Could (or rather, should) the Seattle Mariners trade for Starling Marte?

Yesterday, following MLB Trade Rumors’ release of their annual arbitration salary projections, the publication shifted its attention to the potential trade market for current Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Starling Marte. The 31-year-old Marte is coming off a 3.0 fWAR season in which he slashed .295/.342/.503 with 23 home runs, 82 RBIs, and 25 stolen bases, and still has two years left of club control at a very fair price for his level of production ($11.5 million in 2020, $12.5 million in ’21).

Of the teams listed in MLBTR’s article, you’ll find the usual suspects: the Mets, Phillies, Reds, Rangers, etc.
