Kolten Wong trade: Mariners send Jesse Winker, Abraham Toro to Brewers

The Seattle Mariners have acquired second baseman Kolten Wong from the Milwaukee Brewers in exchange for outfielder Jesse Winker and infielder Abraham Toro, according to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic.

Wong, 32, is a two-time Gold Glove Award winner who hit for a 118 OPS+ in 2022. He’s entering the final season of his contract, during which he’ll earn $10 million. The Mariners would be wise to pair Wong with a right-handed platoon partner, as he has generally been a below-average contributor versus southpaws. Even so, he should provide the Mariners with good defense, baserunner, and some quality hitting against right-handed pitchers.

The Diamondbacks needed an outfielder?

Takeaways from Jerry Dipoto at GM Meetings

It’s probably getting too far ahead of things to consider that Seattle would extend a contract offer approaching $200 million (or more) for a single player, which is what Carlos Correa, Trea Turner and others will likely net.

“We’re not going to sign all of them, that’s just not how we operate,” Dipoto said. “We will wind up doing some type of trade, and it’ll be a combination of trade and free agency—and we’ve already started to initiate the discussions with teams. My sense is that the middle-infield free-agency market is unlikely to move quickly. But there are a number of players in the corner outfield who fit as well. And there are also a number of guys that might be available in trade that we’re interested in. So, we’re not in a terrible rush.”

If the Mariners are unable to re-sign Haniger, their priorities will shift to adding potentially two corner outfielders and a middle infielder.

Mariners and Jesse Winker are reportedly at odds and butting heads

There was more as well. Here are some of the highlights from that conversation on the radio.

Players are tired of Winker’s act. Tired of putting up with him. The team was frustrated with him.
He wasn’t even with the team and didn’t go to Toronto or Houston. The Mariners likely told him to just go home.
Haniger and Winker are opposites. Haniger puts in all the work, and Winker puts in none. Not to improve defense or his arm, and just isn’t strong enough.
Expected to play just by showing up.
If he didn’t get to play a DH, he would essentially pout, causing other players to have to play all 18 innings.
The team puts in a ton of work to get ready, and he does nothing. Doesn’t follow through with what his responsibilities are.
There are going to be hard conversations with him, or they are just going to move on.
When you put up one of the worst defensive seasons in all of baseball, this isn’t something that can come out about you. All year, I had tried to defend him. Whether it was just a down year with the move, injury, or some combination, I was in his corner still. I rep those Good Vibes, and was trying to do it with Winker.

The Mariners’ season didn’t end how they wanted, but they have plenty to be proud of

Remember, this team was 29-39 at one point this season, then ran off 14 straight wins to vault into playoff contention. That’s far from typical.

As for the faces? There’s 21-year-old center fielder Julio Rodriguez, who is the overwhelming favorite to win AL Rookie of the Year. He signed a long-term contract that might keep him in Seattle for the rest of his career. There is 29-year-old All-Star pitcher Luis Castillo, who just inked a five-year extension of his own. There’s also 24-year-old rookie George Kirby, who just pitched seven scoreless innings Saturday.

These guys didn’t come cheap, either. At least not the first two. Rodriguez’s deal guarantees him over $200 million. Castillo — like teammate Robbie Ray — will net over $100 million. Seemingly stingy at one point, Mariners ownership has shown a willingness to spend, which should lead to their players spending more time on the field in October.

“We’re going to be back here,” Rodriguez said. “I feel like this is just the beginning for all of us.”

Why the Mariners are the team to root for this October

Now, less than one month later and after snapping an agonizing 20-year playoff drought, they will be the hottest ticket in town. For that reason alone, the Mariners will be the darling to root for this October, the club that fans outside the Pacific Northwest will latch on to, those who don’t have a team in the dance or who want to cheer for anybody but the Yankees, Dodgers or other big-market teams.

