We take a look at which of the San Diego Padres non-roster invitees have the best chance to make the Opening Day roster out of Spring Training.

It was announced on Thursday that the San Diego Padres have invited 27 players who are not on the team’s current 40-man roster to Spring Training.

That group of 27 is obviously hilighted by pitching prospects MacKenzie Gore and Luis Patino. But altogether, eight of San Diego’s top 10 prospects were invited.

At the very least we should get a good look at the system’s top prospects against Major League talent in Spring Training.

Here is the list of the 27 non-roster invitees who are not on the 40-man roster.

Top 30 prospects: Gore (LHP), Patino (RHP), Taylor Trammell (OF), Luis Campusano (C), Owen Miller (INF), Hudson Potts (3B), Reggie Lawson (RHP), Pedro Avila (RHP).


Others: Webster Rivas (C), Charlie Valerio (C), Ivan Castillo (INF), Seth Mejias-Brean (INF), Esteban Quiroz (INF), Jason Vosler (INF), Abraham Almonte (OF), Michael Gettys (OF), Lake Bachar (RHP), Kyle Barraclough (RHP), Miguel Diaz (RHP), Jerad Eickhoff (RHP), Chih-Wei Hu (RHP), Chase Johnson (RHP), Evan Miller (RHP), Travis Radke (LHP), Dauris Valdez (RHP), Steven Wilson (RHP), Jimmy Yacabonis (RHP).


In case you want to catch-up on some of these guys, here are some recent articles we’ve written about a few of them.

Barraclough – here.

Trammell – here

Gore – here

Patino – here

Campusano – here

Quiroz – here


For any of these players to make the Opening Day roster they’d have to replace someone currently on the Padres 40-man roster, which is already pretty tight.

But let’s look at a few that have a shot at making that happen.
