The Los Angeles Angels got the pitching depth they wanted. The Seattle Mariners got the power-bat they so desperately needed.
The Los Angeles Angels traded power hitter Kendrys Morales to the Seattle Mariners for left-hander Jason Vargas on Wednesday, filling needs for both teams.
Josh Hamilton hit his 32nd homer and drove in three runs, Yu Darvish struck out eight and the Texas Rangers beat the Detroit Tigers 8-3 Sunday.
Eric Wedge decided to stick with the roles that are already being established in Seattle's bullpen.
Erik Bedard, surprisingly, and Josh Wilson are coming back to Seattle. Jose Lopez is on his way to Colorado. And Ryan Rowland-Smith is a free agent.
"I'm back home in California now," Vargas said. "It's perfect."
"I wasn't worried about making some type of comeback. I've gone out there enough and proved I can pitch," Vargas said. "I don't think I have to worry about my previous outing."
