In a new team podcast, Mariners general manager Jerry Dipoto said the club will make a "full-court press" for Shohei Ohtani.
Dipoto mentioned on that same topic that the team would be willing to play slugger Nelson Cruz a few days in the outfield to accommodate Ohtani being able to DH on the days he's not pitching. The Mariners have long been considered a candidate for Ohtani because of their history with Japanese players (Ichiro Suzuki, Hisashi Iwakuma, Kazuhiro Sasaki, just to name a few), but also because they have an obvious need for starting pitching. The fact that the M's would also be willing to let Ohtani hit, at least according to the podcast, is something that could serve them well in their bid for the 23-year-old two-way talent. It wouldn't be a major upset at all if Ohtani ends up playing for the Mariners, though it's too early to list them (or any other team) as a frontrunner. Nov 22 - 10:02 PM
