While Matt Wisler and Keyvius Sampson will deservedly get most of the attention, San Antonio also had quite a bit of depth. http://www.scout.com/mlb/padres/story/1336178-texas-league-2013-pitcher-of-the-year 2047 MadFriars Staff http://www.scout.com/mlb/padres/story/1336178-texas-league-2013-pitcher-of-the-year Tue, 15 Oct 2013 01:59:00 GMT 0 315 San Diego padres Scout MadFriars' Daily Farm Report: August 3 A tough night for the system as only the Storm and the AZL Padres come out on top. It's been a good year for LE's James Needy and there are some interesting position prospects in the AZL this year. http://www.scout.com/mlb/padres/story/1312709-madfriars-daily-farm-report-august-3 2047 John Conniff http://www.scout.com/mlb/padres/story/1312709-madfriars-daily-farm-report-august-3 Sun, 04 Aug 2013 14:22:00 GMT 0 315 San Diego padres Scout MadFriars' Daily Farm Report: May 18 After the Grandal news, two nice pitching performances by O'Sullivan with Tucson and Needy for Lake Elsinore.

April featured strong performances from a number of the Padres' highly-regarded hurlers at each level of the system, making the competition a tough one. http://www.scout.com/mlb/padres/story/1288997-madfriars-april-pitcher-of-the-month 2047 David Jay http://www.scout.com/mlb/padres/story/1288997-madfriars-april-pitcher-of-the-month Fri, 03 May 2013 11:27:00 GMT 0 315 San Diego padres Scout MadFriars' Daily Farm Report: April 27 We were in Tucson to watch an impressive T-Padres win.

If the 2013 Missions can hit just a little bit they will be in every game as one through five the starters are as good as any that San Diego has sent to the San Antonio Missions in the past. http://www.scout.com/mlb/padres/story/1280548-madfriars-preview-13-san-antonio-missions 2047 John Conniff http://www.scout.com/mlb/padres/story/1280548-madfriars-preview-13-san-antonio-missions Thu, 04 Apr 2013 01:24:00 GMT 0 315 San Diego padres Scout MadFriars' Top 20 for 2013 The Padres enter 2013 with a relatively strong farm system, though much of the promise, particularly with pitching, is still a few years down the road. http://www.scout.com/mlb/padres/story/1271435-madfriars-top-20-for-2013 2047 MadFriars' Staff http://www.scout.com/mlb/padres/story/1271435-madfriars-top-20-for-2013 Mon, 04 Mar 2013 04:03:00 GMT 0 315 San Diego padres Scout MadFriars' Top 30 2013: Jay Edition You've seen the personal top 30 lists from John and Ben.

