The 2013 season is winding down for the Seattle Mariners. In theory the team will continue to work hard for every win, but the reality is that there is little to play for at this point of the season in terms of team outcomes. That doesn’t mean that the individual effort will stop. Right now, players are fighting for future jobs.
For Seattle fans there is always next year, though that is not necessarily a sentiment that inspires great confidence these days. Certainly there have been signs of growth from this team, but it is difficult to make a strong argument that this franchise is on the brink of contention.
Still, there are some intriguing prospects that may eventually be stars in this league. Here are the top prospects after the 2013 season and when they may eventually make it to Safeco Field.
