The Seattle Mariners are interested in signing outfielder Brandon Nimmo, sources told Jon Morosi of MLB Network.

Seattle reportedly wants to add a left-handed bat and improve the club's overall on-base percentage. Landing Nimmo would help in both areas.

President of baseball operations Jerry Dipoto said earlier this week that the team is looking to add to its outfield during the offseason.

Nimmo, who accrued a career-high 5.4 fWAR in 2022, is considered the best outfielder available on the open market outside of Aaron Judge.

The 29-year-old Nimmo hit 16 homers with 64 RBIs and an NL-high seven triples to go along with an .800 OPS over 151 games for the New York Mets last season.
