Seattle sends...

- C Rob Brantly (retaining 35%)

- 1B Michael Wheeloc (A - Clinton) 


Toronto sends...

- RP Andy Dominick

- RP Mitch Carter (AAA - Buffalo)

- CF David Dillon (A+ - Dunedin)


After weeks and weeks and weeks and weeks of negotiations (just kidding, Mitch.. it was fun going back and forth with you on this), the Mariners honor Rob Brantly's wish to start and ship him off to Toronto, along with promising prospect Michael Wheeloc. In exchange, the Mariners receive Mitch "He was a waiver claim" Carter, Andy Dominick, and prospect David Dillon. Mitch will provide much needed bullpen depth in AAA, while Dominick will compete for the last bullpen spot in spring training. The real "prize" of this deal is Dillon, who projects as a light-hitting 4th OF, with a ceiling of a light hitting defensive CF. As you can see, the M's got a real package here. But it does fill some organizational depth issues that we have in the minors. Thanks to Mitch for the fun talks in getting this one done.

The 2018 Jays were marred by some of the worst offensive catching in the history of MLBPro. With Yady Molina still one of the best leaders in the league, and able to hold his own versus left handed pitching, management sought out a very good defensive piece who could simply hit RHP. We feel Rob Brantly fits this mold perfectly. Brantly owns a career 114 OPS+ v RHP and is a + defensive catcher.


With Norberto and Jansen signing on, and still in search for 1 final pen piece, Dominick was expendable with no minor league options. Mitch Carter, although a waiver grab from the Orioles earlier this offseason, was a coveted piece who could be a great AAA ace and emergency starter, but with Nicholas, Pickett, McCutc all fighting for 1/2 MLB jobs, our SP depth was suitable.


David Dillon was certainly the best 'asset' involved in this train, but after some scouting hits report by the Jays scouts on New Years Day, management softened their position on him, willing to move him for what we see as a better hitter in Wheeloc, without his speed or defence.


The Blue Jays management will have to take SEVERAL weeks off after these laborious and stressful talks with the Mariner contingency.
