Not the biggest surprise in the world given that the M’s added Corey Hart and Logan Morrison yesterday, but:
The #Mariners are letting teams know that Jesus Montero, as well as Justin Smoak, are available in trades.

Both would seem to be prime candidates for a change of scenery anyway, as their status as top prospects has fizzled in Seattle. Indeed, it’s hard to find two hitters in all of Major League Baseball who have performed more poorly than Smoak and Montero. Each are still young, however, so it’s not out of the question that they’ll be plusses for someone, somewhere.
