Chris Paddack - SP SD

Recommended Posts

Based on the SD schedule and the fact that they'll need 5 starters immediately, I expect Paddack to make it. He's already had TJS and he's 24 years old. The incentive to shave service time is diminished with a pitcher with that history imo.

He will start the year with mlb team. Service time should not be a concern. He will have a IP limit for the year, so they will send him to the minors later in the year. Or I am missing something?

I don't think he gets sent to the minors unless he's sucking. Theyll skip him or just dl him when they want to maintain

Kiley says upside is James Shields (which wasn't too bad for awhile). If so, seems his stock will start to peak if he makes the opening roster and more if he gets the nod on day 1. Lack of a effective 3rd pitch is a common theme. Would it be smart to consider selling soon if people are buying into some of those juicy SD Peavy lines?

Paddack has a better changeup than anyone that has come along in ages, hes hard to compare, Peavy worked 92-94 mostly, Paddack is 93-96 with a devastating change.  Everytime I see someone make solid contact its on a curveball that hangs.  I don't know why they dont work a splitter/cutter/slider instead

Yeah it's def not as bad as it sounds (the Shields comp)...there were some pretty good years in there. I've seen enough to believe that the CU is improving--to the point were it's not just a get-me-over type of offering. I also know it really doesn't count for much, but this kid just has something about him...moxie, mound presence (insert cliche)...obv can't be measured but I like how he competes and it makes me think that he expects to get better.

Yeah, i like optimism here. And to be clear, I am far from qualified to comp 1 pitcher to another as many here are able to do so well, just saying the Peavy put up some monster years in SD so it's easy to grab his stats and apply them when projecting one of our precious prospects lol. That's how the hype works!

AJ Cassavell: Chris Paddack and Matt Strahm start Monday and Tuesday in Seattle. That seemingly lines them up to start Saturday and Sunday against the Giants

Whats the latest auction value on this dude?

Impossible to say.

I can get him for a single dollar in standard redrafts.

In more competitive leagues there could always be a few big time fans of Paddack and see his $$ rise to $10 or so. 

I probably would be fine around $6, but anything more and your banking on a lot of success in IP and longevity.

I participated in a NL-only auction draft and got him for $11 on a $260 budget.  Not sure if that helps you gauge value or not, but thought I'd share.

I got him for $6 in a keeper draft.  I'd think you're still under $10 for him.
