    Mariners aren’t looking for a bench/potential DH bat as much as they used to anymore, but this still seems like a pretty good deal for both sides. Dalbec is coming off a really bad year after a promising rookie season. Going into his age 28 season his value shouldn’t be especially high. This really seems like a low risk high reward type deal, where the worst case scenario is they just have a bench bat with a decent amount of pop. Especially given that the Mariners have wanted to find a trade for Flexen since the beginning of the offseason, this is a risk I’m more than willing to take.

    The Red Sox have money, and would be able to sign Flexen to an extension if he performs the way he has in the past couple years, which is about as good as your above average 4 to really strong 5 starter. On top of that, they would be giving another potential spot/opening for Triston Casas (who looks really good) to make the team. Flexen is going into his age 29 season, and I could see him being a solid pitcher for a long time in Boston. The only thing I’d be worried about, is because Flexen is a fly ball pitcher he might not be a good fit for Fenway park, but the Red Sox have already expressed trade interest in him so I guess that doesn’t concern the Red Sox execs very much.
