Red Sox Trade Left-Handed Pitcher Roenis Elias To Mariners For PTBNL/Cash

According to NESN sideline reporter Guerin Austin, the Red Sox have traded LHP Roenis Elias to the Seattle Mariners for a player to be named later or cash consideration. The 29-year-old Cuban was originally signed by Seattle as a free-agent back in 2011, but was traded to the Red Sox in 2015—along with Carson Smith—in exchange for Wade Miley and Jonathan Aro. Elias saw very limited action in his two seasons with the Red Sox—posting a gaudy 12.28 ERA over 8.0 total innings of work. In his earlier two-year stint with the Mariners, Elias started 49 games and logged a 15-20 record with a 3.97 ERA.
