Drew Storen arrived in time to meet his new Mariners teammates, shake some hands and take part in pregame work prior to Seattle's series finale with the Pirates at PNC Park on Wednesday, but it'll take a little longer to see how the former Nationals closer fits in with his new team's bullpen.

The Blue Jays Got Something for Drew Storen: Joaquin Benoit

When the Blue Jays announced this past Sunday that Drew Storen was designated for assignment, I assumed he would just slip into the ether and walk away as a Blue Jay for good.

Should the Mets Pursue Drew Storen?

The Blue Jays designated Drew Storen for assignment on Monday, giving them 10 days to trade or release him before he becomes a free agent. The timing is a bit odd as Storen is going to become a free agent on Wednesday, August 3rd, two days after the trade deadline.
