MLBTR: Padres-Rays-Nationals Agree to Three-Team Trade

Young outfielder Wil Myers will head to San Diego as the centerpiece of the trade, and indeed the entire pact will depend upon the health of his balky wrist, Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports notes on Twitter. San Diego receives righty Gerardo Reyes and lefty Jose Castillo from Tampa as well. The Rays, in return, will receive Burch Smith and Jake Bauers. And the Pads and Rays will also swap catchers Ryan Hanigan and Rene Rivera.

Much of Tampa’s haul, however, will come from another source: the Nationals will send outfielder Steven Souza and young lefty Travis Ott to Tampa in exchange for righty Joe Ross and shortstop Trea Turner (as a PTBNL) , each of whom will head from the Padres to D.C. by way of Tampa.

Rays trade Matt Joyce to Angels in exchange for Kevin Jepsen

The Rays traded outfielder Matt Joyce to the Angels on Tuesday in exchange for reliever Kevin Jepsen….

Jepsen is 13-18 with a 3.94 ERA over seven seasons for the Angels. He had a career-high 75 strikeouts in 65 innings in 2014, while posting a career-low 2.63 ERA.

Pittsburgh Pirates acquire Antonio Bastardo from Phillies

The Battered Bastardo of Baseball.

The Phillies are close to sending Jimmy Rollins to the Dodgers, and according to Fox Sports’ Ken Rosenthal and MLB Daily Rumors’ Robert Murray, sent left-handed reliever Antonio Bastardo to the Pirates in exchange for minor league pitcher Joely Rodriguez.

Bastardo, 29, posted a 3.94 ERA and 3.10 FIP in 64 innings with the Phillies last season. He struck out 81, walked 34, and owns a career 3.72 ERA. Bastardo has been efficient in six major league seasons, all of which came with Philadelphia, and has proven he can get both left and right-handed hitters out (.211 BAA righties, .185 for lefties)....

In Rodriguez, the Phillies receive a player who can develop into a starter or reliever. He posted a 4.84 ERA in 31 starts with the Pirates’ Double-A affiliate, and was moved to the bullpen in July but was eventually slotted back into the rotation to end the season. His best season came in 2013, when he posted a 2.70 ERA in 26 starts.

Ken Rosenthal on Twitter: Red Sox obtain Wade Miley

Good deal for the Red Sox. Webster and De La Rosa have talent but really need to improve their command.

RedSox have agreement in principle for Diamondbacks Wade Miley, sources tell me and Jon Morosi. AZ will get Allen Webster, Rubby De La Rosa and a minor leaguer.

Royals trade reliever Aaron Crow to Miami for two minor leaguers

You know nothing, Crow.

Royals relief pitcher Aaron Crow, a Missouri grad from Topeka who was the team’s first-round draft pick in 2009, was traded to the Marlins for two minor-league pitchers, the club announced on Friday.

Crow, 28, was the 12th overall pick in the 2009 draft. He was the Royals’ All-Star representative in 2011.

He posted a 20-11 record and 3.43 ERA with six saves in 254 games, all out of the bullpen and mostly as a setup man, over four years in Kansas City. He went 6-1 with a 4.12 ERA and three saves in 67 relief appearances this year, but did not pitch in the postseason.

The Royals acquired left-handed starter Brian Flynn and right-handed reliever Reid Redman from Florida.
