Mariners Interested In Prince Fielder, Want To Bolster Offense

The Seattle Mariners are one of the several emerging teams who plan to throw their hat in the ring in an attempt to sign free-agent first baseman Prince Fielder, MLB.com reports.

The Mariners, who ranked last in the major leagues in scoring last year, will reportedly head to the Winter Meetings next week with the primary goal of attaining players who can improve their offense. Fielder, who hit .299/.415/.566 with 38 home runs and 120 RBI in 162 games last year for the Milwaukee Brewers is considered one of the top sluggers on the free-agent market.

"There's no question we could use a big bat in the middle of our lineup, but where is your limitation and threshold?” Mariners general manager Jack Zduriencik told MLB.com. “We'll go down that road and experiment and see where it ends up, but until things get more definitive, we'll just have to wait and see."

Justin Smoak served as the Mariners first baseman last year. The 25-year-old hit .234 with 15 home runs and 55 RBI. Seattle finished with a 67-95 record on the season.
