Shielded from Rule 5 draft
3BTampa Bay Rays
November 20, 2019
Not only did the Rays protect Padlo from the Rule 5 draft, but they designated Matt Duffy for assignment, largely because Padlo looks like the better option at third base. He hit .290/.400/.595 with nine home runs in 40 games at Triple-A. Padlo strikes out a lot (29.7 K%), but he can handle the hot corner and he has legitimate power and on-base skills. He probably won't break camp on the 25-man roster, but should be heard from at some point in 2020.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Padlo smacked a career-best 16 homers and tallied 41 extra-base hits overall as part of a .229/.358/.413 line over 508 plate appearances at Low-A Bowling Green in 2016, after arriving in the Rays organization from the Rockies system as part of the Corey Dickerson trade. He also posted the second-highest stolen base total of his career (14) but saw regression in other categories. His contact rate dropped to 68 percent, the second consecutive season he saw a decline in that category, while his strikeout rate saw a slight bump to 26.4 percent. However, Padlo profiles as a multi-tool prospect who still has ample room for development at only 20 years of age. He makes for a solid dynasty prospect for his potential production in the categories of extra-base hits, homers, RBI and stolen bases.
After a strong showing in rookie ball in 2014, Padlo was perhaps even more impressive in a more extended run with short-season Boise last year. A fifth-round pick two years ago out of high school, Padlo slashed .294/.404/.502 with nine home runs and 33 steals (in 38 attempts) in 308 plate appearances in the Northwest League. Initially he was given an aggressive assignment to Low-A Asheville to start the year, but after a mediocre 27 games he was sent to short-season ball, where he was still almost three years younger than the average player in the league. Even when he was struggling at Low-A, he still sported a 14.1 percent walk rate, so it seems likely that Padlo will be much more successful after presumably heading back to Low-A at the outset of the 2016 season. His prospect stock took a minor dip during the offseason because of a trade from Colorado to Tampa Bay, but he remains a top-200 prospect for dynasty leagues.
