REPORT: Cubs-Padres 'deep into talks' about a trade for Yu Darvish


by - Senior Editor -

The San Diego Padres are going for it this offseason to try to win it all in 2021.

The Padres traded for ace Blake Snell for a basket of top prospects last night, but they appear that hasn't satisfied their need for elite pitching.

Next man on their target list is still CY Young finalist Yu Darvish.

"Even after landing Blake Snell, the Padres are deep into talks to acquire Yu Darvish from the Cubs, sources tell @PJ_Mooney, @sahadevsharma, and me," Dennis Lin of The Athletic posted. "If the deal is completed, multiple players would head to Chicago."

Shocking stuff as the Padres are attempting to add two aces this offseason. Darvish has three years left on his current contract with the Cubs.

Darvish had an impressive 8-3 record (tied first in wins) with a 2.01 ERA with 93 strikeouts and a sparkling 0.96 WHIP in 12 starts this past season.

He struck out 93 batters and only walked 14 in 76 innings.
