Dee Gordon heading to Mariners in trade with Marlins

The Mariners have acquired Dee Gordon in a trade from the Marlins, according to The Athletic.

Dee Gordon is on the move. With the trade, the Mariners now have $3,557,500 in worldwide bonus pool money, which pushes them ahead of the Rangers ($3,535,000) for the most global bonus pool money in the Ohtani sweepstakes.

The worldwide slot money is $1 million, according to multiple reports. But general manager Jerry Dipoto has not met a trade he didn't like over the last couple offseasons, and having Robinson Cano entrenched at second base was apparently not a factor in swinging a deal for Gordon. "We feel like that gives him a chance to be a separator in center field".

Just three minutes later, Talisca scored the last goal of the match and the Black Eagles left the field with another three points. Leipzig's Stefan Ilsanker was sent off for his second yellow card, then Keita made the breakthrough with three minutes remaining.

Gordon hit.308 with 60 stolen bases in 2017.

Gordon had been rumored to be on the block due to his contract, as he's owed almost $40 million guaranteed through the next three seasons, including a buyout for the 2021 season. He's under contract through 2020, earning $10.5 million this coming season, $13 million in 2019, and $13.5 million in 2020. In addition, the Mariners will hold a $14 million option for the 2021 season.

The Mariners are taking on all of Gordon's salary, according to multiple reports. He promptly tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs in late April, and served an 80-game suspension. That the Mariners were also able to land more money to offer Ohtani has obvious potential ramifications.
