Subtractions - Riley O'Brien, Isaiah Campbell, Eugenio Suarez, Jarred Kelenic, Marco Gonzales, Teoscar Hernandez, Evan White
It has certainly been a disappointing offseason for Mariners fans. With many of us expecting ownership to start shelling out some cash, we were met with salary dumps and a tighter budget due to RSN issues. The Mariners have lost three players that hit in the middle of the lineup in Suarez, Kelenic, Teoscar, and a solid bullpen option in Isaiah Campbell.
The Mariners first move of the offseason was the addition of Luis Urias and it looked solid on the surface but was met with the Mariners dumping Geno's contract. In that trade the Mariners added a decent backup catcher in Seby Zavala and a high upside reliever in Carlos Vargas. The Mariners finally made their big move in getting Mitch Garver to be the everyday DH.
This team still has a lot of holes and I am not confident that they are a better team that last years squad. With one or two more moves (mainly in the corner outfield spots) they could really start to put themselves in the conversation for the best team in the division.
