Baseball America, a publication that covers Major League Baseball and Minor League Baseball, ranks the San Diego Padres farm system as No. 3 out of all 30 MLB farm systems.
The El Paso Chihuahuas are the Triple-A affiliate of the San Diego Padres.
Below is what Baseball America wrote about the San Diego Padres prospects.
RHP Matt Wisler (5 TL) • RHP Keyvius Sampson (7 TL) • LHP Max Fried (8 MWL) • C Austin Hedges (5 CAL) • RHP Zach Eflin (11 MWL)
San Diego boasts one of the top lefthanders (Fried) and catchers in the minors (Hedges), and beyond the top five they also have SS Jace Peterson (8 CAL) and RHP Joe Ross (14 MWL). They might have had a better showing if they hadn’t lost RHP Casey Kelly and OF Rymer Liriano to Tommy John surgery in the spring.
