Dinelson Lamet Won't Be Coddled In 2020

San Diego Padres starter Dinelson Lamet should have no workload limitations this season. The 27-year-old former prospect underwent Tommy John surgery in 2018 and returned last year to toss 73 frames across 14 starts. After shaking the rust, Lamet closed the season strong, posting a 3.60 ERA and electric 13.5 K/9 in his final nine starts. A lock for the Friars rotation, general manager A.J. Preller firmly believes Lamet has the capacity to surpass 150 innings in 2020. A two-pitch whiff guru with a career 31 percent strikeout rate, Lamet has an opportunity to break out if he stays healthy and further develops his repertoire. With a current ADP of 125, Lamet is a reasonable investment as an SP3/4.

Michel Baez Ready To Start Despite Long Odds

San Diego Padres pitcher Michel Baez is building up as a starter this spring training. Amongst a crowded group, Baez is likely seventh in line for the rotation behind Cal Quantrill, but the Friars believe he fits the bill. The 24-year-old prospect debuted in 2019 to a 3.03 ERA (4.36 FIP) and 8.5 K/9 in 29 2/3 innings. Utilized as a reliever, Baez capitalized on his strong fastball-changeup combination but recognizes the need to develop a third pitch. After working on a slider this winter, hes ready to prove himself. Baez is fine with a potential relief role, but its conceivable hell draw a few starts if the Padres stretch out their rotation this season. With an ADP of 747, Baez is a deep-league options to anchor strikeouts and ratios, but hes still a way off from universal fantasy relevance.

Franchy Cordero Destined For Platoon Role

It is increasingly likely that San Diego Padres outfielder Franchy Cordero will be part of a platoon in 2020. Even if Cordero outperforms projected starting center fielder Trent Grisham in spring training, MLB.coms AJ Cassavell still believes he wont play every day. The 25-year-old lefty owns a career .573 OPS against southpaws, paving the possibility for a timeshare with Wil Myers or Juan Lagares. Were Grisham to earn the starting gig in center, Corderos role in right field would also be a platoon scenario. Cordero has been ravaged by injuries since 2018, playing in only 49 big league games the past two seasons. If he can capitalize on his upside, Cordero should still garner fantasy buzz as the strong side of an outfield committee in deeper leagues.

MacKenzie Gore Facing Steep Climb To Crack Roster

San Diego Padres pitching prospect MacKenzie Gore is working out in big league camp this spring but holds long odds to crack the Opening Day roster. Last years MLB Pipeline Pitcher of the Year and the top pitching prospect in baseball annihilated the minors in 2019, tallying a 1.69 ERA, 0.83 WHIP and 12.0 K/9 in 101 innings across High-A and Double-A. However, the Padres rotation seems rigid entering March, with four spots likely secured and at least four arms vying for the final slot. While the 20-year-olds ceiling is sky-high, the Friars have the luxury to be prudent with his development. But with a stellar spring training, Gore may be impossible to deny. Currently slotting just outside the top-100 pitchers in fantasy, Gore is someone to watch in all formats.

Fernando Tatis Jr. Won't Be Limited In Spring Training

San Diego Padres manager Jayce Tingler said that all the medical reports on shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. (back) were positive and he won't have physical limitations during spring training. "He's been out here early, he's swung the bat, he's running, he's playing defense, so we do not expect any limitations," the manager said. Tatis reported to camp early. Tingler also said he has no plans to move Tatis to center field after the club traded Manuel Margot to the Rays. Tatis proved in his rookie season that he was worth all the hype, as he displayed five tools, but he played in just 84 games last year due to injuries. Despite the missed time, he was a Rookie of the Year candidate and hit .317 with 22 home runs, 53 RBI, 16 stolen bases and a .590 slugging percentage. Talents like this don't come around too often, so he'll come off the board within the first couple of rounds in fantasy drafts.
