Possible Scenarios for the 2024 Seattle Mariners Roster
Your 2024 Mariners DH is…
John: Ty France – France has proven that he can slot into just about any position where the Mariners have a need, which makes him an incredibly valuable piece to have on a daily basis. He’s a career .272/.341/.432 batter, and will be 30 in 2024. France is a guy the Mariners would love to have as a daily bat and would make for an excellent anchor to the order.
Chris: Kyle Lewis – Moved out of center to alleviate strain on the knee, letting him focus on hitting. Still plays games in the outfield, but this is his main spot as the “old guy”. Lewis will be just 29, but easily the oldest outfielder. With his bat, being focused on hitting could turn him into a force to be reckoned with.
Connor: Ty France – If you can swing it, you’ll always have a spot. France is arguably the most fun hitter to watch on the Mariners, because no matter the pitcher, no matter the count, he always has a good chance of putting the ball in play and making solid contact. His fielding, on the other hand, hasn’t been impressive, so I think his future is mostly at DH.
Jamey: Kyle Lewis – Long-term I think this is the best move for Lewis. While he’s fully capable of handling the outfield, the Mariners don’t want to have him battling injuries for the next decade. This way, the strain on him playing the outfield every day is removed, and Lewis can simply just go out and hit.
