    Mariners position analysis: Will Seattle find its answer in left field with a platoon?

    During the 2020 “summer camp” at T-Mobile Park, he wowed the Mariners with his astonishing talent and power potential, he raised a few eyebrows with a youthful a self-confidence that was a somewhat endearing but earned cockiness, forced a conversation about pushing his timeline to his big league debut and unintentionally introduced fans to the concept of service time manipulation. In the 2021 spring training, with the help of the infamous Zoom video of former team president Kevin Mather, the focus centered on just when he would make his much-awaited MLB debut and the reasons for the Mariners decision on the timing of it. By 2022 spring training, the fan base's feelings of anticipation and lofty expectations had subsided after a less-than-stellar rookie season that saw early struggles, a demotion back to the minor leagues and strong finish in the final month.

    Dylan Moore and the Seattle Mariners agree on three-year, $8.875 million extension

    On Wednesday, Jeff Passan of ESPN reported a since widely confirmed bit of breaking new: the Seattle Mariners have agreed to a three-year contract extension with UTIL Dylan Moore worth $8.875 million guaranteed. The deal buys out Moore's 2023 and 2024 seasons where he was in arbitration as well as locking up what will be his age-33 season in 2025, for an average annual rate of $2.958 million per year. Performance escalators could push Moore up to $9 million overall ($3 million AAV). The deal fits the theme for Seattle, which has been aggressive and fairly successful in convincing its players to sign contract extensions in recent years.
