Mariners acquire infielder Carlos Santana from Royals

With Ty France joining Mitch Haniger and Kyle Lewis on the injured list and suspensions looming for Jesse Winker and J.P. Crawford following Sunday’s brawl in Anaheim, the Mariners made a trade Monday morning to add a veteran hitter to their roster.

Seattle acquired first baseman/designated hitter Carlos Santana along with cash considerations from the Royals in exchange for right-handed pitchers Wyatt Mills and Will Fleming.

Santana, 36, has played in 52 games for Kansas City, posting a .216/.349/.341 slash line with 10 doubles, four homers, 21 RBI, 36 walks and 28 strikeouts. The numbers are below his career slash of .244/.361/.433, but the Mariners are in dire need of any sort of help.

A year ago, Santana, played in 158 games for KC, posting a .214/.319/.342 lash line with 15 doubles, 19 homers, 69 RBI, 86 walks and 102 strikeouts.

Mills, 27, appeared in eight games for the Mariners early in the 2022 season, posting a 4.15 ERA (4 ER, 8.2 IP). In six appearances with Triple-A Tacoma this season, he is 1-0 with a 1.83 ERA (4 ER, 19.2 IP).

Fleming, 23, has made 14 starts with Low-A Modesto, posting a 6-6 record with a 4.92 ERA. He was the Mariners’ 11th round selection in the 2021 MLB draft out of Wake Forest University.
