2024 Fantasy Outlook
The son of former big leaguer David Weathers, Ryan was drafted seventh overall by the Padres in 2018. His time in San Diego came to an unceremonious end at the deadline last year when the team traded him to Miami essentially for two months of Garrett Cooper. The results only worsened after the trade as Weathers struggled to a 7.62 ERA and 1.92 WHIP in three appearances (two starts) with the Marlins. He brings decent velocity to the table for a starter, and Statcast suggests the lefty deserved significantly better results on his four-seamer last season (.340 BA, .232 xBA). Weathers still has a minor-league option remaining and would likely be best suited serving as depth at Triple-A, but injuries could force him into the Marlins' rotation to start the year. He will remain a tough sell in mixed leagues until he shows some sort of consistency at the big-league level. Read Past Outlooks

The Marlins transferred Weathers (finger) from the 15-day injured list to the 60-day IL on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
The left-hander has been shut down from throwing due to an index finger strain since he landed on the shelf June 8, so he was already likely to be sidelined for 60-plus days. Weathers is expected to be re-evaluated soon, and he could be back with the Marlins sometime in August if cleared to resume throwing after that evaluation.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2020
2019
Weathers had his day in the sun as a 20-year-old in 2020 when he jumped from High-A to the majors to make his first big-league appearance against the Dodgers in Game 1 of the NLDS. He opened the following season on the big-league roster and fared well for a few months but fell apart late in the campaign and hasn't looked good since. The right-hander spent most of last season in Triple-A, posting a 6.73 ERA and 1.79 WHIP over 123 innings. His 6.46 FIP suggests that there wasn't a bright spot below the surface of his struggles, which isn't surprising given that his strikeout rate (15.6%) was far too close to his walk rate (10.1%). Both numbers were easily his worst as a pro, as was his 2.3 HR/9. Figuring out the causes for such regression will be key to Weathers getting his career back on track, with perhaps the best thing going for him being the fact that he's still just 22. A turnaround could have Weathers making an impact with the big-league club in 2023, but there's no doubt that his star is much dimmer than it was a few seasons ago.
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.
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.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Option to start Saturday?
PSan Diego Padres
July 12, 2023
The Padres have yet to list a probable starting pitcher for Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Phillies, per Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune, and Weathers should be in the mix to start the contest.
ANALYSIS
Blake Snell is penciled in for Game 1 of the twin bill, but the Friars haven't indicated who will start the nightcap. Weathers was sent to Triple-A El Paso after he surrendered six runs in 1.2 frames against Cleveland on June 15, which inflated his ERA to 6.08 through 11 appearances. Even if he is recalled, the 23-year-old doesn't offer much streaming appeal, and he would likely serve as the 27th man for the twin bill and return to the minors after the game.
