MLB Trade Rumors: 5 Seattle Mariners on the Block in 2014

MLB Trade Rumors: 5 Seattle Mariners on the Block in 2014

So far so good for the Seattle Mariners and the changes they made during the offseason. They find themselves at the top or fighting for the lead in the American League West and all is well with the world. That will change a little as the season gets tougher and they will probably want to edit their roster a bit to maximize their postseason potential. Here are five players that could be on the trading block in that situation.

Hart can play a few places including DH of course. He only has a one year deal right now so the Mariners might want to put him out there and see what offers they could get.

4 – John Buck – C

Buck is very good backup catching option. If a team starts hurting for a good veteran option behind the plate, the Mariners would likely be wiling to listen to offers for Buck who also only has a one year deal.

3 – Chris Young – SP

Young has started some games and is able to come out of the bullpen. He is having a decent year right now so could be someone that the Mariners want to move considering his contract status which is the same as the previous two options. Getting something in return for his services once their starting staff resumes full strength would not be a bad move.

One thing that many teams will want to get plenty of when the end of the season begins to roll around is left-handed relievers. If the Mariners can find enough strength in their pen to make the move, a trade of Beimel might bring a nice return.

1 – Erasmo Ramirez – SP

Ramirez has been great in his starts this season and it might seem crazy to think of trading him but he could bring a good return and he has not shown this level of success for long before. If he is doomed to return to his previous ERA of around four or five plus, the Mariners might entertain offers on him once they are more healthy in the starting department.
