Mariners Replace Good Closer with Good Closer

The Mariners lost Tom Wilhelmsen last year, not to injury, but to whatever it is that capriciously claims the effectiveness of relievers with otherwise quality stuff. In stepped Danny Farquhar, one of two guys the Mariners got for Ichiro in a deal interpreted as nothing other than a dump and a favor. At the time, […]

Seattle Mariners rumors: Closer edition

The position of closer looked to be one of strength for the Seattle Mariners going into 2013.  Tom Wilhelmsen stepped into the closer’s role after Brandon League was traded to the Dodgers, and he had a fine 2012 saving 29 games with a 2.50 ERA and a 1.11 WHIP.  He came hot out of the gate in 2013 saving 8 games in April with a 0.75 ERA, but a disastrous June (0-2, 4 saves, 3...

Mariners demote Tom Wilhelmsen to Triple-A

Mariners optioned RHP Tom Wilhelmsen to Triple-A Tacoma. Wilhelmsen was the Mariners' closer just one week ago but his implosion against the Red Sox last Thursday was apparently the last straw. The 29-year-old has a disappointing 4.37 ERA and 35/26 K/BB ratio over 47 1/3 inning this season. Danny Farquhar is the pitcher to own in his bullpen right now.

The Reason for Seattle Mariner Tom Wilhelmsen’s Struggles

Is Wilhelmsen’s bad fastball location leading to an inordinate amount of hard hit balls? Tom Wilhelmsen has amazing stuff.  He has a 95-97 mph fastball and probably the best curveball of any right hander in the MLB.  In 2012 he had an incredible season; 9.87 K/9, 29 saves, and a sparkling 2.50 ERA backed up by a 2.89 Fielder Independent Pitching (FIP) score, which demonstrated...

Seattle Mariners: Closer by committee fails

The bullpen seems a little bit like a scape goat for the Seattle Mariners’ problems in 2013, but the facts are going against them.  After Tom Wilhelmsen came blazing out out of the gates, a bad June moved him out of the closer’s role and moved Seattle into a closer by committee.  Despite the insistence of some that the save is an overrated stat, the committee never seems to...

Seattle Mariners swept four straight in Clevleand

The Seattle Mariners don’t play the Cleveland Indians again until July 22nd.  After this weekend, that might be too soon.  Seattle can now refer to Cleveland as “heartbreak city” as the Mariners lost three times on walk-offs, twice in extra innings.  The red-hot Indians posted a four-game sweep, sending Seattle to 20-25 on the season and 2-5 on a road trip that started promising...

Tom Wilhelmsen Thrives With Fastball

Tom Wilhelmsen converted his seventh save of the season Monday night against the Orioles, tossing a scoreless ninth inning. The appearance marked his 16th straight without allowing an earned run, a span encompassing 19.2 innings pitched. Wilhelmsen brandishes a three-pitch arsenal, using a curve and change along with his fastball. But it’s the fastball — averaging 95.8 MPH, 14th...

GIF: Tom Wilhelmsen Delivers the Most Knee-Buckling Pitch of the Weekend

Over the weekend, the White Sox continued their winning ways by taking two out of three games from the Seattle Mariners. That makes 14 wins in 16 games for the surging Sox, who now sit atop the AL Central by 2.5 games. However, in the one game the White Sox lost weekend, Mariners pitcher Tom Wilhelmsen made them – and one player in particular – look absolutely silly. Here is...
