Xavier Edwards

A scouting report from a contributor ... optimisitic!

What's his deal?  Is he hurt?  Hasn't played in a while

He's apparently injured, but we've been unable to track down details. Sounds like it's a relatively minor issue and he should be back shortly.

Doesn't seem to be all that minor if he hasn't played in over a week, but hoping for the best. His skillset makes for an exciting watch. Believe in the bat/speed combo.

San Diego Padres Daily Farm Report: July 22

 Xavier Edwards played his first full game as he continues his return from a wrist injury. After giving way to a replacement midway through his first two contests back, the Padres’ second pick in June drew a walk and stole his ninth base. He has yet to get back on the field defensively, but is on a path back toward full activity.

Rotographs updated our top 10 and X is at #8.  One thing I don't get is that Mejia isn't listed and this was put out yesterday.  Must have been written several days ago.  Also, don't agree with Quantril being so high


8. Xavier Edwards | SS | R —> The Padres’ second selection in the 2018 draft, Edwards is an electric player with plus-plus speed and an advanced feel for the bat at the age of 18. He got off to a strong start in pro ball — .423 average, 6-4 BB-K, 6 steals in 7 tries — but suffered a wrist injury (severity undisclosed) and hasn’t played since late June. He’ll never be a home run hitter but this switch-hitter could be a top-of-the-order threat and a plus up-the-middle defender.

YA2HG ... Yet Another 2-Hit Game 🙂

Avg now at .377 ... #LIKE!

(And he could simply be the next Cedric Hunter)

From today's Daily ...

Xavier Edwards is on track to finish his first professional campaign with an on-base percentage above .450 across two levels. The 19-year-old shortstop has continued to walk more than he’s struck out in Tri-City and has swiped 22 bases in 23 attempts.

Just saw this tweet ...

padres system very deep of course, makes it easy to overlook some guys who would get more press in a thinner system. With that in mind, do not ignore Xavier Edwards, 19 year old infielder with speed and high OBP, could be excellent leadoff guy
