    M’S GET SOME BULLPEN DEPTH AND AN EXTRA OF BY TRADING AWAY SOME BULLPEN DEPTH.

    • Kurt Eger

      Last thing the Mariners need is OF help. Currently they have Haniger, Smith, Fraley, Lewis, Bishop, and a slew of utility guys that can cover corner outfield. Add in the two superstar prospects knocking on the door and it would seem illogical to lose value in the pen (an area of concern) only to bring back a more questionable arm and a player who appears to be redundant. If we were talking about a stud OF prospect who is clearly ahead of our other options or a specialty guy like Jarren Duran (BOS) or Justin Bean (ATL) who could offer a PR option with SB aptitude, sure.

      However, the Mariner are starting to gain depth in the minors in such a way that it may be hard to find spots for all our prospects on our 40-man roster soon. I would bet on the Mariners consolidating some prospects by trading a known quantity and some throw-ins for one solid prospect. An example might be Murphy, Long, Brennan, Moore for Biggio and McGuire.

      Clearly Murphy is an upgrade at catcher until Jansen is ready and then should act as a more than adequate backup catcher, pinch hitter, and part-time DH. Long should give approximate value at 2B, while the Blue Jays strengthen their bullpen and their bench. While the Mariners increase their ceiling at 2B and get a catcher who specializes in defense, is 5 years younger than Murphy, and is from Washington. These things make McGuire a great pairing for Cal Raleigh when he is ready in the mean time he should at least be able to guide a young pitching staff with his plus defense.

    M’S COULD USE SOME OF DEPTH WITH HANIGER HITTING THE SHELF EARLY IN THE SEASON. I’M NOT BETTING ON BISHOP, FRALEY, AND LEWIS TO PERFORM RIGHT AWAY. KELENIC AND RODRIGUEZ 1 1/2-2 YEARS AWAY FROM CONTRIBUTING. TUI IS TALENTED BUT OFTEN INJURED. BEEKS GIVING THEM A BULLPEN/SWINGMAN/OPENER TO EAT SOME OF DUNN’S AND SHEFFIELD’S INNINGS. AND ITS BEEN A WHILE SINCE THE M’S AND RAYS HOOKED UP IN A TRADE.
