Royals get pitchers Cahill, Maurer, Buchter from Padres

DETROIT (AP) After scrambling back into contention in the AL Central, the Kansas City Royals are gearing up to make another bid for a postseason spot.

The Royals acquired three pitchers from the San Diego Padres on Monday, getting starter Trevor Cahill, closer Brandon Maurer and reliever Ryan Buchter. Kansas City sent pitchers Matt Strahm and Travis Wood, minor league infielder Esteury Ruiz to the Padres and will pay more than $7.25 million to San Diego - covering the difference between's Wood pay and the big league minimum. The deal came one week before the nonwaiver trade deadline.

Kansas City entered Tuesday night's game at Detroit trailing first-place Cleveland by only 1 + games, and the Royals are also right in the mix for a wild card.
