As expected, the Seattle Mariners have been linked to free agent Hanley Ramirez. He’s a player the club has had some level of interest in for a few years, and understandably so, he hits. He’s also right-handed and plays shortstop, so on the surface he sounds like a fantastic fit for any team that doesn’t have a present-and-future stalwart at the position.
The Seattle Mariners’ pursuit of offense and perhaps a few key ancillary pieces is likely to come from three distinct avenues; free agency, of course, in-house progress and trades.
It’s apparent Seattle will be trying to land a power-hitting outfielder this offseason — and as the Winter Meetings get closer, we’re hearing all kinds of reports, speculations and rumors about who might be wearing a Mariners uniform in 2014.
