Mariners now have most money to offer Shohei Ohtani

Mariners now have most money to offer Shohei Ohtani

While everybody was focused on where the Marlins would send (or be forced to send, as it were) Giancarlo Stanton, the Mariners helped Miami pull off another major trade.

"We're going to play Dee in center field", Dipoto said via the Mariners' website. "His athleticism will be an asset both in our lineup and in the middle of our outfield for several seasons to come".

The fielding aspect of this deal may be what's most interesting, given the fact that Gordon has never played a game in the outfield at the major league level.

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. One really interesting note from the trade is that the Mariners acquired $1 million in worldwide pool money as part of the deal, per MLB.com's Mark Feinsand.

That's more than the Rangers reportedly had available, which would mean the Mariners could offer Ohtani the biggest signing bonus of any of the seven finalists remaining. Over 48 games with Everett of the Northwest League, he hit.238/.324/.435 with 13 stolen bases and 20 extra base hits. And the two years prior to that, Gordon had a combined 122 steals. He led the National League with 205 hits his first season in Miami in 2015 and won the NL batting title (.333). The Marlins indicated a willingness to trade Gordon in recent weeks because of that financial commitment, and they could be alright with infield depth due to the presence of Derek Dietrich at either second or third, JT Riddle at short, and potentially, veteran Martin Prado at the position Dietrich doesn't play (assuming Prado also doesn't get traded). He is the only active player to bat at least.300 while stealing at least 50 bases in multiple seasons (2015 and 2017).

Seattle has eight-time All-Star Robinson Cano at second base and is expected to move Gordon to centre field.

The Mariner are taking on all of Gordon's salary, according to multiple reports.

Gordon did play nine games in center field with Tigres del Licey in the Dominican Republic in the 2013-14 season.

The St. Louis Cardinals have also sought the right fielder, with each team offering a package of prospects.
