Two teams who have made some significant deals – mainly the Padres – will face each other for the first time with their post-trade deadline rosters.
The team made some significant deals at the deadline, the most puzzling being the deal that sent two of their good prospects along with Francisco Liriano to the Blue Jays for minor-league pitcher Drew Hutchison.
They also sent closer Mark Melancon to the Nationals for Felipe Rivero, a promising young lefty in the minor league pen.
Ryan Vogelsong has been a decent major league pitcher, with a career 4.42 ERA and 1.40 WHIP. On the season, the 39-year old has a 3.25 ERA and 1.30 WHIP with 1-1 record in his 3 starts.
If the Pirates want to make a wildcard run, they’ll need a big turnaround from struggling star Andrew McCutchen.
San Diego Padres
San Diego completely disassembled their team around the deadline, and there’s surely more waiver trades to be made.
The most likely candidate to be moved in August is Derek Norris, but most wouldn’t be shocked to see aggressive GM A.J. Preller make a few deals.
Edwin Jackson will take to the hill with his 5.00 ERA and 1.50 WHIP on the year.
He is coming off a start where he went 8 innings and allowed just 8 hits and 3 runs, last week against the Brewers.
Overall, however, Jackson does not figure to be a quality starter going forward.
