Two rebuilding squads faceoff in San Diego, where both clubs could look drastically different come next week.
Jay Bruce remains one of the biggest names on the trade block who is likely to be dealt come Monday.
Bruce has smacked 25 homers and 79 RBI on the year, leading the Reds in both respective categories.
It been reported that Cincy hasn’t received any “serious offers” for Bruce as of yet, but that is likely to change and could actually just be leverage by the Reds for a greater return.
Anthony DeSclafani has been a great get for the Reds, coming over from the Marlins in 2014 and has put together two nice seasons.
The 26 year-old currently owns a 6-0 record in his 9 starts this year with a 3.09 ERA and a 1.25 WHIP with 46 Ks in 55.1 innings.
San Diego Padres
Matt Kemp was acquired from the Dodgers after the 2014 season when the San Diego Padres decided they were a contender.
While that hasn’t worked out and they’re tearing it down now, Kemp still holds some trade value despite his big contract (which the Padres will likely have to cover a large part of), with 23 homers and a .259 average this year.
Andrew Cashner and Colin Rea were just shipped to the Marlins in exchange for Jarred Cosart, Carter Capps and prospects, following a previous trade that sent Fernando Rodney to Miami as well.
Drew Pomeranz was recently dealt to the Red Sox for top prospect Anderson Espinoza and James Shields went to the White Sox, so the Padres pitching staff has been depleted.
Christian Friedrich will take to the hill with a 5.00 ERA and 4-6 record.
