Miami Marlins trade second baseman Dee Gordon to Seattle Mariners

Mariners Acquire Dee Gordon, and Get a Better Shot at Ohtani

Dee Gordon is headed for a new team and a new position.

Though Gordon has previously played the infield, the Mariners have said he will move to the outfield, likely centerfield.

With Robinson Cano firmly entrenched as the Mariners starting second baseman, Gordon will play center field for his new team. The Mariners don't have much of anything in the outfield - Mitch Haniger did a good job in right field when healthy (.282/.352/.491 with 16 homers), but Jarrod Dyson couldn't hit, Ben Gamel couldn't field, and rookie Guillermo Heredia wasn't too hot in either department.

Gordon led the majors, again, with 60 stolen bases this past season, while hitting.308 with a.341 on-base percentage in what Dipoto certainly hopes is one of a few offseason additions, which could also include Japanese sensation Shohei Ohtani. He's played exclusively at second and short in the majors, winning a Gold Glove for his work at the position in 2015. They have reached the parameters of a potential deal to trade Stanton to the San Francisco Giants. Presumably, the Mariners are picking up most or all of Gordon's remaining contract.

Veritas Asset Mngmt Limited Liability Partnership holds 5.57% in Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) or 10.34 million shares. Jennison Associates Ltd Limited Liability Company stated it has 1.21 million shares or 0.06% of all its holdings.

Seattle selected Neidert in the second round of the 2015 draft.

He struck out 122 batters while walking just 22 in 127.2 innings pitched. He did struggle in AA over six starts, notching a 6.56 ERA with 13 strikeouts and five walks. MLB Pipeline rated him the Mariners' second-best prospect.

19-year old Christopher Torres is also an interesting piece, ranking as the seventh-best prospect in the organization before the trade. The Mariners will get Gordon along with $1 million in global pool money - the latter allowing them to make an even more compelling case to Japanese star Shohei Ohtani by offering him up to $3.55 million to sign.

Bring on the Winter Meetings!
