After amassing a meager 71 wins in 2013, the Seattle Mariners made the one of biggest splashes of the offseason by signing Robinson Cano to the fourth-largest contract in MLB history.

Cano will be asked to fill the void of departed power hitters Raul Ibanez and Kendrys Morales, who combined to hit 52 home runs last year.

In addition to Ibanez and Morales, Seattle will also have to do without its Nos. 3 and 4 pitchers from last year’s starting rotation: Joe Saunders and Aaron Harang.

With these four departures, players like Cano, Felix Hernandez and Hisashi Iwakuma will be expected to produce even more than in past seasons.

Based on last year’s main statistics for hitters (AVG, HR, RBI, hits and OBP) and pitchers (record, ERA, strikeouts, WHIP and saves for relievers), combined with this year’s expectations, here are the Seattle Mariners’ most important players heading into 2014.
