The MLB Trade Deadline was silent. Everything was quiet.

Then, San Diego Padres general manager AJ Preller woke everybody up. According to Jeff Passan of ESPN, Milwaukee Brewers All-Star closer Josh Hader is heading to San Diego.

The return for Hader is a big one, and with the recent struggles of Taylor Rogers, a move for another closer felt evident.

In five seasons with the Brewers, Hader totaled 125 saves, with a career-high 37 in the 2019 campaign. He leads the entire MLB this year with 29 saves, just one ahead of Taylor Rogers, who the Padres sent away in this deal.

Still, Hader’s stuff is electric.

Padres fans and MLB fans exploded after this trade was announced, and who knows what will happen next.

By now, Preller’s aggressiveness is not surprising. Moreover, rumors have swirled about Washington Nationals star Juan Soto potentially going to San Diego as well.

If Preller can pull off a Juan Soto AND Josh Hader deadline frenzy, the Padres might be a serious World Series contender this season.

Stay tuned because the 202 MLB Trade Deadline has arisen from the dead, and all eyes are on AJ Preller. The Padres are making moves, and let’s see which other teams crack into the fun of trading.
