Another 2020 MLB season preview, another team deep in a rebuild: It's the Seattle Mariners.
Tonight, on the evening of September 26th, Seattle will witness the probable end of a Mariners career which fits that description perhaps better than anyone. Felix Hernandez will forever be an idol in the eyes of Mariners fans, yet perhaps it is common that people forget the extent of his dominance early in his career as a consequence of his struggles over recent seasons.
Philadelphia Phillies have traded with the Seattle Mariners, acquiring left-handed outfielder Jay Bruce.
The Mariners' offense is off to a flying start and maybe we should not be so surprised if they are competetive this year.
Seattle Mariners won 89 games in 2018, but Jerry Dipoto overhauled the roster in the offseason. A retool, if not rebuild, is beginning.
The Reds sent second base prospect Shed Long and a competitive balance draft pick for the upcoming 2019 draft to New York in exchange for Gray and minor-leaguer Reiver Sanmartin.
Carlos Santana, Edwin Encarnacion, Jake Bauers and Yandy Diaz all changed teams on Thursday as the Mariners, Rays and Indians made a big trade.

Brodie Van Wagenen has pulled off a brilliant move to land two stars.
James Paxton's move to the Yankees shows Dipoto knows what he has to do this summer.
The popular Mike Zunino looks a good acquisition for the Rays, while Smith fills a hole for Seattle.
Seattle were almost a playoff team in 2018. Instead, they are going to tear their roster down.
Baseball is back. The elongated offseason meant it sort of never went away, but that was okay. Then the never-ending Spring Training made it seem like Opening Day was just a mirage amidst the split-squad games and minor league invitations.
