Report: Mariners might pursue Hamilton

The SportsXchange

The Seattle Mariners, looking to bolster their hitting in 2013, are interested in slugging outfielder Josh Hamilton.

Mariners president Chuck Armstrong told that the team, led by general manager Jack Zduriencik, is still setting its course for free agency.

"We are going to have more money to spend," Armstrong said. "And we do need offense."

The Mariners ranked at the bottom of the American league this past season in numerous hitting categories, including battling average, total bases and runs.

Armstrong said Zduriencik "hasn't given me a proposal yet, so I can't gauge our level of interest yet" on Hamilton.

Hamilton hit .285 with 43 homers and 128 RBI in 148 games last season, his fifth with Texas.
