The Seattle Mariners' 25-man roster has been set for the 2014 MLB season. Among the expected players on the Seattle Mariners' 25-man roster there are a few players that ended up earning a spot thanks to impressive Spring Training performances. According to a report from the team on Saturday night (Mach 29), there are quite a few interesting names in the mix.

Kendrys Morales Return Possible?

The bullpen will have Yoervis Medina, Danny Farquhar, Charlie Furbush, Hector Noesi, Tom Wilhelmsen, Fernando Rodney, and Joe Beimel. Beimel and Furbush will serve as left-handed situational pitchers, Farquhar is the main set-up guy, and Rodney will serve as the closer. They will back up a starting rotation that consists of (in order) Felix Hernandez, Erasmo Ramirez, James Paxton, Roenis Elias, and Chris Young. With Hisashi Iwakuma and Taijuan Walker on the disabled list, the team had to make some interesting choices.

When it comes to the catchers on the Seattle Mariners' 25-man roster, Mike Zunino will see most of the starts with John Buck serving as his backup. The infield will have Justin Smoak at first base, Robinson Cano at second base, Brad Miller at shortstop, and Kyle Seager at third base in most games. The roster also has Willie Bloomquist as its main utility man. The outfield could see shifts depending on match-ups, with Dustin Ackley, Abraham Almonte, Michael Saunders, Corey Hart, and Stefen Romero making the club. Logan Morrison is also on the roster as someone that could fill in at one or more of the positions.

The Opening night lineup hasn't been revealed by manager Lloyd McClendon just yet, so there is still some debate about what the batting order is going to look like.
