Dee Gordon traded to the Seattle Mariners


Recommended Posts

Per Ken Rosenthal 


Gordon to the Mariners for RHP Nick Neidert (Seattle's #2 prospect), IF Christopher Torres (#7 prospect), and RHP Robert Dugger. Seattle picks up the entirety of the $38 million remaining on Gordon's contract. Marlins also send $1 million in international pool money. 


Mariners wanted to get better on the basepaths and plan to play Gordon in center field not second base.

This is a good haul, Neidert is considered an elite prospect but a bit old:

Didn't think I'd react this way but I feel like I'm not caring so much about Gordon leaving (though I'll miss him) or about what the return is... I'm feeling more like excited that the steps to the rebuild are finally happening. I know this is gonna be bumpy but it kinda feels like we just started the engines and it's like "allright let's do this!" 


Also super happy to read they took the entire contract.
