Mariners Close To Deal For “Young Impact Hitter”

6:36pm: The trade could involve Michael Pineda and Yankees prospect Jesus Montero, as Larry Stone of the Seattle Times has heard "rumblings in that direction" (Twitter link).

6:06pm: The Mariners have moved closer to a trade that would net them a "young impact hitter," reports ESPN's Jerry Crasnick.  A source calls the trade "significant" and says Brandon League is not part of the deal (both links via Twitter).

I really hope that Yuniesky Betancourt is involved, somehow.

I bet it’s Felix Hernandez for Daniel Murphy. Your turn.

Perhaps you missed the word “impact”…

I’m sorry if I thought in 40 games a 8 HR/32 RBI/.274 AVG line wasn’t an impact player (his numbers with Detroit). Also let’s not forget the 5 HRs he hit in the ALDS/ALCS…

Jesus Montero? For a second I was thinking Travis Snider is being sent back home, but the description is probably way too generous to be him.
