According to ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick, the Mariners are scouting the Cubs’ Todd Walker.
Walker would be platooned with Eduardo Perez at DH and would be used against right-handed pitching. From 2003-05, Walker has batted .290/.346/.458 against right-handers. The 33 year-old impending free agent makes $2.5MM this season. The Cubs have been trying to trade him since spring training.
