Triple-A El Paso - Brett Kennedy

Over the past eight days, the 23-year-old Kennedy has allowed two earned runs on 10 hits and five walks with 17 strikeouts in 10 2/3 innings. The 6-foot, 200-pound Kennedy, an 11th-round pick in the 2015 draft out of Fordham University, is 3-0 this season with a 1.29 ERA in five starts. He has allowed six runs (four earned) on 21 hits and 10 walks with 28 strikeouts in 28 innings. Hitters are batting .196 against Kennedy, who has a 1.11 WHIP.

Insider's Note: Brett has plus command on his fast ball. He has worked hard to develop his breaking stuff this year.

Double-A San Antonio - Logan Allen

Allen, 20, was 1-0 with a 1.38 ERA in two starts last week. He allowed two runs on seven hits and four walks with 12 strikeouts in 13 innings. Allen - who was acquired along with Manuel Margot, Carlos Asuaje and Javy Guerra from Boston in the 2015 trade for closer Craig Kimbrel - is 3-1 with a 3.14 ERA in five starts for the Missions. Opposing Texas League hitters are batting .229 against Allen.

Insider's Note: Logan has a plus changeup that is very effective against both right-handed and left-handed hitters.

Advanced Single-A Lake Elsinore - Jorge Oña

The 21-year-old, right-handed hitting Cuban, who signed with the Padres as a member of the 2016 international class, was 9-for-24 last week with two doubles, three walks and three RBIs for a .375 batting average and a .444 on-base percentage. Oña had four, two-hit games last week and has hit safely in 10 of his last 11 games to raise his season batting average to .293.

Insider's Note: Jorge has a strong body and has worked hard on his speed and agility this year.

Single-A Fort Wayne - Travis Radke

At 25, Radke is the oldest player on the youngest team in the Midwest League, but his career was delayed by Tommy John surgery in 2016. Radke had two saves in four appearances last week and allowed a hit, a walk and a hit batter with five strikeouts in four innings. Opposing hitters batted .077 against Radke last week. The 6-foot-4, 200-pound Radke was a 25th-round pick in the 2014 draft. He has 21 strikeouts in 12 1/3 innings this season. 

Insider's Note: Travis brings with him an old school delivery. His arsenal contains a fastball/changeup combo that keeps hitters off balance.
