Mariners Who Could Possibly Be Traded This Offseason

4 of 5

SP Taijuan Walker/ SP James Paxton

The possibility of trading either Taijuan Walker or James Paxton is now highly unlikely with the grisly news regarding Danny Hultzen‘s possible career altering injury, but not completely out of the question. Jack Z shopped both of these guys around last year before either had made a major league start, and now their values are arguably higher.

Both are essentially ready to be starters in a big league rotation, though they will both undoubtedly experience growing pains in their first full seasons.

Pitching prospects used to be a position of strength for the M’s, and though it’s somewhat diminished now because of Hultzen’s injury, one of the two being moved is not completely out of the question.
