Former Biloxi Shucker Josh Hader traded to San Diego Padres

Former Biloxi Shucker Josh Hader is leaving the only Major League team he’s ever been a part of as a part of the first major deal to go down on the day before the MLB trade deadline.

Today, the Milwaukee Brewers closer packed his bags and heads to California to resume his duties for the San Diego Padres.

Hader currently leads the league with 29 saves to go along with 59 strikeouts in 34 innings.

His 4.24 ERA is misleading, having given up a combined nine runs on July 13th and 15th, but has been otherwise lights out with just two blown saves.

Coming back to Milwaukee in the deal are pitchers Taylor Rogers, Dinelson Limet, prospect Robert Gasser, and Esteury Ruiz.
