Grading Each Member of Seattle Mariners' 40-Man Roster as Summer Begins
Associated Press
Felix Hernandez and Robinson Cano predictably get top marks, but how does the rest of the Mariners' 40-man roster grade out in 2014?

As the 2014 season rolls on well into June, the Seattle Mariners find themselves in the surprising position of being four games over .500 and are currently in possession of the second American League Wild Card spot.

As expected, the Mariners have been led by their two superstars. Robinson Cano is among the league leaders in average, and Felix Hernandez is well on his way to challenging for the AL Cy Young Award.

But the Mariners are in a position to contend because of the success of some of their other players. Roenis Elias, Chris Young and Michael Saunders have all performed well above expectations to help mask some of the weaknesses on Seattle’s roster.

The Mariners have had to deal with almost no production from the shortstop and designated hitter positions, plus a black hole at the back of the rotation. Still, through 64 games, most of the Mariners’ 40-man roster grades out highly.
