Dee Gordon, the Marlins’ speedy leadoff batter who paced the Majors with 60 stolen bases this year, on Thursday was dealt to the Mariners for Minor League right-handers Nick Neidert and Robert Dugger and infielder Christopher Torres. The Marlins also included international bonus pool money, which MLB.com confirmed to be $1 million, in the trade.
The Marlins made a major trade on Thursday, but it didn’t involve Giancarlo Stanton. With the industry waiting to see if and when the National League MVP will be dealt, Miami sent two-time All-Star Dee Gordon to the Mariners for three prospects.

Even though the Nationals do not seem poised for the biggest headline-grabbing move at the Winter Meetings, which run Monday through Thursday in Lake Buena Vista, Fla., they would like to begin kicking this quiet offseason into gear.
Alex Anthopoulos has maintained a patient and thorough approach as he has spent the past few weeks devouring information and evaluating the organization he inherited when he was named Braves general manager and executive vice president on Nov. 13.
The first five weeks of the Hot Stove season may have come and gone quietly for the Mets, but that is about to change. A team in need of multiple significant pieces is bound to spring into action soon, with the baseball industry’s annual Winter Meetings providing the proper atmosphere next week in Lake Buena […]
Do not be surprised if the Phillies are linked to some of the biggest rumors in baseball at next week’s Winter Meetings.
All eyes will be on the Marlins when they head into the Winter Meetings in Lake Buena Vista, Fla., on Monday, as they are expected to be one of the most active teams on the trade front.
The Braves had a need for a versatile infielder after non-tendering Jace Peterson and Danny Santana last week. They filled the void by signing utility man Christian Colon to a Minor League deal, a source told MLB.com’s Mark Bowman.
