Padres Trade Luke Gregerson for Seth Smith

Looks like the Padres are farming away their players again.

Luke Gregerson has been a shut down 8th in set up man for the Padres for the past couple years. He has played well in his limited role, so the Padres will miss him.

San Diego has generally done pretty well developing bullpen pitchers, so they should be fine.

With Seth Smith we get a shifty outfielder. He reminds me a lot like a majority of our utility outfielders. He has some strengths and some weaknesses and probably should not be thought of as a guy you lean on. He has some power that makes up for his .265 career batting average. He will give the Padres a majority of starts and between 10-15 homeruns. 

He might just be a role player on a team that tries to get their first winning season since 2010.
