Jarrod Saltalamachia is a free agent after 2013. AJ and John Buck are also available as is Brian McCann.
McCann or Saltalamachia are both relatively young and provide lefty power (Salty is a switch hitter). For their careers, McCann has a much better OBP than Salty.
With the log jam they have at 1B, DH and C, I wonder if Seattle might move John Jaso. In 2013, Jaso would be a nice compliment to Tyler Flowers.
