Yonder Alonso traded to Mariners in intradivision swap
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."
