3. Ty France
Ty France signed with the Padres after being selected in the 34th round of the 2015 MLB Draft. The local kid from San Diego State decided to begin his professional career a year early.
He accumulated a .337/.432/.473 slash line with 14 home runs and 130 RBI in three seasons on campus.
Those numbers aren’t eye-popping by any means, which is odd that he signed. However, his power numbers have sky-rocketed within the last year. In 76 games for Triple-A last season, France smacked 27 bombs and drove in 89 runs.
With the potential inclusion of the DH this year, is it time to include France into the conversation for regular playing time?
