We are only a couple of days away from the start of the Mariners Spring Training for 2014. And while there is still some talk of potential moves the team is yet to make (Nelson Cruz, Ervin Santana?) we can probably pencil several players in for minor league spots – at least to start the season.
Keep in mind that I am only focusing on players who have invites to the big-league camp. This is not a full minor league preview. If I don’t mention a particular player, it’s because they are not on the 40-man roster, nor were they a non-roster invitee to the big camp.
Keeping with Charlie’s explanation in the bullpen piece of how the 25-man roster will more than likely break down, let’s now take a look at some players who would normally make the big club with a solid spring but will probably just miss due to the revamped roster in Seattle.
