Game 104, Orioles at Mariners

Chris Young vs. Bud Norris, 1:10pm Well that was frustrating. The M’s made Kevin Gausman look incredible, and they couldn’t convert several chances to knock a run in, forcing the game to extra innings. Kendrys Morales had the M’s sole RBI, but a late game K against lefty Brian Matusz left a sour taste; he’s This post came from: U.S.S. Mariner, and is copyright by the authors.

Mariners notebook: Kendrys Morales admits he’s surprised to be back

Kendrys Morales says his return to the Mariners ‘sort of came together quickly.’

Mariners notebook: Morales admits he’s surprised to be back

SEATTLE — Did Kendrys Morales’ return to the Mariners make you go, “What?” He knows how you feel. “It caught me by surprise,” Morales admitted prior to batting cleanup Friday as the Mariners’ designated hitter against the Baltimore Orioles at Safeco Field. “But I feel good to be back here and be with the teammates I had a year ago…It sort of came together quickly. It’s just a surprise, but I’m glad to be here.” The Mariners reacquired Morales, 31, in a Thursday trade from Minnesota for minor-league reliever Stephen Pryor. The move came after numerous failed attempts...

Friday's lineups and pregame notes for Orioles vs. Mariners - Kendrys Morales batting fourth

  Kendrys Morales makes his 2014 debut the with Mariners tonight. He will  bat clean-up as the designated hitter. The Mariners have gone lefty heavy against hard throwing right-hander Kevin Gausman. Per Fangraphs, Gausman's average fastball has been 95.1 mph. Here's his splits this season, which aren't too dramatic.   Robinson Cano is the only member of the Mariners that has faced Gausman in the big leagues. He went 2-for-3 in his only meeting. Not sure if Mike Zunino played against him in college. Here's the Orioles' numbers vs. Felix Hernandez. Obviously, Nellie Cruz has the most...

Mariners send down Jesus Montero to make room on roster for Kendrys Morales

The pinball machine that is the Seattle Mariners’ roster resulted in another casualty Friday, as first baseman/designated hitter Jesus Montero was sent back to Triple-A Tacoma — one day after his latest promotion — to make room for newly acquired 1B/DH Kendrys Morales. Montero, 24, started Thursday’s 4-0 loss to the Baltimore Orioles as Seattle’s […]

Does the addition of Kendrys Morales really improve the Mariners? Magic 8-ball says... outlook not so good.

What does adding Kendrys Morales mean for the Mariners moving forward? So far this season, Kendrys Morales has appeared in 39 games, accumulating 162 plate appearances. He has been... not very good. His season slash line rests at an ultra meager .234/.259/.325. For comparison, last year after 162 plate appearances Morales was hitting .268/.358/.415. His 2014 performance represents a precipitous decline. What's going on? In attempting to determine a potential reason for this sharp drop in offensive production, it seems as though Morales may be pressing a bit this year. (This wouldn't be...

Mariners underscore need for Morales (and more) in 4-0 loss to Orioles

SEATTLE — If the Mariners sought to make Kendrys Morales feel needed upon his return, then mission accomplished. Thursday’s weak 4-0 rollover loss to Baltimore was nothing if not an ongoing cry for offensive help. They got five hits, all singles, in eight innings against Orioles lefty Wei-Yin Chen. They failed to get a runner past first after the first inning. They also surrendered their lead in the American League wild-card race. All that was missing was a fly-over plane dragging a banner: Save us, Kendrys! The Orioles, who lead the AL East by three games, took command with a four-run...

TFD: Josmil Pinto was a much better Twins DH than Kendrys Morales

When the Twins acquired Kendrys Morales in early June, most of us figured two things: 1) it was probably a rental and 2) in spite of that, it was worth the money and gamble because he would probably help out a stagnant offense. As part of that, Josmil Pinto, who had been getting at-bats as DH, was shipped back to the minors to work on his catching. That’s a good thing. But as it turns out, the Twins missed Pinto’s bat. And that’s a bad thing. Morales was traded to the Mariners today, as you probably knew. Here are the comps between he and Pinto this season with the Twins: Morales: 162...

Mariners bring up Jesus Montero, Chris Taylor; Willie Bloomquist to DL

Hours after reacquiring Kendrys Morales from the Minnesota Twins, the Seattle Mariners continued to tinker with their offense, bringing shortstop Chris Taylor and designated hitter Jesus Montero up from Triple-A Tacoma while placing infielder Willie Bloomquist on the 15-day disabled list.
