Mariners Trade for Cardinals Pitcher Mike Leake

Blue Jays call up Brett Anderson

Mariners GM Jerry Dipoto didn't disclose how much money the Cardinals sent to Seattle in order to offset the $48 million Leake is due over the next three years, but called it "significant". The exact parameters of the exchange aren't fully known, but it's expected that the Cardinals will receive some compensation or a low-level prospect in return.

I know that I will not give up like this. "I came here with a good feeling". I think the serve could be better, but overall, I think it was solid".

A former first-round draft pick, Leake is 7-12 with a 4.21 ERA, 1.32 WHIP, 103 strikeouts and 35 walks in 26 starts (154 innings) this season. James Paxton, Felix Hernandez and Hisashi Iwakuma are all now on the disabled list, not to mention Drew Smyly, who underwent Tommy John surgery and won't return until late next season at the earliest.

"Mike gives us an experienced starter that will help us as we navigate our way towards a playoff spot this season", Dipoto said in a statement. Seattle has had just 16 starts of at least six innings in 43 games since the All-Star break. The St. Louis Cardinals signed him as a free agent in the winter of 2015, giving him a large contract that will pay him $17 million in 2018, $16 million in 2019, and $15 million in 2020. "And anybody that can come in and get a little bit deeper in the ballgame for us but does have experience is really, really big". Leake will immediately join the starting rotation for the Mariners and could be a huge improvement for the staff. They previously traded for Marco Gonzales in July for minor leaguer Tyler O'Neill.
