Seattle Mariners rumors: Ervin Santana linked to Mariners, interest remains

Seattle Mariners rumors have the team still showing interest in Ervin Santana. These Seattle Mariners rumors come from Wednesday evening (Dec. 18), with the team possibly closing in on signing the right-handed starting pitcher. According to a report from CBS Sports, the continued interest has been confirmed by multiple sources.

Santana put together a nice season with the Kansas City Royals last year, pitching 211 innings and posting a 3.24 ERA. He had 161 strikeouts and 51 walks during 32 starts. This was his only season with the Royals after pitching eight years for the Los Angeles Angels. The team has faced him quite a bit over the years as a result.

In 15 career starts at Safeco Field, Santana has posted a 7-5 record with a 4.13 ERA and 1.345 WHIP over 93 2/3 innings. Those aren't the best numbers, but the team just needs to sign another starting pitcher that can eat up a lot of innings for the next few seasons. If he could duplicate the numbers he had during the 2013 MLB season, fans would be quickly enamored with him.

These Seattle Mariners rumors might indicate that the team would like to sign Ervin Santana, but it may also directly impact the pursuit of Masahiro Tanaka. If Tanaka doesn't post, expect the pursuit of an MLB free agent starting pitcher to increase, but if he does, negotiations with anyone not named Tanaka might get put on hold.
