The Padres, the most active of MLB teams this off season, have made another move. The Pads traded Seth Smith to Seattle for Brandon Mauer. Smith became an extra piece, after the acquistions of Matt Kemp, Wil Myers and Justin Upton. The Padres received 24 year old Brandon Mauer from The Mariners. Mauer reinvented himself as a reliever in 2014. Mauer throws hard. He is the second reliver that Preller has acquired this week. The Padres got Shawn Kelly in a trade with The Yankees.
