Vasquez-USA TODAY SportsThere has been lots of rumors flying around about whether or not Andre Ethier will be traded, and the newest team in question is the Seattle Mariners.

Jon Heyman, a CBS baseball insider, tweeted:
There's also the issue of money. Rick Randall of FOX Sports tweeted: It would be an interesting move for Seattle, and he did play better last year than the year before, which is both a good case to trade or keep him.

The Dodgers are looking to win now, and they aren't afraid to spend the money to do it. If they want Ethier gone, they don't have to work hard to find a place where his salary will fit in; they'd just as soon buy him out. The front office still hasn't said anything about him finding a new home though. No doubt these rumors will continue to trickle in even well into the season.

Are the Mariners really adding Ethier or Stanton to build a team of outfielders and DH?
