The Oakland Athletics have traded All-Star first baseman Yonder Alonso to the Seattle Mariners for minor league outfielder Boog Powell.

The teams announced the trade Sunday afternoon.

"Surprised but excited, going to a team that is one game out of the playoffs," Alonso said after the trade, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. "I get to play some meaningful baseball, which will be probably the first time in my career I'll be able to do that. I'm ecstatic."

    Solid trade for DiPoto, Powell is buried beneath about 7 OF's on the organizational depth chart and is probably nothing more than a 4th OF anyway. Alonso fills a nice niche, left handed portion of a first base platoon is an important bat.

    Not a huge deal but better than you expect post July 31.

    I like this move. That said I've accepted that Boog will be 3 WAR the next five years and walk us off at least twice
