Mariners Trade for Luis Urias from Red Sox in Exchange for RHP Isaiah Campbell

The Boston Red Sox and Seattle Mariners made a trade to send Luis Urias to Seattle in exchange for RHP Isaiah Campbell on Friday, making it the first major move for Boston’s CBO, Craig Breslow. Urias, who split his time with the Milwaukee Brewers and Boston Red Sox in 2023, hit .194/.337/.299 with three home runs and 18 RBIs in 52 games. He can play both second and third base and will provide Seattle with a reliable defensive player with the potential for increased offense. On the other hand, Campbell is a pitching prospect with a high ceiling, standing at 6-4 and 230 pounds, with a powerful fastball. The Red Sox had multiple options at second base besides Urias and traded him to make room for other players. Campbell made his debut in 2023, appearing in 27 games and accumulating a 4-1 record with a 2.83 ERA in 28.2 innings. With more moves expected in the trade market and teams looking to upgrade, fans should anticipate an exciting few weeks.
