San Diego Padres: Offseason infield predictions
In our next version of the San Diego Padres offseason analysis, we look at our infield predictions throughout the organization.
Just as we gave our predictions for the starting pitching, this exercise will look to do the same for the infield. It will contain my infield predictions from the big league club all the way through the short season team in Tri-City.
And like the pitching, it will consist of only players who are now in the organization. No guesses at free agent signings or possible trade scenarios.
This version of infield predictions will again show the abundant depth in the organization. So many options and too many players to choose from.
So let’s dive right in Friar Faithful and try our version of San Diego Padre off-season infield predictions. It will also include two honorable mentions at every level as well.
San Diego Padres:
AAA El Paso Chihuahuas:
AA San Antonio Missions:
SS- Fernando Tatis Jr.
A+ Lake Elsinore Storm:
C-Marcus Green Jr.
A- Fort Wayne Tin Caps:
C-Marcus Greene Jr.
Tri-City Dust Devils:

This list was very hard to make up. With so much depth in the organization, there are definitely players being left off just for the simple fact of there not being enough room to add them.
Since two articles on my predictions are now complete, one for the starting pitching, and the second on my starting infielders, fans can see and feel the hope for our future Friars of seeing many post seasons in the next few seasons on the major league side alone.
All of the above mentioned minor league systems have a very good chance at making multiple postseason berths as well. Let’s just hope they develop these players to make those postseason runs while remaining in the Friar family.
