The 2017 MLB draft has come and gone, and the San Diego Padres have strengthened their organization’s pitching for years to come with their first round selection of MacKenzie Gore. Picked third overall, the high schooler is projected to become one of the organization’s top prospects almost immediately.
Now that the signing of Gore has been made official, it is a good time to look back at the success of some of San Diego’s past first round picks.
Of course, some have had great success while others have fallen short of expectations. More recent picks may be beginning to pan out, but still have yet to reach their full potential.
