ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports the Rangers have mild interest in Seattle outfielder Michael Saunders.

The Mariners have been shopping Saunders for a few weeks now and it seems they have finally landed an interested party in the form of division rival Texas. Saunders is arbitration-eligible for the second time after an injury-plagued 2014. The 28-year-old outfielder has put up some promising numbers in the past.

The Mariners are close to signing Kyle Seager to a seven-year, $100 million extension.

Well this will certainly thrust the usually underrated Seager into the spotlight. He's got three-straight seasons with 20 or more home runs and set a career-high of 96 RBI last year. His plate discipline has remained very stead, he can swipe a few bases here and there and he's batted no lower than .360 with a .330 on-base percentage in each of the three seasons. Throw in roughly 30 doubles per year and you've got yourself one heck of a cornerstone at third base. Given the troubles we've witnessed at the position last year, Seager could easily start this season as a top-seven third baseman heading into drafts this coming season.

Mariners have gained another option year on left-handed pitcher Danny Hultzen.

A player becomes eligible for a fourth option year when he's been optioned in three seasons but has yet to accrue five full professional seasons. This works to the Mariners advantage as they can now move him back and forth next year without needing for him to clear waivers at any point. Hultzen missed all of the 2014 season after undergoing off-season surgery to fix a torn rotator cuff and a torn labrum. Over 30.2 innings with Triple-A Tacoma in 2013, he posted a 2.05 ERA with a 34:7 K/BB ratio.

Mariners send minor-league infielder Ty Kelly to St. Louis for RHP Sam Gaviglio.

Kelly is probably the better player in this deal as he has the ability to play the super-sub role for St. Lous. We'll see how things shake out, but don't count on either player cracking their respective 25-man roster next spring.

Mariners select RHP Mayckol Guaipe, C John Hicks and INF Ketel Marte to 40-man roster.

More roster shuffling as 40-man rosters needed to be finalized by Thursday. All three players are now protected and have no chance of being drafted in the Rule 5 Draft.

Mariners have claimed left-hander Edgar Olmos off of waivers from the Marlins.

The Mariners will try to stash Olmos, but will have to put him on the 40-man roster to do so.

Mariners have signed Cuban pitcher Misael Siverio to a Minor League deal.

Siverio isn't one of the more high-profile Cuban defectors, but he did post a 1.94 ERA during the 2012-13 season in the Serie Nacional and helped pitch his team into the championship. He doesn't have a dominating fastball and posted just a 6.3 K/9 that season, but could break in with the Mariners after a good showing in spring training.

Robinson Cano was hit in the right foot by a pitch during Saturday's game against Samurai Japan. It resulted in a non-displaced fracture of Cano's pinkie toe and he will need three-to-four weeks to recover.

Better now than later, right? It's a bummer of an injury but not something that is going to affect the second baseman in the long-run. If anything, this will at least help limit the risk of something really serious happening to him. This offseason injury will have no affect on his 2015 fantasy value.

Travis Witherspoon was released by the Mariners.

The 25-year old spent all of last season in High-A where he hit 15 home runs and stole 25 bases in 99 games. His power and speed combination will get him some looks, but he isn't fantasy relevant in 2015.
