San Diego acquires Matt Strahm from Kansas City

The San Diego Padres have acquired pitchers Matt Strahm and Travis Wood along with infielder Esteury Ruiz in exchange for Trevor Cahill, Brandon Maurer, and Ryan Buchter from the Kansas City Royals.

What It Means:

The 25-year-old Strahm is perhaps the biggest piece the Padres are getting back in the six-player deal as the pitcher posted a 1.21 ERA and a 30 punchouts in 22 innings pitched last season. Strahm is currently out for the season after undergoing surgery on his left knee.

Through 24 appearances (including 3 starts) Strahm posted a 5.19 xFIP and 1.50 WHIP while striking out 37 batters in 34 2/3 innings pitched this season.
