They have 6 outfielders on the roster making a combined $90 million next year, which is crazy.
Wells, Ellsbury, Soriano, Beltran, Ichiro and Gardner.
I think the Mariners will end up regretting the Cano deal, but I suppose they had to do something. What are they doing with Ackley? Still holding on to him being an everyday player somewhere?
Ackley, Smoak, Montero, Franklin, Seager and Miller are probably all trade bait for SEA since Cano is in the fold (with Bloomquist) so much is variable. Ackley can play OF, but his bat doesn't justify it.
My guess is one of those guys or more gets traded with a pitcher (outside Walker) to get a bat.
