According to Ken Rosenthal and Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports, the Mariners were recently in touch with the Dodgers about a possible trade for Andre Ethier.

Talks failed to progress, so there will be no deal. Rosenthal and Morosi were told that one other AL team inquired about Ethier, but the identity of the club isn't known. On a potentially related note, CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reported Thursday afternoon that the Red Sox were told at the start of the winter that Either was "unavailable."
