Ahead in the Count

Blake Beavan is not an exciting pitcher. He doesn’t have electric movement or blazing speed. At least, his pitches don’t. I haven’t seen him on the dance floor. Although he once threw in the mid-90s, he doesn’t much anymore and he mostly throws fastballs in the strike zone that look rather pedestrian and ordinary. He looks like the sort of pitcher who should get shelled a...

Mariners Unable to Overcome Early Deficit Against Rays

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...

My oh My! The top play of the week for the Seattle Mariners (video)

The force is with Ichiro On Sunday after noon at Tropicana Field, the Mariners were not the only out of state visitors in the Tampa Bay area. It was also Star Wars day at the Trop, and Ichiro took full advantage of this to make an out of this world catch in the bottom of the first. Defense is about the only thing that Ichiro can still do well at the ripe old age of 38, but, if...

Mariners' Beavan shows improvement in return from minors

The last time the Seattle Mariners saw Blake Beavan, he was saying his goodbyes after having given up 17 runs over the space of three starts in late May and early June. Beavan was sent down after that to work on his game. He returned Tuesday, and despite giving up five runs in six innings in a 9-6 win over the Kansas City Royals, he showed signs of the progress the Mariners had...

Beavan's next start may get pushed back

Blake Beavan is a ''longshot'' to make his scheduled start on Sunday for the Seattle Mariners, but manager Eric Wedge wouldn't rule out the possibility. Wedge said Wednesday that Beavan won't throw until Friday. Beavan had to leave his start on Monday night after getting hit in the arm by a Miguel Cabrera line drive.

Beavan (elbow) remains questionable for Sunday start

The Seattle Mariners still have some time before they have to decide which pitcher will start for them Sunday in Yankee Stadium. It could be Blake Beavan. It's his turn in the rotation, but he took a nasty line drive off his right elbow in Monday's start. He said he had trouble sleeping with the elbow elevated Monday night, and on Tuesday, the elbow and forearm were heavily...

M's Beavan better after getting hit on arm

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...

Blake Beavan's Poor Pitch Selection

Reconnaissance work on Starting Pitchers for the upcoming season brought me to Blake Beavan of the Seattle Mariners. Beavan is not, yet, expected to win a spot in big league rotation, but he’s 6’7” 240 lbs. and he started 15 games for the Mariners, as a 22-year old, last season. So, there is reason for optimism. In fact, the Mariners are displaying some confidence by starting...
