Voglebach, on the other hand, is a bit of a wildcard.
He was acquired by the Mariners last season in a trade with the Cubs. Stuck behind Anthony Rizzo, Voglebach really had no available spot on the big league club. Now that he is with Seattle, he is going to get the chance he was waiting for.
During the 89 games with the Cubs Triple-A affiliate, he had a wRC+ of 158. If he can create anywhere near that many runs in the majors this season the Mariners will be in line for a major boost in run support.
What To Expect
The platoon of Lee and Lind last year combined to hit .245 with 34 HRs, 107 RBI and scoring 81 runs while striking out on 23% of their at-bats.