“It’s a very close-knit team, and it feels almost like a college team, an amateur team,” manager Scott Servais said. “Not particularly a big league team, guys making a lot of money and just out collecting a paycheck. That’s not what this group is about. It’s fun to come to the ballpark every day because they’re focused on one thing and that’s, ‘What’s it going to take to win the game tonight?’”

Once the postseason begins, MLB’s best-kept secret that’s been brewing in this geographically removed part of the country will finally be out on the national stage.

The coin flip that saved baseball in Seattle

This year, tiebreakers themselves have been abandoned. Under the expanded MLB postseason format introduced for 2022, ties are to be settled based on regular-season results, with head-to-head records being the first deciding factor. With 12 total teams now advancing to October, the league opted to let math—not Game 163s—settle any unresolved issues so that the postseason schedule is not held up an extra day.

Back in ’95, though, tiebreakers were still on the table ... as were the bouncing coins.

Because the American League and National League still operated somewhat independently of one another at that time, the AL coin tosses—18 in all—were to take place in the office of AL president Gene Budig. Each team would have a representative on-hand to witness the toss of the coin, which was usually a quarter.

“There was a very complicated formula in the league rules that said you draw lots to determine Team A, B and C, depending on how many ties were possible,” says Phyllis Merhige, a longtime MLB executive who at the time was the AL’s director of public relations and who was in the room for many coin tosses. “So [in a three-way tie], maybe A gets a bye while B plays C. It was a whole complicated thing. And then we’d do the coin flip, and, if you won the flip, you decide whether you would want to host [a tiebreaker] or not.”

Because the vast majority of races were settled without need for a Game 163, it’s not as if clubs dispatched high-powered execs to midtown Manhattan in mid-September to call out “Heads!” or “Tails!” Other than George Steinbrenner sending a team rep as a matter of course (and partial paranoia) whenever the Yankees were involved, clubs were typically content to let a league executive or public relations person represent them.

But for the ’95 toss—the first of the Wild Card era—Armstrong pulled out a slight wild card of his own: He wanted Carolyn Taylor, then the director of special events for MLB, to represent Seattle.

“To call somebody from special events was definitely unusual,” Merhige says. “Only Chuck. That’s Chuck.”

Seattle Mariners end 20-year playoff drought on Cal Raleigh’s walk-off home run

More than an hour after Cal Raleigh ended the longest playoff drought in baseball, he was back on the field with his teammates, circling the perimeter of the field to acknowledge the tens of thousands of fans who still stuck around.

The celebration was more akin to winning something big in October, rather than a victory on the last day of September. But after 21 years, the Seattle Mariners could be excused for going a little over the top upon their return to the playoffs.

“It’s better than maybe what you could dream it to be,” Seattle manager Scott Servais said.

Seattle Mariners, Luis Castillo agree to five-year, $108 million extension

Right-hander Luis Castillo and the Seattle Mariners are in agreement on a five-year contract extension that will keep the prized trade-deadline acquisition part of the ascendant team’s core for the foreseeable future, the team announced on Saturday.

The deal is worth $108 million over the duration of the deal, sources told ESPN.

The contract, which includes a vesting option that could take its total value to $133 million, buys out four years of free agency for the 29-year-old, who has been dominant in eight starts since joining Seattle before the Aug. 2 trade deadline. In 54 innings, Castillo has struck out 64, walked 13 and allowed just five home runs with a 2.83 ERA—even better than the 2.86 ERA he posted in 14 starts with the Cincinnati Reds and a key element in helping push the Mariners to the precipice of their first playoff berth in 21 years.

A two-time All-Star, Castillo will be paid on an annual basis among the upper echelon of pitchers. The deal includes a $7 million signing bonus, a $10 million salary for next season—when he was due to make around $12 million in his final arbitration season before reaching free agency—and annual salaries of $22.75 million from 2024 to ‘27.

The Athletic: The most meaningful moments of the Seattle Mariners’ rebuild [$]

“We had the type of roster where we weren’t young and we weren’t old, we weren’t good and we weren’t bad,” Dipoto said. “We were kind of caught in the middle.”

