Coming into the 2023-24 offseason, fans expected the Mariners to be active. After a disappointing 2023 season, there were undoubtedly some changes that needed to be made. They had a few holes in the lineup (that they just seem to never be able to fill), but nothing was too glaring. 

The amount of moves this offseason and roster turnover may have surprised a lot of fans. After Dipoto came out and stated that they wanted to cut back on the strikeouts we saw a massive overhaul with a new starter at five of the nine offensive positions. It will be interesting to see how this team meshes with so many new faces, though, they definitely added some good clubhouse guys with Mitch Haniger and veterans Mitch Garver and Jorge Polanco. 

With so much turn and burn from Dipoto and Hollander this offseason, there are certainly going to be hits and misses, it’s the name of the game. There are also going to be a lot of mixed emotions as new faces always bring excitement about what could be for this year. The loss of fan favorites and uber-talented former top prospects might be tough for others. Today we take a look at a few players we will be glad are gone and a couple that will be hard to have seen go.
