The Padres saw how Darnell, 24, could play in 2009 when he was named by the team as the top offensive player in the organization. He had the fourth-best on-base percentage in the Minor Leagues (.424) between stops that season with Class A Fort Wayne and Lake Elsinore.

In his first full season, 2009, he was named the Class A Reliever of the Year after saving 33 games and helping Fort Wayne win the Midwest League title. He moved up to the hitting-friendly California League and saved 41 more while posting a 2.47 ERA and a .207 batting average against. That’s 74 saves over two years, more than any other Minor League reliever in the same time span and No. 6 among all professional closers, as I wrote in this story on Brach while he was raising his profile in the Arizona Fall League.
