The Mariners' offense has been the talk of the Mariners' season this year. The team added some big-time names this offseason and Jerry Dipoto and Justin Hollander did a great job addressing the top-end as well as the depth that this team lacked. With all of those additions, the offense got off to a terrible start. By mid-May, things looked like they were turning around for a bit. The team strung together series win after series win, and though the pitching was still carrying this team, the offense was doing their job when needed (for the most part).

The offense has definitely been better as of late, but there are still a lot of glaring holes in this lineup. The corner outfielders have been terrible (at least Haniger has come through in the clutch as of late), but they just aren't getting the consistent production they need. Ty France struggled out of the gate but was one of the hottest Mariners hitters as the tide started to change for this offense. Mitch Garver had largely been a huge disappointment at DH but has started to turn things around (slashing .263/.481/.684 with two home runs in the last seven games).

With all of that, the Mariners have been linked to pretty much every bat available this year as a potential suitor. The Mariners will certainly add to their lineup, as ESPN's Jeff Passan says the Mariners are in "go mode". As we talk all about names that the Mariners should look to add, it starts to create a roster crunch. So today, we are going to talk about players that may be expendable in acquiring more proven offense.
