Mariners | Team lacks alternatives to play center field

One of the reasons why the Seattle Mariners decided to keep struggling OF Abraham Almonte on the major league roster is because they lack alternatives to play center field. Club officials feel OF Michael Saunders is better suited to play a corner outfield position, while minor league OF James Jones has limited experience above Double-A. Almonte is batting .198 with a .248 on-base percentage this season and leads the majors with 40 strikeouts in 106 at-bats.
