The next time you drive past Safeco Field on Dave Niehaus Way, you might notice a few new faces on the walls that line the street.
The Mariners newly-acquired trio of Robinson Cano, Logan Morrison and Corey Hart recently had their photos placed on the wall alongside Felix Hernandez, Hisashi Iwakuma and Kyle Seager among others.
It has been a busy few days around Safeco Field. Less than 24 hours after introducing All-Star second baseman Robinson Cano, Mariners Executive Vice President & General Manager of Baseball Operations Jack Zduriencik announced that the club has signed infielder/outfielder Corey Hart and acquired infielder/outfielder Logan Morrison from the Miami Marlins in exchange for relief pitcher Carter Capps.
