A's trade Healy to Mariners for Pagan

The Oakland Athletics have traded power-hitting Ryon Healy to the Seattle Mariners for right-handed reliever Emilio Pagan and minor league shortstop Alexander Campos. Healy made his big league debut in 2016 with the A's.

You won't believe this: the Mariners have made a trade. The A's sent 1B/3B/DH Ryon Healy to the Mariners for reliever Emilio Pagan and 17-year-old minor league infielder Alexander Campos. Healy is a low-OBP slugger, the kind of player readily available in today's game, but the Mariners needed a first baseman and he provides a low-cost alternative there if the Mariners don't land somebody better in free agency. Pagan had a solid rookie season with a 3.22 ERA and impressive 56-8 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 50 innings. Healy would be one of the worst everyday first basemen in the league and given Jerry DiPoto's trade history he's not even guaranteed to last the offseason on the Mariners roster.

Will Matt Olson deliver bigger things in 2018?

Olson is a real, legitimate prospect, and he could and should be a part of a brighter Oakland future. However, his home run rate will be hard to sustain.

Law's offseason trade overview: Ryon Healy

Healy's performance dipped to .271/.302/.451 in his first full major league season, which could limit his trade value. However, he would be a nice bench bat for a team that leans left in its lineup.
