Ona spent the 2017-2019 seasons, Ona spent time with the Fort Wayne TinCaps (‘17), Lake Elsinore Storm (‘18), and the Amarillo Sod Poodles (‘19). In his lone season with the TinCaps, Ona was named a mid-season All-Star. In 25 games with Amarillo, Ona slashed .348/.417/.583 with an OPS of .983.
At 6’0 and 235 pounds, Ona is stoutly built with surprising athleticism for his size. While he wasn’t all that flashy in his limited time in 2020, he’s a big hit waiting to happen.
Ona joined Luis Campusano as the first pair of Padres teammates to homer for their first Major League hits within a week of each other.
