Mariners Trade 3: Andujar as the main piece
In this trade, the Mariners get Miguel Andujar who has played third base and left field. He had a great season in 2018 playing the whole season at third base. Injuries and up and down performance have limited his playing time severely in New York since then. The Mariners also get a left-handed reliever who gives the Mariners another lefty reliever option out of the bullpen.
Miguel Andujar is only going to be 27 next year and had nearly a 3 WAR season in 2018 when he played a full season at third base. He lost his spot in 2019 to Gio Urshela after tearing his labrum and injuries have been plaguing him since. The Mariners would be buying very low on a player with the upside to be a solid contributor.
Joely Rodriguez is a left-handed reliever who had a good season for the Rangers in 2020 and got traded to the Yankees in the Joey Gallo trade. He throws a fastball around 94, a slider in the mid-80s, and a changeup in the high 80s. He has a chase rate in the 97th percentile on Baseball Savant. He could give the Mariners a reliever who could challenge Anthony Misiewicz for the left-handed reliever role in the bullpen in 2022.
The Yankees get an up and down reliever in Wyatt Mills who has some potential after lots of time back and forth between Tacoma and Seattle in 2021. Taylor Trammell gives them someone the Yankees could develop into an outfielder for them who could benefit from the short right-field porch in New York.
