Designated hitter Carlos Quentin is reportedly gearing up to retire.
In this week’s episode of The OFP Report, Jason A. Churchill, Alex Carson and Steve Silver discuss the Seattle Mariners’ rotation with Roenis Elias replacing Hisashi Iwakuma, the signing of Carlos Quentin, if and when Jesus Montero could get time in the big leagues, plus Man In The Box, Player of The Week and The T-Bag Segment, taking your questions.
The Seattle Mariners have signed the injury-prone slugger to a minor league deal with hopes that he can contribute as a designated hitter at the Major League level this season.
Despite being just eight games over .500 and currently holding the fifth-best record in the American League, last night’s loss clearly shows Seattle still needs at least one other bat in the lineup.
Jedd Gyorko is there to provide a solid bat in the lineup, and he could very well emerge as one of the league’s best offensive second baseman.
