2018

2017

Motter's 80-at-bat cup of coffee with the Rays was certainly nothing to write home about, as he managed a .188/.290/.300 line with two homers and nine RBI. Furthermore, after swiping 20-plus bags at four different minor league stops, he disappointingly failed to get on the board in that category at the big-league level. Despite his forgettable major league debut, it's prudent to keep in mind the 27-year-old's previous body of work, which includes 96 extra-base hits in the 2014-15 seasons at the Double-A and Triple-A levels, respectively, including a combined 30 homers over that span. He also drove in 133 runs and stole 41 bases during that period, keeping him on the radar in deeper formats. Having been dealt to the Mariners as part of a five-player deal on Nov. 18, Motter will try to parlay his positional versatility into a spot on Seattle's 25-man roster this spring.
