Jack Wilson Traded To Atlanta Braves For Player To Be Named Later

The Mariners have traded infielder Jack Wilson for a player to be named later.

The Seattle Mariners have traded infielder Jack Wilson to the Atlanta Braves for a player to be named later, according to the team. Wilson was recently placed on the DL by the Mariners with a severely bruised left heel.

The 33-year-old has spent the last two seasons with the Mariners since arriving late in the 2009 season. He played eight full years with the Pittsburgh Pirates prior to his trade to Seattle. Wilson posted 48 hits in 193 at bats last season and currently has 43 hits from 173 at-bats. He has already appeared in more games this season (62) than he did all of last season (61).

The intriguing part of this deal involves the Mariners' mystery player. The team has had a disappointing season thus far (57-77) but has shown flashes of solid play and is willing to inject some new life into this roster. We will find out who the Mariners' newest member soon, but right now all we do know with certainty is that Jack Wilson is headed to Atlanta.
