At the time of the trade, Corey Kluber was an unknown prospect. I bet the San Diego Padres would like a do-over if given the chance.

Drafted in the fourth round of the 2007 MLB Draft, Corey Kluber was a bit of an unknown prospect when he was dealt as part as a three-team trade that ultimately sent Ryan Ludwick to the San Diego Padres.

MLB put together its list of players who got away from their respective clubs, and naturally, Kluber was pegged as that guy for the Friars.
