Rays/Padres/Nationals reportedly agree to 11 player deal

New, comments

Tampa, San Diego and Washington have apparently agreed to a massive, 11 player trade this evening

Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

The Rays, the Padres and the Nationals have, according to Jim Bowden, agreed to a convoluted 11 player trade that is headlined by former Ray, now Padre outfielder Wil Myers.

Along with Myers, the Padres are also receiving catcher Ryan Hanigan, pitcher Jose Castillo, and pitcher Gerardo Reyes, all from the Rays.

The Rays are getting catcher Rene Rivera, pitcher Burch Smith, and first baseman Jake Bauers from the Padres, as well as outfielder Steven Souza and pitcher Travis Ott from the Nationals.

The Nationals, meanwhile, get pitcher Joe Ross from the Padres, as well as a player to be named later, reportedly shortstop Trea Turner, who was the Padres' first round pick in the 2014 draft, and thus can't be officially traded until June.

I have no idea who won or lost this deal.  I do think it is interesting that Myers has been shipped out yet again, two years after he was sent from Kansas City to Tampa in the James Shields trade.  And the Padres are now loaded up with outfielders, and the Rangers might be in a position to pick up someone like Seth Smith from San Diego, given that they'll likely be looking to move at least one outfielder.
