NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson talks about the moving of Jesus Montero to AAA Tacoma and other roster moves the Mariners could make. The Mariners are now 20-27, 10 games behind the Texas Rangers, and in need of some changes. And it looks like we’ll get some very soon, as moves have been rumored in the past day that could really shuffle the big league lineup. A Jesus swap is taking place. Jesus Montero down to Tacoma, Jesus Sucre up to Seattle.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners’ blogger Danny Ferguson talks about the 40-man roster situation the Mariners will soon be faced with. While their 40-man is currently set, there still some room for players to either jump onto it or be cut from it. As such, the M’s are likely to let younger invitees get more opportunity in the minors before making any major changes to the roster. This really eliminates the reality of guys like Mike Zunino and Nick Franklin from seeing in major league time in 2013.
