San Diego Padres Organization Discussion

I am now working on the Los Angeles Dodgers prospect list. The next team in line is the Seattle Mariners, and you can find their organization discussion here.

The team after the Mariners is the San Diego Padres, so let's get their organization discussion started now. As usual, feel free to point out sleepers and argue about prospects, etc. Although it doesn't get as much attention as some organizations, the Padres farm system is in very good condition and has a lot of depth. There are players close to the majors (Rizzo, Kelly, Darnell, Decker, etc), there are intriguing long-term prospects (Fuentes, Liriano, Tate, Rincon, etc), there are pitchers, there are hitters, there are both possible stars and future role players. The major league team struggles on offense right now, so how would you go about integrating the available young hitters into the lineup?
