White Sox Acquire Relief Prospect Thyago Vieira From Mariners For Cash

Published

on

A day after acquiring slugger Ryon Healy, Seattle Mariners general manager Jerry Dipito made another move Thursday, sending right-handed relief prospect Thyago Vieira to the Chicago White Sox in exchange for $500,000 in international slot money.

Jonathan Mayo has you covered with the facts:

Shohei Ohtani would definitely make a solid Mariners lineup that much better. Adding him to a lineup that includes Robinson Cano, Nelson Cruz, and Kyle Seager- now that would be some serious pop at Safeco.

Dipito points out that adding to the international-signing bonus pool “provides the potential for many positive player procurement outcomes.”

We’ll see what this means for Seattle, as well as how serious their push for Ohtani will be.

The 24-year-old Vieira was the No. 8 prospect for the Mariners. After the trade, Chicago has him ranked in their organization as No. 20, MLB.com’s Greg Johns reports.

Vieira made his Major League debut on August 14 of this year and pitched a perfect inning with a strikeout against the Baltimore Orioles. He didn’t make another appearance in 2017.

In 41 minor league games this year, Vieira posted an ERA of exactly 4.00 in 54 innings. He appeared in 12 triple-A games, allowing nine earned runs in 17 2/3 innings for the Tacoma Rainiers.
