2018 FANTASY BASEBALL WELCOME TO THE SHOW: JOEY LUCCHESI SP SAN DIEGO PADRES

Already possessing one of the cooler names in baseball before throwing his first ever MLB pitch in a game that counts, San Diego Padres prospect Joey Lucchesi will get to make his debut Friday for the team in a move that has actionable status when it comes to the fantasy baseball community.  As far as Lucchesi is concerned, the 24-year-old was a fourth-round draft pick by the team in 2016 and he rose very quickly after a tremendous performance both at A-Ball (2.52 ERA) and Double-A (1.79 ERA) despite a fastball that mostly sits in the low-to-mid-90's. What makes Lucchesi so tough is that his offspeed offerings are already very polished as well.  Add in the terrific home ballpark and this could have some legs to it in terms of Lucchesi remaining viable for awhile in terms of fantasy baseball.  While we wouldn't throw him out there just yet since the season is literally two days old, Luchessi has enough upside and talent to be worth a speculative add.
