SEATTLE —

The Seattle Mariners' offseason focus was on adding bats to the worst offense in baseball.

They believe they accomplished their goal with the additions of Kendrys Morales and Michael Morse, and they hope Jason Bay and Raul Ibanez still have some pop left in their bats.

The additional benefit is that they added some veterans that manager Eric Wedge and general manager Jack Zduriencik (zur-EN'-sik) believe will bring more help to the clubhouse than previous veterans provided for a team trying to build around a young core group.

When the Mariners arrive at spring training next month, they will be a healthy group. Only two players underwent offseason surgery and both second baseman Dustin Ackley (ankle) and shortstop Brendan Ryan (elbow) have been cleared for all activity.
