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.

The A's had one of the best groups of under-25 hitters in baseball, but it was an unsuspenseful slog to last place -- they didn't have a winning month until September.
