Other Padres to Consider in Fantasy Baseball Draft

Dinelson Lamet and Garrett Richards: Both of these are late-round picks that could have huge upside.

Lamet went in the 13th round of my draft, which was actually higher than I thought he would go. And I took Richards in the last round of our draft because when healthy he’s been a top of the rotation guy.

So if you’re in need of starting pitching late in the draft and looking for an arm with upside, I’d certainly target these two.

Francisco Mejia: Certainly in fantasy baseball defense doesn’t matter, and that makes Mejia a viable option to be your starting catcher. We all think he’ll hit, and he’s probably someone you can get in the last few rounds of your draft if you missed out on a catcher earlier in the draft.

Emilio Pagan, Drew Pomeranz, and Craig Stammen: Again, depending on how your league values relief pitchers, the Padres have a number of guys you could target.

These are three I would certainly put on your list to pick up late in the draft.
