I'm pretty sure if the Padres line-up started running late 20's career minor leaguers out there in place of bonafide big leaguers, the fanbase who have already paid for tickets would notice.
The point is, if all the pads could get is some suspect minor leaguer with no hint of ptential, why would they trade him now? Why not wait? See if some team suffers injuries and is willing to pay more. The only reason for them to move him now is if some team pays more now than they could get later.
