ESPN Fantasy Projection: Widely regarded the No. 1 pitching prospect in baseball, Gore spent the summer of 2020 at the Padres' alternate training site, and as he has only 183 professional frames (and 21 2/3 as high as Double-A ball) on his arm, he'll likely begin 2021 in the minors. The Padres' restocking of their rotation practically guaranteed that, but as they say, rotation depth has a way of sorting itself out. Gore has four good offerings, a high-90s fastball, curveball, changeup and slider, which should allow him to dominate upper minor league competition and ease his transition to the majors. There's a good chance we'll see him at some point this summer, and he'll warrant an immediate add everywhere when it happens. Draft-wise, he's a top prospect for dynasty and keeper leagues, and his upside is enticing enough to make him a viable stash in leagues that draft fresh annually.
