Nix (2-4) allowed six earned runs on six hits and no walks while striking out two across 2.1 innings to take the loss Saturday against the Dodgers.
ANALYSIS
Nix's outing immediately got off to a shaky start, as he was taken deep for a leadoff homer by Joc Pederson. Things didn't get much better for him as the game went on, as he gave up three doubles and a three-run homer in the third inning prior to getting yanked. He now has a 6.81 ERA and 1.49 WHIP across 38.1 innings at the major-league level.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
While Nix does not stand out in a loaded Padres system -- and probably won't even stand out in what will be a historically stacked High-A Lake Elsinore rotation in 2017 -- dynasty league owners need to at least be aware of him heading into his age-21 season. A prep righty who was given an over-slot bonus in the third round of the 2015 draft, Nix boasts a fastball that sits in the mid-90s, and his curveball projects to be at least above average. The development of his changeup will be critical, as he needs something to neutralize lefties, but he is making strides in that department, striking out 53 over 54.1 innings against southpaws last year. At 6-foot-4, 220 pounds, he has an ideal starter's frame, and he has demonstrated advanced control for his age (4.5 percent walk rate). Nix may not be able to match the upside of rotation mates Anderson Espinoza and Cal Quantrill, but he safely projects as a No. 4 starter with the potential to be a No. 3 if he maxes out.
