The Seattle Mariners aren't done trying to improve their outfield, as they've checked in with free-agent All-Star Andrew Benintendi, sources told Daniel Kramer of

Benintendi fits a specific need for Seattle as a hitter with high on-base abilities. He posted an OBP above .350 in three of his five full big-league seasons, including a career-best .387 mark last year. While he doesn't hit for a ton of power, his line-drive swing and Gold Glove-caliber defense could play well at spacious T-Mobile Park.

The 28-year-old was named an All-Star for the first time in 2022, posting a solid .304/.373/.399 slash line with five homers and 51 RBIs across 126 games split between the Kansas City Royals and New York Yankees. Benintendi also continued to play solid defense in left field.
