Padres acquired INF Jorge Mateo from the Athletics for a player to be named later.
A longtime top prospect, Mateo has run out of options even though he still hasn't seen the majors. The shortstop was ranked as high as No. 26 on Baseball America's Top 100, a list he made three straight years, but his stock has fallen while hitting a modest .261/.306/.433 in Triple-A the last two years. He can run and he's adequate defensively at shortstop, with the promise of increased versatility down the line, so he should have a career as a bench player. The Padres will likely use him primarily as a pinch-runner this year. Jun 30 8:10 pm (EST)
