Prospect says M's manipulating his service time

Prospect Jarred Kelenic and one of his agents told USA Today that it was "crystal clear" that the Mariners' decision to not call him up to the majors in 2020 was based on service time after he turned down a guaranteed contract in 2019.

Yankees manager Aaron Boone spoke out strongly against service time manipulation in light of the comments made by now former Mariners president and CEO, Kevin Mather: “I don't think that's a good thing. I'm fortunate to be in an organization where we don't do that or play that. When guys are ready, or we feel like they're ready to impact the club, that's that. And that's how we treat things around here. If somebody is truly being held down, I think that's terrible.”

Mariners GM 'embarrassed' by exec's comments

Gerrit Cole said that he hopes the comments made by Mariners former president and CEO Kevin Mather are a wake up call for MLB players: "Every player should wake up and read the news on the guy in the Mariners. That's the kind of way a lot of clubs are acting. That's just not productive for anyone. This guy's talking about players that are making him money. It's tired, man, and I think players are over it. And if they haven't been awakened to that type of behavior, that's what goes on."
