“The Mariners have been pursuing Starling Marte in trade talks, though it unclear if the Pirates are willing to part with their left fielder after signing him to a five-year, $31-million contract in spring training. The Pirates are said to have interest in number of players on the Mariners’ Class AAA Tacoma farm club, including right-hander Taijuan Walker and middle infielders Nick Frankllin and Chris Taylor. All are considered major league-ready by many scouts.”
