  • Mariners' Kyle Lewis: Could be designated hitter

    General manager Jerry Dipoto said Wednesday the team is counting on Lewis to produce as a hitter in 2022, but is unsure if he will play center field, left field or designated hitter, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports.

    Considering Lewis has missed so much time in recent seasons with lower-body injuries -- he finished the 2021 season on the 60-day injured list with a bone bruise in his right knee -- it makes sense for Lewis to get more starts at designated hitter going forward. The Mariners may add other players still this offseason, but for now Lewis should be able to play pretty regularly as long as he's healthy.

  • Mariners' Abraham Toro: Could add OF eligibility

    Toro will get some outfield reps in spring training to increase his versatility, Corey Brock of The Athletic reports.

    Toro will be eligible at second base and third base already, and it sounds like there's a chance he could also earn outfield eligibility in the coming season. He hit .252 with five home runs and three steals in 60 games for Seattle last season.

  • Mariners' Andres Munoz: Inks four-year deal with Seattle

    Munoz agreed to a four-year, $7.5 million contract with the Mariners on Tuesday, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports.

    The deal will buy out all of Munoz's arbitration years and also includes multiple club options. The 22-year-old righty missed all but the final weekend of the 2021 campaign while recovering from Tommy John surgery, but he showcased himself well in his first taste of big-league action in 2019 with a 3.91 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 30:11 K:BB over 23 innings.

  • Mariners' Casey Sadler: Secures one-year deal

    Sadler agreed to a one-year, $1.025 million contract with the Mariners on Tuesday to avoid arbitration, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.

    Sadler put together a fantastic 2021 campaign and will head into 2022 with a new deal. He posted a 0.67 ERA, 0.72 WHIP and 37:10 K:BB over 40.1 innings while recording 15 holds, and he should begin next season as a key bullpen piece for Seattle.

  • Mariners' Robbie Ray: Headed to Seattle

    Ray signed a five-year, $115 million contract with the Mariners on Monday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

    Ray won the 2021 AL Cy Young Award after he posted a 2.84 ERA and 1.04 WHIP in 193.1 innings across 32 starts during his first full season with the Blue Jays. The 30-year-old will now be rewarded with a long-term deal that includes an opt-out clause following the 2024 season.

  • Mariners' Adam Frazier: Shipped to Seattle

    Frazier was sent from San Diego to Seattle on Saturday in exchange for Ray Kerr and Corey Rosier, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

    Frazier started the season strong with the Pirates but was far more mediocre down the stretch following a trade to the Padres, though he still finished with a .305/.368/.411 slash line, good for a 114 wRC+. He makes a ton of contact, as his 10.8 percent strikeout rate was good for fourth among qualified hitters, but that contact is among the weakest in the league, with his 1.0 percent barrel rate ranking third-worst among that same group. Don't expect him to improve significantly on his meager five homers, but another average close to .300 is certainly possible and should come with plenty of runs if he settles into a role atop Seattle's lineup.

  • Mariners' Ray Kerr: Added to 40-man roster

    Kerr's contract was selected by the Mariners on Thursday.

    Kerr finished the 2021 campaign at Triple-A Tacoma and posted a 4.09 ERA and 1.27 WHIP in 11 innings across 12 appearances (one start). He'll join the 40-man roster to protect him from the upcoming Rule 5 draft.

  • Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Contract selected by Mariners

    Rodriguez's contract was selected by the Mariners on Thursday.

    Rodriguez will unsurprisingly be added to the 40-man roster to protect him from the upcoming Rule 5 draft. The 20-year-old advanced to Double-A Arkansas in 2021 and slashed .362/.461/.546 with seven homers, 35 runs, 26 RBI and 16 stolen bases. He'll likely be in the mix to make his major-league debut at some point in 2022.

  • Mariners' Alberto Rodriguez: Contract selected by Seattle

    Rodriguez's contract was selected by the Mariners on Thursday.

    Rodriguez will be added to the 40-man roster to protect him from the upcoming Rule 5 draft. Across 100 games at Low-A Modesto and High-A Everett last year, the 21-year-old slashed .289/.379/.470 with 10 homers, 80 runs, 65 RBI and 15 stolen bases.

  • Mariners' J.P. Crawford: Looks like everyday shortstop

    Mariners general manager Jerry Dipoto said Tuesday that Crawford will be the team's starting shortstop in 2022, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports.

    Dipoto noted that Crawford's presence would dissuade the Mariners from pursuing free-agent shortstops such as Marcus Semien, Javier Baez or Trevor Story, but any potential additions would seemingly be in line to move to another position to keep Crawford entrenched at his normal spot. Crawford has proven to be a plus defender at shortstop throughout his career, but it wasn't until 2021 that he emerged as a league-average hitter. He wrapped up the past campaign with a .257/.333/.380 slash line to go with 12 home runs, 57 RBI, 82 runs and nine stolen bases, but he could see his production suffer in the latter two categories if the Mariners bring in a more established leadoff option this offseason.

  • Mariners' Evan White: Set for normal offseason

    White (hip) has resumed taking part in baseball activities and is expected to have a normal offseason program, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

    The 25-year-old underwent hip surgery in July and was limited to 30 games in 2021, as Ty France took over the everyday role at first base for Seattle. France is now set to open 2022 as the starting first baseman, per Divish, while White will work in left field during the offseason and spring training to try and add some versatility to his game. White had a .599 OPS in 54 games during the shortened campaign in 2020, and his main positive was his defense as he won a Gold Glove, so he'll need to produce more offensively next season to have a chance of sticking around the big-league roster.

  • Mariners' Ty France: Sticking at first base

    President of baseball operations Jerry Dipoto said Tuesday the Mariners will begin the 2022 season with France as the team's starting first baseman, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

    France is primarily viewed as more of a second baseman by trade, but he offers strong versatility and spent most of his time at first base in 2021 to go along with 19 appearances at the keystone and five at third base. Even though he's not the prototypical power bat at first, the 27-year-old produced at the plate with a .291/.368/.445 slash line, 18 homers, 32 doubles, 73 RBI and 85 runs in 650 plate appearances.

  • Mariners' Jake Bauers: Cast off 40-man roster

    The Mariners outrighted Bauers to Triple-A Tacoma on Wednesday.

    After being acquired from Cleveland on June 10, Bauers proceeded to hit .220 with two home runs and six stolen bases across 182 at-bats with the Mariners. The lack of power from a corner-outfield bat made it tough for the Mariners to justify keeping Bauers on the 40-man roster heading into the offseason, and none of baseball's other 29 organizations were willing to dedicate a spot to the 26-year-old either when he was available on waivers. Bauers should still get the chance to compete for a bench role with the Mariners in spring training, assuming he doesn't elect free agency.
