Who will be the Seattle Mariners 2024 second baseman? It is no surprise that the Mariners will be looking at the second base position once the 2023 season is over. They haven't had any luck finding a cornerstone at this position since Jerry Dipoto took over as the general manager and traded Robinson Cano. The last 2 seasons they have traded for Adam Frazier and Kolten Wong. Both who underwhelmed from their average career numbers. With Kolten Wong being a free agent at the end of the year, if he even makes it with the Mariners until the end of the season with the way he is playing. Lets explore some options for the Mariners at second base heading into 2024.

In House Option: Jose Cabellero

The first option is to stay in house and reward Jose Cabellero with the job. Cabellero has been a huge surprise for the Mariners in 2023. With a slash line of .242/.354/.333, Cabellero has been very serviceable for the Mariners in 2023. At a 1.6 WAR this season which ranks 5th best for Mariners team this season. But he has struggled in the month of July.
