Thaiss for Seager?

Thaiss is effectively blocked by Pujols/Ohtani for the foreseeable future.  Seager has 3/$57.5 left on his contract.  Would a Thaiss for Seager + $20M trade make sense for both sides?   I know how bad Seager was offensively last season, but he was playing through a broken toe (and his offensive numbers plunged post-injury) and other than last season he's been a pretty consistent .250/.350/.450 kind of player, nothing spectacular but very durable with good defense.  And a lefty bat to boot, something that the Angels need.  Better than (but not much different from) Cozart, who could swing over to 2B.

it's worse than originally thought.

"As the Mariners continue to explore further ways to get younger and shed payroll, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports that the team won’t be attaching Kyle Seager’s contract to Mitch Hanigerin an effort to escape the remaining three years and $56MM on Seager’s seven-year deal (subscription required). First and foremost, the Seattle organization considers Haniger to be among the five best corner outfielders in baseball, Rosenthal notes. Beyond that, however, Seager’s contract contains a clause converting a $15MM club option for the 2022 season into a player option, should he be traded"
