Bruce trade final
June 2, 2019
The trade we reported on yesterday involving outfielder/first-baseman Jay Bruce was completed today, with Bruce headed to join the Philadelphia Phillies. To take Bruce's roster spot, outfielder Braden Bishop was recalled form Triple-A Tacoma.
Philadelphia receives Bruce and about $18 million (most of what Bruce is owed through the remainder of his contract); the Mariners receive 23-year-old minor-league infielder Jake Scheiner. Scheiner had been playing in the Phillies' Class-A affiliate at Clearwater in the Florida State League, where he hit .256/.326/.353 this season.
