The Marlins have officially announced that Dee Gordon is on his way out of Miami and heading to Seattle.

It has been widely reported that the Marlins main objective is to slash payroll; some reports say to $90 Million or even $75 million. This is the first trade towards that objective.

Nick Neidert was the #2 prospect in the Mariners organization according to MLB Pipeline. The twitter reaction to the Marlins acquiring him was not exactly glowing.

Chris Torres had an interesting clash with the Yankees that you may want to read about

You can find full scouting reports on both Neidert and Torres on MLB Pipeline

Dee Gordon said his goodbye:

Ken Rosenthal initially broke the news that Dee Gordon was traded to the Mariners

My initial reaction and the question pressing many out there; where would Dee play? He has only played second base and shortstop as a big leaguer, and the Mariners have two talented middle infielders in Robinson Cano and Jean Segura. Jim Bowden was the first to report that the Mariners are moving Dee to the outfield.

The Marlins also gave up $1M in international slot money, as the Mariners look to land Shohei Ohtani

Here is some of the fan reaction on twitter
