  • Mariners' Erik Swanson: Protected from Rule 5 draft

    Swanson had his contract purchased from Triple-A Tacoma on Tuesday.

    Swanson, one of three player acquired from the Yankees in exchange for James Paxton, was added to the Mariners' 40-man roster in advance of the Rule 5 draft. The 25-year-old posted a combined 2.66 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 139:29 K:BB across 121.2 innings with Double-A Trenton and Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in 2018. With his move to Seattle, Swanson will be a candidate to start for the Mariners at some point in 2019.

  • Mariners' Erik Swanson: Sent to Mariners

    Swanson was traded from the Yankees to the Mariners on Monday along with Justus Sheffield and Don Thompson-Williams in exchange for James Paxton, Corey Brock of The Athletic reports.

    Swanson, a 25-year-old right-hander who has yet to debut in the majors, is the least exciting minor-leaguer headed to Seattle in Monday's blockbuster deal, although he could be the first to play in the big leagues for the Mariners. He spent the bulk of the 2018 season between Double-A Trenton and Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, posting a combined 2.66 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 139:29 K:BBB across 121.2 innings (24 appearances, 22 starts). This trade boosts his stock in dynasty leagues, as he was not going to get much of a look as a starter for the Yankees, whereas the Mariners should have no trouble giving him starts early in the 2019 season.

  • Mariners' Dom Thompson-Williams: Shipped to Mariners

    Thompson-Williams was traded to the Mariners along with Justus Sheffield and Erik Swanson in exchange for James Paxton, Corey Brock of The Athletic reports.

    Thompson-Williams has some very intriguing tools and broke out in 2018, although he turns 24 in April and has not yet reached Double-A, so skepticism is warranted. It is undeniable that he has plus raw power -- he led all Yankees minor leaguers with 22 home runs in 100 games last year. However, he struck out 25.3 percent of the time as a 23-year-old at High-A, so it is fair to wonder if he will be able to hit for a decent average in the upper levels of the minors. He is also an above-average runner, so if he hits, he could be a significant fantasy contributor in a couple years.

  • Mariners' Justus Sheffield: Dealt to Mariners

    Sheffield was traded to the Mariners along with Dom Thompson-Williams and Erik Swanson in exchange for James Paxton, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

    Like Paxton, Sheffield is left-handed and sits in the mid-90s with his fastball. His prospect stock has slipped since early in the 2018 season, as his stuff has backed up slightly. This move improves Sheffield's stock in dynasty leagues, since he should now have no problem joining a big-league rotation fairly early in the 2019 season, whereas the Yankees may have kept him at Triple-A for further development or deployed him out of the bullpen. In addition to Sheffield's plus fastball, he has a plus slider and will flash an average or better changeup. His stuff plays down slightly due to his fringe command, but he can dominate when he is throwing strikes. The Mariners are in a full rebuild, so they may play service-time games with Sheffield early in the season, but he should be up in the big leagues at some point in the first half if he is performing well.

  • Mariners' Braden Bishop: Added to 40-man roster

    Bishop (forearm) was added to Seattle's 40-man roster in order to protect him from the upcoming Rule 5 draft, Greg Johns of reports.

    Bishop played in 84 games for Double-A Arkansas this past year before going down with a fractured forearm in July. He wound up undergoing season-ending surgery shortly thereafter, but the 25-year-old should be fully recovered by the time spring training rolls around. Bishop slashed .284/.361/.412 with eight home runs, 33 RBI and five stolen bases and could be in the mix for a promotion to Triple-A Tacoma in 2019.

  • Mariners' Ruben Alaniz: Signs with Mariners

    Alaniz signed a contract with the Mariners on Thursday.

    Alaniz spent the majority of the 2018 campaign with Triple-A Durham, posting a 4.00 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 35:8 K:BB across 27 innings of relief for the Bulls when healthy -- he made two trips to the disabled list. It's somewhat interesting that the 27-year-old, who has yet to appear in the majors, inked a major-league deal, but the Mariners apparently like what the right-hander has to offer. Alaniz will likely serve as bullpen depth in 2019.

  • Mariners' Austin Nola: Signs deal with Seattle

    Nola agreed to a minor-league contract with the Mariners on Friday, Mariners Minors reports.

    Nola appeared in 69 games for Triple-A New Orleans last year, piecing together a .279/.370/.376 slash line with two homers and 32 RBI. He figures to begin the 2019 campaign with Triple-A Tacoma.

  • Mariners' Dylan Moore: Agrees to deal with Seattle

    Moore signed a major-league contract with the Mariners on Friday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

    Moore spent a majority of the 2018 season at the Triple-A level within Milwaukee's system, slashing .280/.346/.492 with 11 home runs, 40 RBI and 17 stolen bases in hitter-friendly Colorado Springs. The 26-year-old has the ability to play all across the diamond, which includes a little outfield, though he was primarily utilized as a shortstop or third baseman in recent years. Moore has yet to play in the majors but will get a chance to crack the Mariners' Opening Day roster this spring.
