Dylan Moore could be replaced by a top Mariners prospect this year

This one might be the most realistic option to be fighting for his career to remain in Seattle beyond this year. Dylan Moore continuously flashes signs of being a power speed guy with some versatility. Moore has proven to be a valuable super utility player, especially against left-handed pitching.

We saw the potential of what Dylan Moore could be in the COVID shortened year, when he slashed .255/.358/.496 with a 140 wRC+, and a 1.5 fWAR season. This bought him a lot of time with the Mariners.

Moore has a role on this team, though it isn't an everyday role that should be guaranteed. Moore can certainly steal some bases, and right now, is one of the few guys who can actually play shortstop behind JP Crawford. Like everyone on this list, he is only under control through 2025 (for $3.57M). With Cole Young nearing his major league debut, seemingly pushing Jorge Polanco to third base when that time comes, Moore could be in a battle with Josh Rojas and/or Luis Urias for the bench super-utility role.

Moore could see a lot of time early with Urias dealing with an injury, but if he doesn't cut back on the strikeouts or show that he can get back to the 2020, or even the 2022, Dylan Moore, he may find himself headed out of town.
