Player Notes

  • Mariners acquire catcher Seby Zavala from D-backs
    Mariners acquired C Seby Zavala and RHP Carlos Vargas from the Diamondbacks for 3B Eugenio Suárez.

    Advice: Zavala spent most of the last three years backing up Yasmani Grandal with the White Sox, but the Diamondbacks claimed him off waivers in September. He’ll bring a career .210/.275/.347 triple-slash line with him to a third team in Seattle. He’ll most likely be Cal Raleigh’s backup next year. However, it’s possible the team will add competition later. He’s a solid defender and is just one season removed from posting a .729 OPS in 205 plate appearances during the 2022 campaign.

  • Back with Atlanta
    Atlanta re-signed Tromp to a minor-league contract Wednesday.

    Advice: Tromp was non-tendered by Atlanta last week but will return to the organization. The 28-year-old catcher has put up a .640 OPS with five home runs over 102 plate appearances at the major-league level. He'll likely begin 2024 at Triple-A Gwinnett. Wednesday, 8:34 am
