Per Scott Miller of Bleacher Report, the Padres are ready to sell. They’ll use their four-game set against the Marlins as their last chance to cover some ground and head into the trade deadline as buyers instead.
The Padres entered play Saturday night with a 45-52 record, putting them in fourth place in the NL West. They were pundits’ sexy pick to win the division or at least win one of the two Wild Card slots following a busy offseason, but they’ve failed to live up to expectations.
Players the Padres could trade include Justin Upton, Ian Kennedy, Andrew Cashner, Tyson Ross, James Shields, and Craig Kimbrel.
