The MLB Hot Stove is firing up a little bit before Thanksgiving, with the Milwaukee Brewers and San Diego Padres agreeing to a trade today.

The Padres sent well-regarded young infielder Luis Urias and left-handed starting pitcher Eric Lauer to Milwaukee for young outfielder Trent Grisham and right-handed starter Zach Davies.

San Diego also agreed to a free agent contract with left-hander Drew Pomeranz, per reports.

The 22-year-old Urias appeared in 83 games for the Padres over the last two seasons, hitting .221/.318/.326 with six home runs, 32 runs scored and 29 RBI. He can play either middle infield spot.

Lauer went 8-10 with a 4.45 ERA in 30 games (29 starts) last season. The 24-year-old southpaw is 14-17 with a 4.40 in 53 games (52 starts) over two seasons.

As for Grisham, unfortunately his brief time in Milwaukee will be best remembered for his key error in the 2019 NL Wild Card Game against the Nationals. In 51 regular season games with the Brewers, the 23-year-old hit six home runs with 24 runs scored and 24 RBI while slashing .231/.328/.410.

Finally, the 26-year-old Davies led Milwaukee in starts (31) and was second on the team with 10 wins. In 111 starts over five seasons, Davies owns a 43-32 career record with a 3.91 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP.
