MLB Rumors: Seattle Mariners, Chicago White Sox talking Dayan Viciedo trade


When Robinson Cano speaks, the Seattle Mariners front office listens.

The high-priced free agent signing recently suggested that the Seattle lineup could use an influx of right-handed power and it appears the Mariners have been hitting the market hard looking for such a commidity.

One player they’ve come across is Dayan Vicideo and according to CBSChicago.com, the two sides have engaged in trade talks for the outfielder.

Although the White Sox are not shopping outfielder Dayan Viciedo, they are listening to other clubs about there interest in the Cuban power hitter. Several major league sources confirmed that the Sox and Mariners have had discussions on a deal that could center around Viciedo.

It’s worth noting that the Sox aren’t actively shopping Vicideo, so it would likely take a relatively hefty offer from the Mariners to pluck him away.

Still just 25, Vicidedo has struggled with consistency and health, but possesses immense power when on the field.

Regardless, it appears the Mariners are looking for some right handed pop at the advice of their new second baseman.
