Seattle Mariners SP Brandon Maurer is the long shot to win the No. 5 spot in the starting rotation, according to The Seattle Times' Geoff Baker. SP Jon Garland can control his own destiny based on how he fares in his next spring outing. Even if Garland doesn't win a spot, Baker thinks SPs Blake Beavan and Erasmo Ramirez will get the final two spots. Maurer has been good but hasn't stood out above the other competitors.
Fantasy Tip: Ramirez probably has the most upside of anyone in this competition if you're speculating on a winner in deep mixed leagues or AL-only formats. Garland is worth a dice roll in AL leagues since he has the leg up on one of the rotation spots.

Seattle Mariners SPs Brandon Maurer, Blake Beavan or Erasmo Ramirez won't be pitching out of the bullpen if they don't make the starting rotation. Maurer, Beavan and Ramirez are competing with SPs Jon Garland and Jeremy Bonderman for the final two rotation spots this spring, and the young pitchers will be sent to Triple-A Tacoma if they don't make the roster. Bonderman or Garland might also be sent down, but it's doubtful both will. With the way Garland has pitched, he's likely to crack the rotation.
Maurer is going to have to be very good the rest of the spring because he's yet to pitch at Class AAA and has plenty of options left. Ramirez missed a big chunk of last year with an elbow injury and had only limited success last year. Beavan's arm is developed enough to handle a large workload, so he might be the most likely to win a rotation spot.

The Seattle Mariners won't rush SPs Danny Hultzen and Taijuan Walker to the starting rotation this year. SPs Erasmo Ramirez, Blake Beavan and Jon Garland probably have a leg up on a rotation spot this spring because of their experience. The team also won't rush Ps James Paxton or Brandon Maurer to the majors.

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.
