MLB Winter Meetings 2015: Mariners Make Deal for Pitcher Wade Miley

NASHVILLE – The Seattle Mariners got a piece back in their starting rotation on Monday as they made a deal for Boston Red Sox pitcher Wade Miley.

Seattle lost pitcher Hisashi Iwakuma to the Dodgers, and were looking to add a starter to their rotation, and they found a trading partner in Boston.

Miley joined the Red Sox last offseason from Arizona in exchange for three prospects. With the Red Sox in 2015 he went 11-11 with a 4.46 ERA in 32 starts, pitching 194 innings.

The deal to Seattle included minor league pitcher Jonathan Aro, while the Red Sox get right-hander Carson Smith and left-hander Roenis Elias.

Elias is a possible starter that can help the Red Sox, while Smith was 2-5 last season with 13 saves for the Mariners, another piece to what is becoming a good Red Sox pen.
