PEORIA, Ariz. — The Dylan Cease trade has thrown a late wrench into the Padres’ roster planning for Korea. But on Friday morning, they officially announced the 31-man traveling squad for the series in Seoul.

Thirty of those players were on the charter team that left Phoenix on Wednesday night. Seaz, meanwhile, will join the club in Korea after checking into the Padres Spring facility on Thursday, then taking a flight to Los Angeles, with a possible connection to Seoul — where the Padres will open their 2024 regular season against the Dodgers on 20-21 March.

Here is the full travel list:

Catchers (3): Louis Campusano, Kyle Higashioka, Brett Sullivan

Infielders (7): Jake Cronenworth, Xander Bogaerts, Ha-Seong Kim, Manny Machado, Tyler Wade, Aggie Rosario, Graham Pauley

Field players (4): Fernando Tatis Jr., Jackson Merrill, Yurixon Profar, Jose Azocar

Starters (8): Yu Darvish, Joe Musgrove, Sease, Michael King, Johnny Brito, Matt Waldron, Randy Vasquez

Relievers (9): Robert Suarez, Yuki Matsui, Wandi Peralta, Tom Cosgrove, Eniel De Los Santos, Jeremiah Estrada, Woo-Suk Goh, Steven Kolek, Adrian Morejon

Game day rosters will remain at 26 players, so the Padres must make five more cuts before facing Los Angeles. But three of those players will remain on the big league roster and will not need to be drafted.

Here are some takeaways from Friday’s announcement:

1. Pauley, Rosario and Wade in the mix at third base

The most notable inclusion on the traveling roster was Pauley, the team’s No. 8 prospect, who posted a .314/.400/.486 slash line in 16 spring games.

But in the race to start work, Friday’s announcement brought some clarity. With Machado slated to start at DH, Wade, Pauly and Rosario were the three main candidates to fill his spot. All three traveled to Korea and all three are likely to make the 26-man game day roster as well.

Offensively, the Padres’ only cuts were outfielder Oscar Mercado and infielder Brad Miller. They will take 14 position players to Seoul and may include all 14 on their game day roster. If they go with 13, Sullivan, their No. 3 catcher, is likely the odd man out.

2. The competition for rotation continues

King, San Diego’s No. 4 starter, had already been listed as an option out of the bullpen against the Dodgers. Meanwhile, Seaz is not expected to play against LA, given that he was building on a different schedule than the rest of the team. You can put it with a pencil in place #3.

That leaves one spot open for Brito, Waldron, Vazquez and Avila, and that final spot likely won’t be decided before the Seoul series. The Padres still have two rounds of exhibitions — two games in Seoul against Team Korea and the LG Twins, then two more games against the Mariners, March 25-26 at Petco Park.

These four games are supposed to be used to settle the Padres rotation competition. It also makes sense that the team’s two starters for the exhibition games in Korea would be left off their game-day roster, given that they likely won’t be available.

With seven days between their second game in Korea and their first game of the regular season in the States, the Padres will essentially have a two-man rotation. That means they will carry 10 or 11 players.

As such, don’t expect Musgrove and Darvish to work deep into these games — especially given the schedule space.

“We have to keep in mind that we’re still in the middle of spring training,” said Musgrove, who pitched 4 1/3 innings of one-run ball on Wednesday. “As much as we’re excited to go out there and throw seven plus, throw our own complete game, it’s more important to stay healthy.”

The Padres have a weapon for that. Although, if they carry 17 pitchers, they’ll have to cut at least four from that group before opening day.

Perhaps the most notable cut from Friday’s announcement: Luis Patinho, who was out of options, was not among the traveling group, meaning he is expected to be named for assignment.
