Mariners’ Marc Rzepczynski looking to be more than a lefty specialist

PEORIA, Ariz. – On Wednesday, Mariners relief pitcher Marc Rzepczynski made his seventh appearance of the spring without surrendering an earned run.

Projecting Max Schrock, the Return for Marc Rzepczynski

A 13th-round pick last year, infielder Max Schrock — received by Oakland today from Washington in exchange for left-handed reliever Marc Rzepczynski — has made something of a name for himself by putting up strong offensive numbers in the lower levels.
