The San Diego Padres already pulled off one of the best and biggest moves of the MLB offseason when they signed Xander Bogaerts to a massive 11-year free-agent contract. Given their aggressive team-building style, however, they're probably not done making moves.

According to MLB insider Ken Rosenthal, two surprising Padres players may actually be on the way out. He explains that two San Diego players popped up in recent trade rumors.

GM A.J. Preller revealed that he's been contacted about potential trades for both INF Kim Ha-Seong and CF Trent Grisham. Both players' names only surfaced after the Bogaerts signing.

Perhaps this is merely GM speak, but Preller did not sound too intrigued about the possibility of moving on from either.

“With the Bogaerts signing, our intention is to play this position group together. We like the flexibility and the versatility it gives our team.”

Given the strength of San Diego's roster, it makes sense why Preller would be reluctant to part with any talent. The Padres are currently tied for the fourth-best World Series odds (+1000) on FanDuel Sportsbook's MLB odds.
