Musgrove has been a popular sleeper the last two seasons and now that he's been traded to the Padres, his ADP is surely going to rise. In 2019, Musgrove continued to improve as a pitcher, upping his strikeout rate and adding velocity. But his 2020 season looked like a step back, until he returned from the IL strong, including finishing his season with back-to-back scoreless outings while getting back some of the lost zip on his fastball. Overall, Musgrove's 2020 numbers suggest a breakout waiting to happen, as he built significantly on his gains in 2019, increasing his strikeout rate to 33.1%. His chances for wins should improve dramatically in San Diego, and he's a fine fourth starter with upside.

Joe Musgrove being traded to San Diego Padres

Jeff Passan of ESPN reports the San Diego Padres are in agreement on a deal to acquire RHP Joe Musgrove from the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Fantasy Impact

Passan notes that the Pirates are receiving a "large package of prospects" in return. The headliner is reportedly 19-year-old center fielder Hudson Head. Musgrove was fantastic over his final four starts of 2020, posting a 34:5 K:BB ratio in 22 innings. An annual breakout candidate, Musgrove's move to San Diego will only heighten his appeal.
