He adds defensive depth for the Rays, having started 31 games at second base, nine at shortstop, eight at third base, seven in left field, and two in right field last season.

Tampa Bay also gained Boxberger, who made 18 relief appearances last season where he totaled an ERA of 2.86 with 24 strikeouts in five stints with the Padres.

The Padres received Torres, a left-handed reliever, who went 4-2 with a 1.71 ERA in 39 appearances last season.

Hahn was also shipped to San Diego. The right-hander started 19 games for Single-A Charlotte, where he went 2-1 with a 2.15 ERA.

The Rays also received minor-league pitchers Matt Andriese, Matt Lollis, and infielder Maxx Tissenbaum in the deal.
