As multiple sources have reported on Thursday afternoon, the San Diego Padres have traded starter Drew Pomeranz to the Boston Red Sox.
This is the third star pitcher they have dealt in 2016, joining James Shields and Fernando Rodney.
In return for the vaunted ace, the Padres will receive 18-year-old star Red Sox pitching prospect Anderson Espinoza.
Espinoza joins several other newly acquired young pitchers, including No. 8 overall pick Cal Quantrill and Chris Paddack.
