His high walk rate brings his x FIP all the way up to 4.42.

Despite those mediocre predictive metrics, opponents have just a .269 w OBA against Buchter in his career (spanning 102 Turning to the return for the Padres, Travis Wood hasn’t been able to replicate the impressive numbers he put together in a career year in 2015, when he had a 28.2 percent strikeout rate.

Cahill will slot into their rotation right away as one of their best starters. Moving on to the relievers being shipped to Kansas City in the deal, Brandon Maurer and Ryan Buchter were two of San Diego’s better bullpen arms.

Maurer served as San Diego’s closer for most of this season, and he’s pitched better than his 5.72 ERA would indicate.

Statcast backs up Cahill’s performance, too, pegging him with the 10th-best expected w OBA among starters in baseball at .273.

Kansas City starters have the fourth-worst x FIP in the American League this season, so there was an obvious need for an upgrade.

Finally, the real wild card of the bunch is Esteury Ruiz.

The Royals signed Ruiz in 2015 for 0,000 during the international signing period, and according to J. Cooper of Baseball America, he “immediately impressed with his ability to make consistent solid contact.” Cooper adds that Ruiz “has the bat speed and strong wrists to generate excellent exit velocities,” and that he “projects as an offensive second baseman.” In the Arizona League this season, Ruiz hit .419/.440/.779, striking out 22 percent of the time and walking at a 4.4 percent rate.

Among National League starters with a minimum of 60 innings pitched, Cahill’s 70.4 percent contact rate is fourth-best, as is his 56.8 percent ground ball rate, and his 12.8 percent swinging strike rate is ninth-best.
