    A's trade Ryon Healy to Mariners for two players

    The rumors were indeed true. Ryon Healy was on the trade block.

    And now Healy has been traded...to the Mariners.

    The two teams announced the trade Wednesday evening.

    Oakland will receive right-handed pitcher Emilio Pagan and shortstop Alexander Campos.

    Healy burst on to the scene in 2016 with 13 home runs and 37 RBI in 72 games. This past season, he finished second on the A's with 25 home runs and 78 RBI. But he had become the odd man out in the A's lineup with Matt Olson and Matt Chapman solidifying the corner infield spots.

    The 25-year-old is familiar with the Pacific Northwest as he attended the University of Oregon.

    Pagan, 26, made his major league debut during the 2017 season. In 34 relief appearances with the Mariners, he posted a 3.22 ERA and struck out 56 batters in 50.1 innings. Against the A's, Pagan allowed one run in 5.1 innings over three outings. A native of South Carolina, Pagan was drafted by the Mariners in the 10th round of the 2013 MLB Draft.

    Campos appears to be the prize of the trade, though he's a bit further away from reaching the major leagues. Just 17 years old, Campos signed out of Venezuela in 2016 and made his professional debut this past season. In 59 games for the Mariners' Domincan Summer League team, Campos hit .290/.413/.367 with 10 doubles, two home runs and 26 RBI.

    MLB Pipeline ranked Campos as Seattle's No. 15 prospect.
