TAMPA, Fla — Former Cy Young Award winner Blake Snell could be headed to the San Diego Padres.

ESPN reporter Jeff Passan and Dennis Lin with The Athletic both reporting the deal between Snell and the Padres is in its final stages. 

According to Passan, the deal would be "centered around top pitching prospect Luis Patiño," citing ESPN sources.

Lin added that Francisco Mejía, Blake Hunt and Cole Wilcox would be heading to Tampa as part of the deal.
