Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Hit: 50 | Power: 55 | Run: 40 | Arm: 50 | Field: 45 | Overall: 45

France will hold a special place in the hearts of Padres fans as a pupil of Tony Gwynn, when Gwynn served as head coach at San Diego State. France spent three seasons there before he was selected in the 34th round of the 2015 Draft and signed for $100,000 to play with the Padres. His bat worked at San Diego State, and his bat worked instantly in the Minor Leagues as well.

France made the leap from Class A Fort Wayne to Class A Advanced Lake Elsinore during his first full professional season in 2016. He impressed with his ability to reach base - at a .387 clip that year - but he did so without much power. The same held true in '17 when he made the jump to Double-A. But in '18, France's home-run potential - which was always there, given his muscular build and his quick bat - finally took shape. He tied for the system lead with 22 home runs between Double-A and Triple-A.

The 6-foot third baseman is unlikely to wow with his glove (and with Manny Machado in San Diego, he might need to find a different spot or two on the diamond). But France's compact right-handed swing and his savvy at the plate make him an enticing hitter with big league potential. Ultimately, his bat might prove too valuable to ignore.
