The 34-year-old Darvish recorded 2.01 ERA last season and finished second in the National League Cy Young Awards vote. He is also under the control of the team for three more seasons and has a debt of $ 62 million. Darvish has established itself as one of the game’s top arms over eight seasons in the Big League, scoring 3.47 ERA with 11.1 strikes per nine innings.
If the Padres can complete the deal with Darvish and Snell, they can be given a front-facing 2021 rotation as follows:
Of course, this does not include high-end pitching prospects MacKenzie Gore And Ryan weathersAnd it’s worth noting that right-handed Mike Clevinger will return from Tommy John’s surgery in the 2022 season.
In addition to their rotation coup, Padres also agreed to a deal With infielder Kim Ha-seong, According to sources. Kim hit .306 / .397 / .523 with 30 home runs in South Korea last season, but is likely to be a super-utility option in the infield and outfield.
The three moves take place in a row, showing the latest signs that general managers AJ Preller and Padres are not happy with their glory. Even in the wake of Clevinger’s injury, San Diego may be ready for the 2021 season with an upgraded rotation.
Darvish and Praler have a history dating back to the time they spent together in the Rangers organization. In this way, the pursuit of Praler’s Darvish is natural.
