  • Mariners Interested In Gleyber Torres

    The Mariners have interest in Yankees second baseman Gleyber Torres, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.  It isn’t known if the two sides are particularly close on any sort of trade, though Sherman theorizes that the M’s could potentially offer the Yankee some bullpen help in return — akin to Seattle’s deal for…

  • D-Backs Acquire Kyle Lewis From Mariners

    The Arizona Diamondbacks acquired outfielder Kyle Lewis from the Seattle Mariners on Thursday in exchange for outfielder/catcher Cooper Hummel, according to sources familiar with the situation. Lewis was named the American League Rookie of the Year during the COVID-shortened 2020 season, when he hit .262/.364/.437 with an .801 OPS, 11 home runs, 28 RBI, 37 runs scored and five stolen bases in 58 games. But he's underwhelmed in two seasons since and has been bothered by injuries. In just 18 games for Seattle in 2022, he hit .143/.226/.304 with three homers, five RBI, six runs scored and 19 strikeouts in 56 at-bats. A change of scenery could be what Lewis needs to get back into fantasy relevance.

  • Prelander Berroa, Jonatan Clase Protected From Rule 5 Draft

    The Seattle Mariners added right-handers Prelander Berroa and Isaiah Campbell and outfielders Jonatan Clase and Cade Marlowe to their 40-man roster on Tuesday, protecting them from this week's Rule 5 draft. Per MLB Pipeline, Berroa (No. 15), Campbell (24), Clase (12) and Marlowe (21) are all among the team's top-25 prospects. Berroa, 22, had a 2.86 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 150 strikeouts in 100 2/3 innings over 26 starts in three minor-league stops this season, but he also walked 63 batters. He'll need to get his control figured out before he advances to Triple-A. Clase is still only 20 years and hasn't played above Single-A, so he still has plenty of developing to do. The switch-hitter batted .267 with 13 home runs, 49 RBI, 91 runs scored and 55 stolen bases in 107 games for Single-A Modesto in 2022.

  • Blue Jays Get Erik Swanson, Adam Macko From M's

    The Toronto Blue Jays are acquiring reliever Erik Swanson and left-handed pitching prospect Adam Macko from the Seattle Mariners on Wednesday in exchange for outfielder Teoscar Hernandez. Swanson was a very reliable setup man for the Mariners last year, posting a 1.68 ERA, 0.91 WHIP, three saves, 14 holds, 70 walks and only 10 strikeouts in 53 2/3 innings. The 29-year-old right-hander now moves to the tough American League East, where he'll be a setup man for closer Jordan Romano. Macko, 21, was ranked as Seattle's No. 8 prospect by MLB Pipeline before the trade. The young southpaw will be a long-term option for Toronto's rotation down the line. He made eight starts for High-A Everett in 2022, going 0-2 with a 3.99 ERA, 1.38 WHIP, 60 strikeouts and 20 walks in 38 1/3 innings pitched.

  • Mariners Trading For Teoscar Hernandez

    The Seattle Mariners are expected to acquire outfielder Teoscar Hernandez from the Toronto Blue Jays on Wednesday in exchange for reliever Erik Swanson and left-handed pitching prospect Adam Macko, according to multiple MLB sources. Hernandez will effectively take over for Mitch Haniger, who will leave in free agency this offseason. The 30-year-old Dominican outfielder was an All-Star for the first time in 2021 and followed that up by hitting .267/.316/.491 with an .807 OPS, 25 home runs, 77 RBI, 71 runs scored and six stolen bases in 535 plate appearances over 131 games in Toronto. He'll be leaving one potent lineup for another and should remain very attractive in fantasy for his power RBI abilities with his new squad.

  • Mariners Willing To Trade Chris Flexen, Marco Gonzales's Jon Morosi reported Tuesday that the Seattle Mariners would be willing to trade either starting pitcher Chris Flexen or Marco Gonzales. Flexen is in the final year of his contract and Gonzales is under contract for another two seasons with a $15 million club option for 2025. Both were important pieces in the Mariners' rotation in 2022, with Flexen compiling a 3.73 ERA, 1.33 WHIP, and 16.1% strikeout rate over 137 2/3 innings and Gonzales posting a 4.13 ERA, 1.33 WHIP, and 13.2% strikeout rate over 183 IP. Regardless of where they land, both pitchers offer minimal fantasy upside due to high WHIP's and low strikeout rates.

  • Mariners Select Four Players

    The Mariners announced Tuesday that they’ve selected the contract of righties Prelander Berroa and Isaiah Campbell and outfielders Cade Marlowe and Jonatan Clase.

  • Mariners Willing To Move Jesse Winker

    According to a tweet from MLB Network's Jon Morosi on Tuesday, the Seattle Mariners are reportedly "willing to move Jesse Winker." Morosi tweeted: "#Mariners have discussed trade possibilities with multiple teams in recent days. Sources say they are willing to move Jesse Winker and either Chris Flexen or Marco Gonzalez. To this point, they are not including Winker and a starter in the same trade proposal. @MLBNetwork @MLB." Acquired by Seattle in a trade with the Cincinnati Reds last offseason, Winker hit .219 with a .344 on-base percentage in 547 plate appearances in his first season in the Pacific Northwest. He also added 14 home runs in those 547 plate appearances. In addition to Winker, Seattle's other outfield options on the 40-man roster include Julio Rodriguez, Sam Haggerty, Taylor Trammell, Jarred Kelenic, Kyle Lewis, Alberto Rodriguez, and Dylan Moore.

  • Julio Rodriguez Named AL Rookie Of The Year

    Seattle Mariners outfielder Julio Rodriguez was named the 2022 Jackie Robinson American League Rookie of the Year on Monday. Rodriguez won the award over Orioles catcher Adley Rutschman and Guardians outfielder Steven Kwan. The 21-year-old J-Rod led all rookies in 2022 in home runs (28), wins above replacement (6.0), OPS (.854), wRC+ (146) and total bases (260). He led AL rookies in slugging percentage at .509 and ranked second among all rookies in RBI (75), runs scored (84) and stolen bases (25). Rodriguez finished third in hits with 145. He joined Mike Trout as the only players in AL/NL history with at least 25 homers, 25 steals and an .800 OPS in their rookie season. He's the fifth player in M's history to win the award and the eighth Dominican-born player to claim the honor.
