Weathers, an 18-year-old from Loretto, Tennessee, who was selected by the Padres with the 7th overall pick in June’s draft, will start for the TinCaps tonight (7:05 p.m.) in Midland, Michigan, against the Dodgers-affiliated Great Lakes Loons. Weathers, the son of former major leaguer David Weathers, is the reigning Gatorade National Baseball Player of the Year. MLB.com rates him as the No. 9 prospect in San Diego’s farm system.
