PHOENIX, AZ: The San Diego Padres are nearing a deal to acquire second baseman Luis Arraez from the Miami Marlins for a package of three prospects and a relief pitcher, per Jeff Passan of ESPN.


The return back to Miami is Dillion Head, Woo Suk-Go, Nathan Martorella, and Jacob Marsee.


Luis Arraez’s name has popped up in trade rumors for quite some time now. With Miami being on the cusp of another long rebuild, Arraez’s talent was not expected to remain in South Beach much longer.


Arraez, a two-time All-Star, has taken home the league batting crown in each of the previous two years. With 10 home runs and 69 RBI in Miami last season, he slashed .354/.393/.469, all career highs. With a slash line of .316/.375/.420 while playing for the Minnesota Twins in 2022, he earned the AL hitting title.


In 2024, Arraez is slashing .299/.347/.372 and is showing his contact skills with a whopping zero home runs on the year. Arraez is without a doubt the game’s best contact hitter and shows it each and every year. Adding his bat to an already scary San Diego lineup, is quite the recipe for the Padres.


Dillon Head is the headliner heading back to Miami. A 19-year old OF prospect who has spent his 2024 in A-Lake Elsinore. Head was a first round pick in last year’s draft and is batting .237 this season. A overall modest return for the Marlins.
