MLB Rumors: Padres Shopping Pitcher

According to Dennis Lin, the San Diego Padres have been having trade talks centering around Dinelson Lamet. 

Lamet is coming off of a bit of a down year, as he had a 2-4 record and 4.40 ERA in 22 games. This season also hasn't been the best for him, as he has an even higher 5.40 ERA in seven bullpen appearances. Yet, when looking at his past success, there is reason to believe that he could bounce back. This, in turn, could lead to teams calling.

Lamet's 2020 campaign was his best, however. In 12 starts with the Padres, he had a 3-1 record to go along with a 2.09 ERA. If he could show signs of this form again, he could be a sweet addition to another team. Alas, we will have to wait and see what happens with him from here.
