Acquired OF-R Chris Denorfia from San Diego Padres in exchange for CF-S Abraham Almonte and RHP Stephen Kohlscheen [7/31]

Against lefties, the Mariners have started either Stefan Romero or Endy Chavez in left field as of late. They have not been good or even average. Stefan Romero has been more productive than Chavez across the entire triple slash and has only managed a .213/.239/.306 against southpaws this year. Chris Denorfia will thus be a considerable upgrade. While he is only putting up a .253/.311/.326 against lefties in 2014, he did put up .284/.355/.479 in 2013 and .337/.390/.500 in 2012. Is the 34 year old Denorfia declining? Very probably, but even his declined state will be a big improvement for the Mariners against left handed pitching. —Jeff Quinton
