Mariners re-signed INF/OF Burt Reynolds to a minor league contract.

The 26-year-old, who is the cousin of Mariners superstar Robinson Cano, spent the 2014 season split between Class-A Clinton and High-A High Desert where he slashed .267/.337/.503 with 16 homers and 56 RBI in 92 games. He's nothing more than minor league depth for the M's.

Mariners acquired RHP Sam Gaviglio from the Cardinals in exchange for INF/OF Ty Kelly.

Gaviglio, a former fifth-round pick, held a 4.28 ERA with 126 strikeouts over 136 2/3 innings at Double-A this season. The 24-year-old could start next season at Triple-A.

Mariners purchased the contract of SS Ketel Marte from Triple-A Tacoma.

Marte is coming off a fine year, having hit .304/.335/.411 with four homers and 29 steals between Double- and Triple-A. He's now on the 40-man roster.
Nov 20 - 9:33 PM

Mariners purchased the contract of C John Hicks from Triple-A Tacoma.

He's now on the 40-man roster. Hicks batted .290/.351/.403 with five homers between Double- and Triple-A this past season.

Mariners purchased the contract of RHP Mayckol Guaipe from Double-A Jackson.

Guaipe thrived in a move to the bullpen this season, holding a 2.89 ERA and 56/9 K/BB ratio over 56 innings. He's now protected from the Rule 5 Draft.

Mariners claimed LHP Edgar Olmos off waivers from the Marlins.

The 23-year old made five appearances at the major league level last year. He gave up nine runs over five innings. He'll serve as bullpen depth for the Mariners.
Nov 20 - 5:13 PM

Mariners signed LHP Misael Siverio to a minor league contract.

A Cuban defector, Siverio pitched in Mexico this past season, posting a 2.45 ERA and 36/10 K/BB ratio over 29 1/3 innings. FanGraphs's Kiley McDaniel says the lefty will get a split contract that pays him a $275,000 bonus in addition to $120,000 in the minors and $508,000 if he reaches the majors. It's a depth addition for the Mariners.
Nov 17 - 6:22 PM

Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports that the Mariners have "fielded inquiries from a few teams" on Hisashi Iwakuma.

Cafardo doesn't list who those teams are but does say the Red Sox "have had at least internal conversations" about the right-hander. Iwakuma boasts a 3.05 ERA over 61 starts since the beginning of the 2013 season and is relatively cheap at $7 million, so the Mariners would want a lot in return. It's not clear at this point how interested they are in moving him.

Robinson Cano will be sidelined for the remainder of the All-Star Series game against Samurai Japan after being diagnosed with a non-displaced fracture in his right pinkie toe.

Cano left Saturday's contest in the eighth inning after being hit by a pitch. He's expected to need 3-4 weeks to recover and should resume full baseball activities in mid-December. He'll be fully healthy and ready to go for spring training.

Robinson Cano is heading for a precautionary X-ray on his right pinkie toe after getting hit by a pitch during the eighth inning of Saturday's All-Star Series game against Samurai Japan.

Cano is expected to be fine, they just want to ensure that he didn't break anything. He stated his desire to return for Game 4 on Sunday, though there's a strong likelihood that he'll be held out. The MLB squad hasn't fared well thus far in the showcase, dropping each of the first three contests, including being no-hit by four Japanese hurlers.

Adam Rubin of ESPN New York was told by multiple insiders that the Mets could find their shortstop in a trade with the Mariners.

The Mariners dealt Nick Franklin to the Rays in a three-team trade in July, but they still have Brad Miller and Chris Taylor in-house and could deal one of them to upgrade in another area. The Mets have reportedly talked to the Mariners about a trade for one of their shortstops before, so they should have a good sense of what it could take to get a deal done. However, Miller's value is much lower now than it was a year ago.
Nov 12 - 11:14 AM

Corey Hart is "getting a lot of hits" in free agency, according to CBS Sports' Jon Heyman.

Hart batted just .203/.271/.319 in 68 games this past season for the Mariners and got designated for assignment at the end of September, but it's a weak market for offense and there are obviously some teams out there who feel the 32-year-old can bounce back. Hart hit .270/.334/.507 with 30 home runs in 2012 for the Brewers. He then needed surgery on both of his knees and missed the entire 2013 campaign.
Nov 10 - 10:48 AM

MLB announced Friday that Chris Young was named as the AL Comeback Player of the Year.

Young didn't pitch at all in the majors in 2013 while dealing with injuries, but he was a surprising contributor in the Mariners' rotation this season, posting a 3.65 ERA over 29 starts and one relief appearance. The veteran right-hander stayed healthy enough to log 165 innings, giving him his highest total since 2007.
Nov 7 - 1:12 PM

Jerry Crasnick of ESPN reports that the Mariners are expected to shop Michael Saunders "hard" at next week's GM meetings.

Saunders is arbitration-eligible for the second time this winter and Crasnick writes that both sides appear ready to move on. The 27-year-old earned $2.3 million this season while batting .273/.341/.450 with eight home runs and 34 RBI over 78 games. His season could have looked a lot better if he didn't miss so much time due to injury. He should draw plenty of interest if the M's truly intend to shop him.
Nov 7 - 12:04 PM

Kyle Seager has been named the 2014 American League Gold Glove winner at third base.

It's debatable as to whether he's most deserving, but Seager, a first-time winner, is undoubtedly a terrific defensive third baseman. He beat out Adrian Beltre and Josh Donaldson for the award.
