Padres' CJ Abrams: Out for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abrams will miss the rest of the season after being diagnosed with a fractured left tibia and a sprained MCL, AJ Cassavell of reports.

The young shortstop suffered the injury Wednesday on a collision at second base, and it will bring his 2021 campaign to an abrupt end. The 20-year-old had a .290/.357/.414 slash line with two homers, 14 doubles, 23 RBI, 26 runs and 13 stolen bases through 42 games at Double-A San Antonio this season. Abrams, the Padres' top prospect, will have about seven months of recovery time before the start of spring training.

Padres' CJ Abrams: Dealing with leg injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abrams exited Wednesday's contest with Double-A San Antonio after a collision at second base in the ninth inning, reports.

Abrams went 1-for-4 in the contest before the incident, which resulted in the 20-year-old leaving the field unable to put much weight on his left leg. The extent of the injury is unclear, but it's worth noting that Abrams did not play in either game of Thursday's doubleheader. He has been solid in his first Double-A campaign, slashing .290/.357/.414 with two homers, 23 RBI and 13 stolen bases over 42 games.

Padres' CJ Abrams: Posts four-hit Double-A performance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abrams went 4-for-5 with two doubles, a stolen base, four RBI and two runs for Double-A San Antonio on Friday.

Abrams' four-hit effort was the second of his professional career and his first this season. The highly touted prospect appears over the ankle injury that sidelined him in late May, as he has swiped seven bases while slashing .333/.385/.404 in 14 games during June. Only four of his 19 hits this month have gone for extra bases, however, so Friday's two-double performance is a promising development.

Padres' CJ Abrams: Rejoins Double-A lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams (ankle) returned to action for Double-A San Antonio on Sunday, going 0-for-4 as a designated hitter in the affiliate's 12-2 loss to Northwest Arkansas.

Adams had been out of the lineup for just over a week with the ankle injury. Given that San Antonio chose to use Abrams as a DH in his first game back rather than at shortstop, he may not be 100 percent recovered from the injury, but the organization likely doesn't view the ankle issue as a major concern.

Padres' CJ Abrams: Still not playing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abrams (ankle) remains out of the lineup for Double-A San Antonio on Thursday.

Abrams has not played since limping off the field following a play at first base Saturday. He remains on the active roster and is considered day-to-day, according to Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune.

Padres' CJ Abrams: Exits minor-league game with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abrams was removed from Saturday's Double-A contest after pulling up lame at first base, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Abrams came up limping after being thrown out at first base on a groundout in the fifth inning. He was subsequently removed from the game and is not in the lineup for San Antonio's Sunday contest. The nature of Abrams' issue has yet to be announced, and it is unclear whether he'll be out beyond Sunday. The Padres are likely to proceed with caution given the 20-year-old's vaunted prospect status.

Padres' CJ Abrams: Notches two hits in Double-A debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abrams went 2-for-5 with a pair of doubles, a walk, a run and an RBI in his first game with Double-A San Antonio on Tuesday.

The Padres' lauded prospect impressed in his Double-A debut, collecting four total bases and reaching base three times. After slashing .393/.436/.647 across two levels in 2019, Abrams was stalled by the minor-league shutdown last season. He doesn't appear to have missed a beat, however, and could advance to a regular role in the majors as soon as next season.

Padres' CJ Abrams: Starts at second base Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abrams started at second base and went 0-for-2 in Monday's exhibition loss to the Cubs.

The Padres' top prospect didn't log any time at second base during his lone season in the minors in 2019, but he figures to be considered for a transition to the position given Fernando Tatis' stranglehold on the shortstop job in San Diego well into the future. Abrams is only 20 years old and is likely at least a year away from being ready to stake his claim in the majors, so San Diego has some time to figure out where he'll eventually fit in its loaded lineup.

Padres' CJ Abrams: Invited to summer camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abrams will be part of the Padres' 60-man summer camp.

Abrams is the Padres' top prospect for dynasty leagues, but his inclusion in the player pool is for developmental purposes rather than to help the big-league squad in 2020. Perhaps his speed and defense could be an asset in a pinch, but he will likely reach the majors for the first time in 2022 or 2023.

Padres' CJ Abrams: Unlikely to reach majors in 2020
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abrams could be named to the taxi squad under the current MLB proposal for a 2020 season, but he is unlikely to see big-league playing time during the campaign, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.

Per Lin, "a couple of staffers have suggested that if any A-ball player could make the jump in an emergency, Abrams might lead the list." However, the prospect's lack of experience -- he has played in only 34 professional games -- makes such a scenario unlikely. Abrams' service-time clock must also be taken into consideration as the 19-year-old was slated to open the season in Low-A ball, making a sudden jump to the majors contrary to the Padres' interests.

Padres' CJ Abrams: Staying active during hiatus
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abrams has been playing catch, practicing hitting and performing various workouts during the suspension of play, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.

The Padres' top prospect has been staying at home in Georgia during MLB's hiatus, but that hasn't stopped him from working on his skills on an everyday basis. Abrams was expected to open the 2020 campaign with Low-A Fort Wayne, though it remains to be seen when -- or if -- a minor-league season will get underway this year.

Padres' CJ Abrams: Healthy to begin campaign
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abrams has recovered from a bone bruise in his shoulder and was participating in minor-league camp -- including playing games on the back field of the Padres' spring training complex, per Nick Recchia of FriarLounge -- before camp was suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Abrams actually made his return to game action in October during the Don Welke Classic, according to Bill Center of FriarWire. The Padres' top prospect missed the end of last season due to the shoulder issue but nonetheless enjoyed a spectacular campaign highlighted by recognition as the MVP of the rookie-level Arizona League.

Padres' CJ Abrams: Named AZL MVP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abrams (shoulder) was named the MVP of the rookie-level Arizona League, Jeff Sanders of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

He only played in 32 games in the AZL before moving up to Low-A Fort Wayne, but Abrams did enough in those games to take home MVP honors. The 18-year-old hit a ridiculous .401/.442/.662 with three homers and 14 steals in 20 attempts. A bone bruise in his shoulder sidelined Abrams after two games with Fort Wayne and he did not make it back before the end of the TinCaps' season, but Abrams' performance during his first taste of pro ball should have Padres fans excited. Dynasty leaguers should expect to see Abrams go off the board within the first four picks of their first-year player draft.

Padres' CJ Abrams: Diagnosed with bone bruise
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abrams is likely to miss two weeks after tests on his shoulder indicated a bone bruise, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Abrams injured his shoulder Wednesday night while diving into a bag and headed to San Diego for tests soon thereafter. The sixth overall pick in the 2019 draft hit .401 in 142 at-bats in rookie ball before he was promoted to Low-A Fort Wayne on Tuesday.

Padres' CJ Abrams: Moves up to Midwest League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Padres promoted Abrams from their rookie-level Arizona League affiliate to Low-A Fort Wayne on Tuesday, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

The No. 6 overall pick in June's first-year player draft will receive the first promotion of his young career after a 32-game stint in rookie ball. Over his 156 plate appearances with the Arizona League affiliate, the 18-year-old shortstop produced a 1.104 OPS and 10:14 BB:K while nabbing 14 steals in 20 attempts.
