So, I guess the Mariners have no issue with giving up a player *and* paying the pro-rated part of $14 million for Kendrys Morales…
#Mariners announce acquisition of Kendrys Morales for RHP Stephen Pryor.

In 39 games with the Twins, Morales hit .234/.259/.325. The Mariners gave him a qualifying offer this winter, refused to sign him once he declined the offer, and have now traded Stephen Pryor for him because they needed offense. Makes sense.
