There is still the month of September left for the San Diego Padres, but it’s looking like it’s going to be a season full of major disappointment. When breaking down what went wrong, you can look at many different factors.

There were some additions to the 2023 roster last offseason with Xander Bogaerts being the big fish that was landed by GM A.J. Preller when he signed the former Boston Red Sox shortstop to an 11-year, $280 million contract.

He was just the latest addition to a roster with star power and underachieved as a whole. You have to think that with the way this season went, there are going to be changes coming this offseason for San Diego with an eye toward turning things around next season. Despite roster turnover during the season, there are a lot of questions facing Preller this offseason as to the makeup of his roster. 

San Diego Padres had a mix of players who did work out and some who didn’t.

It was a mixture of some good and some bad for Preller this season. Here a two players who didn’t work out with the San Diego Padres this season and two who did.
