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.

Brewers send $2 million back to even out the money. Strange trade. I wonder whether winker is simply transiting through Mke and will also be dealt.

Abraham Toro is a great name.

Given Winker's rep this seems an odd trade. Do the Brewers have somebody in mind for 2B (Toro?) or does this mean they're gonna give Hiura another shot?

Brice Turang and Mike Brosseau are also possibilities, although Turang could replace Adames at short if he is traded.

Are the Brewers in tank mode? Why would they trade Adames? The Cards are gonna take the NLC with 81 wins next year.
