Report: Mariners talking to Brewers about Adam Lind

1 Comment

After acquiring left-hander Wade Miley and right-hander Jonathan Aro from the Red Sox today in exchange for right-hander Carson Smith and left-hander Roenis Elias, Mariners general manager Jerry Dipoto continues to stay busy.

According to FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal, the Mariners are in talks with the Brewers about a trade for Adam Lind. Seattle has an obvious need for a first baseman and Milwaukee is in rebuild-mode, so it’s a potential match on paper, but it’s unclear if Dipoto has the prospects to get a deal done.

Lind, 32, is coming off a solid season where he batted .277/.360/.460 with 20 home runs and 87 RBI over 149 games. He’s owed $8 million in 2016 before becoming a free agent, so he’s an attractive target for first base/DH-needy clubs.