Sure the first five to ten prospects are roughly the same, but what makes them interesting are those final ten to fifteen rankings. http://www.scout.com/mlb/padres/story/1241504-madfriars-top-30-2013-davey-edition 2047 Ben Davey http://www.scout.com/mlb/padres/story/1241504-madfriars-top-30-2013-davey-edition Mon, 19 Nov 2012 03:57:00 GMT 1 315 San Diego padres Scout MadFriars' Top 30 2013: Conniff Edition Top prospect lists are fun to read and always among the most popular articles on the site. However, as has been stated in the past, they are not an apples-to-apples comparison but more of a grouping of some of the top players in the organization. http://www.scout.com/mlb/padres/story/1239299-madfriars-top-30-2013-conniff-edition 2047 John Conniff http://www.scout.com/mlb/padres/story/1239299-madfriars-top-30-2013-conniff-edition Tue, 13 Nov 2012 02:45:00 GMT 1 315 San Diego padres Scout Randy Smith on the 2012 Lake Elsinore Storm We caught up with Randy Smith, the Padres' Director of Player Development and International Scouting from his headquarters in Peoria, Arizona for the fourth segment of our six part interview on the top prospects in the system. http://www.scout.com/mlb/padres/story/1227708-randy-smith-on-the-2012-lake-elsinore-storm 2047 John Conniff http://www.scout.com/mlb/padres/story/1227708-randy-smith-on-the-2012-lake-elsinore-storm Fri, 05 Oct 2012 02:07:00 GMT 1 315 San Diego padres Scout 2012 MadFriars' CL Pitcher of the Year Summary: The Storm finished the first half with a slightly better record than they had in the second half, yet they reached the playoffs as a second-half Wild Card team. http://www.scout.com/mlb/padres/story/1227288-2012-madfriars-cl-pitcher-of-the-year 2047 MadFriars Staff http://www.scout.com/mlb/padres/story/1227288-2012-madfriars-cl-pitcher-of-the-year Wed, 03 Oct 2012 01:48:00 GMT 0 315 San Diego padres Scout MadFriars' Pitchers of the Month: August Jason Ray and Jerry Sullivan shined out of the bullpen. Matt Wisler continues to perform in Fort Wayne along with his winter roommate Justin Hancock in Eugene and Josh Geer comes back to the pitchers of the month in San Antonio. http://www.scout.com/mlb/padres/story/1218624-madfriars-pitchers-of-the-month-august 2047 John Conniff http://www.scout.com/mlb/padres/story/1218624-madfriars-pitchers-of-the-month-august Thu, 06 Sep 2012 01:17:00 GMT 0 315 San Diego padres Scout MadFriars' Interview: Kevin Quackenbush LAKE ELSINORE: Kevin Quackenbush was taken in the 8th round of the 2011 Rule IV draft out of the University of South Florida. At USF, Quackenbush set a school record with a 0.80 ERA in 2011, where he was named All Big East and led the conference in saves. http://www.scout.com/mlb/padres/story/1215568-madfriars-interview-kevin-quackenbush 2047 Ben Davey http://www.scout.com/mlb/padres/story/1215568-madfriars-interview-kevin-quackenbush Tue, 28 Aug 2012 14:27:00 GMT 1 315 San Diego padres Scout MadFriars' Pitchers of the Month: July Keyvius Sampson bounces back and Matt Wisler continues to make the case that he was the best pitcher in 2012 on a talented staff in Fort Wayne. The one thing the T-Padres can produce are bullpen guys in Tucson and Lake Elsinore's Burch Smith has another strong month. http://www.scout.com/mlb/padres/story/1210446-madfriars-pitchers-of-the-month-july 2047 John Conniff http://www.scout.com/mlb/padres/story/1210446-madfriars-pitchers-of-the-month-july Fri, 10 Aug 2012 23:41:00 GMT 0 315 San Diego padres Scout MadFriars' Farm Report: July 7 There must be some type of special magic on players bats when they arrive in Lake Elsinore because everyone is hitting for the Storm. A rare tough night offensively in Las Vegas for the T-Padres and the Missions offense is bolstered by the return of two players. Another strong outing by Matt Wisler in Fort Wayne. http://www.scout.com/mlb/padres/story/1200797-madfriars-farm-report-july-7 2047 John Conniff http://www.scout.com/mlb/padres/story/1200797-madfriars-farm-report-july-7 Sun, 08 Jul 2012 13:43:00 GMT 0 315 San Diego padres Scout MadFriars' Pitchers of the Month: June With many of the big name prospects on the disabled list several of the more unheralded pitchers have stepped up. Keep an eye on Burch Smith of Lake Elsinore and Matt Wisler of Fort Wayne both of whom should make top prospect lists in 2013. http://www.scout.com/mlb/padres/story/1200361-madfriars-pitchers-of-the-month-june 2047 John Conniff http://www.scout.com/mlb/padres/story/1200361-madfriars-pitchers-of-the-month-june Fri, 06 Jul 2012 01:06:00 GMT 0 315 San Diego padres Scout MadFriars' Farm Report: July 4 A big home run for Connor Powers in a wild one in Lake Elsinore. The Missions have now won ten straight. In Fort Wayne two of the Padres top position prospects continue to shine. http://www.scout.com/mlb/padres/story/1200235-madfriars-farm-report-july-4 2047 Ben Davey http://www.scout.com/mlb/padres/story/1200235-madfriars-farm-report-july-4 Thu, 05 Jul 2012 14:27:00 GMT 0 315 San Diego padres Scout MadFriars' Pitcher of the Month: May Quality performances by three young pitchers - Robbie Erlin, Donn Roach and Brad Boxberger who were all brought over in trades. But the big story may be the accumulation of quality young arms in Fort Wayne led this month by Adys Portillo and Matt Wisler. http://www.scout.com/mlb/padres/story/1192933-madfriars-pitcher-of-the-month-may 2047 John Conniff http://www.scout.com/mlb/padres/story/1192933-madfriars-pitcher-of-the-month-may Thu, 07 Jun 2012 16:50:00 GMT 0 315 San Diego padres Scout MadFriars' Pitchers of the Month: April The good news was Tucson's Casey Kelly pitched great in his two starts but hasn't returned to the mound as the team wants to be very careful with a sore elbow. A big reason for the Storm's winning record this month was the solid performances they got from their starters and maybe the best closer in the system. http://www.scout.com/mlb/padres/story/1184090-madfriars-pitchers-of-the-month-april 2047 John Conniff http://www.scout.com/mlb/padres/story/1184090-madfriars-pitchers-of-the-month-april Sun, 06 May 2012 00:54:00 GMT 0 315 San Diego padres Scout MadFriars' Farm Report: April 21 Synopsis: A rare clean sweep for the organization on both the major league level and for all for affiliates. A big night for Everth Cabrera in Tucson and CF Reymond Fuentes is starting to answer some questions. At the A ball level 1b Connor Powers gets of the snide with his home run and LHP Frank Garces may be the best pitcher in Fort Wayne. http://www.scout.com/mlb/padres/story/1179714-madfriars-farm-report-april-21 2047 John Conniff http://www.scout.com/mlb/padres/story/1179714-madfriars-farm-report-april-21 Sun, 22 Apr 2012 12:11:00 GMT 0 315 San Diego padres Scout MadFriars' Farm Report: April 6 After an uninspiring open night, the Padres' system bounced back with a clean sweep on Friday on the back of some strong pitching by notable prospects. http://www.scout.com/mlb/padres/story/1175150-madfriars-farm-report-april-6 2047 David Jay http://www.scout.com/mlb/padres/story/1175150-madfriars-farm-report-april-6 Sat, 07 Apr 2012 14:10:00 GMT 0 315 San Diego padres Scout MadFriars' Preview: 2012 Lake Elsinore Storm Synopsis: Offensively the Fort Wayne team that is moving to Lake Elsinore was the most exciting group that was in San Diego's organization last year, a great mix of speed and power. If the starting pitching can hold, this will be not only a very fun team to watch but hopefully an indicator of the future in PETCO. http://www.scout.com/mlb/padres/story/1173863-madfriars-preview-2012-lake-elsinore-storm 2047 John Conniff http://www.scout.com/mlb/padres/story/1173863-madfriars-preview-2012-lake-elsinore-storm Tue, 03 Apr 2012 11:58:00 GMT 0 315 San Diego padres Scout
