The most interesting part about this trade is where Gordon will play.
After a bad 2016 season, Gordon bounced back past year.
The Marlins also acquired right-handed pitcher Robert Dugger and infielder Christopher Torres. He's under contract through 2020, earning $10.5 million this coming season, $13 million in 2019, and $13.5 million in 2020. The pact includes a $14 million club option for 2021. He was Seattle's second round pick in 2015. Gordon hit.308/.341/.375 in 158 games for the Marlins in 2017, although he has never played the outfield in the major leagues.Читайте также: World War Z is coming to Steam
The Marlins are in cost-cutting mode under new ownership and are also expected to soon deal reigning National League MVP Giancarlo Stanton. He went 11-6 with a 3.45 ERA in 25 starts last season while splitting time at Single-A Modesto and Double-A Arkansas.
Torres, 19, batted.238 with six homers and 22 RBIs in 48 games for Short-A Everett last season. But general manager Jerry Dipoto has not met a trade he didn't like over the last couple offseasons, and having Robinson Cano entrenched at second base was apparently not a factor in swinging a deal for Gordon. However, Gordon will move to center field in Seattle, according to Jim Bowden.
Gordon won a Gold Glove at second base in 2015 but at least on the surface, this move would seem to weaken the Mariners' defense, especially with Dyson on the free agent market.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
