The Mariners need a big bat. This ain’t it, but it ain’t nothing:
#Mariners have acquired Chris Denorfia from Padres.

The Padres have announced that they acquired Stephen Kohlscheen and Abraham Almonte from Mariners in exchange.
Denofia s having a bad year, but the 34-year-old outfielder has been a reliable lefty-masher for several years. He won’t change the game in Seattle, but he will certainly help.
