In light of the hip injury suffered by the Seattle Mariners Mike Carp we've learned today via Twitter
from M's Seattle Times beat writer Geoff Baker that the team has recalled 1b Justin Smoak from the AAA farmclub Tacoma Rainiers.
He flew out of Nashville this morning, expected to be here in time to play tonight.
IN 2012 for the Mariners Smoak stats looked this way.

BEST OF MAXIM
GOOD TO BE THE KING
Felix Hernandez was utterly dominant against the Rays on Wednesday, pitching the 21st perfect game of the modern baseball era.
Who’s hot, who’s not?
The Seattle Mariners continued their streaky ways last week, going 2-4 on the backside of their road trip. The good news is that those 2 wins came against the Angels…IN Anaheim. The Mariners scored 26 runs over the course of the week while their opponents put up 31 on them.
The Mariners are 45-19 when they score 4+ runs. They achieved the 4 run mark 4...
Mike Carp hit the DL, courtesy of the remarkable stretch he made below:
The Mariners called up Justin Smoak to take his place. Smoak is a known commodity and got sent down because he wasn't hitting all that well. I saw him in Tacoma a few times, and he did not look much better to me. He did not hit a home run in 82 AAA plate appearances. The biggest difference was Smoak'...
Montero Mash x2
Oh how sweet it is to beat the Angels in Anaheim. Especially off of their pride and joy Jarred Weaver.
Jesus Montero went yard not once, but twice, in the 2nd, and 6th innings respectively against Weaver.
For the Mariners slugger, it was homeruns number 11 and 12 on the year.
Even with Hector Noesi exiled to Tacoma, the Mariners are looking like the winners in the...

It’s that time of year again. The season is winding down and once again the M’s are out of contention. But this is never a boring time of the year. As a matter of fact, quite the opposite.
Now, we get to speculate and evaluate how the club’s top prospects are doing and who may get a September call-up to get his first taste...
Seattle Mariners starter Blake Beavan battled yet again on Monday night giving up 4 runs in 6 innings, striking out 4 and walking none. Prior to this start, Beavan had been on a roll winning 4 of his last 5 outings and only walking a whopping total of 2 batters in 34.1 innings, while striking out 24. His recent success was been tied to a retooling of mechanics and this appears to...
Eric Thames' two-out single in the bottom of the ninth inning gave the Seattle Mariners a 3-2 victory on Tuesday night and snapped the Tampa Bay Rays' seven-game winning streak.
Kyle Seager started the winning rally with a single to right field off Tampa Bay closer Fernando Rodney, and pinch-hitter Chone Figgins pushed a bunt that first baseman Carlos Pena fielded. Pena...
Yup, another perfect game in the 2012 Major League Baseball season.
This time, it was thrown by one of the best non-publicized pitchers in the game, Felix Hernandez of the Seattle Mariners.
The 26-year old struck out 12 Tampa Bay Rays hitters on the way to the 1-0 win at Safeco Field. Ironically, the M's were part of this years other perfect game by Chicago White Sox pitcher...

He’s won an American League Cy Young Award. He’s made three All-Star teams. In 2010 he led the AL in ERA. The year before that he tied for the league lead in wins with 19. On June 17, 2008 against the Florida Marlins he struck out the side in the fourth inning, on [...]
