2/06/24 Mariners acquire Gregory Santos from White Sox for pair of prospects and draft pick. After a recent trade sent valued leverage reliever Justin Topa to the Twins, the Mariners filled Topa's spot in their bullpen by acquiring a reliever from Minnesota's American League Central rivals. On Saturday, Seattle sent a pair of prospects — right-handed reliever Prelander Berroa and outfielder Zach DeLoach — and the No. 69 pick (a competitive balance B pick) in the 2024 draft to the Chicago White Sox in exchange for right-handed reliever Gregory Santos. "Gregory is coming off of a season in which he established himself as one of the most exciting young relievers in MLB," Mariners president of baseball operations Jerry Dipoto said in a statement.

1/29/24 Mariners Land Jorge Polanco in Trade With Twins.

Polanco has been with the Twins his entire career, first called up to the majors in 2014. Knee and hamstring injuries kept Polanco bouncing on and off the injured list through the early part of the 2023 season, but he would ultimately wind up playing 80 games, hitting 14 home runs and 48 RBIs over that span.

9/27/23 Dusty Baker tired of Astros getting hit? His team hits Mariners more. In the second game of the Seattle Mariners' all-important series against the Houston Astros on Tuesday night, a pair of Astros had to wear some pitches from M's relievers. First, Justin Topa's initial pitch of the night was off the mark, and his sinker found the knee of Houston's Yanier Díaz to open the seventh inning. A couple innings later, Mariners fireballer Andrés Muñoz uncorked a 99 mph fastball on his own first pitch in the game, which hit Astros outfielder Chas McCormick square in the lower back.

3/27/23 Drayer: A look at Mariners roster essentially set for opening day. With the Mariners optioning relief pitcher Justin Topa to Triple-A Tacoma and re-assigning infielder Mason McCoy to minor league camp Monday, the spring roster now stands at 28. Heading into camp, there was the possibility there could be a bit of a surprise with the bullpen – perhaps the Mariners would go with a lefty or someone who flashed something different.

9/01/21 Daniel Vogelbach, Justin Topa and Luke Maile are your Brewers September call-ups. September call-ups aren’t as fun as they used to be, now that rosters are limited to 28 players instead of 40. You’re more likely to see veterans who have already been in the majors get the call this time of year now, as opposed to those initial cups of coffee for prospects or career minor leaguers getting their big break. That’s the case for the Brewers this year, as they try to build up their depth while a playoff spot seems extremely likely with a month to go.
