On Wednesday, the Seattle Mariners traded rich-handed reliever Emilio Pagan and Minor League infielder Alexander Campos in exchange for first baseman Ryon Healy, the former Oregon Duck, who will be entering his second full major league season in 2018.

Last season, Healy appeared in 149 games for Oakland, hitting .271 with 25 home runs and 78 RBIs. During his rookie season in 2016, Healy hit 13 home runs and drove in 37 runs in 72 games, earning All-Rookie team honors from Baseball America.

The Mariners get Healy on a budget, as he’ll make around the league minimum for the next two years before becoming arbitration-eligible. Healy also won't be eligible to be a free agent until 2023.
