The Mariners acquired DHA Edwin EncarnaciA³n as part of a three-team trade that involved the Indians and Rays back in December.

After winning 89 games last season, the Mariners held a fire sale, tradingA James PaxtonA to the Yankees; Alex ColomA© to the White Sox; Robinson CanA³ andA Edwin DA­az to the Mets; andA Jean Segura,A Juan Nicasio, andA James PazosA to the Phillies.A According to Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times,A EncarnaciA³n could be next. The club informed him of its intention to move him after bringing him to Seattle and it seems that is still the case.

EncarnaciA³n, 36, has one year remaining on his contract at $20 million along with a 2020 club option worth $20 million with a $5 million buyout. Last season with the Indians, he hit .246/.336/.474 with 32 home runs and 107 RBI in 579 plate appearances.
