While the Rangers are currently focused on their battle with Oakland for the A.L. West, an equally formidable opponent could be brewing in the Pacific Northwest.

According to a report from Fox Sports’ Ken Rosenthal, Nelson Cruz could be heading to the Seattle Mariners, as sources say the club is showing “strong interest” in landing the former Rangers slugger.

Rosenthal writes that after acquiring lefty second baseman Robinson Cano this off-season, the Mariners would have a “formidable right-handed complement” in the middle of their order.
