    Padres Acquire Wil Myers

    The Padres, Rays, and Nationals have agreed to a much-anticipated three-team swap — pending physical — that will deliver important pieces to and from each club, Jim Bowden of ESPN.com reports on Twitter. A rough structure of the deal seemed to have taken form in recent hours, and Bowden has reported its final contours in a series of tweets (links: 1, 2, 3, 4.)

    MLB: New York Yankees at Tampa Bay Rays

    Young outfielder Wil Myers will head to San Diego as the centerpiece of the trade, and indeed the entire pact will depend upon the health of his balky wrist, Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports notes on Twitter. San Diego receives young hurlers Gerardo Reyes and Jose Castillo from Tampa as well. Big league catcher Ryan Hanigan will also go to the Friars.

    Heading to Tampa from San Diego are backstop Rene Rivera, righty Burch Smith, and first base prospect Jake Bauers. Much of Tampa’s haul, however, will come from another source: the Nationals will send outfielder Steven Souza and young lefty Travis Ott to Tampa.

    For the Nationals, their involvement in this complicated transaction nets them a pair of young players. Righty Joe Ross and shortstop Trea Turner (as a PTBNL) will each head from the Padres to D.C. by way of Tampa.

    Unpacking this deal is not easy, but it certainly begins with Myers — not only the marquee piece of this trade, but also the key player in the deal that sent James Shields to the Royals two years ago. Since that time, Myers has had one year of immense promise and one injury-marred, unproductive season. There is risk, not least of which because Myers missed significant time with a wrist injury, but then again San Diego is adding a potentially premier hitter who only just turned 24 years of age and still has five years of control.

    Middle of that lineup with Kemp and Myers could be fun for years to come in San Diego

    Years to come? Kemp is already in a decline IMO, and going to San Diego isn't going to help his numbers. The dude had a 0.5 and 1.1 WAR over the last two years, and can't stay healthy.

    It's no coincidence that the Dodgers have been trying to get rid of him for two years...

    I'm interested to see what Preller will do with the glut of outfielders we have....Seems as if Seth Smith is heading to Seattle...

    I believe 1 more big deal could be in the cards with either Wisler or Hahn being used to get a big 1B or a 3B bat....

    PRELLER is super aggressive I love it...
