Along with Cano, they also signed solid veterans, Corey Hart (1B/OF) and John Buck (C), off of free agency. Their latest major signing is reliever Franando Rodney, as the right-hander agreed to terms on a two-year, $14 million deal, and will be the starting closer for the club. Along with the big signings, they also can aspect solid rookie seasons from Taijuan Walker and James Paxton, who will be joining the starting rotation with big names, Felix Hernandez and Hisashi Iwakuma. With all the pieces falling into place, are the Seattle Mariners a prime contender for the 2014 season? Only time will tell.
