Report: Mariners interested in Carlos Santana
Troy Taormina / USA TODAY Sports

The market for first basemen continues to heat up, as the Seattle Mariners are the latest organization to show interest in Carlos Santana, per Jon Morosi of MLB Network. Both sides have yet to engage in discussions over a deal.

The 31-year-old is slated to meet with the Boston Red Sox this week.

The Mariners' interest makes sense, as the club is in the market for an offensively-capable first baseman with Yonder Alonso testing free agency. In addition to Santana, the Mariners have been linked to Mitch Moreland and Lucas Duda.

Santana has spent his entire eight-year career with the Cleveland Indians and is coming off a season that saw him hit .259/.363/.455 across 154 games. Santana was incredibly durable during his tenure in Cleveland, averaging 153 games played since 2011, and is renowned for his plate discipline with 689 walks - second most among qualified first baseman over that span.
