    The problem with this trade is three-fold.

    1) Munoz is injured.

    2) The Mariners need relief pitching and a hard throwing 21-year-old with a 102 mph fastball is pretty much the objective when building a bullpen.

    3) The Mariners need anything but SPs and OFs, besides Gonzales becoming a solid #2-3, they have a bunch of young talented arms who all touch 97+ mph: Kikuchi, Sheffield, Dunn, Hancock, Gilbert, Kirby, Campbell, Carlson, Phillips, etc.

    So wasting a relief pitcher like Munoz to be able to pay Seager to play for another team would make no sense if the return is another RHSP. For the Braves, they need pitching due to injuries and aren’t going to throw away a high-ceiling starter for a bullpen arm and an expensive aging vet with a poison pill contract which still leaves the Braves on the hook for $22M over 2 years.
