- OF Bubba Starling (DFA)
New York sends:
- DH Prince Fielder (DFA) - Yankees retain 75% of salary
Seattle was looking to add some offense and found an old friend: Prince Fielder. In exchange, we give up OF Bubba Starling, who lost his starting CF job to former Yankee Mariano Gonzalez in the spring, and thus became expendable with lots of younger OF in the minors to replace him as a 4th OF on the big league club. I feel like there is a Prince & King [Felix] pun here too, but I'm too lazy. Good luck to Rhett with his old pal Bubba Starling!
