013 to 2017 with a 4.57 FIP across 141 games. Del Pozo, 26, reached as far as Double-A in the Marlins system before joining the Rangers as a non-roster invitee. While Feigl, 28, is back in the Rangers system where he has pitched for the past two seasons.

The Cubs made a number of roster moves today, with promising righties Adbert Alzolay and Jen-Ho Tseng being optioned to Triple-A, while Justin Steele and Oscar De La Cruz were sent to Double-A, per the Athletic’s Patrick Mooney (Twitter links). Also on the move, Duncan Robinson, Ian Clarkin, Colin Rea, Ian Rice, Charcer Burks and Jacob Hannemann are being moved to minor league camp (Twitter link). Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune (via Twitter) adds Craig Brooks, Alberto Baldonado and Evan Marzilli to the list of players headed to minor league camp. The Cubs spring roster has now been cut to 54.

Rob Scahill, meanwhile, was released outright by the Cubs, per Mooney (via Twitter). Scahill has pitched at the big league level for parts of seven seasons running, topping out at 31 appearances in 2016 spread between Milwaukee and Pittsburgh. In total, the 32-year-old boasts a career 3.95 ERA (4.67 FIP) in 124 games for Rockies, Pirates, Brewers and White Sox.

The Padres announced that they’ve designated right-hander Pedro Avila for assignment. His exit will make room for the signing of left-hander Drew Pomeranz, whose deal is now official.

The 22-year-old Avila made his major league debut in 2019, throwing 5 1/3 innings of one-run ball in a start against the Diamondbacks in April, but that’s his only MLB appearance to date. He also combined for just 24 innings among three minor league levels this past season, and saw his year come to an early end in late August when he underwent Tommy John surgery. As a result, Avila won’t factor in much (if at all) in the majors or minors next season.

Prior to his surgery, Avila was considered a promising prospect for the Padres, as FanGraphs ranked him 28th in a loaded San Diego farm system back in May. But Avila’s pro experience has largely been limited to High-A ball, where he has put up a 4.45 ERA with 10.1 K/9 and 3.7 BB/9 in 174 innings.
