Trade rumors in Major League Baseball have the San Diego Padres sending Chris Paddack to the Minnesota Twins. Emilio Pagan will be traded to the Minnesota Twins, while the Padres acquire closers Taylor Rogers and Brent Rooker.
Paddack was drafted by Miami in the eighth round of the 2015 NFL Draft from Cedar Park High School in Austin. When the Padres acquired him from the Marlins for Fernando Rodney a year later, he was largely unknown.
While playing for the Padres in 2016, Rodney had a 0.31 ERA in 28.2 innings, but after being moved, his record went from 0.89 to 5.89 in 36.2 innings with the Marlins.
Before being diagnosed with a damaged UCL and forced to have Tommy John surgery, Paddack participated in just three games for the Padres.
On the other hand, his breakout season in 2018 saw him finish second on most offseason rankings after posting a 2.10 ERA in 90 innings over 17 starts between high-A and AA.
With the Padres, Paddack started the 2019 season with a 1.55 ERA in his first seven outings as a major leaguer. His final 19 outings saw him post an ERA of 4.05 and a FIP of 4.58, indicating some trouble.
Paddack failed to live up to expectations in 2020-21, posting a 4.95 ERA (despite a 4.22 FIP) in 34 starts and 167.1 innings of relief work.
As soon as the Padres acquired Sean Manaea, rumors of an exit for Paddack began to circulate, but his stock had fallen due to the fact that he had just three years left on his contract and a lackluster season the previous two years.
The Padres acquire a lefty reliever with closing experience in Taylor Rogers, who was great from 2017-19, but saw his ERA rise in 2020 and only worked in 40 games in 2021, even though he was nominated to the American League All-Star team. San Diego is renting Rogers, who will be a free agent following the 2022 season.
