Padres Trade Drew Pomeranz To The Red Sox
This is a one-for-one deal, the Padres’ best starting pitcher this year, Drew Pomeranz, for a top-flight pitching prospect in Anderson Espinoza. The 18-year old has a 4.38 ERA this year at the Single-A minor league level. This mimics some of what the team got back for Fernando Rodney, adding a young pitching prospect that could be in the Padres’ starting rotation in two or three years.

Dennis Lin of the UT joins Kevin Acee to talk all about the Drew Pomeranz to Boston story and what else could be in store for the Padres as the trade deadline approaches.

Padres might continue to sell at Trade Deadline –
Now, Preller and Co. have a chance to add talent via trades. Catcher Derek Norris, who has two years of team control remaining after this season, figures to be a prime trade chip. Meanwhile, Andrew Cashner and Jon Jay are both in the final year of their contracts.

Despite a small fracture in Jay’s right forearm that has ruled him out for July, the Padres are still receiving phone calls from interested parties. Fellow outfielders Matt Kemp and Melvin Upton Jr. possess burdensome contracts but could undoubtedly help a contender, making them candidates to be dealt as well.

Five Players The Padres Could Move Before The Trade Deadline
Yangervis Solarte is controllable through the 2019 season, but will be 32 by then. For a Padres team that is trying to get younger and build for the future, there’s really no reason to keep him.

Phil Mickelson’s 63 Proves Golf Can Provide Best, and Worst, of Times –
Most sports have some version of the so-called white whale. It’s the four-minute mile (track), or 12 straight strikes (bowling), or the “perfect game” (baseball). Golf’s version of this, shooting 62 in a major, as Mickelson would have done had his 16-footer for birdie fallen at the last hole Thursday, hadn’t been done. Ever.

    What is AJ doing–a major league lefty with the best BA against in the NL for an 18 year old single A player–I don’t care how good of a prospect this kid is, this is a terrible deal–he should have waited–teams are desperate for starters–a deal like this you have got to get at least three top tier prospects

  2. John Gennaro

    There’s no way anybody was going to give up three top tier prospects for Drew Pomeranz. Do you remember who Drew Pomeranz was before this season started?
