Ross, Revere, Asche among 35 new free agents

Former Padres All-Star Tyson Ross, Nationals outfielder Ben Revere and Phillies outfielder Cody Asche are among 35 players who became free agents Friday.

Keith Law ESPN Senior Writer 

Tyson Ross missed pretty much all of 2016 with a sore shoulder and had surgery to address TOS in October. The year before he led the NL in walks and he's always had a high risk delivery. I can't blame the Padres for walking away from $9MM+ for him.

Nationals reacquire catcher Norris from Padres

Derek Norris, a 2007 first-round pick of the Nationals, is headed back to Washington. The Nats sent minor league right-hander Pedro Avila to the Padres for Norris on Friday.

Jim Bowden ESPN Senior Writer 

Padres newly acquired Pedro Avila is a 5-11 RHP with a 95 mph fastball (without much downward plane) but has an above average curve ball when it's working. A top 25-30 type prospect in a strong Nationals farm system. The Padres deal means Austin Hedges becomes their starting catcher.

Jim Bowden ESPN Senior Writer 

Nationals acquire Derek Norris from the Padres in a trade for RHP Pedro Avila, a 19 year old right-handed pitcher. Norris now back where it all started for him when he was drafted by the Nationals in the 4th round of the 2007 Draft and later used to acquire Gio Gonzalez in a trade with Oakland. Padres GM AJ Preller continues his signature trading for prospects with high ceilings but high risk high reward because of how far they are from the big leagues. The acquisition of Norris probably means Ramos won't be back with Nationals. Washington now will turn their attention back to trying to trade for Andrew McCutchen (or another bat) and trying to sign free agent closers like Mark Melancon and Kenley Jansen
