Ryan Weathers
21-Year-Old PitcherSP
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Weathers received his first opportunity to take the big stage in 2020, making his MLB debut at a crucial time for the Padres. He hurled 1.1 scoreless innings in Game 1 of the NLDS against the Dodgers, walking two in the process. The 21-year-old put together a decent 2019 campaign at Low-A in 2019, finishing with a 3.84 ERA and 1.24 WHIP to go along with a 90:18 K:BB across 96 frames. When the southpaw is really locked in, he's able to get hitters out on the corners, or by grounding out weakly, which explains his 45.3 GB% and 22.8 K% at Low-A. Weathers' conditioning remains a concern, however, as he sits at 6-foot-1 and 230 pounds as a young athlete. Expect him to begin 2021 as a part of the starting rotation for Double-A Amarillo.

Shifting to bullpen
PSan Diego Padres
June 13, 2021
Weathers will move to the bullpen during the upcoming week with the Padres set to scale back their rotation from six to five starters, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
ANALYSIS
Weathers has fared well in a starting role this season, posting a 2.78 ERA over 32.1 innings. However, he has taken a small step back over his past two starts, allowing seven earned runs across 10 frames. In addition, the southpaw has yet to reach 100 innings in a professional season, so the move out of the rotation for now may help him contribute more later in the campaign.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2019
Weathers logged a 1.82 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 31:3 K:BB in 24.2 innings over five April starts in the Midwest League. Then he missed three weeks with arm fatigue and had a 4.54 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 59:15 K:BB in 71.1 innings the rest of the way. When Weathers, the son of long-time big-league reliever David Weathers, is on, he attacks hitters with a low-90s fastball that he locates to both sides of the plate and sits hitters down with a plus changeup. However, his velocity wasn't there when he returned and it showed. Conditioning is probably his biggest objective going forward, as at 6-foot-1, 230 pounds, he is overweight for an ordinary Joe, let alone a 20-year-old professional athlete. If he takes his diet and conditioning seriously and his average slider improves slightly, he could be a very good mid-rotation starter.
When the Padres drafted Weathers No. 7 overall in last year's draft, some thought that he would have to settle for an under-slot signing bonus. Weathers ended up getting the full slot value -- $5.23 million. The son of longtime big leaguer David Weathers, Ryan totaled 18.1 innings between rookie ball and Low-A after being drafted. He has flashed plus with his fastball and curveball, and has shown an advanced feel for the changeup. It's an impressive repertoire for a 19-year-old lefty, and the pedigree and command are there, offering hope that he can max out. Chances are, Weathers will head back to A-ball and spend much of the season at the lower levels. If his development proceeds are expected, he will then spend much of 2020 at the upper levels before likely breaking in as a starter in 2021. If the Padres are competitive in 2020, perhaps they will have Weathers get his feet wet in a relief role late in the campaign.
