Quebec baseball player Abraham Toro learned that he was being traded from the Seattle Mariners to the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday, the same way as everyone else, on the web.&nbsp ;

His agent, Matt Colleran, however, joined him quickly to inform him that nothing was official, before confirming the news to him a few minutes later. He was acquired along with outfielder Jesse Winker, while the Mariners got second baseman Kolten Wong in return.

“I'm happy. It wasn't too surprising, honestly, revealed Toro, who was met by journalist Benoit Rioux of the “Journal de Montréal” at his training ground on Saturday. I kinda knew what the possibilities were for me.”

In his first full season in Seattle, Toro fell short on a personal basis, playing just 109 games while maintaining a .185 batting average. He also hit 10 long balls and drove in 35 runs. He hasn't played in a single of the Mariners' five postseason games.

“Sometimes a change of air can help,” Toro added. I haven't been told about my role with the Brewers yet, but I know what I have to do.”

So, at only 25, Toro will already be there. to his third team in major league baseball, he who had also moved from the Houston Astros to the Mariners, in July 2021.
