(1090 The Fan) — The Mariners have reportedly made a formal offer to the Colorado Rockies for outfielder Drew Stubbs.
According to the Denver Post, Seattle asked about Stubbs earlier this week even though Colorado has said it is not actively looking to deal Stubbs.
The 29-year-old Texas native currently holds a line of .297/.335/.498 for the Rockies. He has tallied 10 home runs and 27 RBI.
Stubbs, s first round selection in the 2006 draft, has shown he can be a threat on the base path. In three of his four seasons with the Cincinnati Reds, Stubbs stole 30 or more bases.
The outfielder is earning $4.1 million through arbitration this year and should be in line for a raise next season.
