The Mariners have lost five in a row!
Don't panic, it's only spring training.
Even so, the M's' recent skid is disappointing considering the blazing hot start they got off to just a couple weeks ago. The bats have cooled off, yet their 119 runs are tied for the most in baseball.
Last year, Kyle Seager broke out and had a pleasantly surprising campaign, leading the club in four offensive categories. Along with other young Mariners, Seager brightened the horizon for the Mariners' future. With the offseason additions of veterans to complement the up and comers, a winning season is surely within the realm of possibility.
The spring has yielded surprises and disappointments as it does every year. With Opening Day just over two weeks away, it's clear that players on the fringe of making a roster spot will be heavily looked at for consideration.
With the aforementioned veteran signings, Seattle has a projected roster chock-full of returning players with little room for adjustments.
Based on spring training numbers thus far and projected roster availability, here are some surprise players who could make an impact this upcoming season.
