Baseball America came out with their Top MLB Prospects hot sheet today, featuring a few Padres. Most notable was Mackenzie Gore, fresh off the announcement that he’ll be among 3 prospects representing the Padres in the Futures game. Gore has 101 K’s in 72.1 IP while walking just 17. To say A ball hitters are overmatched would be the understatement of the year. Luis Patino and Adrian Morejon are the other 2 that will be featured on July 7th to kick off all-star week.

“2. MacKenzie Gore, LHP, Padres
Team: High Class A Lake Elsinore (Padres)
Why He’s Here: 1-0, 0.00, 6.2 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 9 SO, 1 BB, 0 HR
The Scoop: Gore was one of three Padres prospects named to the upcoming Futures Game, and he pitched like it this week. His outing on June 26 was his second consecutive with nine strikeouts, and his fifth start with at least that many. He’s one of the best pitching prospects in the minors, and he appears ready to shine on All-Star Sunday. (JN)”
