The Seattle Mariners acquired outfielder Chris Denorfia from the San Diego Padres for two minor league players on Thursday.
The Mariners sent outfielder Abaraham Almonte and pitcher Stephen Kohlscheen to the Padres.
Denorfia, 34, is batting .242 this year with one home run and 16 RBIs in 89 games. He is a career .275 hitter over his nine years in the majors.
Almonte, who began the season as the Mariners' starting center fielder, is batting .267 with six home runs, 10 doubles, 31 RBIs and seven stolen bases in 72 games since his early May demotion to Triple-A Tacoma.
Kohlscheen is 3-1 with a 2.70 ERA in 38 relief appearances between Double-A Jackson and Tacoma. He also has six saves and has 55 strikeouts in 56 2/3 innings.
