Whether or not you agree with everything the Seattle Mariners have done this offseason, the one thing no one can say is they are boring.
Signing Robinson Cano to hit in the middle of the lineup and play second base gives this franchise instant credibility after years of trades and drafts that have failed to yield any positive results.
The good news is Cano joins Felix Hernandez, Hisashi Iwakuma and Taijuan Walker to give Seattle a very solid nucleus to build around. There are still plenty of holes to be filled, but it's a more interesting team than it's been in years.
Looking at the system, which still includes Walker, there's some intriguing talent at the lower levels with good "low-risk" options at the top.
Recent promotions like Mike Zunino, Nick Franklin and Brad Miller have thinned out Seattle's top 10, but all three flashed promise at the big league level. If they continue to grow, the Mariners could be a surprise in the American League West.
Let's dive into the Seattle Mariners' top 10 prospects for 2014 to discuss what their future looks like.
