The Seattle Mariners have maintained a dialogue with Kendrys Morales, although no contract agreement is close.

Some believe the Mariners are upset with Morales and Scott Boras for turning down a one-year, $14.1 million qualifying offer, but Jack Zduriencik says that's not the case.

"It strictly has to do with where they're at (in negotiations) and where we're at," Zduriencik said.
