Good read on the Padres’ return on Craig Kimbrel. From the Padres’ perspective, here’s how it has worked out: they took on Melvin Upton Jr’s bloated contract and sent Cameron Maybin, Carlos Quentin (whom the Braves immediately released), and pitching prospect Matt Wisler to Atlanta. Eight months later, they receive prospects Manuel Margot, Javier Guerra, Carlos Asuaje, and Logan Allen.
Not bad, Preller. Not bad.
