In our next look at the San Diego Padres organizational roster projections, we will take a look at the Low-A Fort Wayne Tin Caps of the Midwest League.
Coming off of what could only be described as a Jekyll-and-Hyde season, the San Diego Padres’ Single-A (Low) affiliate, the Fort Wayne Tin Caps almost claimed a Midwest league title in 2017. This was despite having an overall losing record for the year.
The young Tin Caps started their season off slow in a poor first half (getting their feet wet) before going on a second-half tear that put them into the Midwest League championship series.
How could they not.?There was and is, way too much talent on their roster to not be good. Not with names like Fernando Tatis Jr., Baez, Morejon, Pedro Avila, Hudson Potts, Jorge Ona, and Buddy Reed in the mix.
