Mallex Smith dealt to Mariners by Rays for Zunino, Heredia | AP sports

Reports: Zunino headed from Mariners to Rays in five-player trade

The Tampa Bay Rays are in the process of acquiring catcher Mike Zunino and outfielder Guillermo Heredia from the Seattle Mariners in exchange for outfielder Mallex Smith according to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic.

The trade is reportedly not done yet. The 6-foot-2, 220-pound backstop entered the league as the No. 3 overall pick in the 2012 MLB June Amateur Draft.

The Rays were one of the most exciting teams in baseball this year, so this trade could just be the best thing for Zunino's career.

This year, Zunino hit.201 with 20 home runs and 44 RBI, while providing his solid defense behind the plate.

FDLE is not investigating vote counting, regardless of what Rick Scott suggested
The state's recount procedures have been revised since Florida held the country hostage for a month 18 years ago, when George W. Elections officials in Broward County, where Democrats have a large advantage, were still reviewing ballots Thursday.

Smith slashed.296/.367/.406 and stole 40 bases in 2018, good for second best in the American League.

The framework of the deal is expected to involved Minor League outfielder Jake Fraley going to Seattle and left-handed pitcher Michael Plassmeyer going to the Rays.

Heredia would have gotten some time in that outfield had he not been included in the potential deal.

Smith was previously with the Mariners for a brief time in early 2017, when he was traded to Seattle from the Braves but he was traded to Tampa soon after, never suiting up for the M's.
