Seattle Mariners players we're glad to see gone: Abraham Toro

When we got Abraham Toro, I was excited. He was an exciting young player that had a chance to be a staple on the Mariners. We got him from the Astros, and it felt like a win to get a young player who tons of teams in the league wanted. Supposedly, other teams instantly called the Mariners to see if they could get him. Whether it was at second base, third base, or as a UTIL, he had a high ceiling.

Unfortunately, he also had a low floor.

Toro came out hot, hitting a homer in that first game against the Astros. After that though, it was bad. He hit .183 the last month of 2021, and then hit .185 in 2022. It was bad, and he was essentially a black hole for the Mariners without providing much outside of that first month with the team. The Mariners were able to use him to send to Milwaukee in order to find a hopeful replacement at second base that they have needed for a long time, along with the next entry on our list.
