The Seattle Mariners could also be a fit for some other Colorado Rockies players
Another player that the Seattle Mariners might be interested in is first baseman C.J. Cron. Ty France is their everyday first baseman and he has been one of their best bats (123 OPS+ on the season) but he is versatile.
He has extensive experience at second and third base, including 19 games at second base this year. With the veteran Kyle Seager manning third base, France could slide over to second. The other option is that he and Cron could split time between first base and DH.
The Mariners primary DH has been Luis Torrens. Torrens is primarily a catcher so the Mariners have three catchers on their roster (and currently, only a three-man bench). Both prospect Cal Raleigh (Mariners #6 prospect) and former Rockies catcher Tom Murphy have not particularly played well (Raleigh has only played in seven games but he’s hitting .130 and Murphy is hitting .197).
Torrens doesn’t have a high batting average (.226) but his OPS (.767) is 111 points higher than Murphy’s. So either Raleigh could be optioned or Murphy DFA’d. The other serves as Torrens back-up.
It should be noted too that C.J. Cron was the first baseman for the Angels in 2014 and 2015. The Angels GM at the time? Jerry Dipoto.
