Potential Rule 5 Draft Target: Jordan Sheffield

Jordan Sheffield is a guy I’ve seen throw in Double-A.  He has the same question mark a lot of potential Rule 5 Draft targets do.  Is he going to throw enough strikes to stick in the big leagues? Sheffield throws hard.  He is a 93 to 96 guy that can occasionally bump it up even…

Trade Target: Michel Baez

It will take a a prospect or two of quality and some international slot money to get Baez, but he is not an unreal target.  The Padres system is incredibly deep.  At the MLB level they have Paddock, Richards, Lamet, Lucchesi, and Lauer listed as starters with Quantrill and Bolanos listed as their rotation depth. …

Tillo has been…

Trade Target: Edwin Rios
