Updated:

The Seattle Mariners weren't expected to make a lot of noise in the AL West. The problem was they made even less. Over the last handful of seasons, they have gutted the middle of their batting order. To date, they haven't found a source of power to replace these lost bats. The Mariners played six games under their expectations last year, and some envision them having even more problems in 2020. Their batting order is a list of who's that players from top to bottom. Only at third base is there any name recognition.

There is another looming problem. Seven Seattle hitters are projected to bat under .250. In addition, every projected starting hitter is estimated to strike out more than 100 times. This doesn't bode well for offensive efficiency. Now we look at the five-man rotation that Seattle is showing. There isn't a single starter that projects top-20 in the American League. Only their number-one ace is projected to win more games than he loses. There are a couple of youngsters who might improve Seattle's pending fortunes, but don't expect it to be much.

Seattle Mariners FAQ

Seattle is in the midst of a major rebuild, and are fielding a team of young players. However, the speed of this team should make them at least fun to watch, especially with most of them being higher-end prospects.

You also have Kyle Lewis and Shed Long, who are younger names that are looking to establish themselves in the Mariners long term plans. There are a few older names on the team, but not by much.
