Chris Cotillo of MLBDailyDish.com reports that Ian Desmond "remains a possibility" for the Mariners.
The Nationals don't seem optimistic about signing Desmond to a long-term extension, so they might decide to get something for him now even though he'd be a big part of a contending team in 2015. The Mariners are reportedly close to trading for a hitter, and it's possible Desmond might be their guy. The shortstop will make $11 million in 2015 before hitting free agency next winter.
