Ty France
26-Year-Old Second Baseman2B
San Diego Padres
2020 Fantasy Outlook
France had the type of minor-league season that looks like a typo. He thoroughly enjoyed the spoils of the juiced ball in the Pacific Coast League and playing in El Paso, hitting .399/.477/.770 in 348 plate appearance with 27 homers and 172 runs-plus-RBI. He earned a promotion to San Diego, where his production returned to a more believable level. That said, 34 homers, 103 runs and 113 RBI in a season is some accomplishment. He also has a knack as a ball magnet at the plate, having been hit by pitches at least 25 times in each of the past four seasons. The Padres brought in Jurickson Profar to take over at second base in 2020, though France arguably has more upside at this point. Given the roster construction, France would likely be hitting seventh or eighth even if he were to take over as the starter eventually. Read Past Outlooks

Vying for roster spot
2BSan Diego Padres
March 24, 2020
France is "among a handful of players" in competition for the final spot on the Padres' Opening Day roster, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Though France put up a monster season at the Triple-A level last season, posting a .399/.477/.770 slash line with 27 home runs, he entered spring training needing a solid showing to break camp with the big-league club. The 25-year-old wasn't overly impressive in Cactus League play -- he batted .235, though all four of his hits went for extra bases -- but did enough to remain in the running for the Padres' 26th and final roster spot. Part of France's appeal lies in his versatility; he logged games at three different infield positions last season and spent time this spring honing his skills behind the plate.
