- C Rob Brantly (retaining 35%)
- 1B Michael Wheeloc (A - Clinton)
- 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.
