It was an extraordinarily busy winter for the five clubs in the American League West. Each organization made significant moves, with all but the Los Angeles Angels spending big dollars to improve their respective rosters. Let’s take a look at the details.
Fernando Rodney gave up a run and two hits in his debut with the Seattle but Jesus Montero had two singles and an RBI to help the Mariners beat a Chicago White Sox split-squad 7-4 Thursday.
The Seattle Mariners will shut down top pitching prospect Taijuan Walker for at least one week after exams revealed inflammation in the bursa of his right shoulder.
The Seattle Mariners have a stable of young arms garnering a lot of attention around baseball. That all starts with Taijuan Walker and continues with southpaw James Paxton. Both made their big-league debuts in 2013 […]
Jason A. Churchill kind of likes a projected lineup that includes Kendrys Morales, who remains a free agent and is being pursued by multiple clubs.
Taijuan Walker continues to improve his late-moving fastball which consistently checks in at 94-95 mph.
We’re boring down on February, the free agent market for hitters has nearly dried up entirely and the Mariners continue to be tied to Nelson Cruz. Why? Maybe because the reporters are just connecting dots; the Mariners need offense and Cruz and Morales are two of the very best options available that could make some kind of difference. Maybe the Mariners have legitimate interest in Cruz. Why? I haven’t the foggiest.
Jack Zduriencik does not see the Seattle Mariners making another splash signing before the start of spring training after an offseason of big moves highlighted by the signing of second baseman Robinson Cano.
The best part about the idea of adding Colon for a team like Seattle? His contract, even if he were to get Hudson money, doesn’t impact the attempts to add two more hitters, nor does it prevent the club from making a play for Garza, Jimenez or Santana, too.
One of the few names being suggested that the Seattle Mariners have yet to be linked to by any of a variety of sources is Toronto Blue Jays right fielder Jose Bautista.
