The San Diego Padres have been looking for an upgrade in center field all offseason. A.J. Preller has made it pretty clear that he’d like to fill that position with someone outside of the organization.
And after trading the team’s only true center fielder in Manuel Margot, and subsequently missing out on trading for Mookie Betts, fans are starting to wonder where Preller turns to next to find that center fielder.
Many fans, and even some reporters, have brought up the possibility of trading for Nick Senzel.
Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune (subscription required) even mentioned Senzel as a possible trade target, stating the Padres could use the excess bullpen arms they have to try and trade for him.
