Seattle Mariners rumors: Willie Bloomquist signing could frustrate Mariners fans

See also

Seattle Mariners rumors about a Willie Bloomquist signing are receiving mixed reactions. These Mariners rumors about Bloomquist might even anger some fans that were hoping a big-time outfielder would be signed by the team this offseason. According to a report from Monday (Dec. 2), the two sides are close to a reunion.

Team To Sign Major Free Agent Pitcher?

Most fans will remember him as a utility player that was with the team for seven seasons before heading to the Kansas City Royals. He has played 128 games for the Arizona Diamondbacks over the last two seasons, serving as a utility player and late-inning defensive replacement. He posted a .725 OPS and no home runs during that time, showing that he probably isn't the answer for any team when it comes to offensive improvements.

It's unclear why Willie Bloomquist is being sought after by the team and these Seattle Mariners rumors seem to be contrary to really improving the current roster. While he could certainly serve as a decent utility player for some MLB teams, it's hard not to wonder who he would be replacing on the current roster. Is there a plan to trade away someone like Dustin Ackley, who has been playing both infield and outfield for the team?
