SEATTLE -- The Seattle Mariners have added a pair of slugging first baseman-outfielders to go along with Robinson Cano, reaching agreement on a one-year deal with Corey Hart and acquiring Logan Morrison in a trade with the Miami Marlins.
Hart confirmed he had agreed to the deal in a text message to The Associated Press. Completion of the deal is pending a physical. Hart missed last season following surgery on his right knee.
Morrison was acquired for relief pitcher Carter Capps, according to a person with knowledge of the deal. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the trade was pending both teams reviewing medical records.
