Marlins Trade De La Cruz to Padres


              The Marlins have traded right-handed pitcher Frankie De La Cruz to the San Diego Padres for cash and a player to be named later.

              De La Cruz was one of six players the Marlins obtained from the Detroit Tigers in the Miguel Cabrera/Dontrelle Willis trade in December, 2007.

              De La Cruz, who is out of options, is expected to make the Padres' 25-man roster.

              The hard-throwing 25-year-old went 13-8 at Triple A Albuquerque last season but struggled in his six outings -- including one start -- for the Marlins. In those games, De La Cruz had an ERA of 18.00 and walked 11 in just nine innings.
