    Nick Franklin

    It looked like the Mariners might give Nick Franklin an extended opportunity to earn playing time in their outfield following Logan Morrison’s hamstring injury, but one day after Franklin started in the outfield for the first time in his professional career he’s headed back to Triple-A.

  14. Robinson Cano wants the Mariners to bring in Kendrys Morales and Ervin Santana

    Mar 2, 2014, 12:25 PM EDT

    Kendrys Morales

    The Mariners’ signing of Robinson Cano to a ten-year, $240 million was supposed to be the kick-off to a wild off-season. When the news died down, the Mariners were reported to have shown interest in trading for Rays ace David Price, and signing free agents Matt Garza and/or Nelson Cruz. GM Jack Zduriencik only ended…

    Feb 23, 2014, 8:45 PM EDT

    Kansas City Royals v Seattle Mariners

    With the off-season additions of Logan Morrison and Corey Hart, the Mariners were seemingly stockpiling first base types. But according to manager Lloyd McClendon, first base is Justin Smoak‘s to lose. Despite hitting .238, Smoak showed improvement last season, setting a career-high in home runs (20), slugging percentage (.412), and on-base percentage (.334). Via Bob…

    Just a couple of days ago it appeared that the Mariners and Nelson Cruz were slated to come to an agreement. Not so fast. Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reports that the talks between the sides are “on hold.” Why, exactly, is unclear. Could be a financial issue, could be just a change of…

  17. A couple of catchers who aren’t catching anymore

    Carlos Santana and Jesus Montero were catchers once upon a time. Not particularly great catchers (in Montero’s case a pretty lousy one). But they could hit. Well, both hit in the minors and Santana has hit everywhere. Montero is something of a dumpster fire at the moment. Either way, neither of them will be catching…

    Bob Nightengale of USA Today reported Thursday that the Mariners are “cautiously optimistic” about signing free agent outfielder Nelson Cruz.

    Logan Morrison AP

    Jon Heyman reports that the Mariners and Logan Morrison have avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $1.75 million contract. Morrison, acquired by the Mariners in a December trade, requested $2.5 million. The M’s countered with $1.1 million. He can get an extra $350K in incentives, however. He has hit .236 with a .708 OPS in 178…

    Detroit Tigers v Atlanta Braves

    There was a flurry of arbitration-related news today as players and teams scurried to reach agreements prior to the noon central deadline earlier. 39 players did not reach an agreement with their respective teams, and as such, they have exchanged salary figures with their clubs. Of note, Braves closer Craig Kimbrel filed for $9 million,…

    Taijuan Walker

    This is amusing considering the rumors about Seattle possibly trading top pitching prospct Taijuan Walker in a deal for David Price. Today the Mariners introduced Corey Hart and Logan Morrison as official signings and Hart was given jersey No. 27, which is the number Walker wore during his debut this year. MLB.com reporter Greg Johns…

    A week in the sun and warmth is over. A week of the hottest hot stove action in recent memory preceded it. It’s pretty easy to say that a great bulk of the work teams needed to do before Opening Day 2014 has been accomplished since we tossed the last of our Thanksgiving leftovers. But…
