by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

The Blue Jays have acquired outfielder Michael Saunders from the Mariners for pitcher J.A. Happ, according to ESPN. CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman has confirmed the deal.

The 28-year-old Saunders is coming off a season in which he hit .273/.341/.450 over 231 at-bats. He had been mentioned as a popular trade candidate all offseason. Saunders is entering his second year of arbitration, and is set to become a free-agent following the 2016 season.

Happ, 32, posted a 4.22 ERA over 158 innings with Toronto. The Blue Jays picked up his $6.7 million option earlier in the offseason. He'll be a free-agent at the end of the year.
