With less than one week till opening day let’s finish off our roster projections for the San Diego Padres minor league affiliates. Let’s look at the 25-man for the Double-A Amarillo Sod Poodles of the Texas league.
Now that the San Antonio Franchise has moved on to bigger and better things this season with their move to the Triple-A circuit, the San Diego Padres were in search of a new Double-A squad. They found an old friend to dance the dose-do with in a new beginning for baseball in Amarillo.
However, there is some familiarity between the San Diego Padres franchise and Amarillo, with the city before being a minor league affiliate of the team from the 1976-1982 seasons.
Welcome back to the Friar family Amarillo.
With the formal introductions taken care of, shall we meet the roster for our new baby brother?
With star potential up and down this roster, Amarillo’s first summer back should make for some fun times for the team and city.
This roster could have players promoted from Lake Elsinore, players returning from last year’s team in San Antonio and possibly a few players brought back from Triple-A El Paso.
Regardless of the makeup of this team, it’s seriously stacked with talent as you will soon see.
Let’s meet the old but new San Diego Padres 2019 Texas League Double-A franchise the Amarillo Sod Poodles.
Batting Order & Lineup:
- Buddy Reed-LF
- Owen Miller-2B
- Edward Olivares-CF

That is the projected 25-Man roster for the San Diego Padres new Double-A team the Amarillo Sod Poodles.
So far this has been the hardest roster in the series to project. With late spring training signings, cuts/releases, and injuries it took some creative maneuvering to fill this roster and the two remaining in the series.
My hope is that this roster and the two remaining meet with your approval Friar Faithful.
Please leave any thoughts, opinions, and/or comments on what your Amarillo Sod Poodles projected 25-man roster would look like.
