Padres To Acquire Jorge Alfaro
7:31 pm: The Marlins announced they were receiving a player to be named later.
7:18 pm: San Diego is sending back a player to be named later or cash considerations, reports AJ Cassavell of MLB.com (Twitter link).
As Morosi pointed out, Alfaro was originally signed by the Rangers as an amateur out of Colombia back in 2010. Current San Diego president of baseball operations A.J. Preller was a high-ranking member of the Texas scouting department at that time. Alfaro becomes the latest in a line of one-time Rangers’ players or staff members Preller has struck to bring to San Diego.
More to come.
