Just when we all thought the madness was finally over, the Padres went and traded for yet another reliever out of the Mariners’ bullpen.

ESPN’s Jeff Passan reported that San Diego has acquired RHP Taylor Williams in return for a player to be named later.

The 29-year old Williams currently has a 1-1 record so far in 2020, posting a 5.93 ERA through 14 relief appearances with 19 total strikeouts. He’s also led Seattle in saves this season, converting all six of his opportunities while limiting opposing batters to a .231 average.

Williams was originally a 4th-round selection of the Milwaukee Brewers back in the 2013 draft. He played collegiately at Kent State University.

Update:

The PTBNL has been reported to be RHP Matt Brash, fourth-round pick of the Padres in last year’s draft.
