2019 Fantasy Outlook
Significant help is finally coming for the Padres’ rotation in 2019, with Paddack leading the way. His fastball doesn’t generate plus readings on the radar gun (typically 93-94 mph), but at 6-foot-4, he gets great extension on the pitch, and plus command allows it to play up at least a full grade. Paddack may have the best changeup in the minors, which, coupled with his fastball command, has enabled him to log a 1.82 ERA, 0.80 WHIP and 230:20 K:BB in 177.2 career innings while holding opposing hitters to a .193 AVG. His success to this point is unparalleled. He could make it as a No. 3 starter with his current repertoire. However, if he can improve his breaking ball and/or add another tick to his fastball in his second year back from Tommy John surgery, Paddack could profile as a No. 1 starter. The Padres limited him to 85 pitches per outing in 2018, but they should set him loose this year. He could join the big-league rotation around the All-Star break. Read Past Outlooks

Dominant against Mariners
PSan Diego Padres
April 24, 2019
Paddack (1-1) got the win against the Mariners on Wednesday, throwing a seven-inning shutout while allowing just one hit, striking out nine and walking one as the Padres prevailed 1-0.
ANALYSIS
Paddack turned in a brilliant and efficient outing, needing just 83 pitches to make it through seven innings while allowing just two runners to reach base. The rookie has been a revelation so far this season, as he's now sporting a stellar 1.67 ERA, a 0.67 WHIP and a 30:8 K:BB through 27 innings. He'll look to keep it rolling in his next start, which will see him take the hill in a road matchup against the Braves on Tuesday.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Paddack turned himself into a hot commodity to begin the 2016 campaign, as the 20-year-old posted an absurd 48:2 K:BB in 28.1 innings at Low-A in the Marlins' organization. With a 0.95 ERA to boot, Paddack was traded at the height of his value to the Padres in the Fernando Rodney deal. He continued to dominate through three starts, notching a 0.64 ERA and 23:3 K:BB in 14 subsequent innings for Low-A Fort Wayne. Unfortunately, he then started experiencing elbow problems, was diagnosed with a torn UCL and ultimately underwent Tommy John surgery in August. As a result, he will likely miss the entirety of the 2017 season. When healthy, Paddack combines his sneaky low-90s fastball with a changeup and exceptional command. The development of a third pitch will determine his future path, if he can return to form following surgery.
