Acquired OF-L Boog Powell from Seattle Mariners in exchange for 1B-L Yonder Alonso. [8/6]

John "Boog" Powell, a 6-foot-4 slugger born in 1941, was the Orioles' first baseman throughout the 60s and early 70s, the big bopper and throw scooper for a defensively brilliant infield that featured Brooks Robinson at third base and Mark Belanger at shortstop. Powell was named AL MVP in 1970, beating out Tony Oliva, Harmon Killebrew, and Carl Yastrzemski for the award as the Orioles won 108 games and the World Series. He also finished runner-up for MVP the previous season, losing out to Killebrew, and finished third in the 1966 voting behind Orioles teammates Frank Robinson and Brooks Robinson. Powell made four All-Star teams, smacked 339 home runs among 1,776 hits, and totaled a 134 OPS+ in 17 seasons that matches the career marks of Fred McGriff, Prince Fielder, and Al Kaline.
