MLB Rumors: Mariners Trying To Add SP

After Wednesday’s news of Hisashi Iwakuma‘s finger injury, Thursday brought news of Franklin Gutierrez deciding to sit out 2014 and Taijuan Walker‘s sore shoulder.

With that, the reports came in that the Mariners have put off their talks with Nelson Cruz and have begun to intensify their search for a starting pitcher.

I personally am still holding on to the hope that the team pursues a trade for Cole Hamels. The Phillies had been interested in shopping him earlier this offseason and now that they have signed A.J. Burnett, maybe they would listen to offers again.

More than likely though, the Mariners will panic and overpay for Ervin Santana, or worse, Ubaldo Jimenez.

Stay tuned sports fans, it’s gonna be a busy weekend.
