Behind Seattle Mariners SPs Felix Hernandez, Hisashi Iwakuma and Joe Saunders, SPs Blake Beavan and Erasmo Ramirez are the front-runners to fill out the rotation, but they'll have to withstand pushes from Ps Taijuan Walker, Danny Hultzen, James Paxton and Brandon Maurer. Also, SPs Jon Garland and Jeremy Bonderman are making good impressions early in spring. "They've both been very impressive," manager Eric Wedge said of Garland and Bonderman. "It's early in camp, and we have to see how they stand the test of wear and tear and going out there and pitching on a regular basis. But they're both going to get good opportunities to make this ballclub." Bonderman is weighing 220 pounds this spring, which is around 25 pounds less than he weighed when he played for the Detroit Tigers.

Seattle Mariners 1B Kendrys Morales will be penciled into the middle of the lineup for the team next season. "We have been focused on adding offense this offseason, and feel that Kendrys will be a middle-of-the-order bat for us," general manager Jack Zduriencik said. "He's a switch-hitter with power who has played - and hit - in the AL West. He's familiar with the teams and parks and is a proven run-producer." Morales will likely compete with 1B Justin Smoak at first base or serve as the team's designated hitter. Cs Jesus Montero and John Jaso could split time at DH, too. SPs Blake Beavan, Erasmo Ramirez, Danny Hultzen, James Paxton, Taijuan Walker and Brendan Maurer will be given a shot in spring training to crack a starting rotation that now includes only SPs Felix Hernandez and Hisashi Iwakuma.
