PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) -- The San Diego Padres bolstered their rotation on Sunday, acquiring left-hander Sean Manaea in a alternate with the Oakland Athletics.
San Diego bought the 30-year-venerable Manaea and minor league apt-hander Aaron Holiday from Oakland for pitching prospect Adrian Martinez and minor league infielder Euribiel Angeles.
Manaea went 11-10 with a 3.91 ERA in 32 starts last year. He had two shutouts and struck out a profession-excessive 194 batters, ranking eighth in the American League.
The addition of Manaea will also lead to 1 other transfer for San Diego, which used to be already flush with starting up pitching sooner than the alternate with Oakland.
The A's are rebuilding after going 86-76 last year, lacking the playoffs for doubtlessly the vital time since 2017. Enticing-hander Chris Bassitt, slugging first baseman Matt Olson and third baseman Matt Chapman were traded last month.
Martinez conducted for Double-A San Antonio and Triple-A El Paso last year, going 8-5 with a 3.38 ERA in 26 games, 22 starts. The apt-hander completed with 122 strikeouts in 125 innings.
Martinez, 25, neglected the 2016 season following Tommy John surgical treatment and the 2020 season attributable to the pandemic.
Angeles conducted for Low-A Lake Elsinore and Excessive-A Castle Wayne last year, batting .329 with four homers, 64 RBIs and 19 stolen bases in 105 games. The 19-year-venerable apt-handed hitter used to be signed by the Padres out of the Dominican Republic in 2018.
Manaea used to be selected by Kansas City in doubtlessly the vital round of the 2013 amateur draft. He used to be traded to Oakland in the July 2015 deal that moved Ben Zobrist to the Royals.
Manaea is 50-41 with a 3.86 ERA and 641 strikeouts in 129 profession games, including 128 starts, in six seasons. He agreed to a $9.75 million, one-year contract last month, fending off arbitration.
Holiday, 21, used to be selected by Oakland in the 13th round of the 2021 amateur draft. He went 2-0 with a 0.00 ERA in three reduction appearances with the A's affiliate in the Arizona Complex League last year.
