The Dominican Summer League Padres open the season without a single pitcher that throws left-handed. In fact, no position player is left-handed either. They do, however, have some interesting names to keep an eye on.
The Padres lucked into a few names that they expect to make some noise this year. Catcher Jacob Beltre is one of those headliners, signed for next to nothing when he originally commanded well into the six-figures. Outfielders Yoan Alcantara and Fabel Filpo will garner a lot of attention - both are athletic with live bats.
The Padres are also excited to see if several veterans can progress, including Ariel Familia and Jairo Gomes.
