Corey Hart, Logan Morrison to Seattle Mariners

Jeff Hanisch-US PRESSWIRE

Free agent outfielder/1B/DH Corey Hart has reportedly agreed to a one year deal with the Seattle Mariners, and outfielder/1B/DH Logan Morrison has reportedly been traded to the Mariners

The Seattle Mariners have made a pair of moves to shore up their 1B/DH/COF situation, signing free agent outfielder Corey Hart to a one year deal and acquiring Logan Morrison from the Florida Marlins in exchange for pitcher Carter Capps.

Hart, who will turn 32 in March, has a career .276/.334/.491 slash line during his 9 seasons in Milwaukee, but spent all of 2013 on the disabled list.  He was a player the Rangers reportedly had some level of interest in, and with a one year deal, he'll be looking to show he is healthy and cash in after the 2014 campaign.

Morrison, 26, has three years of team control left.  He put up a .259/.351/.460 line in 2010-11, but has struggled the past two years, only hitting .236/.321/.387.  He was someone viewed as a potential "change of scenery" buy-low candidate.

The M's have Justin Smoak and Jesus Montero, as well, and the Twittersphere believes this could be a prelude to a Smoak trade.  The Mariners also have indicated a desire to bring Kendrys Morales back to Seattle, though these moves would seem to make a Morales re-sign less likely.
