Mariners acquire veteran infielder from Red Sox

The Red Sox are trading infielder Luis Urías to the Mariners, reports Alex Speier of the Boston Globe (X link). 

Right-hander Isaiah Campbell is headed to Boston in exchange for Urias’s services per Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times (X link). 

Urias, 26, was a consensus top-30 prospect in baseball entering the 2019 season. However, the infielder struggled in limited playing time with the Padres  

While Urias struggled through the shortened 2020 season with the Brewers, slashing just .239/.308/.294 while appearing in 41 of the club’s 60 games 

Like save and share

Fortunately for Milwaukee, however, Urias broke out during his age-24 season and proceeded to be an above average regular for the Brewers over the next two seasons. 

From 2021-22, Urias posted a .244/.340/.426 slash line across 1042 trips to the plate while playing strong defense at shortstop, second base, and third base to anchor the club’s infield alongside Willy Adames.  

The Brewers entered 2023 figuring to once again lean on Urias as a steady presence on the dirt but the 26-year-old was bit by the injury bug before his season
