Josh Naylor Demoted To Alternate Site

San Diego Padres outfielder Josh Naylor was optioned to the teams alternate site Thursday. Taking a backseat in platoon duties to Edward Olivares and Abraham Almonte, the 23-year-old had gotten limited run, collecting three hits in just 14 plate appearances. Weak on defense and the Friars having plenty of DH options, Naylor was sacrificed along with starter Joey Lucchesi as rosters were cut to 28. Naylor may have another opportunity if injuries hit but his long-term viability in San Diego is looking shaky.

Josh Naylor Getting Reps At First Base

San Diego Padres outfielder Josh Naylor is seeing action at first base early in summer camp. Expected to compete for at-bats with outfielders Wil Myers and Franchy Cordero, reps at first could improve his playing prospects. Naylor debuted with a modest 89 wRC+ in 2019, launching eight homers in 279 plate appearances. Possessing strong plate discipline, the 23-year-old needs to tap into more power to overcome his defensive deficiencies. Currently drafted outside the top-700, Naylor isnt a factor in standard leagues but could have waiver-wire appeal during the season if he performs.

Josh Naylor Expected To Play Friday

San Diego Padres outfielder Josh Naylor (neck) took part in the team's full workout on Thursday and is expected to be in the Cactus League lineup on Friday night, barring a setback. Naylor has been fighting through a minor neck strain, but he should be fine for the start of the regular season. The 22-year-old Canadian could find it tough to crack San Diego's crowded outfield in 2020, so he'll be mostly a bench bat or could see more time in the minor leagues. He hit .249/.315/.403 with eight home runs and 32 RBI in his first 253 major league at-bats last season. Unless Naylor comes into regular playing time, he'll mostly just be a bench stash in NL-only leagues.
