Seattle Mariners Rumors - MLB Trade Rumors

Even players with future control are usually added first and foremost for their immediate contributions though there are some exceptions. As has now become customary, GM Jeff Luhnow pulled a rabbit out of his hat. But how does it look at this early stage? Through seven starts, he carries a 3.

Corbin Martin is still early in his Tommy John recovery, while J. Bukauskas only made two starts after the swap. Infielder Josh Rojasthe least-hyped player involved, went on an unreal tear at Triple-A to earn a call-up. That one will take longer to assess, particularly with regard to what was lost for the Houston org. The other MLB piece added has worked out quite nicely. The Astros brought back veteran backstop Martin Maldonado for another run.

Acquired for his defense, bleacher report mariners, he has also provided a whopping. It has been quite the opposite experience for the Cubs, who added utilityman Tony Kemp in the deal.

Kemp has just nine base knocks two for extras in his 64 trips to the plate with Chicago. The club sent out backstop Max Stassi to make way for Maldonado. The young reliever added in that deal, Andre Scrubbcontinued to show much the same results as before the swap, bleacher report mariners. While the club was rightly pleased with its overall position-player mix, there was an obvious dearth of talent in the staff — the rotation, in particular.

The year-old has eaten innings as advertised, with a 4. Infielder Kevin Merrell had been struggling when he was sent to K. While his peripherals look much like those of Bailey, Roark has held opposing teams to 3. He slashed just. Oakland swung one other deal with the Royals, giving up prospects Ismael Aquino and Dairon Blanco in exchange for southpaw Jake Diekman. Blanco has scuffled mightily since the deal, while Aquino remains a total wild card.

Both still look like very nice values now and in the near future. For a team with hopes of a reasonably competitive reset, it was understandable that they held onto these free-agent hits. An bleacher report mariners deal could yet also be considered. The Rangers still look to have added some nice pieces in the deadline moves they did make.

Veteran reliever Chris Martin brought back southpaw Kolby Allardwhile high-powered but command-challenged reliever Peter Fairbanks netted utilityman Nick Solak, bleacher report mariners.

It was easy to part with an older bullpen piece, though Fairbanks has shown well and could still make the club pay. The year-old Allard may not have an exceptional ceiling, but he has managed to carry a 3. And Solak has a ridiculous. That deal did cost two rookie ball pitchers. Just kidding. But … yeah, not much action for the Halos, was there?

The aforementioned Stassi was added on the heels of even smaller acquisitions of along with Josh Thole link and Adam McCreery link, bleacher report mariners. To be fair, the Angels did not have a ton of obvious trade pieces to work with. But there could have been more, bleacher report mariners. Mitch Haniger might have been an interesting candidate for a big swap but for an injury. Domingo Santana was also not a factor for similar reasons. The club did end up making several moves that brought in a volume of prospects, bleacher report mariners.

The year-old worked to a 2. In a pair of deals, the Mariners sent relievers Hunter Bleacher report mariners link and Roenis Elias link to the Nationals for a series of prospects.

And Taylor Guilbeau showed enough to get a late call-up. He owns a 4. The third hurler added from the D. He ran up the Nats ladder with good numbers and ended the season with a inning Double-A run with the Seattle organization, over which he compiled a 3. After a long time trying, the Mariners also found a home for veteran righty Mike Leakewhose no-trade rights complicated matters. The only other Seattle swap was a minor one, bleacher report mariners.

He continued to struggle at the plate at Triple-A after the deal. Seattle had designated Court for assignment yesterday in making another wave of September call-ups.

Court, 31, made his MLB bleacher report mariners with the Mariners earlier this season, hitting. He logged a. To create man roster space, the club designated utilityman Ryan Court for assignment. This multi-part move comes as no surprise, as the Seattle organization was reportedly preparing to call up Dunn link and Lewis link just yesterday. Walton and Warren are lesser-known entities, but still hold promise of their own. Walton, 25, spent the season turning in good numbers at the Double-A level.

Over plate appearances, he slashed a sturdy. As for Warren, he already went through a winter of Rule 5 eligibility without being taken. At 26 years of age, Warren worked to a 1. It was still a rewarding season, as he logged his first MLB hit and first home run in a brief showing after entering the campaign in the indy ball ranks.

Court is a. Kelenic, bleacher report mariners, who has breezed through three minor league levels this season and reached Double-A as a year-old, has garnered the most fanfare of the players Seattle picked up in that deal. But Dunn has elevated his own stock in and now sits 73rd and 98th on the respective midseason leaguewide prospect rankings from MLB. Dunn draws praise for a heater that sits in the mph range but can reach a bit higherand MLB. Like the aforementioned Lewis, bleacher report mariners, Dunn is a former first-round pick himself and, in fact, was selected just eight picks after Lewis in Bleacher report mariners lists bleacher report mariners Donnie Walton and righty Art Warren as others who could make the jump.

All four from that quartet should get opportunities to prove themselves capable as MLB contributors in the very near future. The Mariners are set to promote outfield prospect Kyle Lewis for his MLB debut, as bleacher report mariners first made apparent in a congratulatory tweet from his his college team at Mercer. Lewis, 24, bleacher report mariners, was the No. He suited up for only a combined 79 games in his first two professional seasons, and he underwent a second knee surgery — an arthroscopic procedure — bleacher report mariners before the season began.

At the time of the draft, bleacher report mariners, Lewis was seen as one of the top college bats available, bleacher report mariners, and it was something of a surprise to see him make it to the Mariners with the No.

The organization surely hoped him capable of being a quick bleacher report mariners through the minor league ranks, but the knee injury and lingering complications threw a wrench into any plans to fast-track him to the big leagues. They tabbed him as a potential middle-of-the-order hitter with impressive raw power but also some strikeout bleacher report mariners. Looking ahead, the Mariners have several more established outfield options immediately atop their depth chart, though both Mitch Haniger and Domingo Santana are currently injured.

Other options on the man roster include Jake FraleyBraden Bishop and Keon Broxtonalthough the latter of that group seems likely to come off the man roster this winter given his struggles with three different organizations. Presumably, the Mariners are looking to clear room on the man for potential call-ups from Double-A Arkansas, where the season has not yet ended. Even in abbreviated fashion over plate appearances, however, Seager looks to have reversed a very worrisome decline at the plate.

Seager hit. That great year was followed up, however, by a less-impressive and then a disastrous After breaking his left big toe in June, Seager made an ill-fated attempt to try and play through the injury, leading to the worst full-season numbers of his career.

While still not at his peak, bleacher report mariners, Seager has nonetheless rebounded to once again become a force at the plate. He has 18 homers and a. He has also shown more patience, with a 9. Beyond just a healed toe, bleacher report mariners, Seager also took steps to improve his diet and offseason training last winter, and the early results bode well for him to remain a valuable player heading intohis age season.

That club option becomes guaranteed, however, in the event of a trade, effectively making it a poison pill rival teams are unlikely to swallow for a player who bleacher report mariners be 34 on Opening Day Even the fact that Seager can again be considered something of a trade chip, however, represents a big step forward for the third baseman given his issues over the previous two seasons.

The year-old offseason acquisition was far better in the minors, though, as he slashed a combined.
