With how the Mariners operate, the team usually falls into the same type of spot at a couple of positions. What I mean is, they get players who sort of float through, providing sparks and a lot of short-lived fan interest that sometimes turns into a career long enjoyment for a player, even if they aren't that good.

That might seem like an odd intro for this article, but I think that it's a good descriptor for the majority of players on here. It's easy to like nearly every player on this list, and I would say that all of them are well-liked other than possibly the guy who reportedly fought his way out of town. (Spoiler?) Other than him, a lot of these players spent time as fan favorites while they were with the Mariners.

There aren't any massive names out there of former Mariners who are still looking for work. They don't have any of the big dawg Boras clients still looking for a gig, but they do have a fair amount of former players out there who are still looking to be signed as Spring Training approaches. Not only that, but these players might also still be able to make an impact on their new teams, even if it isn't as a starter.

Some have no reason to be on the list, either for how they played on the Mariners or how they played after leaving. Sorry Jesse Winker, Kolton Wong, AJ Pollock, and Tommy La Stella, but you'll find little love from Mariners fans.

Here are the 5 former Mariners' who should end up signing before the season starts that could still have a positive impact on a team for 2024.
