Seattle Mariners trade Carlos Peguero to Kansas City Royals

The Seattle Mariners traded Carlos Peguero to the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday morning (Jan. 29). This Mariners trade isn't that surprising, as the team had been looking to part ways with the outfielder for a while. According to a report from The Seattle Times, the Royals will send back a player to be named later or cash considerations.

Seattle Signs New Starting Pitcher

This isn't exactly a huge trade for the teams, but there also wasn't a lot of value being placed on the young outfielder. The team had to designate him for assignment back on Jan. 16 when they needed to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for John Buck. With no Triple-A options left, the team would have had to keep him on the 25-man roster for Opening Day and he just wasn't in the plans any longer.

During his time with the Mariners, Peguero posted a .195 batting average in 65 games. He had nine home runs and 27 RBIs during that time, but he also had 84 strikeouts in just 205 at-bats. Peguero was always seen as a player with a lot of power at the plate, but offseason issues between his wife and the wife of Felix Hernandez created a problem that had to be solved.

Carlos Peguero will now head to Spring Training with the Kansas City Royals and he has the opportunity to make the Opening Day roster as a fourth outfielder if he can earn that slot.
