The San Diego Padres have already traded relievers Joaquin Benoit and Craig Kimbrel to the Seattle Mariners and Boston Red Sox, respectively, and right-hander Tyson Ross could be the next pitcher to depart, though the cost for teams showing interest will reportedly be steep.

San Diego would consider trading the 28-year-old, but only in exchange for a "monster package," according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports.

The former second-round pick could provide interested parties with an intriguing top-of-the-rotation option if they fail to land one of the biggest free agents on the open market.

PLAYER W-L ERA WHIP SO STATUS
David Price 18-5 2.45 1.08 225 FA
Zack Greinke 19-3 1.66 0.84 200 FA
Johnny Cueto 11-13 3.44 1.13 176 FA
Jeff Samardzija 11-13 4.96 1.29 163 FA
Tyson Ross 10-12 3.26 1.31 212 SDP

The older brother of Washington Nationals right-hander Joe Ross is under club control for two more seasons and is projected to earn $10 million in arbitration, according to MLB Trade Rumors.

Ross was also impressive away from the friendly pitching confines of Petco Park last season, posting a 6-3 record with a 2.83 ERA in 17 road starts, while his ERA rose to 3.70 at home.
