Mariners get speedy Dee Gordon from Marlins in trade

08 December 2017

The Seattle Mariners general manager made another splashy move of the offseason, acquiring speed-demon and two-time All-Star Dee Gordon in a trade with the Miami Marlins on Thursday, the Mariners confirmed. They will also receive $1 million in worldwide slot money, per MLB.com's Mark Feinsand.

Gordon is guaranteed $38 million over the remainder of his contract, which calls for salaries of $10.5 million, $13 million and $13.5 million in the next three seasons.

Gordon, 29, hit a robust.308 with an NL-best 60 stolen bases and 114 runs scored for the Marlins last season.

Dugger, 22, was selected by the Mariners in the 18th round of the 2016 draft. MLBPipeline ranked him as the second-best prospect in Seattle's organization at the time of the deal. The infielder spent most of last season at Low-A Everett, batting.238/.324/.435 in 220 plate appearances.

If the regulation is voted, it could give each state the individual power to regulate sports betting on their territory. Following the agreement all the parties have withdrawn from all litigation in the United States and UK.

19-year old Christopher Torres is also an interesting piece, ranking as the seventh-best prospect in the organization before the trade.

Meanwhile, the baseball world continues to hold its breath while waiting to see where National League MVP Giancarlo Stanton ends up.

Additionally, SiriusXM's Jim Bowden is reporting that Seattle will have Gordon play center field as they already have Robinson Cano playing second base. Miami will also send $1 million in worldwide slot money, which the Mariners could use to entice Japanese pitcher Shohei Ohtani. This suggests that Gordon will move to center field. While Gordon has never played centre in the majors, the Mariners believe he can make the transition and fill perhaps the biggest remaining need among their position players.