They also still had 36-year-old veteran second baseman Robinson Canó, who had served an 80-game suspension in 2018 after testing positive for performance-enhancing drugs. Canó, with five years and $120 million remaining on his contract, was, essentially, untradeable.

Or was he?

It was over breakfast at the GM meetings where Dipoto pulled up a chair next to then-Mets general manager Brodie Van Wagenen, who had been on the job for one week.

“I sort of casually said, ‘Do you have any interest in an All-Star second baseman?’” Dipoto told The Athletic in 2021. “He said, ‘Maybe.’ That’s where the discussion started.”

Eventually, Dipoto and Van Wagenen found a deal to their liking: The closer Díaz and Canó for a package of five players, highlighted by the guy that Dipoto wanted all along, outfielder Jarred Kelenic.

Unloading Canó was key for several reasons, including that it helped facilitate a trade that sent Segura to the Phillies for shortstop J.P. Crawford.

“Once we moved Robbie, Jean, who had a full no-trade clause, was more than willing to go elsewhere because he saw what was happening with the club,” Dipoto said.

Ichiro joins exclusive company in Mariners Hall of Fame

“What’s up, Seattle?!” Ichiro shouted, after which he allowed the eager audience to roar back and take in the moment.

Seattle’s franchise icon was beginning a 16-minute speech—which he gave in English—in conjunction with being enshrined in the Mariners Hall of Fame.

“Even though I retired as an active player, baseball and Seattle have never left my heart,” Ichiro said. “Baseball will forever be my soul, and my mission is to keep helping both players and fans appreciate this special game.”

Ichiro is the first member added since 2015, and he joined an exclusive group that includes nine other members (in order of induction): Alvin Davis, Dave Niehaus, Jay Buhner, Edgar Martinez, Randy Johnson, Dan Wilson, Ken Griffey Jr., Lou Piniella and Jamie Moyer, with all in attendance except Johnson and Piniella. One by one, Ichiro shared a message with each, blending in his trademark quick-wit humor with heartfelt respect. He also addressed Piniella.

“Lou kissed me right here on the cheek,” Ichiro said. “The manager gave me a big wet kiss. That doesn’t happen in Japan. I was shocked. Honestly, I was scared. I thought to myself if this is customary in America, I might not make it here. Remember, we won 116 games that year. I wasn’t ready for 116 kisses from the manager.”

Seattle Mariners finalizing long-term extension with breakout rookie Julio Rodriguez, sources say

Seattle Mariners slugger Julio Rodriguez has parlayed his breakout rookie season into a new deal, as the sides are finalizing a massive long-term contract extension, sources told ESPN’s Jeff Passan on Friday.

Rodriguez, 21, is the first rookie in Mariners history to record 20 home runs and 20 stolen bases in the same season, reaching the milestone Wednesday when he hit a solo shot in the eighth inning against the Washington Nationals. He is also the fourth rookie in American League history to accomplish the feat since 2000, joining Mike Trout (2012), Andrew Benintendi (2017) and Randy Arozarena (2021).

Nightmarish 9th inning costs Angels in loss to Mariners

Julio Rodriguez hit a line drive right to second baseman Luis Rengifo. The ball popped out of his glove, but he threw home in time to get Haggerty. The Angels got Haggerty in a rundown, but after Stassi threw the ball to third baseman Jose Rojas, no one had gone to cover home in time to take a throw, and Haggerty scored the tie-breaking run. Loup was supposed to cover the plate, but he stumbled in front of the mound.

Ty France then hit a routine bouncer to shortstop Andrew Velazquez, who could have gone to second to start an inning-ending double play. Instead, he threw home. It was in time to get pinch-runner Dylan Moore, but the ball popped out of Stassi’s glove as he was applying the tag.

Jesse Winker then hit a grounder to Rojas, who couldn’t throw home because he slipped. He got the out at first but another run scored. The Mariners added their fourth run on a single by J.P. Crawford.

