Fantasy Impact:

Lin notes that Luis Patiño, Francisco Mejía, Blake Hunt, and Cole Wilcox are the prospects heading back to the Rays. Snell currently has three years and $39 million remaining on his contract, and he'll give the Padres a dangerous rotation entering the 2021 campaign. In 11 starts this year Snell posted a 3.24 ERA and a 1.20 WHIP. Pitching in San Diego should ultimately be a plus for his fantasy value, especially if the Padres let him go deeper into games than the Rays ever did.
