(AP) — Top Seattle prospect Jarred Kelenic and his agent believe the 21-year-old outfielder has been kept off the Mariners’ major league roster because of his refusal to accept a long-term contract offer from the franchise. Kelenic and agent Brody Scoffield told USA Today they believe Kelenic is being punished by the Mariners. Scoffield says it was made clear that Kelenic would have made his debut during the shortened 2020 season had he signed the deal.
