Mariners Seeking Right-Handed Bat, Pitcher

Mariners assistant GM Jeff Kingston outlined the team's targets in weekend talks at Fan Fest.  MLB.com has video, and Jon Shields of Pro Ball NW transcribed quotes.

Kingston says the Mariners are in talks for a right-handed bat who can help out at DH and first base, and may land one in the next week.  To Shields, the quotes imply that the player would help at DH more than first base.  Shields speculates on Ryan Garko and Jermaine Dye as free agent possibilities.  I'll add Marcus Thames as another guess.  Jonny Gomes hits lefties but doesn't have first base experience.

Kingston didn't provide clues about the pitcher, but he also expects to acquire one in the next week.  The Ms will watch Noah Lowry throw tomorrow, and have also been linked to Jarrod Washburn in some reports.
