With the Rays still asking the moon for ace David Price, the Mariners have apparently moved on to other options for upgrading their starting rotation.
According to FOX Sports’ Jon Morosi, the Seattle front office has been showing “continued interest” in free agent right-hander Ervin Santana. There was a report in November stating that Santana is seeking a five-year free agent contract worth more than $100 million, but the price has likely dropped since.
Santana, 31, posted a 3.24 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 161/51 K/BB ratio in 211 innings this past season for the Royals, but that’s the outlier for a career that has been considerably up-and-down. Santana had a 5.16 ERA in 2012 with the Angels and his career mark is 4.19. Signing him costs a top draft pick.
