Whew it has been a busy five minutes for the Mariners. Now having just signed Corey Hart to a one year deal, the Marinesr reportedly are trading relief pitcher Carter Capps to the Miami Marlins for leftfielder/first baseman/DH Logan Morrison.

Here is the tweet:

 

It’ll be interesting to see where the M’s go with this trade. Capps has a seriously down year, and still has a lot of potential as a late-inning reliever.

I frankly do not know much about Logan Morrison, except that he really shouldn’t be playing a lot of outfield. His trade indicates there will surely be more to come. But, at least after the first two quiet days of the Winter Meetings, the Mariners are getting on a roll.

More analysis to come here at Sodo Mojo, and be sure to stalk your Twitter pages for more developments. Heck, I hadn’t finished posted about Hart before this leaked.

Happy day Mariners fans. We will give you the information as it comes, with thorough analysis to follow.

    Not sure I understand this move. Capps is not big loss but this Morrison guy just looks like another Justin Smoak according to the stats (low avg, some power, can’t hit lefties).

      Again, I think it might be to add depth to the roster and allow the M’s to negotiate instead of panic when it comes to free agents and more, big name trades. It opens up guys like Smoak and Montero to be traded… And Morrison could also be re-shipped elsewhere for someone better than Capps
