The Seattle Mariners acquired minor league infielder Jake Slaughter from the Chicago Cubs on Tuesday for right-hander Tyson Miller.

Slaughter, 27, is batting .297 with five homers, 17 RBIs and 10 stolen bases in 32 games this season at Triple-A Iowa, where he has started games at first, second and third base.

Drafted by Chicago in the 18th round in 2018 out of LSU, he has yet to make his major league debut. He is a career .264 hitter with 58 homers and 260 RBIs in 459 games in the minors.

Miller, 28, was designated for assignment by Seattle on May 10. The reliever appeared in nine games and posted a 3.09 ERA with no decisions.

Miller broke into the majors with the Cubs in 2020. He is 2-2 with a 5.91 ERA in 25 career games (three starts) with the Cubs, Mariners, Texas Rangers, Milwaukee Brewers, Los Angeles Dodgers and New York Mets.
