As the Seattle Mariners shake off the disappointment of not landing Shohei Ohtani, they will turn their attention to other starters in the market. While the focus will be on Alex Cobb and Yu Darvish, there are other names to consider.
We have discussed a few of these names in the past. They include the likes of Jaime Garcia and Jake Odorizzi. Today we discuss some of the names that most people will ignore or not have considered.
While these names will not cause anybody to rise from their chairs, they will none the less help the 2018 Seattle Mariners. With a rotation of 3 established starters; James Paxton, Felix Hernandez, and Mike Leake, and a plethora of #5 options, the Mariners need to add at least 1 veteran to stabilize the rotation.
Seattle has stiff competition for most of these arms. But the Mariners have no choice. They must be aggressive in this endeavor. Their livelihood in the 2018 playoff race depends on it.
With all this in mind, let us now discuss the names that we may have all overlooked. And we will begin our list by looking at a couple of arms from a rebuilding A.L. Central team.
