    Deal Per Ken Rosenthal. Only difference is the PTBNL headed to Cleveland.

    • John Bitzer

      Thanks for posting. This is one is well within range.

      Note: We docked Arias a bit because he is Rule 5-eligible this year. Clearly if Cleveland is trading for him, they’ll add him to their 40, in which case his value will go up to 11.3. That fills the gap here to make this one even closer, to 38.0 going to the Indians.

      • John Bitzer

        Also, there’s a rumor that the PTBNL is minor-league reliever Matt Waldron, who is not in our system. Typically guys like him who are not considered prospects have a value of either zero or 0.1. In other words, he would not be considered a difference-maker in this deal.

        • Erik Jager

          Why did the Padres gut their farm system of all the petty good prospects but not elite? Do you think that the Padres can beat the Dodgers in the 2020 to 2022 seasons? The Dodgers will get hit with large luxury tax penalties, which have crippled my beloved Red Sox. This trade should be a no-brainer for the Indians.

          • John Bitzer

            Because their GM, A.J. Preller, was told by his boss to win or else he’d get fired. Plus, he’s trading from excess. Too many young players, not enough places to put them. Easily expendable.

          • Jason Remigio III

            He would not say fire him because he’s built a large farm system. The Indians asking price was high they wanted major leaguers in return for Mike Clevinger. He would have not been made available if he didn’t violate health protocols. JohnBlitzer your not an executive who works in baseball. You comment on a lot of trades from different teams

    The fact that Preller was able to get Clevinger without giving up Patino, Abrams, Campusano? Padres easily the winners of the deadline so far.

  3. So I guess Cleveland would trade Clevinger.
    By the way the asking price was two of Garcia/Schmidt/Frazier from Yanks.
    Just saying.

  4. Jason Remigio III

    Padres are also getting a player to be named later. This trade very accurate and similar to the real one. Clevinger has been doing well the past few seasons. One of the best pitchers in the game.