After it was all over, Stassi took the blame for the whole mess.

“It’s horrible,” Stassi said. “The loss is on me.”

Seattle Mariners finalizing deal with Cincinnati Reds for Luis Castillo, sources say

The Seattle Mariners are finalizing a deal for star pitcher Luis Castillo of the Cincinnati Reds, sources told ESPN’s Jeff Passan on Friday night.

It wasn’t immediately known the full extent of the trade package.

A 29-year-old right-hander, Castillo is arguably the top starting pitcher on the trade market. He is 4-4 with a 2.86 ERA in 14 starts for the Reds this season and has a career 3.62 ERA in six seasons, all with Cincinnati.

Castillo won’t be eligible for free agency until after the 2023 season, so the Mariners would have him for at least the rest of this year and all of next.

Mariners win 14th in row, Rodríguez key hit to beat Rangers

Julio Rodríguez and Ty France are headed to the All-Star Game, so they won’t be among the Seattle Mariners getting the break their manager says they need.

Yeah, Scott Servais knows that time off thing sounds a little funny.

“It’s hard to say you need a break when you win 14 games in a row,” the Seattle skipper said after a 6-2 victory over the Texas Rangers on Sunday.

Sure is.

Rodríguez hit a two-run double and France homered after joining the rookie sensation on the AL team as the Mariners moved closer to the team record of 15 consecutive wins. That streak came during their most recent playoff season in 2001, when they went 116-46.

The 14-game winning streak is the longest going into an All-Star break in major league history.

Smooth sailing: Santana, Mariners win 8th straight, sweep Jays

Blue Jays first baseman Vladimir Guerrero Jr. had a throw bust through the webbing of his glove and the Seattle Mariners took advantage for their eighth straight win, beating Toronto 6-5 Sunday on two home runs by Carlos Santana.

“Baseball can be cruel sometimes when things aren’t going right,” Toronto manager Charlie Montoyo said.

A day after Santana hit a two-run homer in the seventh inning for a 2-1 win, he connected for a go-ahead, two-run drive in the eighth. The Mariners are 16-3 for their best 19-game stretch since 2003.

“Everything is positive right now, so we have to keep it up,” Santana said. “The energy is great. The fan support, in the clubhouse, teammates are great. When you see that, everything is great.”

Seattle Mariners acquire first baseman Carlos Santana from Kansas City Royals in exchange for RHPs Wyatt Mills, William Fleming

The Seattle Mariners announced Monday that they’ve acquired infielder Carlos Santana from the Kansas City Royals.

The 36-year-old Santana, in his 13th season, is hitting .216 with four home runs and 21 RBIs this season. He is in the final season of a two-year contract that he signed with the Royals in 2021.

The trade sends right-handed pitcher Wyatt Mills and minor league righty William Fleming to the Royals.

Mills, 27, has a 4.15 ERA in 8⅔ innings for the Mariners this season but is 1-0 with a 1.83 ERA in 19⅔ innings for Triple-A Tacoma.

Fleming, 23, is 6-6 with a 4.92 ERA in 14 starts for the Mariners’ Single-A franchise in Modesto.

Eight ejected after wild brawl between Seattle Mariners, Los Angeles Angels

The Seattle Mariners and Los Angeles Angels engaged in a lengthy full-team brawl in the second inning on Sunday after tensions over two days of inside pitches boiled over.

Seattle manager Scott Servais, Los Angeles interim manager Phil Nevin and six players were ejected after the brouhaha, which stopped and started twice before Angels closer Raisel Iglesias came back out to the empty field to throw large containers of sunflower seeds and gum onto the infield.

Seattle lost three of the first four hitters in its lineup: Jesse Winker, Julio Rodriguez and J.P. Crawford. Angels pitchers Iglesias, Andrew Wantz and Ryan Tepera also were tossed.

The Mariners’ Winker was hit by the first pitch of the second inning by Angels opener Wantz, who also had thrown a pitch behind the head of Rodriguez in the first inning.

