Padres, Nats, Rays announce Wil Myers trade
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

The Padres officially announced an 11-player, three-team trade that sent Wil Myers from Tampa Bay to San Diego on Friday, per the team's official website.

San Diego acquired Myers, catcher Ryan Hanigan, left-handed pitcher Jose Castillo and right-handed pitcher Gerardo Reyes from the Rays. Tampa Bay received catcher Rene Rivera, right-handed pitcher Burch Smith and infielder Jake Bauers from San Diego and outfielder Steven Souza and left-handed pitcher Travis Ott from Washington. Meanwhile, the Nationals received right-handed pitcher Joe Ross and a player to be named later, likely infielder Trea Turner, per CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

Padres, Rays and Nationals complete Wil Myers trade
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

The Padres, Rays and Nationals have completed a trade that will send Wil Myers to San Diego, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

The deal had been in the works for a few days, but was finally agreed to late Thursday night. Myers, 24, will head to the Padres in the deal. He hit .222/.294/.320 over 325 at-bats with the Rays last season. Myers also missed time due to a wrist injury. 

The Padres will also receive catcher Ryan Hanigan and pitchers Gerardo Reyes and Jose Castillo in the deal. 

Tampa Bay will receive outfielder Steven Souza and pitcher Travis Ott from the Nationals. Souza, 25, hit .345/.427/.577 in 357 at-bats spread over three levels last year. 

The Rays will also receive catcher Rene Rivera, first baseman Jake Bauers and pitcher Burch Smith from San Diego.

Washington is set to acquire pitcher Joe Ross from San Diego. The team will also receive infielder Trea Turner in the deal. Turner was a 2014 draft pick, and cannot be traded until midseason, so he's currently considered a player to be named later.

Padres, Rays and Nationals on the verge of three-team deal
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

The Nationals, Padres and Rays are on the verge of a three-team deal, which would send outfielder Wil Myers to San Diego, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. 

Heyman has confirmed the multiple media reports outlining the full details of the trade. The Padres are set to receive Myers, catcher Ryan Hanigan, pitcher Gerardo Reyes and pitcher Jose Castillo from the Rays.

The Rays are getting two players from the Nationals -- outfielder Steven Souza and pitcher Travis Ott -- and three players from the Padres -- catcher Rene Rivera, first baseman Jake Bauers and pitcher Burch Smith.

The Nationals are getting pitcher Joe Ross from the Padres, as well as a player to be named later, which will be shortstop prospect Trea Turner. Because Turner was a 2014 draft pick, he can't be traded until June.

Rene Rivera on roll and in lineup for Padres
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Rene Rivera has earned nine starts in the last 12 games for the Padres - and that level of playing time is likely to continue.

That's the word from Bud Black, per the San Diego Union-Tribune.

"He's been swinging good," Black said. "His average is over .250. All year long, he's been a bright spot, and he's worked his way into regular playing time. He deserves to play."

Rivera, who has nine home runs and 33 RBI in just 229 at-bats this season, has been particularly hot since the All-Star break, after which he boasts a stat line of .304/.387/.446 with three home runs and 11 RBI.
