The Seattle Mariners traded former AL Rookie of the Year Kyle Lewis to the Arizona Diamondbacks on Thursday in exchange for outfielder/catcher Cooper Hummel.

Hummel returns to the Pacific Northwest after starring in high school at Lakedrige H.S. in Lake Oswego and playing three seasons of college baseball at University of Portland.

Hummel hit three home runs in his debut season in 2022 with the Diamondbacks, and finished the year playing 66 games and hitting .176/.274/.307.  Hummel is a switch-hitter.  He originally entered pro ball as an 18th round draft pick in the 2016 MLB amateur draft by the Milwaukee Brewers.
