Sailors Reportedly Nearing Another Rotation Signing
By Jeff Todd | November 26, 2019 at 10:16am CDTMariners GM Jerry Dipoto is obviously concocting some pre-Thanksgiving shocks for fanatics of the establishment. The announced expansion of Kendall Graveman is nevertheless one of two contributing signings the works, as indicated by Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times (links to Twitter).
Anyway, is it the turkey or another side? It appears we’ll discover tomorrow first thing, when Divish says the second arrangement for a beginning pitcher will probably be declared.
The M’s entered the winter with evident needs in the turn. As MLBTR’s TC Zencka portrayed things in gathering together the requirements and open doors for the Seattle organization, it appeared to be conceivable that the club would seek after upwards of three new beginning pitching applicants on the open market and additionally in exchange.
Graveman — one of the potential focuses on that TC noted — is likely pegged to take one revolution spot. In any case, he could before long be joined by another. It isn’t difficult to envision the Mariners making somewhat of a sprinkle here. No, we’re not expecting another Robinson Cano-sized amazement. In any case, the club has the finance accessibility expected to seek after pretty much any pitcher it likes. It’s additionally conceivable, obviously, that the other new approaching arm will be to a greater degree a profundity alternative than an obvious revolution piece.
We won’t offer a particular suppositions here, as the conceivable outcomes are pretty much interminable. Dipoto is nothing if not freewheeling. There are some fascinating abroad potential outcomes, notwithstanding the full record of accessible pitchers that tossed in the majors a year ago. Could be squashed potatoes and sauce; may be minuscule onions. Ideally it isn’t canned cranberry “sauce.” It’ll be amusing to see who walks around Seattle with Graveman for Turkey Day.
