Report: Padres aggressively pursuing starting pitching help

Padres logo

It’s a good market to be pursuing a starting pitcher, and the San Diego Padres reportedly want in on it.

According to Mark Feinsand of MLB.com, the Padres “are trying to be aggressive” in their efforts to acquire a starter, just as they were in unsuccessful pursuits for a frontline starter during the offseason.

The Padres may look for controllable starters given where they’re at as an organization. Their only realistic chance of getting into the playoffs this season is through a wild card, and they’re five games back. It makes sense, then, that they’d be heavily linked to Cleveland’s Trevor Bauer, who is potentially available and would have another full season of team control left, setting San Diego up for a potential run at contention in 2020.
