Seattle de-loading for some action.
For anyone thinking all of the risk on early guaranteed contracts is with the Player, Evan White signed a 6/24 contract pre-service and has done absolutely nothing and now is part of a salary dump (still owed 15M this year and next). Marco Gonzolexz owed 12+ M this year before FA and they sent both contracts to the Braves with flawed uber-prospect Kelenic.
Seattle has given away Suarez, non-tendered Mike Ford (walk-off vs Felix), dumped MarcoG and White....
They need a 3B, 2B, 1B/DH, LF and RF. They have pitching to trade so they're lining up for something.
Rumor outlets have Snell with a hard-on to go home to Seattle so that's a 1-2 with Luis Castillo if they figure it out and they can add another young pitcher to the trade pile.
They could deal Gilbert to the Twins and get a load of offensive players back (Larnach, Lewis/Lee, Kriloff) that also helps MIN get some of their costs down (Kepler, Polonco)
Robbie Ray is a guy I'd (O's) check in on. If they are looking to move salary for other moves (like Snell) maybe you get them to eat a big chunk as he returns from TJS sometime in 2024.
Dipoto going to Dipoto.
