Mariners Acquire Ryon Healy from Athletics

Mariners acquired INF/DH Ryon Healy from the Athletics for RHP Emilio Pagan and INF Alexander Campos.

"Ryon brings a power bat to our line-up at first base, while providing the flexibility to play third base", said Seattle general manager Jerry Dipoto.

Healy is under team control through the 2022 season. The 25-year-old infielder-designated hitter hit 25 homers in 149 games in 2017, his first full big-league season.

Oakland has parted ways with the young rising start who opened the gates to its current youth movement, sending him to the divisional rival Mariners in exchange for a right-handed pitcher coming off of a successful rookie campaign and a 17-year-old prospect.

Healy burst on to the scene in 2016 with 13 home runs and 37 RBI in 72 games.

Pagan, 26, went 2-3 with a 3.22 ERA with 56 strikeouts and 8 walks in 34 relief appearances over four stints with the Mariners. In his first season of professional ball, he managed to slash.290/.413/.367 with two home runs, 10 doubles and 26 runs batted in across 59 games with Seattle's Dominican Summer League squad.
