Breaking: Seattle Mariners Confirm Big Boost With the Addition of the 27-year-old Star Player to Trigger Scott Servais’ Roster…

Victor Robles, an outfielder and former top prospect of the Washington Nationals, is joining the Seattle Mariners, a source told FOX 13 Seattle on Monday.

The Nationals designated 27-year-old Robles for assignment last week; on Saturday, the organization released him unconditionally. In 14 games this season with Washington, Robles was hitting just.120 with three runs scored and four stolen bases.

Jonatan Clase, an outfielder, was optioned by the Mariners to Triple-A Tacoma on Monday in order to make room on the roster for Robles. Clase, 22, made his Major League Baseball debut with the Seattle Mariners on April 15 and has since played in 15 games this season. With three runs scored, a double, three RBI, and two stolen bases, his batting average is.176.

In his rookie season of 2019, Robles started at center field for the Nationals, who went on to win the World Series. In 155 games for Washington, Robles hit.255 with 33 doubles, three triples, 17 home runs, 28 steals, and a.745 OPS. According to Fielding Bible, he also led all center fielders in defensive runs saved with 22.

But in the three years that followed, Robles was never able to repeat the brilliance of his rookie campaign, and last year, a back injury kept him out of all but 36 games.

The Mariners now have a defensive and base-running option off the bench in Robles, allowing Clase to return to Triple-A and receive regular playing time.
