He's still serviceable though. I would have loved to get him on the Jays and ship out Lind. Could have traded Happ plus some other parts to get him I bet. It's not like Vargas is sensational or anything.
If, Morales can show any kind of semblance of a decent hitter, it's a great trade for the M's. Vargas has really ugly home/away splits aided by pitching in Safeco Field.
Well, he's at least a decent hitter so that shouldn't be a problem. It may not work out this year but if the M's make some moves in the next year they could have something going. Still have a way to go but Morales is no scrub. He can flat out hit. I have a feeling he has a big bounce back year coming off of his "injury comeback year" even in Safeco.
Felix and Iwakuma mortal locks. Beavan is almost sure. Last two spots between Hultzen, Paxton, Noesi and Furbush. They probably sign another veteran.
Beavan is far from a lock. He wasn't good last season. Felix and Iwakuma are definites. Erasmo Ramirez looks like he should have a spot to lose, and the other two spots may be addressed through free agency or from the list you mentioned, though none of those guys may be ready yet.
