It’s extremely impressive to see three newly acquired hitters make an immediate impact like this. The Padres couldn’t have asked for a better start for each of their debuts with the team. Even so, San Diego is on the verge of becoming a whole lot better.
While these three went off against the Colorado Rockies, Fernando Tatis Jr. is set to return to the lineup soon. The Padres made a big splash at the MLB trade deadline, as the front office also acquired Josh Hader from the Milwaukee Brewers. San Diego’s lineup and pitching rotation are completely stacked and will be at full force when Tatis eventually returns.
Keep an eye on this franchise as they are primed for a deep playoff run. It’s going to be difficult slowing down a team like this, as the Padres are stacked throughout. With that said, good luck to the rest of the league once the postseason starts. They’re going to need it when facing San Diego.
