Padres Rumors: Significant Move On the Horizon?

There is no way that San Diego Padres general manager Josh Byrnes exits the offseason with the addition of free agent Jason Marquis being his only “significant move,” a rival executive told Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports.

One rival executive says there is no chance that general manager Josh Byrnes completes his off-season with the addition of free-agent right-hander Jason Marquis as his only significant move.

Rosenthal notes that if the Padres are to make another significant addition this winter, it’s unlikely to come from the free agent market. San Diego believes their young starting pitchers can post similar numbers to veterans such as Joe Saunders at a fraction of the price.

While they’re not expected to enter back into the free agent market, Rosenthal says the Padres could still trade for a pitcher. He lists Detroit Tigers’ Rick Porcello, Kansas City Royals’ Luke Hochevar or Los Angeles Dodgers’ Aaron Harang as possible targets for the club.

  1. The Padres Organization is a complete bore. Yawn. If the Padres stopped existing tomorrow, would anybody notice?

    1. I feel like this comment is coming from someone who knows me and just wants to hurt me! I care about the Padres. A lot.
