The Seattle Mariners have agreed to a trade with the Oakland Athletics that will land them first baseman Yonder Alonso in return for minor league outfielder Boog Powell, the team announced on Snuday.

“Surprised but excited, going to a team that is one game out of the playoffs,” Alonso said via the San Francisco Chronicle.

“I get to play some meaningful baseball, which will be probably the first time in my career I’ll be able to do that. I’m ecstatic.”

“I can’t thank the Oakland A’s enough for the opportunity they gave me,” Alonso said. “They believed in me and helped me mature and recharge my career.”

Alonso, 30, is batting .266 with a career-high 22 home runs and 49 RBIs, a career year for the 1st baseman.

Powell has hit .194 with zero home runs and 2 RBIs in 23 games with the Mariners this season.

This one, just doesn’t make much sense if the plan is to move Andujar to make room for the likes of Manny Machado.

According to The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal and Robert Murray, the Yankees are “open to moving” Andjuar via trade, but there is no clear trade path to reference at this time.

This development clearly shows the Yankees desire to sign Machado to a free agent deal.

The Yankees and Mets have also been linked in a potential deal that could see Noah Syndergaard end up in New York, with Andujar on his way out.
