GOODYEAR, Ariz. - Felix Hernandez left in the second inning of his final tuneup before Seattle's opener.

INDIANS 8, MARINERS 6 (AT GOODYEAR BALLPARK)

THE FACTS: Felix Hernandez closed his spring Tuesday with a thud by allowing seven runs and five hits in 1 2/3 innings against Cleveland in Goodyear. That makes 14 runs and 13 hits in 12 1/3 innings over four starts. Next outing: Monday in the season opener against the Los Angeles Angels at Safeco Field. Hernandez is 5-0 with a 1.52 ERA in seven career starts on opening day. That guy was nowhere in sight Tuesday. “Mechanically was the problem,” Hernandez said. “I was up. I was up the entire game…I was flying open. I was falling down. I was … Read more »

Mariners notebook: Hernandez now a `100 percent’ pick to pitch season opener

PEORIA, Ariz. — What was once a near-certainty is now absolute. Manager Lloyd McClendon previously cited staff ace Felix Hernandez as having a “99.9999 percent” chance of starting the season opener on April 6 against the Los Angeles Angels at Safeco Field. Asked Saturday whether that was still the case, McClendon provided new odds: “He’s up to 100 percent.” It will be Hernandez’s seventh straight, and eighth overall, start in a season opener.

Mariners recap: Roenis Elias gives up grand slam; Felix Hernandez dominant but takes loss

The loss to Kansas City had a familiar feel. Felix Hernandez was dominant — one run in six innings — and departed trailing, 1-0. The Royals added two more runs…

CUBS 12, MARINERS 10 (AT SLOAN PARK IN MESA)

   THE FACTS: Let’s just say the Mariners did their part Saturday to force the Chicago Cubs to re-think those plans to send super prospect Kris Bryant to the minors. Bryant hit a pair of no-doubt homers — a two-run blast against Felix Hernandez and a three-run laser against Kevin Correia. Neither were good pitches, but Bryant sure didn’t miss them. The Cubs also got homers from Addison Russell and Wellington Castillo in their slugfest victory. For all that, the Mariners made it interesting by scoring twice in the sixth and three time in the eighth. Hernandez shrugged off his dreadful...

3/21: Open game thread

Happy Felix Day! Well today was supposed to be a sort of preview of Game One of the World Series, with our very own Felix Hernandez facing off against the Cubs' new $155 million dollar man, Jon Lester. Lester, however, was pulled from today's start with what the Cubs are calling a "dead arm period," which I guess is different from a serious dead arm, and hopefully different from a period too, and now this is just getting weird. He's expected to be fine, though, so we'll just have to wait until October to see this matchup actually take shape. Of course, the good news is that it's still Felix...
Elias to start Sunday vs. Dodgers while Hernandez faces minor leaguers

Elias to start Sunday vs. Dodgers while Hernandez faces minor leaguers

PEORIA, Ariz. — While Felix Hernandez pitches Sunday against a collection of minor leaguers on a back field, lefty Roenis Elias will start against the Los Angeles Dodgers at Peoria Stadium. Elias is in need of a bounce-back outing in his competition with Taijuan Walker for the rotation’s final spot. Elias gave up two runs on four hits and a walk Monday against Colorado in a piggyback start behind Hernandez. “He was a little erratic with his command,” McClendon said. “He was probably a little hyped up. He’s better than that. He pitched behind in the count quite a bit. … ...

Hernandez pitches two scoreless innings in spring debut

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — So here it starts. Felix Hernandez’s first spring outing came Tuesday when he delivered two scoreless innings for the Mariners in a messy 9-3 loss to Colorado at Salt River Fields. He threw just 18 pitches, walked one, struck out none and his own assessment — which amounted to “meh” — is as good as any when grading one of the game’s top pitchers. “Not bad,” Hernandez shrugged. “For the first time, pretty good. I walked somebody. That’s not good. After that, I was fine.” Manager Lloyd McClendon offered Hernandez the opportunity for more work in...

Dominic Leone spoils first start for Felix Hernandez as Mariners lose, 9-3

The Mariners dropped to .500 in the standings that don't mean too much. 1:00 p.m. today was a bizarre time on the Twitter front for many Mariners fans. Most likely, as a fan of Seattle sports, there is a good chance you also follow various people who are enthusiastic about the Seahawks. Usually, leading up to a Felixday, Twitter is full of people talking about how excited they are to see Felix, blah blah blah he is ours. Today was a bit different. For starters, this spring training game wasn't broadcast on TV, so no one except for those hanging out in Arizona would get to see Felix...

No marquee match-up Sunday between Hernandez and Kershaw

  PEORIA, Ariz. — Felix Hernandez and Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw are each starting Tuesday — both against Colorado. How’s that for a tough split-squad doubleheader? The Rockies’ troubles aside, the starts by Hernandez and Kershaw line them up for a potential marquee match-up Sunday when the Dodgers play the Mariners at Peoria Stadium. Only it won’t happen. Hernandez’s start Sunday will come on a practice field on the Mariners’ side of the Peoria Sports Complex against a collection of minor-league players. Manager Lloyd McClendon doesn’t want the Dodgers to get an advance...

McClendon sets spring debuts for Hernandez, Rodney

PEORIA, Ariz. — Felix Hernandez will make his spring debut Wednesday when the Mariners play Colorado at Peoria Stadium. Manager Lloyd McClendon also revealed All-Star closer Fernando Rodney will pitch Sunday in Goodyear against Cincinnati. “They’re both well ahead of schedule,” McClendon said. Hernandez is, pretty much, in line with his 2014 approach. He made his debut last spring on March 4 — 27 days before pitching the season opener. His start Wednesday will be 26 days prior to his projected start against the Angels in the season opener. Rodney is slightly ahead of schedule. His...
