Triple-A El Paso - Left-handed starter Dillon Overton

The 26-year-old, 6-foot-2, 175-pounder won both his starts last week while allowing two runs (one earned) on six hits and three walks with seven strikeouts over 14 innings for the Chihuahuas. That is both a 0.64 earned run average and WHIP. Between Double-A San Antonio and El Paso, Overton is 4-2 on the season with a 2.58 ERA in 14 games (seven starts) with a 1.01 WHIP and a .202 opponents' batting average.

Double-A San Antonio - Catcher Austin Allen

Allen, 24, is ranked the Padres' No. 27 prospect by MLB Pipeline. He was 7-for-20 last week with two doubles, two homers, a sacrifice fly, four RBIs and three runs scored for a .381 on-base percentage and a .750 slugging percentage for a 1.131 OPS. Allen ranks first in the Texas League in slugging percentage (.608), second in home runs (14), third in OPS (.985) and fifth in batting (.327).  

Insider's Note:  Austin is playing a premium position at catcher, making his bat dangerous from the left side. He's an exciting player to follow.

Advanced Single-A Lake Elsinore - Right-handed starter Michel Baez

Ranked the Padres No. 5 prospect by MLB Pipeline, Baez was honored by the California League for his start June 5 at Inland Empire. Baez allowed one hit and no walks with eight strikeouts over six scoreless innings. Baez has a 2.84 ERA and a 1.18 WHIP over eight starts this season. He is 2-1 in his last three starts with a 1.06 ERA and a 0.82 WHIP.

Insider's Note: Michel has an excellent angle on his fastball. He has the ability to fool hitters with both his breaking ball and changeup. 

Single-A Fort Wayne - Right-handed starter Luis Patiño

The 6-foot, 170-pound, 18-year-old from Colombia joined the Padres' Top-30 prospect list this week in the No. 24 spot. Last Saturday he pitched five hitless innings, issuing three walks while striking out four. He has a 3.22 ERA in five starts with 23 strikeouts in 22 1/3 innings. Over his last three starts, Patiño has allowed one unearned run on nine hits and four walks with 16 strikeouts in 14 innings.

Insider's Note: Luis is a tremendous athlete with exceptional makeup. He's a very young talent with huge upside. 

Single-A Dominican Summer League - Right-handed starter Miguel Rondon

The 5-foot-11, 150-pound, 17-year-old Rondon from Venezuela made two starts in the first week of the DSL and allowed one unearned run on three hits and two walks with four strikeouts in seven innings. That's a 0.00 ERA and a 0.71 WHIP.
