Luis Urías Joins Seattle Mariners After Brief Stint with Boston Red Sox
Luis Urías’ journey with the renowned Boston Red Sox has come to an end after just a few months. The talented Mexican infielder will now proudly represent the Seattle Mariners.
Trade Deal: Red Sox and Mariners Swap Players
In an intriguing trade deal, the Red Sox have sent 26-year-old Luis Urías to the Seattle Mariners in exchange for reliever Isaiah Campbell. Campbell, born in Portugal but holding American nationality, will now don the red-legs jersey.
Urías’ Short-Lived Stint with the Red Sox
Luis Urías’ time with the Red Sox was cut short, as he joined the franchise in early August after his stint with the Milwaukee Brewers. The New England management had high hopes for the Mexican player, aiming to strengthen the team’s chances of making it to the postseason as a wild card contender. Unfortunately, their aspirations fell short. Despite batting just .225, Urías showcased an impressive .361 on-base percentage during his time with the Massachusetts-based team. He also contributed two home runs and 13 RBIs in 109 at-bats.
Campbell’s Positive Season
On the other hand, Isaiah Campbell had a successful season, boasting a 4-1 record and a remarkable 2.83 ERA in 28.2 innings. He also secured one save and effectively maintained seven leads for his team.
New Opportunities for Urías and Campbell
As Luis Urías settles into his new role, he is expected to become the primary second baseman for the Seattle Mariners in the upcoming 2024 season. Meanwhile, Isaiah Campbell will have the chance to showcase his skills as a setup player for the Boston Red Sox.
