The first real rumor of the Mariners’ offseason is kind of a doozy. Today, baseball insider Héctor Gómez forwarded a report that the Mariners are among the teams involved in an eight-horse race for the services of impending free agent outfielder Marcell Ozuna. This comes as quite the surprise, especially with Gómez mentioning that teams may go as high as to offer Ozuna a seven-year contract worth around $160 million.
According to Dominican sports journalist @Adanlesther OF Marcell Ozuna could get a 160M$/7 years contract. Reds, White Sox, Marlins, Blue Jays, Cardinals, Royals, Athletics and Mariners on pursuit as of now.
