Padres Minor League Roundup For August 24th

3 of 4

Mandatory Credit:

Single-A: Lake Elsinore Storm (72-61)

Last night the Lake Elsinore Storm scored 8 runs to defeat the Bakersfield Blaze 8-2. Starter Bryan Rodriguez earned a quality start pitching 6 strong innings allow 2 runs on 6 hits and 1 walk while striking out 2. Rodriguez record on the season now sits at 8-8 with a 4.12 ERA.

Top prospect Jose Rondon had a multi-hit game going 2-for-4 with a double and 2 RBI on the night. Rondon owns a triple slash line of .318/.368/.403 on the season across all levels, while most of his at-bats have come at the Advanced Single-A level split between the Angels and Padres systems. Rondon was the prized player that came to the Padres via the Houston Street trade while he still needs a few seasons of time in the minors before getting a cup of coffee in the Majors. His bat has remained stroing since the trade and should be the Padres shortstop of the future; he could arrive to the majors as early as the 2016 season if his bat continues to progress and he doesn’t have any major slumps.
