The Seattle Mariners acquired two-time All-Star Dee Gordon from the Miami Marlins on Thursday for three minor league players.

After a bad 2016 season, Gordon bounced back past year.

Rosenthal also reports that RHP Nick Neidert is heading to the Marlins.

For the Marlins, the trade represents a chance to add three intriguing prospects to a farm system that is widely considered among the bottom-five in baseball, as well as a chance to rid themselves of the $38 million that was left on Gordon's over the next three years. The speedy Gordon hit.308 with 33 RBIs and 60 stolen bases. His contract also includes a $14 million vesting option and a $1 million buyout.

As they wait for Giancarlo Stanton to waive his no-trade clause, the new ownership of the Miami Marlins has made their plans to reduce payroll clear. He was Seattle's second round pick in 2015.

In the latest report, Byers says that Walker is still on the run, although he'd planned to turn herself in on Tuesday. Alfonso Walker , also known as "Doc", has been charged with burglary, theft by taking, and theft by deception.

That would mean Robinson Cano is staying at second base and Jean Segura stays at short.

Though Gordon has previously played the infield, the Mariners have said he will move to the outfield, likely centerfield.

After fielding one of the worst outfield defenses in the majors two seasons ago, the Mariners acquired Jarrod Dyson and Mitch Haniger last offseason and, as a result, finished with the fifth-best outfield defense according to defensive runs saved (21).

After acquiring infielder Ryon Healy in a trade with the Oakland Athletics last month, Mariners general manager Jerry Dipoto continues to make moves while in pursuit of Shohei Ohtani at the same time.

Gordon, 29, is a gold-glove infielder known for his speed.
