The Padres acquire Jabari Blash from Seattle for PTBNL

San Diego Padres OF Jabari Blash

Before the season began, the San Diego Padres acquired OF Jabari Blash via the Rule 5 draft from the Seattle Mariners. As per MLB rules, Blash was to be kept on the team’s active roster for the entire season or he would be sent back to the Mariners.

Last week, with the Padres waiving Blash, it seemed the wheels were in motion for him to return to his original team. However, the Padres announced today that they have agreed to send a player to be named later to the Mariners in exchange for keeping Blash in the organization.

Jabari will be assigned to the Triple-A El Paso Chihuahuas to get regular at-bats, but could return to the Padres’ MLB active roster before the end of the season.

In his first stint in the majors, Jabari Blash hit .120 with a .241 on-base percentage as a backup outfielder for the 2016 Padres.
