Law: Indians trade risk for expense in Santana-Encarnacion swap

Following the Seattle Mariners' Jean Segura-led trade with the Phillies, it always seemed like Carlos Santana would be subsequently flipped, which the Mariners finally did on Thursday as part of a three-team deal. As a result, at the moment they have Edwin Encarnacion, Santana is reunited with the Cleveland Indians, and the Tampa Bay Rays swapped Jake Bauers to Cleveland for Yandy Diaz, with a probable Encarnacion trade still to come.
