Denard Span: Mariners decline 2019 option
Span had his $12 million mutual option for 2019 declined by the Mariners and will become a free agent, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
The Mariners opted to pony up for the $4 million buyout instead, sending Span into free agency. The 34-year-old slashed .272/.329/.435 with seven home runs in 94 games after being traded to Seattle from Tampa Bay while serving in a platoon role in left field. The veteran outfielder shouldn't garner much long-term interest but is likely to find a home somewhere, possibly on a minor-league deal.
