Padres’ minor league outfielder Jack Suwinski is starting to find his swing with the Lake Elsinore Storm. The left-handed hitter is a quiet individual but goes about his work with diligence, and the results are starting to come.
Jack Suwinski is a name that most fans wouldn’t know too much about. The Padres outfielder was drafted in the 15th round in 2016 out of a high school in the Chicago area. The soft-spoken, left-handed hitter carries a very big stick and has plenty of upside for a 20-year-old.
He is currently playing well for the Lake Elsinore Storm hitting .310 with four homers and 14 RBI in his first 16 games played. He has a great attitude and will keep advancing with his current mindset. “It is all about going about your business in the right way. Going out to the field every day and compete, while working hard. The ups and downs of a long season can get to you at some point. I am just learning every day,” Suwinski said. Playing in the Cal League at the age of 20 is no easy task. His maturity level is advanced.
In speaking to Suwinski, he left me with great lasting impressions. “I am looking to come out every day and be the best that I can be. I just want to help the team win. I want to be an unselfish player. Going out there and doing what is best for the team will help you in the long run,” Suwinski stated. You have to love when a prospect figures things out early. There is a long road still for Jack Suwinski, but he is well on his way in that journey.
