Tracking Growth: Following Our Offensive Core Part 1

It’s no secret that the Mariners roster has been built upon a extremely young core.

This core is the foundation of the Mariners future, and while the season may not be cause for excitement, watching our young core grow is plenty of reason to tune in this season. Lets check in with our future stars to see were they stand thus far into the season (Carp and Wells have been omitted due to a lack of ABs).
