Smoak to M's, Lee to Rangers

The New York Post reported that the M's sent [Cliff] Lee and reliever Mark Lowe to Texas for first baseman Justin Smoak and three other minor-leaguers.

I'm a bit shocked that they would trade Smoak to a division rival, where he could come back and bite them for years. I think this is a great move by the Mariners. Does anyone know who the other three minor leaguers are? I think this will put Texas over the top in the division, but it means that they're giving up a big future piece for a pitcher who probably won't resign, especially considering the state of their ownership.
