Blake Beavan still could miss his next start, though the Seattle Mariners right-hander is feeling better a day after he was forced to leave his start in the third inning after taking a line drive off his right arm. Manager Eric Wedge said on Tuesday that Beavan had increased range of motion in his arm, but it was still too early to determine if Beavan will make his next scheduled start on Sunday in New York. Beavan was forced out of Monday's game after being hit by the liner off the bat of Miguel Cabrera. The liner ricocheted off Beavan to third baseman Kyle Seager and started a 1-5-4-3 double play that ended the inning. Beavan was replaced in the fourth inning by reliever Hisashi Iwakuma, who could be Seattle's main option to start if Beavan can't go against the Yankees.

Jesus Montero runs off field after losing track of outs

Catchers are generally lauded for being captains on the field and having their heads in the game more than most players. Unfortunately, that could not be said for Jesus Montero on Monday night.

What Kind of Chins Do The Mariners Have?

Can the Mariners take a punch? Easy, easy, I’m talking figuratively. I say that because the Tigers are in town tonight to open a three-game series. Item one in the Detroit memory bank is the Mariners coming to the Motor City, taking the Tigers apart April 24-26 in a three-game sweep, outscoring them 21-9.

Jesus Montero loses track of outs, runs off field (Video)

The game of baseball can tend to be a long one and at times, players can lose track of how many outs there are in the game. It happened last night to Mariners catcher Jesus Montero against the Detroit Tigers as he started running off the field after a strike-out of Brandon Inge assuming that it was the final out of the inning. Sadly for Jesus, it wasn't: (Courtesy...

Catching: The Hidden Talents

Mariners catcher Miguel Olivo is in his 11th season in the major leagues, and while it is fair to say that he hasn't ever truly lived up to expectations for some, the 33-year-old's impact on the game shouldn't be discounted.
