More Free Agents?
Rest assured Mariners fans, the M’s are not done. There is no way they sat Robinson Cano down and convinced him to sign with the understanding that he was THE one they were signing and then they were done.
The Mariners are looking to add at least one more bat, probably two (one outfielder and one DH). So who’s left?
Chris Coghlan- The recently non-tendered Coghlan was the 2009 NL Rookie of the Year. The Marlins hope to keep him, but non-tendered him in order to negotiate a cheaper deal. He may not be an ideal fit for the M’s but he’s out there and could be a low-risk/high-reward player if he can regain his 2009 form.
Corey Hart- The two-time All-Star would be a cheaper option to signing Cruz or Choo and may end up producing more. He is capable of 30+ homers and 90+RBI per year. He would fit well as either a No. 3 hitter ahead of Cano or in the 5-hole after Cano. Plus, he can play 1B too, giving Justin Smoak days off at first.
