San Diego hasn't seen a flurry like this one since Dec. 13, 1967. That was the last time a measurable amount of snow hit the city. This time, thanks to the wheeling and dealing of Padres general manager A.J. Preller, it's a flurry of baseball players.
In a series of six transactions, including a seven-player trade with the Mariners and a nine-player trade with the Indians, Preller brought in nine new players to the Padres (plus a player to be named later) while trading away 14 (and two players to be named later). The biggest deal came a few hours before Monday's 4 p.m. ET trade deadline when Preller acquired Mike Clevinger to give the Padres a top-of-the-rotation starter to add an already solid group. Preller also picked up two catchers, a DH and two guys named Austin.
The final tally:
Out: Cal Quantrill, Austin Hedges, Josh Naylor, Ty France, Luis Torrens, Andres Munoz, Taylor Trammell, Gabriel Arias, Edward Olivares, Owen Miller, Joey Cantillo, Gerardo Reyes, Hudson Potts, Jeisson Rosario, two PTBNLs
