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".

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.
