On Sunday, the San Diego Padres acquired receiver Austin Nola from the Seattle Mariners on a seven-man contract.Part of the return for Seattle is one of San Diego’s top prospects, outfielder Taylor Trammell. Other players included in the Mariners’ run are infielder Ty France, wide receiver Luis Torrens and right-handed relief pitcher Andres Munoz.

Headed to the Padres are relieved Austin Adams and Dan Altavilla. A great right-hander who struck out 51 goals in 31 innings last year, Adams is recovering from ACL surgery but will return soon and should be a good addition for San Diego alongside recently acquired Trevor Rosenthal.

Trammell was treated by Cincinnati to the Padres last season in a three-way trade involving the Cleveland Indians.

Trammell is ranked No.5 among the Padres and 75th overall in the MLB by ESPN’s Kiley McDaniel. He hit .234 with 10 homers, 43 RBIs and 20 goals stolen in 126 Double-A games last season.

Nola is the older brother of right-hander Philadelphia Phillies starter Aaron Nola.

San Diego has been busy heading into Monday’s 4 p.m. ET trade deadline, acquiring slugger Mitch Moreland from the Boston Red Sox earlier Sunday and also securing a deal for veteran Los Angeles Angels wide receiver Jason Castro. , according to sources. These moves came in the wake of the Padres who caused a sensation with their trade against Rosenthal of Kansas City on Saturday.
