Mariners - Signed Everett
Seattle Mariners - Signed OF Carl Everett to a 1-year contract.
Everett still has a role with a major league club in the right situation but this is one of the worst places for Cambrian Carl to be. Everett’s not the same player he used to be - his only real offensive contribution now is the home run. But now he’s moving from a park with a 3-year HR Factor in the 1.3s to one in the 0.9s and apparently, given a full-time job as a DH instead of a 4th-outfielder off the bench. It’s hard to see what the Mariners are getting out of this - I’d rather sign now-free agent Bucky Jacobsen back and hope he’s recovered fully from the knee problems that ruined his 2005 season. I’m sure the White Sox will acquire Everett back in August.
