Seattle Mariners rumors: Seattle signs Corey Hart, trades for Logan Morrison

Seattle Mariners rumors have the team pulling off a trade for Logan Morrison and signing free agent Corey Hart. These Seattle Mariners rumors all come from Wednesday (Dec. 11) as the team looks to add more assets for the 2014 MLB season. A report from ESPN states that the trade for Morrison involved sending out reliever Carter Capps. It was a simple deal intended to help the offense and gives the Miami Marlins a good bullpen arm.

Team To Sign Major Free Agent Pitcher?

Morrison is a 26-year-old outfielder who can also play first base. He is coming off an unproductive season due to injuries, which have been a problem since he debuted. Morrison does have home run power if he can stay healthy, but that has been the same problem with Franklin Gutierrez over the years. It's a very minor move in the scheme of things, but maybe the front office sees something he could bring to the clubhouse.

Hart comes over in a one-year deal, but he missed the entire 2013 season due to injuries. He definitely has a lot of power and could be someone used to protect Robinson Cano in the batting order. During the 2012 MLB season, he had a .270 batting average with 30 home runs and 83 RBIs. Those would be great numbers to see in Seattle, especially because he is a right-handed power hitter that can play the outfield and first base as well.

These Seattle Mariners rumors will likely be confirmed by the team soon, with both players adding to the depth of the current roster. Corey Hart is an interesting signing because he was an All-Star for the Milwaukee Brewers, but he may have to prove himself to fans hungry to make it back to the postseason.
