Who else to watch
While he has virtually no shot at him making the team out of Spring, the player I may be keeping my eyes on the most is Taylor Trammell.
I’ve let it known before that I don’t view him as an elite prospect as some other Padres fans do. But that doesn’t mean I don’t see the potential.
This Spring, and the 2020 season as a whole, will go a long way in telling us just what the ceiling could be for Trammell.
And it’s not out of the question that he could make his debut sometime this season.
Seeing Campusano behind the plate will be huge as well. After currently being ranked as the fourth best catching prospect in baseball, I want to see if perhaps he is the catcher of the future for the Padres.
We all know what Profar is capable of and we’re hoping he has a bounce-back season before becoming a free agent.
But I’ve also bought into the hype of Cronenworth and can’t wait to see what he can do.
Those four (and really three because Profar is gone after this season) could determine who is the second baseman of the future for the Padres.
Hopefully they all get plenty of at-bats this Spring so we can get a good look at them.
And of course the outfield battle will be fun to watch with six-to-eight guys who are battling for a roster spot.
Others could be added in the coming month, but which of these non-roster invitees do you think has the best chance of earning a roster spot this Spring? Let us know in the comments below.
