    MLB Pro Seattle Mariners
  1. Seattle sends... OF Roy McKenzie (100% retained) Colorado sends... Rule 5 draft rights of Luis Mendez (he's on Seattle's roster already) OF Domingo Manuel - Rookie League Seattle was looking for some roster flexibility with MR Luis Mendez, and this trade achieves that. He'll likely float between the majors and AAA this year as we need. In addition, we receive 16-year old OF prospect Domingo Manuel, who will likely shift to a 1B position given his handedness (lefty), size (6'6") and defense (it's bad) in the outfield. In exchange, we move steady backup OF Roy Mckenzie (retaining 100% of his 2020 salary), who is a team leader off the bench for the M's, but there are 4 OF in AAA ready for the opportunity in the big show. Thanks for the deal Eddie, and good luck the rest of the way in your pursuits of losing to the AL in the World Series!
  2. Mariners accept this deal. We've been looking for a decent backup infielder with options and Matt Jenkins fits that bill perfectly. He'll report to AAA Tacoma and projects to be a back-up for the next couple of years in Seattle. We also needed some cash to finally get into the black this year. In exchange, we give up Keegan Thompson and Andrew Moritz, with effectively the same evaluation that Cole has; both being serviceable pieces with some potential upside and low floors.
  3. Seattle sends... SP Taijuan Walker (AAA) RP Blake Trienen (AAA) Chicago sends... RP Matt Cox (A-) $916,405 After acquiring Kelvin Herrera earlier this week, the Mariners needed some additional salary relief, and moving Walker and acquiring cash helps with that. In order to make this deal complete, the Cubs wanted Trienen as well. Cox is basically a relief pitching lotto ticket.
  4. Seattle sends: RP Marek Minarek Milwaukee sends: SP Lawrence Laffe (Brevard County - A+) Seattle needed the roster spot after the acquisition of Kelvin Herrera, and Minarek becomes the odd man out from the bullpen. Is Larry Laffe is a minor league lotto ticket who could blossom into a relief pitcher? I donno... can't wait to find out!
  5. Seattle sends: 3B Felipe 'Motormouth' Legaspe (A - Clinton) Chicago sends: RP Kelvin Herrera (ML) We've been looking for bullpen help, and although Herrera is expensive ($4.3M in 2020) and not good, we're hopeful that the change in scenery might make a difference. If we can somehow get 2012-2019 production out of him, we'll be happy. If we get his continued 2020 production, this trade sucks. In exchange, we give up one of our favorite long-term prospects Felipe Legaspe, who has kind of fallen out of favor with his production thus far in the minors. Hopefully the organizational switch gets him back on the right track. Thanks to Hodges for the quick and easy swap, and good luck with Motormouth!
  6. Mariners agree to this trade. We're basically banking on the idea that a change of scenery might fix him, and if not, we give up $0 and a relief pitching prospect for the lotto ticket. Thanks the Vetlur for the quick and easy talks.
  7. Seattle sends... MR Michael Brady (DFA) New York (A) sends... SP Jim Lawrence (GCL - Tampa 2) SP Enrique Guerra (GCL - Tampa 2) Seattle had a 27-man roster unfortunately due to some paperwork mishaps with the Rule 5 draft, and this is the point in the season where we had to make a decision. We decided to keep all three Rule 5 guys, and instead part ways with long-time Mariner reliever Michael Brady. In exchange, we pick up two young pitching prospects, who will be groom for future bullpen roles. Fingers crossed they accept their new roles and develop into major league arms. Thanks to Rhett for the smooth talks!
  8. Seattle sends: SS Jose Silva (AA Jackson) Washington sends: LF Alexander Ramirez (Int'l Complex) Spotted Ramirez in the Natinals International Complex and thought he'd be an interesting lotto ticket. In exchange, we move SS Jose Silva who is a solid prospect, but not in the future plans for us. Thanks to Tony for a super quick and easy deal.
  9. Seattle sends... - P Tommy Leppert (R league) Tampa Bay sends... - 3B Adrian Cardenas (% salary retained) Mariners needed another infield option with very little financial flexibility and Cardenas at $0 fits the bill. While we like Leppert as a flex rotation/bullpen guy, giving him up is worth the risk for some injury security at the infield position.
  10. Atlanta sends... SP Casey Kelly Seattle sends... SP Matthew Thompson (A-) The Mariners needed another rotation option coming into the spring training. The Slack dice were not nice, and therefore we have to give up top prospect Matthew Thompson. Good luck Brenton, I'm super jealous!
  11. Mariners accept. Always looking for low cost bullpen pieces, and with Detroit covering Brach's salary, it doesn't get much cheaper than $0. Hopefully Brach can pitch a little bit... Thanks to Heinz for the quick and easy swap!
  12. Mariners agree. Taking a flier on Taijuan Walker at the end the rotation and seeing what happens... we like Brandon Lewis, but he seems like a fair piece to gamble on Walker with. Thanks to Brett for the talks and the deal.
  13. Seattle sends... C Blake Swihart C Ken Boucher (AA - Jackson) Kansas City sends... 3B Ryan Wheeler (retains 70%) The Mariners acquire Ryan Wheeler as a platoon partner for Julian Silva at 1B. The 70% salary retainment helps us add, while still allowing us to upgrade the rotation hopefully. In return, we give up C prospect Ken Boucher and C Blake Swihart. Thanks to Chappy for the quick and easy deal!
