Mariners get speedy Dee Gordon from Marlins in trade

"He's a two-time All-Star and former National League batting champion who is electric on the basepaths, having already won three stolen base titles".

"Dee provides us with a dynamic presence at the top of our lineup", Seattle general manager Jerry Dipoto said in a statement.

But after making $7.5 million in year two of a five-year extension he signed with Miami last January, Gordon will make $10.5 million in 2018, $13 million in 2019, and $13.5 million in 2020. The speedy Gordon hit.308 with 33 RBIs and 60 stolen bases. There is a buyout of $1 million before the previous year of his deal. He promptly tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs in late April, and served an 80-game suspension.

He was an 18th-round pick out of Texas Tech in 2016. He was originally signed as an global free agent in 2014. But, while that aspect is likely to demand most of the attention, there's another part of the trade worth highlighting: the impact the deal could have on the Mariners' pursuit of Japanese two-way phenom and top-ranked free-agent Shohei Ohtani.

As they wait for Giancarlo Stanton to waive his no-trade clause, the new ownership of the Miami Marlins has made their plans to reduce payroll clear.
