Noesi remains on track for Mariners' rotation

Associated Press  |  Last updated March 18, 2012
Hector Noesi remains on track for a slot in the Seattle Mariners' starting rotation. Noesi allowed two runs over four innings before rain canceled Seattle's game against a Colorado Rockies' split squad Sunday with the Mariners ahead 3-2 in the top of the fifth. ''I think I'm doing good this spring,'' said Noesi, acquired from the Yankees along with catcher Jesus Montero in the trade that sent pitcher Michael Pineda to New York. ''I learn about everything every time I go out there. Just my mechanics were a little open.'' In his third spring-training start, Noesi threw two wild pitches, walked two and allowed four hits. Colorado had runners at the corners with no outs when rain and hail caused a 34-minute delay, then cancellation. Rockies right-hander Tyler Chatwood allowed three runs, seven hits and three walks with three strikeouts in 3 2-3 innings. None of the spring training stats count because of the rainout. ''Toward the end I got a little gassed and got a little ahead of myself instead of just staying within myself and trusting my stuff,'' said Chatwood, who is competing for the fifth spot in the Rockies' starting rotation. Kyle Seager tied the score at 2 with his third home run of spring training, a two-run drive in the fourth. Chone Figgins had two hits for Seattle, the second a run-scoring single off Chatwood. Figgins made his third start of the spring at shortstop and has also played second base, third base and center field as the Mariners look for a position for a veteran who has struggled for much of his time in Seattle. ''He's had a lot of hard outs this spring,'' Mariners manager Eric Wedge said. ''He enjoys playing. I don't think he's really too concerned about where he's playing, he just enjoys playing and it really helps us out, the fact that he is that versatile.'' Colorado's Eric Young Jr. doubled and scored on Tim Wheeler's sacrifice fly in the first inning and a pair of Noesi wild pitches allowed Jordan Pacheco to score after a walk. NOTES: The Mariners were without SS Brendan Ryan (quadriceps) for a third straight game. Ryan could return to action at shortstop as soon as Monday, Wedge said. ... The seven Mariners relievers who were scheduled to pitch Sunday but didn't get in the game are to throw in a minor league game or a bullpen session Monday. ... Montero was unavailable due to illness but is expected to be in the lineup at designated hitter Monday. ... The Rockies were to have sent a split squad to Tucson to play the San Diego Padres on Sunday, but due to weather concerns that game was postponed to Thursday afternoon, also in Tucson.
