The MLB non-waiver trade deadline is approaching, and with the Mariners firmly in the Wild Card chase, they appear to be buyers.

The club bolstered their bullpen Thursday, acquiring right-handed reliever David Phelps from the Marlins for four prospects. Despite a lacking farm system, they don’t figure to be done. After all, Jerry Dipoto is at the helm.
