According to Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com, the Mariners are close to a trade for a "young impact hitter."
No word on which team they are talking to, but Crasnick was told that it is a "significant trade" and that closer Brandon League is not part of the return package. The Mariners finished dead last in the majors last season with 556 runs scored and haven't made any major additions to their offense this winter.
montero is traded for pineda
trade involves more players than that tho. @StoneLarry suggested it first
6:51pm: The deal is Pineda and Jose Campos for Montero and Hector Noesi, a source tells MLB.com's Greg Johns (Twitter link).
word on twitter is that it could be a deal involving Michael Pineda to the Yankees for Jesus Montero.
most know the offensive potential of Jesus Montero.

does going to Seattle effect his offensive potential?
Michael Pineda minors.

Pineda overall in 2011..
9-10/ 3.74 ERA/ 1.10 WHIP.
home- 2.92 ERA/ 1.01 WHIP
away- 4.40 ERA/ 1.17 WHIP
does his home/away splits effect anything?
thoughts on this trade?
