Sources: Manaea to Padres as As continue purge

The San Diego Padres have acquired left-hander Sean Manaea in a trade with the Oakland Athletics, sources confirmed to ESPN on Sunday.

Manaea, 30, went 11-10 with a 3.91 ERA in 32 starts last season for the A’s. He now joins one of the deepest rotations in the majors as the Padres feature Opening Day starter Yu Darvish, Joe Musgrove, Blake Snell, Mike Clevinger and Nick Martinez. Right-hander Chris Paddack is on the injured list with an oblique injury.

The trade also reunites Manaea with his former Oakland manager Bob Melvin.

For Oakland, the deal continues an offseason teardown that has seen the A’s send first baseman Matt Olson to Atlanta, third baseman Matt Chapman to Toronto and right-hander Chris Bassitt to the Mets.

MLB.com first reported news of the trade.
