  • Mariners' Jose Lobaton: Signs with Mariners

    Lobaton signed a minor-league contract with the Mariners on Monday, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.

    The deal includes an invitation to spring training, where Lobaton will compete with David Frietas for the backup catcher spot. The veteran backstop appeared in just 22 games for the Mets in 2018, hitting .143/.246/.224. Even if Lobaton breaks camp with the Mariners, he doesn't figure to provide much fantasy value given his career .215/.293/.319 triple-slash.

  • Mariners' Kaleb Cowart: Headed to Seattle

    Cowart was claimed off waivers by the Mariners on Monday.

    A first-round pick back in 2010, Cowart has hit a miserable .177/.241/.293 in 162 major-league games over parts of four seasons with the Angels. His versatility is interesting, as he appeared at all four infield positions as well as left field last season, but he's yet to hit well enough to deserve a roster spot even as a utility man. The rebuilding Mariners have at-bats available, but Cowart has shown very little reason to believe that he'll seize the opportunity and suddenly become a significant fantasy asset. Cowart will get the chance to try to be a two-way player, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports, which could theoretically make him interesting in some leagues, but the odds of an effective performance on either side of the ball are low.

  • Mariners' Tommy Milone: Signs with Seattle

    Milone agreed to a minor-league contract with the Mariners on Saturday, Pete Kerzel of MASN Sports reports.

    Milone appeared in five major-league games for the Nationals this past year (four starts), logging a 5.81 ERA and 1.44 WHIP with a 23:1 K:BB across 26.1 innings. He spent a majority of the year at the Triple-A level, which is where he will likely begin the 2019 campaign while adding some extra depth to Seattle's system.

  • Mariners' Justin Dunn: Swapped to Seattle

    Dunn was traded from the Mets to the Mariners on Monday along with Jay Bruce, Anthony Swarzak, Jarred Kelenic and Gerson Bautista in exchange for Edwin Diaz, Robinson Cano and cash considerations, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.

    Dunn has mid-rotation upside, with a fastball that can touch 97 mph, but it's possible his shaky command eventually prevents him from reaching that ceiling. His slider is a swing-and-miss offering and he made strides with his changeup in 2018. He reached Double-A Binghamton, making 15 starts and posting a 4.22 ERA while striking out 27.7 percent of batters and walking 9.8 percent. He has a shot to reach the majors in 2019 but is most likely tracking towards a 2020 debut.

  • Mariners' Jarred Kelenic: Traded to Mariners

    Kelenic was traded from the Mets to the Mariners on Monday along with Jay Bruce, Anthony Swarzak, Justin Dunn and Gerson Bautista in exchange for Edwin Diaz, Robinson Cano and cash considerations, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.

    Kelenic will wind up having spent just a few months with the organization that selected him sixth overall in the 2018 draft. In 56 games at the rookie-ball level, the center fielder hit .286/.371/.468, adding six homers and 15 steals. He's a potential cross-category contributor once he reaches the majors, though that's still several years away.

  • Mariners' Jay Bruce: Sent to Seattle

    Bruce will head from the Mets to the Mariners along with Anthony Swarzak, Jarred Kelenic, Justin Dunn and Gerson Bautista in exchange for Edwin Diaz, Robinson Cano and cash considerations once all physicals have been completed Monday, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.

    A three-time All-Star, Bruce has fallen off recently to the point that he's primarily salary filler in this trade, as he hit just .223/.310/.370 last season while battling back and hip injuries. There's a chance that a return to health could see him get back to the decent form he showed in 2016 and 2017, when he hit at least .250 with at least 33 homers in each season, but he'll be 32 years old in early April, so a continued decline wouldn't be unexpected. Fortunately for Bruce, the Mariners do not have many quality young players to push him for playing time, so he should be given regular at-bats while hitting in the middle of the lineup, at least in the early going.

  • Mariners' Carlos Santana: Headed to Seattle

    The Mariners agreed in principle Monday to acquire Santana from the Phillies, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.

    The trade won't be confirmed until all players involved have passed their physicals, but Sherman relays that the Mariners will also acquire J.P. Crawford, while Jean Segura is the principal piece heading to Philadelphia. Santana's departure should pave the way for Rhys Hoskins to reclaim an everyday role at first base in Philadelphia, while the move to Seattle allows the veteran to serve as a designated hitter and corner-infield option. Though he's always liable to be a drain in the batting-average category, Santana retains exceptional plate discipline and above-average pop as he heads into his age-33 campaign. He's supplied no fewer than 18 home runs and an on-base percentage no worse than .352 in any of the past eight seasons.

  • Mariners' J.P. Crawford: Shipped to Seattle

    Crawford was traded to Seattle on Monday along with Carlos Santana in exchange for Jean Segura, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.

    There are reportedly other pieces of the deal yet to be disclosed. Formerly a very highly rated prospect, Crawford has yet to put things together at the big-league level, recording a .214/.333/.358 slash line, though he's still just 23 and has appeared in just 72 games. He improved to .255/.369/.479 over his last 42 games after an early season swing adjustment, suggesting that he's not far off from living up to his promise. He'll have a clearer path to playing time in Seattle and could thrive in a regular role, though his carrying tools are defense and the ability to take a walk, so he may help the Mariners more than he helps most fantasy teams.
