1. Ty France
Where does Ty France fit long-term with the Padres? Unless a trade is made, he’s likely to garner minimal playing time. He was slotted in at first base on Saturday but had a tumultuous time fielding the ball. He was eventually replaced by Josh Naylor in the eighth inning in the Padres blowout loss.
The 26-year-old went 2-for-5 in the Padres 12-7 victory in San Francisco last week, but he’s done little to convince regular playing time.
2. Abraham Almonte
Abraham Almonte‘s story is a personal favorite, and I was happy to see him get promoted to the team’s player pool. However, the Padres already have a plethora of players in the outfield that need regular playing. He made his first start against the Dodgers on Monday night, going 1-for-3 with a walk.
He got the nod again on Tuesday night, in the DH role. But with Pham-Grisham-Myers from left to right in the outfield, and Edward Olivares needing time as well, Almonte is a good bet to be cut.
