BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2013 Nick Schmidt, the Padres' first-round pick in 2007, came to Colorado in the Street trade and remained healthy enough to break triple digits in innings for the first time in his career but was hit hard in his initial exposure to Triple-A.
2008 The Padres have had some downright awful luck with their top draft picks. That continued with Nick Schmidt, their first-round pick last June, who lasted seven innings before his elbow popped and required Tommy John surgery. He won't pitch again until 2009. Like many Padres prospects, he's more of a moxie guy than a velocity guy, despite his size
