The Mariner that is most likely to be dealt in the next few weeks, maybe even days is SS Brandan Ryan. The Braves are rumored to be very interested given Ryan is only making $1.75M and is one of the best defenders in the MLB. – Olney
Justin Upton rumors have swirled each offseason the past few years. Now they are heating up during the July trade deadline. The Mariners are expected to be interested but may be one of four teams on Upton’s no-trade list. Also, any chance of Upton wanting to remain with the Mariners longterm seems slim. – Geoff Baker
Jason Vargas, Kevin Millwood, Brandon League, Miguel Olivo and the previously mentioned Brendan Ryan should all generate interest from other clubs.
David Pauley has returned to the Mariners. Pauley was a piece in the Doug Fister trade with Detroit. In 145 innings with Seattle, Pauley has a 3.35 ERA.
Mariners 30th round selection, Mike Yastrzemski was offered a $300k signing bonus, per Peter Gammons. Yastrzemski chose to return to Vanderbilt to complete his degree. Of course, he is the son of Hall of Famer Carl Yastrzemski.
