Marlins Trade Dee Gordon To Seattle For 3 Prospects

Marlins Trade Dee Gordon To Seattle For 3 Prospects

Hot stove season has arrived in earnest - on Thursday afternoon, the Miami Marlins traded second baseman Dee Gordon to the Seattle Mariners.

Seattle also received worldwide slot money from Miami in exchange for minor leaguers Robert Dugger, Nick Neidert and Christopher Torres. Miami will also send $1 million in global slot money, which the Mariners could use to entice Japanese pitcher Shohei Ohtani.

After serving an 80-game performance-enhancing drug suspension in 2016, Gordon returned this season with a.308/.341/.375 slash line with 114 runs scored and 60 stolen bases.

This story is breaking and will be updated as more information becomes available. And the two years prior to that, Gordon had a combined 122 steals.

Gordon, 29, is a gold-glove infielder known for his speed.

The return for the Marlins is interesting - 2015 second-round pick Nick Neidert, who was the 2017 California League (high-A) pitcher of the year, is the highlight of the trade.

Assuming Seattle takes on Gordon's entire contract, Miami has chopped their projected 2018 payroll to just over $120 million. But general manager Jerry Dipoto has not met a trade he didn't like over the last couple offseasons, and having Robinson Cano entrenched at second base was apparently not a factor in swinging a deal for Gordon. His professional experience in the outfield consists of a handful of games for Licey in the Dominican Winter League following the 2013 MLB season.

The St. Louis Cardinals have also sought the right fielder, with each team offering a package of prospects. He has a club option for 2021 worth $14 million with a $1 million buyout. This suggests that Gordon will move to center field.
