1024x512_Trumbo

Seattle Mariners Executive Vice President & General Manager of Baseball Operations Jack Zduriencik announced today the club has acquired infielder/outfielder Mark Trumbo and LHP Vidal Nuño from the Arizona Diamondbacks in exchange for catcher Welington Castillo, right-handed pitcher Dominic Leone and minor leaguers Gabby Guerrero and Jack Reinheimer.

Seattle will make additional roster moves on its 25-man roster when Trumbo and Nuño report to the Mariners.

“Trumbo gives us another proven, middle-of-the-line-up bat,” Zduriencik said. “He brings power and experience to the club. We think his presence will stretch and deepen our lineup with a legitimate Major League hitter. Nuño is a versatile, left-hander who has experience starting and relieving and comes to us at a time when we have experienced injuries.  He’s a tough kid who throws strikes and will be a nice addition overall.”

“It is always tough to give up prospects and players that you like. In this case, our organizational depth at shortstop helped us with the decision on Reinheimer and Guerrero is well thought of, but we all realize, that to get something you have to give something.  We are proud of and appreciate the contributions that all four gave to our organization and wish them the very best with their careers.”

Trumbo, 29, is batting .259 (45×174) with 10 doubles, 3 triples, 9 home runs and 23 RBI in 46 games for the Diamondbacks. He has started 40 games in right field and one at first base this season.

From 2011-2013 with the Angels, he combined to hit 95 home runs, tied for 4th-most in the American League over this stretch (282 RBI were 6th-most). In his last season in the American League in 2013 he hit 30 doubles, 34 home runs and recorded 100 RBI. He has played first base (343 G/320 GS), left field (116 G/114 GS), right field (107 G/89 GS), designated hitter (41 GS) and third base (9 G/8 GS) during his Major League career.

In parts of 6 Major League seasons with Chicago-NL & Seattle, Castillo has appeared in 316 games and combined for a .250 (258×1031) batting average with 29 home runs and 112 RBI.

Leone, 23, was 0-4 with a 6.35 ERA (8 ER, 11.1 IP) in 10 relief appearances with Seattle this season.

Mariners All-Access

root_sports_northwest

This week on Mariners All-Access on ROOT SPORTS Nelson Cruz gets a new appreciation for how far his home run balls travel, Tom Wilhemlsen deconstructs pitch selection, and J.A. Happ has an appreciation for soon-to-be Mariners Hall of Famer Jamie Moyer.

  • Cruz New Appreciation for HRs – While in Baltimore last week we mic’d up Nelson Cruz and took him out to the locations of the deepest home run hit last year at Camden yards. The slugger had never before seen the perspective a fan sees when he hits a towering shot. Seeing how far away it landed from home plate gave Cruza new appreciation for what he does at the plate.
  • Sound Tracks – Highlights and reaction from the best plays from the week – including Cruz’s game-winning homer in Tampa in the Ray tank.
  • Technically Speaking – Tom Wilhelmsen describes all the factors that go into pitch selection.
  • Beimel Effect – There’s no question the return of Joe Beimel helped solidify the bullpen. His teammates react to his impact and his “Wolverine” style facial hair.
  • Cano vs. Pedroia – Two of the best second basemen in the league have opposite approaches to getting the job done. Infield coach Chris Woodward explains what it takes to be that good, and describes the work Cano does on a daily basis to stay sharp.
  • Player they Wanted to Be… – Find out which Big League players the Mariners idolized when they were growing up.
  • Happ on Moyer – J.A. Happ was a teammate of Jamie Moyer’s in Philadelphia. Hear why Happ thinks more kids should strive to be like Moyer, who is about to become the newest member of the Seattle Mariners Hall of Fame.

Here’s when you can catch Mariners All-Access on ROOT SPORTS this week:

  • Sunday noon, 4:30pm, 7:30pm
