Sunday evening, the Padres agreed to a trade to acquire Blake Snell from Tampa Bay. Tonight, they are finalizing another deal to add Yu Darvish from the Cubs. Quite the 24 hours for A.J. Preller & Co.
So what rotation pieces are left on the free agent and trade markets? I took a look in the video below.
This free agent class was pretty soft in terms of starting pitching, but it was further weakened when Marcus Stroman and Kevin Gausman accepted their qualifying offers. Now that Lance Lynn, Snell and Darvish have all been dealt, the trade market has also been thinned out.
Here's another look at the list included in the video:
