MLB: The three prospects asking the Padres to make changes

The San Diego Padres spoke at the time of Eric Hosmer with the Texas Rangers and Chicago Cubs on the trade deadline, with outfielder prospect Robert Hassell III reportedly as part of negotiations with Texas, as well as prospect catcher Luis Campusano, who was part of Hosmer’s conversations with Chicago.

However, the catch of such a trade is that while the Padres would lighten their salary burden, they would also be losing a controllable young player who is far more valuable to a team with such a lavish tax burden:

I am fond of the King of Sports, especially the Boston Red Sox in MLB and in general all of Mexican baseball. This profession has given me the opportunity to cover major events such as the Caribbean Series, the LMB All Star, LMP (uninterrupted since 2009), signings of important players. I had the chance to attend the 2013 World Classic in Arizona, USA, albeit as a fan. Apart from this beautiful sport, I love basketball, where I have also narrated games and even an NBA friendly 10 years ago, but I carry baseball in my veins. Graduated in Communication Sciences from the Autonomous University of Sinaloa (UAS) , from which I graduated in 2011. I was born in Mazatlán, Sinaloa and started in the world of sports journalism in 2004 in the newspaper El Sol de Mazatlán, where I was a baseball columnist and reporter at the same time. In January 2009 I came to El Debate as a journalist reporter and it was almost six years (in the first stage), until in November 2014 I emigrated to the radio providing my services in Línea Directa-Grupo RSN. My cycle there ended in July 2019 and within days, El Debate gave me another opportunity to work and opened the doors for me again. That is how I came to Al Bat, where I have been since 2019 as a web journalist.
