Two of the best pitchers in baseball made their debuts for teams that are expected to be competing for a division title in the National League West. Former American League Cy Young award winner, Blake Snell, came over to the San Diego Padres from the defending AL champs in a blockbuster trade back in December. And the reigning National League Cy Young winner, Trevor Bauer, signed a three-year $102 million contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers in February.
2018 AL Cy Young Winner Blake Snell & 2020 NL runner up Yu Darvish are reportedly headed to San Diego in two separate multi-player deals, according to The Athletic. The deal for Snell would include the Padres sending Luis Patino, Francisco Mejia, Cole Wilcox and Blake Hunt to the Rays. Following Darvish from Chicago to the Padres includes catcher Victor Caratini for hurler Zach Davies and prospects Yeison Santana, Ismael Mena and Reginald Preciado.
