Pitcher Enyel De Los Santos signed with the Seattle Mariners before the 2015 season as an amateur free agent. The scouts were Eddy Toledo and Domingo Toribio. In his first year in the pros, he went a combined 6-0, 3.47 in 13 starts between the AZL Mariners and Everett AquaSox of the Northwest League. He pitched 62 1/3 innings and struck out 71 while walking 18. On November 12th that year, he was traded to the San Diego Padres along with Nelson Ward in return for veteran major league reliever Joaquin Benoit.
In his first season in the Padres organization in 2016, Enyel went 8-5, 3.72 in 26 games between the Fort Wayne Wizards of the Midwest League and the Lake Elsinore Storm of the California League. In 2017, he was promoted to the AA Texas League with the San Antonio Missions and had another strong season: in 26 games (24 starts), he pitched 150 innings, struck out 138 batters and put up a record of 10-6, 3.78. On December 15th, he was involved in the second major trade of his young career, being sent to the Philadelphia Phillies in return for veteran SS Freddy Galvis.
He was named to the World team for the 2018 Futures Game, but before he could play in the game, he was called up by Philadelphia to make his debut on July 10, 2018. He also had to give up starting the AAA All-Star Game for the International League to make the trip to the Show, but it was worth it as he defeated the New York Mets, 7-3, allowing 3 runs in 6 1/3 innings.
