It is official the Padres have acquired SS Jason Bartlett and a PTBNL for four prospects. They also signed 2B Orlando Hudson to a two year deal worth 9.5 million dollar deal with a mutual option of eight million dollars with a two million dollar buyout and acquired 2B/OF Eric Patterson to complete the Gonzalez deal.
Bartlett: See previous post.
Hudson: He will add some coolness and fun to the clubhouse. Not to mention a little bit of pop and decent defense at a thin position. PP .290 8 HR 25 SB
Patterson: He will fill Jerry Hairston Jr.’s role as the utility man. .300 100 AB’s 8HR 10 SB
Brandon Gomes: He is the biggest part of this deal and will be missed.
Adam Russell: He will pitch in the 8th inning.
Cole Figueroa: He is a very good UTIL man at worst.
Cesar Ramos: Pretty good waiver wire type.
PTBNL- He will be the key to this trade and I am hoping for John Jaso, a catcher.
Bartlett- A+ to a C-
