  • Padres trade Casey Kelly and Ricardo Rodriguez

    The Padres shipped pitcher Casey Kelly, who has a 6.69 ERA in 40.1 big league innings, and minor league Ricardo Rodriguez, who is still a teenager, to the Atlanta Braves for Christian Bethancourt, who owns a .219 career batting average.

    The Christian Bethancourt era lasted a grand total of 80 games in Atlanta.

    The Braves traded Christian Bethancourt to the San Diego Padres on Thursday night in a three-player deal that netted them right-hander Casey Kelly and catching prospect Ricardo Rodriguez. Kelly, 26, is a former first-round pick who has bounced around the Padres and Red Sox farm systems while Rodriguez is a highly coveted 17-year-old catcher coming off his first professional season.
