Acquiring Jimenez would take a trade with Cleveland. And the Indians seem ready to discuss a trade involving Jimenez. But what would it take? And what are the Padres offering?
The Padres have depth at the corner outfield slots, in the bullpen and at middle infield. The names most often mentioned as possible trade chips are relief pitchers Luke Gregerson and Joe Thatcher and outfielder-first baseman Jesus Guzman.
Setup man Gregerson and left-handed specialist Thatcher are two key members of the Padres bullpen. But both are arbitration eligible and the Padres have alternate candidate at both slots. Some teams, particularly in the American League, like Guzman for his prowess against left-handed pitching as a platoon player or designated hitter. The Padres believe Kyle Blanks and James Darnell, who also have health issues, could cover the loss of Guzman.
The Padres also have some attractive prospects. But Byrnes is hesitant to start trading from a talented but still shallow farm system.
