Mariners Make Six-Player Trade with Rays.

Seattle Mariners Executive Vice President & General Manager of Baseball Operations Jerry Dipoto announced today that Seattle has completed a six-player trade with the Tampa Bay Rays. Seattle has acquired right-handed pitcher Nathan Karns, left-handed pitcher C.J. Riefenhauser and minor league outfielder Boog Powell in exchange for first baseman Logan Morrison, infielder/outfielder Brad Miller and right-handed pitcher Danny Farquhar.

LoMo is a spare part and Farquhar is less than that, but I can’t help but feel like Miller has value. Can anybody shed light on the Rays players in this trade? I assume that this is not the 74-year-old Boog Powell.

Small moves that paid off big

Remember all the fun the Padres had last winter though?

4. Nathan Eovaldi, SP, Yankees: Acquired from the Marlins in December in a trade that sent David Phelps and Martin Prado to Miami, Eovaldi didn’t seem to be making much progress in a Yankees uniform. After surrendering eight runs in two-thirds of an inning against his former team on June 16, he owned a 5.12 ERA through 13 starts, with opponents hitting .329 against him.

But the hard-throwing 25-year-old has turned things around since, going 8-0 with a 2.93 over 12 outings, including his eight scoreless innings on Monday against Houston. It’s a surge that seems to roughly correspond with a grip change on Eovaldi’s splitter. And with CC Sabathia going on the disabled list on Monday, it also looks like Eovaldi will be the only Yankees pitcher to remain in the rotation all season.
