Mariners Series Recap: Mariners think they have it all, only to have it YANKed out from under them

Robinson Cano Hits his 2nd HR of the game Saturday in New York. The Mariners arrived in New York City on Friday, for a three game series against the Yankees. Today, they found themselves stumbling out of that city, after suffering a 1-2 series loss. Mind you, both of the losses experienced were extremely close, and were due to a playoff-caliber team’s resilience; something the...

The Long Road Back For Jesus Montero

Back when the New York Yankees and Seattle Mariners executed the trade in 2012 that sent pitcher Michael Pineda to New York for, at the time, catcher and top prospect Jesus Montero along with pitcher Hector Noesi, both players were being talked about as big time pieces for their new respective clubs. Pineda was just coming off of an All Star appearance in his first year, and Montero...

Mariners Series Racap: Orange County Angels Manage a split with the M’s

The Mariners continued their recent roller coaster ride, splitting a 4 game series with the Santa Ana Angels of Irvine. Good starts by Felix and the return of the Iwakuma of the last 2 years highlighted the series, but the Mariners were unable to pull out the series win headed into the All-Star Break. Thursday’s game saw Felix being Felix. He was dominant in 7 strong innings of...

The Call-Up: The Second Coming of Montero

Jesus Montero fields grounders at first base in Spring Training Late yesterday, in a strange but logical maneuver, the M’s sent JA Happ down to Single-A Bakersfield.  Don’t worry, Happ will be back the 3rd game after the All-star break. The team used the same tactic last year with Roenis Elias to open a roster spot for flexibility around the break. The significance here...

Mariners get creative in order to call up Montero from Triple-A

First baseman/slugger Jesus Montero was recalled by the Seattle Mariners on Thursday, but the move didn't come easily. With little space on the 25-man roster for maneuvering, the club opted to send lefty J.A. Happ (who has made 17 starts this season) to Single-A Bakersfield.  The thinking behind that decision was that Happ is not scheduled to pitch before the All-Star Break begins...

Michael Pineda Outduels Felix Hernandez in Seattle

Back in 2012, the Mariners and Yankees executed a trade that sent pitcher Michael Pineda to the Yankees for catcher and big bat Jesus Montero. The Yankees were in search of pitching at the time while the Mariners were in dire need of a bat and that is why this was supposedly a great trade for both sides. Pineda had just made the All Star game for Seattle while Montero was breaking...

Nelson Cruz: Better Than Advertised But M’s Still Need Help

Mariners Struggling, Montero Could Be Answer I can’t say enough good things about Nelson Cruz a month into his Seattle Mariners mega-contract.  Cruz has been everything advertised, and more. Before the 2015 campaign for the M’s got underway I stated, quite emphatically, that I’d be thrilled if Cruz hit just 25 homers on the year.  It turns out the Cruz might just hit 25...

Jesus Montero Looking for Redemption

Could Jesus Montero Be A Sleeper Contributor For The Seattle Mariners In 2015?

Much has been made of the Seattle Mariners offensive additions this offseason, ranging from the big free agent signing of Nelson Cruz to the trades for Seth Smith and Justin Ruggiano to the under the radar signing of Rickie Weeks. But every once in a while the potential surprise “addition” to a team comes in the form of a player an organization has all but written off. Is it...

Bigger, faster, stronger? Not everybody at spring training

PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) Big and bloated or slim and sleek, plenty of big league players showed up to spring training this year looking nothing like they did last season. Ryan Howard trimmed down. CC Sabathia bulked up. Jered Weaver packed on muscle, Jesus Montero shed some flab. They all transformed their bodies with varying intentions, some hoping it leads to bounce-back seasons, others...

Mariners' Montero looks for new beginning with new look

PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) Jesus Montero did not report to spring training out of shape. And for the Seattle Mariners and their fans, that's worth noting. Especially with many still waiting for Montero to prove himself as a major leaguer. Montero, once regarded as the future of the Mariners at catcher, isn't just a slimmer and trimmer version of his old self. He's also contrite, reading...
