A Tuesday report suggested the Seattle Mariners
were willing to trade many of their top players for the right return this offseason.According to Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports Blake Treinen Jersey , the Mariners have told teams that they will move "just about anyone" if the trade market is strong. In the same vein, Seattle is open to rebuilding.Mariners general manager Jerry Dipoto responded to the rumor later Tuesday, per Greg Johns and Maria Guardado of MLB.com:"Clearly over-dramatized is the best way to put that. We're open-minded to different ways we can get better, but what we're hoping to achieve is to reimagine our roster to look at it in terms of what is our quickest path to a championship club."We know what the Astros, Red Sox, A's, Yankees and Indians look like. We don't want to be a perpetual competitor for the second wild card. We want to build a championship roster. If that means in 2019 we field as competitive a team as we can while earmarking and gathering talent, we're not looking to rip our club down. We're just too talented to do that."Passan noted that there are caveats involved since infielder Jean Segura has a no-trade clause, and the M's will ask for huge hauls in return for outfielder Mitch Haniger, starting pitcher James Paxton and closer Edwin Diaz.Jon Heyman of Fancred later added that it "sounds" like the Mariners will keep Haniger, Diaz and pitcher Marco Gonzales but noted, "Everyone else is up for grabs."The Mariners missed the playoffs last season with an 89-73 record, and they have not reached the postseason since 2001, which is the longest active drought in Major League Baseball.Seattle appeared on track to end the drought during the first half of the 2018 season Chris Hatcher Jersey , but a second-half surge by the Oakland Athletics ended the Mariners' season early once again.Despite missing the playoffs, the Mariners had some hugely productive players on their roster last season.Offensively, Segura hit .304 with 10 home runs, 63 RBI and 20 stolen bases, while Haniger hit .285 with 26 homers and 93 RBI.Also, impending free-agent designated hitter Nelson Cruz hit .256 and led the team with 37 home runs and 97 RBI.Pitching-wise, Paxton went 11-6 with a 3.76 ERA and 208 strikeouts in 160.1 innings.Diaz enjoyed one of the best seasons ever by a closer, as he posted a 1.96 ERA, struck out 124 batters over 73.1 innings and recorded an MLB-leading 57 saves.With 62 saves in 2008, Francisco Rodriguez is the only closer to finish with more saves in a single season than Diaz.One name that is likely to come up often in trade talks this offseason regardless of whether the Mariners tear down the roster is former ace Felix Hernandez.The six-time All-Star and 2010 American League Cy Young Award winner struggled through a career-worst season in 2018, as he went 8-14 with a 5.55 ERA.Hernandez may not have much left in the tank, but he has only one year remaining on his contract, which could make the 32-year-old a low-risk acquisition for pitching-needy teams.Prior to the start of the 2018 season, Baseball America ranked Seattle's farm system as the worst in Major League Baseball.Given the lack of talent coming through the pipeline and Seattle's inability to reach the playoffs http://www.athleticsfanproshop.com/authentic-khris-davis-jersey , a rebuild may be the best way to make the Mariners a contender in the coming years. The Chicago White Sox will try to snap a five-game losing streak when they visit the Kansas City Royals to open a three-game series Monday night at Kauffman Stadium.Chicago (56-87) has struggled against most of the American League this season, but it has fared much better against Kansas City. The White Sox are 10-6 against the Royals this season with a dominant run differential of 94-69.This marks the final series of the season between the teams, who occupy the last two spots in the AL Central.Article continues below ...Kansas City (47-95) trails only the Baltimore Orioles for the worst record in baseball. Barring a late surprise, the Royals will have the No. 2 overall pick in next year’s draft as it attempts to dig out of a multiyear tailspin.The Royals will try to bounce back from a 3-1 walk-off loss to the Minnesota Twins on Sunday afternoon. Royals reliever Jason Hammel gave up a double to Max Kepler and a homer to Willians Astudillo, all with two outs, for the team’s fourth loss in its past five games.White Sox right-hander Lucas Giolito (10-10, 5.85 ERA) will make his 29th start. The 24-year-old has shown improvement since the All-Star break, posting five quality starts in his last seven outings, but he is coming off a turbulent game in which he gave up five runs (four earned) in 1 1/3 innings against the Detroit Tigers.In five career outings against the Royals, Giolito is 3-0 with a 2.01 ERA. He picked up his first win against Kansas City in 2017 and has two victories in three starts against the club in 2018.White Sox manager Rick Renteria said Giolito and fellow starter Reynaldo Lopez have thrown more strikes lately.“Their lines to the plate are better,” Renteria recently said to reporters. “(Pitching coach Don Cooper) talks to those guys. They talk about back-to-front, keeping a good line, ‘staying in the tunnel,’ as he talks about.“I think they understand they’re not always going to make a perfect pitch Boog Powell Jersey , but they make adjustments a little quicker now. If they pull off line, those are one of the things that — especially in talking to them — that they’re able to recover. They know exactly what they’re doing, and they’re able to make the adjustment.”For the Royals, right-hander Jakob Junis (8-12, 4.32 ERA) will make his 27th start. He has won back-to-back outings, limiting opponents to two earned runs in his past 16 innings for a 1.13 ERA during that span. One more victory will tie his career high of nine, which he set as a rookie last year.Junis is 1-1 with a 6.48 ERA in three career starts against the White Sox. The Sterling, Ill., native has surrendered a half-dozen home runs in 16 2/3 innings while walking eight and striking out 15.Less than two weeks ago, Junis posted the first complete game of his career.“It’s awesome,” Junis said to the Kansas City Star. “That’s a goal you set to do. … Hopefully more to come.”
