Seattle Mariners Top 10 Trade Assets

The Seattle Mariners have a rather enormous offseason ahead of them. A lot of the club’s tasks include maximizing roster spots without sacrificing future assets, but unquestionably trades will be a part of what GM Jerry Dipoto does to build a team, even after the executive said he’d probably slow down the movement. The club is thin in trade assets, but here are the Top 10, which includes three prospects.   10. Evan White, 1B White has a ways to go but figures to move relatively smoothly through the minors…
