FILE - In this Sept. 5, 2014, file photo, Tampa Bay Rays' Ryan Hanigan bats during a baseball game against the Baltimore Orioles St. Petersburg, Fla. Two people with knowledge of the deal say the San Diego Padres have agreed to obtain third baseman Will Middlebrooks from the Boston Red Sox for catcher Ryan Hanigan. The people spoke with The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Friday, Dec. 19, 2014,  because the trade hasn't been announced. The deal is pending medical approvals. Hanigan was obtained earlier from Tampa Bay in an 11-player, three-team deal that also brought outfielder Wil Myers, the 2013 AL Rookie of the Year, to San Diego. (AP Photo/Steve Nesius, File)
