After picking 4 position players to start the draft, the Padres grabbed 7 arms in a row. Joshua Mears, Logan Driscoll, and Hudson Head were all considered reaches to a certain degree. Given the draft history of AJ Preller it’s tough to question anything at this point. Time will tell, but they’re certainly adding to their hot talent lava.
