Sherill is missing some time the first few days of Seattle Mariners spring training.
“Bone spurs and floating bodies. I saw an X-ray of my elbow one time and it looked like someone had used meat tenderizer in there,” There’s nothing wrong that would prevent me from pitching."
“I’ll be back doing what everyone else is doing in the next day or two,” he said.
Sherrill said with a laugh.... (hmmm) This is scary isn't it?
Let's hope he's really OK. The M's are going to rely on his arm for at least 40+ appearances in 2012.
BEST OF MAXIM
And 1 I don’t…
I may be a bit on the odd side, I know, but I have to admit that I like watching the rebuilding process that the Seattle Mariners are going through.
It is exciting to watch the youngsters without the hefty paychecks and egos go out and just play baseball. It doesn’t mean that I don’t wish that the team had some elements that would actually help them to score...
A new year, and some fresh beginnings
With the 2012 MLB baseball season about to kick off, I thought I’d take a look at the Seattle Mariners roster going into this season and try to decipher who will have a breakout year.
There’s a guy who comes out of nowhere every year to take the league by storm, why can’t it be a Mariner this year?
With all but three starting...
PEORIA, Ariz. -- The Seattle Mariners' early arrival at their spring training facility in Peoria is easily explained as a byproduct of their unusual start to the season. The team goes to Tokyo for two regular season games with the Oakland Athletics on March 28 and 29.
But the Mariners aren't looking at the early jump on spring training as just a result of their atypical...
Mariners outfielder Michael Saunders and pitcher Steve Delabar used offseason workout routines that are different from the ones promoted by the team. The Mariners say that's OK, the goal is for the players to improve, no matter how they do it.
(Eds: APNewsNow. With AP Photos.) By BOB BAUM AP Sports Writer He is the ace on a team that is struggling to find respectability in the tough AL West, and the role suits Felix Hernandez just fine.
''King Felix'' says he is ''not going anywhere,'' exactly the position of the Seattle Mariners' front office despite speculation that inevitably surfaces...
As TSHQ continues our MLB preview, we stay in the American League and look to a team that has been on the down since they ridded themselves of Alex Rodriguez: the Mariners. From the days of the early 2000s, the Mariners looked like the cream of the AL West crop. Since their last playoff run, however, they have been in a perpetual state of rebuilding. After the Rangers and Angels...
Michael Saunders did indeed go out for batting practice and I was there to see him deploy the 60-ounce bat that I wrote about in the prior post.
You can see Saunders using it in this BP session.
Another hitter in his grouping was Vinnie Catricala, the Class AA minor leaguer with the power swing. There has been talk that the M's will convert Catricala to the outfield, but manager...
Greg Johns of MLB.com tweets that the Pittsburgh Pirates might sign utility player Chris Gimenez, who recently elected free agency after being outrighted by the Seattle Mariners. Gimenez can’t sign until Thursday after refusing the outright assignment.
In his career, Gimenez has a .171/.279/.272 line in 228 at-bats, including a .203/.314/.271 line in 59 at-bats in 2011. He’s...
Jesus Montero took some more batting practice today and when he got warmed up, the balls began flying out at a regular rate. Watch the reactions of people nearby in the video above as the home runs begin to fly, particularly Mariners front office special assistant Pete Vuckovich, wearing the light blue shirt.
I know it's a rarity, but with the depth the Mariners have at the starting pitcher position, what do you think of the Mariners going with a 6 man rotation?
I'm intrigued by the idea and honestly don't think I mind the thought one bit.
The Mariners haven't said a thing about this, this is me on a tangent.
What do you think?
Most of the Seattle sports world is abuzz today with the announcement of a broad plan to build a $500 million arena south of downtown that would house a new NBA team and possibly an NHL franchise as well. It's all still in the preliminary stages, but city and county officials today revealed that the plan would involve roughly $300 million in private funds and an additional $200...
We're having a rather cool morning here in Peoria, Ariz. today, with temperatures expected to stay this way for much of the week.
Back by popular demand, here's our Around the Blogosphere feature, with a look at some of the happenings in cyberspace involving the Mariners. First off, the Seattle Times has actually ramped up its spring training coverage this year -- which is...
