I'd go ahead and grab Hafner. They are pretty even, but a resurrected Hafner can definitely give you more. Especially since this is a bench swap, I would prefer to go with the guy that has shown better potential in the past.

Vicente Padilla is also available. Would he help me more? Or go with Hafner?

I'd still drop LaPorta. Hold onto Padilla for a little, it looks like he could have a shot at the closer role in LA, and it's more valuable to have 3 closers than an extra bench player on offense in my opinion.
