A person familiar with the negotiations says the New York Yankees are close to getting slugger Edwin Encarnación in a trade with the Seattle Mariners. ESPN's Jeff Passan first reported the trade Saturday evening on Twitter, and the club officially announced the trade several hours later.
They have now dealt two big bats in Encarnacion and Jay Bruce who they sent to the Phillies recently.
The team turned instead to 29-year-old minor-league journeyman Austin Nola to help fill the void - and Nola got his first hit in his first game with Seattle, . He is batting.241/.356/.531 this season.
According to the New York Post's Joel Sherman, the Mariners will receive right-handed pitcher Juan Then.
