Mariners trade Balentien to Reds for RHP Robert Manuel

The Mariners weren’t done this morning. GM Jack Zduriencik has just announced another trade, dealing outfielder Wladimir Balentien to Cincinnati for right-handed pitcher Robert Manuel.
Manuel, a reliever, was picked last year by MiLB.com as the best reliever in the minors. He appeared in three games for the Reds this year, for a total of 4 1/3 innings, and didn’t allow a run. He was 3-4 with a 2.70 ERA in AAA Louisville.
Obviously, it didn’t work out with Balentien, who was designated ofr assignment on Sunday after hitting just .213 in 155 at-bats.
