Padres Agree to Terms with First-Round Selection LHP Ryan Weathers

26 of 41 draft picks signed in addition to two non-drafted free agents

SAN DIEGO - The San Diego Padres have agreed to terms with left-handed pitcher Ryan Weathers, their first-round selection (seventh overall) in the 2018 First-Year Player Draft, Executive Vice President/General Manager A.J. Preller announced today. To date, the club has signed 26 of 41 players selected in the draft, as well as two non-drafted free agents.

Weathers, 18, went 10-0 with a 0.09 ERA and 148 strikeouts in 76.0 innings pitched as a senior in 2018, allowing just 24 hits and 10 walks while earning Gatorade National Baseball High School Player of the Year honors. After selecting LHP MacKenzie Gore with the third overall pick in the 2017 Draft, the Padres now have the two most recent Gatorade National Baseball High School Player of the Year award winners in their system.
