We can now add pitcher Adrian Morejon to the list of youngsters debuting for the Southern California team. According to MLB’s Francys Romero, the Padres will promote Morejon from Double-A. This means he’ll skip an entire level in the minors before making his MLB debut.
Morejon, 20, was San Diego’s fourth-best prospect heading into the season. He’s pitched to a 0-4 record with a 4.25 ERA and 1.22 WHIP in 16 starts at Double-A this season.
This comes on the heels of San Diego promoting No. 2 prospect, infielder Luis Urias, on Friday.
