Chone Figgins (and Scott Cousins) DFA’d, 5 Added to 40 Man

Tuesday night was the last day teams had to add players to the 40 man roster to protect eligible prospects from the Rule 5 draft. This was one of the reasons for the Andino-Robinson trade, and caused a flurry of moves around baseball (including former Mariner Adam Moore being designated for assignment by the Royals). […]


Utility Infielders for the Mariners to consider on the Free Agent Market

Dustin Ackley used his […]


Ranking the Players on the Mariners 40 Man Roster

With September quickly approaching, many teams (especially losing teams) will want to bring up young players when rosters expand to 40. However, for one to be brought up, they have to be placed on the 40 man roster. So here I rank the players on the Mariners 40 man roster from 1-40. With the off-season […]
