Found June 22, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
The Seattle Mariners have placed outfielder Michael Morse on the 15-day disabled list with a right quadriceps injury and have activated Franklin Gutierrez from the 60-day DL. Triple-a outfielder Eric Thames has been designated for assignment to make room on the 40-man roster. According to Greg Johns from ESPN, Morse has been dealing with right quad problems for the last several weeks after hurting it against the San Diego Padres on May 28th when he was thrown out at home and left the game immediately. Morse has appeared in only 11 of Seattle's last 23 games and is batting a disappointing .251 this season. The Mariners finally put him on the disabled list with the ability to activate Gutierrez from his rehab assignment. This will not be Morse's first DL stint this season as he landed on the DL earlier with a fractured pinkie in April. The Mariners will look to use Gutierrez immediately as he is in the lineup to face the Oakland Athletics tonight batting sixth and playing in center field.

Seattle Mariners: Deals by the deadline?

For 2013, the Seattle Mariners find themselves almost to the midway point.  The key in the offseason was to address the offense, which they did and has paid dividends.  The Mariners have gotten nice offensive boosts from Michael Morse, Raul Ibanez, and Kendrys Morales.  However, record wise, the Mariners are a little below what they probably hoped for at the beginning of the season...

Morales waits for another pitch after ball four

Your browser does not support iframes. Seattle Mariners DH Kendrys Morales had an embarrassing moment during Saturday's game at Safeco Field as he was caught losing track of the count during his seventh inning at-bat. Morales took a 3-2 pitch low for ball four, but continued to stand in the batter's box preparing for the next pitch. Eventually Morales made it to first...

MLB Analysis: Jack Z’s Mariners youth movement

You’re Up, Kid There is one silver lining to being terrible for long periods of time – lots and lots of top prospects. I think I’m FINALLY starting to see Jack Z’s big plan for the Seattle Mariners. Tank and tank until you have no tanking left, and then tank some more. As the record falls, the draft pick rises. We then find ourselves with Mike Zunino, Nick Franklin and Danny...

Is Eric Thames Worth a Look?

Eric Thames was designated for assignment yesterday by the Seattle Mariners to make room for the returning Franklin Gutierrez from the 60-day DL. Thames has not seen action in the Major Leagues yet in 2013 but has hit well in the Pacific Coast League for the Tacoma Rainiers (.295/.382/.479, 7 HR, 3 SB). Is Thames worth the phone call to Seattle? What they would get Thames, 26, is...

Mariners’ Franklin Gutierrez exits with leg tightness

The injury issues continue for Seattle Mariners outfielder Franklin Gutierrez. Two games after his return from the disabled list, manager Eric Wedge told reporters – including Greg Johns of MLB.com – that Gutierrez exited the M’s contest against the Oakland Athletics due to tightness in his leg. "His legs tightened up on him again, so we'll see how he feels...

Seattle Mariners: When will Jack Z’s plan work?

It’s been a long time since 2001, even longer since 1995 when Junior rounded third to the tune of Dave Niehaus’s voice. Here we are in 2013 watching those Seattle Mariners at the bottom of the AL west looking to let this season slip away again. The M’s sit at 33-43 and 10.5 games out of first place not even to the All-Star break yet. It is year five of the Jack Zduriencik regime...

Mariners 7, Athletics 5

Nick Franklin had tiebreaking two-run single in the eighth inning for his third hit of the game, lifting the Seattle Mariners to a 7-5 win over the Oakland Athletics on Saturday night. Brendan Ryan singled off Ryan Cook (1-1) to lead off the eighth. Ryan moved up on a wild pitch and advanced to third on Endy Chavez's bunt single. Chavez took second on indifference before Franklin...

Mariners rumors: Seattle not trading Hisashi Iwakuma

The Seattle Mariners once again find themselves in fourth place of the American League West. Due to the fact that the Houston Astros have joined the division, they’re not technically in the basement, but Seattle is still not expected to compete this season. For this reason, people are speculating the Mariners could look to sell players to improve their chances for the future...

Mariners 6, Athletics 3(10)

Pinch-hitter Kendrys Morales had a game-ending three-run homer in the 10th inning and Raul Ibanez connected twice for the Seattle Mariners in a 6-3 victory over the Oakland Athletics on Sunday. Ibanez gave the Mariners the lead with a two-run homer in the first inning and added a solo shot in the third, his team-leading 17th. It was his second multihomer game this season and 18th...

2013 Fantasy Baseball: The Week 13 Closer Report

The Seattle Mariners’ bullpen continues to intrigue, the Boston Red Sox bullpen continues to confuse and could we see a reunion in Beantown to solve those woes and the Papa Grande era in Detroit is over (or at least on indefinite hold). Seattle Mariners I covered the Mariners’ pen last week, but had very little data to go on. As we near the end of another week, a couple of more...
