With opening day a mere hours away the San Diego Padres announced their Opening Day, 25-man roster yesterday.
The players chosen for the San Diego Padres will also present a domino effect for the fourth team in our roster projection series, the El Paso Chihuahuas. After finalizing the big league roster the Chihuahuas can then assemble their own 25-man team.
A lot of the names you will see will sound familiar from spring training, and there will no doubt be a few surprises. Just today alone the Padres claimed Socrates Brito off of waivers from the Arizona Diamondbacks creating said effect. His arrival means more shuffling.
This is one reason I’ve waited so long to release not only El Paso’s but the San Diego Padres roster too. Plus we already know of a few players who were question marks being told they’ve made the squad.
Let’s get to meet the San Diego Padres triple-AAA affiliate the El Paso Chihuahuas.
Batting order & Lineup:
- Luis Urias-2B
- Josh Naylor-LF
- Alex Dickerson-RF
- Franchy Cordero-CF
- Ty France-1B
- Austin Allen-C
- Jason Vosler-3B
- Javy Guerra-SS
** Luis Perdomo-RH (Spot starter/Long man
- MR-Kaz Makita-RH
- MR-Kyle McGrath-LH
- MR-Sammy Solis-LH
- SU-Phil Maton-RH
- SU-Brad Wieck-LH
- CL-Andres Munoz-RH
And there you have it Friar Faithful. The El Paso Chihuahuas projected 25-man roster.
When looking back at the minor league side of these roster projections, there is obvious depth within the San Diego Padres system.
There are four to five names that were left off of this and previous lists just because there wasn’t enough room to fit them in.
Too much depth is never a bad thing, and you never see the same 25-man roster on any team. This was a fun exercise however, and if these rosters are close to being correct it should make for a very fun minor league season for the Friars and it’s affiliates.
Please leave any thoughts, comments, and opinions on what your El Paso Chihuahuas 25-man roster would look like.
