Mallex Smith only lasted a few hours as a member of the Seattle Mariners, as he was almost immediately shipped out of town in exchange for Drew Smyly. The Mariners are clearly going for it this year after an 86 win campaign in 2016. The Rays on the other hand are working on another rebuild as they look for athleticism out of the young outfielder.

Smyly will likely slot into the fifth spot in the rotation for the Mariners as he is coming  off a year in which he went 7-12 with a 4.88 ERA and 167 strikeouts over 175.1 innings.
