San Diego Padres trade Brad Brach, Jaff Decker, Miles Mikolas in 2 separate deals

Brach to Orioles, Decker and Mikolas to Pirates

The San Diego Padres traded three players in two separate deals Monday, acquiring a pitching prospect and outfielder.

In one trade, the Padres traded outfielder Jaff Decker and right-handed pitcher Miles Mikolas to the Pittsburgh Pirates for outfielder Alex Dickerson.

Decker hit .286 with 10 home runs and 40 RBI in 105 games with Triple-A Tucson in 2013. He also went 4 for 26 with a homer and two RBI in 13 games with the Padres. Mikolas went 4-2 with 26 saves for Tucson this year and made two scoreless appearances for San Diego.

Dickerson was selected the Eastern League Rookie of the Year after hitting .288 with 17 home runs and 68 RBIs with Double-A Altoona.

In another trade, the Padres sent reliever Brad Brach to the Baltimore Orioles for pitching prospect Devin Jones.

Brach had a 3.19 ERA in 33 games last season with the Padres, striking out 31 in 31 innings. In three seasons with San Diego, Brach went 3-6 with a 3.70 ERA over 109 appearances.

The 23-year-old Jones was 5-7 with a 5.64 ERA in 25 starts this year with Class A Frederick and Double-A Bowie. Jones was selected by Baltimore in the ninth round of the 2011 amateur draft out of Mississippi State.
