Urias was the team’s No. 3 prospect at the start of the season, according to MLB.com. Morejon, a left-hander, and Baez, a right-hander, ranked No. 7 and No. 8.
There are a few possible reasons for these moves. The Padres are 4.5 games out of a wild card spot, which could be a motivating factor. However, the Padres have also been linked to some major trade chips, and some of these prospects would probably be discussed as part of a potential trade package.
