Marlins trade Dee Gordon to Mariners

Mariners acquire Dee Gordon from the Marlins

On Thursday, the Seattle Mariners made a creative deal, acquiring second baseman Dee Gordon and worldwide bonus money from the Miami Marlins in exchange for three prospects (here's a closer look at how the Marlins made out in the deal).

The Mariners have announced the details of the trade, with three minor leaguers headed to the Marlins for Gordon and $1 million in global signing bonus money. He's under contract through 2020, earning $10.5 million this coming season, $13 million in 2019, and $13.5 million in 2020.

Gordon, 29, finished the 2017 season batting.308/.341/.375 with 114 runs scored and a major league best 60 stolen bases in 695 plate appearances.

Seattle selected Neidert in the second round of the 2015 draft. MLB Pipeline rated him the Mariners' second-best prospect. Over 48 games with Everett of the Northwest League, he hit.238/.324/.435 with 13 stolen bases and 20 extra base hits.

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

The Marlins are no stranger to trading off veteran players to reduce payroll, it's just that the two previous times they did it was after a World Series win.

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

But as Dipoto hinted and reports confirmed, the Mariners plan to use Gordon in center field, a position Dipoto addressed as an area of need since Jarrod Dyson became a free agent at the end of the season. It's in this that Gordon is expected to play center in Seattle.

The Mariners now have $3.557 million in worldwide slot money, giving them the most among the seven finalists in the Shohei Ohtani sweepstakes.
