The Mariners were highly active this off-season, as they worked to strengthen their roster for 2024. Making trades with 30% of the teams in MLB, while also adding bullpen depth and offense in free agency. There are sure to be many new faces in Peoria, Arizona at the Mariners training facility
as players report for Spring Training.

Jerry Dipoto and Justin Hollander did a phenomenal job of improving the Mariners roster under the budget constraints they had to work with. Their trades and free agent decisions helped subtract strikeouts from the roster, which was a stated goal for Dipoto and Hollander this off-season. Gone are third baseman Eugenio Suarez, outfielder Jarred Kelenic, and outfielder Teoscar Hernandez, who struck out a combined 557 times (31.2%) in 2023.

The Mariners front office brought in third baseman Luis Urias, outfielder Luke Raley, and outfielder Mitch Haniger to replace those guys. Along with adding DH/C Mitch Garver in free agency and acquiring second baseman Jorge Polanco in a trade with the Twins. By shuffling the lineup this off-season, the Mariners hope to have more contact and less swing and miss in 2024.

How each of these new pieces fits into the Mariners lineup will be exciting to follow in Spring Training this year. Seattle is going to have a new designated hitter, second baseman, third baseman, and corner outfielder(s) in 2024. With all the moves that were made this off-season, Spring Training will help sort out the new Mariners lineup. Here are three new Mariners to watch in Spring Training.
