Padres 2017 draft: Signed, Sealed, & Delivered

The draftees have been signed, plus a few more undrafted free agents. Let’s see what they’ve been up to.

MLB Draft 2016: Day Three open thread

The draft concludes today with rounds 11-40.

Padres select SE Missouri St SP Joseph Lucchesi 114th overall

Padres use their 4th round pick on a college southpaw strikeout specialist.

Padres select HS P Mason Thompson 85th overall

The first select of day two goes to a high school right hander recovery from Tommy John surgery. Certainly a higher than normal upside pick in the third round from the Friars.

Padres select HS P Reggie Lawson 71st overall

The Padres choose a high upside high school arm from California to wrap up day one of the draft.

Padres select Florida OF Buddy Reed 48th overall

With their second round pick, the Padres selected a college OF with maybe something in common with former Padre Will Venable.

Padres select Kent State SP Eric Lauer 25th Overall

The Friars used the compensation pick they received for losing Ian Kennedy to draft another pitcher.

Padres select HS SS Hudson Sanchez 24th overall

With their 2nd pick in the draft, the Padres go with a young up-the-middle player. The pick was awarded to Padres as compensation for losing Justin Upton in free agency.

Padres select Stanford SP Cal Quantrill 8th overall

The Friars take a son of a major leaguer who is recovering from Tommy John surgery.
