Willie Bloomquist officially back with Mariners


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/5/2013) Willie Bloomquist finalized his two-year, $5.8 million deal with the Mariners Thursday, bringing him back to where he began his major-league career in 2002. Bloomquist hit .317 in 139 at-bats last year with the Diamondbacks, but he missed significant time with an oblique injury and a broken hand.

"As of right now, I feel great, my body feels 100 percent and I'm ready to go," the 36-year-old told The Seattle Times. "I took a 94 mph fastball off my hand and broke a couple of bones in it. That's where I missed the bulk of my time. Injuries are going to happen. I've always tried to get between the lines and give it 100 percent. I feel like you are supposed to play that way. And along with that comes some injuries."

Bloomquist is expected to play a reserve role for the Mariners.

Diamondbacks file for free agency


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Diamondbacks have plethora of shortstop options


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/1/2013) The return of Willie Bloomquist after missing nearly two months with a broken bone in his hand has created a logjam at shortstop for Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson. Bloomquist's return means Gibson has a three-man rotation at shortstop, which also includes Didi Gregorius and Cliff Pennington.

"I’ll rotate the guys somewhat," Gibson said, per The Arizona Republic. "We didn’t score any runs (Friday) night, and I think Willie is probably the best shortstop we have, the most offensive. He puts the bat on the ball and allows us to do stuff."

The situation could even become more crowded if the Diamondbacks choose to bring up prospect Chris Owings, who was named MVP of the Pacific Coast League (Triple-A).

"He’s earned it, and he’s got a pretty good future ahead of him," Gibson said of Owings. "He’s going to fit in there somewhere, sometime, some way, somehow."
