The New Guys – Jackson & Denorfia

Jackson-Denorfia

The newest Seattle Mariners, Austin Jackson and Chris Denorfia, are in uniform and in tonight’s starting lineup vs. the Baltimore Orioles at Camden Yards.

Mariners add Jackson & Denorfia on Deadline Day

Gathered with his brain trust in a hotel room in Cleveland, Jack Zduriencik remade the Mariners outfield with a pair of trades today that should bolster Seattle’s offense while leaving the big league club untouched.

Zduriencik first acquired right-handed hitting outfield Chris Denorfia from the San Diego Padres in exchange for minor league outfielder Abraham Almonte and minor league right-handed reliever Stephen Kohlscheen.

Using that as a warm-up, Zduriencik later obtained outfielder Austin Jackson from Detroit, sending minor league infielder Nick Franklin to Tampa Bay as part of 3-team trade.

“I feel good about what we did today. You go back a few days ago and we brought Kendrys Morales on board…And now we’ve gone out and got a true leadoff hitter/center fielder and added a nice player who can play all three outfield spots on be a bat off the bench, especially against left-handers,” Zduriencik said.

“At the same time, we held on to what we think our primary prospects,” Zduriencik added. “We’re not sitting here donating players to make somebody else better. Forget about it.”

“I think defensively (Jackson is) one of the top three center fielders in all of baseball,” Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said. “He gets those kinds of jumps and he plays in the biggest center field in all of baseball in Detroit. Offensively, if you look at his numbers, this guy is pretty accomplished.”

With Zduriencik in Cleveland were Asst. GM Jeff Kingston, Director of Player Development Chris Gwynn, Director of Amateur Scouting Tom McNamara, Director of Pro Scouting Tom Allison and Major League scout Lee MacPhail Jr.

Austin Jackson

Austin Jackson

Jackson, 27, will wear #16 and join the Mariners in time for their series in Baltimore starting tomorrow at Oriole Park.

“I talked to (McClendon) for a little bit and he’s excited,” Jackson said. “They kind of talked to me about some things and what they’re trying to get done.”

The right-hander was hitting .273 (102×374) with 52 runs, 25 doubles, 5 triples, 4 home runs and 33 RBI in 100 games with the Tigers. Against left-handed pitching this season he is hitting .330 (33×100) with 6 doubles, 1 triple, 1 home run, 7 RBI, a .397 on-base percentage and an .851 OPS.

Over his last 48 games since June 5 is hitting .314 (58×185) and in July is hitting .349 (38×109) with 18 runs, 10 doubles, 2 triples, 1 home run, 11 RBI and an .894 OPS in 26 games.

He entered the day tied for the American League lead with 8 sacrifice flies and sixth with 5 triples.

In five Major League seasons, all with Detroit, he is hitting .277 (743×2678) with 447 runs, 140 doubles, 43 triples, 46 home runs and 234 RBI in 670 career games. He was originally drafted by the New York Yankees in the 8th round of the 2005 amateur draft. He was traded to Detroit in December of 20­09 in a three-team, seven-player trade that included Arizona.

Chris Denorfia

Chris Denorfia

Denorfia, 34, will wear #28 and will also join the Mariners in time for their series in Baltimore starting tomorrow at Oriole Park.

He was hitting .242 (60×248) with 25 runs, 10 doubles, 3 triples, 1 home run and 16 RBI in 89 games with San Diego. In his career against left-handed pitchers, he is hitting .301 (231×768) with 45 doubles, 5 triples, 18 home runs, 83 RBI and an .809 OPS. He has appeared in all three outfield positions this season (RF-55, LF-26, CF-14) and in his career he has appeared in over 150 games at each position (RF-331, LF-241, CF-164).

Originally signed by the Cincinnati Reds as a 19th-round selection in the 2002 First-Year Player Draft, he was signed by the Padres as a minor league free agent in December 2009. Over parts of nine Major League seasons with the Reds (2005-06), Athletics (2008-09) and Padres (2010-14), he has hit .275 (514-for-1868) with 90 doubles, 15 triples, 36 home runs, 173 RBI and 260 runs scored in 673 games played.

“I’m excited for the potential, for the future. I’m looking forward to going up there…to being myself, giving quality at-bats off the bench and vs. left-handers,” Denorfia said.

Denorfia is the son-in-law of former Mariners pitcher Ted Power. Power pitched for Seattle in 1993 (2-2 record with 13 saves).
