SEATTLE —

Jason Bay took a glance at the Seattle Mariners' 40-man roster and suddenly realized how much of an outlier he will be.

He's one of only two players on that current roster who was born in the 1970s.

While he may not exactly fit the Mariners' model of relying on young prospects to rebuild the franchise, Bay could fill a significant need for Seattle in the 2013 season. Bay said Monday that he hopes a fresh start with the Mariners can put three seasons of struggles with the New York Mets behind him.

Bay says he'll take whatever role he can earn with Seattle, even if that means being in a platoon in the outfield. Manager Eric Wedge says if Bay can revert to the form he had in Boston and Pittsburgh, he could be exactly the right-handed bat the Mariners lineup needs.
