Padres Rumors: Joe Ross Could Be Involved In Kemp Trade

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Good news: Matt Wisler is apparently not part of the trade package the Padres may or may not send to the Dodgers for Matt Kemp. Bad news: Joe Ross might be, according to Ken Rosenthal.

Okay, it's not that bad, as the 2011 first round pick hasn't had a great minor league career thus far. In 23 games between Lake Elsinore and San Antonio last season, the younger Ross brother posted a 3.92 ERA over 121.2 innings. Sure he's just 21, but if you're going to let one 21-year old pitcher go, you'd rather part with Ross than Wisler. Still, losing Joe Ross would mean the Padres will have to wait even longer before fielding their first pair of brothers since 2010's Scott and Jerry Hairston combination.
