The Padres went with a very safe pick here, I don’t necessarily see him with a high ceiling in the pros. At best the Padres get a Michael Young type player, someone who will hit singles but do it on a consistent level. Spangenberg hits left and had has played both short and second base. The utility factor will help him climb the minor league system quickly. Don’t expect him to be an All-Star and I think Padres fans will be satisfied with what they picked up.
