Encarnacion to Mariners, Santana to Indians in 3-team trade

The Mariners acquired the first baseman as part of the trade for shortstop Jean Segura on December 3.

The Mariners also received a compensatory Round B draft pick from Cleveland in the trade.

The Rays got infielder Yandy Diaz and minor and minor league right-hander Cole Slusser from Cleveland.

The Mariners said that Dipoto was undergoing tests, but was feeling fine and only brought to the hospital out of "an abundance of caution", according to the The News Tribune. The Mariners also got 23-year-old shortstop J.P. Crawford as part of the trade. Encarnacion is owed $20 million in 2019 and a $5 million buyout (or $20 million) in 2020.
