Analysis: Hart can stay healthy, getting the two-time All-Star for one season on a relatively inexpensive deal could be a significant coup for the Mariners, who have made adding offense a top priority this offseason. It started with the stunning deal for Cano that was agreed to last week and was said to be worth $240 million over 10-years agreement. It continued by adding a needed right-handed bat in Hart that can provide protection in the lineup.
