Some have always envisioned Ellsbury going home to play in Seattle, which could use an outfielder but is not believed to have a lot of money in its budget.
If the Yankees help pay down the .4M guaranteed left on Ellsbury's deal, perhaps a deal could commence.
According to Jon Heyman of Fan Rag Sports, the Yankees will shop Ellsbury--with the Seattle Mariners looming as a team many think would make sense for the 34-year-old.
