The San Diego Padres continue to make moves with both Adrian Morejon and Michel Baez expected to be promoted to the major leagues.

Both Morejon and Baez are among the best prospects in baseball.

Morejon and Baez are joining in-fielder Luis Urias, who was recently recalled to the roster. At 20 years old, Morejon is the Padres' No. 4 prospect and played his way into the Top 50 prospect rankings for all of baseball. Morejon posted a 4.25 ERA in 16 games with the Amarillo Sod Poodles this year.

Baez on the other hand, is a little bit older at 23, and with age comes experience. Baez has shown signs of wear and tear, starting this season on IL. In 15 games with Amarillo, the Cuban native racked up a 2.00 ERA with a 3-2 record.

The Padres sit at a measly 46-52 -- tied for last in the NL West -- and are looking to their youth to spark something. Here's to hoping the youngsters can deliver in their promotion in the big leagues.
