MLB: Why should the Padres trade Eric Hosmer or Wil Myers or both?

The expense of San Diego Padres It will likely be limited to some extent, as it has “difficulty seeing the Padres take on another close to nine-figure contract,” while the first baseman deals Eric Hosmer and gardener Wil Myers they are still on the Friars’ payroll.

Both Hosmer and Myers have been mentioned in trade rumors for over a year, as Californians have looked for creative ways to offload the high salary of either player:

Hosmer, who is the most expensive of the duo, is owed $ 59MM through the 2025 season, while Myers is owed $ 21MM in 2022 ($ 20MM in salary and a $ 1MM purchase of a $ 1M club option). 20MM by 2023).

There are many moving parts in this off-season. Removing at least one of Hosmer or Myers from the books could open up a lot of possibilities for the Padres, who have already been linked to such notable free agents as Nick Castellanos and Kris Bryant.

While this interest could have just been due diligence, it indicates that San Diego is at least signing up to see what it would do to add another expensive, top-notch name to the roster.

There has been much speculation that the Padres could try to trade Hosmer or Myers by including a top prospect in the deal, as a rebuilding team with payroll space might be willing to eat up some salary to essentially buy a league player. under first class.

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.
