Mariners Trade Deadline Breakdown: Did they do enough?

Aug 2, 2022, 5:56 PM

The 2022 MLB trade deadline has come and gone, and the Mariners certainly were players on the market. In fact they made the first true blockbuster of the season last Friday night, acquiring Luis Castillo, the top available starting pitcher, from the Cincinnati Reds.

Servais: Good news on France, Julio; reaction to Castillo trade

Deadline day, however, was a quieter affair for the M’s, who made just a pair of smaller deals to add depth to their bench and bullpen before the 3 p.m. deadline.

Now the question is: Did the Mariners do enough?

In the latest edition of Bob’s Baseball Breakdown from Seattle Sports, Bob Stelton answers that and much more.

This week, Stelton addresses:

• The Castillo trade, which cost Seattle three of their top five prospects

• Tuesday’s smaller moves for Curt Casali, Matthew Boyd and Jake Lamb

• This MLB trade deadline period in general, including Juan Soto going to San Diego

• What the state of the Mariners’ banged-up roster says to him

Watch the video at the top of this post, and for more from Stelton, subscribe to the Seattle Sports YouTube channel here or catch him on Wyman and Bob from 2-7 p.m. Monday through Friday on Seattle Sports Station 710 AM or streaming on the Seattle Sports app and SeattleSports.com.
