Segura setting table with hits, not walks

If you're looking for a leadoff hitter who'll work deep into counts and draw walks on a regular basis, Jean Segura isn't your man. But that doesn't mean Segura hasn't been outstanding as the guy atop the Mariners' lineup this season.

Mariners notebook: Servais hopes James Pazos builds confidence after scoreless outing

Mariners manager Scott Servais is hoping James Pazos’ appearance in Tuesday night’s extra-innings win over the Red Sox will be the start of another run of effectiveness for the 26-year-old reliever after a rough stretch this month. Pazos had a season ERA of 2.91 after a scoreless inning of work on July 3, but it ballooned up to 4.10 as he allowed six earned runs over his next...

Marco Gonzales: Pitching like he has something to prove (because he does)

Seattle’s newest LHP begins his Mariners career with a clear goal in mind. Yesterday, in the shadow of a brilliant Mt. Rainier, Marco Gonzales made his debut as a member of the Mariners system. Gonzales, traded for top prospect Tyler O’Neill four days ago, went six innings, walking one and striking out five while allowing six hits and three earned runs, although all of those...

King Felix v. 2017

Felix Hernandez is undoubtedly one of baseball’s greatest active pitchers: with six All-Star appearances, a Cy Young Award and two second-place appearances, King Félix ranks 13th among active players with 52.4 WAR. At 31 years old, he should have many effective years ahead of him. However, a calf injury in 2016 limited him to 153 ⅓ innings — the first time since 2008 he pitched...

James Paxton is Masterful, Makes Monday Fun

Paxton’s piercing blue eyes dazzle Red Sox For years, the experience of watching a Mariner game has been dichotomous. About four out of five games have been uncertain. Sometimes we’d have a Roenis Elias throwing a complete-game shutout. Sometimes we’d have a Hector Noesi absolutely bombing it in the first inning. Most often, we’d have a Blake Beaven throwing five or six mediocre...

What James Paxton Throws

For the first year in a long time, Seattle’s ace pitcher is not Felix Hernandez; instead, 28-year old left-hander James Paxton is leading the Mariners rotation. Paxton first reached the major leagues in 2013, but injuries limited him to just 74 innings in 2014 and 67 in 2015. Mostly healthy in 2016, early-season ineffectiveness relegated him to the minors until June. After his...

Mariners and Cardinals Swap Upside For Depth

Heading into the year, the Mariners plan seemed to be to acquire as many low-ceiling middling prospects as he could find and throw them all at the wall, hoping one or two would help stabilize the back end of the team’s rotation. Over the last year and change, they’ve acquired and started Ariel Miranda, Dillon Overton, Chase De Jong, Chris Heston, Christian Bergman, and Ryan Weber...

Seattle Mariners Trade Rumors: will they be buyers or sellers?

The Seattle Mariners have entered the All-Star Break four games under .500, at 43-47. Despite a dismal 4-8 stretch to close the first half of the season, they sit just four games back of a wild card spot and are faced with an interesting dilemma. They must now decide whether to be buyers or sellers at the upcoming MLB trade deadline. With an aging core, and a farm system that is...

Nelson Cruz stops All-Star Game for photo with Joe West

The 2017 MLB All-Star Game no longer counts for home field advantage in the World Series, and has subsequently been a bit more light-hearted than in previous seasons.That was made quite obvious in the top of the sixth inning, when Seattle Mariners slugger Nelson Cruz stepped up to the plate with his cell phone and prompted catcher Yadier Molina to take a picture of himself with home...
