The Toronto Blue Jays traded Drew Storen to the Seattle Mariners for Joaquin Benoit on Tuesday night.
Seattle will also receive cash to complete the deal.
Both Storen and Benoit entered the season as setup men, but struggled and lost their jobs.
"I like it," John Gibbons said of the deal. "He can fill a late-inning role, he's a veteran guy and he still has a good arm. This time of year, and with some of the struggles we've been having down there, throw a veteran in there that knows what he's doing, knows how to survive, that kind of thing. Hopefully he'll end up doing just what [Jason] Grilli has done."
