We may be just two days away from the MLB off-season from officially getting underway. And if the past is any indication, Mariners GM Jerry Dipoto won’t wait long to make his first moves.

With that in mind, we thought it might be helpful to talk about what type of players the Mariners could trade for. Or better yet, who are some names few people are talking about who could actually be traded.

But before we begin, let’s lay down some ground rules. First, we have to believe that a player stands a reasonable chance of being traded. It would be easy to say, ” the Mariners should trade for Blake Snell this off-season”, but there isn’t any expectation that he gets traded this winter, so why waste our time?

Second, we aren’t trying to re-invent the wheel here. Chances are, all the names on this list have been mentioned as a possible trade target somewhere on the internet and perhaps even on this website.

Third, the term “under the radar” is open for interpretation. For this article, we will be focusing on players who are not currently widely considered to be potential targets for the Mariners. Otherwise, where is the fun in just regurgitating those same names?

Finally, the purpose of this article is not to create specific trade proposals, but rather to just identify a few names we may not be considering. Some ideas may be sprinkled in, but we are focusing on the acquisition of the player, not the cost.

With all that in mind, let’s get started with the 10 under the radar trade targets for the Seattle Mariners.
