Mariners And Giants Strike A Deal

Two weeks ago, the Seattle Mariners traded Mike Ford to the San Francisco Giants. Now, Ford is heading right back to Seattle in another trade.

Ford was recently designated for assignment by the Giants, so a move of some kind was expected. However, it is a little surprising to see Ford return to the Mariners so quickly after being moved there. 

Alas, Ford will now be aiming to receive a call-up from the Mariners this time around. In 102 career games between the Yankees and Giants, Ford has 17 home runs, 43 RBIs, and a .199 batting average. It will be intriguing to see if he will have the chance to build on these career totals as a member of the Mariners from here.
