The Los Angeles Dodgers are in pursuit of outfielder Teoscar Hernandez in free agency.
Hernandez was ultimately not tendered a qualifying offer by the Mariners and will instead hit the free-agent market for the first time. The veteran hit .258 with 26 home runs and seven stolen bases across 160 games in 2023 but also produced a wRC+ of at least 130 in three straight seasons from 2020-2022 with the Toronto Blue Jays.
The Marines declined to extend a qualifying offer Monday to OF Teoscar Hernandez.
Hernandez will now enter free agency without any suitors having to worry about offering up a draft pick to sign him. The Mariners will now be in the market for a corner outfielder if they do not attempt to work out a deal with Hernandez in free agency.
