You Know the Offseason Has Officially Arrived When the Rays and Mariners Make a Trade

Chicago Cubs

In the Jerry Dipoto-Matt Silverman era of the Mariners and Rays, you do not need a calendar as the holidays approach. That’s because you’ll always knows it’s roughly early to mid-November when those two teams get together on some kind of trade. And then they’ll do so again a few times before Spring Training, so you’ll know roughly when March arrives.

This year’s installment sees a fine catcher headed off to Tampa Bay, and an outfielder headed back to Seattle (where he literally spent 77 minutes as a member during a previous flurry of trades between these teams back in January):

Useful, interesting players in this one. Nothing that’ll knock your socks off, but hey, it’s the offseason! Trades are here!
