FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that Joe Saunders' one-year deal with the Mariners is worth $6.5 million.

Saunders could make an additional $1 million with incentives. The deal includes a mutual option for 2014. The 31-year-old southpaw had a 4.07 ERA and 112/39 K/BB ratio over 174 2/3 innings last season between the Diamondbacks and Orioles. He should continue to be a solid back-end starter with Seattle.

Mariners acquired OF Mark Trumbo and LHP Vidal Nuno from the Diamondbacks for C Welington Castillo, RHP Dominic Leone, INF Jack Reinheimer and OF Gabby Guerrero.

The big name moving in this deal is Trumbo, who has 118 homers in 594 games in the major leagues. The 29-year-old is hitting just. 259/.299/.506 this season but brings some thump to a struggling Mariners club. The M's will have control of Trumbo through the 2016 season.

Yasmany Tomas went 3-for-5 with an RBI and two runs scored as the Diamondbacks came back to edge the Braves 9-8 on Wednesday.

Tomas and his teammates found themselves trailing 6-0 by the second inning, but the offense found a way to come all the way back. Tomas played a big part in that, contributing an RBI single in the three-run seventh inning and adding a double and a single in the contest. If he wasn't ready for the majors earlier this season he certainly is now, as the 24-year-old is batting .331/.364/.414 through his first 38 games in the bigs.

Freddie Freeman homered twice and collected four RBI in Wednesday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

The Braves ended up losing the contest, but it was no fault of Freeman's. The first baseman hit a three-run shot off Diamondbacks starter Rubby De La Rosa in the second inning before launching a solo shot in the fourth. He's been one of the Braves' sole sources of offense since the season began, but Freeman is still hitting .299/.362/.525 with 10 homers, 33 RBI and 35 runs scored despite having little help around him in the lineup.

Francisco Liriano fired seven innings of one-run ball Wednesday in the Pirates' 5-2 defeat of the Giants.

Liriano was masterful, limiting the Giants to four hits -- three singles and a double -- while striking out six. The veteran left-hander issued just one walk and now boasts a 3.24 ERA, 1.05 WHIP, and 81 strikeouts in 66 2/3 innings this season. The Pirates swept the three-game series in San Francisco and have earned victories in 11 of their last 13 games. Here come the Buccos.

Yasiel Puig (hamstring) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Rancho Cucamonga on Thursday.

It's actually a restart after Puig suffered a setback in mid-May. He's been running the bases and taking batting practice, so he may just need a few games to be ready to return to the Dodgers. Manager Don Mattingly said he thinks the outfielder could be ready to return sometime next week.
Jun 3 - 6:27 PM

Masahiro Tanaka delivered seven innings of one-run ball as the Yankees finished off a three-game sweep of the Mariners on Wednesday afternoon in Seattle.

It was Tanaka's first outing since April 23 and he looked fantastic, yielding only three hits and walking none while striking out nine. He probably could have gone the distance, but it's easy to understand why manager Joe Girardi gave Tanaka the early hook at 78 pitches. Tanaka will try to keep it all working -- and keep his health intact -- next week at home against the Nationals.

Shin-Soo Choo has been playing with a sprained left pinkie finger.

Choo told reporters he injured the pinkie in the team's first day in Cleveland over a week ago, and Jeff Wilson of the Forth Worth Star-Telegram said the outfielder chose to play through the injury rather than have a pin inserted. He would miss a month if he had the procedure. If the injury happened recently he hasn't shown it, as he hit .295/.356/.533 in May and went 3-for-5 with a homer on Tuesday.
Jun 3 - 6:08 PM

Michael Cuddyer is out of the Mets' starting lineup on Wednesday with stiffness in his neck.

Darrell Ceciliani will start in left field and and bat sixth Wednesday night against the Padres. Cuddyer is day-to-day for now. It doesn't sound like a major issue.

Reds placed OF Marlon Byrd on the 15-day disabled list with a fracture in his right wrist.

Byrd suffered the injury Tuesday when he was struck by a pitch. He's had previous fractures in the same area and the Reds are still trying to figure out how much time he will miss. Brennan Boesch and Skip Schumaker will likely share playing time in left field.
Jun 3 - 5:42 PM

Red Sox acquired OF Alejandro De Aza and cash considerations from the Orioles for RHP Joe Gunkel.

De Aza was designated for assignment by the O's last week after opening the season with a rough .214/.277/.359 batting line in 30 games. He seems doubtful to get much playing time in the crowded Boston outfield. Baltimore was paying him $5 million this season, which helps explain the "cash considerations" part of this swap.

Jordan Lyles needs season-ending surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left big toe.

The procedure -- basically a Tommy John surgery for the toe -- is scheduled for June 10 in Denver. Lyles, 24, finishes the 2015 season with a 2-5 record, 5.14 ERA, 1.49 WHIP, and 30/19 K/BB ratio in 49 innings. Chris Rusin looks like the primary candidate to replace him in the Rockies' starting rotation.
