Cardinals trade Leake to Mariners for minor league shortstop

Cardinals trade Leake to Mariners for minor league shortstop

There could be validity to that, as losing a key veteran arm from the rotation is a problem, but the team will be getting Adam Wainwright back off the disabled list, and Luke Weaver has been strong in the rotation, striking out 10 batters in each of his last two starts.

The Seattle Mariners acquired right-handed pitcher Mike Leake from the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday as they contend for an American League wild-card spot.

Leake was traded to Seattle on Wednesday, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports. He signed a five-year, $80 million deal before the 2016 season.

The Mariners and Cardinals are both now on the periphery of their leagues' Wild Card races. The Mariners acquire an $18 million option for 2021 with a $5 million buyout.

"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.

Leake has been one of the most durable starters in the National League but has not been at his best since the All-Star break.

The right-hander is 7-12 with a 4.21 ERA overall this season. Since 2010 he's made the second-most starts in the NL. Since 2012, he's made at least 30 starts in a season and has a chance to do so in 2017. 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.
