Seattle Mariners Update: Latest News Surrounding the Mariners
Steven Bisig-USA TODAY Sports

For the Seattle Mariners, the month of May has been quite an adventure.  

One minute they seemed keen on pushing their way toward the top of the division.  Then before you knew it, they ran into trouble and have, since this past weekend, sunk like a stone back toward the bottom of the AL West.  

With a record of 20-27 through end of day Wednesday, the M's find themselves sitting dead smack in the middle of the division unsure of what direction they're headed.  

Oddly enough, win or lose this spring, the Mariners have yet to generate the sort of chatter fans have grown accustomed to in recent years.  Perhaps the fact that ace Felix Hernandez is off the market this year has kept the rumor mill quiet?

While it's comforting to know that Felix should be staying put this season, there are a few topics I feel are worth keeping an eye on along with the rumors and speculation surrounding them.

The first will be a discussion debating the long-term prospects of one of the more pleasant surprises for the M's this season.  The second deals with a critical upcoming deadline involving a veteran currently at Triple-A.  Another will debate the future of a hot youngster still in the minors, and the final topic will cover the upcoming MLB draft in which the team will have the No. 12 overall pick.    

So, let's check out the latest news and rumors.
