There is a prospect that if the San Diego Padres, which are gradually moving away from fall baseball, do not rebound by the end of this month, they will use reserve free agent pitchers as a trade card. 

USA Today Sports reported on the 17th (Korean time), “If San Diego is eliminated from the postseason race by the end of this month, it is expected to trade starter Blake Snell (31) and All-Star finisher Josh Hader (29).” told 

San Diego, who suffered a 6-7 final loss to the Philadelphia Phillies in the 12th inning overtime, fell into a pit of three consecutive losses. With a season record of 44 wins and 50 losses, they are 4th in the National League West and 6th in the Wild Card. 

They are 8 games behind the Arizona Diamondbacks (52-42), the 3rd place wild card that can advance to the postseason. There are 68 games left in the season, but it’s not easy in reality. If you look at the player composition, you can counterattack, but there are a lot of things you have forgotten so far. If it does not rebound by the end of this month, the possibility of becoming a ‘seller’ in the trade market, which is due by the 2nd of next month, is also being discussed. 

If San Diego gives up fall baseball, Hader, who will become a free agent at the end of this season, is a potential trade target. Hader, a left-handed fireballer who was transferred to San Diego from the Milwaukee Brewers at the trade deadline in early August of last year, recorded 154 saves and finished as a five-time All-Star.토토사이트주소

Hader, who is showing power with 52 strikeouts and 1.03 ERA with 1 loss and 22 saves in 37 games (35 innings) this year, said, “I hope not to be traded. Really. Our team still has work to do. Now is the time for us to compete. It’s easy to say that we can score 100 points per game with our lineup, but baseball has ups and downs.” 

With Manny Machado, the center hitter, coming back to life, San Diego’s batting line broke silence with the team’s 4th place in OPS (.807) in July, but recently the bullpen is uneasy. It is rapidly shaking with the 29th (7.75) ERA in salvation in July. All of the last 4 defeats have come from behind. On this day, Hader also made his fourth blown save of the season by allowing a timely hit to tie the game after being hit by Bryce Harper at the bottom of the 10th inning with 2nd out and 2nd base leading 6-5.
