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.

Jordan Zimmermann looking for 'fair' deal from Nationals
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Nationals starting pitcher Jordan Zimmermann sounds optimistic about negotiations regarding a long-term contract, but added there is still a lot of discussion left after the two sides met at the Winter Meetings last week.

"I’m hopeful, but we got a lot of talking to do," Zimmermann said, per The Washington Post. "Obviously we’ve only had one meeting so far and it went well. We’ll see where it goes."

Although, it doesn't appear Zimmermann is willing to cave in negotiations just because Washington is the only team he has known since being drafted in the second round in 2007.

"If it’s a fair value, like I have said all along, I would gladly sign," Zimmermann said. "But at the end of the day, it’s gotta be something that’s fair and if it’s not, then I’ll be moving on.

"I’m a National for one year, for this upcoming season, and we’ll see if it’s a fair, if we can come up with something that’s fair for both sides, then we’ll sign the deal. At the end of the day, it’s gotta be fair."
