Former Marlins prospect Chris Paddack nearly throws a no-hitter in Miami return with Padres

Chris Paddack never got to step on the mound at Marlins Park as a member of the Miami Marlins. It was always the plan for the starting pitcher, whom the Marlins selected in the eighth round of 2015 MLB draft and nurtured in their farm system for parts of two years. He was on his way to becoming one of the best prospects in the sport when Miami suddenly traded him to the San Diego Padres for Fernando Rodney midway through the 2016 season. He pictured himself turning into a front-line starter for the promising core the Marlins had at the time. These were all the things Paddack had to think about when he finally stepped to the mound in Miami for the first time Wednesday, now the Padres’ ace as a 23-year-old rookie. They were impossible not to think about while Paddack carved through the Marlins for 7 2/3 one-hit innings in a 3-2 win. He took a perfect game into the sixth inning. He didn’t allow a hit until the eighth when second baseman Starlin Castro led off with a home run to left. The right-handed pitcher struck out five batters his first time through the Marlins’ order, then four more his next two times. San Diego scored three runs against Trevor Richards in the fourth inning and it was more than enough to knock Miami out of reach. Paddack delivered the best outing of his career against the team that drafted him then shipped him to the Padres in exchange for a 39-year-old relief pitcher who posted a 5.89 ERA in just 39 appearances for the Marlins.
