What to Expect from Top Prospect Taijuan Walker's First Full MLB Season

It’s been a hectic past few months for Taijuan Walker.

Seattle Mariners: Grading Team's Moves so Far This Offseason

The Seattle Mariners have already made plenty of noise this winter, and if early signs are any indication, they'll continue to be busy until spring training.

The moves have not only been unexpected, but monumental as well and heavily focused on hitting. A new skipper is at the helm and a new superstar in town. 

The following moves are the biggest ones made by the Mariners so far, with their grades reflecting the quality of player/coach and value of their contracts.


Seattle Mariners Can't Afford to Leave Winter Meetings Without Big Splash

There are a number of clichés to characterize what the Seattle Mariners must do at the Winter Meetings. Strike while the iron is hot...Get while the getting's good...

Alright, maybe that's it. But the point stands: The Mariners need to do something. Preferably something worthy of headlines, as the one headline-grabbing move they have made this winter isn't enough.

Seattle Mariners' Deal for Robinson Cano Sends a Message to MLB

The Seattle Mariners are back. That's the main message that one can take away from their signing of Robinson Cano. The deal was first reported by ESPN Deportes' Enrique Rojas.

Seattle Mariners: The Definitive Blueprint for a Successful Offseason

For a team that finished with 91 losses like the Seattle Mariners, the offseason is exceptionally crucial. The roster is full of an interesting but not necessarily intriguing or promising mix of youth and experience, and it was ineffective last season.

Seattle Mariners: First Basemen Team Should Pursue This Winter

Contrary to what it may seem, the Seattle Mariners are a mess at first base. 

Justin Smoak was supposed to be Seattle's first baseman of the future, but has been wildly inconsistent, even getting demoted to Triple-A for stints in each of the past two seasons. The relegations have helped, but he hasn't made great strides in his offensive game. 

Seattle Mariners: Prospects Team Can Build Around

It's unclear what direction the Seattle Mariners want to go in. They have a wealth of young talent in the minor leagues, some of which has seen major league action. 

The front office also has some fairly deep pockets to play with this off season, so it will be interesting to see whether Jack Zduriencik wants to rely on a mix of veterans and youth, or bring in a superstar player or two to help right what has been a very disappointing and consistently mediocre ship.

Report Card Grades for Taijuan Walker's Much-Hyped MLB Pitching Debut
