Mariners And Diamondbacks Complete Trade

The Seattle Mariners continue to make moves.

The Mariners traded outfielder Kyle Lewis to the Arizona Diamondbacks in exchange for Cooper Hummel.

Lewis was named the American League Rookie of the Year in 2020, but he ended up appearing in just 54 games in the majors over the past two seasons. Over that stretch, Lewis slashed .215/.301/.366, with eight home runs, 16 RBIs, two stolen bases and 21 runs scored. However, he always enjoyed success in the minor leagues, so maybe he'll be able to translate that to the majors with more playing time in Arizona.

Cooper Hummel made his major league debut this past season, slashing .176/.274/.307, with three home runs, 17 RBIs, four stolen bases and 20 runs scored over his first 66 games. Hummel has also enjoyed success in the minor leagues and can play catcher and the outfield position. Given how deep the Mariners roster is, the twenty-seven-year-old will likely have to settle into a reserve/depth role with his new team.
