Potential fit #1: Jung Ho Lee

Jungo Ho Lee is a 25-year-old South Korean left-hand hitting outfielder who most recently played for the Kiwoom Heroes of the Korean Baseball Organization. Lee only played 85 games of the 2023 season because of season ending ankle surgery.

In 2022 he had a slash line of .349/.421/.575 with 23 home runs and 113 RBIs. In 627 plate appearances, he walked 66 times and only struck out 32 times. Lee definitely fits the control-the-zone philosophy of the Mariners and would help the strikeout problem they had in 2023.

MLB Trade Rumors predicts Lee to get a contract of 5 years at $50 million. Definitely a cheaper free agent option for the Mariners that could reap huge rewards.
