|2019-11-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)||With Dipoto reportedly shopping Omar Narvaez, does it make sense to check team's interest in Marco Gonzales? He is equally very unsexy and very valuable. But throwing 89mph, He isn't exactly an arm I'd want to bet on being good when the Mariners are good again. A good reliable guy for the Angels maybe in exchange for a Marsh/Adams led package?
(Paul from Providence)
|One of the Mariners' problems in 2019 was running up against the limits of the assumption that having a guy be able to run out there every five days is enough. Now, Gonzales wasn't as bad as Yusei Kikuchi or Mike Leake, but I don't think it's especially likely we see him moved for much of significance—that 4.00 ERA across the last two seasons looks worse when you remember it's been half in Safeco/T-Mobile. If someone picks up Gonzales I doubt it'll be for a top-10 prospect in their system. (Free Agent Chat w/Ginny Searle)|

(bg from SEA)
|Castillo and Paddack in their own tier, but interesting that both are dominating with basically two pitches. Then probably Folty, and uhhhh tough to decide between the bottom two. I still think Kikuchi stabilizes into a solid #3-type, and Odorizzi has been riding a hell of a lot of HR luck for a fly-ball pitcher. (Jon Hegglund)|

(Sam from SEA)
|He's 27, has thrown 1000+ in innings in a non-developmental league and won't spend a day in the minors. We don't consider him a prospect. (Jeffrey Paternostro)|
|2018-12-12 17:00:00 (link to chat)||Should I burn my number 1 waiver on Yusei Kikuchi? It's either him, or 17-18 year old prospects that will be newly added to the player pool. |
(Sean99 from Orland Park)
|I'd go for Kikuchi. (Mike Gianella)|
No BP Roundtables have mentioned this guy.
