Miami Marlins trade 2B Luis Arraez to San Diego Padres

This contract is pending review for medical information only.

Miami Marlins No. 3 Luis Arraez speaks with teammates in the dugout before a game against the Oakland Athletics at Oakland Coliseum on May 3, 2024 in Oakland, California. The Miami Marlins are working on a deal that would send second baseman and reigning National League batting champion Luis Arraez to the San Diego Padres.

In return, the Marlins would get shortstop Woo-seok Go as well as prospects Dillon Head, Jacob Marcy and Nathan Martorella, ESPN’s Jeff Passan reported. The Marlins announced Friday that the deal is pending review of medical information before it can be finalized and officially announced.

Miami made a lineup change minutes before the first game in Oakland, removing the 27-year-old Arraez from the leadoff spot. Instead, he walked across the visitors’ bench at the Coliseum, shook hands, kissed and said goodbye to his former teammates, coaches and staff.

He should add immediate excitement to the Padres’ lineup. San Diego is chasing the Dodgers for first place in the talented National League West.
