Source: #DBacks avoid arbitration with Joe Thatcher for $2.375 million
Joe Thatcher struggled with #DBacks, but his overall numbers are good & free agent relief arms aren't cheap. A non-tender would surprise me.
There are legs to Ian Kennedy-to-Padres rumors as reported by @ScottMCBS. Joe Thatcher would be one of the players going to Arizona.
One more to watch on deadline day: #Padres more likely to deal Thatcher than Gregerson. Saying no to all deals for any of their OFs
Padres are listening on Gregerson/Thatcher interest but they'd have to be inspired by an offer to move either guy.
