The San Diego Padres and Milwaukee Brewers made some noise today as they made a trade. The Brewers sent outfielder Trent Grisham and pitcher Zach Davies to the Padres for shortstop Luis Urias and pitcher Eric Lauer.

Luis Urias is the prize for the Brewers as the former top prospect hit .305, with 28 homers in 196 Triple-A games. Last year in the majors, Urias only hit .223 while playing second base. The Brewers are going to move him to shortstop and are betting on his high potential. Milwaukee also acquired Eric Lauer to help out their rotation. Last year the 24 year old went 8-10, with a 4.45 ERA, and 138 strikeouts.
In return the Padres received Trent Grisham who was one of the Brewers top prospects before he was promoted to the majors last season. Last season, in 156 at bats he hit .236, with six homers, and 24 RBI’s. He filled in for Christian Yelich in right field when the later went done with his injury. Grisham joins a crowded Padres outfield but brings young and upside. Davies gives the Padres another young pitcher to add to the rotation. Last season he went 10-7 with a 3.55 ERA, and 102 strikeouts. Depending on the other moves the Padres make, he will slot in as the fourth or fifth starter.
