MARINERS INTERESTED IN VICTOR MARTINEZ AND HANLEY RAMIREZ

Reports out there on the Hot Stove say that the Seattle Mariners are interested in both Victor Cruz and Hanley Ramirez.  Martinez is believed to be the Mariner’s top propriety, this Winter.  Martinez, primarily a DH, would help to beef-up the Mariner’s weak hitting lineup.

Martinez is coming off a career year and is 35-years-old, seeking a four-year deal. Ramirez will likely cost $100 million or more and has become a defensive liability at shortstop. So, yes, both of those guys present some risk. However, Ramirez has shown a willingness to play elsewhere — third base seems like a natural fit — and given how close Seattle came to a playoff spot in 2014 and that they have a still-in-his-prime Robinson Cano, the team is certainly in win-now mode.
