On Friday, we dropped the first half of our 10 under the radar trade targets for the Seattle Mariners consideration this off-season. Today, we finish the list with the top 5.
If you missed the first part, you can catch up by clicking here. But even if you did read part one, let’s remind ourselves of what we are doing here. The players mentioned on this list are ones who may actually be dealt this winter. Sorry Mariners fans, but no Blake Snell this winter.
And remember, we aren’t trying to re-invent the wheel here. There is a good chance you’ve heard some of these names mentioned as potential targets somewhere. We aren’t trying to come up with the flashiest names we can. We are looking for real possibilities. So, don’t expect any Kris Bryant or Fransisco Lindor talk here.
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.
The off-season is almost upon us, so let’s have some fun and speculate on some potential Dipoto targets this winter. With all that in mind, let’s get started with the top 5 under the radar trade targets.
