Mariners Land Trumbo From D-Backs In 6-Player Swap
Will Mark Trumbo take the pressure off the struggling Robinson Cano?
On Wednesday, the Seattle Mariners added a power bat and a left handed pitcher in a 6-player trade with the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Prior to the trade Trumbo was batting .259, with 10 doubles, three triples, nine home runs, and 23 RBI for the D-Backs so far this season.
With the recent slide, in which they have lost five straight games, the Mariners are looking for another bat to complement Nelson Cruz, which may also take some pressure off the slumping Robinson Cano.
