M’s - Reportedly Close to Signing Washburn
Seattle Mariners - Reportedly are nearing terms on a contract with P Jarrod Washburn.
This is supposedly all but done now, for 4 years in the 9 per range. The Mariners are a really hard rotation to upgrade - they obviously can’t do any better than Felix and the rest of the pitchers are generally mediocrities. Washburn is a little better than that, but he’s not going to really enough to push the Mariners up in the standings. A full season of King Felix pitching well, Rafael Soriano being healthy, and Johjima hitting well (anything from catcher is a massive upgrade) are going to determine if the Mariners can battle for 3rd. At this point, pitching-wise, the best the Mariners can probably do now is go into the season with Hernandez-Moyer-Washburn-Meche-Pineiro with Foppert in the pen, Franklin dumped for a 26-year-old A-ball reliever or non-tendered, and watch Bobby Livingston’s performance in Tacoma closely.
This still smells like a 4th-place team to me.
