According to Jon Morosi of Fox Sports the Mariners are still pursuing free agents Shin-Soo Choo, Carlos Beltran and Nelson Cruz, among others.
Evidently the Mariners are dumping out their bank accounts this offseason in hopes of finally being a competitive ball club in 2014. Choo would be a very nice get for Seattle and provide Robinson Cano somebody to be on base when he comes to the plate.ANALYST: Jeff Mans
Rangers released OF Nate Schierholtz.
Schierholtz was informed that he would not make the team, and the outfielder opted to request his release from the club instead of being sent to the minors. He'll now search for another club that can provide him with a spot on the 25-man roster. Analysis: Ben Diamond
