The Padres dealt rookie catcher Luis Martinez to the Rangers for right handed pitcher Ryan Kelly. Kelly spent most of his time in the Pirates system and he has some solid numbers. He’s never played above High-A though but he has 235 strikeouts and just 66 walks in 266 innings.
This was pretty much a give away because Martinez was designated for assignment after the Mat Latos trade. The Padres now have too many catchers and Martinez was the odd man out. He made his debut in 2011 and was solid as a backup catcher.
