Major League Baseball trade rumors: Cardinals sending Mike Leake to Mariners

Seattle also acquires cash and worldwide slot money while sending 21-year-old middle infield prospect Rayder Ascanio to St. Louis.

At 66-67, the M's are now three games out of the final American League wild card spot after dropping four straight.

St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Mike Leake throws against the Cincinnati Reds during the first inning of a baseball game, Friday, Aug. 4, 2017, in Cincinnati. Since the start of the 2012 season, Leake's 180 starts are tied for the most in the National League with the Washington Natioanls' Gio Gonzalez.

There has been no word on what the Cardinals got in return, but the Mariners will assume the remaining $55 million on Leake's deal.

Leake will provide much-needed help to a starting rotation decimated by injuries in the middle of a push for a playoff spot. The Mariners also acquired $750,000 in worldwide signing bonus allotment as part of the deal.

"His first 10 starts were spectacular". "Like a lot of guys you go through highs and lows through a season and in Mike's case we're going to bet on the big picture".

Maybe this was compensation for the Tyler O'Neill-for-Marco Gonzales trade that took place back in mid-July. He has a mutual option for the 2022 season that includes a $5 million buyout if the team doesn't pick it up.

"The contribution the Cardinals made was both significant and made us feel good about the price point", Dipoto said. "It was a real consideration and a strong factor in what led us to doing this deal". The 21-year-old switch-hitter was batting.217 with 9 home runs and 44 RBI in 111 games with the Mariners' minor league affiliates. He is expected to be assigned to the Palm Beach Cardinals (A) roster.
