The top players featured on the Mariners 2018 roster were Paxton, Diaz, Cano, and Segura and they're all gone. Despite posting a winning record, the Mariners are going through a rebuild by tearing the team down and starting from scratch. One player that the Mariners still have that could net them a decent return is 3B Kyle Seager. Seager struggled last year to the tune of a .221/.273/.400 slash line but did manage to hit 22 home runs and 76 RBIs along with 36 doubles.

To his name, Seager has one all-star appearance and one Gold Glove award which both came in 2014.

Seager is under contract for another three years and is owed $56 million over the course of that span with a $15 million club option in 2022. Here are possible destinations and the returns the Mariners would get for Seager.

Los Angeles Angels

To LAA: Seager, RP Anthony Swarzak, $7 million in 2019, $5 million in 2020 and 2021

To SEA: P Jesus Castillo, P Luis Pena, and three minor league players

A few days ago, I talked about the possibility of the Angels acquiring 2B Dee Gordon but the Angels could take another path and acquire Seager from the Mariners and keep Cozart and second. Seager would add more pop to the Angels lineup and would most likely bat behind the Angels power hitters in Upton, Trout, and Ohtani.

Seager would head to Los Angeles along with Swarzak for the Angels number 12 prospect Jesus Castillo, number 18 prospect Luis Pena and three minor league players.

This deal would be a nice fit for the Angels as they would get another solid bat to bat behind their heart of the order and Swarzak would give them another option in the bullpen which has always been a weakness for the Halos.

The Angels would also get some of Seager's salary covered each season and would get the most money this season as Swarzak is only under contract for one more year.

The Mariners would get two pitchers in return that can be helpful in the future which would be beneficial as their starting pitchers have always struggled to stay healthy.

Castillo can be a future rotation piece at the back and Pena can be a starter or a reliever and could see time at the major league level as early as 2019.

St.Louis Cardinals

To STL: Seager

To SEA: P Junior Fernandez and P Johan Oviedo

For the past few seasons, the Cardinals have always been looking for upgrades at third base with them even being connected to superstar third baseman Josh Donaldson and Manny Machado. Donaldson signed with the Braves and Machado is still available on the free agent market but he's looking to play shortstop. The Cardinals could land Seager as a consolation prize and would give up their number 14 prospect Junior Fernandez and number 25 prospect Johan Oviedo.

Seager would be the good third baseman the Cardinals have been looking for and Seager would bring them another left-handed bat in the lineup that the Cardinals lack.

Seager would be an upgrade over Gyorko which would make the Cardinals a better team.

The Mariners would get two pitchers out of Seager while not having to cover a single penny of his contract. With a 70 graded fastball, Fernandez could be used as a late-inning weapon out of the Mariners bullpen and Oviedo did solid at the single A level and has lots of time to develop as he isn't projected to reach the big leagues until 2021.

New York Mets

To NYM: Seager and $5.7 million for the next three years

To SEA: P Stephen Nogosek, 2B/SS Luis Carpio, and P Eric Hanhold

The Mets made a big trade with the Mets just days ago when the acquired Diaz and Cano and they could make another trade with the Mariners as well.

The Mariners could look to reunite Seager with his old teammates and give up their number 19 prospect Luis Carpio, number 24 prospect Stephen Nogosek and number 28 prospect Eric Hanhold.

The Mets would improve their team by acquiring Seager as they can shift Frazier to first base to accommodate Seager and have Smith develop more in the minors or use him as a bench bat as he has struggled in every opportunity that was given to him at the major leagues.

The Mariners would be able to get most of Seager's contract off their hands and would net three prospects in return with two of them being pitchers which they desperately need. Carpio isn't projected to reach the major league level until 2020 which gives him lots of time to develop, Nogosek posted an opponent average of .198 in 2018 and Hanhold could play on the major league team as he made his major league debut last season.
