The Tampa Bay Rays were involved in a three team deal today, pending physicals, trading OF Wil Myers, C Ryan Hanigan, and minor leaguers to the Padres. Key players in return include OF Steven Souza from the Nationals, C Rene Rivera and RHP Burch Smith from the Padres. (Source: ESPN)

P Burch Smith will likely spend most the season in the AAA Durham rotation.
