Mariners acquired DH Kendrys Morales from the Angels for RHP Jason Vargas.

Morales wasn't going to get much playing time in Anaheim next season with Albert Pujols entrenched at first base and Mark Trumbo locked in at designated hitter. This trade frees him up to be an everyday player and should be a real boost to his fantasy value. Kendrys slugged 22 home runs in 134 games this summer for the Angels. He's a .292/.346/.558 career hitter at Safeco Field.
