The San Diego Padres acquired SP Drew Pomeranz and P Jose Torres from the Oakland Athletics Wednesday, Dec. 2, in exchange for 1B Yonder Alonso and RP Marc Rzepczynski.
Fantasy Tip: Pomeranz had a 3.66 ERA and 1.19 WHIP while striking out 8.6 hitters per nine innings in 86 frames last year (nine starts). He profiles as either a starter or a reliever with plenty of upside left, especially because he'll stay in an extreme pitcher's park. There's a chance he could compete for San Diego's closer role with Kevin Quackenbush, too, leaving open plenty of fantasy possibilities. Either way, it seems Pomeranz could have some sneaky fantasy value in 2016.

The Oakland Athletics acquired 1B Yonder Alonso and RP Marc Rzepczynski from the San Diego Padres Wednesday, Dec. 2, in exchange for SP Drew Pomeranz and P Jose Torres.
Fantasy Tip: Alonso hit a respectable .282 (100-for-354) with five home runs and 31 RBI in 103 games for the Padres in 2015. He's never had double-digit home runs in the majors and shouldn't be expected to reach that mark with a move to another extreme pitcher's park. You also can't expect him to duplicate another high average in 2016. He's strictly corner infield depth in much deeper leagues.
