Four players involved in Rays – Mariners trade.
On Sunday afternoon, the Tampa Bay Rays and Seattle Mariners announced a trade.
The Rays send right-handed pitcher Ryan Garton and minor-league catcher Mike Marjama to Seattle in exchange for a pair of minor-leaguers. Left-handed pitcher Anthony Misiewicz and Class-A infielder Luis Rengifo.
Per MLB.com, Rengifo is the No.27 ranked prospect in the Mariners’ farm system. In 102 games for Class-A Clinton, he posted a .250/.318/.413 slash line with 11 home runs, 44 RBI, and 24 doubles.
The Mariners signed him as an International Free Agent in 2013. Rengifo will report to Class-A Bowling Green.
Misiewicz is a 22-year-old drafted in the 18th round of the 2015 draft. The Michigan State University product has 18 wins and a 4.40 ERA over three minor league seasons. The Rays are sending him to Double-A where he will join the Montgomery Biscuits.
The only player in this trade with any major-league experience, Garton becomes the sixth player with big-league credentials that the Mariners have acquired from Tampa Bay. Garton has been in the bigs seven time over the last two seasons. In 44 relief appearances he’s allowed 29 earned runs over 49.2 innings pitched.
The oldest player (28 years old) involved in the deal, Mike Marjama has spent the 2017 season at Triple-A Durham.
His nine home runs tie a career-high (2015) and he’s just one shy of tying his career high 52 RBI’s (2015).
Mariners on Speed Dial
Since Jerry Dipoto joined Seattle’s front office on September 28, 2015. The Rays and Mariners have come to terms on seven deals. It’s safe to say that these two clubs are not afraid to trade with each other.
