Snell moves to the Padres fresh off a solid year, in which he pitched to a 3.24 ERA and a 1.20 WHIP, with a memorable early exit in the World Series. Snell has a checkered injury history and has pitched just 157 innings over the past two years, so don't expect him to be a big innings-eater in 2021. And, although he'll escape the dreaded AL East, he'll get a downgrade in park and defense, which largely makes the move a neutral one. All that said, Snell has plenty of talent as he's shown throughout his career, and should be able to pile up wins and strikeouts pitching for a strong Padres team. Draft him as an SP2 with upside.

Blake Snell reportedly being traded to Padres

Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports the Padres have an agreement in place to acquire LHP Blake Snell from the Rays.

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.
