San Diego Padres Minors Roster Projections: San Antonio Missions
The next team we will look at in the San Diego Padres minor league roster projection series is the Double-A San Antonio Missions of the Texas league.
The San Diego Padres’ Double-A affiliate, the San Antonio Missions, is coming off of having the best regular-season record in the league and a trip into the semi-finals of the Texas League playoffs.
This team was the opposite of the Lake Elsinore Storm, the team from my earlier article, who came out swinging in the first half but cooled down in the second.
They too had the roster turnover the Storm shared, just not as many injuries. They also shared the promotional train as their farm system little brother but received more players than they sent out.
At one point last season I would have thought that there was no way they don’t win the Texas League title. But, naturally, that’s why they play the games now, isn’t it?

If this team doesn’t complete what they started last season or at least make it to the championship series, It will be a shock. The starting pitching rotation here is just as talented as the rotation in Lake Elsinore, perhaps even more.
Below you will also see the first of my big surprises that will be sure to kick up some controversy.
