SF Giants, Seattle Mariners make third trade of May

Giants president of baseball operations Farhan Zaidi and Mariners president of baseball operations Jerry DiPoto have invested lots of time on the cell phone these days.

For the 3rd time in two weeks, the executives agreed to a slight trade as the Giants declared Wednesday they acquired former Mariners infielder Donovan Walton in exchange for pitching prospect Prelander Berroa.

The transaction arrives after the Giants acquired infielders Mike Ford and Kevin Padlo from the Mariners in trades that only expected San Francisco to mail dollars things to consider up north to Seattle.

Walton, a ideal-handed hitting utility infielder, does not have a plate visual appearance with the Mariners this season, but went 18-for-96 above limited big league prospects from 2019-2021. The final decision to purchase Walton was mildly stunning for the Giants taking into consideration that it expense the workforce Berroa, a sound pitching prospect who came to San Francisco in a 2019 trade deadline deal that sent reliever Sam Dyson to the Twins.
