  • Padres drawing trade interest in Margot
    According to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal and Jon Morosi, the Padres are drawing trade interest in prospect outfielder Manuel Margot.

    Advice: Margot, 21, was just acquired from the Red Sox this month in the Craig Kimbrel deal. Padres general manager A.J. Preller has shown that he likes to wheel and deal, but one source told Rosenthal that the odds are 80-20 against a trade. It would take another high impact player/prospect for the Padres to even consider the possibility. Today, 10:14 am
