Mariners DFA Leonys Martin

I see he’s been struggling mightily but this still surprises me. While it seems clear he’s not going to deliver on the promise he showed early in his career, he’s still got 10 career WAR, 3 WAA through age 28 and seems to still play a competent CF. Price tag if grabbed on waivers is whatever is left of $4.9 M.

Help wanted! These problem positions have plagued teams for a decade

Almost every team has a problem position—you know, that spot where one season a hot prospect is starting (and failing), the next season it’s a washed-up vet, then some random Triple-A player—and the team can never get out of that cycle.

Maybe your favorite club has one, like left field for the Seattle Mariners. This one goes way back. Ken Griffey Jr. patrolled center field 11 seasons for the Mariners and played next to nine different regular left fielders, including Pee Wee Briley, Jeffrey Leonard, Kevin Mitchell, Eric Anthony, Jose Cruz Jr. and Brian “The Fast One” Hunter. The Mariners have had problems filling the position in recent years as well. Norichika Aoki was supposed to be the answer last season, wasn’t the answer, and now they’re hoping Jarrod Dyson is the answer, although even that is a short-term fix as he’s an impending free agent.

So let’s see if Seattle’s left fielders have been as awful as Mariners fans believe, and who has had it even worse over the past decade.
