Edwin Encarnación has been traded from the Seattle Mariners to the New York Yankees, sources familiar with the deal tell ESPN. Encarnación currently leads the American League with 21 home runs. The Mariners’ teardown is in full bloom and the Yankees get another big bat.
The New York Yankees have announced that they have acquired 1B/DH Edwin Encarnación from the Seattle Mariners in exchange for RHP Juan Then and cash considerations.
Encarnacion still owed more than $15M in salary and buyout. Source says #Yankees and #Mariners essentially splitting the money. SEA paid more to get better prospect - pitcher Juan Then, who should move into 15-20 range on SEA top prospects list. First with Then: @Joelsherman1
Teamwork makes the dream work. 🤯 #TrueToTheBlue
TRADE: The @Yankees
have acquired 1B/DH Edwin Encarnación from the Seattle Mariners in exchange for RHP Juan Then and cash considerations.
Yankees: We want Encarnacion
Mariners: We want Clint Frazier
Mariners: Give us Juan, Then
#Rays still owe #Mariners $2.5M as part of last winter’s three-team Encarnacion trade (already paid $2.5M on May 1). So amount #Yankees and M’s split will be reduced by that amount. https://t.co/JSUbLpjWWD
#Yankees actually had obtained Juan Then from the #Mariners for Nick Rumbelow. So going back to original organization
Here's one that will likely surprise you. Mariners CF Mallex Smith has the longest active hitting streak in MLB at 13 games.
On May 31, his slash line was .191/.272/.291.
In 13 games in June: .300/.344/.467.
Julio Rodriguez in his 1st 15 games at West Virginia:
.365/.468/.519/.987, 19H, 5 2B, 1HR, 8R, 9RBI, 7BB, 3HBP, 11K. #Mariners
According to @JeffPassan
, the #Yankees have acquired Edwin Encarnacion from the Seattle Mariners.
Logan Gilbert in his 1st pro season:
13G, 4-2, 2.11ERA, 64IP, 48H, 13BB, 88K, .208 BAA. #Mariners
Brian Cashman had this in the works since 2017. Acquired JP Sears and Juan Then for Nick Rumbelow from the Mariners and dealt Then back for Encarnacion. Nick Rumbelow for Encarnacion, JP Sears, and cash to eat some of Encarnacion's contract. He strikes again. https://t.co/N9MoJP5SMP

Let the Austin Nola era commence. #Mariners
Early conversations on where Juan Then fits in my Mariners Top 40 drive me toward 17-25 range.
Updated Athletics vs. Mariners: Frankie Montas gets full support of his teammates in 11-2 win over Seattle to go 9-2, and Bob Melvin doesn't think it's by accident . . . https://t.co/rC5Pljj52M

Whatever dude, they make 600 million dollars in revenue every year. You want the owners to pocket all that money?
And why tf you say this after they make a trade?
Yankees on Verge of Adding Edwin Encarnacion, the A.L. Home Run Leader A deal with the Mariners was near, according to multiple news media reports. Encarnacion was not on the field for Seattle during warm-ups for a game at Oakland.

Fleeced again by Yankees.This is insanity. Mariners trade Juan Then away 2 years ago for Nick Rumbelow. Anybody remember Rumbelow? Then trade our only legit player for a fringe prospect as they did w/ Bruce. After 40+ years, I officially give up. Angels were right. Dipoto sucks
There wasn't even supposed to be an Encarnacion era. The Mariners tried to trade him before he ever put on a SEattle uniform.
Because you lack vision? Or maybe I lack faith in their competence. Time will tell. I’ve never jumped off the Mariners band wagon since I hopped on in 1977, but I’m as close as I’ve ever been. I’m not usually that type of fan but a person can only tolerate so much 🤦♂️😡

Edwin Encarnacion has more HRs in his @Mariners
career than Mike Morse
#mariners twitter is off the hook tonight. Y’all are morons. Pretty sure if I gave either of my older kids twitter accounts they could do better than 90% of what’s out there. They’re 7 and 4, for the record
Caps, Mariners, Cowboys, I don’t know that I have an NBA team so I am going to say Magic.
GOAL! A quick counter attack and Macarthur Rams are leading North Shore Mariners 1-0!
Mariners leadership board is full of idiots and care about Yankees more than Mariners. How many good players were sent there the last two years. I gave up on them until they are gone.
