Traded to the Mariners along with Steve Trout on Dec. 22, 1987, Cotto played parts of six seasons in Seattle and is currently still employed as a hitting coach in the Mariners' farm system. Cotto is one of the top base-stealers in team history, swiping 102 bases during his tenure. He added 420 hits, 34 HR and 156 RBI before being traded to the expansion Florida Marlins in 1993 for Dave Magadan.
Nicknamed "The Hackman," Leonard played the final two seasons of his 14-year career in a Mariners' uniform in 1989 and 1990. In 1,044 at bats in Seattle, Leonard belted 34 homers, pounded out 266 hits and drove in 168 runs. He put up solid numbers in 1989 with 24 HR and 93 RBI. An interesting note on Leonard is that he finished his MLB career with exactly 1000 strikeouts.
