MLB says assume no universal DH

This was big news for the designated hitter market for guys like Nelson Cruz and Marcell Ozuna since now their value will go down as the list of teams interested in them will probably be cut in half. Fellow Sodo Mojo site expert Ryota Nishino broke this down in more detail to how it directly relates to the Mariners.

Reds trade Raisel Iglesias to the Angels

The Reds are cutting payroll and traded one of the best closers in the MLB to the division-rival Angels, so get ready to face Iglesias if the Mariners are facing the Angels. Sodo Mojo contributor Lee Vowell broke this down as well.

Tomoyuki Sugano posted

The excellent Japanese pitcher was made available for teams to contact. While I don’t envision the Mariners going after him, you always have to look out for other AL West teams when it comes to posted players in Japan.

Mariners claim Dugger, lose Hamilton and Lockett

Seattle claimed reliever Robert Dugger off of waivers from the Marlins but put Ian Hamilton and Walker Lockett on waivers and they were both claimed.

Rangers Trade Lance Lynn to White Sox

This was the deal of the Winter Meetings and was probably the transaction that affects the Mariners the most outside of their own transactions. The division rival Rangers, under new GM former Mariner Chris Young, made a smart rebuilding move trading Lance Lynn to the Rangers for one of their top prospects who now ranks 3rd in the Rangers system, Dane Dunning.
