It appears the Seattle Mariners are about to become big sellers.
The Mariners are deep in sell mode and are "trying to trade everyone," a source associated with a rival team told Jon Heyman of MLB Network.
Beyond the reported trade talks with the Philadelphia Phillies regarding Jay Bruce, the likes of Edwin Encarnacion, Ryon Healy, Dee Gordon, Tim Beckham, and Mike Leake are also being discussed, Heyman reports.
The biggest name mentioned is Encarnacion, whom Mariners general manager Jerry Dipoto acquired from the Cleveland Indians in the offseason. The three-time All-Star is hitting .239/.352/.467 with 13 home runs and 34 RBIs.
After starting the season 13-2, Seattle has since gone 12-33 and sits dead last in the AL West heading into Saturday's action. The club is 14 games back of the first-place Houston Astros.
The Mariners have hit the second-most homers (103) in the majors so far this season but their .243 team batting average ranks 22nd out of 30 clubs.
Pitching, meanwhile, has been a major issue for Seattle in 2019. The club's 5.21 ERA is second-last in MLB and Mariners hurlers have accrued a combined 1.9 WAR according to FanGraphs, good for third-last.
