07:35 AM ET 02.14 | Seattle's offseason dealings may reach pretty well near spring training. Negotiations between [the Mariners] and free agent outfielder Nelson Cruz are currently "on hold", according to multiple league sources. One source believes that Cruz's camp was unwilling to come down enough in asking price, and that the two sides were not seeing eye to eye in negotiations. ... The Mariners have been looking at options on the starting pitching market, and a source indicates that they have "slowly been coming along" in their pursuit of Ervin Santana. With Hisashi Iwakuma out for 4-6 weeks due to a finger strain and top prospect Taijuan Walker dealing with some shoulder soreness at the beginning of spring training, the Mariners are likely to look at some free agent starters.

With the camps now open Nelson and your drug involvement and lack of hitting in the past at Safeco has your demands gone, and if you want to play this year and get paid it is looking like the M's will tell you what your salary will be.

the mariners shouldn't sign neither Santana or Jimenez this two guys will be a major dissaster for the seattle organization,whenever there is a emergency signing contract likely heavy concecuences are to happen,the worse should be expected as soon as the spring training be over!!
