Seattle Mariners Acquire Luis Urías from Boston Red Sox

Luis Urías is heading out west…

The Seattle Mariners have acquired the 26-year-old Mexican professional baseball infielder from the Boston Red Sox in exchange for right-handed pitcher Isaiah Campbell.

Luis UríasUrías, a utility infielder who can play second and third base and shortstop, appeared in 52 games last season between the Milwaukee Brewers and Boston Red Sox while dealing with injuries.

Urías missed the first two months due to a hamstring injury. He was dealt to the Red Sox at the trade deadline and appeared in 32 games for Boston the rest of the way.

Urías hit just .194 last season, but played in 119 games in 2022 and a career-high 150 games in 2021 with the Brewers. Seattle will be hoping it gets the 2021 version of Urías, who hit .249 with 23 homers and 75 RBIs.

Campbell, 25, made his major league debut last season with the Mariners. Campbell was 4-1 with a 2.83 ERA and 33 strikeouts in 28⅔ innings out of the bullpen. Campbell made his debut on July 7 after spending parts of three seasons in the minors of the Mariners’ organization.