The first pitch to Rodriguez appeared to be a response to Erik Swanson’s 95 mph fastball near Mike Trout’s head in the ninth inning Saturday night, a throw that infuriated the three-time American League MVP. The umpires gathered together after Wantz’s pitch but only issued warnings to both dugouts.

“That probably shouldn’t happen in the game, what happened out there today,” Servais said. “Emotions running high, but it was pretty clear what was going on. They switched, put an opener in there to throw some balls at us. Got out of hand from there, and kind of a black eye.”

Bronx Banter: DeRosa: Leave the Gun. Take the Cannoli.

Oh, my good goodness gracious! Of all the dramatic things I’ve ever seen. Clemenza standing right in…the way of a Montero/Pineda thought!

So when I heard Jesus Montero was traded for Michael Pineda, I felt like we were trading a neck for a necktie. Sure, the tie is important, but without the neck, what’s the point?

Even without the catching, I’ll take Montero’s simple, solid bat over the complex musculature of Pineda’s throwing arm. You can watch Montero hit every game, all season long. There’s no better way to interface with a team than through a star hitter, especially for a young fan, because he’s always in the lineup.

I understand that having Pineda in the rotation probably makes the 2012 Yankees a better team than they would have been with Montero as the DH. But in 2013? And 2014?

Arod and Teixeira are already fractions of what they once were and they will be declining in the lineup for years to come. The Yankees have one big hitter in his prime, Cano, who is fierce but not flawless. You don’t have to squint too hard to see a Yankee team desperate for hitting.

The more I think about the trade, the more comfortable I am with Cashman’s logic and his vision. But I am firmly on the Montero side of the debate. It boils down to this: if they both become stars, I’d want Montero to be a Yankee.

Oakland manager Melvin excited about Japan series

The Athletics and Seattle Mariners open the regular season with a two-game series at Tokyo Dome on March 28-29. Many hoped the series would feature a showdown between Matsui and countryman Ichiro Suzuki, but Melvin said the A’s likely wont be re-signing the 37-year-old free agent Matsui.

“Matsui was a great fit for us last year and we all loved having him on our team,’’ Melvin said at a press conference on Monday to promote the series. “But this year it doesn’t look like a fit for us based on the personnel we have going forward.’‘

...Suzuki also had a down season in 2011. For the first time in his career, He failed to reach 200 hits - finishing with 184 - and hit a career-worst .272. Other numbers were lower too, including on-base percentage, infield hits and home runs, while he struck out a career-high 69 times.

Former Seattle star Ken Griffey Jr., who now serves as a special consultant to the Mariners, said he expects Suzuki to bounce back this season.

“Ichiro is going to be fine, you can ask these two guys (Melvin, Wedge) if a guy had 184 hits they wouldn’t be complaining,’’ Griffey said. “But you are looking at a guy who is a special athlete. He had one hiccup in his career and come this time next year we won’t even be talking about this. He is going to come into this season determined and with a little fire.’‘

Hiccup?...That was a freakin’ Dave McNally tally if ever!

Goldman: The Montero-Pineda Trade: Rotation Upgrade at a Sustainable Cost

Or as Barnald points out…“But this is the part of the upgrade that scares me!”

Pineda’s fastball sits around 95 and goes higher, and he has a swing-and-miss slider to go with it. There is also a changeup, but it’s notional and—well, you know all of this stuff if you’ve been on line at all today. Here are the negatives you’re going to hear about:

• He dominated right-handed hitters, but the lack of a good change means that lefties hit, well, still not well, but better.
• His ERA was 2.92 in pitcher-friendly Safeco, 4.40 on the road.
• His first-half ERA was 3.03, his second-half ERA was 5.12.
• He has fly-ball tendencies, which is a problem in Yankee Stadium.
• Batters hit .261 on balls in play, and such things don’t last.
• They could have gotten Cliff Lee or Felix Hernandez for him.
• He could get hurt.
• He cost the Yankees Jesus Montero, a very fine young hitter.
