The desire of the Seattle Mariners Adding a bat has not been a secret, with the team linked so far in the offseason to players like the versatile Kris Bryant, Japan’s Seiya Suzuki, Trevor story and the already signed Puerto Rican Javier Báez (Tigres) and Marcus Semien (Rangers).

Seattle did indeed make an offer to shortstop Story before the lockout, presumably with the idea that Story would leave shortstop in deference to the youngster. incumbent, JP Crawford:

Jerry Dipoto, president of baseball operations, clearly stated earlier in the winter that the organization’s plan was to keep Crawford in that position, and reports since then suggested that the team’s interest in Story would likely be based on a move to second base.

In his latest email column, famous Seattle Times reporter Ryan Divish expands on some of the Mariners’ free agent goals, reporting that the team never had a face-to-face meeting with Semien, apparently due to a lack of interest on Semien’s part.

I am fond of the King of Sports, especially the Boston Red Sox in MLB and in general all of Mexican baseball. This profession has given me the opportunity to cover major events such as the Caribbean Series, the LMB All Star, LMP (uninterrupted since 2009), signings of important players. I had the chance to attend the 2013 World Classic in Arizona, USA, albeit as a fan. Apart from this beautiful sport, I love basketball, where I have also narrated games and even a friendly NBA 10 years ago, but I carry baseball in my veins. Graduated in Communication Sciences from the Autonomous University of Sinaloa (UAS) , from which I graduated in 2011. I was born in Mazatlán, Sinaloa and started in the world of sports journalism in 2004 in the newspaper El Sol de Mazatlán, where I was a baseball columnist and reporter at the same time. In January 2009 I came to El Debate as a journalist reporter and it was almost six years (in the first stage), until in November 2014 I emigrated to the radio providing my services in Línea Directa-Grupo RSN. My cycle there ended in July 2019 and within days, El Debate gave me another opportunity to work and opened the doors for me again. That is how I came to Al Bat, where I have been since 2019 as a web journalist.
