Padres, Cardinals complete Khalil Greene trade

With the season ending injury to right-hander Mark Worrell, one of the players that came over from St. Louis in the Khalil Green trade, the Padres were in need of another arm and had yet to decide who the "player to be named later" would be. That changed this morning after the Padres had announced that they had come to an agreement, with the Cardinals, on that player.

According to, the Cardinals have sent right-hander Luke Gregerson to San Diego to complete the deal. The 24-year-old spent all of last season in Double-A Springfield, finishing the year with a 7-6 record, 10 saves and a 3.35 ERA in 57 relief appearances.

Gregerson is expected to join the Padres' in Peoria on Tuesday.
