Like Moreland, Castro has been steady but unspectacular throughout his career. He adds a veteran presence to a team that’s in uncharted territory pushing for a playoff bid?and should be an offensive upgrade at the position?playing alongside newly acquired Austin?Nola. He almost never hits for average but does draw walks and provides decent pop.
The initial reaction to the trade with the Mariners headlined by?Nola has been skepticism toward the Padres. They parted with intriguing pieces to add Nola and two relievers,?one of whom is coming off a serious injury while the other is?carrying a 7.71 ERA.
From San Diego’s perspective, it’s clear there was concern that?the catcher position might sink its potential. Along with Castro, Nola could make the team’s options behind the plate a strength. He didn’t make his MLB debut until last year when he turned 29, but he has been an excellent?hitter since that breakthrough. He has?hit 15 home runs in 108 career games with an .827 OPS. He can also play the infield, giving him versatility most backstops lack.
Adams had reconstructive ACL surgery in February but is supposed to return by the end of the 2020 season. He has?been nasty when healthy, averaging?nearly 15 strikeouts?per nine innings.
Altavilla has been healthy but notably less nasty. His 6.49 ERA since the start of 2019 is not attractive, but better work earlier in his career with the Mariners perhaps gives San Diego hope it can bump him in the right direction.
Mike Clevinger is an ace under contract through 2022 who should lift the Padres’ rotation from respectable to fearsome far beyond this year. The 29-year-old comes with a career 3.20 ERA and the elite season-to-season consistency.
He does have some character concerns that made him expendible for Cleveland. He?broke?COVID-19 protocol by sneaking out of the team’s hotel in Chicago and was?dishonest?about it afterward, leading him to be temporarily optioned to Indians satellite camp.
Quantrill, who before his 2019 promotion was a top-100 prospect,?is probably going to be a solid?MLB player for a long time either as a starter or reliever. Naylor is 23 and already producing league-average numbers at the plate, which bodes well for him possibly progressing into an everyday player?in Cleveland. Hedges is a quality defender behind the plate but might not be able to figure things out enough in the batter’s box to be much of an asset moving forward. Olivares, Torrens?and France?have MLB experience but are not projected to develop beyond role players.
The Padres lost a consensus top-100 MLB prospect in?Trammell, whom they received from the Reds in a three-team trade in?July 2019. Arias is on the edge of top-100 status, ranked No. 94 by Baseball Prospectus entering 2020. The club?also parted with?Munoz, a power arm?who seemed destined for a long-term spot in its?bullpen before he tore?his UCL this year.
San Diego sent?Potts, their first-round draft pick in 2016, and Rosario?to the Red Sox, losing possible upside for certain near-term production. Both players?struggled at the plate last season and are far from the MLB level. Cantillo, sent to the Indians, has impressed in the lower minors but still has a lot to prove. Miller is at risk of losing his prospect shine completely following a lost 2020; he was already old for his level at Double-A last year.
Probably. It would take a?meltdown for San Diego not to make the postseason, especially after gaining the above reinforcements. While it’s difficult to see the Padres beating out the Dodgers for first place in the NL West,?settling in behind LA would be an acceptable outcome for a franchise that’s?trying to taste October baseball for the first time since 2006.
