Dinelson Lamet - Dinelson Lamet is a talented arm, and San Diego is in need of any talented pitcher they can get these days. He had Tommy John last season, and will be looking to work his way back in the new year. Being on the younger side, San Diego will likely ease him back even after the break. Lamet is still in need of more major league time, so every start missed is a loss of experience.
When Adam Eaton was starting off in San Diego he dealt with numerous injuries, and really over his career he dealt with major injuries. It started in the early 2000’s for him, dealing with a tendon issue in his finger that had him miss several months. Everth Cabrera had been with the team a few years, but started to breakout more closer to 2010. He had a run ended where he fractured a bone in his left hand, causing him to miss several months of the 2009 season. Chris Young was often banged up during his time in San Diego.
Carlos Quentin was a big bopper for the Padres, but a fractured left foot derailed his 2012 season, where he missed most of it. That was a season to forget for San Diego, who dealt with major injuries. Logan Forsythe fractured his foot, while Kyle Blanks had to undergo surgery for the second time in two seasons. Jason Marquis and Joe Wieland both had season ending surgery in 2012. Tyson Ross was a slider happy arm, and needed Tommy John surgery. Both him and Mat Latos were looking to anchor this staff before fading away with injuries.
Cameron Maybin was looking to be a stud center fielder for San Diego, but torn ligaments in his knee back during the 2013 season completely ended his season and stint with the Padres. Yasmani Grandal was right there to follow him with a sprained knee that kept him out for some time. Wil Myers came over to San Diego and was hoping to be their star centerpiece. He ended up missing quite a bit of time in his first year, dealing with bone spurs in his wrist.
