Padres Acquire Baek

The Padres and Mariners worked out a minor trade, as they have many times in the past.  The Padres acquired Cha Seung Baek for Jared Wells.  Baek was in the 10-day limbo period after being designated for assignment.  Paul DePodesta explains that the Padres have been eyeing Baek for some time.

Baek, 28, has a 4.96 ERA in 168.2 career innings for the Mariners.  His best asset has been respectable control.  The Ms signed Baek out of Korea for $1.3MM in '98.  Baseball America said back in '05 that Baek succeeds by locating a full five-pitch repertoire.  He had Tommy John surgery back in '01.

Wells, 26, was shifted to relief at Triple A last year and picked up nine saves.  His numbers have been ugly - tons of hits, poor control, mediocre strikeout rate.  Baseball America notes his average slider and decent two-seam fastball.
