We are less than 12 hours away from when teams have to submit arbitration offers to players. The Padres have two on the line in Heath Bell and Aaron Harang. And I love when I wake up to find so many stories pop up over night. Today is going to be a large post so without further ado here are your links for today:
Padres first trade of the offseason came yesterday - Padres Official
"In a move to add a left-handed bat and depth at the catching position, the Padres dealt left-handed pitcher Wade LeBlanc to the Marlins for catcher John Baker on Tuesday."
Padres Trail talks more on the trade and how they predicted it would happen
"Wade LeBlanc will likely not be long remembered. He was, however, a useful piece of the puzzle for the last 4 seasons, be it as a long reliever, a spot starter, or a regular starter due to injury. If he becomes a mainstay in the Marlin rotation I would be the first one in line to congratulate him on his success."
