Snell immediately slots into the top of a rotation that ranked 8th last season in ERA, 9th in opponents’ batting average, and 3rd in WHIP.

Zach Davies and Dinelson Lamet topped the pitching depth chart, followed by Chris Paddack and Garrett Richards.

Snell joins the rotation coming off a 2020 season in which he threw 50 innings and finished with a 3.24 ERA and 1.20 WHIP with a 63/18 K/BB ratio.

He made 11 appearances with the Padres last season, throwing 17 1 ⁄ 3 innings and striking out 21 batters.

At high A Lake Elsinore, he had a 2.69 ERA and 1.09 WHIP while striking out 113 over 87 innings.

At AA Amarillo, he made two starts and struck out 10 while giving up 1 earned run.
