Mariners Acquire Gordon As Marlins Pick Up Trio Of Prospects | BaseballAmerica.com

Mariners acquire:

Dee Gordon, 2B/CF

Age: 29

A two-time all-star with the Dodgers and Marlins, Gordon will move to the outfield for the first time in his eight-year big league career in 2018. Gordon’s plus speed, which helped him to a major league-best 60 stolen bases last season, should help ease the transition, however. As long as Gordon proves he is capable of playing an average centerfield, his bat should help the Mariners immediately. Last season, the Mariners’ primary centerfielder was Jarrod Dyson, who hit .251/.324/.350 in 111 games––all numbers in which Gordon should be able to match, and surpass, with a repeat of his offensive production from a year ago.

Mariners acquire Mike Leake | MLB.com

With the Mariners three games out of an American League Wild Card spot, general manager Jerry Dipoto moved to bolster his injury-racked rotation by acquiring veteran right-hander Mike Leake from the Cardinals on Wednesday for Minor League infielder Rayder Ascanio.
...
Players acquired prior to Thursday’s waiver trade deadline are eligible to compete in the postseason, but Leake is more than just a one-month rental, as the 29-year-old still has three more years and about $55 million remaining on a five-year contract he signed with St. Louis following the 2015 season.

Dealing For Further-Away Prospects An Emerging Trend | BaseballAmerica.com

At the rate baseball is going, by 2020 teams will be signing international prospects on July 2 and trading them on July 3.

In the never-ending attempts to find an edge, the 2017 trade deadline has shown a developing pattern. Teams are willing to dig deeper into the furthest recesses of farm systems in an attempt to land a bargain.

Already a full one-fifth of Baseball America’s 2016 Top 20 Dominican Summer League Prospects list has swapped teams. Royals middle infielder Esteury Ruiz became the latest high-upside-if-far-away prospect to get a new home as he was traded to the Padres in the Trevor Cahill-Ryan Buchter-Brandon Maurer trade. Before him the Rays acquired Carlos Vargas from the Mariners, Jose King went to the Tigers in the recent J.D. Martinez trade and Brayan Hernandez was sent to the Marlins for David Phelps.
