After a cold winter and a 99-day MLB lockout, baseball returns — and with it, optimism and hope for a new season coupled with occasional sun breaks in Seattle in April .
With Thursday’s agreement to a new five-year collective bargaining agreement, we can finally turn our attention away from contentious talks at the bargaining table and instead focus on the 2022 Mariners.
With just over $70 million in salary pledged so far, the M’s have cash to spend and potential deals to strike. And with spring training games slated to begin as early as next week, a full offseason of offers will have to be squeezed in a week.
As Mariners beat reporter Ryan Divish, it’s time for GM Jerry Dipoto.
When we stopped, the Mariners had just signed defending Cy Young winner Robbie Ray and added infielder Adam Frazier to kick off the offseason in November. But Seattle has since been linked to other big names still in the market, including Kris Bryant, Trevor Story and Seiya Suzuki.
The M’s knocked on the playoff door last season. Will they take the necessary steps to push them to the top in what should be a frantic week of action? Follow the latest news and rumors here.
