MLB Trade Rumors: Will the Seattle Mariners trade for David Price?


Seattle Mariners fans have to be excited about the move their beloved team made today that involved second baseman Robinson Cano.

With Cano in the bag, this team has turned their attention to other pieces that could be added to their championship puzzle. They’ve expressed some interest in Shin-Soo Choo, Carlos Beltran, Nelson Cruz and Mike Napoli.

Now what if they were to trade for Tampa Bay Rays left David Price? That would actually be a huge move that they could pull off, but what would they give up to get him?

According to Ryan Divish on Twitter, a package deal for Price would more than likely have to involve Taijuan Walker. Walker is a 21 year old prospect who happens to be one of the best in their system.

Since the Tampa Bay Rays lost Kelly Johnson, they could be looking at Nick Franklin as a possible trade piece. Franklin made his Major League debut with the Mariners this past year and had himself a decent season.

No sense in keeping a guy who won’t start at second for this organization unless they plan on using him at another position. If not, try to get what you can for him.

If the Mariners are able to pull this off, this starting rotation that features Felix Hernandez, would be insane.

    Walker and Franklin for price. Seattle would have one of the best starting pitching rotations in the league. keep in mind that we have 1 guy sign through 2015 we can afford him. We may have cano soon. We need to trade for Kemp, sign Beltran, Choo and Moralas. We have one the best GMs for building our farm team back up.
