Good move by the Royals to acquire three useful arms from the Padres in starter Trevor Cahill and relievers Brandon Maurer and Ryan Buchter. The Royals needed pitching depth and they get that in this deal. Matt Strahm is the main talent acquired by the Padres. He's out for the season after knee surgery and has promise as a starter, but given his struggles throwing enough strikes as a reliever with the Royals, his future is probably in the bullpen.
