SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- With the Major League Baseball season getting the green light to go forward, the San Diego Padres announced their player pool for the upcoming Summer Camp, and it includes some of the organization’s much-heralded prospects.
The 52 players selected for the 60-man pool will be eligible to play this season. Pool players will begin reporting for an abbreviated training camp at Petco Park and a secondary location -- believed to be the University of San Diego -- as early as July 1.
Following camp, MLB will begin its 60-game regular season on July 23.
The Padres’ roster heading into camp includes big names such as Manny Machado and Fernando Tatis Jr., but the team will bring in some of the top prospects in all of baseball such as pitchers Mackenzie Gore and Luis Patiño; infielder C.J. Abrams; and outfielder Taylor Trammell.
Outfielder Robert Hassell III, the Padres’ 2020 1st-round draft pick, was also selected to be part of the team’s pool of 52 players.
By Opening Day, the 30 players will be on the roster.
